“5 Star amenities for a 2 star hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We were in Canmore for the 24 hours of Adrenalin race so the location of the hotel (on the hotel strip away from the town centre) was OK. We had a vehicle so it didn't matter.

This hotel was GREAT! The beds were comparable to the best beds we had slept in (the most important criteria for me!) It was quiet and, being on south side of the hotel, we had a fabulous view of the mountains. The room was large and the jetted tub, microwave, fridge and fireplace (which we didn't use) were a bonus. Good service, very clean. 2 star towels and soap but make up remover mover and a big bath tub made up for that!

The breakfast was more than adequate (including hard boiled eggs, yogurt, whole wheat bread and the usual cereals). The only criticism is that the outside of the windows were very dirty (obscuring the mountain view!) The price was a bit steep (probably because it was a busy weekend) but I would highly recommend this hotel for the off season and skiing.

Room Tip: get a room on the south side of the hotel for great mountain views (on the northside I think you onl...

We stayed at this hotel on our way through Canmore. The price was good, and as we were arriving late and leaving early, our requirements were simply a clean room and a comfortable bed. The room was clean but the bed was very hard. The air conditioning was very efficient as they must have had a power outage before we arrived and the room was quite stuffy. Within a short time, it was comfortable again. The staff on check in was not terribly friendly, but on checkout the new person was great. Sorry, can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't stay for it. Overall, I would say this is a fine hotel for a stopover, but I wouldn't stay longer than the one night.

We recently visited the Canmore area with family members from the East and stayed for a night at the Econo Lodge. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the staff at the front desk were great. In conversation we discovered that Kyle was from the same town as us in Ontario and my sister-in-law worked with his Mom..so it's a small world and so nice to be able to discover these things thru great conversation. We intend to go back to Canmore and look for a retirement home and we will certainly be staying at the Econo Lodge. Keep up the great work!!

Maybe it's the "econo" in the name, or my preconceived idea, but I always associate econo with sub-par...not so at this hotel. We booked to avoid driving back home in between a two day golf tournament and we were happy with the room and the hotel over-all. Top floor room to avoid noise, and rear facing, it was clean and well appointed room with a corner fireplace two comfortable arm chairs. The bed was semi firm and linen was crisp and white, decent pillows as well. I'd happily recommend the Econo Lodge as a good value base hotel for a stay in the mountains!

We stayed at the Econo Lodge for just one night about two weeks after the Alberta Floods and the hotel seemed to be functioning normally despite the horrific stories we heard about the floods in the town - the Econo Lodge is well above the river level and wasn't affected. The room was huge, and very well appointed, by our normal travel standards, but the breakfast room is minute and forced many guests to take their breakfast back to their rooms. We should have asked, at the time, whether this was normal or a result of some post-flood changes, but we forgot. Not an issue for us - we arrived when there were still empty tables - and we would very happily return to the Econo Lodge.

Everything you need was in the room, it was clean and comfortable, but felt alittle small. Good value for your money. Had a problem with the tv remote but worked it out. Had to manually turn the tv on and off, the remote only worked to change the channel. First night was noisy with people in the hallway half the night and dogs barking..was at the front of the building but didnt hear much of any noise from the street or the Train.. Second night was quiter.

We booked this room in advance and let them know we would be arriving late. I chose this motel because it was pet friendly and was told we had a ground floor room. The front desk was very friendly, stating it was good we had a reservation as they were booked full. He had us in an upper room, but then was able to find us a ground floor room. The room we got was basic and clean, but the bed sunk a little to the middle and we could hear every sound from the rooms around. The bed above creaked everytime the person moved and we heard it. I can't help but wonder if they had put us in a better room, but we changed it. They were possibly over full because of the flooding and using more rooms than usual?

At breakfast, they had standard choices. The coffee was not so great for the first cup and didn't work at all when we went back for seconds and they had run out of bagels. They had fruit and yoghurt, cereal and bread, waffles and pancakes for toasting.


Looking at previous reviews, I feel bad about being negative and do wonder if they were just over extended because of the flooding.

I have to say, that for us, it was just an okay stay.
