A long weekend meant that half of Calgary seemed to be in Banff and I wasn't able to get a room anywhere except at the Voyager inn.
Upon check-in I was directed to the Spruce Grove Inn instead, apparently the Voyager and Spruce Grove are connected. This was probably just as well, because the Voyager main lobby did not inspire confidence in the quality of rooms. The Spruce Grove felt much improved over its sibling.
The room is surprisingly big, easily accommodating the 2 queen beds inside with plenty of extra space to spare, should work nicely for large families.
Do not expect any luxuries here, the bed and linens are basic motel fare, the washroom is clean, the carpeting passably so.
I was in Banff during its busiest time of the year, Alberta's family day long weekend. There is definitely noise in the hallways at night, but it didn't disturb my rest, your own milage may vary.
The hotel is located fairly far from the downtown core. It's walkable, but will probably take you 15 ish minutes each way.
One final note about the parking, there is not enough underground parking at this hotel to accomodate all guests and the parking spots are cramped. If you enter and find it full it's pretty annoying to back out of the place, especially with a large car. I recommend that you put your car in the underground parking early or to look for spaces to park in the nearby Voyager inn or on the street behind the hotel.
