Bumpers inn is a fantastic place to stay, the rooms were very clean and modern, there was plenty of space in the room. The staff were very friendly. The bus stops right outside which goes into the town centre regularly. There is high speed internet and you are within walking distance from some great restaurants. I can't fault this place and cannot wait to come back!

This motel has been updated since we stayed here 12 months ago so, although it looks rather dowdy from the outside, our room was modern and comfortable. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, with advice about places to visit. There’s no complimentary breakfast so, if you’re going to buy some food, do so on the previous day when you’re passing a supermarket. The motel is easy to find, just off the the highway and clearly signposted, but is in a really quiet location. An excellent place for a (relatively) cheap overnight stop.

I was pleasantly surprised by our room at Bumpers. If was of good size and nicely laid out with a slightly alpine decor. It was also tidy and clean. The room had a large flatscreen TV, shower over bath, microwave, refrigerator but no ironing board or iron. Our window looked out onto a garden courtyard but I noted it was possible to see into other units and vice versa. Some units had their own small deck. Service at the front desk was very good.

Room Tip: There is only one laundry in town based at 317 Banff Ave. It is only open from 9am-8pm. Also if you...

Bumpers is a basic looking motel situated off the "main drag" in Banff, but close enough to walk to it. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. Rooms come with WiFi, TVs, microwave and a mini fridge. Get an upstairs room if you can because they come with a balcony. The first floor rooms have more direct access to a large common inner courtyard. The staff are friendly.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have balcony.

Great rooms with small ref and microwave. Very comfortable. Although no AC. It was a problem and fans for the room supplied. Hotel staff very helpful and it was even more economical than the hostel. Although it is located on the far end of town there is a bus service across the street and easy driving into center of town especially if one takes the street that parallels Main Street. Very clean and comfortable.

This is a budget hotel on the edge of town. There is a pleasant court yard but beware of mosquitoes. The room was a good size with 2 double beds, a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker and flat screen TV. There is no AC. The beds were comfortable and we were not bothered by noise. We were in the front of the building and found the room stuffy even with the windows opened, no cross ventilation. Check in was efficient.

Spent three nights here while on a mountain tour with a friend. The Inn is the first hotel you come to when entering the town on Banff Ave so extremely easy to find and get to. Being situated just around the corner and down the side street half a block and actually at the edge of the residential area is far enough off Banff Ave it's very quiet. The woods behind the Inn makes it feel like your not in town at all and handy If you have a dog.
The rooms a decent size and have a fride and microwave and coffee pot. The room has cement walls so very soundproof between rooms and not bad from the outaide but the room exhoed so the dog was a little barky about passerbyes and her bark sounded louder than it is... shes in training and will get better.. The room has two doors .. One to the outside and one to the courtyard patio area which is very nice. I had my coffee out there one morning and drinks one evening but the Mosquitos were a bit of a bother. A can of Repelent would have fixed that but didn't have any. Otherwise it was very nice and relaxing. There is a lot of space for a couple more tables which could be handy for eating or group gathering. There is one big table but even a couple smaller ones would be handy for some. We used two chairs with end table between which was perfect for relaxing. The only night we ate in was when it was raining so would not have needed a table to eat at anyway. For us the patio was good.
Water pressure in the shower was great.. Pipes banged when turning the sink on which bothered the dog but again she's in training. Rooms were clean even being pet friendly. The price was excellent for 2 beds and a dog. The hotel around the corner has a very good breakfast buffet. Also close to other restaurants on Banff Ave even being at the end like we were. Very handy .. All in all.. Definately recommend the hotel to friends and would stay again.
