10 minute walk to town and in a calmer area. The twin queen 'condo' had microwave, fridge and coffee maker. This was adjacent to the sitting area with pull out couch/dining table for 4.

It’s Banff, so as expected, nothing is cheap! The hotel was great for travelling with a dog. The rooms were big and clean and it was nice to have a separate sitting area and kitchenette as we were staying 3 nights.

It’s Banff, so as expected, nothing is cheap! The hotel was great for travelling with a dog. The rooms were big and clean and it was nice to have a separate sitting area and kitchenette as we were staying 3 nights. In this time of Covid and most motels shutting down their breakfast buffets, it was nice to have options for a hot sandwich or continental breakfast offered every morning. The hotel was about a 10 minute walk into town and lots of nice areas surrounded it for walking the dog. The on-site Chili’s was also dog friendly, so you can sit out on the patio and enjoy a meal with your dog present. The highlight of our stay was watching the deer eating the flowers right outside the hotel’s front doors one morning. Read less

Yes, the beds are small in the double room. . . and hot during the summer. I ask for an upgrade and they were so accommodating to do an upgrade. Close to downtown, friendly and love the free breakfast!

Oh, where do I start with this review? Firstly there's not much parking for the hotel. The customer service is not tbe best. I understand Banff is an in demand destination so most hotels can get away with some things as people need a place to stay. Cleanliness, especially during Covid is abysmal.

Oh, where do I start with this review? Firstly there's not much parking for the hotel. The customer service is not tbe best. I understand Banff is an in demand destination so most hotels can get away with some things as people need a place to stay. Cleanliness, especially during Covid is abysmal. The cost and the stars of this hotel need to be cohesive as they are charging for 5 star service whilst providing 1 star. The rooms are small and the beds are tiny. There is no extra bedding available for the family suites. Read less
