“Bob Hambly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Very good, very clean staf friendly except for the elderly lady who refuses to smile under any circumstance. The decor is alittle dated but it is a nice place with ample parking. Tried to book for 2 nights but the website said that they were full. NOT TRUE! Ithappened to a group of Germnas who booked in before us.

Stayed August 2013

Firstly to clear up some other comments, we're staying at The Red Carpet at present and have found it very clean and comfortable which is the most important thing when on a trip. Yes, the decor needs updating and I'm a bit dissappointed that the jets on the hot tub are not working at present even thou you can still use the tub but overall the hotel is just fine for what we need. Breakfast is limited but very tasty none the less and no limit to how much you can have. The staff are excellent and very friendly and we've had no problem parking the car at the back or under the hotel. In conclusion I would be happy to reccomend this hotel to travellers who want clean and comfortable rooms at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Our room at the front of the hotel is quiet at night and has a balcony with lovely views. Easy acces...

Came to Canada with my family and stopped in Banff on the way to Panorama, this was a lovely little Inn, we were able to use the swimming pool in the Hotel next door, just a short walk from the main part and we saw a deer wandering down the street when we were having breakfast!!

You are just a few blocks away from the main street of the community. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and yes shop. The room was large with a balcony, fridge, safe, wi-fi and microwave. There is a nice hot tub on the 2nd floor. Service was average and the breakfast good for an early morning start. The beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Get there early to get a better parking spot.

This hotel is a little worn, but very comfortable. A/C is nice since most hotels in area dont have it and it was quite warm (for Banff). Bed was very good. Breakfast spartan, but adequate, and crowded if you walk in at 8AM. Parking a plus. Reception was very pleasant and helpful. Probably the best overall value in Banff.

We liked the location, cleanliness of the room and having stayed in multiple locations throughout Canada we were pleased with the comfort of the bed as it compared to other places we've stayed at. The only complaint is the free breakfast has very limited options but that's not too surprising since its free.

In banff for my brother's wedding and had to book with short notice and with a dog in toe. Reasonably priced for banff - so expensive! But it's banff. Clean room. No complaints. Dog was easily accommodated by staff. Breakfast was included - basic continental style but enough to get by.
