“Very Nice!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This was our first time staying at the Best Western in Canmore and it was very enjoyable. We have stayed in Canmore in the past and when we return it will be to the Best Western. The rooms are very spacious and very clean and the beds are super comfy. When the cleaning staff saw us come out of the room they stopped to say good morning, asked how the room was, is there anything we needed, etc...they were very friendly!! The overall appearance of the hotel was great, with everything being clean, clean, clean! The breakfast was very delecious and had a great assortment of hot and cold breakfast food. Great value for a weekend getway!

Stayed here for a second time for company xmas party. Rooms are very nice with a fireplace. Some have balconies. Pool and waterslide are nice, but got back from dinner too late to use. Beds are very comfy. Breakfast had a nice cheese omlet, pancakes,waffels sausages, fruit, yogurt and the usual toast, muffins, danish. Very good.

Room Tip: Top floor with a balcony, not sure if its more expensive

My husband and I live in Calgary and stayed one night at this hotel for a weekend getaway. Although only a one hour drive away, it was wonderful to visit Canmore and be up close to the amazing view of the Rockies. Our room faced the front of the hotel and had a small balcony. Two comfortable queen beds, a gas fireplace (nice added touch!), a small fridge and microwave made the room very nice. The bathroom was spacious and clean.

The check-in was friendly and efficient and our room was ready by 130pm.

We did not use the pool, waterslide or jacuzzi but did get a chance to walk from the hotel. The Canmore Towne Centre is a 5 minute drive away from the hotel. You are well situated on the edge of town with amenities close by.

Close to the Trans Canada Highway and Banff National Park, the Best Western Plus Pocaterra Inn is a lovely place to stay. Clean, modern, comfortable surroundings. Our room was on the third floor facing the mountains, such a beautiful view. The gas fireplace was a nice feature of our spacious room.

Chocolate chip cookies and ice tea served in the lobby were most appreciated. Staff at the hotel were also great. There is a very nice pool with a slide and jacuzzi. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

There are nearby stores, fuel and fast food outlets, a walkway in front of the hotel and a short drive into the Town Centre. I would highly recommend this lovely Hotel in this lovely Town.

We stayed here two nights during a recent trip to the Rockies. The location is great, a short drive to downtown and an easy twenty minute drive into Banff. We had a room at the back of the hotel with a view a great view of the mountains. We experienced no road noise, and although occasionally we heard the train we weren't disturbed but it. The room itself was clean with comfortable beds There was a fireplace and a small kitchen area with a fridge and microwave which was useful. The breakfast was included which was OK.
A negative for me was that there was no in room safe. Although there is one available at reception, that is not always convenient. All in all a good alternative to staying in Banff.

Very nice stay. We splurged on a deluxe room on the top floor for the quiet (no kids, no footsteps above you.) That worked great. Even a light sleeper had no problem (even the nearby train wasn't a problem for us).

The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was good - included eggs, so that's better than "continental" that was advertised. They had a microwave, which was great for putting a little more heat into the "hot" items. But (here's the one Bad thing) on the days that there was a bus trip (common), breakfast was picked over. No eggs, no fruit, etc. The dining room lady just couldn't keep up with the traffic. The reason I think it's so neglectful is that management knows about the busses in advance. They make extra money from the 50 - 100 people, so should be willing to put on an extra cook or server for 2 hours to allow the guests to actually find food at the otherwise convenient breakfast buffet.

PS. the pool was fun ... you gotta try the corkscrew slide. The hot tub was spacious and the jets were super powerful! The desk staff (at least the experienced one) was wonderfully helpful. Oddly the parking spaces were too narrow. Found that throughout my Alberta travels.

Room Tip: if you can afford it, corner room on top floor overlooking 3 Sisters (mountains) is nice.
