An attractive website, that totally betrays those who trust what is shown...
A management swindling clients
If you book 3 nights by internet, but- ONCE ON SITE - refuse to stay there when you discover a "forest retreat" built on the highway, counts more chalets than pine trees, offers dark and rundown chalets FOR 200 CAN DOLLARS A NIGHT FOR 2 PERSONS, just know that the place will charge you for 3 nights.
Avoid this place at all price!!!
Stay:Rooms are big and spacious,free breakfast is included in the price.Bathrooms feature a jacuzzi.A tub and a hot spa are avaiable,there is also a small gym.Perfect for a good gettaway.When i was there there was a huge staff shortage,however there has been a new GM included since and from what i have heard things are starting to get better.
Work-My job was not exciting at all here.infact it was very lonely.However Steven the GM is one of the nicest guys on the planet and is apleasure to work for.Staff accomodation is without doubt the best i had on all my workplaces.It was big,spacious,with a magnificent balcony and not to far from town.
Pleasent relaxed atmosphere,Free Breakfast,Hot Tub
This is the cheapest accomodation in Canmore(Until the hostel is up and running in 2008).Its also the strangest hotel i have ever stayed in.The rooms arent much,1 bed,a sink,a bedside table.However it is like staying in history as the place is nearly 150 years old and has changed very little over that period.I will talk more about the bar later.firstly if weird people scare you.do not and i repeat DO NOT stay here.I was approached by a woman drunk as a skunk at 10.30am.
Its the oldest building in Canmore...need i say more.Plus the bars just downstairs and you are in the centre of town.
Our room was on the top floor of the Inn, along with that of the Groom's parents and the wedding couple themselves. I think we had the biggest canopy bed of them all, and our grandchildren loved it. The two youngest girls (7 and 5 years) both spent a lot of time in our room playing on it as 'fairy princesses' and tossing the red petals around that they were to use in their official duties as Flower Girls!
Almost all the rooms had jacuzzis in them and a few of the crew even jumped into the big hot tub set up outside the ground floor rooms. The temperatures were about -3 C during our stay and it felt almost tropical after the -22 C (with -35 C windchills) of a few days before!
Our daughter and her fiancee selected the Bear and Bison Inn as a comfortable spot where they could gather just their immediate family members for the small winter wedding they had planned. About 2 months before the wedding, we had booked all ten rooms at the Inn for two nights in order to accommodate the 18 adults and 7 children who would be attending the wedding. Everyone agreed that it was one of the most enjoyable weddings ever, since it seemed just like being in a big house as everyone mixed during the two days of the wedding events. Our room had one of the small gables in this photo while the second photo shows our view to the Three Sisters peaks, across Canmore and the Bow River valley. The final photo shows the outside gazebo where the evening wedding ceremony was actually held (it is also visible at the right side in the main photo).
According to their web site: "the Inn has been designed by the owners Lonny & Fiona Middleton for the discerning guest who enjoys being pampered in comfortable, relaxing and luxurious surroundings. The B&B style hospitality and World Class inn, restaurant, service and amenities are magical ingredients combined to produce an ideal destination for romantic getaways, and honeymoons, intimate elopement weddings, skiing & winter getaways, management retreat, family reunions, and a base to start & finish your week long exploration of the Canadian Rockies Provincial & National Parks. In addition to the Inn being a fantastic base for your vacation we are a 1st Class culinary experience. Our Bed and Breakfast Inn provides unique dining facilities for groups wanting exclusive use for intimate weddings, conferences, activity retreats and family gatherings for up to 24 adults."
We paid C$200 (US$170) per night for each room (including breakfasts and lunch) and another C$500 for the use of the gazebo for the wedding ceremony.
This is an apartment stye vaction rental, so it's more "homey" than a hotel. It enabled us to cook instead of going out. Very cozy with a gas fireplace and a great view of the mountains.
And the location was within walking distance to our New Years party at the Drake!
Never got there, but heard there was a Rooftop Hot Tub...
Certainly great views of the mountains & the golf course - I didn't win the lottery before I came - so sadly didn't stay here.
There are two hotels in Kanananskis village but both are double the price of Canmore.
Save your money & just visit.
I would like to hire a motor home in future travels - this particular park was very central & set beside the scenic Policeman's Creek.
The park has everything you will need - good showers & toilets - if you don't have them in your RV (most do) Close for walking into town if you fancy a meal or a drink & not as remote as the others we saw on our travels.
This hotel offers great rates on rooms with free continental breakfast (DIY) Good comfortable rooms & good public rooms + hot tub.
The service is excellent with friendly staff always willing to help or just have a chat.
Half the price of most hotels in Banff but only 15 minutes away
Situated next to the main road & near the rail track Double glazed window made it perfectly quiet. Nice rooms with TV queen bed couch, table & chairs & nice ensuite.
The hotel has a huge bar & outdoor patio with 2 dining options serving good food.
Mountain High Bed & Breakfast, situated well up on one side of the valley above Canmore, is a very pleasant place to stay. We enjoyed a very comfortable and spacious room, excellent breakfasts, superb views and hosts who were welcoming and helpful.
This accomodation is a little off the beaten path, but for driving maybe an extra 10 minutes through the town of Canmore, you get excellent value for your dollar, and this place is especially perfect if you are travelling with a family.
The Residence Inn is located north of Canmore, near the Spray Lakes Road, so it is in an extremely quiet location. The spacious rooms are sparkling clean with modern, tasteful decor, and there is a kitchen in each room (no oven). Also, make sure that you bring your toiletries, as they only give you a bar of soap and some shampoo in the bathrooms.
A generous free buffet breakfast is included in your room charge. I must admit you may not want to eat it every day -- basically, a free-for-all of people gobbling down cold, rubbery scrambled eggs, cold rubbery sausage patties, and some hapless schmuck overfilling the waffle making machine -- but hey, who wants to turn down free food? Stick to the dry cereals, hot cereals, fruit salad, muffins and juice. There is also an "evening snack" offered from 5 to 6 pm from Monday to Thursday, such as chili, pasta salad, soup, or burritos. We didn't have the pleasure of partaking in the snacks, but I'm sure they would be half-decent -- free food, right? There are also a couple of barbeques you can use, just book with the desk staff.
A unique swimming pool starts indoors and if you duck under the outdoor wall, extends outdoors. The outdoor hot tub is kept deliciously hot at 40C, and had a small, hot waterfall, which made up for the lack of jet power. The Inn also has a small workout room has a couple of exercise bikes and some free weights.
The staff are friendly and professional, and I must give them credit for valiantly trying to keep up with the hoardes at breakfast stuffing their faces, yours truly included. All, in all, the place offers HUGE bang for your buck, especially in off-season, and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
The Four Points Sheraton is located in Canmore, a town 15 minutes from Banff, and 5 minutes from the park gates. This hotel is ideally situated on an access road off the main highway, and AWAY from the railroad tracks. Tip: When booking a hotel room in Canmore, make sure you are away from the railroad tracks, which run adjacent to the Trans Canada, unless you are an extremely sound sleeper.
It has nicely decorated rooms, albeit a bit stuffy; however, the saving grace is air-conditioning. It can still get very hot in the National Park, and air conditioning can come in very handy on some days. We stayed in a King Suite, which has a small living area, large bathroom, and separate bedroom. There is a television in each area, which is handy if you can't agree on what to watch! There is also a large bar fridge and small microwave in a well-planned kitchen area. They also provide dishes and cutlery, and guess what? You don't have to do dishes; just leave them for the housekeeping staff.
There is an eight-person hot tub at the hotel, and a small workout room as well.
Renzo's, the hotel dining room, actually serves good food at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only negative thing I could say was the room was very warm (we were told that there was a "problem" with the heat), and there is only a tiny window to open for fresh air.
Big Plus: a mountain view from every room.
Beautiful 4 1/2 star accommodations. We stayed in the Loft Honeymoon Suite (pictured here from their website) complete with gas fireplace, a slate-tiled bathroom with double jacuzzi tub and separate shower . A generous basket of full-sized local handmade bath products were included. There is also a beverage station and fridge in your room. Luxurious, comfortable beds. You are given a voucher for breakfast at a local high-end restaurant called Chez Francois and therefore you have a wide variety of choices every day, and also eat when you want to. Chocolates on the pillows too.
Very private for a B and B and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Lounge on the main floor if you feel like socializing.
