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.

They have bedbugs - they are not spiders. After discovering that husband got transferred to another room and offered a bottle of wine as an apology. What about all his clothes???? No offer was made to clean them or dry clean them. Also the switchboard often didn't answer and sometimes the room phone didn't work. All n all I'd say... More

I am a regular visitor to Cochrane and always go to Bow River Inn each time. Friendly and helpful staff. I’ve seen the owners/staff doing regular upkeep and renovations and I have a pleasant stay each time I travel through! Excellent value compared to any other hotel in town. Highly recommended!

Absolutely great place to stay. My girl friend & I stayed here for 2 nights. The front desk staff were friendly, our room was clean & comfortable and I really liked the convenience of having a kittchenette. I truly enjoyed my stay.
