“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2011

I went in with a two star expectation and came out with a 3 star experience. Surprising value provided in shoulder season for this little motel. Most delightfully this was a property in Canmore that didn't feature the sound of trains rumbling through the night. Stayed near the center of the property. Clean, quiet and quaintly dated motel room that met my overnight needs and left me with a smile from the picnic benches for morning coffee. Thanks for the great stay.

the rooms are very clean as is the hot tub. This is our second stay at this place and we would definitely return.
We have recommended them to our friends.

We spend really great time with our family and our friends. Kids were very happy to have 'own' room and TV. When kids are happy, then parents are happy too. The next time we'll go to your hotel again and will recomend it to our friends.

We booked this place for our community club winter weekend trip and could not have made a better choice. RML's different room types - from a single room to a huge two-bedroom apartment - met the needs of all our group members - those travelling single, travelling as couples and travelling with children. As others have pointed out here, this place is not flashy, it is simple, comfortable and friendly. Our family of three was delayed for one night at Red Deer because of the heavy snow, and even though I called RML after the check-in time, they did not charge us for the missed night - and that despite their official policy which requires you to cancel at least 48 hours in advance. A pleasant surprise, knowing that some places would charge you the first night (if not two) no matter what. These people truly care about their guests and they deserve praise even if the lodge had nothing else to offer (which is far from true).
Our family of three stayed in one of the two two-bedroom suites at RML. Just after I walked into the suite I was impressed with it size. All the rooms were spotless, the kitchen recently renovated with a new large steel-colour fridge. Although some kitchenware (pots and pans) had visible traces of use, that was not a big deal as this frequently happens in places with a much higher price tag. The living/dining area of our suite had a huge table which accommodated all our group when we got together for a potluck dinner after a day of skiing. Before the meal, some of us also enjoyed the hot tub and sauna. I wish both were a bit bigger (and the sauna a bit hotter), but overall we had a very pleasant experience.
We will be back!!

Our family, friends and ski club members have been staying at the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge for many years and it continues to be a very user friendly place to stay, both summer and winter. There is a good variety of room types, and they are clean, well appointed and conveniently located. The Lodge is well suited to family units and groups and the availability of the ski room and "meeting" room is much appreciated. The staff is exceedingly friendly and very efficient.

We stayed at the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge for 4 nights, and could not have been happier with the location or the staff. Always friendly, helpful, and accomodating. We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. Minutes from downtown, and so close to the mountains. The pet friendly part was really important for us, and we found off leash parks and trails close by.

Too bad it took so long for me to discover this place! All these years of staying in this place or that place around Canmore and Banff, and finally we gave the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge a try. Well, the search is over, because after staying here, we'll never go anywhere else.

It's run by people who respect cleanliness and order. Everything is clean, and in excellent repair considering that the hotel has been around for 40 years. The sauna and hot tub were spotless. Our (2) rooms were as well. The kitchen was well-stocked, with everything the web site promised. Beds were comfortable. Thermostats were responsive.

The layout – low-rise buildings surround an inner courtyard – is conducive to a peaceful visit. Within the courtyard, you can see a 360-degree view of the mountains. And the circular nature of the layout protects from unwanted noise – even when trains go by about a block away, you can hardly hear them.

They also have apartment loft units.

The prices are so reasonable (by Banff-Canmore standards) that you almost think they're running a charity for travelling families.

It ain't flashy or brand new. But it's one of the best values I've ever experienced...anywhere.
