Dated room, but super comfort

The room has dated furniture, but it's clean and beds are very comfortable. That's all we need after a tiring day of hiking. The sister hotel next door has nice Jacuzzi, seam room and pool that we can use. The location is convenient to restaurants.

Decent value for Banff

Beware of the train horn sounds which blast all night long.

Just another basic motel

Close to town center, perfect if you're always outside enjoying the area and hardly in the room.

Good location for downtown Banff

Bed mattresses were too hard. Unhappy that the hotel charges ONE DOLLAR for each LOCAL call. Staff helpful. Housekeeping did a good job. Would have been nice to include, at least, a continental breakfast.

Unbeatable location for the price

We were transferred to the hotel next door since they were left with no rooms. The staff at the hotel was very helpful. The location was outstanding. 2 blocks from the main street
