Accommodation is hard to come by in Banff and this hotel can't be faulted for location. In ten seconds you are out on lively Bear Street and near to all of the bars, cafes, shops and restaurants. The rooms are a really good size and the bed extremely comfortable. Hard to fault for the price, just a simple no frills... More

My travel with 2 dogs narrowed my choice to few hotels and I was certainly glad I timed my visit to the availability of the rooms here. The room may be slightly dated though very clean, but hey this was a good price for a room during the peak season. The location of the hotel within the town certainly makes... More

We stayed here only for two nights, but the room was very clean, the swimming pool and hot tubes were nice. Bed were really comfy as well..Decent place to stay if you're on the budget. 5 min walk to Banff City centre.

My Mom and I stayed here while visiting Banff. It offered good value compared to other hotels in the area. The rooms were clean and quiet and the area was good. We used the adjoining facilities of the hotel next to here. The staff were nice enough and the location is fantastic! For 100 bucks it is definitely worth it.... More

We reserved a room at the Homestead on a very busy Valentine's Day weekend. Upon our arrival, the Manager informed us that there had been a glitch with the reservation and that she booked us into an upgrade at one of their other properties. A nice room and free cocktail vouchers.

The hotel itsself is very outdated. Could seriously use a makeover. The walls remind me of an old hospital. But it was nice and cheap, allowed us access to the pool and javuzzi at the Banff park lodge, the staff was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and really went the extra mile for the customers. The BEST service I have come across... More

We were arranged in Banff due to the awful awful customer service from the Greyhound bus company. Checked into this hotel last min, was $60 for two people - can't go wrong! Rooms quiet big but slightly outdated and in need of a little soundproofing, could hear way too much which made sleeping uncomfortable ! But not the hotels fault... More

We had a terrible sleep every night due to the noise of footsteps on the stairs since there are no elevators in this hotel. We could hear every truck that drove by, the train that honked its horn twenty times a night, the snow removal trucks at 3am and people yelling from the street which seemed to happen every night....
