“Great place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

I stayed there for 3 nights. There was 5 of us and we good 2 connected rooms and one of them got 2 levels. Just EPIC. Very comfy beds, clean, spacious bathroom and kitchen. Great views from the balcony. Great place if you would like to visit Banff or Lake Louise. Free Wi-Fi. Jacuzzi and sauna on site. Very kind and helpful staff. Definitely would like to stay there again in the future. Free parking. Few restaurants around and shopping mall few steps away.

We have stayed at this lodge more times than we can count over the past 5 years. Although it is not fancy, it is neat, tidy, and very comfortable. Price wise, it can not be beat! The owners and staff make this place what it is, fabulous! We will not stay anywhere else when we go to Canmore/Banff area. We will chose a different weekend over staying elsewhere!

our whole family of 6 adults & 4 children booked a 2 x family apartment which has a double bedroom & a loft.
it was off the highway but in a convenient location , near the town centre with many restaurents around. the supermarkets are about 10 minutes walk away & the cooking facilities in the apartment are good,
the property was very clean with a playground & bbq area & there is also a laundry room which makes it handy.
it was a great base for us to the Banff National Park where you can enjoy a hike to Tunnel Mountain & even a 26km bike ride from Canmore to Banff.
the only setback was the weak wifi strength.
it is highly recommended cos of the location & reasonable price.

Room Tip: maybe choose a room away from the highway.

Clean, Friendly, Accommodating, Kitchen, Comfortable Bed, Quiet. I came to this location because I was traveling with my small dog and they have a couple of rooms available for pets. However, should I return without him, which likely I will, I would definitely book here again. I might add that I have a sensitivity to dog hair and my little guy is a yorkie so that is not an issue. Most, if not all places I have stayed with my dog have odours and dog hair. Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge was spotless! Very impressive.

We just did 1 night here as part of a bigger tour and in transit further in to the rockies. Canmore is lovely and this lodge is within walking distance of the centre. It has clean rooms and was better than the first impression which was rather "motel" like. There is fresh coffee available in the office, a hot tub though it only opens at 10am isn't much use for a 1 night stay and there was a bbq, laundrette etc. We visited with friends in Canmore and they told us that when every other hotel is empty, the rocky mountain ski lodge always seems to be busy which says a lot. Just note there is no breakfast included in the price but there are plenty of places within walking distance, There's also a safeway in town in you need and provisions.

Top tip- Visit the sugar pine handicraft place while you're in town, if you're even vaguely into that kind of stuff! The quilts are something to behold and the staff are amazingly helpful. I was even invited yo photograph anything I wanted so great ideas once I get home.

My husband and two kids were travelling to Kelowna for a family wedding and stopped in Canmore on the way. We didn't have a reservation at a hotel and thought we'd try the RMSL and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were helpful and accommodated our request that included a street view room. They not only found us a room (on the spot) but gave us the loft/suite style. The room had everything we needed including a fully stocked kitchen, gas fireplace, loft (with two more beds and a bathroom), a queen size bed on the main floor and a full bath. A balcony facing the street where we could enjoy the mountain view and activities. There was a hot tub (very clean) and a center courtyard for children to play. BBQs are provided to guests upon request. There is also a liquor store on the premises but it closed when we were there. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay again and recommend this lodge to others.

Stay here in Canmore! You can drive to/from Banff in just a few minutes, and Canmore is a cute little town without the tourist hoards of Banff. Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge is a great place to stay. Friendly, helpful front desk staff. Had a huge room with a high ceiling, two beds, and full kitchen with dining table. Free wifi. Very clean. Quiet, despite being near the highway. Highly recommended.
