“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I only stayed there one night but I must say it was a positive experience. No complaints. They offer a free continental breakfast but we opted for the "upgrade" to bacon-n-eggs breakfast for $6.30 per person, served in a nice restaurant in the building. It was delicious!

This place was a nice surprise since we had stayed in an Econolodge in another city the night before that was a dump. My expectations were very low. However, this place was very nice. We stayed in a first floor room that had a small patio. Stayed here 3 nights in July. Room was clean and staff was pleasant. Breakfast was good. Check in and out was smooth. Lots of places to eat nearby. The city center was close. Centrally located for visits to Banff and Calgary. The only downside to our visit was that the gas fireplace in our room didn't work. We were offered another room but we didn't feel like moving all of our things. When I checked out I had hoped they would give me some kind of credit but they said they couldn't. Other than that the stay was great. Just a general comment on a lot of hotels.....Get a TV that doesn't require a degree in Engineering to use.

Room Tip: Get a room in the back of the building to avoid road noise

The Econo Lodge makes a convenient overnight stop between Calgary Airport and the bus pickup to Lake O'Hara Lodge in BC. My family spends a week or more Hiking in tha area.

You can usually get a very good dinner right in the building At Chez Francois.They also serve breakfast.
We always have the early breakfast right by the office, a plentiful serve yourself breakfast.

The rooms are small &comfortable as are the beds. MM

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter.

After a long drive from Horse Shoe Bay BC, it was very nice to stay in a hotel with pleasant and courteous staff, and a very clean and inviting room to relax in. Along with the usual hotel amnesties there was also a small fridge, toaster, two burner stove top, and a few pots and plates. There was also a gas fire place. The hotel is right off of the main road and had an area to park our vehicle and camper. The continental breakfast was great as well. A great place to rest.

Room Tip: There are ground floors so if you need one I would suggest asking for one when booking a room.

Always unsure when you book through the internet. The staff that greeted us was wonderful and pointed out various things to see and do. The room was clean, well stocked, had a fireplace, a big screen TV and a jacuzzi - the perfect ending to our day long exploring. The only down side was the breakfast:it was just marginal and the coffee was aweful. The room that housed the meal was not designed for the number of people so everyonel took things back to their rooms so they had a place to sit.
Despite the food we would return to stay when we are in the area.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly and ask about the meal plan for breakfast.

Best thing about the place is free breakfast: fancy "iogo" yogurt, packaged hard boiled eggs (the omega 3 kind), tazo teas (the same kinds of bags you find at Starbucks), waffles, toast, cereal and milk, apple/orange juice and coffee. They only had like 5 tables in the breakfast room though - there were TONS of people trying to get breakfast and very little space.

The rooms, on the other hand, are relatively spacious and there's even a little Keurig/Tassimo-type coffee maker in the room.

Other good things: the bathroom is big. Lots of parking. Beds and pillows are comfy. There's also a flat screen TV.

Not so good things: screen doors definitely need some WD-40! Another reviewer mentioned this as well and they're totally right. Also, the door between our room and the next person's room wouldn't lock and we had to get staff to help us force it to lock. The bathrooms show some signs of age, and there was a bit of hair on the walls. It wasn't gross or anything, but these are just some things that remind you that, yes, you are infact staying in a "cheaper" place.

The wifi is also not the greatest - usually a hotel has a network and you log in online with the same password. Here, you get a sheet of paper with an individualized password for every single device you own (i.e. if you have an iPad, laptop, and phone and want to use wifi on all three, you need 3 different logins). There's no problem with getting many log ins from the front desk, but it's just annoying and unnecessary. I don't get why they have it. Are people driving by and mooching off the free wifi in the hotel? Why would they when there are McDonalds and other places with free wifi in Canmore?

The "going rate" before any discounts for a room seems to be around $129, so it's decent value for summer. They didn't charge extra even though I was staying with family and we had 4 adults in the room. Overall, decent stay for the money paid.

Arrived later afternoon and room ready. Close to restaurants and other facilities. Pleasant staff and well prepared room. Enjoyed our time there. Great coffee service in the
room and nice continental breakfast. Room a little small so arrive there early.
