Canmore is a delightful town set in stunning scenery, with plenty to do and see, and this motel, conveniently located in Main Street close to shops and eating places, represents excellent value for money. Overlooking a small creek with wildfowl and with the mountains as a backdrop it couldn't be better located.
It is not 5-star luxury but it is kept very clean and the daily maid service was excellent. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. We stayed for a week in a room with a kitchenette, but also had some of our party in a standard room. In both rooms it was clear that updating of furnishings and fittings was taking place - some items were new, others needed replacing, but the overall impression was good, especially considering the very good rates. The rooms were warm and cosy, and the beds very comfortable. The only small negative was that there was rather a mixed assortment of crockery/cutlery/glassware in the kitchenette and the pots/pans left a bit to be desired! We would agree with another reviewer that for a long stay the space to hang clothes is a bit limited.
It was mostly very quiet throughout our stay (even being on Main Street there was no road noise) but the downside of this type of building is that noise from other rooms does travel very badly. On the occasions when there were other guests above us we heard every chair scrape, every word spoken and every toilet activity!! However there's not much that the owner could do about this.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and hope to return in the future.Thanks to all at Bow Valley Motel.
