My advice... pack a tent or sleep outside on the ground before you stay here. I have stayed in some dumps over my years of travel but this one wins the highest award. I would give credit to the staff who try and they really do and I offer my praise to them. It is hard to make a silk... More

I have stayed in some bare bones rooms before and I have stayed in the most luxurious rooms before. I am pretty easy to please and don't set my expectations too high when the rooms are meant to be affordable. HOWEVER hygiene and cleanliness are important to me. I was really disgusted to discover that the bed sheets did not... More

Very basic accomodations, no coffee maker in the room , no fridge, just hair drier and iron. If you stay 2 nights no maid service unless you pay extra. Rooms are very basic with no pictures, 20 inch tube type TV and a phone. Cleanlyness was ok and there was coffee in the lobby. Rooms were a good size and... More

Over all, this is a very economical place to stay, if you are travelling on a tight budget, definitely a place to keep in mind. However, I feel they should tell you on their website, that they do NOT offer daily housekeeping service, nor coffee in room. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very plain, but...

We stayed here for two nights. There is only front desk service during the day and no amenities such as pool or restaurant. But the room was clean, the beds were fine and the location was good. If you're just going to be sleeping here, it's a very budget friendly choice.

We ended up here through a GroupOn this weekend. After reading the reviews we approached the deal with some trepidation. First off you have to keep things in perspective. You are paying $65 for a hotel room in Canmore. Not $200. If you need a chocolate on your pillow every night and your bed made, this is not the place... More

Groupon brought us here. We were impressed with the view and the location to downtown, within walking distance. When we walked into the room it appeared clean, it was tidy. However, upon further inspection (over our time there) we spotted clipped nails on the carpet beside the bed along with other "stuff" that wasn't vacuumed up from previous guests. Stray... More

My husband and I bought a Groupon getaway for Mountain View Inn in Canmore. We thought it was a good deal at the time that we bought the coupon as we love to go to Canmore and Banff from time to time. There was an extra charge for a premier king suite which only provided a very hard older king... More

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
