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

Great location right on the main street but quiet. It's an older looking hotel with a key on a keyring but it's modern. The rooms are big, the beds are comfy, modern TV and modern bathroom. Try the second floor facing the street and you get a beautiful view of the mountains. Nice pretty flowers on the balcony. Friendly and... More

Nice large, clean rooms and a good location, but, the staff were amazing - the receptionists went out of their way to offer advice on where to go & what to see - they ensured we got the absolute most from our stay in Canmore. Canmore itself is a lovely town, much less 'touristy' than Banff but having everything we... More

Spent one night at this very nice little hotel....woman at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating.....room was very clean and comfortable with a lot of little extra touches that you don't see elsewhere.....a small negative is that there is no elevator.......our room was on the third floor so we had to lug our belongings up a few flights...

We stayed here for two nights in a room next to the laundry (ground level), so the view was not so great as for other reviewers, but it was clean and everything you need was there (fridge, coffee maker, AC, etc.). We had two queens which were quite comfortable. The location of the motel is just great. You can easily... More

We were happy here for a night. It was clean, homey and conveniently located within walking distance of the center of town. We considered doing the Econolodge because it is a similar price point, but went with the mom-and-pop place. We were glad we did because it has a better location. Also, the front desk person welcomed us and helped... More

Rooms are very clean. This motel is right in downtown Canmore so convenient if you want to eat or walk around downtown. It is not fancy but great staff, views, & location. We enjoyed our 3 nights here in July.
