I stayed at the Homestead Inn twice, both in July and August. It was a one night pit stop both times. I couldn't have been happier with this location. It was two streets over from Banff Avenue so walking was a breeze (whether I was heading out to shop, eat, or grab coffee/tea). It is only a short drive to other Banff sites as well. I had a room with a queen bed and it was huge!!!
The staff was super friendly and helpful. Although I was on an upper floor with no elevator, staff helped me carry my bags when I asked. They also gave great recommendations for food.
Loved that I could go across the street to use the pool at the Banff Park Resort, which was open until midnight!!
Be aware that this hotel is located downtown, so night noise is imminent (ie. bar crowds or music). If this type of noise bothers you perhaps this - along with other downtown hotels - won't be for you.
There was no air conditioning, but that is typical of Banff. Closing the curtains during the day kept the sun out, then I opened my window at night...so no big deal.
Only complaint was that during my July stay the coffee pot appeared to be only rinsed, not fully washed. I notified staff and they apologized. This was not a problem in August.
If you want to be able to explore Banff easily on foot this is the place for you!
