“The Best place EVER!”
Reviewed July 30, 2009

We had our Family Reunion at this Inn. I can't say enough about the service we had there. They bent over backward to accomodate anything we asked for. There were around 65 of us there an not one of us had a complaint about the rooms or the service. Any one of us would recommend this Inn to others.

Very nice, newer hotel. Continental breakfast was standard fare but good. Kids enjoy the pool and waterslide. Hot tub is also bigger then most hotels. We stayed on the backside of the hotel. You do hear some traffic noise from the service road behind the hotel so if this bothers you get a room on the frontside.

Because of previous tripadvisor reviews, we stayed at BW Pocattera twice in July, to and from Kelowna, BC.
Rooms are good size,AC works well ( wall thermostat controlled, unusual perk for a BW Hotel) Trains do run by the south side of the property, so stay on the highway side (North side) if you are a light sleeper.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast passable. Warning - no decent restaurant nearby. The joint next door is barely digestable, and expensive to boot.
Only major issue -the internet. On both stays (10 days apart). the in-room internet not only waas VERRRRY slow, but locked up my computer. The second time, I had to get Dell to overnight a repair disc to me to get the computer back up. They have a lobby computer, but it is very slow also.
We would stay there again , but underbno circumstances would we use the in-room internet.

The Pocaterra Inn is on the end of Canmore's main drag, closest to the Banff National Park entrance. The architecture has stone and log look that suits its mountain setting. The lobby, pool, breakfast area, and most importantly, the room was spacious, clean and inviting. This felt luxurious for a non-resort hotel. We felt impressed for the price we paid.

The following night we stayed at the Best Western in Banff, and were completely disappointed. I wished we would have driven the 20 or so miles back to Canmore to stay at the Pocaterra, and next time, we probably will.

Best Western Pocaterra Inn was a nice surprise for us. My wife, my two year old and myself spent a night there on the last weekend.
Front desk staff (we were helped by John) were friendly and professional, the room spotless and spacious with very comfortable beds, and the view was fantastic.
I booked a room at the front part of the hotel since I had read a couple of reviews about the back part being a bit noisy, but the whole establishment felt really quiet.
There's a well equipped gym and an entertainment room in the lower level, and also a really nice pool with a big slide.
The only thing that could be improved (and this is a very personal opinion) is the continental breakfast. It wasn't bad, but it lacked some freshness (the fruit was canned instead of fresh, for example).
But overall, a great experience. We'll be back for sure.

My wife, 18 month daughter and I went from Calgary to Canmore for an overnight getaway from the city, and were delighted with the Pocaterra.

The staff was friendly, rooms clean and new, and the free breakfast was everything we needed. The cherry on the cake was the pool with waterslide. The slide was too fast for our little girl, but the other kids around 10-12 year olds looked like they were having fun. As an added and unexpected bonus, there were several sizes of small lifejackets for small kids.

A tip - make sure that if you are considering other hotels along Highway 1A, that you are not on the railroad side. The Pocaterra was very quiet, but some others on that strip may be disturbed.

On a recent trip to Canada we spent two nights at the Best Western in Canmore and the hotel is a good nice hotel. Very Clean and large rooms with lovely staff. Breakfast was nice and filling. In a good location for traveling the area. Very impressed and would stay there again.
