  • Family with children
    7.8

    Central and easy to get to downtown attractions and amenities.

    Parkiung was very tight.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Location was OK and they had very good cooking facilities...studio apartment. I was in a camper so had food to consume.

    Bed comfort was horrible...all saggy...I have a bad back and could not sleep a wink. Drove back to Vancouver next day early a.m. to recover.

  • Family with children

    Lots of space as we rented two bedroom

    Older building. No staff in building. Had to go next door for services. No a/C. Poor Internet reception. No pool. Small tv in living room only, none in bedrooms. No Fast check-out, had to drop Keys at different location.

    Facilities

    Heater wasn't working. Response from the staff was very slow.

  • Family with children

    The only good thing about this apt was the location, right beside to the downtown Banff so we can even walk.

    There is a sanitation problem, especially the towel in the washroom was very dirty and I could not find the housemaid for asking some favors. Also there is a very small parking lot so we had a very hard time looking for the parking space in late night.

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    It was clean but that is all I can say that was positive -

    it was old, it was a basement unit, the walls were paper thin as was the ceiling - we had to listen to a large froup or family party from 6 pm to after midnight. I would neverstay again or recommend it to anyone else. It felt like a place university kids would stay on a ski weekend. Very disappointing!
