Firstly, if you are a seasoned world traveller and familiar with the big name hotels, then as you walk in, this hotel may come as a little shock! This is not actually a Ramada hotel, but rather is licensed under Ramada Hotels International but completely owned by a different company. A bit of a con if you ask me and in no way does it represent a Ramada hotel that any European traveller would expect! That said, I had seen the pictures on-line so I wasn't expecting a palace! One thing you have to bear in mind if travelling through the Rockies for the first time, is that the majority of hotels you will find suffer from a lack of care and attention and the decor will most probably be a cross between a 70s Hollywood movie Motel and a swiss mountain chalet covered in cheap pine.
That said, no matter how much I tried to pick fault with this hotel, I struggled to come up with anything apart from the general state of it and decor. For peak tourist time, this hotel was a reasonable price, was clean and comfortable and offered a cheap and good buffet breakfast. I would suggest staying in Canmore rather than paying more the same in Banff. I would stay here again, if travelling through, but don't expect anything special. There is a railroad located outside rooms on the back, which you could probably high-five the driver of the train if you have long arms, but this shouldn't affect your night's sleep. I found it quite a novelty!
