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.

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 Only thing I disliked was the hotel room door was out of date and in bad condition.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
