Really don't have anything bad to say about the stay. My wife and I stayed for two days. Lovely room, a/c works great! Soaker tub and a lot of channels on the TV. Very friendly staff as well. For the price it is a good place to stay during tourist Season. We would stay again!

Special mention for helpful receptionist who juggled bookings to allow us to stay an extra night without changing rooms. Great stay upstairs in room with one double bed and kitchen. Clean, quiet and convenient for downtown Canmore.

No problem recommending this motel! Dated but super clean and well taken care of. Keurig in room. Pillows plump and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Free parking. Great views from rooms. Walkable to everything. Laundromat on site. No hot tub or pool (bit of a problem if kids come with us next time!)

Canmore is better than Banff. Canmore is charming and small and unpretentious but the views and location are as beautiful as Banff. The Bow Valley Motel is right downtown on the main drag of Canmore - it has free parking and you can walk anywhere in town from the hotel, the location could not be Brewer. The hotel staff is...

The staff is so helpful, can't overestimate the value of all the advices I was given. The room is very clean, good location. Staying here for 2 nights and I am very happy with my choice of a hotel. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

It went great the room was clean and big enought for 2 person but its a bit old and it was really expensive for what it was. I asked for a room at the last level and the view from our room was great we don't have anytime negative about the hotel really but it wasn't a wow.
