“Not value for money!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Room clean but public parts of hotel grubby. Airconditioning in the wall and very noisy. Much street noise also. Free parking and cold breakfast good, but took damage deposit! Returned at end of stay. Top price for so-so hotel. Yes it's Banff, but

This place was very interesting, a bit of a hodge podge, and clearly very popular with the tour groups. But it was clean, comfortable and the air conditioning worked. What more could you ask? Additionally the front desk staff was friendly and helpful, and right on with their restaurant recommendations. It was centrally located within easy walking distance to shopping too. We would definitely stay there again.

Banff is an expensive place to stay however this hotel was reasonably priced . The room was clean , fittings and fixtures look quite new. Beds very comfy.very central. Didn't make use of pool. Reception staff friendly. Breakfast came included and offered enough choice. Close to downtown. Would use it again

Clean, friendly, operable windows, balcanys and great location. It isn't exactly quiet but who expects quiet in a town that caters to people who love to play in the out of doors? Everything in Banff is expensive as is this hotel - but it is worth it.

Room Tip: More noisy on the street side.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We booked two nights in this hotel. The room was updated and clean. The only problem was the air conditioner. It was loud and dripped water and didn't cool. We called the desk and the man on duty agreed that it didn't work but could do nothing since the hotel was booked. He agreed to move us for the next night and gave us a 10% discount which didn't seem very fair considering sleep was difficult. Window units need to be checked and cleaned, especially when charging $200+/nite. Our second night was better in the room next door and the hotel moved all our luggage.

First off, if you want to stay in Banff, you're going to have to pay for it. I think a lot less people would be upset review-wise if they realized Banff is a spendy tourist locale. Anyways, the High Country Inn is an older but very well maintained Hotel. The rooms were modernized and nice, new air conditioner that we ran constantly, and a cute little balcony for people watching and late night drinks/morning coffee. The deluxe continental breakfast was very good- waffles, french toast, bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs and fruit--- and included. I love places with free breakfast. The location is right on Banff Ave... Banff's 'Strip' to downtown, everywhere is walkable, which is great, because driving (or parking, rather) in Banff is terrible.
Although we only stayed the one night, I would for sure give the High Country Inn another go. Great stay!

Although it is rather pricy, staff is helpfull, good continental breakfast included, location is an easy walk to downtown. Bed was comfortable, room was clean. Not much else you can ask for a hotel room in a resort town.
