This place is clean and cozy, simply awesome! Located right in the centre of Banff, we get to walk to all the restaurants nearby. The room was very clean and the staff were friendly. Only thing we had to pay for wi-fi, but still well worth the money considering the low room price. The place is pet friendly but you... More

We have booked for a month and a half - we are still at the homestead in until January 4th. We just couldn't wait to let fellow trip advisors know about how awesome this place is! The homestead inn is absolutely fantastic value! Everyone who works here is brilliant and has great customer service. Sam in particular from the front... More

This was my second time staying at the Homestead Inn, and I still think it's just lovely. We were on the third floor, so we had to carry our luggage up the stairs but it was not a big thing for us -- but may be if you require accessibility! The rooms are clean, but old. I enjoy the heritage... More

Stayed there as we had a dog with us and they are Pet Friendly. 3 floors, motel in the center of Banff. Great location one block from the main street. Walk to shopping & dining. Bow river one block away with well maintaned, paved trail along the river. Perfect for dog walks. Room was basic, carpet does need replacing but... More

Being a couple blocks from Banff Ave and Wolf Street was great and it was a quiet night. But the place is quite rundown. It was clean and everything in our room did work though. The rate was $102 for a Saturday night and is only that much due to the close but quiet location. I would not pay more... More

Although the Inn has seen better days and the carpet and stairways are worn and tired, the rooms are very spacious, clean and light with windows that open. Bathroom facilities were very clean. The staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was efficient. We were offered a 2 for 1 breakfast deal at the big... More

We stayed four nights at the end of August 2013. Our total cost after the room charge plus the tourism levy, tourism improvement fee, gst, was 662 CAD. The check in was fine, the staff on the desk always pleasant and helpful. Going up the stairs was a bit shabby. Our room was upstairs, and was clean, spacious and quiet.... More

We managed to book into this hotel at very short notice. The room was quite comfortable although a bit dated. It was very clean. Plenty of hot water. Staff at reception were extremely helpful. We had breakfast at the sister hotel across the road. We were given vouchers for buy one breakfast and get two. Breakfast was very good. Very... More

Centrally located but still quiet, spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Perfect buffet in the joined hotel. Very polite and helping reception. A receptionist named Samantha was exceedingly helpful with a lot of patience, useful information and smiles.

Good location & very handy for a stroll into the lovely town of Banff. The room was spacious & clean. The door opened onto a back yard where cooking smells were very strong. We were on the ground floor & there was a lot of noise from the upper rooms, but otherwise the location was quiet. There were restaurant &... More
