Extremely scruffy hotel including rooms and stairwell with stains all over the carpets and grubby tiles in the bathroom. Really needs a complete refurbishment. We booked a tour of the Rockies with Brewster travel and selected superior hotels, we can't imagine what the standard hotels are like!? Also room was not made up even though we were out all day.

The rooms are clean but we were unable to control the temperature so had the window cracked which then made us understand the free earplugs on the nightstand. Parking was an issue with not being signposted properly, the comments from one particular employee suggesting that we are unable to read, even though when he walked to where he was suggesting...

The room was quite comfortable. It had the usual mod-cons but it was obvious that this was a budget hotel. For example there were only 2 Coat-hangers in the room, no electric socket in the bathroom, no bar fridge, no Hotel Folder/Directory for info, only 2 paper cups and no pen or note pad for leaving/taking notes. BUT the staff... More

This place was the cheapest place on the strip by a country mile so I didn't expect a lot. It was really nice inside and the rooms are really good for the money. There really wasn't anything you could complain about and it's right in the city centre. The staff are good all round, and the bar and other facilities... More

This hotel is historic as it is one of the oldest in the town and the location is second to none. It has character and yes parts may be dated but this is what give the hotel the charm.

Our room was well appointed. Awesome bed. Very Clean. Mountain view. Granted it is an older hotel with interesting heating and cooling yet they have done very well with updates. We paid very little money for a great location. We were steps away from everything on Banff Avenue. Tony Romas is on the off the lobby and the food and... More

This is definitely not a star in the Brewster empire. We were upgraded and got a room with two queen beds facing the main street. The carpets were so soiled, I did not take my shoes off. The bathroom had such a weird design that a large person or a pregnant woman would have a hard time using the toilet.... More

I wasn't expecting a lot when I showed up considering what price I got the place for (3-night deal) but pleasantly surprised. Great customer service, clean room and very, very quiet. Stellar location!
