My wife and I stayed here for a weekend and would stay again for sure. Rooms were clean, quiet and staff was great. A very short walk from downtown Banff and restaurant in hotel offered great food as well. Underground parking was a very nice treat also!

Irwin's Mountain Inn is a great place to stay! Front desk staff are friendly and helpful when requests are made, be it more towels or assistance for parking lots. My party had a huge room for 5 with 2 queen beds and one sofa queen bed. There was a microwave, a coffee maker and coffee and tea available in the... More

I've stayed here twice now (2012 and 2014) and would not hesitate in booking again should I ever go back to Banff. The hotel is brilliantly located, the rooms are great sizes, and the staff are always friendly. The hot tub is a massive bonus - we made the most of that after a couple of 'hard' days exploring Banff.... More

We now come here to Irwins as much as we can afford. Its simple great and ever so relaxing. Buy yourself a one year Parks card and then coming here will feel cheaper the more you come. All the rooms that we have stayed in have all been super. We like to go out walking with our dog and everywhere... More

Irwins is a very basic hotel. Totally acceptable if your goal is very basic lodging. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The inn was also surprisingly quiet. The inn does appear 'tired', definitely showing its age. However,it is fine for a few nights and if you only want a clean place to stay.

We stayed here for 3 weeks. All the staff were so friendly. Matthew was so helpful and couldn't do enough to help us. The house staff clean the rooms to a very high standard. TOO many recommendations to list. Close to town. Facilities in room are great. Wi Fi great. We Will be back. Recommended highly. Kevin and Dee.

I stayed 1 night in this hotel with my family(my wife and 2 chilren). Although Banff is not big to talk about the hotel's location, the hotel is located the start of the city. So, there is not traffic in the area. There are 2 main problems with the hotel. First, the face washer was in the room not in... More

I made my reservation last minute, right in the front desk and was extremely well greeted. The facility is extremely clean, some of the rooms have a beautiful mountain view, there is an elevator and there are people to help out with luggage. I had to switch rooms, and the hotel transferred all my belongings to the other room, extremely... More

Short distance to downtown and grocery store, comfortable beds, clean rooms, friendly staff and good rates. I enjoyed my time there. I was thrilled that there are kettles available upon request so you can make a proper cup of tea instead of using the coffee maker.
