Just back from spending the night in Banff at the Red Carpet Inn. Initially when looking for places to stay I overlooked the hotel because of the 2 star rating. Time was running out for me to book and hotels were booking up fast for the weekend so I read the reviews on The Red Carpet and figured I'd just go ahead and book it.
The purpose of my stay was a girl's getaway with my 10 year old niece. The hotel was easy to find and check in was a breeze. The room was a decent size, as mentioned slightly outdated but that's fine - it was extremely clean and as mentioned in previous reviews the bed was SO comfortable. I haven't had a good night's sleep like that in a very long time!
We stayed on the second floor and could hear people walking around in the room above us but it definitely didn't keep us awake.
We had a room with one king size bed and a balcony which faced the parking lot. Regardless, you're surrounded by mountains so the view was still nice.
The only "odd" thing about the room was the vanity sink being outside of the bathroom but the bathroom in our room also had a pedastol sink. The vanity did have ample counter space for toiletries.
Overall, if you're traveling on a budget I highly recommend this hotel. It's a very good value for your money and just a few blocks away from downtown Banff. I would defintely stay here again.
