Hotel was recommended by my uncle who had stayed here to ski. We stayed there in August to go walking etc. It is the best value hotel we could find in Banff in August about half the price of other hotels. Great location about 3 blocks up from the main part of Banff Ave. Free parking which is great for... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced place to sleep. We didn't need a place to spend a lot of time at or sit in the room during the day. Irwin's fit the bill perfectly. The Good: -Great location close enough to town to walk to the main drag, but still quiet around the immediate area. -Great prices, compared to... More

We always stay here when we go to Banff. We love the jacuzzi room and it's so cheap for Banff! Has great service and a few blocks walk to main area of Banff Ave. The jacuzzi room is great!

Stayed for 9 nights in this hotel. The staff was always very friendly and accommodating. The hot tub was just what we needed after a hard day's hiking. Breakfast at the on-site restaurant was hearty and delicious. A great place to stay for the price.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had booked a room which had two large double beds (which would be ideal for a family), small breakfast bar area, kitchenette and balcony with a lovely view to the rear over small mountains. There is free parking to the rear and an underground garage with a lift that leads into the lodge... More

The rooms were well priced and clean with outstanding facilities. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful with great information available on what to do and where to go in Banff and surrounding areas. Could not have asked for a better place to stay and the restaurant there is brilliant - i am still having dreams about the crepes!!... More

I have just returned from a weekend in Banff. Had a positive experience staying at Irwin's Mountain Inn. The hotel is in a great location on Banff Avenue. We had arrived before check in time, but the receptionist allowed us to park in their underground parking area. This meant we could walk into Banff & not have to worry about... More

Stayed in this hotel/inn for our family trip in Banff. It was within walking distance to Banff Town Centre and because our room has fridge, we were able to avoid eating out all the time (saved us some money), and just managed to buy some food in a nearby Safeway Store. The room we were in had a good view... More

The hotel has a very nice hot tub. There is also a sauna and exercise area. I never used the exercise equipment, and although there wasn't a lot of equipment, what was there all looked like it was in good shape. When the hotel is full, it can be difficult to find a parking spot. One has to be careful... More
