“Wow what a Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

We checked into the Banff Inn, Barb was great to deal with and was super friendly. We had a problem with our TV not working, she had it replaced or fixed by the time we got back from shopping and walking the Banff Strip.
The room was a bit small on size, but made up for it with the comfort of the bed and pillows.
There was under ground parking, which is a must when the weather gets cold like it does there.
Hot tub and sauna was a nice treat after a long day of shopping.
And there was complimentary breakfast in the morning, in which there was lots to choose from.
Overall our experince here was great!

The Banff inn is a nice relaxing hotel not far from the main town in Banff. It has a good relaxed atmosphere and nice spacious rooms with good beds. It has a nice hot tub, sauna and steam room area.

We stayed at the Banff Inn in January, our first visit to Canada, wanting to check out the Canadian Pow and how we loved it. The Banff Inn is a basic hotel with very simple furnishing, the rooms are an excellent size, and always very warm. The rooms were always kept clean and the beds made everyday, and coffee and tea kept stocked. The breakfast is a Basic continental style, but enough to keep you going for a few hours.
Facilities to keep your snowboards and skis are available in the underground car park and I never had concerns with leaving my board there.
The Hot tub 'thingy' was always lovely at the end of a hard day for easing the aches.
Its about a 15 minutes walk along Banff avenue to the mainshopping malls and restaurants.

All in all we were very pleased with the Banff Inn and found it reasonable priced for our stay.

A friend and I stayed here for a "catch up girls weekend" and had a great time. The hotel was pretty much deserted so we had the hottub/stream room area to ourselves. This is a very convienently located hotel, taking about 15 mins. to get to "downtown". I was a little taken aback when we first saw our room as there was a big stain on the carpet in the entrance, however the rest of the room was very clean although you could tell the difference between cleaning staff as there were more "nice touches" when we returned to our room on Saturday morning compared to Friday morning. The breakfast is your basic continental but enough to get you going in the morning. I wouldn't heistate to book at this hotel again, keeping in mind we were there in low season.

I stayed at the Banff Inn for 1 night with a group of friends. We chose this hotel because of its location on Banff ave and in the town, and also because they could accomodate 6 of us in one room for a very reasonable price. We had a loft room for 6 people, with two double beds on the main floor and one in the loft. The room was clean, modern, and had a big flat screen on the main and an older tv upstairs. There was also a coffeemaker, microwave, and bar fridge. Check in was quick and easy, and there is underground parking so you never have to look for a place on the street. I was most impressed by the toiletries- a set of 6 of everything for the 6 of us- very unusual (and awesome so we didn't have to share!!). The hotel also offered us a free breakfast (continental in the dining room- quick and easy, but not fancy), and had a pool and hot tub. The hotel itself was full over the weekend, but all the staff were calm and pleasant, and you'd never had known it was full if not for the sign. It was quiet in our room, and very comfortable. I'd stay here again.

We stayed there for 2 nights. The Room was big and clean. You can walk to Banff Downtown in about 20 Minutes. Very Good Hotel for this price, incl. a sufficient Continental Breakfast. Main criticism: breakfast room is not big enough, so it´s possible, that a bus group has priority before the other guests. That´s not so good if you want to start your trip early in the morning with breakfast.
