Editor's "Best Value" Picks Jul 23, 2014 | Musetta R.
Why these hotels? I looked for best value hotels in Banff which translates to clean, and budget-friendly accommodation in an otherwise expensive resort town.

Guests should be aware that air conditioning comes at a premium in Banff and many hotel rooms in this city don't have it, even in the more expensive hotels, which seem to reserve air conditioning for their full suites and most expensive rooms. Usually the summer nights are cooler in the mountains, but recently there have been some issues with hot nights and no air conditioning for guests in Banff.

Expect to hear train noise from most places in Banff as the trains blow their whistles at the following road crossings even at night: Banff Avenue just south of the Trans-Canada interchange (about 275m from Banff airport); Compound Road, between Banff Ave and Hawk Ave; and Mount Norquay Road, just north of Railway Avenue (near Rocky Mountaineer Banff Train Station and Banff Mineral Springs Hospital). Hotel rooms facing these road crossings will be louder. The hotels closest to these road crossings are: Brewsters Shadow Lake Lodge, Banff Rocky Mountain Resort and Bow View Lodge. If you are booking at these hotels and a light sleeper, it may be advisable to bring ear plugs with you.

My picks are places that are consistently cheaper places, but you may be able to find a more expensive hotel for less in the off-season months of the year, so I recommend that you pull up all the hotels in Banff and click on the "Price" box to see what's available at the time you are planning to go.

I like the Bumpers Inn because it's located in a quiet part of town. It's only a 16-minute walk or 3-minute drive to Banff's downtown core. There are numerous full-service restaurant choices along Banff Avenue, with the nearest being Bumpers Beef House, two minutes' walk from the hotel. Bumpers Inn has close access to the Trans-Canada Highway as well, with only a 5-minute drive to the nearest interchange.

Their smoke-free rooms are very clean and spacious and well equipped with extras like microwave and mini-fridge and modern flat screen TVs. Some offer balconies which guests like to use for winding down and enjoying the vistas. The hotel had a business centre for guests to catch up on email or work, and is conveniently located adjacent to the bus stop for the downtown shuttle service. Wi-Fi is an extra $3.10 per stay, but parking is free for all guests. There's no air conditioning, which is typical for Banff, but the hotel offers fans.

When to visit Banff
If you are under the impression that Banff is a one-season resort town, you'd be wrong. Banff is a beautiful place to visit all year around. The summer provides comfortable weather to check out the numerous hiking and biking trails and take in the beautiful mountain scenery. The fall gives visitors a chance to witness the beauty of the leaves changing colours across Banff National Park. The winter, Banff's bread and butter, gives skiers and winter-sport enthusiasts a snow-covered playground. If you are looking to visit during a quiet time, try October and November. Typically this is the off season for the city as it is too cold for hiking trails and not yet ready for downhill skiing.

Where to stay in Banff
Downtown Banff is the place to be. The majority of Banff hotels are found in the downtown core, however there are some accommodations away from the town centre and tucked away in scenic pockets. The majority of the hotels are situated along Banff Avenue, just minutes from the Trans Canada Highway.
