Whenever my husband and I go to banff, Irwin's mountain inn is our favorite place to stay, and this time was no exception! The location is perfect, the service is so friendly and the rooms are very comfy. We love that we can soak in the hot tub after hiking, make our appetizers in the room's kitchenette and then easily...

We wanted to hike Tunnel Mtn and the hotel is right across the street. The staff were very friendly, the room cosy and the hot tub area very clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends, couples and families.

My friend and I recently spent 4 nights here, and it was great. I loved being able to just walk out the front door and join the nightly promenade up and down Banff Avenue. The staff was friendly and helpful. The parking is a bit snug, but we were always able to find a spot. The WiFi is great. Our...

We had the pleasure of spending three nights here. This hotel is not new and is showing its age. Having said that our room was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfy.

Hotel accommodations were modest and plain, but it fit the bill for what we were looking for - reasonably-priced lodging for our first night before a long week of hiking and camping. The beds were comfortable, the showers were clean and well-maintained, there was an in-room mini-fridge, and the front desk folks were nice. Our room had a window AC...

There was nothing special about Irwin's Mountain Inn but nothing major to complain about either. The front desk staff was friendly, and the room was clean. The bed was comfortable, and the balcony overlooking Banff Ave was a nice option. Parking was a bit of an issue - the underground parkade is small and not recommended for any vehicle bigger...

Thanks for taking the time to write your review of your stay with us. Irwin's has worked hard on listening to our guests surrounding the Air Conditioning at our property.

What a lovely discovery this place was! I heard about it through my sister, who had stayed there before. Unbelievably good value for your dollar.

Picking a place to stay in Banff that won't break the bank is not easy, particularly if you need a good night's sleep to go hiking in Banff and Jasper National Parks the next day. However, Irwin's fit the bill for our one night stay! While the room was slightly small, it had plenty of furniture which all seemed relatively...

There is barely any parking. Parking for Cars is underground, if you park in the tiny lot, they ask you to move it. I would not recommend staying here if you have a Truck or larger vehicle as chances are high to getting scratched in the small lot. They never called us to tell us there was a large Race...

Cons: Parking got a little crowded on the weekend, (we always had a spot though). When you come in from the parking garage through the hall area it smells a bit, however the laundry room is on that floor as well. (No deal breakers there which is why I kept the 5 rating). Pros: Everything else, I was floored to...
