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.
