We stayed at the Mountain Inn in January as a group of 5. Upon being checked in the Front Desk Agent couldn't have appeared less interested and was on his phone the whole time. We went into our room which had enough space, however one of the beds was a sofa bed (which we were aware of) however it wasn't... More

I really like Irwin's, however both times I have been there it is noisy at night. Both times I was there for 2 nights, all nights were noisy. The one night someone locked one of their roommates out of the room so the locked out person was in the hall banging on the door for what seemed like forever in... More

We had a room overlooking the main road. It had a small balcony from which we were afforded views of the surrounding mountains. The bathroom was rather tired looking and the basin was outside the bathroom in the room which in my mind has no advantages and only negatives. The price we paid for the room made it relatively inexpensive,... More

This is a nice hotel rooms are quite small and nothing fancy but clean. They are pet friendly which is a necessity for us with a small balcony which is nice to let the dog out for a sniff once in a while. It is a great location to stroll down to the town center and has a good Mexican/Spanish... More

Spent the weekend here with my husband and we were pleasantly surprised. We had never stayed here before, but were very impressed. Staff are friendly, rooms were clean and spacious, and perhaps we got lucky but it was very quiet at night. If I had to give one criticism, the bathrooms are dated and could use a bit of an... More

Hotel well located.The staff could not be more than helpful.The rooms are of good size and clean. Basically the hotel is good value for the money. The hot tub and sauna are great addition as as El Toro restuarant which is attached to Hotel. Yes there are better hotles in Banff but at a price. The one downside of my... More

Thanks so much for your recent review with us. I appreciate the honest feedback. Your comments are taken seriously and help with the previous review that deems us unreasonable in requesting the dog find proper care during their stay in Banff and not be abandoned for the day and ignore cell phone requests from our Front Desk attendants. We do... More

Stayed here on a family vacation to the mountains for a couple nights this fall. The rooms have high ceilings, plenty of space, windows with views, and a sink outside of the washroom. They are right on the strip.... easy walk to the shopping. On our second night we decided to eat supper at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised... More

We stayed one night on our trip here. We did not have a reservation. The front desk was more the ready to give us a room. It was a nice size and clean with a great view. The hotel location is a little far from the center of town so if you plan on walking be prepared. The only real... More

Thanks so much for your recent review with us. I appreciate your comments and the honesty of your stay. We do acknowledge our parking woes in Banff, and the only thing I can speak to is that despite the tight parking we do not charge for a parked vehicle unlike many others in Banff. I hope that is a small... More

I'm not one for hostels... so when I was planning my trip to Banff I decided to stay at the cheapest accommodation I could find that wasn't a hostel and I ended up booking 5 nights at Irwin's Mountain Inn. I didn't expect much, but I am pleased to say they exceeded my expectations. I arrived a little earlier than... More
