“Great condo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

I shared a condo with 4 people, but a total of 8 people were using it for eating and relaxing.
Kitchen very well equipped, except that there were nonstick pans and only metal utensils -> The pans were destroyed when we arrived! We asked, and we got new ones.
The whole condo was clean, rooms, dining room and living room were very comfy, and the terrace had a great view on the surrounding mountains (and a clean BBQ)!
Only thing, the train is very loud were coming through town! But that's not the inn's fault!

It is really hot in Banff and there is no AC! One little fan! Oh my goodness! If you are a big horn, it is easy to climb to the room! If not, you are in trouble! This was last minute since there was NOTHING else! Book months ahead! This is also the last hotel on the strip!
I have yet to experience the pool or hot tub!

Room Tip: If you can, and it is in your budget, book somewhere else!

The guy at reception was immediately helpful and very friendly. We were issued complimentary bus passes which made travelling around Banff a lot easier, especially as parking is tight. We stayed in a condo, which did not look like much from the outside, or when you first opened the door. But when we got into the condo it was perfect for us. There was 7 of us and there was plenty of room and it was well equipped. The only downside was that there was a bit of a steep hill to the condos. We ate in the restaurant one night. The food was good, and the guy that served us was great too. Overall we were pleased with our stay.

You know you're going to get a good room when the first thing the desk clerk asks you when you arrive is if you want to upgrade.
Since we were just passing through and only staying the night we stuck with our original room in the additional building.
The building looks like it's falling apart- old carpets, cracked walls, outdated furnishings. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everyone in the surrounding rooms.
There was no air conditioning so we were boiling all night. Our solution was to open the patio door to let some cool air in. This seemed like a good idea until 4:30 when a delivery truck showed up right outside our window and proceeded to use their air brakes and bang around for 20 minutes. Another delivery truck arrived shortly after that.
Deliveries are important. Deliveries at 4:30 in the morning outside your sleeping guests' rooms- not so great.
Overall we were not impressed. There are a lot better places to stay in Banff.

Stayed at the Inns of Banff during the August 5th weekend. The room was clean, but unprepared we booked for 4 people paid the extra fee and the room was set up just for 2. Small inconvenience, but at Banff prices surely better was deserved. The facilities are adequate if not needing a bit of TLC in upkeep but all in all we enjoyed our stay.

My wife booked this hotel through expedia. We had stayed here 6 years ago but in building B with a view of banff ave and an UNOBSTRUCTED view of the mountains. During her booking she paid extra to get an unobstructed mountain view because the initial room description said partial mountain view. Her hope was to get the same view we had on our previous visit. What we got is a room in building C with a great view of the balconies and suites of building B and a decent view of the mountain tops. We had a not bad view of a mountain if we went out on our deteriorated concrete balcony and looked way off to the right. The balcony was crumbling concrete, badly chipped painted wood railings and two dirty plastic lawn chains. The room itself smelled musty and the shower curtain was horrible smelling. After making a trip around to see if there were any other hotels with vacancies, knowing full well we were going to lose the 530.00 CAD we had paid for the 2 nights booked at the Inns of Banff, we ended up buying febreze and cleaners in an attempt to clean the room.
The room deadbolt would not close, there was a huge patch on the roof where there was obvious water damage, no air conditioning just a poor table fan, no lock on the entrace door to the building but a nicely placed bungie cord to hold the door open, and a host of other small things which combine to equal a very poor hotel.
The booking was for a superior mountain view room, at 250 per night there is nothing superior about the room to warrant 250.00 per night as there are several hotels in Banff at a lower rate which are much more inviting to stay in.
Will we come back to the Inns at Banff - No. Would we recommend any one stay at the Inns of Banff - No. For the money there is many better options in Banff.

We stayed here for 2 nights and i had seen some poor reviews online so i was expecting the worst. I was pleasantly suprised that we had a warm and friendly welcome,our room was clean,the 2 pool areas were clean as well. Comfortable beds,great sushi place on site,and quiet at night. For a family of 5 we opted for a cot instead of a larger suite and i thought that the price we paid was fair. It was not spectacular but by no means does it deserve a 1-2 star rating. Thank you for a very pleasant stay!
