"Cheap & noisy"
"I have stayed here before but because i booked so far in advance (1 month) they put me in the first room on that floor which was right beside the stair well and party room. All night people were up and down the stairs (they had metal spindles so all we could hear was the footsteps and chiming of metal spindles)."

"Availability of the room is 30 mins late. No fridge, good location, no a/c there's electric fan though. Room was so warm when we came in bec. heater was on on a 28 degrees weather. Clean. Beds smaller than expected. Lack of communication to guests where to find front desk. We had to ask housekeeper and pointed us to the next bldg."

"My stay at driftwood"
"Thank God I had read a few reviews and knew that the sign in desk was actually next door in the sister hotel. The best way to sum it up was that it was nothing special and it did kind of put me off at first, but it was clean and I had no problems with it. There is nothing wrong with it, just nothing special. I would stay here and recomend it if your not too concerned about all the bells and whistles and just looking for a place to stay."

"Not to return......"
"Room turned outt to be "okay" after we called down to the desk to get it cleaned. Garbages were not emptied, bedspreads were just pulled up over the slept in bed, floor unvacuumed. But they were there cleaning immediately after bringing it to their attention...."

"The location was excellent. For banff, it was well priced. It was quiet and the room had the two beds in seperate rooms which was a nice bonus."

"Our road trip out west, its definitely god's country."
"I really liked the location off the Hotel, it was in walking distance of everything in the main part of town. Very close to nature, an Elk came right by our window in the morning. All the restaurants and shops were very close by. A very nice place to stay on our trip out west."

"This is the low-cost sister of the Ptarmigan Inn. You check in at the Ptarmigan and then just walk across the parking lot to the Driftwood. The room was basic but fine (loved the comforter), and the Ptarmigan's staff very pleasant and helpful. Someone responded within about 1 minute when I called down at 6:30 a.m. to tell them my hairdryer didn't work; they brought me a functioning one. The only problem is noise. People out in the hall (or even downstairs) sound like they're in your room. I was awakened several times during the night by people coming and going. They don't even have to be wild and noisy to wake you up--there are just simply no sound barriers in this hotel."
