Rooms are a little dated, however this is a good place to stay at a decent rate. Reasonable walk to the heart of Banff shops/restaurants, or free bus service with your room key. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly.

We stayed there for 5 nights during Ontario spring break. The hotel is very affordable with free shuttles to ski hills and other places (roam service). We took free shuttles to ski hills but didn't try ROAM. Parking is covered and can be very close to your room. This is a big plus in winter for skiers. Room is huge with a balcony, clean too.… Read more

Really enjoyed staying at the inns of Banff, the views are amazing and with a 10-15min walk away from town. Conviently has a free bus that takes you into town right across the road. As well as a free shuttle to all the nearby ski resorts. The only bad thing I could say was that the hot water ran out reasonably fast, but we could of just be… Read more

I booked a superior room with partial view-2 queen beds The room was clean and quite big. The bathroom do need some update/maintenance, but still clean. There is nice large private balcony for each room, which could be convenient in a warmer season. Located on the outskirt of Banff, about 15 min to the downtown core, or free access to the city bus… Read more
I booked a superior room with partial view-2 queen beds The room was clean and quite big. The bathroom do need some update/maintenance, but still clean. There is nice large private balcony for each room, which could be convenient in a warmer season. Located on the outskirt of Banff, about 15 min to the downtown core, or free access to the city bus with hotel card. For the price paid, I was not expecting any better or worst. It’s a good value for the money paid - especially comparing to the cost of most of the hotel/inns in Banff. I would return there in a futur trip. Read less
