    Location Friendly staff

    here is NO sound proofing. You can hear everything happening in this hotel. Terrible. Someone was walking above us on the third floor on super squeaky floor all the 3 nights we were there and it was super LOUD. In the morning cleaning lady starts vacuuming, you hear it as if she were doing it right next to you. People walking down the halls - you can hear everything they say in the middle of the night after hitting the bars. The mattress was really poor quality and uncomfortable. NO air conditioning. Even in May the room got really hot. Opening windows in the middle of Banff is not an option with all the people who party through the night. Parking is extra. No breakfast. For a price like this, no parking, and most importantly, NO SLEEP?! Terrible experience. Will never stay again and make sure to spread the word.

    We really liked the quaint atmosphere of the hotel. It was also great to be right in the heart of Banff next to great dining and nightlife. Great room for the price, especially if you are planning on staying out late at one of the night spots within walking distance.

    All in all it was good. The only thing that was just slightly inconvenient is that the parking is in the overnight public parkade behind the hotel. It's a small walk and not as secure as some places but really it's not an issue. If you plan to retire early then this might not be the place for you as its right on the hub of Banff's nightlife. But if you want the Banff experience this is the best place for the price.

    The beds were amazingly comfortable and had a great view of downtown Banff!

    When we first arrived, there was no one at the desk and we called the 24 hour service number about 10 times, always leading to voicemail and having us wait a long time for someone to finally check us in.

    Great Downtown location with easy access to free parking. A very quiet secure building with lowest rates in town. It was a very short walk to restaurants,coffee shops, pubs an internet cafe and many small shopping malls, also two large grocery stores and a 5 or 10 minutes walk to hiking trails.

    Carpet needed replacing in the room

    Location....location....location ... Everything was close

    We stayed in room 204 I think. The bed frame was broken and we could not sleep on the bed. We ended up sleeping on the hard floor. Would like to try again but not sure whether or not to recommend to others.

    We liked the fact that it was very secure that no-one could get onto any floor unless they had a key for the elevator. Also that the hotel was very central and close to shopping, dining etc.

    I could see my vehicle in the parking lot, from my window. It looked safe.

    Other than the Hershey's peanut butter cups that was left on the pillow were stale and people were letting there doors slam behind them and the floor boards were ready to collapse beneath my feet. Oh nothing.
