Stayed here for the second time. This time brought along son and gfriend. All stayed in one room 2 beds. Great location, good clean room and comfy beds. Ate in pub next door with 10% off. Quiet location just off main road. Right by the river and all the shops. Staff very helpful and friendly

It was very difficult to find a place to stay near Banff, but we found this place. It was not cheap, but it was the best we could find for the least amount of money. We were very disappointed with the accommodations. We were given one of the rooms in the parking area across from the office. It was far...

Spent one night here. Chose because was among the less expensive in the area and close to downtown. A good place if you want to be close to Main Street, have drinks or dinner downtown, or walk along the creek. I didn't have a creek view room, but I could imagine they would be nice. The front desk staff was...

This place is absolutely terrible. The beds sinks in too much and squeaks a lot. The furnitures here are old, dirty and unstable! The only good thing about it is the lovely view of the mountains but that was ruined by the dirty windows. Also the tv was one of those old boxy ones that stunk. Literally it smells really...

The photos you see online lead you to believe that The Drake Inn is nestled in a lovely spot along a creek mountainside. Indeed, there is a lovely creek along the hotel, but the hotel is nestled between two busy, noisy streets. As the inn does not have air conditioning, you are acutely aware of the noise. The mountains are...

Room was absolutely terrible carpets look like they have not been vacuumed or cleaned in a very long time. Hair on pillows and sheets was not impressed at all. No plug ins anywhere and extension cords running across the room. The room is so outdated it was like walking back into the 70's. The only positive thing to say about...

If you are looking for hotel to enjoy the views and amenities pass on this hotel. The hotel caters to a party crowd that is prowling the common areas at all hours of the night.

This hotel is overpriced for a small noisy room (bar with loud music underneath). It was clean and comfortable. Office staff leave in the evening. The room is shabby and outdated but clean. Not worth $178. Restaurant staff very nice and bartender exceptional

didn't stay here but enjoyed good food and service sitting on the deck enjoying the view of the mountains. Ate here with the family one evening while staying in Canmore. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I enjoyed the beer.

2 nights in the supposed best room ($240 ish for 2 nights). Outdated, not particularly clean, very rundown. Person underneath was smoking weed and it stunk our room out. Fairly quiet, nice view.
