Nobody is going to feel impressed as they pull up to this Ramada. It's a bit dark and dated. But the guy at the front desk was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and comfortable, the Brewster bus to Banff stops right outside, and they gave us free coffee and muffins for breakfast.

I found the room very cold & could not control the AC as it is not room controlled. The steps going into the pool seemed lose & do not go deep enough in the pool to get out, I had a real problem with that. Other than that the staff if helpful, the food was good, room cleaned.

The welfare of our guests is paramount and we are sorry you felt any degree of uncertainty using this otherwise highly enjoyable... More
