I arrived in Banff at around 3 am after a long flight. I assumed that there would be a sign for the hotel somewhere on the road it is located. I was wrong. I drove up and down the road several times looking for it. I finally stopped at the Ptarmigan Inn by chance to ask for directions only to be informed that is where I was to check in for the Driftwood Inn. One would think that if they can't bother to put up a sign, the confirmation e-mail for the reservation could at least indicate what to do! Since checking out of there I have noticed it is hard to see even when it is daylight and you know where it is!
The rooms are dated and not so great, but the hotel is at least in a good location close to downtown.
