We got a pass to use the pool at the Banff Park Lodge across the street. The room was clean and the staff were great. You get to park at the inn and everything in town is within walking distance.

We have stayed at the Homestead on a number of occasions but this March was the first time under the new management (Banff Park Lodge/Bow View Lodge stable). Relieved to say that the Homestead is still one of the best places to stay in Banff, no matter what season. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. All staff front of house and housekeeping are friendly and helpful. It is also so close to Melissa’s Restaurant for breakfast.......you just can't get better than that. The Homestead is good value accommodation and I recommend it, we'll be back....... again.
The front desk staff are awesome. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and you get to use the Banff Park Lodge facilities which is nice. The only downside is the roof/floor/walls are very thin and sometimes you might hear some noise at night. But for the price you can't beat it.
i would definately reccomend staying at the homestead inn, location is fantastic with mels being a favourite with there endless supply of popcorn. the staff where friendly and couldnt be more helpful with there suggestions of must see places and welcoming smiles even on the coldest of days. the rooms were very clean. cant wait to visit this winterwonderland again!!!
I would throughtly recommend them to any traveller. I stayed in one room with my husband & two children. Yes they are slightly dated but very clean indeed. We used the facilities of the sister hotel & found them to be excellent there was a warm pool & hot jacuzzi as well as free towels. Its central location was so handy,just next door was a resturant which opens at 7am serving breakfasts if needed but the excellent room facilities were all we needed,there is a good size fridge in the room aswell as tea/coffee facilities. I can't wait to back!!
first impressions where great, I love staying in small hotels so that you get to know the staff, and have them greet you daily. the lodge manager `Dee` was especially nice when recommending places for us to check out around town.
The homestead Inn is located very close to ice skating rentals, bars, museums, and a very nice coffee shop called `the wild flower`.
We had met a few other travelers in town that where staying in hotels further down the main street and stated that they had to walk about 15 mins to the bar we where at, this made us thankful of the downtown location in the very cold weather.
the rooms where clean and the housekeepers where nice.
overall loved it here.. would return in a heartbeat!
