“"High Life"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2010

The Rocky Mountian Ski Lodge is a great place to stay if you are going to Canmore. But beware of the front desk staff , we had issues with the older gentalmen whom could not find our reservation and later on in the evening when we when to get ice we had found him getting high! no wounder he couldn't find our reservation. When we check out we had mentioned this to the lady working and she said "that dosen't surprise her". Over all The price is great and the rooms are super clean and the housekeeping is very friendly and welcoming! if only is wasn't a crack-house on the side!

We visit here whenever we can get away from the city. Close to Tim Horton's, walk to restaraunts, and wake up to breathtaking views. The price is always right, the place is quiet, ther'e a playground for my daughter and the suites are huge. What more could I ask for?

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel in the second week of June. We got a really good price : 3 nights at 64$. Staff is really nice, they had move us in another room before we arrived because there were some people partying around the room they had booked for us. The hotel is close to the Highway so this is really easy to go to Banff and it is closed to Groceries, shops, restaurants in Canmore Village. Our room had a Fireplace, fridge, microwave. For us, it surely worth it!

I'm not sure I would have paid the regular price for it (around 134$ i think).

I was very pleased with our hotel. We wanted a kitchenette and were happy to find a very clean facility, fully stocked with the kitchen equipment we needed. The rooms are updated, modern, clean and rustic (in a nice sort of way). We only stayed one night, but after seeing the room, we wished we would have booked longer. I would definitely stay here again.

First off this is a great location from which to explore the Rockies. We paid CAD$134, which with the dreaded tax comes out at CAD150 (£83 at current rates).
The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are very good (no foreign students as a previous visitor wrote?).
The downside for us was the plumbing. It is so noisy on the ground floor that sleep is often interrupted. Unfortunately we must have had a lunatic above us first night as the water never stopped running. I think they must have run a bath at 3am!
Fair play to the manager, when he heard the noise after the second night he moved us pronto and although there was an improvement, a peaceful night's sleep for my daughter in the living room proved elusive. The refrigerator was also very loud unless the door was left open, which we had to do on the last night there.
I may stay here again but would be tempted to pay extra for a first floor room, then again if there was another accommodation close by for around the same price I may be tempted to try elsewhere.
Bonus for us was the rabbits and ground squirrels that inhabit the locality - highly amusing at times. Also take the river float tour, very good.

We stayed here in October 2008. Our room was spacious,nice and clean. The bathroom was fairly clean.There was a coffee maker with free coffee and tea bags.The best thing was the location. As we stepped out of the room we were surrounded by mountains on all sides. It was beautiful.There was a breakfast place just behind the lodge and a couple of other restaurants within walking distance.Downtown was about five minutes by car.
The service was friendly.
Overall good value for money.

Even though the hotel is slightly dated it is very reasonably priced and everything is clean. The staff was friendly and everything in working order.
