We were very pleased with the friendly staff, clean room. Great value for money. Great location, close to a lot of nice restaurants. Can't get enough of the mountains. Overall, we would recommend this hotel and would return.

The room was clean. The bathroom had been renovated recently. We had a fridge, coffee pot and Microwave. There were two sinks one in the bathroom and one outside which was nice considering we were on a girls weekend and needed the two sinks. The ladies at the desk were all very friendly. They had air conditioning which was nice... More

Thank you for your review! It sounds like your party stayed in a Deluxe Double Queen. These upgraded rooms are great for guests that are staying multiple nights as they do have the appliances as well as the second sink and are definitely worth the slightly extra cost than that of the economy rooms. We hope to see you again... More

A budget hotel as they have no maid service during your stay unless you pay extra. This was not really a problem as we only stayed here for two nights. We made our own bed and hung up the towels ourselves. It is located in Canmore, which is close to Banff national Park. A great place to use a a... More

The hotel was a good size and was clean and fairly comfortable. We were attending a wedding at a hotel next door and found the rates at this hotel significantly cheaper than the wedding venue (Solara). The price we paid of 129 plus taxes was quite high for a basic 2 star hotel like this but it was a Summer... More

We thank you for your review. We are currently in the process of replacing TV's and upgrading some of the furniture with faux letter chairs and such, but as with everything, it takes time.

Based on some of the reviews we didn't have high expectations for the Mountain View Inn but they had rooms available for $150 (matching Hotels.com) on a long weekend, which is quite reasonable around Banff for 2 adults and 2 kids. Our deluxe queen room was clean with a good wifi connection. It had two beds, flat screen tv, fridge... More

If I could give negative points I would. I booked this room as a stop over on a trip. I said there were 2 adults and 3 kids, I said I had a Matt for the extra kid but would need extra bedding. The booking lady said that was ok. When I came I asked for the extra bedding and... More

The Mountain View Inn was the first hotel we were staying in during our adventure in the Rockies, and I was admittedly a little nervous. I read the reviews here on Tripadvisor (and let's be honest here - they're not very good), and was truly expecting the worst. However, seeing as we were trying to keep a relatively tight budget...

We checked in after hours and retrieved our key from a lockbox. When we entered the room, my daughter first noticed that there was a hair on one of the pillows. At first I didn’t think much of it. But then when she pulled down the bedspread and flat sheet, she discovered a box containing a tube of prescription ointment... More

We were travelling on a budget, so we couldn't afford some of the outrageous prices in Banff. Instead we stayed in Canmore. The pickings were a bit slim, given the time of year so we chose the Mountain View Inn. We were a bit hesitant, given some of the negative reviews we had seen but figured we'd chance it... And...
