We arrived late so it was just a place to crash however we should have kept driving as we would have saved the money.
I had read the reviews regarding this hotel and it was mentioned a couple of times that the bar attached to the hotel was loud but we thought it couldn't be that bad right? It was so freakin loud booming with base until around 2:40am so needless to say we didn't get much sleep. It didn't help that the bed was rough with springs poking us in the back. The room was really tired and did smell like they were trying to cover up a smoke smell but at least it was clean.
In the morning we thought well at least we had free breakfast so that was a bonus....um yeah...it was basically a loaf of bread with a toaster and a tupperware container with Cherios. It was a complete joke. We skipped it for sure and went to the Sobeys for free coffee and muffins.
Basically this hotel was one of the cheaper options in Canmore but for the money it was not worth it. We stayed in a hotel in Edmonton the next night for less money and it was 10 stars compared to this piece of crap. Avoid it and if you must spend the night in Canmore then spend the extra money as it will be worth it.
