“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

We wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Our room was extremely small, didn't have A/C and there was too much traffic noise to open the window. The carpet was worn and stained. The shower was so small you could hardly turn around. Couldn't use the blowdryer in the bathroom, because the only outlet was for a razor only. The reservation said they had cable tv, but you only got about 5 channels. We paid $80 + tax and wouldn't stay there again. They did have a nice community kitchen/dining area, but it wasn't something we needed or wanted to use.

Cheap poorly maintained motel typical of the type of inn keeper. Carpets are stained bathrooms in poor condition. VCR in room with movies available to use in lobby. If your looking to save money it was 97 with tax for the night but next time I will stay in Calgary and drive out for the day or pay 200 at one of the chain hotels in Canmore.

We stayed here near the end of July.You get what you pay for...a room.Ours had 3 queens and a single,and a roll up cot if needed.The shower "screamed" when ran,and the room was dusty and needed a good cleaning.That said,the view was awesome,and we had a nice breakfast right next door at the husky.Would we stay here again..yes..we only sleep in the room,the beds were comfy too.

This motel is more on the budget side but it is a great way to see Banff and Canmore very cheaply and still the view from the motel is amazing. Our room had a kitchenette which was handy. There is also an outside picnic table and gas BBQ

I've written a review here before and now my wife and me have stayed here many times since. We still love it and look foward to each time we make our reservations! We call it "our lil' get a away"! My wife is 44yrs of age and I'm 31...so there's a bit of an age differance and we still love our "bit of heaven" ( I dont think age has anything to do with this motel.....it's all in what you want). We always stay in the same room (#127) it has a kitchenett and a queen sized bed on the north side of the highway. We love the "down to earth" hospitality and love it's million dollar views with a very reasonable price! We are actually going there in a couple days.....and are looking foward to it! This place is GREAT and I would HIGHLY recommend this motel to anyone that is looking to get away from the BIG CITY LIFE and enjoying a "down home" experience (sorry for the southern anologies.....im from Texas). EVERYTIME the room is VERY clean, the people VERY helpful and VERY friendly!

Room Tip: We recommend the "suites"...with a small kitchen (we bring our own food) it's like &qu...

Booked over the phone and the lady upgraded us for free. Friendly and helpful welcome at reception. We had a pet friendly room with a kitchenette, loads of space and two double beds which we were not expecting. Everything was very clean! Little bit of noise from the road but to be expected when situated so close to it. Good stop off place or for few nights, probably wouldn't want to holiday here. Great value for money! Would definitely come back, no complaints.

My fiance and I have stayed at the Big Horn several times, mostly because of it's proximity to Canmore, Banff and Kananaskis, combined with it's inexpensive rates. We stayed there for ~80/night last time we were there (August 2011), compared to the standard ~100/night we've paid at hotels in Banff or Canmore. The accommodations are fairly bare-bones, but it's clean and affordable! If you don't need to be right in town, and just need a place to stay while in the Canmore area, go to the Big Horn Motel in Dead Man's Flats!
