Not the cleanest place I've set foot in, but it was ok. Beds were ok. The location is great, only a few blocks away from downtown. Overall I would recommend if you want a cheap place to stay in Banff. But there are some cheaper places in Canmore only a few minutes away from Banff if you seek comfort and...

Was happy with booking this motel. Was very affordable and well located for a standard no frills motel. Front desk were friendly and knew their stuff. King bed was awesome, and room had everything that a standard room needs. Ended up booking two additional nights so must say something :-) Would reccommend!

This hotel is within a few blocks of the downtown area. You can park your car and then walk to the downtown area for good shopping. Restaurants are also within a few blocks of the hotel. The hotel has a hot tub and you can swim in the hotel beside this one.

We stayed three nights in a standard room with comfy King bed at the Red Carpet Inn. The room was fairly nice offering a wooden console housing a cabinet closet with safe, 3 deep drawers for clothes, the TV and two open storage shelves, see photos. It included a small frig., coffee maker, window AC unit, two night stands, two...

I was at the hotel while on business in Banff. I wanted a cheap rate as I was getting in late and just wanted a bed for several hours. Check-in was quick and easy. I had a good sleep and then hopped in the hot tub for awhile in the morning. It was a nice hot tub. Nothing spectacular about...

The Red Carpet location is good and close to many restaurants and stores. We were disappointed that the special room we requested with a Jacuzzi was not working. The glass shower was very small and no where to hang towels. Carpet was old and a little dirty. I don't think we would stay here again.

It's very nice. I've seen some terrible commentaries about this place but I've enjoyed very much. It would be nicer if I could lock the bathroom from the inside. The bed is very good, there's a mini fridge, a good TV, coffee maker. Anyway, is certainly recommend.

We have stayed at the Red Carpet Inn before, but not since Mr. Irwin passed away and it seems to have gone downhill, which is very sad. It used to be such a nice hotel, but it needs a lot of TLC and the floors in the hall and our room were very sloped/slanted which is not the way they...

This hotel was just ok for us, we just returned after spending the long weekend there and I find that it was WAY overpriced for what you get. When we arrived we were told that they were short housecleaning staff and that our room wouldn't be ready until 4 pm so we were left with lots of time to kill...

TBH - we were looking at the place next door (no reservations - just playing it by ear...) They were full and suggested Red Carpet Inn as they were pet friendly, too. We were SO pleased! The staff was great - the room was very clean and we got a room at the end of the hall next to the...
