We were looking for an inexpensive but still a nice place to stay for one night while in Banff. For some reason, most hotels were super expensive when we were there (July 11-12, 2020) and the least expensive choice without having to stay in a hostel was Red Carpet Inn and King Edward. We ended up choosing Red Carpet Inn because the rooms were recently renovated and they also offered a 25% off deal for AB residents. The building although out dated was clean and staff were friendly. Our room was very clean, small balcony facing the main street, nicely remodeled room/decor, big comfy bed, mini fridge, big TV and had a pod type coffee maker. Free parking in the back and close to the downtown area. It was perfect for our one night stay.

Stayed 3 nights. Room was spacious. AC didnt work well. Cleaning staff didn't clean room or make our beds during our stay. We had to ask for hand towels. Hotel needs upgrades badly. Balcony wasnt big enough to stand on or sit and have a drink or coffee. Chairs weren't provided anyway.

I stay in a lot of skier hotels throughout the winter. I was very impressed with Red Carpet in Banff. The place was super cheap for a holiday week, probably because a large portion of the hotel is undergoing renovations. The common areas still have that old ski hotel look, but the renovated rooms are solid three star quality. New mattresses, appliances, retiled bathrooms, large screen TVs, and a super clean common area hot tub. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The free ski busses pick up next door. Get this place this cheap while you still can.

We spent 3 night here just before Christmas and had a lovely stay. The room: refurbished 306, and refurbished to a 5 star standard, beautiful, comfortable, quiet, well appointed room, we were the first in, and without a doubt we will be going back. Staff - kind, considerate, helpful, lovely lovely staff, and we met several of them, the standard never slipped. Location, a 5-10 minute walk from the center of Banff, perfect, with indoor heated parking. Food - breakfast was next door, lots of choice, great area, and really delicious food. Thank you it was the best stay of our holiday around Canada.
