We have stayed at the Lodges at Canmore twice. The first time was just OK as the two bedroom unit we had seemed a bit run down. We gave it another shot this summer and will NEVER stay there again.
We booked a two bedroom loft this time. The first thing we noticed was the general lack of maintenance in the halway of the third floor (we were in room 326) - it appeared as if luggage carts had been scraped into the walls and not repaired. We checked out our room and the carpet had numerous stains on it. That was not the worst part though - I thought it smelled like cats (my whole family has cat allergies) and my fear was confirmed when I saw the cat scratching post. We all became allergic and checked out early (we just stayed one night - we did ask to move, but they were fully booked) because of it. Why they would not warn guests of this is beyond me - it's not such a rare allergy that it needn't be mentioned.
To give an idea of how dirty the unit seemed, please see the attached picture of the fan blades - disgusting. Cat hair and dust all stuck to the edges - seriously gross. The wall beside the main floor bathroom had gouges in it that were partially repaired. The deck chairs in the tiny balcony have degraded to the point that the green plastic came off as a chalky substance when you sat on them - we had to put towels down first. No apparent pride of ownership.
I can't believe they can charge over $250 per night there.
When we left early, they were good enough not to assess a penalty and gave us a 15% discount because of the cat thing, but really I'm not happy that I paid anything for that stay.
