Good location as could walk into Banff. Underground parking so very secure. Rooms were a little dark in decor for my taste but were comfortable and clean. Bathroom sink was not in the actual bathroom but in a vanity unit in the room which was a bit of a nuisance. Rooms on the back are quiet. Hotel has a nice... More

Drove through Banff looking for accommodation and settled on High Country Inn and so pleased we did. Rates were great, staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Great stopover in Banff. Would definitely stay here again.

Although the rooms appear a bit dated, the hotel itself was good and clean. Hotel was a 2-3 minute mall from the beginning of the strip, the free continental breakfast was simple, but was very filling. We went during the week, so there was nobody in the swimming pool so it was nice to have the entire area to ourselves.

We have stayed here in the past and it has some very good points but it also has some issues. The good news: great location, clean, very nice pool and hot tubs(two with different temps) overlooking Banff Ave., connected to Ticino restaurant(excellent food) and only a door down from El Toro restaurant(see review). pleasant staff, good price. Bad news: the... More

Spent 4 days here in October, good location just 2 blocks from the centre of the town and good size rooms. However, it appears to be run by a wide range of part time staff/students and nobody appears to be in charge. Breakfast nice but basic, cereal, bagels, cinnamon toast, fruit the biggest down side is the breakfast staff have... More

amazing service with the friendly staff from all around the world. Very clean. Hotel is loud the majority of the time as this hotel appears to cater to groups. Hallways harbour and bounce any conversations. Street rooms are loud from all the walkers at all hours of day and night (Banff has a lovely night life). We asked for a... More

We stayed for four nights. We were given a ground floor room 131 with two queen beds. This is a room with a parking lot view on the back of the inn. Room is big,however the bathroom is small and difficult to enter and exit. Another feature is encountering the wash basin as you enter the room. Better to avoid... More

Hi If your initial room assignment didn't meet expectations then please speak with our front desk staff allow them the opportunity to find a room more suitable to your needs. If rooming requests aren't indicated at the time of booking then it can be very difficult to meet everyone's requests when the hotel is at full occupancy More

Good location about a 6 min. walk to the Banff Visitor Center along. It's good to have a motel within walking distance of the eating establishment and visitor center as parking in that area is expensive. Price for the Inn was competitive with other motel's. All the places in Banff seem a bit high; however, it is a resort town.... More

I'm really glad to hear how much you enjoyed your vacation. We are glad to hear that the adjustments we have made during recent renovations to lighting in the rooms has met such acclaim. Your stay coincided with a rather freakish snow fall and underground parking can certainly be appreciated at such times. Hopefully you enjoyed that taste of winter... More
