There were bugs crawling on the floor and two large flies in the room when we checked in. The grout in the shower had black mold all over it and there was some sort of weird green permanent crust around the base of the plug up to the tap. The tap in the sink leaked ALL night. Half of the... More

Not fit for human habitation + Worst service ever = The Akai. This place would get a no star rating if this system allowed that. My expectations were low to begin with, but it's mind blowing a place this filthy can be allowed to remain in business. I took a room at the Akai in August 2010 only because there... More

I stayed in this little place in Canmore, Alberta not too long ago as my 3 friends and I traveled through the Banff area and I must say there was no better value in the Rockies. I don't think this place is the best motel/hotel in the world but as we were very conscious of the limited spending budget this... More

We had a hard time finding a clean motel at a decent price in Banff, so we decided to try the next town, Canmore, At travel info centre, we were told about Akai Motel and when I called to find out about the price, I was almost shocked by their good price. I was unsure about the place so we... More

We stayed at the Akai prior to running the Melissa's Road Race in Banff in September 2008. This is hands down the most awful place I have ever stayed in and I really hope I never stay at a place as bad as this again. The "motel rooms" were essentially a bunch of ATCO trailers hammered together to resemble a... More
