GREAT, To be able to use the underground parking at Banff Park Lodge. SHOCKED to find out that keys are used on the hotel doors ;did not feel safe. Please fix, take out the yellow rust on the bottom of the toilet bowl. HAPPY for providing electric fan. GREAT LOCATION as it is in downtown area. THANK YOU.

Great location, all the shops are within walking distance, plus you're close to the hot springs and gondola. The room was tidy, the bedding and towels were clean. Only complaint I really have is that the window panes are so thin, they let it a lot of noise from outside, with trains blaring their horns passing by the town every...

Only stayed for one night, the rooms are very spacious and clean and very affordable. Very comfortable bed and pillows, great walking location to downtown. Never used the hotel amenities across the street so cannot comment

You have to manage your expectations when staying at the Homestead, but once you do you will realize it is a good location and a good price to stay here. The room was a good size, bedding was a bit thin but clean. The room had a fridge, which surprisingly is harder to get these days. There is no elevator...

Not the nicest room but it was quiet, fridge in room. Staff was awesome, very knowledgeable. Full access to the Park Lodge Hotel pool/ eucalyptus steam room across the street. Great location, you can walk anywhere in minutes. This was my first visit to Banff and it won't be my last.

It's a great location to stay in Banff. The value is great - it's a safe and comfortable place to stay. We had a dog with us so our choices were limited. It was good to know they keep the animal rooms to the first floor.

This hotel is in need of some tender loving care. Built in the mid seventies. Room was nice, small flat screen tv, limited channels available. Beds were comfy, looked like room was painted recently. No air conditioning and rooms a bit warm at night even with the heat turned down. Had to crack open windows to cool down. Location right...

This place could use a few upgrades but it was clean and quiet. Price wise it was excellent. It's a good place to stay on a budget. It has a pool area to use across the street at the Park Place Lodge that is one of the best in Banff.
