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

Room was absolutely terrible carpets look like they have not been vacuumed or cleaned in a very long time. Hair on pillows and sheets was not impressed at all. No plug ins anywhere and extension cords running across the room. The room is so outdated it was like walking back into the 70's. The only positive thing to say about... More

If you are looking for hotel to enjoy the views and amenities pass on this hotel. The hotel caters to a party crowd that is prowling the common areas at all hours of the night. Be prepared for rowdy's on the outside attached decks to the rooms, knocking on the door at 2:00 am in the morning and general stomping... More

This hotel is overpriced for a small noisy room (bar with loud music underneath). It was clean and comfortable. Office staff leave in the evening. The room is shabby and outdated but clean. Not worth $178. Restaurant staff very nice and bartender exceptional
