We're not terribly picky with where we stay. I myself am a lover of motels. Bumpers Inn was perfect for our stay. Not very modern, but it's the cheapest motel in Banff next to the hostel. Clean enough and quiet. I liked the cute courtyard in the background. With Banff being more of a traveller's/backpacker's destination, Bumpers Inn is perfect.

Place hasn't been updated in about 20 years. The beds are horrible, room not cleaned, cold draft coming through doors, bathroom walls and ceiling in shower not wiped down, carpet old, not many electrical outlets. Your treated differently when staying, your treated like lower class. There pet friendly but dogs are not allowed on the beds. The hotel restaurant is...

The motel is located in the north of Banff town. The room is spacious & comfortable, room is clean, with king size beds, large size flat TV, coffee maker, etc. The reception is inside the Banff inns, which is opposite the road, so the first time guests may go to inn directly & found no reception there. The inn is...

The room is actually cozy, I definitely was expecting less for the great deal I got. I like the location as it's quiet but still you can walk everywhere or take the transit for free, since the inn provides you with a pass for it. The room has an odor, I'd say sweat? The carpet doesn't seem to be greatly...

The hotel is nice and has a cabin type feel. Everything was clean and in good condition. The main office was closed due to construction and it did give it a little eye sore. Management was temporarily done through the "Inn's of Banff" which is across the street. The parking lot was not serviced. Puddled water was turning into ice...

Off the beaten track at the north edge of town. It's quiet, not too expensive, comfortable, and there are lots of restaurants nearby. A great place for a ski weekend. It is a fair hike to get to the downtown area but I prefer to stay in the outlying areas.

It is across the road from the main hotel, so you have to check in at the Inns of Banff. The grounds are shabby, with a messy storage area, and garbage in the gully near the parking. The room itself was fine, quiet the night I stayed. Good TV and toiletries, and a comfortable bed. There were a few partiers...

We stayed here during thanksgiving weekend, and we could not have been happier. The room is very large and bright with the huge windows, and the bed was very comfortable. You could not hear anyone in the other rooms, since there are cement blocks walls, which is great. It was very nice that it was at the far end of...

While coming for a ski vacation to Banff, Bumpers Inn was the perfect place to stay! Out of all the hotels I have stayed in while travelling to Banff, Bumpers Inn provided us a romantic ski getway in their cozy quiet, clean, and quaint rooms. For the price it is a great bargain and a great place to stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bumpers in during the first part of a weeklong Canadian Rockies trip. The location was excellent! Right on Banff Ave, but not so close that you were in among all the noise and people. We had rented a car, but they do offer trips on the Banff shuttle to the locations you would...
