This reasonably priced motel is located close to the main business area of Canmore. Rooms are of a reasonable size and beds were comfortable. We were pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and the basic amenities provided. Internet seemed to be a little weak during certain times of the day. The motel backs on to a creek and several...

I like Canmore. It is a small town with character, smaller than Banff and not as busy, and much cheaper too. Yet you are only 20mins away from Banff on the highway. I requested and got a ground floor room with well equipped kitchenette. The room looked very smart and immaculate and was recently renovated. When I stayed in 2012,I... More

Don't let first impressions fool you. The rooms are clean and it's located very close to down town. It is a great value. A perfect place for families and those looking to stay in an affordable and well located place.

Our room was clean and upgraded. It had a convenient little kitchen. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. It was very affordable too. You cannot beat the location. It is well worth taking the short walk down Main Street to the walkway by the Bow River. We backed on Policeman's Creek which has another walkway and the... More

When we decided to book a room at this motel, we didn't know what to expect. We had picked this place because of the affordable rates and the great location. Our expectations weren't high. We visit Canmore at least once a year, and out of all the places we have stayed; in our opinion, Bow Vally motel has been one... More

We travel to Canmore/Banff 3-4 times per year and always spend at least one night here. It is reasonably priced, the rooms are clean and have the option of a kitchenette with a fridge, full stove and microwave. It is situated by a laundromat and within walking distance from many quaint shops and restaurants as well as local hiking paths.... More

I searched out a room in Canmore for a few hours online and Bow Valley Motel was the best price I could find. The room was clean and had everything I needed for my two night stay. It has a big flat screen tv and a keurig coffee machine was nice in the morning. It's not all that fancy (there's... More

Dirty. Hair is everywhere..gross! I prepayed but they charged me extra charge for the room reserved and prepayed. They just said that the price was wrong and booking.com made a mistake. And my room was supposed to have a kitchen, but there was NO. They just said it was a mistake too. Irresponsible ever.
