We really enjoyed our stay, the room was really nice and new. Service at checkin was great. We would definitely stay again. Even though there was no pool, we walked to the recreation centre in Canmore.

Solara is a relatively new resort located just outside downtown Canmore. It's in an area with several other apart hotels about a 10 minute walk to main street and the shopping area. Groceries, a liquor store and restaurants are within the same radius. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was nicely appointed and included a wine cooler along... More

This was a nice resort. Very relaxing and peaceful. View was ok, other resorts blocked some of the view. I picked a room with a kitchen because there was no restaurant in the resort and I brought my own food and drink in. There was an electric BBQ on the deck. I did some cleaning of the BBQ, table and... More

Dear Chris S: I do appreciate your review regarding your past stay with us. Cleanliness is of the utmost importance in the Hotel/Resort industry and what you experienced during your stay is certainly not a Solara Resort & Spa standard. I also do apologize about the maid service. Our goal is always to exceed guest expectations and I would appreciate... More

We stayed in a premium 2 bedroom suite with a great deck. I have been here before and loved it so much that each time I come to Canmore I stay here. It's a great location, away from the business but close enough to enjoy a quiet walk downtown. My only issue was with the booking desk at Bellstar -... More

Friends recommand me the hotel with great intentions. But pool, cinema, commun rooms and many other elements were not available for my stay. I bring the point to the 20's year old manager that did nothing to keep my buniess. I m sad about the service and accomodation during my stay.

Awesome place, contemporary feel. - Granite counter tops throughout and stainless steel appliances. - Wine cooler, so bring wine - The description of the 2 bedroom didn't note there were 2 full bathrooms. This was a positive surprise as we stayed with another couple. - BBQ on the Balcony - The shower in the main bathroom was awesome. It had... More

Excellent room easily able to cater for my wife and I and three kids (11, 9, and 6). The pool area was a little small but there was a kids play area and plenty of things to explore. I would definitely recommend staying here when in Canmore and will stay here again soon.

Staff are very friendly and accommodating, making sure all requests were met. The room was clean and staff provided water both days that we were there. The meeting space that was donated to us had big windows allowing a lot of light in the room. The table was large, accommodating ten people and the chairs were very comfortable.
