This is an economy hotel but for being peak season and getting a room last minute for 2 people and a dog ($140) I found it to be a pretty good deal. The place we rented (rm 26) was clean and the bed was very comfy. Some hair left in shower but that's minor. We've already decided to stay here... More

Bighorn Hotel, Dead Man's Flats between Canmore and Kananaskis. Booked it a couple of days before arrival 'cos of late finalization of plans. Nothing available between Canmore and Banff, except for exorbitantly expensive places. This place seemed reasonable in price and looked presentable. Imagine our surprise when we arrived and saw a notice on the front door from the Alberta... More

I was reading the reviews and I don't think I could possibly trash this place any more than has already been done. I'll give it the old college try though. My daughter and I were heading to Banff on a tenting trip when the sky opened up and it started to pour. We pulled into Canmore, hoping to find a... More

On the front door of the office has a sign from the Alberta regulator saying the way at the motel is unsafe to drink and if you use it to wash your hands you should use hand sanitizer after. This notice was dated November 2014. If I hadn't prepaid for my room I would have left. TERRIBLE!

We ended up here as a last resort as it was the only room available anywhere near/in the mountains and our previously booked hotel had overbooked and canceled on us. We knew we were settling but didn't have any other option. I would have rather slept in our van and saved the $240! The sign on the front door to... More

A run of the mill motel that is somewhat maintained and economical. I find it odd that they have no air conditioning in the rooms. The furniture is old but nice. One redeeming trait is the back parking lot. If you are travelling with a trailer this may be the place to consider in the Canmore area depending on the... More

We stayed at this place whilst on the road. On check in the host greeted us chewing a mouthful of food. The room was stale smelling, the bed and pillows uncomfortable and we were woken by mice in the room during the night. When I reported the mice the manager simply shrugged it off without an apology or offer of... More

It is far from Banff, the room was small, there was no bath tub just a tiny shower. It was a sweltering hot day and there was no air conditioning. I was in an upstairs room and it was very hot with no air flowing even with the window open. There was no coffee in the room, no breakfast. All... More

$150 for an average bed for the night BUT no drinkable water, no breakfast, not even a coffee . . . Poor . . . On a saturday near Canmore it was the last available place, Hardly surprising ! On the good side the Husky next door has coffee and a well priced breakfast.

Clean and convenient but don't expect much more. Good for a cheap 1 or 2 night stay near the park or last chance lodging on your way by. But if you're looking for extras, you won't find them here. A dated building providing a minimal service in an antiquated, sleepy, mountain-side community. If you're okay with that, it'll be just... More
