Clean and Comfortable Good Value
The Basecamp Lodge has the BEST beds and showers. 10/10. Very clean. Train noise was not an issue at all and our room faced the tracks. Great location with great restaurants within walking distance. Beautiful mountain view. The desk needs a lamp and plug in nearby for those of us on a working getaway. Just by chance we had an extension cord with us. Overall I highly recommend Basecamp Lodge.

Canmore is great!
Canmore is a great town and super convenient to Banff. Super friendly staff. Parking is tricky but doable. I may have misread the ad, but there is no hot tub on property. Breakfast is the same thing every day (muffin, granola bar, yogurt, apple, juice) with no variety or choices. I would stay here again, but if you’re choosing a hotel for the free breakfast, pass on this one.

Our stay was very good. Service was great and room very clean. Our only issue was with limited parking for our truck.
