We stayed last week since a snow storm had made it difficult to drive on HWY 1.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The fireplace is a nice touch, and the room even had makeup remover! My girls loved the pool and waterslide. I do wish they had lifejakets, but we went down the road and got then at Canadian Tire. Great to be able to have the dogs! In the morning the breakfast was great, lots of choice! Will be back soon!

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel on our first trip to Alberta from Ontario. The rooms are clean and well appointed and modern. Even though there is a train track nearby (as with most Alberta hotels), the walls and windows are well insulated and we experienced no disturbance at all - and I'm a light sleeper! The staff was friendly and the lobby very inviting with free fresh cookies daily. Breakfast was included with our stay and offered a nice variety of both cold and hot meals in a sunny room with a view of the 'Three Sisters' mountains. The pool was a terrific place for our 3 kids to play and the waterslide was a big hit. The tourist information building is not far away and Canmore has an excellent skateboard park, picuresque village and farmer's market. It was an easy drive from this hotel to travel to Banff, Sulphur Mountain, Johnson's Canyon, and north to Lake Louise - a perfect central starting point for these day trips. There were no problems at check-out and we would definitely stay there again if we ever make it back to beautiful Alberta.

Room Tip: I got a better rate by booking online and using my CAA discount.

Spent a night here in January - can't wait to return!! The rooms are beautifully appointed - great amenities and comfortable beds with a warm, cozy feeling! They are spacious rooms with large washrooms, lots of space and offer a fridge/microwave and fireplace. It is a wonderful place to bring a family. My son and spouse enjoyed the glass enclosed pool/waterslide & hot tub, while I relaxed in front of the large fireplace in the lobby. The hotel itself has a very inviting atmosphere, there was complimentary hot chocolate and cookies in the evening and the 'continental' breakfast went above and beyond what you typically find with a large selection of hot items and fresh fruit salad. This is our second time staying and I cannot wait to go back. It has without a doubt become our favourite hotel in Canmore!!

Room Tip: higher floors offer better mountain views - some rooms have balconies

We spent a one night getaway in early January. Because we brought our small dog with us, we were put on the ground floor. Our room was a "walk-out" room with a French door leading out to a small patio. From there, we could hop over a small stone wall and take our dog out to the dog walk area and avoid taking him through the hallways. Brilliant. The room itself was quite large, more than enough room for the 5 of us and included a microwave and small fridge. Even though we faced Highway 1, we seldom heard any of the traffic.

Our kids loved the waterslide while we hung out in the large hot tub. We also discovered a game room with tv's, fooseball and table tennis. Just ask at the front desk for paddles, balls etc. There was also a sauna, steam room and fitness room. Cookies and hot chocolate were available in the lobby and the hotel is just a couple of minutes walk to Tim Hortons.

Morning breakfast had more than enough variety. Make your own Sausage & Eggers, cereals, toast, bagels, pastries, fruit, yogourt, eggs, etc.

Our only minor irritant was that fireplace in the room didn't work. We didn't discover it until it was late in the evening and didn't bother to call maintenance. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: Pet friendly rooms on ground floor.

I had surgery in Canmore and we chose this hotel over others because it was just down the road from the hospital, on the quieter side of the road and a previous review spoke of the great breakfast. It was a beautiful, spacious room, with nice gas fireplace and mountain views. The staff gave us a room on the first floor for easier access due to reduced mobility post-op. It was so quiet, I was able to rest comfortably. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was awesome - eggs, fruit, yogurt, cereals, toast, etc. - way better than any other continental breakfast we've had elsewhere. The rates were very good also ($107/night), might have been off season rate (?). We got better rate by calling hotel directly than using a third party site. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Call hotel direct rather than use third party site. They can give you a better rate.
