        location of breakfast and the muffins/pastries were pretty poor - they seemed damp and clawing. Perhaps they had not been properly defrosted.

        We had a most enjoyable time at the High Country Inn .All tthe staff were friendly and helpfull, hotel very clean and the breakfast was good.We had a lovely time in the pool and found going into the hot tub very relaxing. The location of the hotel was good as we did not have a car and shops etc was just a short walk away.

        The location was acceptable, and it was comfortable.....

        The remote control didnt work in the room , they tried to fix it but it was temporary, it worked for a short period of time then, would not work after that... frustrating.......

        Location is great, room was clean, nice mountain view, close to shopping and grocery.

        Parking was crowded cars blocking other cars' exit; breakfast lounge not ventilated properly.

        Beds really comfortable, and hotel close to downtown

        The room smelled like urine and had to be aired out all the time, no balcony

        We don't like the hotel at all.

        It's a running down hotel. The hotel is running at low budget. It is like a 2 star hotel, but charge a 4 star hotel price. The management doesn't care about the customer, only think about how to run the hotel at low cost.

        Cleanliness of room and Continental breakfast.

        Check-in not friendly. Arrived at 3:30 and was told in a not polite manner that check-in was at 4:00 but would let us in if room was available.She could have said nothing, checked that it was available and just let us in.

      • Older travelers

        Not much! The service at the front desk was not friendly at all. When I questioned an additional charge for their green products at the front desk, the person got very abrupt with me. Then when I went to get my final bill again he was anything but honest with me. I will not recommend this place my husband and I were even afraid to walk in sock feet in our room. I felt it was that unclean. Loved Banff but not the hotel experience.

        Dark unfriendly reception area.Dark rooms, dirty bathroom doors, small dirty hallways. Parking was horrid. There hardly was enough room to manoeuvre our small car into the parking garage.
