We spent two nights here for the Banff Gran Fondo. The location of the hotel is amazing and there is quite a bit of free parking. The girl at the front desk was very helpful and informative. The room was just OK and was looking a little tired. We also noticed that there is a development permit at the hotel... More

This place has issues with cleanliness. The carpets were filthy, bathroom was outdated and the kettle was extremely dirty. It may be affordable in comparison to other places in town but by no standards it is worth the price. I have stayed in motels which could be called 5 star in comparison to this place. The only reason why I... More

One of the more affordable places to stay; however, room needs upgrades. Carpets are stained throughout and need to be replaced. Bathroom floor tile has no grout and counter top has broken sections and loose on the wall. Bedding was clean, new beds required. Internet WiFi did not work. No A/C.

We had just done the Burgess Shale Walk so arrived very very tired. There was a mix up with the booking for the customer in front of us, so took 30 mins to get our tired bones into the room. The young girl on the reception did her best but on her own. Not sure why hotels in this price... More

Stayed in Banff for eight days at the height of the holiday season and the Homestead Inn was reasonably priced compared to local bed and Breakfasts and lots less than the main hotels. Large room with two double beds, tv, coffee maker, en suite, fridge etc. There are no additional facilities and no breakfast room etc but the facilities of... More

Stayed in Banff for a conference and was unable to book at the hotel where the conference was being held (Banff Park Lodge), so they recommended their sister property the Homestead Inn across the street. Initially was given a room on the main floor which upon entering was disgusting. Stains on the carpet, in bath tub and the mattresses looked... More

Lodge manager sounded really rude as she was calling us regarding my card that was not updated. We had a long trip and was already in banff giving an ultimatum that if we don't make it by 4 our reservation will be cancelled. My husband did not like the place so we cancelled and ended going back home the same... More

Given how pricey and challenging to find a room in Banff especially during summer peak season, I ended up booking a room here - we had a ground room with easy parking access in the back alley - made unloading luggage a breeze with the room just a few feet away from the car. No free wi-fi. You can use... More

Location, location, location. Near the main shopping/ restaurant district in Banff. Friendly staff, average rooms that need updating. Appeared clean with daily cleaning service. Great cafe connected to inn for breakfast, lunch and even lobster for dinner. Guests allowed to use pool at sister property across the street. Off street parking a plus.

When I arrived I just got from Calgary airport so I was pretty jetlagged. They booked me a room on the 3rd floor but since there were no elevators, the girl at the front desk offered to help me get my luggage upstairs which I thought was very kind of her. The room I had was very spacious and in... More
