We had a reservation and checked in, entered the room and found that it was not air conditioned. It was a hot July day and very stuffy in the room. Upon checking with the desk we found that the rooms were not air conditioned (only the halls) the parking was horridly dangerous with 2 levels underground and ceiling to lower level looked like it was sinking. We also discovered at the desk there are very few motels in Banff that do have air conditioning. We declined to stay there as we had an 88 year old along. With no air the rooms were stuffy and smelly, small and not very clean. They were very caring and refunded our money, tried to find us a place to stay, and said that the motel wasn't for everyone and that they understood our reasoning. We then ventured down the road a bit to Canmore Holiday Inn which was exceptional, air conditioned, contained a restaurant and small bar and the mountain view was gorgeous there too!! P.S. Motel didn have heat!
