“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Stayed here for 2 weeks while we looked for work and some more permanent accommodation and we couldn't have been happier. Quiet part of town but only a 10/15 minute walk to the centre, lovely room with a super comfortable bed, microwave, fridge and satellite tele. And this was the cheapest place to stay out of all the hotels. Staff couldn't be nicer and were so helpful. Would stay again and recommend to friends / family

Bumpers inn is a fantastic place to stay, the rooms were very clean and modern, there was plenty of space in the room. The staff were very friendly. The bus stops right outside which goes into the town centre regularly. There is high speed internet and you are within walking distance from some great restaurants. I can't fault this place and cannot wait to come back!

This motel has been updated since we stayed here 12 months ago so, although it looks rather dowdy from the outside, our room was modern and comfortable. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, with advice about places to visit. There’s no complimentary breakfast so, if you’re going to buy some food, do so on the previous day when you’re passing a supermarket. The motel is easy to find, just off the the highway and clearly signposted, but is in a really quiet location. An excellent place for a (relatively) cheap overnight stop.

I was pleasantly surprised by our room at Bumpers. If was of good size and nicely laid out with a slightly alpine decor. It was also tidy and clean. The room had a large flatscreen TV, shower over bath, microwave, refrigerator but no ironing board or iron. Our window looked out onto a garden courtyard but I noted it was possible to see into other units and vice versa. Some units had their own small deck. Service at the front desk was very good.

Room Tip: There is only one laundry in town based at 317 Banff Ave. It is only open from 9am-8pm. Also if you...

Bumpers is a basic looking motel situated off the "main drag" in Banff, but close enough to walk to it. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. Rooms come with WiFi, TVs, microwave and a mini fridge. Get an upstairs room if you can because they come with a balcony. The first floor rooms have more direct access to a large common inner courtyard. The staff are friendly.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have balcony.

Great rooms with small ref and microwave. Very comfortable. Although no AC. It was a problem and fans for the room supplied. Hotel staff very helpful and it was even more economical than the hostel. Although it is located on the far end of town there is a bus service across the street and easy driving into center of town especially if one takes the street that parallels Main Street. Very clean and comfortable.

This is a budget hotel on the edge of town. There is a pleasant court yard but beware of mosquitoes. The room was a good size with 2 double beds, a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker and flat screen TV. There is no AC. The beds were comfortable and we were not bothered by noise. We were in the front of the building and found the room stuffy even with the windows opened, no cross ventilation. Check in was efficient.
