Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

We stayed here based on TA reviews and weren't disappointed. Located right inside the entrance to Banff National Park this hotel is right across the street from shopping and restaurants. Prices are reasonable for location. I'd rate it a very good. value even rooms are rather small

Value for money, great location to lake louise. very nice room cleanliness was exceptionally good. Breakfast was included. The breakfast room was quite quirky in the basement and again good value for your money. Make sure you visit the Outpost pub great place to unwind from the days activitys.

Overall - the rooms were good for what we needed. Somewhere to lay our heads for a quick sleep, shower and breakfast. The continental breakfast was okay - very basic but acceptable, We stayed in the older rooms - so nothing fancy - just basic. The cleanliness was good, however the one bed we did not use was poorly made...

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, room was clean and fridge was provided. Bed comfy, wifi excellent. Breakfast was simple but nice, a hot option would be a good idea. Overall a good stay. Reasonably cheap considering the area.

The room and beds were comfortable enough. There is a hotub and sauna but I didn't use them as it requires walking wet between buildings. The service was friendly. This is not a fancy place - like an average motel. The continental breakfast was good. SO- for what you get it was a good value.

Friendly staff, free breakfast, comfortable beds, great location, and Wi-Fi. Enough said for $99 US. No frills just a good night's rest and a basic breakfast to get the day going. Would return in a heartbeat.
