Hi I stayed at this hotel in January 2013, the price was the cheapest in Banff but only slightly cheaper than other hotels I've stayed at in the town which are much better (go to Banff every year whilst visiting family in the area). So not sure I agree with good value for money hotel, by paying only slightly more you get a much better atmosphere and service only down the road.
We stayed in this hotel and whilst it has parking etc. the smell of cannabis was all over the hotel to the point we could not sleep without smelling it and had to close the toilet door. The hot tub worked and was ok. The feel of the hotel is old fashioned, carpets, doors, furniture have seen better days (it needs a face lift!). The breakfast is poor quality and very very basic.
The rooms were clean but tiny, the tvs were old-fashioned (as you might expect for the cost) and there was too much furniture crammed into a tiny space.
The staff were a mix, we encountered 2, one very nice lady at the reception desk who was horrified to hear of the cannabis (so I do hope this is not a regular occurrence) and another young guy who barely greeted us when we arrived.
I generally do not have super high standards however in this instance would say this hotel needs a makeover asap, and for the sake of $5-10-20 per night you could really be getting much more value.
