I had read the horrible reviews and was worried about what we would find, but as we were only going to be there for one night's sleep, a shower in the morning, and out the door, we figured we'd give it a try as the price was certainly right. When we arrived, I noticed the exterior and the lobby areas... More

I was a bit worried because of the reviews here and called the hotel before booking. The girl on the phone was very friendly and explained that things are different now and was reassuring. I was so relieved when I checked in! The room was roomy and very clean with two big beds (queen?). It was pretty basic but what... More

The Mountain View Inn (MVI) was pretty bad. In all honesty, my partner and I were just looking for something cheap to lay our heads for a few hours and this one had a "new management" sale. I mean, for the two of us, it was actually cheaper than getting two bunks at the local hostel. The rooms were fairly... More

I stayed at this Inn for 5 nights in Sept/Oct 2011, and found the service absolutely atrocious!! The room was ok (but I had to see 4 other rooms before I found one that was ok-either toilet didn't flush, or was in a weird location, etc.). There was a young female clerk working at the front desk who kept trying... More

My wife and I attended my son's wedding in Canmore and booked two nights at the Mountain View Inn through "Hotels.Com." We were greeted by a pleasant young man, "Jimmy" and were given a quiet room on the second floor, (there are only two floors, no elevator which was no problem for us). The room was basic but adequate. The... More

I stayed at Mountain View with my two teenaged children. It was disgusting!! The bedspread would NOT pass a blacklight test. The bathroom was also very dirty. I was glad we only had to spend the one night.

There appeared to be no other rooms in town; summer Saturday with bicycle and running events, so I was glad to get a room. Good price $79. Room was fine, clean, bit basic no problem. That part of the stay was OK. Then comes the continuing saga of Tina Sidhu, the manager (name on the business card). Exhibit A) My... More

I would go out of my way to stay here again. It was half the price the other hotels were charging - is right on the main hotel strip, next door to the Radisson. No coffee makers in room, but a nice clean coffee area and microwave down in lobby. 2 stories, no elevator, good parking, convenient to restaurant next... More

We stayed here in Sept 09 before and after a backpacking trip and we seemed to have a better experience than most. We paid $80 per night, one of the lowest rates in town. It was clean and functional and we had no problems. Granted, we didn't need a wake up call, or internet access, or restaurant recommendations, or extra... More
