“comfortable,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Comfortable , large room, perfect shower, good bed.
Staff at the desk very friendly and helpful, after we mention that the cleaning lady forgot to close the door of our room, we got with no discussion a ticket for a free breakfast.in the hotel at the other side off the street.
Perfect place to stay.

The only negative is that the room doors are facing what I would call a dingy alley. That does not mean that you need to worry about crime in this small isolated town, on the contrary everyone is friendly. The way it is located allows the lower price. The young lady staffing the desk was a delight, in every way kind and helpful. I guess they are associated with a higher end hotel across the street from the back of the rooms where you can use their spa. We were also given 2 for 1 coupons for a buffet breakfast at that hotel. The quality and varieties of food available at that buffet were nothing short of excellent.

Cheap and basic, but that is all we needed. Recommend. Nice staff at the front desk and close to town.
Some complaints I see, but you get what you pay for. I would go back. Wish that the pool etc was in the same hotel though.

I spent four nights at the Homestead Inn and throughly enjoyed my stay.
The location is perfect for bars, restaurants and the various sights in and around Banff.
The room was clean and comfortable though if I had one criticism, and it's a minor one, it would be that the windows in the rooms could do with being upgraded for better sound insulation.
So clean, comfortable and good location but over and above these consideration the staff were excellent.
Friendly, helpful and very knowledgable, they helped me make the most of my visit by recommending various tours and places to eat.
Well done!

The Homestead Inn was in a great location - walking distance to so many shops and restaurants. The room was spacious but the double beds were tight. We enjoyed using the really nice pool and steam room across the street at the Banff Park Lodge. We were also given 1/2 price vouchers for the Banff Park Lodge breakfast buffet.
The Inn is located on one of the main streets in Banff. The biggest issue was the very loud traffic that drove by all night. We needed to have the windows open to get some cool air in the room but even with the windows closed the traffic noise would be a problem.

The room was ok and clean but when I waled around the room it did make a lot of noise because it was not made with solid cement. It was very noisy when someone walked in their room which I found it irritating. The staff were helpful. The location is good.

We stayed at the Homestead Inn at the beginning of July and couldn't have been happier with our stay and can't wait to go back. The price and location were so great and the room was very big and the beds so comfy! I would highly recommend it!
