Stayed here over a weekend for business. Unable to get to sleep until 2am. Walls are paper thin. Flushing water is so loud it wakes you up. No one answers the phone in the office if you try to complain. Parking stalls are so tight you can barely get out of your car. Extremely frustrating and stressful stay. Checked out... More

This is a great little jewel of a motel. Its location can't be beaten. close to the downtown area and walking paths. And the front desk was extremely helpful. Also very affordable. Cozy motel to stay at, I recommend to all my friends!

This place doesn't look all that appealing from the street... it looks like a regular motel with potholes in the parking lot... but the staff and the upstairs rooms make it a worthwhile stop! The staff went out of their way to accommodate us... extremely pleasant! Our second floor room had an awesome view from a really big window, the... More

Very clean little motel. Great distance to everything downtown. You can beat beat the price very budget friendly for this expensive area to travel (Banff/Canmore). We loved staying here and would recommend/stay again. For the price you are paying it is excellent, couldn't find better in town.

We stayed for one night on January 1 2015. We were pleasantly surprised at the room. It was basic but very clean. The location was great walking distance to the main downtown canmore. Only complaint and not the hotels fault was the ignorant people in the room above...very noisy so if you can , choose an upstairs room. Also they... More

We stayed for one night whilst travelling from Calgary across the rocky mountains. Canmore is a very pretty town and the Bow Valley Inn is everything you would expect from a small town motel. It is situated in a very convenient location with gorgeous views all around. The room was spacious room and staff helpful. From the top floor, expect... More

We only spent one night on our way through to Canada's west coast, the location was great, as it allowed us to do some walking to find somewhere to eat, and a bit of exercise afterwards. Room was clean, but for those who have any trouble climbing stairs, try to avoid the upper floor. Nearby restaurant was good though a... More

Nice clean rooms with coffee and tea making facility, tv and bathroom. Top helpful receptionist who provided us with additional tea and coffee at no charge. Everything in Canmore is in walking distance. Good value for the money.

Spent two nights, the rooms were large, comfy and clean. The staff in the office were friendly and informative. This seemed to apply to several different folks at various times. They even provided bear spray and a bell for our early morning hikes. They took the time to recommend and warn us about good and not so positive spots. This... More
