We stayed here for our annual trip to Banff for the Santa Claus parade. The room was very average, and in need of updates. No fridge, microwave, tube TV, no fan in the bathroom and the softest beds ever. There is no pool on site, so we walked to the neighboring property to use their pool at the Voyager Inn.... More

We stayed in a "superior" double queen suite. It was clean and spacious. It was also quite outdated, and sparsely furnished. The TV was a tube tv. Bed was fine, and the room had a patio. Continental breakfast was provided, and was totally decent. We got the room on a group buying site and it was very worth while.

Dirty room. Filthy coffee pot, couldn't even have coffee. Ice bucket filthy. Beds were old and so uncomfortable! Brutal! No fridge. Barely any heat. Continental breakfast was ok. We bought this in Groupon, no wonder it was cheap. The pics however, deceiving. Save yourself the disappointment.

This hotel is disgusting. I moved the bed to plug in my phone and the filth under it was unbelievable! I guess the vacuums don't reach or maybe the staff is too weak to move the bed to clean under it. There was mysterious liquid on the bathroom wall(possibly blood), and blood on one of the pillows!! The beds were... More

This weekend past was my first time staying at the Spruce Grove Inn located in Banff. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. For the price we paid it was well worth it. The hotel is dated, located at the far end of Banff Avenue, however only a short taxi ride away and you're right in the middle... More

We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable and handy for amenities. We collected a hire car and were able to park outside to load which was convenient. The breakfast was good and included in the price.

I'm quite sure why all of the negative reviews. It isn't a fancy hotel and it could use some upgrading, but overall, it was clean and comfortable. The location is good, the views are excellent, the rooms are dated, but comfortable and clean. The service was very welcoming and the parking was good as well. It's not the fanciest, or... More

We arrived at the Spruce just in time? There was only one person on at the front desk when we arrived around 6:00pm, standing in line with 2 families in front of us. They argued about not having the correct amount of rooms reserved while we waited for about 30 minutes, a bus load of tourists filed behind us. The... More

This place has the WORSE service I have ever experience! The hotel is owned by the same husband and wife who also own the Voyager's Inn next door, and their attitude toward customers are ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. They didn't have enough towels in the room so we called the front desk to ask for more, but they kept giving us excuses... More

I booked this room for one night with little notice . There was not much available in Banff that day and I was not sure what to expect. I was pleased with the location and having underground parking was really nice. The staff were polite and I had no complaints.
