    My husband and I spent 2 nights at this property during a road trip from Calgary to Vancouver. The location was very walkable to downtown Banff, and the river view was a nice touch. For the price, the hotel provided most of the essentials (hairdryer, tv, coffee maker, refrigerator); It did not have an iron or safe. It was clean, the staff was friendly/accommodating, and the parking was easy/free. The hotel definitely would benefit from a renovation, as the carpet/shower tile/wallpaper/etc. is pretty dated. Other than that, we have no complaints given that we were there to explore Banff and not be in our hotel room.
