We had to stayed in this hotel as that specifically weekend the hotels in Banff were full. We paid a premium price for the room that we have to stayed. It was very noisy as we can hear everything from the next room. It was just useful to pass the night and next day go to explore another areas. There... More

The hotel met all our expectations. I would advise potential guests that there is no restaurant on site and getting in somewhere to eat was impossible. The Petro Can across the street does have enough snacks to make a meal.

The hotel for the most part was comfortable could do with a few updates. Kind of a flash from the past with the decor but would recommend it and we would stay again. For the price you would expect a much better breakfast. We stayed at smaller much less expensive hotels on our trip and a full hot breakfast was... More

From the reception welcome to the quietness of this location, our stopover was three days of comfort and enjoyable surrounds. The beds and linens were first class and sleep was very easy on the great mattresses.

Good location. Large room. Room furnishings dated. Bathroom outdated, with tiny stall shower. Big breakfast, but my family is gluten-free and there wasn't much we could eat there. Overpriced. Heard train nearby.

This place was dated, but clean, spacious and there were refrigerators in the rooms. They provided a breakfast and it was in a good location to many trails etc. Most of the year you will probably not need it, but there is no air conditioning.

The breakfast is average however it was the best manned bar I have attended - 3 people. I paid $200 rate at a discounted AAA rate and it was worth about $80. No phone, super slow internet, an old 100 lb. TV, no outlets in bathroom and few in the room, thin walls and you hear all the flushes. It... More

WAY over priced for quality of room. Old bathroom, old tv, old furniture, only thing that was newer is the comforter. $270 per night with tax for a motel with a new comforter. Didn't even have AC or a Phone in the room
