Reviewed 21 July 2009

I have stayed here a few times. Everytime I was very happy with the accomodation. Prices are low (between $65.00 - $80.00/night during the off season. The rooms are large and very clean. Parking is just outside your door. All rooms have a patio or balcony which face a courtyard.

The restaurant next door is great with a wonderful salad bar and prices are reasonable with great food.

My review says "wonderful place to stay in the off season". I say this because I believe there is no air-conditioning which could be uncomfortable in the summer.

I stayed two nights and found that the room was clean and the staff were very nice and helpful. I paid around $150.00 / night and from what I understand, that is a fairly decent price to pay for a room in Banff. The hotel is about 10 minutes of walking to the 'downtown' core of Banff, but it's a walk past all of the other hotels, so you get a chance to check out all the action on the strip, which is nice. Most people visiting Banff should expect a bit of hiking anyway!! There's a gas station with a convenience store directly in front of the hotel, and a liquor store around the corner. No breakfast is included, but there is free coffee available in the office in the AM. All in all, it's a decent place to stay and probably one of the cheapest hotels available.

It is no doubt the hotel is clean.But the way they do their business is not professonal. I first went to Banff info center to check hotel availability.The reception gave me three including this hotel.I called in and confirmed the daily rate is 129(or 139 i am not sure which one). And I drove to the hotel and confirmed the rate again, then checked in. Here I made a mistake. I signed the check-in letter before they put down the daily rate. When I checked out two days late. I found i was charged for 155/nighte. Someone put the higher rate later. i contacted the manger named LONA but she said there is nothing she could do and said some people waiting for check-in and could not talk with me any more. Indeed it is really not a big money.But they do their business is not professonal. Just a remider, when you checkin, be careful the rate and sign.

Nice big rooms with lots of space. Clean and no evidence of bed bugs when we were there. The location is quiet and towards the outskirts but close enough to walk into town for meals. Nice clean bathroom with a good power shower. The staff are friendly and helpful. We paid around $150 per night for a double room in the middle of July. You can buy provisions at the local Safeway just before you get to the main parade of shops.

Bumpers is a great all you need motel in Banff, large rooms, friendly staff, clean and well appointed. No frills but who needs them when they always cost extra. Conveniently placed for ski hire and the ski bus to Banff's slopes. Whilst it is the first/last inn in town the walk in is perfectly reasonable and it means you're first on the ski bus in the morning and first off on the way home.

The jewel in Bumpers crown however is the bar and beef house it comes attached to. A great place to hang out for a post piste pitcher, pool, or good value piece of Canadian steak. The bar staff are incredibly welcoming and the place soon feels like home from home.

Whilst there is no breakfast with the room the Husky store a stones throw away does a mean line in muffins, providing the staff turn up to open up.

A great place to stay with a group of friends.

My sister and I stayed at Bumpers Inn March 22. The room appeared clean and the staff were very friendly. However, when I woke in the morning I was not alone but rather had visitors - bedbugs. When I contacted the office, they cam immediately to verified that the bugs were in fact bedbugs. Although the person who came to check out the situation claimed that the hotel had never had bedbugs before, she sure new a lot about their habits and did not want us to look between the mattress and the box spring. They did not charge us for the room.
