Had no other choice and booked this hotel since the weekend of Jul 14th was booked solid every where else.
Check in: At the Banff Ptarmigan Hotel. It was easy and front desk was super friendly.
Room: Upon arrival of the building, you can see that it needs updating. It reminds me of an 80's motel off the side of the road. Entering the room, my first impression was "ok, again it's out of an 80's motel", but i'll give it a go. No choice anyway. 1 queen and 1 single. The sheets looked gross and the bed was uncomfortable, but again it's it's for 2 nights, I can deal. The carpet was filthy. We couldn't even walk barefeet on them. They were not cleaned at all. The bathroom was ok. The shower pressure was awesome though. We put the sign on the door wanting the room cleaned and it was not done our entire say. Though I do have to say that the staff is really friendly and polite when we did see them in the hallway.
Overall: I would not stay here again, even if there was nothing else available. They whole place needs major reno's and upgrades.
