We stayed for 3 nights and we were quite wary because of previous reviews which I hadn't really looked at until a few days before.
The place was fine - we are from Australia and it was pretty much exactly what you would expect of a 3 star place. It was clean (not spotless), spacious and close to everything. In our book that gets a thumbs up.
We ate breakfast elsewhere on the first day because we were a bit concerned about the reviews. The following day we decided to check out the free breakfast just to see and it was great. Again it was the sort of thing an Aussie would expect from a 3-4 star continental buffet (and no better than some 5 star places I've stayed). Several different juices, fresh fruit, yogurts, croissants and pastrys, several cereals, toast, coffee, various teas. Lets keep in mind this breakfast is FREE with the room so I'm a bit baffled as to what other reviewers were expecting. Even if you paid the $7 a head it was most definitely worth it.
Overall this place was value for money - if you're looking for a 5 star experience you're going to have to pay for it in Banff. We have stayed predominantly at B&Bs for the rest of our trip, which cost around the same per night ($110-130) but the standard was in a different league altogether - every place we have stayed so far has been top notch - a good option for those on a budget looking for something special.
