“great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great place, in a perfect location! Only a short walk into downtown Canmore for food and drinks. # hot tubs, and a heated outdoor pool (albeit small). Full kitchen in the unit, and heated underground parking. I will be back for sure!!

Thank you for the review on tripadvisor! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our great location, both our outdoor hot tubs & outdoor pool which is open year round, the convenience of our full kitchens, and the underground parking. I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

The Lodges at Canmore is a condominium complex. This could be your “home away from home” for great daily excursions to all the tourist attractions in Banff National Park. The condominium offers all the amenities you may have in your own home such as a fully equipped kitchen, choice of one or two bedroom units, fully furnished living room, dining area with a full set of dinner ware, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, self parking under the building and more.

This is an ideal place for families or just couples who want more than just hotel room. Why stay here and not in the town of Banff? Because for the same price of a regular room in a nice hotel in Banff – you get a full condominium all for your self at Canmore. The town of Banff is only a twenty minute drive. Surprisingly, Canmore is a charming quaint town, with great restaurants, coffee shops and shopping centers.

Please be aware that most of the condo units at this property do not have air conditioning. This may not be a problem throughout most of the year, but may be a problem for the short period of time when it could be hot in this area. Check the weather statistics for the time of your planned trip.

You may also consider staying at an adjacent condo called Fire Mountain Lodge which does have A/C units and also has a nice mountain view, both items which the Lodges at Canmore lacks. Both properties are managed by the same company, Bellstar Hotels & Resorts.

We booked here for a couple of nights. Location is very good, and 2 bedroom unit was spacious and well equipped. But carpet was dirty, gas fireplace required service, front door was so thin all noises from hallway could be heard. Fortunately it was off season and not too many guests. But there are better choices in Canmore.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the location, and how spacious our two bedroom units are. We are currently doing periodic deep cleans of our suites and apologize for the slip in our housekeeping standards. I will take each of your points up with the head of the department.

The Lodges are conveniently located - right off Bow Valley Trail and only about a 10 minute walk to the downtown area. Location is one of the reasons we chose it for a short get-a-way to Canmore. However, that is unfortunately the only real positive about the place other than it is fairly reasonably priced for the size of the accommodation. The place requires some very significant upgrading. The carpets are worn, tattered in places and are generally dirty. The 27 inch TVs are old and the remote controls don't work very well. The sofa cushions sink far down from much wear. The free wifi tends to vary in signal strength and cuts out periodically (right in the middle of when you are doing something). Also, at least a queen size bed in the main bedroom would be much more comfortable. The balcony and the BBQ (which is a nice extra touch) were dirty. It is unlikely that the balcony is cleaned on a regular basis since there was a good deal of dirt and dust on the plastic furniture and on the BBQ. Needless to say, we didn't use either. Next time around, we will be checking out some other similar accommodations that are closely located to the downtown - even if we need to spend a bit more. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

We stay here once a year. The first time we chose this place was because of the number of people in our party. We got the 2 bedroom loft. We had my daughter, siblings and mom with us. It was great.Mom, sister and daughter played card games and went shopping while my brother and I went mountain biking for the day. Loved that we could come back and shower, relax in the hot tub and have a nice dinner in. Can also pack light and do laundry in suite. Have done this exact trip a couple times. Just this past weekend my husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. It was nice to be able to hike for the day, then come back to shower (nice to have 2 bathrooms) and get ready to hit the town for a fancy dinner. Love the unique shops in town and that theres a grocery store to stock the fridge close by. Quiet times are quiet, weight rooms do the job esp when you should be on vacation and relaxing :) and swimming is nice as well. I tell everyone I know to come here and cant wait for our next trip back

After our 3rd or 4th stay here, we have decided not to come back. Although we love the location, that was what kept us coming back, we could no longer deal with the filth. Food on the cupboards, dirt on the walls, hair in the beds, stains on the furniture, holes in the carpet, urine around the toilet, a cold hot tub! I can keep going but I have made my point. We did complain and management did give us a discount on our stay, and gave us the option to move rooms, but the other room we checked before we moved and it was just as bad. House keeping did come but it was past the point of no return. You could have spent hours cleaning in that room., GROSS! We are NOT Staying there again!

We have stayed 3 times at the Lodges at Canmore and will return. They offer very good value for the dollar in a location that is very convenient and quiet. I like having the washer, dryer, fridge, stove and microwave available to use.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a bbq, you may request this when booking.
