The hotel is set at the end of the town. Nice surroundings and less busy, but a long walk to the town center. Rooms are spacious and quiet, but all rooms face the center patio, instead of the surrounding forests. The beds are good. All second floor rooms have a semi-private balcony and first floor rooms have walk out patio... More

When you need cheap, you end up compromising. Sometimes, it’s loud air conditioning, sometimes it’s a CRT television instead of a flat screen. Other times, it’s simple inconvenience. Bumper’s Inn is the latter. Banff is small, so even though Bumper’s is nearly on the edge of it, it’s still only minutes to downtown. That’s not really the issue. No, the... More

Quiet, clean, comfy beds. Check in is across Banff Ave, which isn't convenient at all. On the outskirts. Take the free bus into town. Had to ask for an extra towel for our daughter, even though the booking was for 3.

Have stayed here several times and I've loved it every time. Its a quiet clean out of the way little place. Very relaxing. Nothing fancy but does cover all your needs. Will stay here again.

The last two reviewers were quite polite and discreet, I chose otherwise. This is an older motel, cheaply built with few improvements. Firstly, when observing the pile of 6 white towels, one can clearly see that one is discoloroured. Upon opening it a stain is visible. I left it on top of the chipped toilet tank cover hoping the cleaning... More

Thank you for your honest feedback. Bumpers Inn is indeed one of the older motel type properties in town located in a quiet and secluded part of town. This means the location in general is far quieter than some other downtown locations. Parking is complimentary and very convenient; in most cases directly outside your guest room door. We do also...

Bumpers is at the end of the motel strip. It hides behind a large, empty parking lot and non-functioning restaurant, surrounded by pine trees. Probably among the least fancy motels, it is none the less functional and (relatvely) inexpensive and quiet. The rooms are basically painted concrete block and sheetrock. The water is hot, the bathroom is clean and the... More

I stayed here one night and it was worth it. the place was clean, and I enjoyed the door out to the courtyard. the location is reasonably central, and while there is no pool, I got free access to the pool across the street. for what I paid, the fridge more than made up for a lack of continental breakfast....

The staff is friendly, rooms and toilets are clean room spacious and cozy, there is a garden where most of the rooms point to so it's very quiet. I didn't like the fact there is no breakfast but there are many other hotels around that offer this option for you. For the price it's a good deal.

This motel was very reasonably priced and is now a subsidiary of the Inns of Banff group. We came for a quiet retreat and found exactly what we needed! Our main door looked out into a forest and the other door/window led to a very pleasant treed, benched, central court! It was a quiet place, except for a few trains,... More
