“It was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed a couple of nights at the Inn to do some exploring of Kananskis country. Positives are that it's comfortable enough and the room was pleasant and quiet. It was good being a little outside the town but a walk in (30 mins or so, but easy enough)

But we felt it was a little overpriced for what you got. And the service really could be better.and the welcome warmer. Certainly, you could get information if you asked for it, but nothing more was volunteered than that by the staff. No-one really knocked themselves out or acted as though service and warmth might be something you offer as part of being in the hospitatilty business!

For example, returning from dinner one evening, we met up with a couple who'd left their keys in their room and were locked out - there was no-one at reception to help and when they tried the cellphone number, there was only a recording. Eventually it did get sorted and they weren't without a bed for the night - but I would never expect to be in that situation when staying somewhere, I consider having someone available to help is a minimum level of service.

There's no folder of information in the room on how things worked or about local amenities or dining possiblities (though a comprehensive information rack downstairs) TV reception was very poor - if this matters to you, it might be worth specifying when booking as apparently it's better in some rooms. However, paradoxically, wi-fi recepton was fine in our room which was a plus.

In terms of eating, there's a pleasant enough pub/restaurant next door - the Iron Goat - with a terrific patio with views of the 3 Sisters mountains which makes for a good easy option if you don't want to walk/drive into the town centre.

We don't regret staying at Creekside Country Inn, but probably wouldn't stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with goof wi-fi or tv reception when booking, if that matters to you

We recently stayed here. The rooms were spacious, with air conditioning, too! The bed was comfortable, the bath facilities good. We were in the loft, which was a little warm, even with the air on, but it was a hot spell, so to be expected. We really liked having the separate 'living room' from the bedroom. We loved the breakfasts, as many have said, especially the scones - best I have ever had! We enjoyed sitting out front in the evening looking at the mountains. All in all, a great place to stay! We really liked Canmore. It is a nice little town.

room was nice, glad we had AC as it was super HOT. TV was small so watched the Rider game down in the sitting area. breakfast was ok but not as much as others we've been at. Would stay here again. Ate over at the Iron Goat pub down the street and nice hikes to the Hoodoos.

Room Tip: our room was up stairs so you don't want to be hauling a bunch of luggage.

We stayed here three nights in the late spring/early summer season. The hotel layout and decor were perfect, and provided a very relaxing environment. Our room was quite large, and provided an amazing view of the mountains. Everything is very well kept. Breakfast was quite tasty, with a mix of warm (oatmeal, fresh baked goods) and cold foods.

A courtesy computer with internet is located in the lobby, and there is a wifi connection. The staff was incredibly friendly, and was quite eager to point us towards local scenery and attractions that we would have otherwise missed. They are quite enthusiastic hosts, and helped us get the most out of our vacation in Canmore.

We felt welcome and almost "at home" as soon as we entered the Inn. The construction and decor had a warm and cozy feel to it. Our room was neat, clean and provided an excellent view of the mountains. Eric, our Host, could not have been more helpful, from assisting us with our luggage to recommending a place to have dinner. When having your breakfast, be sure have a scone!

It was a plesure to stay here. Huge rooms! The upgraded room with a loft would easily work for a small family. We just had the double which was plenty for us. Hotel is ten years old but looks brand new. Extremely clean and well maintained. The building was really nice, but our best memory is our host, Eric. He was really helpful and knowedgable for the area. The room included breakfast which was perfect.

Room Tip: They tend to be full from June-September, so book early. This is a great place to stay! Rooms on t...
