Super cheap place to stay! We were here over New Years. The staff is super friendly and were very helpful! The rooms were not as bad as the people before me said. I've stayed in much worse places for far more money! There are no housekeepers, but we were told that when we checked in. People really need to pay... More

The hotel is a dump! Very ran down the whole place was burned with cigarets burns everywhere. I never seen housekeeping once and they never cleaned our room, had to ask for a garbage bag and the garbage can looked like it had not been cleaned since 1999. The toilet and bathroom smelled of urine, shower was so terrible had... More

The Mountain View Inn is a very simple place to stay, and I mean that literally. Looks to me like it was built in the 1980s or so and the building is still of that era. Very little modernization or updating to be seen. Things have a tired and somewhat worn look but that said, the place is clean. Don't... More

I was passing through Canmore again and looking for a good deal - the Mtn View Inn was pretty hard to pass up with rates so much lower than the others in town. I was a little wary even though I'd been here before but everything was fine. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the people at reception... More

We had to cancel just hours past the "deadline" due to legitimate bereavement issues. They were cold, unsympathetic and just to add insult to or suffering dinged us $63.00 to NOT stay at their dump in the mountains!!!!! If they are like this for the big issues how good will they be if you have a small complaint about towels... More

The rates are good, beats paying Banff hotel prices, but: Don't stay here if it's hot out! The A/C does not work. Fan clatters and there is no way to shut it off. It's an older hotel. Because i heard another room air conditioner sounding crazy like ours. We managed ok, but if it would have been any hotter, it... More

Everything is average. A bit run down with the most basic of neccesities. No hair dryer. The front office staff at the time of check-in was not the most friendliest of people but did at least offer some directions to the restaurant we chose. The bed was hard as a rock. As always, you get what you pay.

Elaina K said it best .. we were originally booked in for a 2 night stay thru a Groupon deal and we checked out after the first night .. I would never recommend this place to anyone !
