    Good value and central location

    by

    The inn is easy to find and recognizable of the photo, we have booked in advance all our accommodations during this trip
    And all I can say they are all worth it for the price!

    Canmore can be seen as a small town in many ways, however they offer two grocery stores, many pharmacies and plenty of little shops that will be able to meet all you needs

    The front desk is open from 7 am - 11 pm but there is 24 hour service if you need anything by just dialling a number
    The hotel is only a short drive from Banff about 20 minutes and aprroximately an hour to Calgary
    We stay for two nights as we are closed to Kananaskis county which is a short drive, this little town is very quite and there are many hotels around but Mountain VIew Inn is the cheapest we've found on the internet they have best off season rates

    The room is very spacious with two queensize bed a table with two chair, cable tv and wifi in the room
    Bath tub and shower nice and clean, carpet floor in the bedroom tile floor in the bathroom
    During check-in they'll prefer you pay credit card, when we arrive our registration form is already prepare and they charge our visa card to the room plus we need to deposit 250 dollar for room key and for the hotel policy which needs to be signed, which mean you are agree with all above they have a very strict policy

    I ask if it' s necessary to deposit an amount for that hotel policy? The girl said yes, during check- out they check the room first if there are no broken or missing then we will get out deposit back

    The inn has no elevator our room is on the second floor, we have no heavy luggage so, is not a problem for us
    There is no coffee maker in the room the coffee is available in the morning down the first floor which is complimentary for the hotel guest
    Iron machine and iron board are present in the room to those who does laundry

    Unique Quality: Very closed to the shopping area, excellent and very spacious room, worth for the price. A very quite little town and a very short drive to Kananaskis county

Travel Tips for Canmore

The Ravens know where the good take aways are

by scottishvisitor

Spotted the Raven in the parking lot in Kananaskis - rooting around in the back of a pick up truck. These birds are highly intellegent & after all the warnings of leaving food - a well for the Raven = Good Drive Thru - for the tourists lucky - not a bear.

Canmore Nordic Centre

by madamx

The Nordic Centre was a venue built for the 1988 Winter Olympics and has over 60 km of world-class cross-country and biathlon trails. If you are an advanced cross-country skier, these trails will be an enjoyable challenge, as they are designed to meet Nordic international competitive standards. There are some novice trials here and in Kananaskis as well (see my Kananaskis page, under sports travel tips).

In the summer, the trails become hiking and mountain biking trails. The most popular is the Goat Creek/Banff Trail, which is 17.5 km, and extends from the parking lot at the Banff Springs Hotel to the Spray Lakes Reservoir in Canmore. Most smart people do one way, having one car in Canmore and one in Banff, as it is downhill from Canmore to Banff.

WHAT BANFF SHOULD BE

by madamx

Canmore's original name was Chuwapchipchiyan Kude, or "The prairie where they shot the little pine" in Stoney Indian.

Since that was too hard to say fast five times, Donald Smith of the Canadian Pacific Railway renamed the area Canmore, after Malcolm Canmore III, who killed Macbeth the upsurper in the fight for the Scottish Throne in 1057.

Canmore's history is well-rooted in coal mining. The first major mine started operating in 1887, and carried on until the 1970's.

It was a quiet, sleepy town, known for more than a gas fill-up than anything else, until the 1990's when developers realized that Canmore had huge potential. The town is growing steadily, especially with development being curbed sharply in the Banff townsite.

Even with all the development, it's still a quaint town, and has that pleasant small-town atmosphere, where you notice when you walk down the street that people know each other.

""We're Blessed to Be in Canmore""

Canmore doesn't offer the excitement or crowds of Banff -- I look to it as a place to relax, maybe have lunch, then spend the afternoon browsing in the shops.

If you aren't into shopping, take in the local park, up at Quarry Lake or drive up the Spray Lakes Trail and take in the breathtaking scenery.

Once you visit, you will agree, that you are indeed blessed to be in Canmore
