Bumpers Inn
Ranked #29 of 33 Hotels in Banff
Reviewed 16 June 2012

Definitely budget accommodation. Nothing fancy about the place, but not much to complain about either. What I liked: Large room with a very high ceiling (probably only 2nd floor rooms have this), equipped with fridge and microwave, clean, comfortable, large new flat screen TV, quiet location, and little noise from neighbouring rooms. I also liked that each room has a door leading either to a balcony or ground level in the inner court yard. The large spruce trees in the middle of the court yard host a family of red squirrels, whose antics can amuse one for hours - please keep the squirrels! Location is at the end of the hotel strip in Banff, but only 10 minutes to walk downtown along Banff avenue. Price for 5 nights was probably less than one night at the Banff Springs and other hotels. What could be better: rooms too hot - every though weather was cold and I had two windows wide open I couldn't quite get the room to cool off at night. Also, internet service went out at least twice in the four evenings I was there, and the front desk staff seemed powerless to do anything about it. Why is that hotels find it so hard to maintain constant wireless internet while most of us maintain our home wireless networks with few if any interruptions?!

We book a Queen Room for a simple 2 nights stay. The room is basic but if you want a cheap place to sleep then it is a good choice.

* check-in time is before 11pm. You have to make a call and get the key from a safe box if you arrive after 11pm.
* wifi is not free. it charges $3, one time charge though.
* location is good. enough parking space.
* staff is friendly.
* room is basic with a mini fridge.

Bumpers Inn was a very good choice for our overnight stay in Banff. It is at the far end of hotel row, which meant it was very quiet. We walked into "downtown" to stretch our legs, which took all of 10 minutes. The room was large with windows that opened into a central courtyard. King sized bed. Clean and well kept. I didn't notice that there were no bath towels until I was getting out of the shower (just an oversight on the part of the cleaning staff, I'm sure) and $15 was taken off our bill when I mentioned that at checkout. I would recommend Bumpers Inn for pleasant and reasonably priced accommodation in Banff.

A very nice place, with a spacious room, very clean bathroom, comfortable bed, and even a little fridge and a microwave. Great very friendly staff at check-in, very accommodating and helpful. Located a bit far from the town's centre, but we were driving so it didn't matter much. Overall, a very clean, quiet and friendly place. Would stay here again for sure!

we got a place last second the rates were low so I wasn't expecting anything great but it turned out to be really nice, clean and had a mini fridge and microwave which was nice. Room was huge with a nice view. Staff were friendly. No swimming pool or hot tub but then again most hotels in banff only claim to have one and then you find yourself in a towel crossing the lot to use another hotels facilities. Not nice. Thanks bumpbers!!!

Room Tip: rooms on corner are nice and big!!

The hotel is at the worst location in Banff, at the end of Banff Ave, but it offers a huge room, it is very clean and provides everything you need. The only thing that was disappointing was that there is no luggage room for check-in and check-out day.
