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

3 storeys and no elevator so don't pack heavy if you get a third floor room. Great location, has just your very basic amenities but is a sister to the Banff park lodge across the street where you can use their pool, laundry etc. Room was fine for what we needed but would probably look at other options if I'm...

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.
