I was a little bit hesitant to book a couple of rooms here. But I read the recent reviews and decided to go with Bow River Inn. I am glad I did. Very nice rooms. Good quality furnishings, comfortable bed. Not a scratch on the walls, not a mark on the floors. Lots of room, well laid out. Hot water... More

The whole experience was great. I was late to arrive, the staff gave me a confirmation call to double check if I was on my way. Check in was super easy and really pleasant. Room was fantastic and super spacious. New carpets, new flat screen TV's, coffee maker/microwave/fridge, yes towels and toiletries provided. The provided breakfast was all anyone needs;... More

Its evident that the new owners are making a conscious effort to improve the quality of accommodation at this hotel. After reading some of the reviews i was hesitant to book here in fear of running into the same problems as previous guests, however that was certainly not the case. Our first impression was outstanding as the young woman at... More

My husband and I were travelling with our dog and decided to stop here for the night. The price and the continental breakfast was the draw. As we have a dog, we were initially just grateful the room was non-smoking but the dog discovered an old used fork under the bed, with gross food with it, that could have made... More

We stayed in a kitchenette for 3 nights. Many working people stay here, and the barbecues provided were often in use. It surprised me how quiet the evenings were - partly because so many people were up and out before 7. (A neighbour said weekends could be very noisy, with young men drinking and partying.) The room was clean and... More

Great location and affordable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was clean. No extra shampoos or lotions like most motels offer. No face cloth must bring your own, I guess. Beds were very comfortable. Toilet was not bolted to the floor and it made a lot of noise rocking back and forth while using it. This made it difficult... More

Passing thru on my way to BC and stayed the one night on a recommendation from a friend. The person in the office (manager/owner?) was courteous and helpful in suggesting a few local places to have supper. The rooms are located in 2 single single story classic motel style buildings that allow you to drive up to your door. The... More

Not a Bad place all in all. For the money ive stayed in much worse. No sign of bugs but if you look for nasty grime you will find it.id recomend your own bed sheets and towels. Was quiet and a place to sleep the snow storm out. It worked for us and if needed again i will go back.
