Canmore Rocky Mountain Inn
Ranked #14 of 28 Hotels in Canmore
Reviewed 19 June 2012

I stayed in the Canmore Rocky Mountain Inn on the June 9th weekend for a Banff wedding, and I was pleasantly surprised at the place. It's not perfect by any means, and they are in the middle of some renovations to there was some mess around, but for $89 a night for 2 queen beds and a fireplace, it's hard to beat that only minutes from the mountains. Clean, pretty quiet (except the air conditioner, very loud unfortunately), and very polite and friendly staff.

Only downside / recommendation is the same concern other reviewers have mentioned, the heat in the rooms. To their credit, the front desk lady informed me at check in that some of the fireplaces have their pilot lights turned off as they heat the room up too much, and ours wasn't one that was turned off. I thought the thermostat would be a modern one that automatically fired up the Air-con if necessary, but it's an older style where you have to manually flick it to Cool before the unit kicks in...something I didn't notice until a few hours in a too-hot-too-sleep room. But, if you fix up the heat situation and crack a window before bed, I'd highly recommend it for a sub $100/night hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side of the building aren't overlooking the breakfast area, so you won't...

My husband liked this hotel more than I did. The room we had was very clean, with microwave and fridge, and it had a fireplace. I found it very quiet but for some reason it was very hot. We turned the heat off and opened the balcony door and window and kept them open all night. For me the bed was really hard and so were the pillows. And I like a quilt not the sheet/blanket that they had. But that's just preference~everything was clean. The lounge area was beautiful with a large open fireplace and leather sofas and armchairs. There was always someone at the desk and coffee/tea available at all times. The breakfast was average with quite a few choices though. The price was great! Our room was $89 (add tax and tourism fee) which included your continental breakfast; it also had a fridge and microwave. The front rooms all had great views but you were on the highway. The back rooms were quiet even though it was facing a parking lot and another hotel. I'd recommend the hotel.

Thank you for your review. We’re sorry you didn’t find your bed and linens to be to your liking. During your next visit please request one of the newly renovated rooms with the newer pillow top mattress and I’m certain we can arrange for you to have a duvet as well. And of course during your next stay you expect the same amenities, comforts and breakfast that you enjoyed.
Warm regards.

Very clean and comfortable hotel. Room had a fridge, microwave and coffee making facility plus its own balcony. Plenty of choice at breakfast We were only booked in for one night but would certainly book here again next time we are in Canmore. Good value for money.

If you're not looking for a luxury hotel, there's no point paying $120 or $150 a night, when you can stay here for $79 a night. We stayed here with our baby on a last-minute weekend getaway, and really had no complaints. Friendly and helpful staff, nice big lobby, big, clean room, comfortable beds, nice shower. We couldn't see the view because of the low cloud cover, but having been to Canmore many times before, I can assure you that rooms on the south side would have a beautiful view.

Breakfast was better than your average continental breakfast. Very little that weren't carbs, though, it could have used a little more protein. Really, though, to get this included in the $79 a night is pretty amazing. There was a highchair in the breakfast room, too, which we really appreciated.

Unless you're wanting something more than a basic hotel, you're not going to find a better value in Canmore or Banff.

Room Tip: South side has a better view.

First time staying here as the Ramada was full for the night. We were put in the Jacuzzi Room (410) and were very amazed when we walked into the room. It is a VERY large room with a walk up jacuzzi at the one end of the room. The rooms in the 400 wing have all been re-done, and as such come with new beds etc. Will definitely use this as another place to stay in Canmore!

Room Tip: Request a room in the 400 wing is possible!

Large, clean room, comfy beds, good shower, great for a few days stay. Very pleasant staff and very good continental breakfast. Lovely lobby area with armchairs.
Decor a little 90s and needs sprucing up in the corridors, however would for sure stay again.

If you're looking for a place to sleep while skiing, definitely pick this hotel! I've stayed at over 10 different hotels in the Canmore/Banff area, and this is by far the best hotel for your money! The rooms are clean, free breakfast is really good, fire place in the lobby area is awesome, the front desk clerks I've dealt with have been incredibly nice and caring.
