We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour through canada. Our room was large with two double beds. The bathroom was the usual with hairdryer and shampoo etc. We had breakfast on one of the mornings which was ok, the staff could not have been less interested in serving us so we helped ourselves, just had a continental! One word of warning the hotel is a good 20 minute walk into Banff!

The hotel does offer complimentary Roam bus passes for all guests. The bus stops directly across the street from the hotel as well as numerous locations throughout the town. Guests can avoid parking concerns and ride for free.

The location, price and roof top hot tub were good but we were quite disappointed the hotel is being let go. The ceiling and carpets were full of water stains and the bathroom is well overdue for a basic upgrade. The toilet was running all night and there is no AC so it was very stuffy and musty. Staff were friendly and despite the hotel showing it's wear the rooms still felt clean. The website images of rooms and indoor pool look much better than what we experienced.

We have completed the installation of brand new carpet in all of our hallways and have already upgraded the TVs to flat screens including 40 inch units in our Inns of Banff rooms. We are currently upgrading our hallway lighting. In early December we are replacing all of our mattresses and have additional upgrades scheduled for the spring of 2013.

i decided to book a hotel slightly out of town and chose inns of banff. having researched rooms we went for a superior room. The overall stay was excellent,staff were friendly and efficient(one exception wild fire restaurant,which will be dealt with in restaurant review).
the hotel looks dated but our room was very clean and afforded an excellent view of the mountains.
i do recommend any body who has mobility problems or not fit should ask to be housed in block A as there are 2 crosswalks with neither having a ramp with the added problem of 2 steps on either side. those with cars can drive and park under each block but if you choose to walk around yourself you will have to combat quite a sharp rise up to blocks B and C.
this hotel sports a great outdoor hotpool ,a sauna and indoor pool.

Room Tip: as above choose a superior room and try block A unless you have a car

We are pleased that you were able to enjoy the amazing views from our large outdoor hotpool. Although we are a short walk from the downtown core, our guests have complimentary access to the Roam Bus which stops right across the street from us.

I found this hotel to be a disappointment. The rooms were very run down and had water stains on the roof and wall. The rooms were hot and stuffy. For the price we had to pay it was not worth it. David tried to accomadate us to the best he could and appreciated the effort but staff at the front desk were also unfriendly. Would not recommend it.

We stayed here for one night just as part of a road travel, my dad forgot 2 things in his room the one unimportant thing we got back no problem but the shoes went missing, we called them within a day of leaving and nothing could be found!!! Then i called again to check again and they promise to call back but no phone call! Unreliable housekeeping to say the least!
The rooms was old and stuffy and if you open the sliding door the noise from the busses so severe! Dont stay here!!!

Were not given room in part of hotel had originally reserved. Front Desk clerks very nice and helpful. Rooms could use some updating, and hall ways even more updating. Would go elsewhere next time probably. Hall very noisy late at night for sleeping.
