The Drake stated absolutely no smoking or pets were permitted , the room we were assigned to wreaked of cigarettes! I complained to management and he said it was the weekend and all other rooms were filled. I countered that I would have to complain to Expedia , he then told me to wait a few minutes and magically found a vacant room !! So they actually lied twice to me !! Very disappointing !

Cant beat the location, so easy to walk around downtown Canmore. The price point is also low for this area, and accommodations can be very pricey. This hotel is fine, but rooms would benefit from some updates (you will not be wowed by the décor or amenities).

The staff - all extremely friendly and down to earth, the hotel itself is not what I am used to having, I drove up and kept car running, but put my attitude aside and had a safe stay.. beds are so comfy, location is perfect, needs updating badly, but I felt safe

This place was way to run down and dingy it was literally original gaps in the door and the shower ceiling dripped yellow into the shower which by the way was only cold or scalding hot Would never stay again just in that alone. I don’t mind if things are a little old ect but this place was pretty rough
