Reviewed 18 July 2017 via mobile

A good location in Banff, away from the busyness but close enough to walk the town. The rooms were very neat & clean, even had a small balcony to relax on. The staff was friendly & helpful. There is an elevator & fresh beverages in the lobby

When we checked in we received a cool reception from the girl behind the counter. Didn't know anything; pointed to the rack of brochures about tours, etc. and said we could help ourselves or go to the visitor center if we wanted information. The room was horribly hot; the air conditioning not working. Although there were two people at the font desk neither offered to come to the room and look to make sure unit was set properly. Asked for a fan; they didn't have any. So miserably hot we kept windows open and noise from street kept us up past 2 am. Took a shower; water did not drain. Maintenance came; air conditioner was not set properly. Cleaned gunk out of drain and left bathtub dirty. When we checked out the man at front desk said he was ready for us to leave; they had new people checking in. Facility is in need of maintenance; everything worn; people who work there don't understand about customer service. Exception: the girls who clean the rooms do a good job and came to check to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.

Room Tip: If there are no other hotels available stay here.

I stayed at the High Country Inn with 3 friends for 2 nights. We had a nice quiet room with two queen beds and a balcony over looking the main strip. It was nice to have the sink and mirror separate from the locked shower/tub and toilet. Complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby with quiet comfortable sitting area, All and all a nice comfortable stay with no frills.

We shared a suite with our adult kids. The view was nice from the bedroom and living/bedroom area. I enjoyed the decor of fireplace and black iron animal fixtures.
A small frig and microwave and sink area was nice. There was only one bath but the kids got the room with the Jacuzzi tub. Most people walk to downtown from here to shop and dine. Parking was underground but not a problem.

We had a nice room with a comfortable king bed.
We chose the hotel for proximity to restaurants (all within walking distance). They put double doors on the balcony which definitely helped with the street noise.
Unfortunately our room was next the wooden stair case. Guests roll their suitcases down it at all hours, so not much sleep in this room. Definitely ask for a room away from the stairs, it is worse than being by the elevator.
Nice staff!
Did not eat here, but did have a drink in the bar and the bartender was awesome.

Thank you Kindly Tcinaz for reviewing the High Country Inn here in beautiful Banff! We sincerely appreciate your feedback regarding our rooms, location and the concerns you had with hallway noise. It's always our main goal to have our guests leave happy and it sounds as though we accomplished this during your stay? Next time you stay with us simply mention that you would like a room placed away from the middle staircase and we can assign your room at the time of booking.

Kindest Regards,

Jordan Irwin
General Manager
