Basic but good
My sister and I stayed here for two nights in late January and found the hotel to be quite good. It is a short walk (5mins) from the centre town which we found really convenient. It isn't a fancy hotel, but the check in process was easy, and the room spacious and clean which is what we were looking for in a hotel. We didn't eat at any of the restaurants at the affiliated hotel or use their facilities so I can't comment on that. My one issue with the hotel is the lack of free wifi. Wifi wasn't mentioned at check in and when I enquired I was told of the $5 per day surcharge. I think it would be a lot easier if the room prices were $5/night higher and they scrap the wifi fee, it was just annoying having to pay additional even though it was only a small amount. Would I stay here again if in Banff, sure.

Banff is gorgeous
A mid range hotel in a good location in Banff. For all the area's green messages, the hotel had disposable cups in the room. A better option would be to have ceramic crockery and metal cutlery available. To have to go down and ask for a spoon seems a bit ridiculous.

Stunning Bow River
Close to everything, especially the Bow River to walk along. You can also use the gym and pool next door.

The hotel was not ready for us when we arrived. We had told them we had a pet, but we were originally booked on the 2nd floor. They did find us a room on the first floor. I feel the $25.00 per night pet charge is a little high. We have a small house dog and she never makes any ungodly messes. The beds have seen their best times. My bed was very hard and I ended up with sore and aching back and hips. I also feel the room was not clean as there was a lot of dust build up in the carpets. I know because I put my foot which I had put a sock on and placed my foot on my knee to put the other sock on. My black pants were marked with dust from dirty carpets. And I had trouble breathing due to uncleanliness.

Hard old beds that need uodating
This hotel is in an amazing location on the river and away from the main 'drag'. The hotel is dated which is ok but they really need to update their beds. They are hard as a rock, old and very uncomfortable. The comforters were bulky and heavy and the sheets and mattress covers old. My most uncomfortable stay ever.
