“Nothing wrong with this hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

We spent one night in this hotel on our drive from Saskatchewan to BC. We picked it because it was one of the cheapest we found that still had availability. Because we were only staying for one night we weren't overly concerned about the actual quality of the hotel, but were pleasantly surprised by this one. Our biggest surprise was that it was a Ramada, we were looking for a Canmore Inn & Suites sign and almost missed the small one on the balcony.

Our room had some random stray hairs on the floor in the bathroom, but other than that it was clean. The rooms are nothing special but there's nothing wrong with them. We had a small bar fridge which was nice. It wasn't the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, but it was ok. I liked that there was a soft and a firm pillow to choose from.

There is a small pool with a waterslide and a hot tub. The waterslide is fast and tons of fun. The breakfast in the morning is nothing special but it's complimentary and there's plenty to choose from.

As for the train that I read a few comments about, yes it does run right behind the hotel. It also runs right behind a bunch of other hotels and right across the street from others and there's nothing that any of them can do about it. We had a room facing the street and didn't hear the train at all. Either there was no train that night or you can't hear it in street facing rooms. If you're concerned about the train, I suggest requesting a room that faces the street.

The Canmore Inn& Suites is of a quality you would expect of a member of the Ramada Group.

Location, it is well placed within walking distance of the town of Canmore, has loads of free parking, and is handy for Highway 1, to Banff, Lake Louise and Calgary (though that is an hour away).

The downside to the location is the Canadain Pacific freight line runs behind it and the highway runs in front. We had a front facing room, and were not disturbed by the highway at all, not sure how noisy the back facing rooms are.

Continental breakfast was included in the price and was very good, though the hotel is in two sections joined by an arch, so we had to go outside and back in to the breakfast room, OK in June, but not sure about mid winter.

The pool and hot tub are great, clean and tidy, we arrived at a weekend so it was being well used by families, but by Sunday evening we had it to ourselves.

The staff could not be more helpful, the coffee machine in our room did not work, so they changed it immediately, though there is free tea & coffee available all day at the coffee station near reception.

One small quibble, the safe deposit box in the room used a key not a digital code, so we had to take the key with us when we went out, plus the mechanism stuck sometimes…

We are halfway thru a 4 week trip through BC & Alberta and this is the best hotel so far.

Stayed at the Canmore Inn for one night as a "pit stop" while travelling home from Alberta. The room was clean, had all amenities and the staff was very friendly. My 4 year old loved the waterslide, and the continental breakfast had a good variety. The hotel is not fancy, but for the rate I thought it was a great value. I would stay here if in Canmore again.

Let's face it, rooms are expensive in this part of Canada. Finding the Canmore Inn was a real treat since we would have had a hard time affording some of the pricier luxury hotels in the area. We half-expected a dive, something good enough for sleeping, but no five second rule if you drop your bagel. instead we found a charming, friendly little hotel with a pleasant staff. The people were friendly, the rooms, clean, and the view...well everything has a view out here. The biggest downside is you are always doing a bit of extra driving getting in and out of the park. That said, I rather liked having a retreat from the busier town of Banff. This may not be for everyone, but if you're on a budget, this is a great option. Also, the complimentary breakfast was quite good--saving us time and money there.

My boyfriend and I where looking forward to a peaceful romantic getaway from the city. That is exactly what we found at the Canmore Inn. The staff was wonderful from check in until check out. The room was great, the bed was very comfortable. We definately will be back again.

I usually stay at another hotel when I visit Canmore. This time my company booked me here for some reason. My room was clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub area was a great way to relax after a long day of travel. The beds were comfortable which made it a great night sleep to get ready for my busy day ahead. I was a little disappointed there was no restaurant for a full breakfast in the morning, however, the full continetal buffet was just what I needed to prepare for the day.

I had a terrific nights stay at the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed could not have been softer. I snuggled in for a great nights sleep.
