          Had a really good stay. Clean showers good cheap food and friendly people. They rent out bear spray from the front desk which was handy for hiking. The staff had good local knowledge and were happy to give advice.

          Samesun Banff is walking distance to many restaurants and stores. It is good for those hoping to go out at night. The Beaver Bar is unfortunately pretty noisy when you're trying to sleep. The beds all have a small ledge to act as a nightstand...More
