Very good value and right in the centre of Banff. A bit noisy from the people above us. Lots of parking available. The lady at the front desk was very nice and welcoming. Would stay here again. Thank you

Very kind and friendly staff. The rooms are clean. Beds just need updating. Love staying because it's close walking distance to downtown. We always stay when coming to Banff and that's a lot. Would recommend friends and family to stay.

We had friends from Ontario come visit for a week. They have never been to the mountains so we decided to surprise them with a 2 nights stay in the beautiful town of Banff. We booked via the internet, read the reviews which a lot of people complain about but for the price, we decided to give it a try....

Banff is a popular tourist destination so as expected most of the hotels are pricey. So, when I found this hotel with only $109- /night with 2 queen sized beds I booked it right away. It looks simple and old from the outside but their rooms were spacious, clean, complete with a TV, fridge, coffee maker and most of all...

This is a very basic motel which is good for a couple of nights but no longer. It obviously relies on its central location to draw in guests. The rooms are adequate at best; there is no lift to the second or third floor. You can use the pool and hot tub in the Banff Springs opposite (they own this...

A budget motel in an expensive town. The room was spacious, with two beds which were very comfortable. Carpets on stairs, in hallways and in the room had seen better days, but for the rest all was very clean and tidy. The staff at reception very friendly and gave excellent service. The location of this motel is conveniently close to...

We stayed at the Homestead Inn "budget" hotel in Banff, Alberta for 3 nights at the end of August because it was one of the only hotels that allows dogs and we wanted to take our dog along on this trip. Since it was high season in Banff when we went, there were no other hotels to switch too, unless...

Location is the only reason why I am rating it as average. The location is central and it is a short walking distance to restaurants and shops. The hotel itself is old and in any other city aside from banff, the price would have been considered outrageous. The room was hot with no air conditioning. We were lucky that the...
