Completely deceiving advertising. Website advertises "gem among Canmore hotels", "everything to make you feel at home", "perfect location"...etc. all very misleading. This hotel is right beside the trans Canada highway with cars roaring by day and night. The noise permeates right through the hotel room. Buses and delivery trucks pull up at 6am and idle away. Non stop noise at this hotel. Just terrible - no piece and little sleep. Cannot describe how disappointed I am for me and my family. Even worse is the premium price that was charged for this $959 for 2 nights. I travel for work 2 night a week year round - this was my worst hotel experience ever. Can you please reimburse my full stay in consideration for this just terrible experience.

Hello randycornelisse, We are sorry to hear of the experience you had at our property. While there are vehicles around the hotel, noise is one of the few things we receive as negative feedback for our hotel (see other reviews). Please let us know while in house and we would be happy consider moving you to another room in the hotel. We always keep an emergency option open if required for guests. There is nothing that occurred in the hotel which caused your stay to go poor, all complaints you're registering have to do with exterior factors. Because the hotel did nothing wrong, but operated normally in its' situated location we would not reimburse a stay for this type of thing.

Nice hotel with a great view!

Pros: Nice and close to Banff without having to pay the higher prices to stay in Banff (and still great views)
Cons: Softer Beds, and having late check-out as an option would be great.
Location: Just off of the highway and about 20 minutes away from the heart of Banff. Lots of shops and restaurants close by.
It's easy to pass by the hotel as you are caught up in the view of the mountains and wilderness, but once you pull in it is a very nice building with a nice spacious main floor. We found depending on what time you are arriving parking may be tight as at one time we needed to park on a nearby street as the lot was full. Check-in was easy and quick, the room was great (with a great view of the mountains) - the only disappointments were the bed was quite firm, and a loud fan ran outside our room door. The provided breakfast was amazing with lots of options (even some for those that have a gluten free preference). Great pool and activity area, and lots of close by amenities (gas, restaurants, etc).

clean roomy room with good breafast

Pros: very roomy with nice bedding, wifi, free parking
Cons: the steam room didn't work the night we visited
Location: I made lots of sight seeing in Banff and Lake Louis.
very clean room that I don't need to have my room clean everyday, instead, I've got a $5 starbuck giftcard for each day that I don't have my room made, plus, good hot breakfast with hot eggs, bacon, bread..... Only 15 minutes driving from Banff, and about 25 minutes to Lake Louis, closed to freeway, grocery store... I would stay here again when I am back to Banff.
