“Affordable Stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We were greeted by a very friendly fellow at check in. He provided us with a map circling the hotels location. The room/bathroom were clean smaller in size for the four in our family but we managed just fine. Close to the downtown area. No coffee in the room but there is a nice coffee area just off the lobby with a few tables to sit at. The hotel is 2 floors with a wide staircase to access the second floor. We had a comfortable noise free night. Ice machine and a vending machine are also just off the lobby. Lots of information pamphlets available in the lobby.

Room Tip: If you need an elevator ask for a first floor room.

This place is not the Taj Mahal, but for the cheap price, clean rooms I'll definitely would come back. I would say it's on-par with the Super8, but a bit better. Don't expect a world class atmosphere, just a place to lay you're head at the end of a long day in the mountains!

Pros:
- Location

Cons:
- They make you pay a $100 deposit PER room key which they don't tell you until you check in. If you want 2 keys, it's a $200 deposit
- There is a 2 inch gap at the bottom of the door so you can hear EVERYTHING that happens in the hallway, kids running up and down the halls, people coming in at 1 am, whatever passes by you can hear it. Also, because of that gap, the room doesn't get dark. We had to put a rolled up towel on the floor to muffle the sound and block the light.
- No fridge in the room, or on the premises at all. We had a few things we needed to keep cool, and normally we found if there's no fridge/freezer in the room, there is at least one somewhere on the premises where we are able to store it. There was nothing.
- No microwave in room or anywhere in the hotel. It's understandable to not want people to cook in the room, but at least make something available to people in the lobby or a common area - especially since there is no breakfast offered.
- No breakfast.
- Absolutely NO electrical outlets in the room. Literally there was only one and that was in the bathroom for an electric razer.
- Small little TV from the 1990s
- Nothing to put your luggage on in the room, we had to keep our suitcases on the floor. No tables or luggage racks
- We were on the 2nd floor and there was no elevator. It's unpleasant to carry a heavy cooler and 2 suitcases up 2 flights of stairs and then down a long hallway.

I am driving behind my daughter as she is cycling for mental health awareness and suicide prevention from Vancouver to Hamilton. When we arrived at this hotel, I noticed a sign posted on the door that bikes are not allowed in the building. We explained the situation and said that she cannot afford to leave her bikes outside (1 being her main bike to do the charity ride and the other her late father's bike) Under no circumstances whatsoever would they allow us to carry the bikes to our room and claimed to have no storage. The receptionist, a young Australian lady was delightful as she tried unsuccessfully to find us another hotel. Everything else is awful from the noise in the hotel and from the street, the $100 per key room deposit, to the lack of fridge, to the lack of compassion.

This was a very basic, affordable hotel which was good enough for a one/ two night stay. The things that bothered me the most were that there was no coffee machine/ coffee in the room and no refrigerator. We spent one night there on the way to Jasper National Park, and one night coming back. It was very hot the first night, and our AC was not working in the room. Since the hotel was totally booked we could not move into another room. The lady at the reception gave us 25% off the cost and supplied us with a table top fan.
If you're looking for low-cost in an expensive town, the Mountain View hotel is not bad. We would stay there again.

We stayed here two nights while exploring the Canmore/Banff area. The price was reasonable and the location is very good. The hotel itself is, as many reviewers have said, pretty basic. Our room was clean, and reasonably comfortable. The rooms are not large but ok for a couple of nights stay. There is no fridge or microwave in the room. The beds were on the firm side but we slept ok so can't really complain.There is no maid service but we were only there two nights so no big deal. There is free wifi which worked fine. The desk staff were friendly and helpful. If you're looking for luxury stay elsewhere, but if you just need a bed for a night or two then this is as good a place as any.

Room Tip: We had as second floor room near the end of the hall. Probably a good idea since sounds carry into t...

1. The hallway and the room smell like food.
2. Damp carpet.
3. Dirty bed with uneven bed sheet.

4. Bad customer service! And rude!!!
5. The broken bed lamp.
6. The sticky table in the room.

Even for $99, it wasn't worth your money to stay in this kind of place. I didn't expect luxury, but dirty room is unacceptable!
