Won't do that again

First of all let me say that this is my very first review. I am not a high maintenance traveler. I would never stay here again. Room was dirty and it smelled horrible!

Good location, family-friendly

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was clean and had comfortable beds. We didn't get a chance to use the pool areas. The staff personal at the front desk we spoke with was friendly and helpful. Stay here was expensive, but similar to others in the area.

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.

Hot, basic accomodations

The hotel is located in the less interesting part of Banff, AB, a too long walking distance. If you are coming with a car, there should be no problem however. Parking is free at the Hotel. The hotel is pretty large, consisting of 4 different buildings most with 4-5 stories. The major problem with the room was the heat and lack of cooling. When we left the room at ~9AM, it was already warmer inside compared with the outside. When we came back at 10PM, it was hot inside. The room comes with a portable fan and we asked for another one. It was difficult to get a good night sleep with the heat. The first room we got was even warmer and seemed not completely clean. The room is clearly dated. Mattress was covered with strange pillow-top arrangement. We had to disconnect 2 lamps to get access to electrical outlets and move a big piece of furniture to get our other fan hooked up. The room had a tiny fridge and had free wifi. The front door was not tightly closed and could move a little, should someone swiftly close another door to create sufficient air pressure. The glass door to an uncleaned balcony could not be properly locked and the screen door handle was covered in dust. On our first night, one staff member did not explain to us where the elevator is (or if there is one at all) and was essentially rude when my wife called to complain about the heat. The entire facility needs some serious renovations, including putting insulation into the walls, install AC (only heating is available), paint, replace the carpet and mattresses, new dual pane glass door, perhaps close off part of the door to increase insulation. The main restaurant in the hotel is sub-par.
