This is not a fancy place. Great guest clerks. Very helpful. We wanted to hike. They told us where and provided us with bear spray (which we fortunately didn't need). The kitchenette enables you to make your own meals if you wish. Very comfy bed. Very clean. $325 for two nights...that's a lot, but Canmore is a resort town, so... More

It's an older motel on Main Street (8th) in Canmore. Super nice staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Has a great location right on the river and it is quiet, especially for being right in the downtown area. There is a walking trail along the river right next to the motel and you are only 2-3 blocks from grocery stores, Canadian... More

We stayed at the Bow Valley Motel for 2 nights. The Manager called a couple days before our arrival to confirm our needs. Since my Mother was travelling with us she wanted to check if stairs would be an issue. I told her they would and she arranged for us to be on the ground floor. She called me back... More

Stayed here again two nights in Mid July. I had to lug the suitcases up to the third floor but room clean and quiet. Nice view of the mountain out the front window. Room complete with two queens, fridge, microwave and flat screen. Shower worked great and lots of towels. Located in Canmore city centre and within walking distance of... More

Great location, in the begining of the center of Canmore. The room was clean and comfortable, with basic facilities . Simple motel with fair price. Friendly staff, free wifi. Good option if you don't want to stay in Banff

Very kind and helpful staf. Lady in the reception let me checking in at 12.00 while formally you can check in 15.00. I was very tired after driving 12 hours at that time, and she and room service prepared the rooms soon, so I can sleep and awake fresh. Room is small, but it is more than enough for me.... More

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
