We have visited Banff a few times. Usually we only stay one night, so we don;t look for anything extravagant. We usually stay at Irwin's Mountain Inn due to thier price and location. This time though we were pleasantly surprised, as the hotel looked completely different. We didn't even know they had completely renovated the place. We really liked the... More

We were trying to find permanent residence in Banff and stayed at Irwins for over 2 weeks while searching. The staff were very helpful and gave us some good deals when we extended our stay. There was renovations occurring on the floor above us which was rather noisy in the morning and also the Samesun Hostel was right next door... More

A large room with breakfast bar and two comfortable beds greeted us after a long day of sightseeing. We overlooked the car park, our friends overlooked Banff Avenue. Temperature in room suited us but our friends could not cool down their room even with windows open. Car parking is rather tight for large vehicles but with care and help from... More

Great location only 2(long) blocks from town center. Took about 5 minutes to stroll there. No continental breakfast but a great restaurant on site with very reasonable prices(about $20 CAD for 2 for breakfast w/o beverages). No room service tho. Mini fridge in the room was also helpful. Friendly helpful staff. Ensured our room would be ready early when they... More

4 nights stay and had a wonderful time. The room and staff were excellent. If you are traveling with a dog we would recommend this hotel as our Jackie was treated very well. This hotel is four paws up!!!.

Had four nights here. Easy to find on main road into Banff - and a short walk to the centre. Comfortable and roomy, but a little dated. We were unfortunately overlooking the bar next door from our room, which was a bit noisy into the night. Attached restaurant, El Toro, does a very nice breakfast - plenty of choice, well... More

We spent five nights here in August, walked in off the street and offered a very good rate so we upgraded. Service was excellent, staff very helpful and friendly. Our room was large, clean and quiet and the beds super comfy. Hot tub appreciated after a long day of hiking. Would definitely stay here again. Excellent value for money.

We stayed at Irwin’s Mountain Inn: a good bargain in this sky-rocket price city. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable; there is a guest laundry (you need coins) and a lot of other common services. It’s located in downtown Banff close to shops and museum. We booked the 2 bedroom suite to allow my daughter (20) her own space. There... More

We chose this hotel based off reviews in TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. We needed a pet-friendly hotel and Irwin’s fit the bill nicely. The room was in the back of the hotel and though quarters were a bit tight, the room was clean and nicely appointed. It even had a shared patio area that was surrounded by a short... More
