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 originally were planning to say for only 3 nights but then there was large amounts of snow at Sunshine Village and Lake Louise, so the day before we were due to check out I went and spoke to the front desk and was able to extend our stay, receiving the same great price and we were able to stay...

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The hotel itsself is very outdated.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 Rooms quiet big but slightly outdated and in need of a little soundproofing, could hear way too much which made sleeping uncomfortable !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....

The room was clean and it had a fridge and coffee maker. Beds were clean and comfortable. It's a quaint motel, but outdated. The staff is SO friendly and made us feel at home. I stayed with my 2 young children. We took advantage of the pool across the street at the Banff Park Lodge. The pool was great!! We... More

this is an old motel style place with three floors. Basic room, nothing fancy. The room had a fridge and portable fan. Dirty windows overlooking the street. We stayed on the second floor. FYI- no elevators. We can easily hear the load, noisy people coming in before midnight walking/running around in the room on the upper squeaky floors and on... More

We enjoyed our stay in Banff very much! Just wanted to say thank you to Faye as she was really friendly and helpful. The use of the pool across the street was nice too. Our family all slept really comfortably and it was just a really nice weekend overall!

We were told the hotel is closing down shortly and will be renovated to become part of the much more upmarket place across the road. Renovation is certainly well overdue as it feels like a dated country town motel, is fairly noisy and not at all luxurious. Having said that, it is really not that bad as a place to... More
