On our first day we were in room 228. There was an extra sink outside bathroom and a very deep tub- some people would have a very hard time stepping into that tub/shower. Queen bed, table, fridge, TV. Right outside our window was an exhaust fan that caused me duress; I hate humming motor sounds and the vibration and noise... More

We had a spacious room on the third floor in the back including a balcony. Had some trouble with TV and wifi initially. We called the front desk and someone came immediately and solved the problem. We enjoyed being close to lots of restaurants and shopping.

My husband and I spent a week in Banff at the Red Carpet Inn and were impressed by their friendly and accommodating staff. The motel itself is comfortable, not fancy, but has everything you need and the location is excellent. We made a few requests while we were there -- for a room upgrade, etc. and were able to get...

Stayed here on the way through town. Booked last minute. Got the last room with one King bed. Cost was reasonable considering Banff is costly. It was nice that we were offered underground parking. Hotel was walking distance to all the shopping. Had a great time. Room was clean. Noises were only heard from the hallway. We stayed down the... More

We couldn't believe the prices of hotel rooms in Banff for this time of year. Wow. We were so happy to find room in this hotel and at a decent price. The lobby is a little dated but the staff is super friendly. Our room had been recently renovated and was lovely, extremely clean and modern. The bed and linens... More

The room was dark - very poor lighting if you wanted to read. The carpet was not thoroughly vacuumed - visible dust between head of bed and wall. Patio door did not work very well -- you could get locked on the balcony if you closed the door while you were out there. Not worth over 220.00 per night to... More

Great stay in a beautiful town. Good value hotel in an excellent location. Staff were helpful and our room was spacious and clean. Parking was available on site and there was a good restaurant next door.

Stayed three nights in this hotel. The location was good, in walking distance of downtown. The room was OK, except it was hard to regulate the temperature. The bathroom was very good, seemed to be brand new. We did not like the mattress, way too soft for us.

Hotel rooms at Banff is generally expensive. We booked for July about a month ahead but already not a lot of places are available. I would consider Red Carpet Inn decent for value. It is walking distance to downtwon Banff. We parked underground during our stay for one night.

If you must stay in Banff, (and I would avoid this tourist trap if possible.) this hotel is OK. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the proximity to the town fine. Probably could get better B&B places with a bit of research. These hotels are geared up for the coach tours of the Rockies and are not good... More
