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 The room is shabby and outdated but clean.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

didn't stay here but enjoyed good food and service sitting on the deck enjoying the view of the mountains. Ate here with the family one evening while staying in Canmore. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I enjoyed the beer.

2 nights in the supposed best room ($240 ish for 2 nights). Outdated, not particularly clean, very rundown. Person underneath was smoking weed and it stunk our room out. Fairly quiet, nice view. Terrible beds that need updating (roll you to the middle), TV OK, wifi very sporadic. Felt like a very cheap motel that you might rent by the... More

Horrible place to stay if you want to be asleep before 2am. Music from the bar is loud and obnoxious. Called the front desk to have it turned down. Nope. Would never come back or suggest this place to anyone.

So nice & clean - perhaps not the newest in furniture etc. but the room was very clean and the location is tops - if a person has a drink they don't have to ever worry about driving from this hotel as everything is within walking distance.

This hotel offers a lot for the price. The rooms were pleasant and comfortable with an older but decent sized tv with lots of channels. Everything seemed fairly clean and in proper working condition. The location is great, about as central as you could get for amenities inn Canmore. I didn't hear any noise from the adjacent bar but I... More

I wasn't too impressed when I first saw it. It looks like a cheap motel but I was pleasantly surprised. The view from our room was amazing. I loved the fact that it was walking distance from Downtown. There is also a pub onsite which is great if you don't want to venture too far. The food was good friendly... More

I have to admit when I first saw the Drake I nearly kept driving! the outside looked like a cheap motel, we asked to see one of the rooms and was pleasantly surprised. Lovely views of the creak and mountains. The pub next door had a wings night, but we didn't hear anything. The rooms had a filter coffee machine,... More

The place was amazing and the best customer service i have received. I was shopping around for a hotel to stay for a night in Canmore and the guest service representative offered a price match to any hotel that i want to stay in Canmore. My time was saved from all the hustle to look for a descent hotel...The moment... More

We stayed here for a weekend in December. It was a great place. We had a room looking out at the creek and mountains and it was beautiful. We loved the bar - our waiter was awesome and always made sure we had a drink. The local band - Band of Brothers - was awesome. They made the experience even... More
