Location is the only reason why I am rating it as average. The location is central and it is a short walking distance to restaurants and shops. The hotel itself is old and in any other city aside from banff, the price would have been considered outrageous. The room was hot with no air conditioning. We were lucky that the... More

Black in toilet under the rim. Gross ! 😝 We were tired and stayed one night . Told the girl at the front desk how... More

Very basic room. Absoloutley no luxuries. Staff pleasant and helpful and great central location. Not good value for money but a lot cheaper than most Banff hotels. Much more like a motel than a hotel. Sister hotel across the road gave more luxury. Free car parking was handy.

Went to check-in at about 6:30 and front desk was vacant. Waited 10 minutes and staff member came back with her meal to sit down and eat. Motel style room that encourages you not to stay in it. Carpet stained and dirty, marks on walls, in need of full refurbishment. Old TV, uncomfortable double, could not get out of their... More

250 dollars a night. It is filthy. A 1/2 inch of grime on the window sills. Carpet is disgusting. When someone near you showers or flushes a toilet it sounds like someone is attacking you. Excruciatingly hot even tho the thermostat is turned down. In the middle of checking us in, the receptionist decided to do a job interview! Absolutely... More

We enjoyed very much our stay at he Homestead Inn. Very central and quite comfortable. It also gave us access to an upper quality hotel for the spa, which we envoyed a lot. The employees are very helpful.

We stayed here recently and although the location is super convenient (very short walk to downtown), the rooms are quite outdated. They are spacious and clean though! Breakfast in their other hotel across the street is excellent and one can use the pool and gym over there. Reception staff is very friendly.

This is a property that is scheduled to be torn down next year, as far as I learned from the front front desk personnel. Thus, everything in it is left as is - you will not find luxurious fixtures, furniture, etc. The windows and tiles would have specks of dirt or calcium, respectively. There are discoloration spots on the carpet.... More

I needed a place to stay for a couple of days before starting a bike ride on the Tour Divide Route. the Homestead Inn was centrally located. The room was in very good shape and clean. Couldn't ask for much more.

We booked through bookings.com for 3 nights as the location was good. When we arrived at 9 pm at night, pouring rain and following a 10 hour bus ride, we were told that our booking had been cancelled as the credit card number supplied by Bookings.com had a wrong expiry. I explained that I had contacted the hotel a week... More
