"Spend an extra $20 and go elsewhere"
I always book a budget hotel and usually have a great experience. This hotel was dreadful. The hotel doesn't have a reception area/desk - you check in at a kiosk on the ground floor. It looks more like a money exchange booth then a hotel checkin counter. I don't mind outdated hotels but this one just looked dirty everywhere you looked. The room was […] dark and so small it barely fit the queen size bed. The rooms overlook the main strip - descent view but you can hear the bar music/drunk people yelling all night long. Even with the windows closed. During the day you can hear all the buses/horse tours etc. Very noisy. I paid $135 plus tax - I wish I paid an extra $20 and stayed elsewhere. The hotel claims there is free parking - it costs$5. The free parking they offer is the public parking lot which has limited hours. The only good thing was the great staff.

All in all a wonderful Hotel and fabulous stay...the only issue the room was a tad small...but not a problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds are small, uncomfortable. Rooms need to be cleaned better and need to have ac and a larger fridge. Its a very old building.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't understand the other ratings. This hotel was fine, particularly for short stays. The girl on the front desk was extremely helpful, room very clean and comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price. Recommend it."
I havent written a hotel review before but have appreciated others that have taken the time to do so, so would like to offer the same. We had a positive experience at this hotel and would definitely recommend to others looking to stay in Banff at a reasonable price. Good: Quiet, comfortable bed, nice room, fridge in room, friendly staff. Kid friendly […] place, not a ton of partiers. Could use improvement: a little unsafe feeling in that you have to use a key to work the elevator because obviously had issues in the past, stains on carpet in halls, can't park near hotel must use parkade. But do have 15 min loading zone to bring stuff up to room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice location, economical and convenient. Parking was a concern, but with public garage parking only one block away, it turned out to not be a problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
What was an enjoyable stay in Banff was spoiled by one simple transaction. We had to pay a $100 cash bond ( in case of damage) because we used our MasterCard debit card to book our room. This was a first; we had had four previous hotel bookings prior to our arrival in Banff. What made this such a farce was that the cash was refunded the next morning […] without a room inspection! (PS - we are 65 yr old couple) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location and it was acceptable comparing with the price, and parking in other location which was not convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
enjoyed it. Great location and nice hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was great. The location was great, right downtown. The room was small, but very clean, with good air conditioning. No problem with noise at night. Comfortable bed. Very friendly front desk employee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was ok, not the best or worst experience I had. The staff was really gentle and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected, great location"
I haven't read the other reviews, but in my opinion this could be a 2.5 star rather than 2 star, but maybe that is due to amenities. Appears to be renovated not too long ago, aside from the bathroom faucet. Clean. My only complaint is that the cool dry air from the ventilation duct was blowing on us all night. Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My Hotel expirence at The King Edward hotel was good. I found the location and the room great it was a clean and cozy room, everything was neat and clean the bathroom was clean the room was air conditioned and slept well not noisy in the halls the free Wi-Fi was fast too the secure parking garage was a great option the garage is air conditioned also. […] overall i had a good experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"very basic, downtown"
OK for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"an ok place to stay"
okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is right downtown so it was very convenient but not cheap. The rooms were small but clean. Parking was not very convenient as you had to either use the public parkade if you could find a spot or pay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cost-effective and right downtown"
You're obviously not considering this as a substitute for the Banff Springs. But if you want an economical, clean & quiet place to sleep, this is it. The only issue for some would be the need to request an ironing board, which is not in the room. But just ask at check-in. I did stay here instead of the Banff Springs, where my conference was being held. […] The only issue was parking for the day at the Fairmont, which is very steep at $3 per hour. Otherwise, I'm glad I saved my employer over $200 on a single night's stay. I enjoyed my evening walk in the bustle of the tourists in downtown Banff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Yes stay again"
Let's put it this way, from the out side it looks good, in side it's dated ! Location for this hotel is it's best point. Would I stay there again? Yes, it's as clean as the staff can get it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Location was central to everything for walking. Rooms were very clean for an older hotel. Security by using ur room key to operate elevator to floor felt very safe. Only draw back was that there was no parking close to the hotel, for which we give 4/5 for our experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is right downtown Banff, walking distance to all restaurants and shopping. the free parking is in the parkade behind the Hotel, very accessible. Our room was simple and small, it was perfect as we had no plans to spend our time in the room. the price was very reasonable for the location and hotel. They are upgrading it slowly you can see the […] aging, the hallway carpets do need cleaning or repair. The room was very quiet and comfortable. We would stay there again.

"the black plague, no side affects"
I would probably give this hotel closer to a 2.5 as oppose to 2 but it was definitely not deserving of a full 3. The hotel was worth the money, I paid only a few bucks more than the hostel and do feel I got pretty close to what I paid for. I liked the size and location of my room. The hotel is older which is why the cleanliness and condition have ben […] rated low. there were a few holes in the sheets and the hot and cold were backwards on the tub. some minor investment could really make a difference in sprucing this up a little. My biggest deterent was a plaque on the walk with the History of why the hotel was named king edward the third but all it really said about the guy is that he reigned during the black plague, doesnt make you feel too cozy after reading that. Its not five star and it doesnt pretend to be if your looking for a good rate and the only amenity you need is the mountains and convenience of the town this might be a good choice for you.

"Recommended for a budget stay.."
It's a good hotel. You got what you paid probably.... :)Genuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed the hotel and staff. It was loud being on the street at night. Friday night people were lighting off fire works under our window. It was hard to sleep after that. But the hotel itself was nice and staff were friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was very well placed in the centre of town. Staff were pleasant and helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"awesome location downtown"
this was a very nice hotel,great staff,awesome downtown location,nice room,clean,comfortable,nice view,free parking,quite inside the hotel,would stay again for sure !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what we had in mind..."
There were stains all over the floors, the room was very small and dingy, the bed did not seem in good condition and there was a very apparent strange smell to the place. We did not end up staying at the hotel but the girl at the reception desk was very friendly and helpful when we asked for our money back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location, basic accomodation"
Great location, but the parking is awkward underground behind the hotel if you are driving. There is loud music into the night from the bar above the hotel and the rooms are not very sound proof - so not a great choice if you go to bed before midnight. Basic hotel, and basically clean - just not very new.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not the Ritz, but just fine if you are looking for a simple, secure, hostel-like place to sleep in the heart of Banff..Genuine Expedia guest review
"I would stay again"
If your looking for something right in the heart of things the King Edward is the place to stay. I enjoyed that all the best clubs were just across the street, that the coolest places to eat were just around the corner and that the shopping was just next door. The room was clean, the beds were soft. All in all I would come back and recommend the King […] Edward to anyone looking for a good time in the heart of Banff.

"Cheap place to stay"
This is a nice place to stay for a few nights or even a ski vacation. Close to everything, cheap and the staff are great. Only problem may be if you're there on weekends there may be some partiers around (mostly due to the price point). But overall would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price, a nice hotel in an excellent location. The front desk attendant was very nice and helpful. The hotel is a bit on the older side and does not have amenities, which probably brings the price down. The room was nice, bright and clean. The location is unbeatable, it is right in the middle of downtown Banff close to all of the shops and restaurants […] we wanted to go to. Parking is a couple of blocks away, but not far enough to be a huge inconvenience. Would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place needs alot of work done and it's not in a good location and rooms are very small and it's wright by the bars not clean at all I never ended up staying because it was book wrough and dirty and if you want a good hotel and cheep with out door heated pool and hot tub stay at the hidden ridge it was so nice and good for family its in Banff close […] to down town it in tunnel mountain Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great One Night Stay"
This was not the cleanliness place, but in was in the center of Banff and close to everything. If you are staying for one night and you need something cheap, this is perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the traveler on a tight budget or for an over night stay the hotel is an ideal choice. The hotel is ideally situated on Banff avenue close to all the shopping that Banff has to offer. But if you are lookingto stay in style this should be your last choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
VERY OUTDATED,GOOD CENTRAL LOCATION,NO REPRESENTATION AT ALL FROM THE HOTEL.Genuine Expedia guest review
I only wanted a place to sleep. It was convenient to where I wanted to be, a good price, and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Thank you for exceeding customer satisfaction !"
Friendly, courteous and knowledgeable Front desk staff, Very clean room, good location for tourists like us from British Columbia. Close to Greyhound Banff and bustops. So easy to find and would recommend this hotel to all my relatives and friends. Hope to come back again in the near future. Thanks for the accommodation guys !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok For A Night"
It was ok for a night, but I think next time I will spend a little more to get a nicer room at another hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Great Value."
Surprisingly quiet for being in the middle of downtown Banff. Beds were really comfy (lots of extra pillows). Parking for vechicles was in a public parking garage around the back with the option of parking in a secured area for $5 extra. Hallways were a bit noisy but not too bad. We did stay on a weekend afterall! If you're looking for a comfy room […] just to lay your head at night, then this is the hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Just located in downtown area,but parking is too far from the hotel. There is no kettle in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No parking, no lobby, no conditioner in the bathroom, except for the tvs everything is old and ugly. Very good location but noisy at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
great location, bed was rather hard, but you are in walking distance to everything in BanffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A comfortable room in an older hotel. Good location in the heart of Banff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small room, small price. No surprises. Clean cozy"
If you want more I'm sure the The Fairmont Banff Springs has a room for you. For the price it's great! Clean, central location. Limited parking thou! If you want guaranteed parking you'll have to pay $5 extra. Still good. :)))Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room is dirty, the beds are uncomfortable, no iron, the ironing board was broken and they didn't replace it, the hair dryer over heats and stops for 10 minutes after 20 secs of use. And the Worst is that there was a loud noise and vibration in the floor as if there was a huge circulating pump running right next to you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible. Place is a dump"
Its like a small town run down tavernGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Decent room, small, excellent location, great value for what I paid!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were satisfied with the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was the worse hotel we'd ever stayed at - very outdated, small, and dirty. Beds were very old and uncomfortable we couldn't sleep. A/C didn't work. No parking available at the hotel, had to park on the street. Not worth the price I paid for. I don't recommend this hotel for anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
