“Great Rate & Comfy Beds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

We travelled in Low Season and found an incredible rate online. When checking in, we were even offered a free upgrade. Very friendly place. Rooms were clean, the beds were comfy. I was sorry that we didn't have a chance to check out the restaurant. Maybe next time!

Stayed November 2011, travelled as a couple

Banff is an expensive place to stay so we were very glad to stay here at a good price. We only stayed one night so can't really comment on the service. The front desk person was not busy and pleasant enough but not overly friendly! The rooms were very clean and the linens fresh. Bed was very comfortable. The room was small - there were two queen size beds which made it difficult to move around and our view was of the backpacker hostel next door! However I would recommend this hotel to anyone - the location is fantastic, just a short walk to the cafes, shops etc. Not too much parking if you have a higher vehicle. You can only go into the underground parking if you can get under the quite low barrier! At the price we paid this has to be the best value in Banff at the moment.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view!

We stayed at Irwins Mountain Inn for one night and wished we had more time to stay. It was a wonderful experience from the time we checked in right through to check out. The staff was so friendly and obliging. Our room was very clean, fresh crisp sheets on the beds and lots of towels. We had a great view of the mountain from our deck. We were in a great location, right on main street in Banff and walking distance to all the shops and restaurants.

We stayed at Irwins Mountain Inn for 6 nights as a family of 6. Staff were always polite and obliging. Accomodation is desperately in need of updating but having said that, accomodation was clean but basic. Our room was cleaned every day without fail! No kettle in the room was a little bit of an issue, plus the microwave was there if you provided all cooking utensils and bowls etc. You got just that....a microwave! Eating out around Banff was expensive and very few places actually catered for children! Would have liked to have made more use of the cooking facilities at the hotel if only we had packed the bowls and cooking utensils! haha! We booked the accomodation knowing that it was basic but overall it provided us with a family room for 6 which few other hotels in the area were able to do. We got what we paid for. Leisure facilities were not family friendly. The hot tub was exactly that and far too hot for children of any age. We were pleased overall! But if you are expecting luxury...this is not for you! Great location to downtown Banff and the shops. Good value for money!

Stayed in Banff recently.
Irwin's Inn is the best value in town.
It isn't the fanciest in Banff (so it isn't the priciest) but everything about the hotel felt crisp and clean and there were some thoughtful touches (like the small room key box on my way out to the parking garage so I didn't have to run back upstairs to drop off my key).
Room had everything I needed, internet was quick, got a good rest on very comfortable bed.
Best value in Banff.
