The Homestead Inn is one of the cheapest places to stay in Banff. The rooms are very outdated, but clean. The best part of staying here is that the location is right off Banff Ave, and it's extremely easy to walk from the hotel to the rest of the town. The staff and friendly, but do not staff the desk...

Dear K8Ciara, Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us! I apoligize for the fire alarm waking you up and lasting for a little while at such an inconvenient time. Unfortunately this is one of the risks of hotels and we did everything in our power to ensure that the alarm was silenced as soon as...

High service quality seems to be an afterthought for many businesses these days, but this is not the case for the Homestead Inn in Banff! The best hotel experience I have had in many years of visiting Banff! My group and I are still impressed at how kind and professional the staff at this hotel are. Right from the reservation,...

The staff when booking was friendly and helpful. The room was neat and tidy. A few lights did not work but there were plenty. Towels and linens were clean and extras were appreciated. Use of spa at Banff Lodge made the stay!!!!!!

The hotel was very convenient, close to shopping, restaurants, and movie theater. We enjoyed the use of the hot tub across the street. The staff directed us to a ski rental shop that delivered our skis right to the hotel. The room was basic, but clean and worked for us as a family.

Great price, nice location, comfy beds. We will definitely come back to stay here. Yes, the carpets are worn... Big deal, I'm not there to sleep on the floor 😀 If you want a five star with great carpets stay somewhere else.. 😁 Can't wait to go back!!

Reviewed 1 January 2017

The rooms were tired and rugs stained, loose floor tiles in bathroom with the finish in tubs being nonexistent. I felt the website was misleading. On a positive note the front end staff was awesome. The cost of the rooms was far too high for what you received.

Very good value and right in the centre of Banff. A bit noisy from the people above us. Lots of parking available. The lady at the front desk was very nice and welcoming. Would stay here again. Thank you

Very kind and friendly staff. The rooms are clean. Beds just need updating. Love staying because it's close walking distance to downtown. We always stay when coming to Banff and that's a lot. Would recommend friends and family to stay.

Banff is a popular tourist destination so as expected most of the hotels are pricey. So, when I found this hotel with only $109- /night with 2 queen sized beds I booked it right away.
