We rented the suite with 2 queen beds and a pullout couch and it was perfect for us. Very clean and spacious with a fridge, microwave and small keurug coffe maker with teas and coffee. Room was quiet even though the hotel was full. Great nights rest for all 5 of us. The pool was great for the kids, aged 10, 10, 11 & 12. And myself. The hot tub was also very nice and all was clean. The towels run out quickly but if you go speak to the people at the front desk they will replenish quickly and bring them to the pool. Excellent, friendly staff at the front desk. Very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was open and it was quite busy as the hotel was full. Everything was replenished quickly and the staff worked very hard to keep up on things. If you asked for something that was out the staff diligently worked to replenish. We found a table each morning and the food was very good. Lots of variety and we all left full. I was very happy with everything at this hotel and would definitely stay there again. We have stayed at the Best Western Port o Call previously and I preferred this hotel for price and amenities.

I stayed here for 3 nights last month for a business visit as the location was close to my work location. The room was basic and clean, however, the wash basin in the room needed cleaning. Breakfast was given in paper bags and was very 'sad' to say the least. Needless to say, I picked it up only once during my 3 day stay. Skipthedishes was my saviour during the stay. There were no water bottles in the room. Overall, a lot of room to improve, but no major complaints.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel even though there is some improvement needed at the reception. I had issue with only one person who checked me in. They forget they are in the hospitality business and don't try harder to meet the customers needs. In the end, Danielle stepped in and resolved the issue to my satisfaction. Overall, I would recommend this Banff Trail location. Very clean and comfortable rooms.

Disappointing stay. room itself was comfortable enough. However lots of other things made it not great: the hotel did not have any extra blankets available. They never had fresh pool towels. The breakfast was abysmal-Instant oatmeal, a rotten orange, and a granola bar.

Room was bright, nice sitting area, kitchen area with sink, and fridge and coffee pot. Everything was clean and shower was spacious. Super comfy bed. Construction made it hard to get in to hotel and parking was limited but a standard half ton did fit in parkade. I liked that you needed a room key to access elevator to rooms. Wishing this was a longer stay and would definitely go back. We did not do breakfast due to another commitment and did not use the pool but it looked more than adequate with slide and hot tub..
