“Nice place, great location and excellent hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Up from the US for Memorial Day holiday and had an amazing visit. Felt very welcome despite out late checkin and things just got better from there. The views, hikes, wildlife and restaurants were very nice in the area and Creekside Country Inn was the perfect base of operations. Had great recommentations on sights to visit and made the most of our stay. Our first visit to the area in about 10 years, but I don't think we'll be able to stay away so long again.

Thanks for a memorable trip.

Room Tip: Steep stairs, might be a problem for the infirmed.

Comfortable updated rooms with that classic rustic Canmore feel. The hotel is on the other side of the highway from the town centre, but easy enough to get to and from. Many good restaurants in the area. Would return to Creekside.

We had five nights in this very cute inn. It was very clean and every room has a mountain view. It is very quiet being a few minutes from the centre of Canmore. There is plenty of food on offer at the serve yourself continental breakfast, really enjoyed the blueberry scones.

Room Tip: If the budget will stretch go for a loft room, gives a bit more room to spread out. There is also a...

We stayed at Creekside for just a single night but could happily have stayed a bit longer! We arrived around 2 in the afternoon after stopping for a quick nearby hike.

The sign on the front desk asked us to dial a number if nobody was there, which we did and were promptly and cheerfully greeted by Erik. We were given the information on the Inn, including breakfast times, locked door rules, etc and were then quickly in our room.

The room was tasteful, basic and clean. The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but quite functional. The only complaint that I would have is that the heating system is loud so if you are a light sleeper, you will want to consider the use of the extra blanket in the room and keep the heater off in the night.

We decided to leave the car behind and walk into the townsite. We found a nice pub/restaurant right next door and stopped for a "warm up" before continuing our trek. FYI - It only took us 30 minutes to get to Main Street from Creekside!

The breakfast room is bright and cheerful with loads of windows to admire the view. The fare was simple with cereals, yogurt, fruit, fresh (& warm!) muffins & scones, juice, teas and coffee. Erik popped in and quickly retreated to allow guest to enjoy their breakfast.

After we enjoyed breakfast, we packed up and headed out. Instructions at the front desk asked us to drop the room key in the basket on our way out.

A very pleasant stay overall. We will come back if the opportunity presents itself.

We arrived late after the 8PM check-in time and so didn't expect to see any staff (the key was left out in a mail box for us to open and find the room). The next day, I went down for the 8-9AM breakfast, expecting at least one person tending to the reception and/or food, but there was no one. It was a like a ghost had come in to set up breakfast and vanished before anyone woke up. This lack of service staff continued for the entire 3 day stay. Even when we checked out at 11AM, there was no one. This didn't impact the quality of stay at all, except for maybe one moment when we wanted a coffee refill. The rooms were comfortable and kept clean. The lobby/ground floor area was cozy and inviting. Recommended for any rocky mountain travelers.

We spent one night at the Creekside Country Inn on our way back to the airport. The Creekside Country Inn is in a very quiet location and is somewhere between a Bed and Breakfast and a small hotel.

The room was large and very comfortable - We stayed in a few different places while we were travelling around the Rockies and this was definitely the most nicely decorated. There was a downstairs area with a lounge and bathroom. The bedroom was on the mezzanine floor. The only slight issue was that the blanket on the bed was a bit dusty and made us both cough. However we swapped it for the spare one in the cupboard and that was fine. The rest of the room was very clean though.

This was the only place we stayed at which included breakfast in the price. As we needed to leave quite quickly the next day, this was very welcome and we were very pleased with the wide choice on offer.

Overall we were very happy and would stay here again if we are in Canmore.
