We have stayed at the CRC 3 or 4 times now.... It's a hit or a miss whether you get a clean or 'not-so-clean' unit! We have stayed in a bears den unit- sub basement, 2 bedrms, no real views - we had to request that the cleaning staff come and clean the dried up vomit of the walls (left by the previous occupant) in the bathroom. - no real apologies but the receptionist came quickly and cleaned it up!
The next time we stayed was in a mountain retreat (yes, we did stay here again) 3 bedrooms- views were great, didn't mind the train passing through (got used to it very quickly and the kids loved seeing them -1yr old and 3yr old). Unit was bit ragged and not very well cleaned again - we have stayed in 'newer' self-catering condos in Canmore, they may be cleaner but they are smaller, more expensive and not walking distance to the grocery stores!
Our last trip was in a Cougar chalet - these are more expensive because they have an extra bathroom and seem in better condition than the other units we have stayed in... The trade-off was that the balcony was facing on to the road so we chose to sit inside and enjoy our glass of wine!
Overall, these units are reasonably priced, BUT because they are all owned individually then it seems that there is differences in the quality and upkeep of each unit- I think the housekeeping standards are pretty low, but the bedding seems clean and I don't mind wiping down surfaces when I get there. The location is great because you can walk to the supermarket or into town and I LOVE the French bakery across the road for fresh baguettes, pastries and coffee... There is also a spa and an English pub within a couple of minutes walk;)
