We stayed for one night this past weekend, and although it is not usually the place we stay in Banff, we were arriving with another family who were staying in a different room and decided to give the Inns of Banff a try.
While the outside shows its age slightly, the inside is a very pleasant surprise. It's very clean and it certainly has all the amenities you could need.
Finding the room was a bit confusing as there are "crosswalks" in the hotel and many sets of stairs if you land on the wrong level, but it wasn't impossible to figure out.
Our room had a mountain view and a balcony that looked right onto Cascade Mountain! The rooms are a great size and we had a table and chairs as well as a large reading chair next to the bed.
Two sinks, one in the bathroom and one outside allow for more than one person to prepare for the day, and the small fridge was very convenient.
The two queen beds were comfy and there was a good selection of cable channels on the t.v.
We made use of the large, outdoor hot tub which was supervised by a staff member and we were pleased that someone approached a group of younger people to ask them to remove the alcohol that they had brought with them into the hot tub area.
They provided nice sized towels if you didn't happen to bring your own.
Breakfast the next morning was had at the restaurant downstairs and it was a lovely hot buffet breakfast with juice selections and fruit. Everyone in our party left highly satisfied.
Quiet policy must be enforced because it was the most quiet hotel we've stayed in, in Banff, and especially on a weekend.
Friendly staff, quick and efficient check-in and out, and great service all around. We'll be back!
