“Very clean, cozy and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights during the peak of the ski season. I thought everything was fantastic. Spacious room -- regular double-occupancy room with 2 queen beds. Clean bathroom and linens. The on-site restaurant is small, so we went elsewhere for dinner but the breakfast was great in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

I selected the Banff Inn because it was an easy option for the conference I am at. What a mistake.

They told me breakfast would be included throughout my stay but failed to mention that certain days weren't included.

We were placed right beside the main entrance and because the walls are so thin that all you can hear and people talking, walking, doors closing ALL night.

Would definitely recommend not staying at this hotel.

This hotel is well located within the downtown area of Banff. We stayed 1 night in a loft since we were a group of 5 adults. It was ok for the night. There was only 1 bathroom for a loft with 3 queen beds. The reception was friendly. We also used the free underground parking , which is very useful. The breakfast, which was included, was scheduled for 7:30am after 2 tour groups had been served. Then , we showed up @ 7:45am and there was no food left. We could only have coffee and we were told that the delivery had not been done in the morning. After inquiring at the reception, we were then told that they were going to the grocery store to get more food. This was very inconvenient since we had to leave early for our scheduled activities.

This hotel is a short walk from the town. Big spacious rooms and a nice bathroom. House keeping leaves a lot to be desired making up the bed and leaving new towels only, they don't even take the old towels! The breakfast is good, cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, yogurt, juice, tea and coffee. The bar is nice at night with great specials every night! I would definitely recommend this hotel

The Banff Inn was a nice stay while we were in Banff. Free wifi, located about a 5 minute walk to a lovely restaurant and across the street from Chili's.

The room was larger than I expected given the area and the bed was nice. The bathroom could use a bit of updating but was functional for what we needed.

The spa area was great. Both a steam room and a sauna with a large hot tub in front of both. I can see this being a necessity for people who have been hiking all day.

Underground parking was nice but Banff isn't a car-friendly town so if you're going downtown, just take the back roads to the free parking lots.

If you're a foodie, Banff has a lot to choose. Very nice place to visit.

We had the loft room and stayed there three nights. A very nice and spacious room, although it got quite warm in the loft itself, where the beds were. The interior of this room was certainly up to date.

We had two nights at the Banff Inn. The room was really nice, very spacious and with windows on two sides, one looking on to Banff Avenue. Everything was clean and fresh. Two things let it down though - the breakfast was so basic, it would have been better not to bother, and the shower was awful, just too old. If they could put these little things right, they'd have a really nice hotel.
