Inns of Banff is located at the quiet end of Banff avenue so it's about 20 minutes walk to the downtown area. However there are good restaurants just a few minutes away plus you get FREE bus tickets that let you use the Roam bus service that takes you right up to the Sulphur Mountain gondola and hot springs. You also get free parking, free wifi and a voucher book for discounts from many outlets in the town. IOB is probably also the least expensive hotel in Banff and it has it's own bar, restaurant, indoor pool and outdoor hot tub so overall it's great value for money.
For this price you have to accept that the rooms are TravelLodge quality, but they are clean and comfy, many have a fridge, some even have a microwave. Larger rooms have several bedrooms which is great for families. The ski bus and public bus stops outside and there is a liquor store right over the road too!!
The Swiss Village rooms are also part of IOB although just separated from the main building and are the cheapest option. These rooms are a little smaller than the IOB rooms but still OK.
As it is at the cheaper end of things then it does attract a younger element but the hotel has an 11pm to 8am quiet time policy that I found was respected.
I've stayed at IOB a few times and would happily stay there again.
