“Great place, close to town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

We always stay here when we go to Banff. We love the jacuzzi room and it's so cheap for Banff! Has great service and a few blocks walk to main area of Banff Ave. The jacuzzi room is great!

Stayed for 9 nights in this hotel. The staff was always very friendly and accommodating. The hot tub was just what we needed after a hard day's hiking. Breakfast at the on-site restaurant was hearty and delicious. A great place to stay for the price.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had booked a room which had two large double beds (which would be ideal for a family), small breakfast bar area, kitchenette and balcony with a lovely view to the rear over small mountains. There is free parking to the rear and an underground garage with a lift that leads into the lodge and ski storage if required.
The staff were majority helpful and assisted us with any directions and recommendations.
There is a fridge in the room, which was ideal for us as we bought some breakfast supplies and had these each morning before we ventured out.
It takes 10 minutes max to walk into the lovely Banff town centre with it's vast selection of restaurants, bars and shopping facilities.
Overall we were very pleased with the choice that we made to stay at the Irwin Mountain Inn, considering that there is such a selection of accommodation in and around Banff.
If we returned, we would stay here again.

The rooms were well priced and clean with outstanding facilities. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful with great information available on what to do and where to go in Banff and surrounding areas. Could not have asked for a better place to stay and the restaurant there is brilliant - i am still having dreams about the crepes!! I would recommend this hotel for a night or a week in summer or winter.

I have just returned from a weekend in Banff. Had a positive experience staying at Irwin's Mountain Inn.

The hotel is in a great location on Banff Avenue. We had arrived before check in time, but the receptionist allowed us to park in their underground parking area. This meant we could walk into Banff & not have to worry about parking downtown. It is only a short walk to the shopping area. The same thing applied after we checked out. The hotel allowed us to leave the vehicle in their parking lot until we were ready to go home later that afternoon.

The rooms are comfortable & clean. Our room had a coffee maker, fridge, microwave & kitchen sink. Tea kettles are available on request. There is a gym & hot tub.

The restaurant on site is excellent. We were impressed with the selection of vegetarian food available on the menu & the prices are very reasonable.

Staff were extremely pleasant & helpful, The hotel is pet friendly & although I wasn't travelling with my pets on this occasion, it is good to see a hotel with a pet friendly policy in place.

Overall, a good hotel at a fair price. I would book here again & would also recommend to friends & family.

Stayed in this hotel/inn for our family trip in Banff. It was within walking distance to Banff Town Centre and because our room has fridge, we were able to avoid eating out all the time (saved us some money), and just managed to buy some food in a nearby Safeway Store. The room we were in had a good view of the mountains, had the necessary facilities needed and was reasonably clean. The room could use some upgrade on its decoration and noise reduction too.
The receptionist during our visit didn't appear very jolly...she really needed to smile a bit.
For the price and for it's function, this hotel is reasonable and convenient indeed.
