Close to downtown action

Pros: Could walk downtown to food and entertainment.
Cons: Updated facilities--modernize. Needs new queen size, firm mattresses.
Location: Located on a busy, noisy street. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance.
Our room was near busy, noisy Railway Ave. it was close to downtown shops, restaurants and night life. Night life could be heard from our room up to 2 a.m. Room was clean, but remodeling was pretty old fashioned. Not updated facilities. The restaurant didn't open until 8 a.m. For breakfast--after we hit the road.

Nice hotel close to attractions

Pros: Location, Canmore is a quaint town close to Banff and Lake Louise
Cons: Possibly some updating at the hotel.
Location: Restaurants, Rocky Mountains, Lake Louise, Banff, shopping, animal watching, the elk in the golf course area were incredible.
We stayed here 3 nights and were able to enjoy Banff and Lake Louise. It was also close enough for us to drive to glaciers and the skywalk, note that the drive was probably close to 2 hours but a beautiful drive with stops for photos.

Nice stay in Canmore

Hotel is in a great location in downtown Canmore. The room on the second floor had nice view of the mountains and stream. Room was kept clean, bed was a bit uncomfortable, staff were courteous and helpful.
