The Solara Condo type resort is situated off highway 1 in Canmore and close to the amenities in Canmore. Check in was quick and efficient. We rented a 2 bedroom superior condo with a nice view. Furnishings and overall look of the apartment was better than expected. Full kitchen and basic kitchen ware available. Underground parking available. Gym and pool... More

We booked an over night stay at the Solara and first impressions were great but after spending the evening in the very tasteful decorated room I started to notice it was actually very dirty. There was cobwebs on the lamps, the bathroom shelves were dusty (especially under the sink), the bedroom blinds had hand prints in the dust, and these... More

Just stayed at a beautiful 3 bedroom unit for a few days. But had to have the cleaning staff redo their cleaning. The place was filthy. Floors hadn't been cleaned, food crumbs all over kitchen counters, and sofa and chairs, tabletops had sticky drink circles and bathrooms had hair in tubs. Ice maker didn't work in the fridge and overall... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of August 2014. We have never stayed at the Solara before but we definitely would again! We had a one bedroom suite with a beautiful full kitchen and two fireplaces! One in the family room and one in our bedroom. Our bathroom was beautiful and large. Nice shower... More

We had a wonderful stay in June. We stayed in the two bedroom premium suite with a large balcony on the top floor. This provides a pitched higher ceiling which adds to the grandeur! We loved the suite. It was clean, spaceous and well appointed. The balcony was large and comfortable and could seat eight outside for dinner. The pool... More

This is the second summer we have visited as a family and stayed at the Solara. The staff and service personnel were exceptional as before but we found the suite to be seriously in need of maintenance: The A/C kept shutting off (not normal cycling but showing a fault in the system), the clothes dryer would not run for more...

This was a nice property but was less than expected considering the high star rating. Then again, everything is relative - so compared to others this is the best in the area. We liked the 2 bedroom we had and had a nice large balcony and patio for cook out or just relaxing. Though we encountered a number of issues... More

No working a/c, the rest of the hotel seems to have the heat on in August. Parking area is literally mirror to mirror, and lacking of places to do so. Beds were uncomfortable and with the room stuck at plus 26C it was too hot to pretend to enjoy the stay. The front desk seems to be of a special... More
