Just back from a four night stay at Sunset Resorts in Canmore. The Word "resort" in the title is a little misleading, suggesting, at least to me, that it is a destination in itself. It is not. It is a good, relatively inexpensive place to stay while exploring the Canmore area.
The suite is reminiscent more of a normal residential condo than hotel accommodation. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with a balcony which looked out on the adjacent Grand Rockies Resort, but with great mountain views to the left and right. A great place for morning coffee. It also had a natural gas barbecue which we used for supper one evening. The suite was clean, had required utensils and crockery in the kitchen and had the expected appliances. Other than the toaster which burned one half of the bread while leaving the rest unheated, they worked fine. The living room had a fireplace, flat screen tv and DVD player. There is free wifi in the suite though the signal was a little weak at times, fine for browsing and email, but don't plan on playing games or doing much downloading. The bedrooms were adequate, though not large, while the laundry room was enormous and could easily accommodate a child's travel bed if needed.
Sunset does have a small fitness centre and games/pool room, but not a lot of other amenities. Other reviewers have commented re. pool use. It is as the resort's respondent has stated. Sunset does not have a pool, but has an arrangement with the neighbouring Grand Rockies resort that Sunset guests, who wish, may use their pool for a fee. At time of writing the fee was $50 week/condo. All residents of the condo are included in that $50, quite reasonable for a family for pools, slide, indoor-outdoor hot tub, kiddies pool and towels.
Sunset is well located with restaurants, stores pubs etc in easy walking distance. Downtown Canmore is a walkable distance, but perhaps not for small children. However the downtown area has plenty of free parking.
In summary, if you want a base to self cater while you explore the Canmore area, Sunset deserves a look. However, if you want pampering in a luxury environment, you should look elsewhere.
