From the moment we walked into this place- the Irwin Mountain Inn far outpaced any expectation we could ever have.
Easy to find, close to everything, and the place looks great from the street, but even greater as you walk in the front doors!
Staff were awesome, very helpful with any request, and treated us beyond expectations.
This place bills itself as "affordable & budget" but without asking you to give up comfort, convenience, and location- and this is the first time in a very long time that I can remember a place I've stayed actually pulling all that off... while being VERY affordable.
The lobby was bright, sunny, full of windows, great fireplace, and plenty of big comfy leather furniture. I've paid 2-3 times as much for a room in places where the lobby was non-descript and very dated. This was no "budget motel" lobby- instead it was very nice, and gave us GREAT first impressions.
We received a WARM reception from front desk, and although we were far too early for check in due to time zone changes etc., our room was available and so it was offered to us immediately!!!
Everything was super clean- which REALLY matters to us, and well maintained. The place must have recently been extensively renovated... and the view out our window was amazing. We certainly didn't check into this place to sit in our room and watch the scenery, but waking up and looking at the vast mountains was amazing!
We felt safe, clean, comfy, and had a GREAT family vacation! We got to spend our money on activities instead of a room, and didn't have to sacrifice a great room in the process!
Jetted tub in room, great hot-tub off of main lobby, and a good restaurant. Heat was fine, easily controlled in room, and they have A/C for warmer months. Very comfy bed, good tv, quiet at night, and yet the place seemed fairly busy. Great free parking, behind building or even underground!
Next time we're in Banff, I know where we're staying! This place was awesome, and look at my other reviews... we're not the easiest people in the world to please. Oh-and BANFF is a great place, beautiful, and with a great vibe!
The location is awesome, close to everything.
