    Room was spacious and clean. The location was quiet and there was a convenient store close to the motel which was very convenient. Beds were so comfortable. All the amenities were updated. Will definitely choose to live here again if coming back to Banff.

    The renovated rooms were very nice, and very very clean. Loved the little balcony, loved the simple clean furniture and wall finishes, loved the shower. Overall a very nice room, better than expected, and I will stay there again. Check in and check out at the hotel down the street was easy and quick. Parking was not bad (a little bit tight, not wonderful for larger vehicles, but we parked at the end where there was more room). Also happy the parking was free. Had a good sleep, no noise. The hooks on the wall were super handy to hang all our stuff up and stay organized. Everything worked great. We had a great stay!

    Uncooperative Staff.

    This motel was fully renovated. The room was spacious and the microwave was a nice touch. The only problem we had was when we checked in. We had booked two nights but at check-in, due to unforeseen, we wanted to only stay one night. The staff was very uncooperative and insisted we pay for two nights even if we only stayed one night.

    It was very cute and had lots of extra touches in the room. Bed was very comfy, the towels were heated. It had a fridge and a microwave. The only downside was that the heater was quite noisy!
