The hotel is good with a great location for walking around the Main Street with many restaurants, bars, and a great brewery almost next door. Very nice reception with great information on the local area.

Really don't have anything bad to say about the stay. My wife and I stayed for two days. Lovely room, a/c works great! Soaker tub and a lot of channels on the TV. Very friendly staff as well. For the price it is a good place to stay during tourist Season. We would stay again!

Special mention for helpful receptionist who juggled bookings to allow us to stay an extra night without changing rooms. Great stay upstairs in room with one double bed and kitchen. Clean, quiet and convenient for downtown Canmore.

No problem recommending this motel! Dated but super clean and well taken care of. Keurig in room. Pillows plump and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Free parking. Great views from rooms. Walkable to everything. Laundromat on site. No hot tub or pool (bit of a problem if kids come with us next time!)
