They have a large sign that says "rooms starting at $59.00" when I checked they were out of those rooms but had some for $102. Ended up staying and hotel was okay but the trains pass by all night long so if you are a light sleeper it probably is not for you.

Stayed here with our two teenaged daughters on a ski package special, which (factoring in what we would have paid for lift tickets) effectively brought the cost of our night's stay down to the $60 range.

This is not a five-star hotel, and it does cater to a lot of young families, so if you're hoping to bask in silent, pampered luxury, it's not for you. But, here's what we got for our $60:
- a decent-sized, scrupulously clean room, with two very comfortable queen beds
- a small fridge and microwave
- free wireless high-speed internet
- an excellent free breakfast buffet for the four of us, including hot items, fresh fruit and pastries, in a large, pleasant breakfast room
- a great waterslide (though the pool itself is little more than a splashdown area) and a small whirlpool
- 24-hour coffee station in the lobby
- pleasant, helpful front desk and housekeeping staff

Yes, it's located next to railway tracks (as are many Canmore hotels). Yes, you will occasionally hear small children with loud footsteps and voices in the hallway (the hotel caters to many young families). But, for crying out loud, people -- it's a budget hotel, offering decent rooms with generous extras, at rates about as low as you're likely to find anywhere in the Canadian Rockies. Quit yer compainin'!

The price was fantastic. I had a great sleep and a nice breakfast. I will recommend this hotel to friends and family. I will stay here again (in fact, we plan to make reservations before we leave). That's the bottom line.

This hotel was better then we expected as our standards are very high. The staff and rooms were great. The pool was the best as they have an awesome water slide. There is breakfast that was included and it had everything. Not just coffee and muffins. The shopping in Canmore is something lots of little shops. You are also only 1 hr. from Calagary if you need to go to the city, but you will not want to. You are only 20 min. from Banff which is also amazing.

Stayed for two nights while skiing at sunshine. It's very clean and the beds are very comfortable, if small. Rooms are very small, but the bathroom is clean and modern. Breakfast is not as great as mentioned here, but it's adequate and filling. There is limited hot food (only eggs and sausage - which neither of us can eat). Rooms have microwave and small fridge. Our too
faced the train tracks, but the trains didn't keep us up.

We will stay again if we just need a place to stay. Nothing special, but worth the $200 we paid for two nights.

I went during the Christmas holidays for four days with my two sons. The housekeeping staff did a good job cleaning the rooms. Desk attendant friendly. Great service. If there was any problem or question, I received immediate service! We had a standard room and it was clean, the bed was firm and the view of the Rockies were great. Yes, the train track was in view, but the Rockies captured my attention. Hotel is in a good location close too some restaurants and you can safely cross the track to get to Sobeys and Safeway--real handy! The slide was enjoyed by all! The hot tub was fine. I was told by general manager that they will be renovations to the pool area in March-April so that will be great to see improvement. The one treadmill was out of order but the rest of the fitness equipment worked well. It was great to have a tv and spring water in the fitness room. I asked a number of hotel guests and they gave me positive comments.
I liked the positive and friendly general manager of the Ramada. He took over the job as of Nov. 2010 and is really trying hard to make improvements from the previous owners. I liked everything but my only real suggestion is to add some whole grains in with the breakfast which is by the way quite varied with lots of options--it's more like a brunch. Thanks Sam (G Manager) for my memorable holiday and your hotel and staff had a part of it!

We stayed for 2 nights and took advantage of the ski and stay package that gave us each a lift pass for use at any of the big three. We went to Lake Louise where the lift pass is valued $80 but the best part is you get passes for each night you stay and they are good until the end of the season.

We stayed at the Canmore Inn (Ramada) for 4 days in September while visiting the national parks. The location on Bow Valley Trail is central in Canmore, a much better choice than staying at Banff for transportation and restaurants.
The hotel is located adjacent to the railroad track along with many others, so facing the track side may disturb some but not a problem with us. The best part of the hotel is the breakfast with excellent selection of cooked items. However, the room and service is a far cry from the Holiday Inn where we stayed along the trip.
We reported to the front desk our sink in the bathroom was not draining. Nothing was done. We had to put a coffee stir stick to pop it open to allow it to at least drained slowly. The towels were all damp without being dried thoroughly. The most uncomfortable part was the washroom, being so small and lack shelfing to the point of being very inconvenient. The mattress were too soft or old for a restful sleep.
All in all, we paid a lower end price from what we could find with a lower end accomodation. We suggest the staff with better hospitality training with dealing with customer, at least when compared to the reception at the Holiday Inn.
