“Close to main street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

You are just a few blocks away from the main street of the community. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and yes shop. The room was large with a balcony, fridge, safe, wi-fi and microwave. There is a nice hot tub on the 2nd floor. Service was average and the breakfast good for an early morning start. The beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Get there early to get a better parking spot.

This hotel is a little worn, but very comfortable. A/C is nice since most hotels in area dont have it and it was quite warm (for Banff). Bed was very good. Breakfast spartan, but adequate, and crowded if you walk in at 8AM. Parking a plus. Reception was very pleasant and helpful. Probably the best overall value in Banff.

We liked the location, cleanliness of the room and having stayed in multiple locations throughout Canada we were pleased with the comfort of the bed as it compared to other places we've stayed at. The only complaint is the free breakfast has very limited options but that's not too surprising since its free.

In banff for my brother's wedding and had to book with short notice and with a dog in toe. Reasonably priced for banff - so expensive! But it's banff. Clean room. No complaints. Dog was easily accommodated by staff. Breakfast was included - basic continental style but enough to get by.

Stayed at Red Carpet Inn recently found it very comfortable , Yvonne on reception very good. Breakfast area a little crowded if everyone turns up otherwise a very pleasant stay. Room with a balcony were excellent , maybe rooms could have a microwave. Close to town , walking distance to restaurants and shops .

Room Tip: A room with a balcony was very good.

I booked a room at the Red Carpet in Banff for our 15 year anniversary. I told Yvonne (clerk) that we had a declawed cat we were bringing with us. I requested a balcony room overlooking Banff Avenue. She sent me a confirmation and the confirmation said nothing about the cat or the balcony. I phoned Yvonne back and reiterated we had a cat.... she said not to worry about it as she had put it in the computer. I also asked her again about the balcony as this too was not written on the confirmation. She said she cannot guarantee the balcony, but would recommend we arrive early and if a balcony is available... we would have it. We drove from Princeton to Banff and specifically left Princeton early with the hopes of arriving early in Banff to get a room with a balcony. Upon arrival, the General Manager looked in the computer and said that having a balcony room is not an option because we have a cat. The General Manager was not empathetic whatsoever to the fact that the Red Carpet was not standing behind what I had been told. Moral of the story... if you book a reservation and have a verbal or written confirmation, don't count on the Red Carpet honoring anything they tell you over the phone. You get what you get when you arrive. We paid full price for a main floor room with wallpaper peeling off the walls and a view of the parking lot. The General Manager could care less about our concerns. Yvonne was working the next morning and she was confrontational and unprofessional. We will never stay at the Red Carpet again and we are telling our friends and family of our unfortunate experience. On a happier note, other than the Red Carpet... we had a fabulous time in Banff celebrating our 15 year anniversary.

Staid here for one night. The rooms were nice, a little on the small side, clean and comfortable. Easy walking distance to downtown. The free breakfast was plentiful, though the eating area was not quite big enough to accommodate the qty of guests looking to eat. Staff were friendly, I would recommend to family and friends.
