A great location

The room was neat and clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. A great shower.
The front counter staff were lovely and helpful.
A great location – right up the road from all the restaurants and shops, and the shuttle bus pulls right near the hotel.

Best location in Banff

Hotel is steps from all the restaurants and shops in Banff and with underground parking included it makes this hotel ideal, grocery store and beer and wine also available a short walk away
We stayed in room 346 which has a large window view of the street and mountains. The room included a fireplace, comfortable king sized bed, keurig coffee machine, fridge and separate shower and tub.

Fab hotel

We spent a few nights here and had a fab time. Breakfast was well organised and buffet style with eggs, sasusage, bacon, french toast etc. Bed was comfortable and the room was very clean and had a fridge, key rug and kettle. Parking is available onsite although if you’re in a taller vehicle you might prefer to use the outdoor parking lot instead of the indoor as the ceiling is very low indoors. Would definitely stay here again if in Banff.

Excellent hotel

This is an excellent hotel, located centrally on Banff Avenue. With the location it is a few minutes walking distance to many shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel is clean, modern, and comfortable with friendly staff.

Breakfast is included and is of a good quality. Not a lot of variation but still good if staying for a few days. The staff are very helpful and gave me information on ways to get around to certain places, hiring bikes etc.

Perfect for mom and dad + 1

Stayed here for 3 nights with our 4 month old and it was great. Close to downtown and the shops, restaurant onsite delicious, great breakfast buffet that was included. The room was clean and spacious. We had a room with a queen and a king and so we set the play pen up in the front half with the queen bed and we could still stay up and watch TV in the section with the king bed. Comfy bed and pillows. Will definitely stay here next trip to Banff

Great Stay

My wife and I just returned this week after spending 3 nights at this Inn.

The Inn exceeded our expectations from check-in to checkout. The rooms were good size and clean. The breakfast was included and filled us up each morning.

If your looking for an INN that is walking distance to downtown, this is the place to be. I recently torn the cartilage in my knee, so it was important to find a location close to downtown to limit my walking.

I highly recommend this location, great value.
