        Excellent location in the centre of Banff. Clean and quiet. Offsite parking was cheap, secure and very close. Secure key only access elevator to rooms.

        Room was exactly as pictured, quite small, but what I expected from an older hotel.

        Friendly staff and an excellent location in the town of Banff, Alberta, Canada. Good value for money.

        cost and access to area was great!

      • Single
        9.6

        Very convenient location, great value for money, excellent hotel for a one-night stay in Banff. Free public parking 30 metres from the entrance to the hotel, free wi-fi and coffee machine in the room.

        More light in the room in the evening would be appreciated.

      • Couple
        6.2

        It was in downtown Banff, close to everything.

        A tad too expensive considering it's a budget accomodation.

        Still great! Best place to stay in Banff. Been a King Eddie fan for 25 years .

      • Couple
        6.2

        Perfect Location on the Shopping Street of Banff! Many attractions reachable by a walk!

        Air conditioner cannot Be adapted! Only One micro wave for all guests!

      • Older travelers
        3.8

        I liked the location and the fact that you are asking for feedback.

        1. The 1st room we got (306) was noisy, switched to another room (206) 2. The recetion lady has poor english although nice and try to help. 3. No elevator although the staff helped with the suit cases 4. the room is very small 5. The room is not really clean, stained carped, hair from previous guest on the pellow, hole in the blanket, demaged bed (like eaten by mouse)

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        the location was great for what we needed

        the bed was uncomforatable

      • Single
        8.8

        It was clean, comfortable. The price was very reasonable and the location was right in the centre of Banff.

      • Group of friends
        4.6

        It is in a good location. Closed to city center,restaurants and night lives

        Beds are very old and bed spreads are dirty. We stayed there for three nights and got bitten by bed bugs. We weren't able to sleep because of bed bugs. We won't stay there again.

      • Single
        7.8

        The very central location on the main street of Banff

        The awkward entrance and exit with luggage - to and from the parking garage.

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        Banff itself much nicer town than the guide books led us to believe, hotel situated right in the centre so easy access to restaurants, shops etc.

        no hairdryer! as usual in North Am erica no kettle

      • Older travelers
        5.0

        The location was good , apart from the noise from reverlers on Fri asd Sat nights as they were up till 2am each night going past our room and we were on the 3rd floor

        The room was quite drab and not realy clean, food bits were left on the edge (top) of the heater and paint is pealing from the bathroom

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Location location location. Great price, right downtown. Everything is easy walking distance.

        Location location location. Street noise from revellers until and when the bars close.
