Hotels in Banff are really expensive so it's good to have an affordable option. Bumpers is at the edge of town, with a good hike into town center. You do get a TV, microwave, fridge, hairdryer, coffeemaker and wi-fi (although a weak signal). There's no breakfast, but you'll find coffee in the lobby. We were there during an unusual hot... More

This is one of the worst places I have ever been to. The front counter staff was very unfriendly. When booking we were told the facility had air conditioning. No it doesn't. The room was very hot and uncomfortable. We were also told at booking that there was free wifi. Not apparently for us. We spoke to every other customer... More

The rooms are clean and well looked after but are a bit dated. As has been mentioned in other reviews there is no airconditioning it didn't worry me but it was a tad warm at night. The staff are nice and are willing to go the extra mile for guests

We stayed at Bumper's Inn upon our arrival to Banff. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet. The scent of pine wafted through the room from the surrounding pine forest. We felt the property met our needs and was very reasonably priced. Office staff are very friendly and helpful.

This was one of our poorest motel experiences ever. We arrived to stay on one of the hottest days of the year. We had had a very good day driving the Icefield parkway between Jasper and Banff and were ready for a bit of relaxation at our motel. That was not to be. We guessed we were in a bit... More

We lucked out! Had reservations at a B&B in Canmore but received a cancellation due to owner family crisis. Found Bumper Inn in Banff on TA. Canmore was frequently recommended on TA for it's slower pace. Glad we booked, as Bumper Inn turned out to be located just as you enter Banff from the highway. Not a Fairmont - but... More

Comfy bed, fridge, m/wave & coffee maker were appreciated. However, there were only two table lamps - no ceiling lights. You could only read in daylight if you sat at the window & not at all after dark. There was no A/C, temp of 36c -28c, only two small windows to open. We sweltered all night. The window looked out...

We loved Banff and Bumpers Inn was a convenient and cost effective base for us to explore. The bed was comfortable and the free wifi was fast. We didn't spend much time in the room but the location was quite convenient as we had a car to get around. The outside courtyard does seem to attract people in the evening... More

Located on the far edge of Banff, this quiet motel was perfect for our one night stopover on the way to BC. The room was clean and the beds comfortable for our family of 4. Lots of space in the room for stuff and recharging electronics. I liked how the room overlooked a beautiful courtyard and how there was a... More

Bumpers Inn is well located on the east end of town, about a block from the main drag, next to a pleasant grove of trees. If you feel like walking a mile or a bit more, you can explore the main street on foot. Our room on the second level was quiet and spacious, with a comfortable bed, and although... More
