“Adequate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Four of us (two couples) stayed here as part of a time share exchange. We had a 2-bedroom unit; it was spacious and clean, with washer/dryer, lots of closet space, and jacuzzi in one of the bedrooms. It is at the far end of Canmore, safe and quiet area, only a few minutes from the middle of town or major highways. Overall, it was comfortable and adequate, with just a few minor maintenance issues. However, with just a little bit of effort from whoever owns/manages it, it could have been great. As it is, there's no WiFi; sparse kitchen equipment, ie no blender; fan to AC unit very noisy; no amenities other than a small pool with only a few pool chairs; no food/snacks available; no picnic tables or sitting areas outside to enjoy the beautiful views; no way to print anything, ie boarding passes; front desk personnel friendly but not very helpful on touristy questions... As another reviewer mentioned, go next door to WorldMark for restaurant coupons. I'm recommending it because it served its purpose, but we spent most of the time out sightseeing and essentially only slept there.

We came for a ski vacation and loved it. Huge 2 bedroom w a nice jacuzzi and laundry in the unit. Comfy beds. We cooked often. 1 minute to Canmore downtown. Less than 5 mins to the nordic centre. 10 mins into Banff. 30 mins to Sunshine and about 1 hr to Lake Louise.

Tons of parking spots, great views, a nice home away from home.

Ventilation system was loud but the white noise put our baby to sleep easily. Service izpsnt great but this is a timeshare not a hotel. They provide the aptmt and you do what you want.

Outdoor jacuzzi and pool were very warm andit felt like a winter spa. The sauna is nice too.

Outdated furniture and surroundings. Pretty clean but old. Excellent location in Canmore. Lots of Elk sightings in town. Staff not very helpful.. Many hike and bike trails close by.
We kept going to the Worldmark By WYNDHAM next door for tips on sights, restaurants and other tourist questions. They were very helpful next door and I would stay there next time. The two vacation resorts share a common pool but the Worldmark By WYNDHAM has newer carpet, furnishings, TVs and a very helpful staff. Cleaner also.

Looks good from the outside, but once inside, a different story. Minimally furnished (no blender, no wifi, one lamp in the main room). Carpet in the common areas was not vacuumed the entire time we were there. Noisy foundation work was conducted right outside our unit from 8 to 5. Water leaked into our unit and soaked the carpet in a bedroom and living room. When this was reported, the representative at the front desk (the only person there, from 8:30 to 5, daily), could not have been more unsympathetic. Not recommended.

carpet is very dirty and aged. door can't close without slamming it. swimming pool is dirty too since no one is maintaining it. curtains are dusty. grill is half broken. pull out sofa bed is in poor shape with no pillow and blanket.

staff is clueless, when asked for more blankets, pillows, and towels, answer is always "no". nothing is available in front office. house keeping only come once a week (on Saturdays). no one is in office between 4pm to next morning 9am. even someone is in office, she offers no help.

don't be fooled by its fancy website.

I was a little disappointed in the building and facilities when we arrived although I struggled to really put my finger on exactly why. It just didnt seem as "fancy" as it looked on the website and for the price we paid.
That said, the apartment itself was very clean with a number of TV's, dishwasher, microwave etc, and great showers. The only thing really missing was a radio or ipod docking station. We all found the beds very comfortable.
The building was further outside downtown Canmore than I had realised, being a 40 minute walk each way but only an easy 10 minute or so drive. Our apartment had reasonable views of the mountains but not fantastic.
The gym is described as having a full range of free weights but all I found was a small room with just some cardio equipment and no weights. I may have just missed the weights room if there is one but I certainly looked around for it.

Superficially, the place looks nice but upon further inspection, a number of problems began to manifest themselves. The cutlery and crockery is pasties sell by date, the kitchen utensils are very limited, drawers do not open smoothly, wardrobe door keeps falling off its runners.

The front reception is an absolute shambles,manned only between 08.0 and 17.00 and when manned they are next to useless. Today, we had a blocked toilet, the maintenance man was not on site so the suggestion was to use a plunger. Toilet successfully unblocked but the bowl overflowed onto the bathroom floor. Front desk were of no help and just shrugged as they had no access to cleaning materials as the maintenance man had a day off and the weekly cleaners were contracted out. I offered to do it myself but they had no access to any cleaning materials whatsoever, result, water from toilet bowl has remained on the bathroom floor for 24 hours until the maintenance man comes back to work.

Very disappointed with the lack of cooperation and what amounted to nothing more than a Gallic shrug from front desk.

On the plus side, Canmore is a nice place to visit.
