“Great Hotel - Magnificent Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2011

My wife, dog and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We went for a quiet mountain getaway and that was what we got. Our room was nicelt appointed with a fireplace. We had a lovely view out of our window. The staff were very helpful and suggested a very nice restaurant. I would go back to this hotel again

I stayed at the Best Western Pocaterra Inn during a 4-day getaway and loved the place. My room was quiet and had the touch and feel of a mountain retreat. Finally a hotel with top notch WIFI, - the connection was stable fast and never expired during my stay. Pool and hot tub are also worth while mentioning. The sauna did not warm up to my likings.

Breakfast was crowded every day. The selection was OK, nothing fancy but certainly more than sufficient. I really appreciated the hot beverage that is available during the main check-in hours.

What I liked best is the central location. You can walk to most places and some trail heads in Canmore and it is only a short drive to Banff and the National Parks.

Overall the Best Western Pocaterra Inn was a great choice for me that I can recommend without hesitation.

Nice rooms, friendly staff.Good continental breakfast.Clean.Could use a updated computor in the lobby. No snacks or coffee available for guests after the breakfast is over, which is generally a nice touch.Reasonably priced. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: King suite with fireplace and balcony was nice

- Called this morning to make a reservation. It took three tries to get someone to answer the phone. When I requested a King bed for 2 adults and 1 child, I was told children weren't allowed on the King floor. Being tall, king-sized beds are requirement for a good night's rest.
We'll never stay at this hotel.

We booked here at the last minute and were glad we did. It is only a few miles out of Banff. We had a lovely room with a balcony looking out to the mountains. The beds were comfortable and everything seemed newly decorated. The pool is large and indoors. It appears to be a popular location for families. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking is free as is wifi. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends who want to avoid staying in Banff which is really crowded.

Our one night stay in August/2011:
Great location with amazing view of mountains (but where isn't it a great view of mountains in Canmore?). Tim Horton's/Wendy's right next door, 5-10 minutes from the trendy downtown shops & cafes.
The hotel seems older but is nicely maintained & clean. Largish pool with a fast waterslide. This waterslide seems dangerous as the landing is directly into the shallow end, witnessed several near misses.
Room was large with a balcony with a view. Beds were overly soft with no large comforter & just not that comfortable we found.
Rooms seem extremley close together, had lots of noise in the hallway, next door, & above us well after midnight resulting in a poor night's sleep. Sound proofness definetly below average. Didn't help that we were right beside stairwell door which we could hear closing again well into the wee morning hour!
Very good deluxe breakfast included, coffee not good. No "buisness center", just one computer located right out in the open on the floor near front desk, no privacy once so ever.
Staff were very friendly & accomadating. Check in was quick but there was no express check out, had to wait several minutes in line to check out.
Overall, although this hotel is okay & reasonably priced for the area, we would most likely try a different place next time in Canmore. It's the "little things" or lack thereof that often sets these types of properties apart.

This i's a very nice hotel with a great mountain view. Rooms are spacious and modern. We were looking forward to the fireplace after a chilly motorcycle ride from Jasper. Staff was friendly and accommodating and helpful with suggestions for dining etc. Continental breakfast was very good, nice variety.
