We really enjoyed our stay here. Very clean, friendly, views of surrounding mountains were amazing. Very conveniently located. We had a one bedroom with fireplace but even though we looked that room it was better for us to have the 2 double bed room with kitchen. The woman at the desk was accommodating and even gave us a refund. The jacuzzi was big. The sauna was not so hot. It would have been better to have more kitchen utensils any pots but we managed. No paper towels or aluminum foil

Dear gooutintheworld, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. I am glad to know that you enjoyed our rooms with the double beds and kitchen with panoramic views of the captivating Rockies. My apologies with the lack of utensils in the kitchen along with the aluminium foil. Most of the kitchen amenities are always available should you require more by calling the front desk. We do provide a few dish cloths instead of the paper towels. In regards to our sauna, we constantly monitor the temperatures to make sure that it stays with in the regulations. My apologies for any inconveniences that may have caused given that it was not up to your preferred temperature. Be rest assured I will investigate in to this right away. Once again I appreciate your time and hope to host you again in the future. Best regards, Sahil Front Office Manager Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge

A reasonably priced property in Canmore. It was dated but offered a bit more room with a separate living/kitchenette in addition to the bedroom. We were on the 1st floor so you could also sit outside in the chairs in the evening & watch the sunset.
Staff was very friendly & helpful.

Just returned form a 2 night stay at this nice hotel. We booked a loft suite with kitchenette which was clean and quiet and had a nice view of the mountains from our balcony. The only problem we had was that the suite was unbearably hot and stuffy when we arrived, the AC had not been turned on and it was 95 degrees. A fan was provided to us but it never really got cool the whole time we were as the small AC unit was in the upstairs bedroom and did not cool the main floor. Apart from the heat issue we really liked the hotel, the location was great and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Dear Jane r, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. I am glad to know that you enjoyed our loft rooms along with panoramic views of the captivating Rockies. Please accept my apologies that the room was not up to your preferred temperature and felt stuffy. Historically the evening brings in lower temperatures and it tends to cool down significantly. The air conditioning also aids help better regulate the temperature. However I understand A/C along with the fan was not sufficient and I can imagine it is not the most pleasant. Be rest assured that we have taken care of this issue. I am happy to know that we were able to make your experience pleasant and comfortable during your stay other than the stated issue. We certainly do take pride in providing great customer service and I hope that you visit again. Look forward to having you with us soon.

We really enjoyed our stay here - a great base just outside of Banff. Marta at reception was incredibly helpful and showed us loads of things we could do. Her knowledge on the local wildlife was fantastic and a route she suggested to us meant we got to see a bear! No breakfast at hotel but we had our own catering facilities and there is a Safeway supermarket a 5 minute walk away. Very comfortable night's sleep, although trains were quite noisy one night. Reasonably priced considering the facilities you receive. Beautiful views of the rocky mountains! Thank you for having us!

We recently booked 3 nights stay here. Our suite, was very quaint, clean, comfortable, well maintained. We had loft bedroom with a Queen bed and Murphy styled bed, with a 2 piece ensuite. The main floor had a private bedroom. Living room/Dining room had a sofa/futon beside sliding doors that led to small cute balcony. The kitchen was a fully equipped kitchen, full size stove, and fridge, and a nice sized dining table. Although we didn't use the kitchen to the degree we could have, it is a wonderful option for those who have a longer stay. Especially when the grocery stores are not far away. We really have no complaints, we will be back!!

Initially i didn't really get a good vibe at this place. They had a policy of paying $50 per day on top of what we prepaid via expedia. This was not in any website, link or information provided. So it was a surprise for me when we came to check in. However, the receptionist lady Ana was a delight to deal with and made our stay real awesome. She was part of the reason why we extended our stay. Thank you.

My partner and I came to this motel on the 14th of June. Originally we had arrived in Canmore to stay in an Air BnB which we could not get ahold of so we headed to the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge as we had seen some good reviews online. After paying the overnight fee and sitting on the couch for one hour, we were contacted by our Air BnB host and told we could move to our proper accomodation. I called the front desk immediately and asked if there was anyway we could be refunded for the night as we had not used ANY of the rooms facilities. I was told yes as long as they resold the room that night, that we would be refunded in full. After not hearing from the motel at all, we returned the following day to enquire. The 'hotel manager' rudely told me that she had in fact resold the room but had sent her cleaning staff in after we had left and that we had gotten into the bed as well as used the entire kitchen. This is a blatant LIE and I am disgusted that the management are deliberately lying in order to make an extra profit. All we did was look through the kitchen to see what items they had. DO NOT trust the management here, the way they spoke to me was despicable and I will be taking every action against them if possible.

Response from GM-RMSL, General Manager at Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge
Responded Jul 6, 2017
Dear Guest, Please accept my apologies if you felt I was being rude. My intention was only to explain directly that we were charging you for the room as it had been used. After you had checked-in, you informed our desk staff that you would like to move to another property that you had previously booked - saying you could check in there after all and you would prefer to go there. You asked if we would charge you if you were to check out that evening. We decided to waive the 48 hours notice of cancellation policy and not charge for the room if we could sell the room that evening and if you had in fact not used the room which you said you hadn’t. The clerk called me again that evening after you left, and advised me that the head housekeeper and night man had to clean the room including the bed. It could not be rented without being cleaned. Therefore, I decided we would charge for it after all. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact me at your convenience. Regards, Donna Trautman General Manager

RMSL is a good choice. Cooking in the room saves time and money. We think the service and general atmosphere is excellent. We highly recommend this family run property. There is no restaurant on site but several are nearby. It's a short walk to supermarkets.

I stayed at the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge with 7 of my friends. The rooms are good! Two story layout, two beds up stairs, couch bed, and a bedroom. It also has a kitchen. I was pretty humbled to stay at such a neat place. Especially when the motel has a hot tub and sauna. Best place ever. Definitely will bring my friends here to have the same experience I had.
