We stayed at the Red Carpet over the Family Day weekend; great value and location with very helpful and friendly staff! It is a short walk from plenty of great restaurants. We will definitely stay again.

The price for this location and amount of comfort was excellent. Nice giant bed and soft pillows, access to Banff downtown within 5 min walking distance, hot tub. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Banff :)

I don't usually write a review on a hotel but this needs to be said. It's a very run down hotel. My room had wall paper peeling off the wall , the ceiling had a huge patch like something leaked from above. It just looked liked everything was patched. My toilet also needed a plunge due to toilet paper not flushing , also passed another lady in the lobby who had a plunger. Bathroom had no hot water one morning. Called front desk and he came down and said just wait a bit maybe we will have some soon. Very inconvenient when you have to be somewhere. The hot tub didn't work and as far as continental breakfast that was a joke. No fruit, no yogurt , no oatmeal at the least. I atleast expected some kind of rebate on my room or a voucher for something. The red carpet inn does not care about their guests and I may take this to head office. Like I said I've never wrote a review before and I travel a lot for hockey tournaments so I hope this was helpful when choosing where you stay.

Great location to all facilities in Banff. Rooms are clean, warm with plenty of room. The staff are extremely helpful. The continental breakfast is a bonus. I will recommend The Red Carpet Inn to everyone and will always stay there.

We had a rough stay at the Red Carpet Inn. It started off with a very pleasant check in with a female Australian desk agent. She was very welcoming and informative about the festivities going on in Banff that weekend.
HOWEVER...the male agent working at night was absolutely atrocious. After exploring around the town of Banff we returned to our room to find that our bathroom had a maxi pad on the back of the toilette that did not belong to us. Instead of dealing with this immediately, the agent told us that he was in the middle of dinner... The experience with him did not improve after we waited for him. Sorry to inconvenience your staff Red Carpet Inn.
Needless to say, we won't be returning.

Fairly cheap accomodation in Banff! Very fast walk to the town! Room was clean and I found the in-room sink very handy as the sink in the bathroom was very small! I didn't like the first room they put us in as it was near the stairs (yay, foot traffic) but the staff was accommodating and put us in a better room! Breakfast was great - I don't eat breakfast food normally so it was good enough for us. The breakfast may be considered basic to others, but at least it's free. Would we stay here again? Yes. It was very affordable for a three night stay!

Room Tip: Don't choose room 120 - was very dingy looking.

We didn't sleep in the hotel because of an error with our booking with expedia. Even if they didn't have a room available, they accomodated us anyway by sending us to another hotel. Then went beyond what they had to do. Thanks!
