Needed an economic place to stay in pricey Canmore for one night and have stayed at the Drake Inn before so thought we'd see if they take pets. They do at no charge. However, their pet policy is a bit daunting with lots of rules; a large deposit is required as is a room inspection on check out so no... More

We travelled with 2 dogs and stayed in a first floor room. The staff were very accommodating and the room had everything we needed, albeit was a bit small. Two things to keep in mind, the room was VERY warm and little ventilation as the windows only opened small. Also, no privacy whatsoever as the rooms are very close together... More

I was very pleased with our stay at the Drake as it was totally pet friendly and it was our first trip taking our skittish cat. We reserved through Hotels.com and I confirmed that it was pet friendly by looking at their website. One thing - you have to call them to let them know you are bringing a pet.... More

I was traveling all through the Rockies with my wife and our families. The first place we stopped was the Drake Inn in Canmore. When making the booking I found the staff so nice and I was booking a number of rooms and they made it easy. The rooms are all a good size and very clean. If you want... More

Went with friends for a weekend getaway. Location for this hotel was excellent, very close to downtown shops, and stores across the street. (grocery, bank and liquor...all we needed) The room was great. It was in the corner of the new part.. actually two rooms made into one I'd say. Furniture was nice, leather couches and a kitchenette with a... More

Location wise, very good and close to a lot of attractions, shops, restaurants etc, the room was large enough but the tv and table lamp weren't working. on the plus side the higher floor rooms have an amazing view of the mountain.

This is a review just on the bar/restaurant. We did not stay in the hotel portion. We stayed several days in Canmore for a ski trip. We found the entire towns food options to be subpar. Part of this I think is because we are Americans and we crave red meat and nowhere in Canada would cook our meat rare.... More

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.
