Excellent location. Onsite restaurant very good
No air conditioning in room
The staff were so insanely friendly! Loved that a lot. The view was also nice and the beds were very comfortable.
The rooms were dated, and the cleanliness wasn’t the best in the bathrooms. But the absolute worst part was the lack of air conditioning.
The Drake is a great hotel, particularly if you want to be within easy walking of Canmore's town centre and have a lovely location, especially with a balcony, by the creek (which I'd recommend). It's an older hotel, almost motel, that could use updating, but it's comfy. Beds are very comfortable, rooms are clean, and staff is friendly. Love it that they allow pets in some rooms, and prices are very reasonable, given the competition. If you want to stay in a basic hotel room, stay at something like the Comfort Inn; but if you care about a more homey, comfortable space (but not luxurious), stay at the Drake.
Obviously our creekside room was not one that has been renovated, but it was suitable for us. A main complaint would be that the bathroom door squeaked loudly. Nothing that a bit of WD40 couldn't fix. Door itself was in (aesthetically) bad shape, but the squeaking was the problem. Carpets are old inside and on the balcony; kinda grimy but passable.
The cost was exhorbitant for what was provided
Spacious pleasant room. Large comfortable bed.
Exterior is a bit ordinary
When you stay at The Drake Inn in Canmore, you'll be near ski lifts, within a 5-minute drive of Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre and Yamnuska Mountain Adventures. Featured amenities include ATM/banking services and coffee/tea in a common area. Free self parking is available onsite.
