“Good price for Banff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were stucked in Banff on our way to Jasper due to the weather. We found a small room for $60 for 2 single beds. It would have been OK for one night other than the loud noise from other guests coming back at 3.00 am and this guy knocking at every door at 8.30 am as he couldn't remember which room his friend was in. The hotel location is right downtown.

King Edward hotel - the nicest thing that I love about this hotel is that it is situated right in the heart of downtown. I love the location becuase it iss right there next to really everything..the shopping, the dining and much more.

The rooms may not be as good as some of the other hotels in Banff but you do get a good value for the money you pay.

I try to stay there as much as i can, so I can enjoy my holidays away from home.

Room Tip: I always ask for the room facing the main street.

We stayed for three nights off season. The bed I was in was incredibly static - I had sparks coming off of me every time I moved in it (very unpleasant). The coffee cups supplied were styrofoam. Other than that, nothing really to complain about. Very good locations; however, the street outside can be very noisy, especially on a Saturday night.

We paid $70 for a small room overlooking main street. Small room but extremely comfortable. We were missing the remote for our TV and the staff went down the road to buy a new one compatible with the TV.

Very helpful! We will be back!

Room Tip: The rooms are very small with little windows but what view is available of the main road is very goo...

Good thing i checked out their 2 double beds. The beds are tiny and the room is small.
We went for the family room which was fair.
Good location and price was ok. Beds weren't that comfy. Rooms need renos.

We booked this hotel through an online provider. The rate was low considering it was Banff. Overall the experience was ok, but the rooms were small and very simple. It was obvious that there had been very little updating done in this hotel. Reminded me more of a rooming house, except you had your own washroom. We are not ones to pay big money to stay in posh accomodations seeing that we usually try and spoend as little time in the hotel as possible so we were OK with the rooms based on the rate.

Overall clean and friendly and right on the main street in banff so close to restaurants, coffee shops and shopping.

Bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: Not really a factor, but a room with a woindow to the main street would be nice if you want to spend...

Stayed at the King Edward to attend a business function in town. Was enticed by the central location & attractive rates, but the convenience & savings were not worth going through the hassle & angst of dealing with a bed-bug infestation.

To the credit of the staff/mangement, the cost of my entire 3-night stay was refunded but it sure didn't appear as though they were at all surprised by my news that my room had bed-bugs.

This place needs to be condemned!
