We had a great stay at The Drake Inn. I've stayed here many of times and it is clean and is walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants downtown Canmore. Staff was friendly and helpful with questions of where to eat in town. Thank you.

Stayed 1 night. Room carpet, bathroom and bed was clean. Would recommend to light travelers on a low budget with not very high standards. The staff were friendly and informative. Wifi worked great. Only thing I disliked was the hotel room door was out of date and in bad condition. I could hear very clearly from my bed our neighbors... More

Love staying at the Drake, yes it's not fancy but it is a solid 3 star property. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and very comfortable. Location is great--short walk to downtown Canmore especially first thing in the morning is very nice. Make sure you stop at Beamers for coffee and muffin...

It was very difficult to find a place to stay near Banff, but we found this place. It was not cheap, but it was the best we could find for the least amount of money. We were very disappointed with the accommodations. We were given one of the rooms in the parking area across from the office. It was far... More

Spent one night here. Chose because was among the less expensive in the area and close to downtown. A good place if you want to be close to Main Street, have drinks or dinner downtown, or walk along the creek. I didn't have a creek view room, but I could imagine they would be nice. The front desk staff was... More

This place is absolutely terrible. The beds sinks in too much and squeaks a lot. The furnitures here are old, dirty and unstable! The only good thing about it is the lovely view of the mountains but that was ruined by the dirty windows. Also the tv was one of those old boxy ones that stunk. Literally it smells really... More

The photos you see online lead you to believe that The Drake Inn is nestled in a lovely spot along a creek mountainside. Indeed, there is a lovely creek along the hotel, but the hotel is nestled between two busy, noisy streets. As the inn does not have air conditioning, you are acutely aware of the noise. The mountains are... More
