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 It's a quaint motel, but outdated.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

My wife and I (and our pooch) stayed here for one night on a bike trip through the mountains. There were lots of reasons to give a negative review....no a/c, dated decor, very noisy since we had to leave the windows open and a fan on to get any kind of air flow so we heard the tour buses arriving...

This little place is great to stay in during the winter, terrible in the summer. During the winter they let you bring the dogs, and you get to go across the street for the use of the pool and the steam room. It is good if you just plan on skiing and want to bring your dogs. We decided to... More

After camping for 6 days my wife and I were desperately looking for a comfortable bed to sleep in. Thinking Banff would be an expensive place to start we were very pleasantly surprised by the rates at the Homestead Inn. Yes its not the most modern looking place (there are plans to refurbish soon) but the rooms are large, the... More

Chose this hotel as it was less than 200 a night, and we were only staying one night. The hotel is shabby and gross, the bed was so hard that my back and hips were sore the next day and I woke up like 4 times drying the night. No air conditioner just a cheesy 80's fan. Filthy outdoor windows... More

I normally stay at the Banff Park Lodge (which I quite like) and is owned by the same people however my poor planning landed me here in the Homestead Inn. I really do not have much good to say about this place, I gave it an extra star because I did believe that the staff who was working there did... More
