“good stay!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

It's a little bit of a stroll into town but doable.

Nice but no frills. Quiet and clean and place to stay like any decent motel. Would easily choose Bumpers again if we travelled to Banff again.

Couple in late 20s approves!

If you are in Banff and want a friendly, super clean, quiet place to stay make sure to choose Bumpers. It is on the edge of town but only a 10 minutes walk to the main area. The rooms are super clean, wonderful beds (the best I have had in a motel). The TV, in our room, was super large and there was a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The rooms open to an inner courtyard and I noticed many rooms have a balcony (ours did not).

The price was wonderful and the manager is so so friendly.

Very comfortable bed, big counter in the bathroom so no balancing act on the edge of the sink, hot shower, fluffy new towels, coffee maker, microwave and fridge, free wifi. Perfect. If you want the big lobby with the automatic doors opening and the pool and spa...this is not for you. Yes, it is a ten minute stroll along Banff Ave to the town centre, but 2 or 3 minutes will get you to a liquor outlet and a couple of restaurants. We are all too quick to drive everywhere...the walk will do you good. Yesterday, walking along Banff Ave heading out of town from Bumpers, there was a huge herd of elk...maybe 60....in a field with Cascade mountain as a background!
We stay here about ten times a year and have never experienced a wild party disturbing us.

Room Tip: We like the upper floor rooms as they have vaulted ceilings with clear cedar on them.

It wasn't fancy, was out dated, but it was clean, quiet, and out in the less busier part of town. Although, Saturday night got a little noisy with rowdies staying in the hotel, up till 3am. We stayed Sunday night, and it was so quiet and peaceful. Staff was very friendly. Room had all that was required, coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, blow dryer. It was cozy and warm.

Stayed at Bumpers for 2 nights, an affordable place to stay, seemed clean enough but didn't have that "warm fuzzy feeling", very basic but can't complain for 70$ per night. A bit of a walk from the night life/boutique, about 10-15min.

The place is a bit off downtown, but if u want to keep on a reasonable budget, this is a fantastic place to stay. Rooms are clean, a bit warmer than expected (I went in June, but during winter who would ever complain!), quiet, comfy beds, decor is sober and you can even spot squirrels right outside your window! I would recommend this place to anybody visiting Banff.

Banff is not a cheap destination, but the Bumpers Inn is affordable and pleasant enough. Desk clerk was helpful, we arrived after 9pm. The steakhouse next door is good but the rest of Banff is almost too far to walk - so only stay here if you have a car.
