It's really not that good of a hotel but it is really not that bad of a hotel either. When I checked in I got upgraded to Creekside.
Good: It had an excellent location (Right on railway avenue so you didn't have to drive to get to places). Our room had a nice 42'' flat screen TV and a mini fridge (I don't know about what the other rooms had, I had a creekside room which is a little more extravagant). The creekside view is absolutely stunning.
Bad: No air conditioning, just a plain old stand up fan (It gets really hot in Canmore during the summer.). People are allowed to smoke outside of their rooms (The smoke sometimes blows into your room (I had this problem) ). Limited parking access (If there is a party, you can almost never find a spot). Poor continental breakfast (Only toast, cereal, milk, and coffee. And it is in the office of the hotel). On the bottom floor everybody can see you. The beds creak very loudly.
Overall: Its not a bad hotel to stay in, but if you can do better for the same price or even just $10 or $20 more, take it.
