Reasonably Priced

This hotel was located about 1.5 km from main tourist area, which makes it a little on the far side to walk to. The hotel also does not have air conditioning. However, Banff weather does not really require air conditioning at all. Overall, the hotel is clean. Bathroom shows sign of wear and tear, and it's age. However, bed is comfortable and clean.

Banff Vacation

For a 4 night stay, we were hoping to get a view room, however we looked into another building so privacy wasn't the best.

Banff Vacation

For a 4 night accommodation, we were hoping for a view room. Instead, the parking lot and the building behind us were our friends.

Good value

This is a nice and quiet hotel near the outskirts of Banff but not a long walk from downtown. The restaurant is decent for breakfast either a-la-carte or breakfast buffet. The personnel is very helpful and the room was spacious and clean. Two letdowns -- the wireless connection was either down or extremely slow; and the TV (a nice 32" LC HD) was connected to the analog line so the image wasn't great. The rooms in building B, especially on the 5th floor, have a spectacular view. And if you're lucky, you may get a huge balcony.

Oldie but a Goodie

As most Hotels in Banff are older this one is < but the rooms are large & very clean as well as the linen . Just one night but would use this hotel for longer stays . Heated pool , hot tub (3ft deep) is great , as well as the view while in it .
