A group of ladies and myself had a FANTASTIC time at this hotel in Banff. The very efficient, knowledgeable and courteous front desk staff set the standard. The room was very clean and modern with a coffee maker and a balcony with a gorgeous view of the mountains. The continental breakfast was exactly what we had hoped. We did not... More

Positives: clean rooms and comfortable beds. Room had a balcony. Negatives: outlets in the room worked poorly - plugs would just fall out of them. No outlet along the wall behind the bed which made the lamp and alarm clock quite useless. Balcony view was blocked by trees immediately beside the building and there was garbage on the balcony. Decent... More

I know hotels aren't cheap in Banff, especially in the summer, but this was a disappointment. It was clean enough but the lobby and rooms are run down. The shower drain was clogged and there was an old toothpaste cap stuck in our sink drain. Wallpaper was peeling. Next time I'll spend the extra money to stay somewhere nicer.

The room was ok, but nothing special. Older decor and carpet. Tiny bathroom and narrow hallways. A small balcony was a nice bonus, but the parking is under the hotel and no elevator from the parking area to the main floor of the hotel. Breakfast is adequate and the pool and hot tub that you get to use next door... More

We always stayed here Sunday/Mondays because those are the days we had off work. Hotel is always a fair price (for the days we stay) and rooms have always been clean and beds are comfy. Staff is always very friendly and remember our group. Good location!

The room we had a this hotel was very shabby and in need of refurbishing. We left the hotel each morning between 9 -9.30am returning at 4.30pm and on both days our room had not been serviced. The breakfast was basic, if you like eating out of polystyrene bowls, plates and cups and using plastic cutlery then you were alright.... More

We visited Banff in June and spent five nights at the Red Carpet Inn. We had a very spacious room. When we checked in we were told it was a "light" continental breakfast. So, we were expecting just bread and a toaster(yes, we have been places where this is the case)but they had cereal, breads, bagels, juices, coffee and tea.... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was within walking distance to downtown. The rooms were clean and big. Nice beds, comforter and pillows, and big TV. People and staff were very nice. They have a nice underground parking that is safe and secure and private. Breakfast was ok. It was continental.

My wife and I have been visitors to Banff in October annually since 1976, with the exception of the odd Fall trip to Mexico. Each and every year we have stayed at the Red Carpet Inn. We have seen it grow from a single floor atypical motel to the current three story welcoming establishment overseen by Mr. Irwin himself, who... More

We stayed for 4 nights after booking on line directly with the hotel. We also showed our CAA card for a further discount. The prices were very good and we were pleasantly surprised to have a small balcony with a street view. The service was excellent-very friendly and helpful. The location was terrific. We were visiting family and could walk... More
