“Excellent price and amazing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

I was skeptical about staying here because I read a lot of negative reviews about the cleanliness of the rooms and the sound of the train. But because of the price and how close it is to the National Parks, I decided to try it out. We rented the Cougar Chalet (we have 6 people, all adults).

Price: For 4 days, 3 nights we paid around $400...that's it. Extremely cheap compared to all the other million hotels we looked at in Banff and Jasper.

First the room: It was like a house. All 6 of us could sleep and walk around comfortably...there is a nice kitchen, 3 bathrooms (2 of which have showers), a fridge, utensils...basically everything that a normal house would have. The beds themselves were comfortable as well.

The train: There is a train that runs through the area, but it honestly isn't that bad at all. Just don't open your window fully and you will be alright...I actually did keep the window open for my entire 4 days stay and the train only woke me up once.

Cleanliness and staff: I was extremely surprised at all the people saying the rooms are not clean....our entire place was clean and tidy. The staff was amazing...I called them about 4 different times with questions and they never got annoyed. Very nice!

Overall, the chalets are amazing. There is a grocery store nearby (Safeway is where we shopped) and the National Parks are close as well (we were able to go to Kooteney,Banff, and Jasper!)

The next time me and my family go to hike Banff, there is no question about where we are staying...DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Couger chalets are big enough for 6 full-grown adults...there is also a couch in the living room whi...

Firstly, this place is excellent value for money. We stayed in a clean, nice, 3 bedroom unit for roughly $100.00 per night. As standards go, this is a pretty good place.

This being said, we have read some reviews about other units being less well-maintained and I can understand why these people were upset with their stay. However, ours was clean and well maintained.

Secondly, the Chalet is in an excellent location. It is in the middle of town. There is a pedestrian crossing behind the Chalet that allows people to cross the CPR tracks easily to the main street in town

Thirdly, there is a hot tub, pool table and foosball table on site. In addition to a BBQ.

Fourthly, the staff is helpful and friendly.

The downsides are the following:

Firstly, it is very close to the railway tracks. But so what. The windows are new and shut out most of the noise and what isn't close to the CPR tracks in Canmore?!

Also, I generally bring ear-plugs whenever I am not sleeping at home because there can be a host of noises that a hotel/motel guest experiences in the course of their stay.

Secondly, the hot tub and other amenities closes at 9:30 pm. This is a little bit early, but perhaps there is a reason for this (e.g. partiers who make too much noise)

I would suggest that the hot tub remain open, on a case-by-case basis for more mature individuals.

Thirdly, the wi-fi was not always reliable. I am not sure where the main router is housed, but perhaps the Chalet could improve the wi-fi service -- it needs to be improved for total satisfaction.

Generally speaking, I would recommend this establishment for the above reasons. We were thoroughly impressed.

Four adults shared a two bedrooms apartment. The location was great, plenty of places to eat within walking location. We had a night at Oh Canada Eh, dinner show which was really good. The rooms could do with a revamp but it was still a pleasant place to stay

Attracted to this place by an online coupon promo, sure was not disappointed. 2 floors, all 3 bedrooms on 2nd floor. Very spacious ideal for a family of 4 but not much more unless you are all single and drunk!

Room Tip: ask for the odd numbered rooms, away from rail track

We stayed at this propert for two nights during a girls weekend in Canmore. We were very pleased with our room. We stayed in the Railroad Retreat which had 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, kitchen, eating area and living room with fireplace.
It was great! Does it need updating? yes but for the same price as one night at a hotel for a regular room we got two night in a 3 bedroom suite. It did not feel like staying in a hotel at all, it was like staying in someones home. I found it to be clean with a few exceptions such as the chair in the living room. Everything could use a really good deep clean. The beds were very comfortable and we were not bothered bu the trains at all.We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go and the Front desk staff was very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the trains if you are a light sleeper.

This place is good value for money if sharing with friends. Our room was clean and everything worked. The hut tub is a good facility, and you can walk into Canmore town in 10 mins by following a footpath out the back of the chalets. The rooms aren't serviced during your stay, hence the cheaper price, but if you are looking for good self catering accommodation then you can't really go wrong.

Has to be the worst place we have ever stayed. The apartment was filthy, we spent as little time there as possible. We had booked 5 nights but left after the 3rd night. We used the oven and turned it off. The next morning it was still warm even though it was completely turned off! The patio door didn't lock. No air con. Uncomfortable furniture. Leftover food left in microwave from previous occupants. Food debris on carpet. It was just awful.

Room Tip: Book some place else!
