“Worth the Budget Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Bumpers is on the edge of the main town area. I wouldn't say it is walkable to the city center. By that I mean you could walk it, but there really isn't much to see until you get close to the center of town. The rooms are, "roomy" and vaulted ceilings were in the 2nd floor room in which we stayed. The room was great. No A/C, you can open windows, but they look inward to the common courtyard, so the folks on the other side of the that court yard are also doing the same. It is located next to a wooded area and the hotel benefits from the shade and cooler breeze.
I would recommend this as a good budget stay with basic services fitted to the price.

We were looking for a not to pricey place for a ski weekend. Bumpers fit the bill. Price was at the $100.00 mark, which was well within our budget. Check in was easy and staff were helpful with any Banff questions. Rooms were a good size and clean. There was WIFI and parking by your door. For a simple motel I rate it as better than most.

We had a nice stay in Bumpers inn. The Inn is located not far from the town center; a short drive and easy parking at least in May (I can imagine in high season it would be very difficult); otherwise a 15 minute walk or the bus (which we did not use) which stops right outside.
Considering the inflated prices of the restaurants in town, the refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker were a blessing.
Every staff member I had contact with were excellent, very helpful and courteous and friendly.
The room was clean and the beds comfortable.
The only negative was the erratic wifi. If I could knock off a quarter of a "star" for that I would.

I had been to Banff for the first time and planned to stay at bumpers inn.. I was at first doubtful because I have never been here and the rating was OK. But I feel that this is a very good place to stay. It had all the required essentials that made the stay comfortable.

The staff were very friendly. They have cleaned the room very well.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone who would go to Banff and look for a low priced hotel...

Stayed here for 2 weeks while we looked for work and some more permanent accommodation and we couldn't have been happier. Quiet part of town but only a 10/15 minute walk to the centre, lovely room with a super comfortable bed, microwave, fridge and satellite tele. And this was the cheapest place to stay out of all the hotels. Staff couldn't be nicer and were so helpful. Would stay again and recommend to friends / family

Bumpers inn is a fantastic place to stay, the rooms were very clean and modern, there was plenty of space in the room. The staff were very friendly. The bus stops right outside which goes into the town centre regularly. There is high speed internet and you are within walking distance from some great restaurants. I can't fault this place and cannot wait to come back!

This motel has been updated since we stayed here 12 months ago so, although it looks rather dowdy from the outside, our room was modern and comfortable. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, with advice about places to visit. There’s no complimentary breakfast so, if you’re going to buy some food, do so on the previous day when you’re passing a supermarket. The motel is easy to find, just off the the highway and clearly signposted, but is in a really quiet location. An excellent place for a (relatively) cheap overnight stop.
