Cheap em cosy place, but only for a few days, because it doesn`t offer any food, and it is in front of the road which may annoy your sleep. We cooker our breakfast in the picnic table in front of the hotel.

Staining on the bed sheets, curtains and just about everything you can imagine. Feels unclean just being inside ( Room 15). Everything is outdated, which would be fine if it was clean. Look elsewhere, you won't regret it.

We stayed at the Bighorn in October 2014 en route back to Alberta from BC. Overall we gave it a 3 Value --- a 4/5, price was about $60 all in for a single room Location --- right on the Trans Canada highway. Dead Man's Flats isn't real close to anything (Canmore is about 10 km away). One could use... More

Very small room. Very expensive for what you get. Asian clerk was very hard to understand. Only 8 non-cable stations, (no news, local or national) No coffee in room, had to ask for hair dryer. No breakfast. Would not stay there again

The only good thing I can say is our sheets were clean. It was noisy. The floors were dirty. There was no air condition. We didn't even use the shower. We just wanted to get out of there. Friends made the reservation for us or we wouldn't have stayed. The lobby smelled. It was like highway robbery for the price... More

We had stayed in Dead Man Flats before, a couple of years ago. The motel we stayed in before is now closed and we needed a place to stay for the night. (It was late in the day and we had been to Banff, which is just down the road and there was no vacancies there.) We decided to try... More

Located on the highway, the building is pretty derelict, no access via lift to second floor rooms and rooms are very basic and very low end with a fridge and botch job furniture. Sheets were dirty, towels tattered and the mattress in need of replacement . We asked to replace sheets and for fan as due to the noise you... More

No blow dryer, no coffee, no air conditioning, almost lumpy mattress, no screen on door- so you can eaten by bugs all night or lay down in stifling heat for a few hours.... and listen to highway traffic or your next room's conversations. Soap, but no cream rinse for hair. If you book early enough, you can get a decent... More

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
