Pros- Great price, great location, great free breakfast, safe and clean, free underground parking.
Cons- The rooms are very small.
The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything.
It seemed to be more of a party hotel for groups of people - which is a pro if that's your thing.
The bathroom is tiny. Sink is outside the bathroom with almost no counterspace and no counter space in the bathroom. We had old towels piled up next to the toilet.
The place is a bit of a maze once you are inside.
The hot tub area leave a lot to be desired. Nothing overly great, but they do the job.
Neutral - They didn't clean our room when we were gone for the day. It wasn't a big deal and they knocked 10% off the price without issue. This was very appreciated.
Overall, given cons above, I would otherwise never stay here again, or recommend i.... But.... the free full breakfast is great. Bacon, eggs, toast, sausage, an omlette station, and free OJ. This is huge value and make this place a place I would recommend and return to. There is huge value in this breakfast. Especially with food prices in Banff. The breakfast really saves this place and I suspect the owners know the downfalls of the hotel, and this is how they make up for it.
