We arrived late so it was just a place to crash however we should have kept driving as we would have saved the money. I had read the reviews regarding this hotel and it was mentioned a couple of times that the bar attached to the hotel was loud but we thought it couldn't be that bad right? It was... More

It's really not that good of a hotel but it is really not that bad of a hotel either. When I checked in I got upgraded to Creekside. Good: It had an excellent location (Right on railway avenue so you didn't have to drive to get to places). Our room had a nice 42'' flat screen TV and a mini... More

Although there were not a lot of extra's, we were mainly there to sleep. They have put a lot of effort into updating their rooms, and it shows! Very friendly staff, and an inviting pub attached to the Inn! Only complaints were some paint chipping and the water pipes were a bit noisy.

If you're looking for a cheaper place to stay this is it. It's a little outdated on one side (where we stayed) but everything was fresh and clean. We arrived at night and so the next morning we were amazed at the beautiful view from our window! They have updated the rooms on the creek side so if you are... More

Me and my family (two young children) just spent 3 nights at the drake inn canmore, the only thing i would have to say was lacking was a modern update for the washrooms, but the view from the balconies far beyond made up for that. the two ladies that helped us at the front desk went beyond what they needed...

As a rule almost every place I stay, I have enjoyed the stay wherever it is. Most of the time I have positive comments to say. I cannot say that for this motel. I will start with some things I did like about the place. It has a nice river flowing beside the motel and a good view of the... More

Though the weather didn’t cooperate we still loved our time in the Canadian Rockies .Living in Hawaii it is nice to remember that there are parts of the world where the weather does indeed change.
