“Good Value-Nice Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

The rooms are a good size and mostly clean (a stray sock under a chair excluded). The hotel is close to downtown, within a nice walking distance. With the included hot/cold breakfast and the reasonable price, the experience was good in value. Staff were universally friendly and helpful.

This is a very nice Best Western Plus. Roomy bedrooms. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. But beware of two traps. The underground parking has very low clearance on the inside portion and you can break off luggage racks or skis if you drive too far back into the overhead pipes (around 2 meters clearance). Second, their lobby computer is set in a dark corner and it may not be obvious at first that it has been hacked by malicious teenagers.
Still, this Best Western is the perfect choice for those just passing through Banff.

This 3-storey property is located just on the outskirts of the Banff downtown area (an easy 5-10 minute walk) making it quiet and still convenient to everything. Having travelled to many BW properties, I would not rank this as a "plus", but it is a quality basic property that is reflected in its value pricing. Amenities include an underground parking garage, small indoor pool and spa, free wi-fi access, fridge and coffee maker in your room and a basic breakfast buffet that includes a variety of hot and cold items. Although this is an older property, it is in good repair and many updates are apparent throughout. All areas of the hotel were clean, the beds were very comfortable and there were some nice touches such as the 24-hour complimentary beverage bar just off of the lobby. I found some things lacking - there was no safe in either room we occupied and there are no luggage carts available in the lobby on the main floor. They are available in the parking garage, which is only accessible with your room key after you're checked in. I found this set up awkward but understandable given the tiny size of the lobby. The garage level elevators will take you directly to your room, so it is not a big deal. The front desk staff were friendly and courteous, but do not expect concierge service or advice on local restaurants or attractions - after all that isn't really their job anyway is it?

Very pleased with our stay. Good base location for a ski vacation. Indoor hot-tub & pool was a hit with my children, and great to relax after full day at the slopes... Free Breakfast was OK. Friendly & helpfull staff. Property is dated but our room was very clean.
