“Good Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We stayed two nights in this hotel. We stayed in a second floor balcony room that had a great view of the mountains. The room was very clean and larger than I expected (especially the bathroom) with comfortable beds and a gas fireplace which made the room toasty warm after a day in the cold.
My kids really enjoyed the pool and waterslide. The staff were very helpful when I needed directions to our tour and asked for advice on where to go for dinner.

The only downside (and the reason they get a 4 rating) was the breakfast. Both mornings by the time we made it downstairs (between 9:30 and 10:00) there was very little left to choose from. On the second morning we went down three times (9:30, 9:45 and 10:10) thinking they would eventually replenish the hot items, muffins etc but they didn't.
I thought I misread the hotel directory so I went to the front desk and they confirmed the breakfast was until 11:00. Needless to say we had to go elsewhere and pay for breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a second floor balcony room. Beautiful view.

Our stay was very quiet, the room was very cozy,nice and clean with a beautiful view of the mountain side. Hotel staff were also friendly and helpful.
The pool, hot tub and water slide were all very clean and the water warm with plenty of clean towels available. Nice to see for a change.

We stayed two nights in this hotel, had Breakfast only one morning and it was absolutely disgusting. The hot foods were cold,french toast and waffles were hard,and one of the customers had to ask staff if they were going to make more! There was none left when they wanted some,this was at 8:30am. The hotel itself was very nice,rooms were clean,and the view was breathtaking.

My husband, daughter and I stayed two nights at this hotel and were very happy with the hotel and service.

The hotel staff were fantastic. They were very friendly and helpful on check-in, check-out and throughout our stay.

The room was lovely and quiet. It was very clean and well maintained. The beds were quite comfortable and the fireplace was cozy.

The pool was lots of fun. Breakfast had quite a good variety and was tasty. The coffee could be better but I'm picky and Starbucks is close by.

We would definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to Canmore.

This was our first time staying at the Best Western in Canmore and it was very enjoyable. We have stayed in Canmore in the past and when we return it will be to the Best Western. The rooms are very spacious and very clean and the beds are super comfy. When the cleaning staff saw us come out of the room they stopped to say good morning, asked how the room was, is there anything we needed, etc...they were very friendly!! The overall appearance of the hotel was great, with everything being clean, clean, clean! The breakfast was very delecious and had a great assortment of hot and cold breakfast food. Great value for a weekend getway!

Stayed here for a second time for company xmas party. Rooms are very nice with a fireplace. Some have balconies. Pool and waterslide are nice, but got back from dinner too late to use. Beds are very comfy. Breakfast had a nice cheese omlet, pancakes,waffels sausages, fruit, yogurt and the usual toast, muffins, danish. Very good.

Room Tip: Top floor with a balcony, not sure if its more expensive

My husband and I live in Calgary and stayed one night at this hotel for a weekend getaway. Although only a one hour drive away, it was wonderful to visit Canmore and be up close to the amazing view of the Rockies. Our room faced the front of the hotel and had a small balcony. Two comfortable queen beds, a gas fireplace (nice added touch!), a small fridge and microwave made the room very nice. The bathroom was spacious and clean.

The check-in was friendly and efficient and our room was ready by 130pm.

We did not use the pool, waterslide or jacuzzi but did get a chance to walk from the hotel. The Canmore Towne Centre is a 5 minute drive away from the hotel. You are well situated on the edge of town with amenities close by.
