“Lovely experience, especially for the kids”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We started here in July 2013. The hotel is a 10-15 minute drive from Banff, but was half price to similar places in Banff itself. As we are a large family, this was important for us...

The hotel is in good condition, and the kids really loved it, both the breakfast and the pool with water slides and all.

Highly recommended.

We had asked for a quiet room and were given a corner room on the third floor. We found the room very quiet at night. The only interference was that the shower in the next room was so loud that my travel-mate wondered aloud if they had a jetted tub (they did not). Since they had a number of showers beginning at 7am this meant no sleep past that time for us.
The pool was fairly basic but also had a steam room which was a nice addition. The breakfast was excellent!! Better than the breakfast in other Best Westerns I stayed in recently providing a very nice assortment of items both hot and cold.
And what can you say about Keurig coffee in the room except for YAY!

I stayed here with my daughter for a 'girls weekend'. Rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable. Only things I would say are the pool area could use a bit of a cleaning and the doors tend to let in quite a bit of sound. I would stay here again but would ask for a room farther from the tracks. Staff was awesome. On the way to Canmore we were rear ended and were left with no vehicle. They let us check in about 4 hours early so we didn't have to carry our luggage around a d could relax after a very trying morning.

I didn't expect much from a small Best Western, but I was very pleasantly surprised by my stay here.
I was there as part of a larger group and the entire stay was quite nice! The lobby is lovely - and there are cookies and coffee :) Check-in was a breeze, as was checking out. I loved the breakfast that was included and the room was great.
And the VIEWS - breathtaking.
I'd recommend this hotel for someone who wanted a non-luxury, but nice, hotel stay in Canmore.

Room Tip: As always, book away from the elevators for a quiet room.

This Hotel is clean and has nice pool for children. It is located next to the highway but the windows are so good that it blocks out most of the noise. We stayed in a 2bd 2 bath condo for about the same price, located in a ski resort so for me this property is overpriced. I would not stay at this hotel again at that price although it is a clean and comfortable place.

Room Tip: Pick a room opposite side of highway and ask for room with balcony, assuming it is no extra cost.

Stayed here for 3 nights in early August. Found the room to clean and quiet. Room had a mini fridge, microwave and private balcony. Included free wifi, parking and breakfast every morning starting at 7am. Has a pool and waterslide.

Elevator was slow and for the most part used the stairs.

Only issue I had is staff seemed not to care much about the customers.
