Spent a night in one of their rooms with the bunk beds for next to nothing. The room could house four adults and was an absolute steal! The location is amazing, the views powerful, and the service top notch! I almost didn't want to write a review about here so I could keep this secret and great find to my... More

Friendly helpful staff at the front desk. Rooms were massive, which was great. Great view from the room of the mountains. They informed us of things to do and the local free shuttle to the casino which we enjoyed. Just a nice motel in Canmore, which felt safe too. One annoying moment, is they emailed me prior to visit to... More

We decided to stay downtown on this visit to Canmore. The Drake is on Main Street, and a short stroll from all the Main Street restaurants and shops. Our room on the ground floor had a balcony overlooking a pretty stream, and offering a spectacular view of the mountains to the south and west. However, on the balcony of our... More

We choose this hotel because of its central location. We had the suite which is on the ground floor, which is spacious enough for 4. The rooms are all a bit dated, but ok for a night or two . The water pressure was very low thus making the shower erratic to say the least. So many of the new... More

We needed some last minute accommodations for two people and most places in town were booked. The Drake had a room and were reasonably priced compared to most places in the area. They're at the end of town but still very much in walking distance to the shoppes on Main Street and the adjacent shopping areas. There's a pub attached.... More

Went to the Drake last year for lunch and remembered how good it was, so we decided to go again this year and we had the best Rueben sandwich ever. Our server was Eric and he was friendly and gave great service, highly recommend. We had a party of 11 and all meals were great.

Unless you are planning to stay up partying until 2:30 am, this hotel is NOT the place for you. Families beware! Music and crowd noise from the popular attached pub is a public nuisance. The noise makes it impossible to get a good nights sleep. SKIP IT!!!

We booked a block of rooms at The Drake Inn for our wedding guests and it was the best decision we made! Brenda made it so easy for us and our guests. We blocked our rooms during the low season and she honored those rates for the high season! She kept us updated on room bookings and let us know... More

This inn is on Main St. Canmore which is very convenient! Definitely needs some new bedspreads, but was otherwise pleasantly surprised. Great location, free parking, wifi included. Pay the extra $20 for a creek view room - such a nice view to wake up to! Nice high ceilings!
