My wife and I spent two nights in a king room on the second floor in the middle of the Econo Lodge during our recent trip to the Canadian Rockies. We also had friends that were traveling with us and stayed in a similar room in the motel. We thought the room was a very good value, particularly during the height of the summer tourism season.
The room was quite and clean. Our room had a gas fireplace that we did not use. There was a flat screen TV above the fireplace. The king bed in our room was comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom was nice and very clean. The high speed Wi-Fi worked well in the room. However, there was a lack of electrical outlets in the room available for charging our iPad and phones. The climate control for the room worked reasonably well. There is no elevator access to the second floor, so we needed to carry our bags up a winding staircase. The view from the room was not great, but we were not paying the price for a mountain view room.
The free continental breakfast was acceptable with mostly cold items (cereal, juice, pastries, etc.), and coffee. We did have breakfast one morning at the adjacent Chez Francois Restaurant, which was excellent. The location of the Econo Lodge is very convenient, easy to find and get to from Canadian Highway #1, and close to downtown Canmore.
Try the adjacent Chez Francois Restaurant for breakfast. Request upstairs room on back of hotel.
