The Drake Inn
Ranked #24 of 31 Canmore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 February 2014

The place was amazing and the best customer service i have received. I was shopping around for a hotel to stay for a night in Canmore and the guest service representative offered a price match to any hotel that i want to stay in Canmore. My time was saved from all the hustle to look for a descent hotel...The moment i went in my room i loved it. The room was so big and view from the room was absolutely superb. Nice mountain view and a pond behind the hotel. The came with a nice balcony, so i was able to take some good pictures of main street from the balcony. The hotel offers nightly entertainment of local bands on weekends which was really a plus for our stay. The only negative thing about the Drake was thin walls. We had hard time to fall asleep for couple hours due to noise coming from next room.

Room Tip: Room 28 you will get a good scenary

We stayed here for a weekend in December. It was a great place. We had a room looking out at the creek and mountains and it was beautiful. We loved the bar - our waiter was awesome and always made sure we had a drink. The local band - Band of Brothers - was awesome. They made the experience even better. We never had a chance to eat at the restaraunt but have heard good things. The rooms are a bit outdated but really didn't matter to us. The beds were great and comfortable. We will definately stay her again.

We stay at the Drake often... no, they aren't the nicest rooms, certainly not fancy, but they are clean and the view is amazing. The kicker for the Drake is their amazing, hospitable, fast and effecient staff. It's seriously like "Cheers"! There food and nightlife are also fantastic.

Room Tip: Creekside... then you get a patio, with an amazing view.

Overpriced. I spent 2 nights there last weekend with a friend while skiiing at Sunshine. I expect way more from any hotel in Canada let alone a town like Canmore. The rooms are VERY outdated. The bathroom door didnt even close, we had to use the bathtub stopper to shut it for privacy. Beds were not comfortable, one of the queen bed was busted and if you sat on the end the other end flew up! Nice views is all I can say about this place...but hey anywhere you pretty much stay in Canmore or Banff is breathtaking.

Visited the pub and took in some live local entertainment while visiting Canmore for the first time. The atmosphere was great; friendly people and great music. Absolutely loved the local band that took the stage later in the evening, Funk and Disorderly. Wow those guys were worth the trip all together! Great tunes and good times!

Good service from the lady at reception. The room was fairly large with a fantastic view looking over the river towards the Mountains. The décor was a bit strange, a bit of this and a bit of that which once we settled in we quite liked. You are not in a chain hotel. Sink and washing facilities in main room not in toilet?, Shower good. The pub had no music on when we where there but food was very good and we had to leave before the entertainment started. Very popular at night we heard. All round, Its was good. Try it out, enjoy.

Room Tip: Riverside/ mountain view.

Stopped overnight in Canmore at a motel just along the street from here and was recommended to try it. Glad we did. Great bar with a mock German band doing some poor renditions of what they thought was German tunes. (it was supposed to be their Octoberfest tribute) Anyway they were fun if not exactly good. The food was great. We shared a BIG bowl of Sweet Potato fries. Very Good. Main was equally as good. Surroundings are great too. Just what a pub should be and the staff were good also. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant if you are in Canmore.
