The Red Carpet is an OK motel about 5-10 minutes walk from the main shops and restaurants of Banff. There's free underground and outside parking and its easy to find being on the main approach into town.
The room was simple and functional if a little tired looking. We had a strange plastic shower bath all-in-one fitting which harked back to the 1970's but it worked fine. We were on the second floor overlooking the rear car park, but the views were spectacular of the surrounding mountains - but I guess this would be the same no matter where you stayed in Banff.
The breakfast was included, but this simply consisted of a small room were there was toast, cereals and muffins available, which you helped yourself to with plastic plates and cutlery.
It was quite expensive at the Red Carpet for what you got, but accomodation is limited in Banff and unless you stay in Canmore just outside the national park, then this is as good as it gets for the price.
