The rooms were a little small and dated. The hallways didn't feel that clean. The lobby was ok, and location was fantastic. Parking gets full in the evenings, so if you get in late you may be parked in the driving lanes. Wi-fi was spotty, but worked better during the day. You can plug in on the lobby floor. Didn't...

We have just stayed at the hotel for the past two weeks, we are a family of 6 adults in three rooms, the rooms are large and clean but a little dated, but they did inform us that they are having a refurb this year.

This place is on Banff avenue and hence the location is really good. The souvenir shops, restaurants, convenience store, gas station and other shopping stores are at walking distance. The hotel rooms inside are clean but seriously outdated. We were given a tube TV for the bedroom which is what my first TV ever looked like (in 1992). The rooms... More

Stayed here the weekend before Christmas with my in laws who were over from the UK and we were all pretty impressed when we pulled up outside and even with the foyer, then we went to our rooms; Yes they were clean (hence the 3 stars) but the place is so outdated, it would be hilarious if my in laws...

When my wife told me she'd booked this hotel on the main drag in Banff, I was dreading it would be like our last stay on Banff Avenue(see my sleep-deprived review "Bring Your Own Mattress") where because of the prime location, they don't have to care about incidental things such as guests' sleep. But the Banff International Hotel was different... More

I selected the Banff International for three nights in mid December on the basis of price (cheap) and location (close to downtown, next door to a ski shuttle stop). All I can say is that I was impressed - the quality of the hotel more than exceeded my expectations, and the staff were friendly in the few interactions that I... More

The hotel is clean and the loft rooms are very roomy. The front desk staff were very nice. The hotel is located in a great place. It is right near downtown.

A solid 2.5. If a Hampton Inn in the US is a 2.5 then this may be a little less. Very comfotable. Good for groups. Harsh lighting and very very spotty internet. I finally found a fairly good location right next to the front desk. Banff is great. Beautiful setting.
