Quick Review: Although the room was a clean, the heat along with the bedding, was unbearable and really ruined the entire stay. It is conveniently located and has underground parking but other than that I would not recommend it and you should save your money. On Thursday March 16th my boyfriend and I booked a night in at the King...

I stayed here for a romantic weekend and was seriously disappointed for the price we paid. Outdated, bed was horribly uncomfortable, bathroom was just gross. Great location, but that's about all it offers.

Comfortable, clean and good value for money. Each room has a fridge and there is a communal microwave. However the walls aren't very which and you can expect lively Australians acting like fools throughout the night. That said the staff are great at dealing with these issues and just call the police and have them removed. Perfect for a couple...

Stayed Feb 11/17 Saturday Night - Very shocked at the size of room, Bed was Queen Size probably more like Double and absolutely terrible, could feel the springs thru mattress, TV was size of my IPhone, and Bathroom very out dated, and dirty. Price of room was more like a $64.00 not $154.00. Website does not JUSTIFY.

Worst customer service. We had a room near the stairs. There was a lot of noise during the night from a proxy 10:45 -2 am. When I request a room they stated it was too late in the day at 4pm. I could have a new room if I wanted to pay the full price for both rooms. The front...

We stayed here for a 2 night ski trip. It was great value for money. Front desk staff were polite and helpful. Parking was nearby in a multi-story and free (for up to 8 hours and overnight). Room was a bit worn (a few dents in the walls and wear in the bathroom). Location is absolutely spot on. For value...

I was very satisfied with this place. Located in the heart of downtown and all the good shops and food. The room was clean, comfy bed. Free wifi in the rooms. The best part is the parking. Only $5/day in an underground secured garage around the corner. They give you a FOB so you can come and go as often...

We stayed here for one night. Can't be the price... especially in Banff. Handy location right on Banff Ave., you can walk to all the shops, restaurants, etc. Room was small and simple, but clean... and you're not spending much time in your room anyway, right? Free wi-fi. Windows that opened to let in a nice breeze. And again, cheap!...

I had read some of the reviews and because it's an older hotel, I didn't expect much but the price was right and the location was great so we decided to take a chance. WELL, we were very pleasantly surprised. While the rooms are small, for the 2 of us it was very cozy. It was nicely decorated and the...

It was an adorable hotel. Small and snuggly. Clean and right in the middle of town with mountain views. Quiet even though on a main road. Price was fantastic. We stayed one night and wanted to stay more. The staff was hugely helpful. Free parking a bonus.
