“Great place in Canmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

My wife an I had another great weekend a Blackstone. The suites are very spacious and are still in an excellent condition considering it has been a few years ago since we first visited.

We have read some resent reviews especially with issues around housekeeping. I think people must remember this is a condo resort with the emphasis on a spacious well equipped condo and is not a hotel in the truest form and consider the relative low price you pay for for such a great space.

We will definitely be back on our next trip to Canada.

Wow! Booked a 2 bedroom suite for one night and wished we had booked longer (this was a pit stop between Calgary and Jasper).

Such a spacious and comfortable suite and right on the doorstep of Canmore town (which is small but sweet).

Good secure underground car park. Full kitchen. Entire suite spotless. Highly recommended!

We visited Canmore in mid-September 2011. We were in a 2 bedroom suite (with another couple) for 3 nights then in a room with 2 queens for 3 nights.

Overall, the Blackstone was great. Awesome staff, accommodating when we made requests, nice heated pool & hot tubs.

Nicely appointed suites, same goes for the rooms though ours was a bit small.

Only negative comment is that housekeeping only comes on the 4th day - so we never got to see it.

We stayed at Blackstone Mountain Lodge for four days recently. The apartments have lots of space and really good facilities, everything was in working order and easy to use. A great place to stay for self-catering.

We travelled into Banff national park every day which was a few miles away but not an issue at all. We found all the services we needed in Canmore and at the apartment. Would recommend this if you want self-catering but with a bit of luxury.

Was here for meetings in mid September and was checked in to the wrong room. By wrong room, i mean an unmade room with two queen beds, rather than a 1 bedroom suite. This was fixed by the front desk staff.
I was surprised that there was no maid service after checking in for a 3 night stay and in a group of 14, however the room was quite attractive, with a full assortment of full size appliances including a washer and dryer.
The inroom coffee was horrible, make sure you bring your own as you are only getting one package no matter how long to stay. Bed was extremely comfortable but the room was cold. A call to the front desk sent up a building operator to reprogram the thermostat to no avail. The thermostat apparently needed a degree to program, not your run of the mill honeywell with a summer/winter switch on it.

Would I stay again? if the rate was right and i knew up front the challenges, probably

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the pool side, the view is of the mountain rather than the apartment next door

We are a family with 2 parents and 3 teens/young adults. We rented a 2 bedroom condo with full kitchen. For our needs, this place was close to perfect. Very clean, nice bedrooms, quiet, all the dishes and cutlery and pots/pans etc. Pool was a little dirty. Only problem was that they didn't tell us that they would replenish the supplies every day, so we went out and bought dishwasher tab etc. Also, first day they forgot to clean our unit, so we ran out of towels. When we called, they came within 10 minutes to replace the towels and supplies. They don't make beds etc. unless you ask them to (extra charge) but that's not an issue for us. This place is about 10-15 minutes drive from Banff, and about 1 hour from Lake Louise. For a family of 5 adults, it was really perfect for our needs, and reasonably priced. We toured the park every day, but came home to a pool and hottub, nice BBQs, and comfy beds at a fraction of the price of staying in the park. Overall, a very good experience!

Room Tip: Street side is quieter than pool side
