our two bedroom condo is very spacious and well appointed. However, the cleaning schedule is baffling. We would come back to find that the kids' bed was made but not ours for a couple of days. We were there for a week and only once our bed was made. The amenities were sometimes replenished ( dish soap and laundry detergent).... More

We had a pleasant stay at Solara. The unit was spacious, nicely decorated and clean and the grounds looked new and well kept. We had courtyard view, so not much to see out of the windows. There is fan which blows constantly in the middle of the yard. This bothered me, but not the rest of the people in my... More

Stayed at the Solara Resort for a wedding at Lake Louise. This resort is perfect for families as we needed something to accommodate all 5 of us including small kids. The rooms are really nice, clean and all updated amenities. One of the staff at the front desk exceeded my expectations. I rented one of their free bikes and it... More

My husband and I stayed at Solara for 5 nights in August 2015. The location was fine, check-in and front-desk team were fine, spa was great, but we got frustrated with a few issues. 1) Wireless internet. We were planning on using the internet to plan our hikes or driving routes for the day, as well as finding restaurants to... More

We stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath room and it was nice and clean. Our ice maker never worked so we had to get ice from the front desk every day. The pool was...laughable. It was 1 and a half feet deep - the hot tub was deeper than the pool! Being 2 adults with no kids, we were... More

My wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon. The facility is very new and well maintained. We enjoyed the facility location and overall beautiful Canmore. Good parking and room amenities.

Hotel room was awesome but front desk service was really bad. We waited in the lobby for nearly 3 hours while they got our room ready. When we checked in they said our room wasn't ready but house keeping would get to it next. 3 hours later we finally got in

My husband and I stayed here for a week. Falcon Crest next door had been my first choice, but I had a discount code for a website that made Solara quite a bit less expensive, so we decided to stay there instead. We ended up with a two bedroom condo even though we only needed and had reserved one bedroom.... More

Why are the reviews so critical of this resort? You read of similar resorts in the area that don't get the criticism that Solara does and get higher ratings. I think the difference is Solara has "Resort & Spa" in the name which makes people think this is more a hotel property and less a condo property. It is a... More
