My room had a dining table, desk, two beds, mini fridge, microwave, AC and balcony Noise level: loud BUT this is a Banff thing... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, booked online a king room. Check-in was fast, receptionist friendly, and the underground parking was easy and convenient. Our room on the first floor was extremely tiny. I don't mind small rooms, but the layout was not very functional. There was a large table that was completely useless as it was shoved into the corner,... More

This was a nice hotel on a street of indistinguishably nice hotels. They are all quite pricey and all in a good location. Some are closer to the center of town than this, some are further away. We had a very nice stay here, but, as I said, this was a bit expensive compared to where we would normally stay.... More

Thanks for your most recent review and for staying with us. We are glad you chose us! Summer season is busy and parking is as you say a premium. The one perk to our parking situation is that it is indeed FREE. We do have FREE underground parking for minivans and cars and smaller truck/suvs and we do have FREE... More

We wanted to hike Tunnel Mtn and the hotel is right across the street. The staff were very friendly, the room cosy and the hot tub area very clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends, couples and families.

My friend and I recently spent 4 nights here, and it was great. I loved being able to just walk out the front door and join the nightly promenade up and down Banff Avenue. The staff was friendly and helpful. The parking is a bit snug, but we were always able to find a spot. The WiFi is great. Our... More

We had the pleasure of spending three nights here. This hotel is not new and is showing its age. Having said that our room was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfy. We had a small kitchen area with a microwave, frig and sink. The hotel is located on Banff Ave within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants.... More

Hotel accommodations were modest and plain, but it fit the bill for what we were looking for - reasonably-priced lodging for our first night before a long week of hiking and camping. The beds were comfortable, the showers were clean and well-maintained, there was an in-room mini-fridge, and the front desk folks were nice. Our room had a window AC... More

There was nothing special about Irwin's Mountain Inn but nothing major to complain about either. The front desk staff was friendly, and the room was clean. The bed was comfortable, and the balcony overlooking Banff Ave was a nice option. Parking was a bit of an issue - the underground parkade is small and not recommended for any vehicle bigger... More
