We live in Calgary and often need to get out of town and the Drake is where we like to go best of all. Its perfectly located in Canmore with a great view, we can take the dog and go out all around on long walks with spectacular scenery. Its the perfect weekend getaway with pretty good prices for rooms.... More

The Drake Inn is a basic, and perfectly acceptable hotel in a great location. It has amazing views of the mountains, was very quiet, had a great pub with good food, and best of all, the service was excellent. It was very, very cold my first night there and, when asked, they provided me with an extension cord so I... More

The hotel was pretty standard. You get what you pay for. Good location - downtown and walking distance to restaurants.

My husband and I arrived late after a long day of travel. While the floor was covered in stains and littered with leaves I thought that if the bed and bathroom were clean we could sleep and move on. My custom is to fold down the bed linens and inspect them for cleanliness; this revealed pubic hair and toilet paper.... More

Right beside the creek, bunnies galore out the door! Close to downtown but also close enough to hit the boardwalk and wander down the creek. Restaurant/bar is nice place for a cold one on a summer evening.

We stayed at the Drake Inn for the first time this summer and I can tell you we will be back again next summer. Our room was clean and tidy with excellent views of the mountains. The staff, especially those at reception were more than helpful to us with great advice on locale attractions, They always had a smile and... More

My wife does fire and flood restoration and immedeatly noticed the black mold on the ceiling of the bathroom. This place is a dump and is very dirty. I feel ripped off paying 150$ for a... More

A horrible stay! It was unclean. Blood on the sheets. Bathroom gross. However the worse bit is the fact that we went with friends that we had previously purchased a gift certificate for the drake. At check out we had to fight for them to honor the gift certificate. Even suggesting that the gift certificate was fraudulent. Like I would... More

This place is so trashy that we had to get another hotel and shift. This is worse than any motel 6 and esp. in a nice part of the world like Canadian rockies, this place is a shame. It has broken furniture, dirty linens/carpets and gloomy rooms. There is no a/c and the rooms are really dark. We got tricked... More

Booked this hotel through Hotwire which gave it 3 stars but we were shocked after seeing conditions of the room. First thing is the room has no AC. In stead, they provided a BROKEN fan in the room. The room was dirty, part of food from previous guests can be seen on the floor. The sink has major stain which... More
