Reviewed 9 May 2016

it's not expensive. it's an eay walk to downtown. it's close to food, liquor, gas. it's relatively clean, has cable tv, good washroom facilities, localy (fairly) made soaps (yummy clean), coffee machine, fridge and microwave. Now, for the more discerning travellers: the reception area is across the street since the Banff Inns owns the Bumpers motel. some rooms have balconies, some don't. parking is at a premium. the pool is far, far away in the back of the Banff Inns, as mentionned, across the street. still. pretty good.

The rooms are all being renovated. Nice and clean. There is a nice courtyard for sitting out on a nice evening. Parking is limited and not for large vehicles. The hot tub is located across the street in the Inns of Banff Park.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor.

after a long drive the only thing we needed was a good sleep in a comfortable place and thats what we got, a clean comfortable bed. excellent for the price we paid.
only weird thing is that you have two go out for the reception in case you need to coz theres no front desk at the location.

Stayed: February 2016

Bumpers Inn was a great stay for a quick (cheap) night away. Some confusion around check in- service wasn't the greatest and there is no check in desk at the bumpers in, so to save you the trouble the check in desk is across banff ave in the inns of banff lodge (beside the Japanese restaurant). The rooms are a basic room, nothing to fancy (except the awesome rocky mtn soap products in the bathroom), and the outdoor hot pools make up for all the room lacks!

I am a local from Calgary and I stay at this place when I can afford to sleep in Banff. This little hotel is the best value you will find in Banff. For a long time it was affordable but now it's on par with other Banff accommodation because of tourism pressures. I think it's still better then other places for the price because it's private (very raer for Banff) located in front of a forested place where deer roam - you can even go for a walk in there. The rooms are clear and have coffee, refrigerator and all the comforts of other hotels - just a little 70's style which to me makes it more cozier especially with all the wood. If you rent one of the top floor rooms the entire room is wooded with big ceilings - very nice. Bathroom is very basic but who cares when you are in the great outdoors. I would highly recommend this place...still expense but as affordable as you can get in a place like Banff...for the price you will pay in other more commercialized places....

Room Tip: Top floor wooded rooms are prettier

We came for a stag party so we were not picky where we stayed. We stayed in the 200 levels whgich is across the street. They are def outdated to my liking, but clean, and walls are concrete so you cant hear your neighbours. Would stay again

Room was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The location is reasonably convenient but necessary on-street parking with a trailer can be a challenge. My biggest disappointment lies in the strange fact that there is no reception at the hotel. One has to walk almost 2 blocks to another hotel to register. Also annoying is the fact that information in the room indicated that room service was available and even provided the extension number to call. We called and they took our order. When the meals didn't arrive we called again and were told that they don't deliver to that location but we could walk over and pick it up. Staff from the Desk Clerk to the Room Service Rep were curt, unfriendly, unprofessional and kept repeating the "company policy" mantra as excuses for every negative. They demonstrated no interest in pleasing a customer. I would recommend staying away from this property.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so, if you have heavy luggage, request a ground floor room.
