A clean, comfortable room with a kitchenette at a reasonable price for the area. Very friendly, helpful management. Totally out of the mainstream of the big chain hotels. We stayed 3 nights and it was great. The only issue is parking - if you can find a spot you are quite likely to get door dings. The spots are exceedingly...

My wife and I stayed here one night on our way to Banff. We spoke with the owner and got their last room. It is an older motel at the end of the main road, but is very well kept and updated. Our room had a spot for our car right out front. The room was big and the beds...

Check in was provided by welcoming and informative staff who offered ideas about walks etc and even offered the loan of bear spray for a safe trip. The room itself was very spacious consisting of a living area equipped with tv and lounge chairs plus a fold down double bed, a kitchenette again well equipped, a bathroom and a separate...

The staff were so friendly - they really went out of their way to help and recommended us great places to eat. We had a beautiful view of the mountains and the room was very clean. Canmore is a lovely town with lots of restaurants, little shops and trails nearby. Only downside is that they don't do breakfast, but there...

這是一間很不錯的motel, 簡潔而乾淨,服務人員很友好,我們抵達的時候有兩間客房讓我選,一間在三樓 有美好的風景,周圍一開窗就能看到三姐妹山,後來選了另一間 因為房間裡有爐子更方便於我煮水沖泡奶粉。We stayed at this motel for night staying so we didn't choose the rooms with views. The room at main floor had all the amenities such as stove, fridge, microwave, dining table and chairs. The motel staff was really friendly. The room was nice and clean. I have a little one and the portable playpen was available...

I stayed here with my spouse and daughter for several days. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here. It is well-priced compared to other lodging in the near vicinity. The motel is very centrally located and within easy walking distance of many wonderful restaurants and places to walk. There is a school bus across the street that sells ice cream,...

The perfect place tasty in Canmore. Easy to walk anywhere around town and easy access to Banff and Lake Louise areas. Very helpful staff who always were ready to answer any questions you may have. Tubs big enough to soak in after a day of hiking. We would would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is good with a great location for walking around the Main Street with many restaurants, bars, and a great brewery almost next door. Very nice reception with great information on the local area.

Really don't have anything bad to say about the stay. My wife and I stayed for two days. Lovely room, a/c works great! Soaker tub and a lot of channels on the TV. Very friendly staff as well. For the price it is a good place to stay during tourist Season. We would stay again!
