Very private, well appointed. Staff welcoming and accommodating. Ideal for large groups or small. We had two families in a two bedroom two bathroom room. Couldn't have worked out better Good location in Canmore and close to the highway.

We have always stayed at solara when in Canmore as the rooms are clean and I feel at home with everything I need in every suite. I have stayed in every size room and have gone with family, friends and to attend a wedding. See you again soon solara!

Beautiful resort, great looking rooms (the 3 Sisters Mountain range is a grand backdrop), well-equipped. HOWEVER, maintenance is haphazard (towels change was supposed to be daily IF you ask..; hallways not thoroughly cleaned), dishwasher and laundry pods have to be purchased after the first batch (what a miserable lack of marketing saavy and good will), the underground parking lot also...

Dear Ntee6603: Thank you for sharing your review with us. Great to hear that you enjoyed the amazing location and the spacious sized and well-equipped suites.

Gym closes at 8:00 pm. There is no restaurant on site. You have to walk through the parking garage to get to the hot tub/kiddie pool (there is no real pool you can swim in). Room is ok. It gets cleaned every 4th day. A bit pricey considering everything, but functional.

Dear Firtar F: Thank you for your review. It is only through guest comments such as yours that we can continue to improve our operation. Ownership is looking at getting a restaurant shortly and updated the pool area as well. Please note it does clearly mention on our website that we do not have a restaurant currently. As we are...

We only stayed for one night at the hotel, which we regret very much. We should have booked all of our days at Banff here. We had a 2 br 2 bath suite. The suite had a full kitchen plus in room washer/dryer. Little things like dish detergent and washer detergent were provided. The kids love the 4 shower head... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Solara in the past 12 months and I have been disappointed for a second time. This is why I'm writing this review.

The suite was amazing! Great kitchen equipped with everything you could need. Loved the theatre and movies. Loved the free bike rentals, but book them early. The room was not the cleanest but passable, nothing that I couldn't manage. They have a collection of DVD's that you can borrow as well. The facilities are amazing. The grounds are really nice...

We stayed there for 2 nights to relax at the end of visiting family. Overall, this is a great resort. We walked to most things close by. The only issue was that the A/C stopped working for the 2 days we were there. The maintenance staff got it working for a few hours only for it stop working. Each time... More

There were a few glitches and they designed the place without enough elevators; however, the views are fantastic, the employees very nice and best of all they keep it very clean. We resorted to taking the stairs quite frequently but we figured it was all part of the "hiking" we were doing anyway. I know the pool is very small... More
