Editor's Analysis
Updated on Jun 29, 2014
Overview
This Econo Lodge is just off the Trans-Canada highway, about a 15-minute drive from Banff National Park. This is one of the area's less expensive hotel options, and attracts those more intent on enjoying the outdoor activities on offer in the area, as opposed to the amenities of the hotel. 

The two-storey hotel has 60 rooms, from which guests can choose king or queen beds, or family rooms with a queen bed and bunkbeds. All rooms come with flat screen TV with cable, microwaves and Keurig coffeemakers. Room extras include a jetted tub, a fireplace, a mini-fridge or kitchenette with stove top and cooking utensils. Pets are allowed for an additional $15/night fee. A small exercise room is available to guests as well.

A free continental breakfast is served every morning featuring hard-boiled eggs, pancakes and fruit, and an adjacent restaurant serves meals beyond that. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and guests can park for free, with cold-weather plug-ins available.


Banff National Park's 'Big 3' major ski resorts are nearby (Ski Norquay and Sunshine Village are 30 minutes away, while Lake Louise Ski Resort is about an hour and fifteen minutes away), while the Canmore Nordic Centre is less than 10 km away (featuring cross-country skiing trails in the winter and mountain biking and hiking trails in the summer). The Canadian Rockies Adventure Centre, where many outdoor activities can be booked year-round, is 1 km down Bow Valley Trail. Canmore's town centre is about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. 
The Good
The word "surprising" came up a lot in reviews of Canmore's Econo Lodge, but in a good way. Despite it being one of the less expensive options in town, many guests were impressed by the attentiveness and friendliness of the hotel's staff, even if concerns were raised. 

The location is ideal and is one of the highest regarded features of the hotel, especially among those guests who viewed the hotel as a place to stay between the many outdoor activities available outside the hotel. As such, the hotel is often viewed as good value for its price, especially considering the range of accommodation options in Canmore and the nearby resort town of Banff.

The fireplaces and jetted tubs in many rooms were a well-appreciated and unexpected perk for many guests, and the surrounding mountain views certainly didn't go unnoticed by many.

Some guests enjoyed meals at the restaurant next door, Chez Francoise.

The Bad
Some guests offered constructive criticism of the property and noted the hotel's need to be refurbished. They cited an uneven parking lot with some pits, thin walls, dark hallways and stairwells and loose tiles in the bathroom.
