“Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We stayed for 4 nights and found this to be an exceptional value in a high priced resort town. Our room was clean and had a fridge and microwave as well as dishes and cutlery. The hotel also offers a couple of gas grills for the guests to use although on some nights you might need to wait in line to use one.

Basic, clean rooms at a bargain price for the area, I would stay again without question.

This was my first experience of Canada and was all I expected. We stayed our first 4 nights at the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge with great views all around of mountains and pine trees. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and polite and made us feel very welcome. The room was spacious with an upstairs bedroom for the kids and a seperate bedroom for us adults. The room was cleaned daily . The kitchen area had a big fridge freezer and a kettle which was a fantastic after a long walk . Limited air conditioning upstairs. Hotel is just a 5 minute walk from a Safeway Supermarket for getting groceries etc. Unfortunately you can hear traffic noise from the nearby highway and need to keep windows and doors shut at night.
We had hired a car so driving to Banff was not a great distance as Canada goes, the views as you drive are just breathtaking. Canmore Town was a short walk away and we spent Canada Day celebrating with proud locals watching parades and marching bands'
Various sorts of resturants were local to the hotel, varying in quality and prices, all a short walk only across the road. Anybody new to Canada should observe road rules and cross the road at the crossings.
I enjoyed watching the very large goods trains(approx 100 trucks) passing alongside the mountains
If this is what the rest of Alberta is going to be like I can't wait to see it.

Room Tip: although the views are spectacular the roadside rooms can be noisy..

Good Value Motel, only had an apartment left and was given it at room rate. We were very happy with it, might be old, but rooms were clean. Staff were helpful and guests were friendly.

There's nothing fancy about the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge. It gets the job done. The TV is very small, but works. The decor is kind of dated, but if you are looking for a place to sleep, then it's okay.

I stayed during the busy summer months. I think CAD$148 (including taxes) is expensive for a place like this, but there wasn't much else available that had a decent rating.

We stayed in room 264. there was an overall appearance of a quick flip. There was large brown stains on the carpeting and all the sheets etc. are very well worn. On the day we checked out we were able to see into other rooms and obviously we got shafted as some were certainly cleaner. Property is nice and staff ok but ewww gross. There is way cleaner places to stay for the same money. We mentioned it upon checkout and received the so sorry, please pay now.

We stayed here many times. Actually, we always choose this lodge when we are in Canmore and we have not stayed anywhere else so far. Service is really good and staff is very friendly. Rooms are big enough, very clean and comfortable. We like location too as it is close (walking distance) to Safeway, Sobeys. And the rates are very economical.
We will be returning for sure.

Room Tip: Every room is nice, but I would recommended 1 bedroom apartment on south side.
