“great location and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

this is a great place right on the main strip in Banff, but not too close that its too noisy. It was the perfect walking distance to all the main shops. Beds were very comfortable and we had no issues at all. would definitely come back here again.

Just back from 12 night stay at the Banff International, We had a great room (519) it overlooked Safeway but you also had the mountains behind as this room is on the top floor. Excellent location for shops and restaurants in Banff, especially as it was pretty cold so you didn't want to have to walk too far ! Staff all very helpful and friendly.

We got a special, working out to almost nothing per night in Banff, we had nothing to lose as the location was perfect - across the street from the Safeway, right at the start of the shops and restaurants on Banff Ave (none of the noise from the clubs/restaurants but only a couple of blocks away to get there). We thought there would be something wrong with it for sure, but, there wasn't. Clean, comfy beds, noise policy after 11pm, Ricky's for breakfast downstairs, nice entrance/etc. The rooms were basic, but clean/comfy/quiet/location made for a perfect vacation.

Room Tip: We didn't get a view, we were just happy it was a quiet room but it overlooked the roof/heater...

On our first trip to Banff in September we stumbled upon this hotel with a great package which was a night rate ($200) that included the gondola ticket and a lake cruise. Great value for money and we enjoyed it a lot. You cannot beat the location of this hotel, it's right in the centre of it all. The hotel itself can do with a revamp but who needs to stay in the room for long when there is so much to see outside.

We got a two nights for one rate so was well worth the price. The location (2 blocks from the centre of town) was excellent. Parked the truck on Friday and didn't have to drive till we left Sunday. Garage was a tight fit to get in 6'1" clearance) but roomy inside. Room was very clean and smelled nice. Was a great size with a comfy bed. I read that there may be issues with noise but was nice and quiet. Our view was non-existent (roof view) but with the price we paid for the weekend ($183 all in) that was no big deal. Room was hot though so needed to crack the window and run the overhead fan at night. All in all I will definitely stay again for that price.

We stayed here for 10 days during the skiing season. The Hotel location is ideal for easy access to shopping and eating establishments. We were unlucky to have very noisy neighbours for 3 nights but these were sorted out by hotel staff. The hot tub was great after a hard days skiing but the clean towels were sometimes in short supply. The staff were always polite and helpful. Overall, a hotel that I would choose again.
