Good: Good Location in town. Free parking! Staff was friendly, Room was clean. Quirks: Older property with winding hallways. Difficult to find room. Were told to park downstairs though surface parking was open, and easier to manage with luggage. King Room layout was odd and space was tight. Large armoire took up most space. No stand or counter to open... More

Spent a couple of nights here recently.The location was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I really appreciated having a fridge in the room. The room was clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable.....BUT the air conditioning was broken so had to sleep with the windows open, which would be great except my room was facing... More

Parking is very challenging to say the least. Lots of visitors have a passenger get out and direct the driver... We had booked a triple room but there were only 2 beds... we didn't bother to even argue it; the place was booked solid. No breakfast offered, just a little coffee. Beds and linens are great. It's walking distance to... More

We spent a night here and our room was great. Very spacious for all our luggage and the beds were comfortable. Room was clean and hotel staff uber friendly. Would def go back again in Banff! Also used trip advisor to book! It was right on the main drag of Banff Avenue with awesome shopping just steps away.

Short walk to shops and restaurants. Nice room, newly refurbished bathroom, clean and tidy. Laundry facilities available at the hotel next door. Underground parking available on site, no extra charge. Our room was a bit too hot, there was some sort of wall heater which we weren't able to turn off. In-room safe available however the safe in our room... More

Hair on the towels, TV didn't work, parking is a challenge. The bathroom was updated, but I wish I had spent the extra money to go to a little nicer hotel. The room was on the smaller side and the mattress had some age to it, you could feel the wire edge around the edges when seated on the bed.

Room was clean and has been updated. Bed was a bit worn in but not a biggie. Very poor TV channels but not much time was spent watching it anyway no golf channel! One of the more affordable hotels in Banff and only a couple blocks away from the restaurants and shops.

On two previous trips we stayed at Irwin's Mountain Inn, right next door, and owned by the same people. Unable to get a room there on our dates this year, we thought we'd give Red Carpet Inn a shot. Prices are very reasonable in comparison to other hotels in Banff. Check in was swift, and the gentleman on reception was... More

Expected a 3 star experience as we have stayed there before but the place is aging and not maintained. I had to replace the screen on the balcony door (balcony door does not lock), towel rack fell off when I used a towel, light bulbs burnt out.

Helpful & Friendly Staff! Great Location. Walk to Shops. Reasonable Price. This Motel Is Just That - A Motel. It Is Tidy & Priced Accordingly. It Is Far From Fancy But For Us It Served The Purpose As We Weren't In Banff To Be In Our Rooms For Any Length of Time. Loved That It Was Pet Friendly! Staff Were... More
