As returning customers to the Homestead Inn all I can say is EXCELLENT service again!!! Paddy and her team are always on hand to deal with any questions and offer advice on the best places to walk our dogs, and even which to avoid with the cougar sightings (thank you). The rooms are incredibly comfortable, and we always feel relaxed... More

So when you book in Banff on a weekend in peak skiing season and you pay less than $100/night.... I actually paid $72/night all in. Don't expect much. The beds are comfortable the room was clean. Can it use a reno absolutely. Do I think they are going to do updating selling rooms for 70-100/night? No.... It was warm. Everything... More

No value Banff hotel waiting demolition N51°10.654' W115°34.400' this older sister of opposite Banff Park Lodge on 222 Lynx street is waiting demolition. Years ago, the owners stopped refurbishment and only very necessary cleaning and maintenance was done. The carpets were full of stains. In the meantime, the owners cranked up the prices of this rundown hotel without lift during... More

Good value for your money. Book the third floor. Amazing location for the ski trip. The ski resort shuttles stop is right infront of the hotel. You will be the last to pickup and the first to exit the bus. LCBO and Grocery Stores is less that 500 m away.

Our room looked exactly like the pictures. It was big and comfortable. It's right in town and you can use the hot tub next door. The reception girls are all super nice, friendly and helpful. Free parking! Only the cleaning service wasn't as great. I had a feeling they only made the bed and emptied the bin. They didn't vacuum... More

We picked this hotel because of the price. Check in process was seamless, although I would've liked the GSA to be more enthusiastic. The room was okay, and we had free parking at the back of the building. Would stay again.

I can't say enough good things about the Homestead Inn. Patty at the front desk went above and beyond to accommodate us. I greatly appreciate her willingness to give us an early check-in after having to move reservations around so we could stay with our pets. She even brought them treats! Located right downtown. It is a perfect place to... More

We were here just for a night in this hotel as this was an additional night to our stay in other hotel in Banff. This is just a basic hotel I can say but ideally located. Restaurant, superstore, Tim Hortons, gas station, river, shopping and everything can just be reached on foot. Exclusive hotel parking is good enough to accommodate... More

We were at the different places far than this Inn and tried to cancel it just 2 days before but they took money away because I missed to cancel in 72 hours.
