“Looking forward to going back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The price was fabulous! That was a big factor in us picking this place. The room was spotless and the location was prime. We were in walking distance to everything which is important when travelling with two children. The pool across the street was beyond our expectation; very clean and modern. I thought walking across the street to go to the pool would be a nuissance especially in winter but it wasn't a problem at all. I would highly reccomend this place for familys travelling on a buget. Once again, price and location can't be beat!

I've stayed at the Homestead Inn a number of times while out snowboarding and enjoying activities the Rockies have to offer; the price and proximity to downtown can't be beat! The staff at the front desk are always so helpful and very knowledgeable in regards to what's going on in and around Banff during the day and at night. The Inn is within steps of some of Banff's best restaurants (such as the Bison) and a block away from Banff Ave (main street). Hotel guests also get access to the pool and hot tub at the hotel across the street. I give the Homestead Inn 10 tourists getting too close to wild animals out of 10.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with friends

Room was clean and tidy and well-put together. Location was awesome, downtown Banff. Weird that the pool was in the hotel across the street but it was big and beautiful even with a fireplace sitting area!

We had an appointment at the local hospital and the Homestead Inn's location was perfect. It is also close to downtown, restaurants, etc., so an excellent location. It is obviously an older hotel and could use some updates but in general was clean and the staff very helpful. We were also allowed to bring our pet which was wonderful.

Stayed for 3 nights on a ski vacation. Enjoyed using the steam room and hot tub in the sister property across the street. Breakfast was awesome. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful- offered good suggestions for dinner. Would definitely stay here again.

We needed somewhere cheap to stay on the way to Invermere and this fitted the bill perfectly . Friendly staff, comfortable clean room, really handy position to wander and find eating places - Melissa's was great for breakfast, good value for money. Had only passed though Banff before so enjoyed checking the place out. Didn't use the facilities over the road- Banff Hot Springs was too inviting, but nice to have the option.

Room Tip: Was handy having bottom floor near car park

great value for the money-the room was not fancy, however was very clean, and was larger than average. It was very quiet, so we slept well-the central location made it very convenient for shopping, or venturing out to the nearby pub for a drink....would stay here again
