1st off our stay was unusual. Canmore was hit with the flood of the century and we were actually isolated in Canmore for 2 days. No one could get out or in.
Kudos to Wyndham for not charging 2 extra night stays. It was a nice gesture and much appreciated. The staff was responsive to everyone’s on-going questions about the state of emergency and they kept a level head about themselves
Aside from the flood issues, this is a good place to stay. Canmore is a better site than Banff or Lake Louise as there are great restaurants, things to do in Canmore. Canmorians (?) are really into the biking, hiking, etc.. so if you are too, this is the place to go. Banff and Lake Louise is more expensive although you do need to visit them.
The room we had was the smallest 1 bedroom facility we have ever been in. It was comfortable enough. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen although very small had a full fridge, convection microwave, stove top and a dishwasher (note: no oven). That’s all we really needed.
Everything worked well. There were enough “tools” (spoons, knives etc…) for the 2 of us. The rooms and the facility itself was quite quiet. There is not much activity on site – a pool, a hot tub and a TV room. Not that that matters for us, I just raise it here for others to beware if you have children. I did miss not having a bar nearby. You do have to drive into town for shopping and restaurants. It’s not far, just something you have to plan for.
Don’t pay for the internet. That’s a pet peeve of mine, paying for hotel internet service. There are 2 computer stations in the lobby but the internet connection is terribly slow.
In the end, it was a good location and timeshare. The area is beautiful and there’s lots to do in both winter and summer. You are only an hour away from Calgary and you can use this is a jumping point to go farther into the Rockies. The rooms and facility were kept very clean, there’s free parking and everything works as it should.
