Excellent accommodation, location and price. Clean rooms. Drake Pub available for meals at 10% discount. Free parking (first come first serve). They will be renovating rooms, I've been told, so prices may go up accordingly. But we were very happy with the room we had as it was (second floor)

Hotel is older and could use updating, but the rooms were clean and location was good. There was a balcony overlooking the creek behind the hotel, and downtown was an easy walk around the corner. Restaurant/pub on site was good and convenient as well. The rooms do not have AC, so be aware of that if it is a hot... More

The location is great, very walkable and that's where to good ends. The room was stifling hot. There was a balcony and even though we had the window open, the room was still very hot. There was a fan which blew around hot air, again, a ceiling fan would have been beneficial. The mattress and pillows were terrible and the... More

The Drake is the ideal spot in Canmore to sit and watch the day go by. Myself and my wife (we're tourists) had the pleasure of sitting on their patio, taking in the views (WOW), dining and having a cool cider and just watching life go by. Situated at the top of the main street of Canmore - it came... More

The room was clean and comfortable and the bar attached offered good food ( 10% discount for guests). The location is excellent. We only stayed one night as a quick walk around town the next day resulted in us finding a better deal just up the road. Shop around before you book in.

We booked the Drake Inn during a weekend of skiing and snowshoeing because it was one of the cheaper accommodations in Canmore. However, we really didn't enjoy our stay. The room was outdated and dingy, and there was a lot of noise coming from the bar downstairs late at night. I would not recommend this place if you're looking for... More

I was here last weekend to see some friends, New Soul, play. What a great time! Packed to the rafters with good people and a great time had by all. I also had the lamb burger before the show and even though it was super busy, the meal arrived in good time and good quality. Would recommend!

Just spent a weekend in Canmore and had an opportunity to enjoy dinner at The Drake. Not sure why, but my expecations were quite low. There was karaoke going on inside and the place looked a bit rough. However, the service was excellent - very fast and courteous and the food was fantastic! Most of it seemed genuinely homemade. I...

Was on business and stayed here last spring for a night with my wife and our cat. The room was pleasantly appointed and large. The bed was on a pedestal so our cat could not hide under it and it was an enjoyable evening for all. You just have to make sure they know when you book that you are... More

Went here for some food on a Sunday afternoon. The server wasn't the happiest gal but that can happen any where. I had the lamb burger and it was outstanding The bun was fresh and the meat was tasty it had a feta cheese and mint sauce topping. The fried were crispy and tasty. The wife had the chicken burger...
