“Great except hot tub is too hot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Hotel is down the street from the "main downtown" which I think makes it cheaper. Still close to see everything. Room is small, but all you need is the basics. You don't stay in it long. Breakfast was all cold items, but still a good variety including large muffins. The hot tub was extremely hot. We got back early evening as there doesn't seem to be very many spaces in there underground parking. I don't know where I would've parked if it was full.

Of the 3 hotel we stayed during our Canadian Rockies Tour, this hotel offers the biggest of the Double Queen room, and the best view from room. Only negative for us is the lack of a kettle in the room. The food variety is limited in the hotel pub/restaurant, and the breakfast they offered was not as good as the other two hotels in Jasper and Lake Louise.

This amazing find slightly out of town is economically priced and spotlessly clean and shiny. The staff are amazing and go out of their way to be helpful and assist with any of your needs. Mountain view is awesome and I would definitely visit again!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back facing the mountain

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We stayed at the Banff Inn for 2 nights in a 2 x queen room. the room was on the opposite side to Banff Avenue and had views of the mountains from the very small balcony.

The car parking garage was quite small, if you have a mid to large size car I would just park on the stree.

The breakfast was basically toast and cereal and was very difficult to get food during the peak times. On our final morning we just grabbed some muffins and left.

All in all I would stay again as your main purpose in Banff is stay out of the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the peak times for breakfast as the room is very small

A great room, comfortable bed with lots of pillows and nice linens. We were on the street side, with a corner room and two balcony doors, yet very quiet. One word of caution, this hotel takes lots of bus clients, and you don't want to be requiring front desk service or checking in behind a busload of tourists! The breakfast was tasty and filling. Check out The Keg a block to the left, well worth the visit as well.

Room Tip: Suspect that the rooms away from the street are quieter, but we found our corner front room quite qu...

My husband and I just got back from one nights stay at the banff inn and had a fabulous experience. The staff are friendly and helpful. Everthing was perfectly clean.
I loved that they had a few different sizes of pillows in the room making our nights rest feel more like home. And it was so quiet! It was our first night away from the kids so a quiet ad comfortable rest was very appreciated!
The pizza place/pub was great. The hot tub/sauna/steam room were great and super clean!
Breakfast was nice although very basic. We would have appreciated some things such as bacon and yogurt.
Totally recommend this hotel and will stay again!

Best way to describe our stay, was plea envy and nice. Loved the steam room, liked the beds, hated the parking when we came back late. There isn't enough parking but we were warned in advance so it was our choice to go out. The breakfast in the morning was fairly simple but did the trick.
