The place is good for low budget travelers and last minute place to sleep. Nice mountain view and close to the highway. Only five minutes drive to Canmore... The room size was ok and the heat in our room was working, but making funny sound. For the price and basic things it offered i find it to be ok. The... More

We stayed one night on the way through, arriving late. The beds were clean, the showers were hot, and that's all we really asked for at $80 per night with three kids in tow. There was a fold out couch, but there was no sheets on it, nor any in the room for it. The heater was a bit crabby,... More

This place is consistently 30-50% less per night than any hotels in Canmore. Good place for families or groups looking for budget accommodations and just 5 minutes to Canmore. Rooms are small but clean, kitchen facilities available.

Right on Highway 1, so lots of traffic noise, but the view is lovely. Sheets stained, but clean. Coffee maker in room didn't work. Room and bathroom clean; housekeeping a bit erratic -- had to ask for clean towels. $490.50 for 4 nights -- a bit expensive for very basic accommodation.

First, let me state the obvious. This isn't a luxury resort. Anyone expecting more for this kind of a price range is, quite frankly, a fool. This is a very basic older motel with few amenities but in a great location for a fantastic price. It is perfectly safe. Anyone who finds this or any hotel in the Banff/Canmore area... More

Small room, smells from cooking nearby. Did not feel safe. We did not stay a second night even though prepaid. After 500 days on the road over 10 years, this was the worst room. Only one step better than sleeping in the car.

We had the most comfortable bed and very spacious room. It was also very clean with frig and microwave. We loved sitting on the porch and visiting with other guests. Also there is a gazebo with lots of bird feeders and two trees that had more birds flitting around. Then at dusk 5 big horn sheep were in the neighbors... More

We weren't sure about this as a stopover but it turned out quite nicely, especially for the reasonable rates. The room was large with two queen beds and a cot, TV (not flat screen and not many channels), fridge, and microwave. It was also relatively clean and odor free. Located close to the highway means lots of highway noise during... More

The motel itself is okay. Nice bathroom, kitchen was well equipped. Staff is so so. It's just that the rooms are not that much cheaper as some in the canmore area but I guess the others offer a bit more. So if you just need it for a night I guess its okay, but if you stay longer in the... More
