I am surprised more reviews did not comment on the poor beds. It is one of the more important if not the main factor in a good stay. You can easily here noise from the other room. More so than from a typical hotel. Location is good. Parking is right in front. The rooms were clean.

My husband and I had the loveliest of stay at The Poplar Inn with Susan the owner. We first saw this Inn 2 years ago whilst taking a stroll around Banff on our first holiday to the Rockies and we thought then what a pretty Victorian house. Since then we promised ourselves to stay there on our next trip to Banff! And we were not disappointed! We stayed in the Larch Room. The accommodation is fantastic - a super king bed; which was soo comfy, super soft flannel sheets to keep extra cosy with the wintery weather outside, lots of space to unpack and storage for clothes. A great bathroom with great shower (and shampoo etc included). A separate entrance for guests and use of a communal area with table and chairs, sofa, tea/coffee etc. The breakfasts were incredible too! On the first morning we had an egg on an English muffin with avocado, salsa and bacon. Sooo delicious! The second morning we had amazing homemade blueberry pancakes with syrup. Plenty of coffee provided and delicious juice. Susan was a lovely host, really friendly and it was really nice that she joined us during breakfast to get to know us. We honestly had such a great stay at The Poplar Inn. It's in a great location in town too - just a few blocks walk to the main street for all the shopping. Occasionally you can hear the honk of a CPR train in the distance as it passes through Banff station and that just adds to the experience - such a wonderful Canadian sound!! Free parking outside the house too. We loved the whole experience! We will definitely be back!! Cannot recommend it highly enough.

We stayed here for two nights and found it really convenient and comfortable. It is a short walk into town and the restaurants. It would benefit from a toaster in order to prepare breakfast as our accomodation was a two bed self catering apartment. Otherwise it was excellent. The trains are quite loud when they pass through as they sound the horns each time.
