My friend and I stayed here for my birthday this past weekend and the King Edward was great! The rooms were a little small but to be honest we didn't need any more space because we were out walking around Banff for the most part. The location was amazing, right on the main strip and walking distance to all the shops and places to eat. The staff were […] also very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others that are looking for a cheaper place to stay that's located in the city centre. Clean rooms, we had a mini fridge and bathrooms were good...forgot my hair dryer but they had one in the room as well. Thanks for a great stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best value in Banff"
Great value right in the middle of Banff. Well below the price of anywhere else, and having paid double for a room in Jasper the night before I was more than happy with this hotel. Granted it wasn't the biggest or fanciest I've stayed in but if you are looking for a clean, centrally located place to stay at a more than reasonable price, this is the […] best in Banff.

Hotel was comfortable and clean, the staff friendly, but rooms are very small with poor lighting, also only one chair in the roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night only"
The hotel is right above a very noisy bar so you could hear people yelling and partying all night. The parking structure is a block away so you get to carry your luggage back and forth. The bed was very uncomfortable, the floor was stained and dirty/nasty looking. Definitely wouldn't stay ther again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Arrived and Left - stuck paying for the room."
Once I arrived and checked into my room, I was horrified. It seems my room had been stuck in time since 1982. The room was very shabby and not at all up to date. I couldn't tell if it was dirty or just old and worn out. My guess a combination of both. I pulled back to top cover to check out the sheets on my bed. The first thing I saw was some kind of […] goo (greenish white in color) on the blanket. That did it for me. I just left and found another hotel. If you are looking for a true budget stay, this is it, but I would say it's not worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"smallest, most uncomfortable room ever"
Although the staff was very helpful, the room itself was miniature for the cost, the bed was hard as rock, a VERY small "queen" and ancient (at least 15 years old)!! In a place that was so beautiful, the room seemed totally out of step with the atmosphere of Banff. It was extremely hot without A/C! We were NOT impressed with the facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Free wifi, good place to stay for people under 30."
Good for people under 30...backpackers and travelers looking for a cheap place to stay...and that's about it...Genuine Expedia guest review
"If you need a bed and a shower, this one will do"
Don't expect much from this hotel, but if all you need is a bed and a shower (that was my case), King Edward will do. If you're looking for a romantic getaway, spend your money elsewhere. Free wireless internet was pretty fast. Free parking garage is right behind the hotel. Since the hotel sits right on the central street of Banff, you'll be able to […] crawl back to your room even if you're an Irish celebrating St. Paddy's day in this small tourist village.

The hotel is in a good location right on Banff Ave in the heart of Banff. The bad thing about that is it was a little noisy - my window overlooked the main street and I heard the partiers at 2am. The queen bed had a big dip in it and the springs poked my back. The TV was small and the picture a little too blue. Also, there is no onsite parking, although […] there is parking close by. However, it was the most inexpensive place to stay in Banff so it did the trick for the one night there by myself. And it was clean which is very important to me. I would recommend this place to budget travellers or people wanting to be close to the action, but if you want a bit more luxury, there are better options out there.

Having recently stayed in this hotel, we both suffered from itching and bites from what we believe to be bed bugs.. Our bed had what looked like broken base holders, so our nights sleep was on a very unstable and slanted bed. We are very unsatisfied with this destinationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beware: Bed Bugs"
We read on Expedia the most recent review for this hotel regarding the guests having bites after staying here. We figured one bad review concerning this out of all of the good ones, we would take our chances. This was a mistake as on the third night we woke with bites on our hands. When I went to speak with the front desk there was another guest checking […] out for the same reason. If it wasn't for this the hotel would have been a great deal but this is obviously an ongoing problem that needs to be taken care of and I would not recommend staying here.

"Convienient and economical"
Very cost effective and right in the middle of the village. Was there only for a night and it was quite nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay in"
This is a nice place if you are not planning to stay in the hotel for very long. It doesnt have its own parking. Although there is a free parking behind this motel. It was a bit tough for us to find this motel (maybe because it was 2.30 am and we were freezing to death). The entrance is on the intersection. If you come in after hours you might have […] to ring the owner twice or thrice before he picks up the fone and another 10-15 minutes before he arrives. Very close to the visitor center and in the heart of the small downtown of Banff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"So so itchy"
Don't know what was in the room but all 3 of us got bitten up!! We are all still itchy 2 days laterGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel for what you pay, compared to lots of other hotels in Banff. Room was clean but not spacious though really your in Banff so are you really going to hang out in your room. I'll stay again next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but not much else"
We stayed at the King George hotel for one night in Banff. (Thursday night). The rooms were average at best - sparse finishings (two beds one desk and one chair) no closets - it was dark and dingy. Beds had bed-bug protectors - which did not help put my mind at ease. The rooms we were given faced banff ave - and the rooms had horrible sound proofing. […] Needless to say - we didnt sleep much. Constantly woken up by the sound of buses (bus stop below the hotel) and drunk people walking around! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Huge bang for the buck"
Great location. Staff was absolutely wonderful. Assisted me with my luggage and were very friendly and helpful. The cost of the room was more than reasonable and although the room is basic it was very clean and comfortable and had all that I needed and the location was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and price!"
For the money it was definitely worth it! Not a family hotel but great for singles or friends on a budget. Great location and easy to find!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Heart Of Banff"
Amazing Location Right On Banff Ave And I Could Watch TV From The Toliet, Which Was Key As It Was Playoffs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"heart of down town"
rooms clean, warm and quiet in heart of downtown, which is why this hotel works with no other servicesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, nothing fancy"
A little run down and rough around the edges. The location is the selling point.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what was advertised"
This is not a place to recommend, dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located right downtown banff"
Great location and a cheap hotel for travellers, and anyone looking for a roof over their heads for the night. Provides the necessities and nothing more.Genuine Expedia guest review
If it is just to spend the night right in downtown Banff then it's fine. No breakfast or pool. Very retro. Still uses old fashioned keys. Overall ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No heat in the room - important in the mountains."
Woke up at 3 in the morning freezing cold - there wasn't any heat in my room. Front desk guy was nice enough to bring up a heater, and super quick. The hotel is good otherwise - close to everything downtown, not terribly priced if they could include the heat next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is located right in the middle of all the shops and restaurants in Banff. Can't beat the location. Sacrifice comfort for the price. Also, noise might be a factor for some. You could easily hear your neighbours even with door closed and tv on. Washrooms need updating, coffee in room was terrible. No microwave in rooms. There's one microwave […] at the end of hall. Not convenient. Bed was decent but had hard edges. Blanket and linens were the cheap thin kind. But location was the big plus. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location is the greatest. Access to everywhere within Banff pretty quick. And convenient!! Room was clean but a lot of static electricity on blankets. Staff were kind and nice but too noisy housekeepers early morning. The room was cold even though we adjusted thermostat on the wall to the highest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Must go for this price....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Checked in, slept, left. No problem. Having to park so far away from the hotel was a bit annoying but it could be worseGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap hotel in banff"
All I wanted was a cheap hotel in banff... just a bed... I was happy with the hotel, and it's locationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean on a budget."
You don't go to Banff to hang out in your room, so the King Edward is ideal. Located right downtown. Rooms are old, but clean and the TV worked fine. Great for singles or couples on a budget.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okay hotel, great location"
This hotel is right on Banff Ave which is great. No complaints about the hotel but no real accolades either. Very basic accommodations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In the heart of Banff."
The room was neat, clean and comfortable. If luxury is what you are after this might not be the place for you. However for an inexpensive place to stay, the King Edward can't be beat. There is free 12 hour parking in a parkade behind the hotel (a short 2 minute walk from the hotel) and a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. I'd stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at this hotel with the family, 2 adults and three youth for one night.....great location, family room located at the back of the hotel, nice and quiet, room was comfortable re lay out, beds were OK not too great, staff very friendly, indoor heated parking for 5 Cad a Plus!

"Great hotel right in the middle of downtown Banff"
When we first walked in, the staff were there to greet us right away and were very helpful with describing the parking - we decided to pay the extra 5$/night for the heated underground parking which was definitely worth it! We parked right outside the hotel and unloaded all of our stuff (snowboards, etc.), and took the secured elevator up to the third […] floor to our room. It was a perfect size for 2 people, with a decent sized, clean bathroom and one queen bed. We had a flat screen TV with a fair amount of channels - all we wanted to watch was the Olympics occasionally anyways, we were there to adventure, not sit in a hotel room! The mini fridge was great to have, and there was plenty of room for suitcases and snowboarding gear. The room was clean, as was the bed. It was great to be able to open up the window and get fresh air. Being downtown, we heard a lot of noise during the night due to the Dancing Sasquatch bar being right across the street, but with some earplugs it was bearable. We ended up out most nights anyways, and were normally tired after full days in the mountains so we crashed pretty easily! Being right downtown, there were plenty of shops and great restaurants all around us. Every time we entered or left the hotel, the front staff were always smiling at us and asking us about our days. I would definitely stay here again! Our trip was amazing, and the hotel and staff were great. Definitely would recommend! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Simple and clean!"
Not a fancy place but perfectly situated in downtown banff! The room was cozy and clean, nothing special but served it's purpose. I will for sure stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Low cost, but can be noisy"
Stayed 2 nights (a Sunday and Monday night). Sound proofing between rooms is decent, but not as much as other hotels. Was woken up the first night at 2am by a large group of drunks who were able to be heard through 2 floors and closed doors. An hour later they were talked to by hotel staff and remained quiet. Second night had no late night noise. Room […] cleanliness was pretty good, though comforter did not smell as though it had been washed recently had a few holes from cigarette burns (which has been mentioned in previous reviews). Shampoo provided in dispenser lathered worse than a cheap bar of soap, so bringing your own is recommended. Ultimately getting what you pay for; a very cheap stay with an amazing location. Bring ear-plugs and you'll be A-OK! Parking is a FREE parkade behind hotel with 5 hour and 12 hour spaces. This wasn't an issue for my stay as girlfriend and I were out and about on trips during the day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Service, Hotel needs an update"
Front desk guy was super, answered all my calls, helpful information. Hotel itself is more like a motel/hostel. Good price for what it offers. Location is probably the best thing going for this place, right in the centre of Banff. Also close to the public and FREE Parkade. Only suggestion would be to update the place and get new mattresses cause ours […] was very uncomfortable. Probably won't stay here next time, I'd pay a little extra for an actual hotel.

Great customer service and location! Unfortunately, the thermostat in the room did nothing to moderate the temperatures . Bed was also not very comfy but that could have been a lack of sleep from the changes in temperature...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Got a really good price for the hotel however you get what you pay for. Everything was clean but not so much new. Does it's job as a hotel but not overly aesthetically pleasing or roomy, however the staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

Only stayed for 1 night, but no issues. Free parking is nice, and the hotel is located right in the middle of the strip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room too hot even with thermostat turned as low as it could go. Bed and pillows were too soft.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient location!"
Spent about 70 dollars all together online and the hotel was very easy to find, very clean and well put together...great affordable price. We thought the room was a steal with a great location and gift shops & small mall in walking distance. We would highly recommend if on a tight budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
