Access and parking are awful, tight, and the entrance to drive in to is really easy to miss. I had to drive waaaaaay around to get in when I missed it. Bathroom: tub stained brown, very narrow with little room to maneuver. Bowed shower curtain rod is the only thing that saved this teensy space. Bedroom: beds were comfy, slept... More

We used to enjoy staying at the Drake Inn while visiting the mountain parks. However our most recent stay will be our last. The pub food prices are utterly ridiculous. Lets start with our selection of a reuben sandwich and a Caesar salad.... $17 really? The natchos....with beef $24? And half the size that we enjoy at our local pub... More

We stayed at The Drake Inn on the May long weekend. The room was very clean, but pretty basic and a bit outdated. No fridge or microwave. The location can't be beat in Canmore, right on the main street. Close to everything. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the river which is nice. Most other rooms still have amazing views of...

The Drake Inn has great value - decent rooms for a great price with a view! Right I'm the heart of Canmore, and clean rooms make it a great locale. My issue comes from the weird "Bar Manager", Rob Dingo, who would not let us speak to an owner when we asked to do so (had trouble finding seating even... More

Myself and a girl friend, along with my small dog, stayed at the Drake Inn over the Easter long weekend, 2013. Having a pet we were given a bottom level room (Room 19), at the very end, with a patio overlooking the creek and of course the breath taking mountains. It was ideal. Never once moved my vehicle as everything... More

We paid for the upgraded "suite" but were disappointed to find it was just a normal room with a fridge added... It was not a suite at all. The room was not very well appointed with few pillows, the wash hand basin in the room as apposed to in the bathroom, and the door was very drafty as it opened... More

Stayed two nights on Feb 15th and 16th 2013, to take advantage of the valentines special Room prices went from the 69$ a night regular price, to the inflated 169$/night! What a waste. Will never be back. Horrible service by the two girls running the place. They are the two most unprofessional girls I have ever met in my life.... More

We drove to Canmore in July. Stayed in this hotel for 2 days. We felt every thing is fine except climb the staircase. But our window got stunning views in result of climbing. Also the Canmore is a beautiful town. It is so enjoyably to walked around town.

Was in Canmore this weekend with a party of 12, for a bachelorette party. We were very disappointed and let down by our experience at the Drake. :(  We booked a reservation well in advanced, and the staff was not interested in accommodating us.
