Location was great

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
The price was great as was the location. Two nights, people were obviously drunk and very loud in the middle of the night, our only real complaint.

Great Price, Great Location, Outdated/Worn Beds

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, close to everything downtown
Cons: no free breakfast, poor beds
I loved being right in the heart of Banff but the bed was very poor. I was tired most the trip and had to take naps from not getting a good nights rest. I'm usually not picky at all but you can feel the springs on your face! Fix the beds, perform slight renovations and this place will be a winner. When I look back I would've paid a little more per night for a different place because when you're tired it puts a damper on the trip. Hope this review helps. Enjoy Banff!
