6/10 Good

This property is in need of a facelift. The balcony of our room was basically inaccessible because of the ancient aluminum sliding doors which were very difficult to open. The room was spacious, but the decor and furnishings were very dated. Lighting over the sink and mirror was horrible. Parking was free, but challenging because the hotel parking lot is shared with the adjacent restaurant/bar. The location is convenient to the town center and we were able to walk to many restaurants. I feel the price was too high for the condition of this property.

Great location
Great location but our room did not have a terrace as we were led to believe. Room was over outside patio so music was loud. Exterior is run down but room was just ok for the price. Very limited parking.

Delightful stay
My husband was in a wedding party and we stayed at the drake in because of its location to everything we needed. It was nice to walk everywhere. The staff were friendly and approachable even though they were short staffed during our stay still had our room ready early.

2/10 Poor

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).
