Conveniently located just a little way out of the town centre of Banff but close enough to walk, so ideal location. The hotel could do with a lick of paint and some new carpets! Despite being cleaned daily the carpets were grubby and almost threadbare in places. Good value for money.

Hello John K. Thanks for your review. It is always a bit difficult to hear that our property "looks a little tired" when we have worked so hard to keep our property well kept and clean. I do not believe we have any "threadbare" carpet issues, as our housekeeping team work super hard to emulsify and clean our carpets on... More

Spent 1 night at Irwin's Mountain Inn and found this motel to be very good value for money paid. It's nothing fancy but the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable.

we loved the way that you could just ski in and ski out. there are no things to improve on. I loved the fact that everything was so close to everything else, the village was very cosy and looked like one of those villages from the cowboy movies.

Irwin's Mountain Inn is a older style centrally located hotel in the main Street of Banff, only a 5 - 10 min walk to shops, pubs cafe's restaurants and the Bow river and trail.

This property has a great location on main street within easy walking distance to down-town shops, restaurants and the Bow river trails. The rooms are a little dated but well maintained.

Was this place terrible? Not at all. The property has worked to do some updates, and the rooms are reasonably priced. We stayed in the suite for 6, and had a decent amount of space. There is however, only one bedroom. Good for sleeping in but not for hanging out in. There is no pool, just a hot tub, and... More

This is my second stay here, and I wasn't disappointed. The room rate was very reasonable (May 9,10), and the room #248 was VERY quiet. We loved the two-cup coffee maker and having a fridge in the room. Front staff were knowledgeable and courteous. The whole place was clean and fresh smelling. We also loved the restaurant, "El Toro" for... More
