“Pretty Good”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed at the Banff Inn in the beginning weeks of September. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean for the most part. My towel did have hair in it but the towel itself wasn't dirty. The hotel had a good restaurant in it and was also very close to downtown Banff as well as awesome restaurants along the way. We would stay here again but look forward to experiencing some of the other hotels in Banff just for comparison.

Nice hotel, staff friendly. Room nice with attractive wooden flooring and windows with a great view of the scenery. Breakfast was just average. Was a good 15 minute walk into Downtown Banff which is a shame. Next time I would prefer to be more centrally based.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains

The room is large and service at the lobby is reasonable. The location is somewhat far away from the town center. The walk is about 25 mins, acceptable especially after dinner in town, good exercise. If you don't want to walk, Chilli is just next door. It has free wifi but you need to get a code for every single device. Overall, I am happy with the stay.

We stayed here for 1 night and found the room to be comfortable and the staff to be reasonably friendly. The location was good though not actually in town. The included breakfast was OK though the breakfast room was too small for the number of people. I would recommend this hotel to others.

We had a loft room for our family. The room was a bit small, but having three beds was great. The view was beautiful, and the people working the desk were very helpful. The hotel is a short walk into the main part of town. Breakfast was a bit scant (toast, muffins, bagels and cereal).

Stayed here in July 2013 in a Premium room with 2 queen beds (325). The room was very spacious and well appointed. Plenty of room for the three of us to spread out which was nice. Our bed was comfortable and supportive. Bedding was crisp and clean. The bathroom had a nice selection of toiletries and was a reasonable size but by no means large. Our view was only of neighbouring rooms but others in the hotel do have great views of surrounding mountains. Room does not have a fridge, however ice machines are available on the hotel floors so it's really not an issue. On checkin, we scored a bus load turning up at the same time. It was quite chaotic however the young woman behind the counter (apparently alone to deal with it all) was extremely helpful and efficient - a credit to her in the circumstances! Our stay included breakfast each morning - I'm not sure if every room gets it but our booking paperwork made no mention of it anywhere so it was a pleasant surprise. It is a continental affair with bagels, muffins, cereals, toast, fruit, coffee & tea. Certainly enough to set you up for the morning's adventures. I assume most get it because we were given vouchers for each morning that no one apparently wanted to see at any time.
If hanging around the "downtown" shopping central area of Banff is your thing, then this hotel is about a 750 metre (roughly half mile) walk from Elk St where it begins, however I noted a bus stop right outside the hotel (we didn't use it so can't comment on cost or schedule).
I was extremely happy with our 3 night stay at this hotel, I recommend it to you and would certainly stay again should I find myself back in Banff someday.

We stayed one night with our family of four and Mother. We booked the loft room and it was perfect for our needs. The inn was easy to find, close to downtown but not too close and the inside was quiet with the necessary amenities. The room was well stocked with toiletries and towels, which is often a rarity in most hotels. The restaurant was good and convenient after a long day of driving through the mountains. We did not use the hot tub or sauna facilities, but they looked really nice. The underground parking was convenient, but very tight spaces so if you drive a big vehicle, plan on parking elsewhere. We would stay again if we ever make it to the mountains again any time soon. It was a great value for the 5 of us
