Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We were looking for 3 rooms: one for a couple, one for a couple and one child, one for a single person and one child. We were given 3 rooms with 4 beds each and paid the premium for 4 beds in each room. This was very much like a hostel rather than a hotel. I didn't pick up on that when I booked. Somehow it should have been made clearer.

This property served its purpose. It was clean, the bed was comfortable. There was no luxury whatsoever but we were not seeking luxury, just a place to sleep overnight so that we could enjoy Banff the next day.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The rooms didn't have air conditioning and only some rooms had fans. (ours did not) The hostel is a hike to anything about 2km each way. I thought I read somewhere about complimentary pancakes.. no such thing Very noisy. people knocking, slamming doors up and down the hallway beds were uncomfortable
