5.1 Passable
Cons:The advertised "superior" room for which we pre-paid almost $400 a night for 6 nights was on the first floor with a walking path right next to the window, so there was no privacy at all. The safe did not work. The towels were fryed at the ends and some had stains. After our complaint, the manager of duty first lied that there were no rooms available. After the threat that we would request money return and move to another hotel, he suddenly discovered a premier room available two nights later, but requested that we check out from the current room by 11am and only check into the new one after 4pm, being for 5 hrs roomless. Only the next day the new manager on duty fixed these issues and transferred us to the room in a normal way and with apologies. The breakfast is mediocre to put it mildly, many motels have better ones. All in all, they charged these enormous prices only since they could - the location was great.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great staff. Very friendly & halpful
6.8 Okay
Pros:The location was good and it was clean
Cons:The room was small and the bathroom was extremely small. And our back patio was above the recreation/ game room so it was noisy.
8.8 Great
Pros:Centrally located on main Banff Ave. Bus service available to hot springs.
Cons:There was a very slight small nose of a fans or something running at night. It took a little investigation to figure out the bus schedule to the Hot Springs etc.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Good location very friendly staff. The steam room was good bed was pretty good. I want to list more stuff but i cant think of anything else. The underground parking was great.
Cons:Room was way to hot and was not able to cool it down, Went to have a dip in the hot tub.. and really it should be called a cold tub i have been in warmer pools. The breakfast was ok bacon was under cooked and was all stuck together. They need more fruit.
