Front desk was very friendly and lots of parking for truck and trailer we were there by snowmobile and were able to park in front of our room . THE ROOM was very very tired and the bathroom floor moved when walked on . The room was nice and warm and had the usual stuff in it tv etc .
There is a restaurant on the property which was a combo of 2 for 1 pizza and a burrito counter staff good to deal with .
The owners need to start spending some $$$ if they are not already and post that they are refreshing the place.
The town of Cochrane needs to get involved with business as there is nothing other that
Harvey's Swiss Chalet Tims and various pizza joints , when I have spent all day on my sled I would like something other than fast food and eating in my room.

My stay was reasonably priced

If it wasn’t for the staff accommodating us with an extremely early check into a pet friendly non smoking room during a snowstorm - outward appearances of the complex would have dissuaded us from staying there. Credit the staff also for being prompt when asked to repair a light fixture. If the restaurant was part of the complex, the food was a very pleasant surprise.

Upon arrival, the office door window was broken with a piece of cardboard in it. Our room had not been vacuumed because there was carpet fresh spread all over the floor. The toilet was wobbly and almost ready to fall off.

Room smelled. Was only given one roll of toilet paper after repeated requests for more we were there for 4 nights I ended up going out and buying my own toilet paper. Sink plugged up after using it once. Had to constantly fix toilet after every 5-6 flushes tank wouldn’t refill. Fridge smelled awful when opened so I didn’t want to put food in it. Won’t go back

I had stayed in this hotel once in the past when hotels were fully booked in Cochrane, and recently had to book here again as every hotel was fully booked due to snowmobiling season. When I had called and asked about availabilities and rates, the employee had said "$119+tax" which was more expensive than the last time I stayed. I had said I would call them back, to which the employee sighed and responded, "wait. Give me a rate and I will say yes or no". I hung up the phone anyway, checked the price online for the same room and found out it was actually $99+tax. Because it was the only hotel available, I booked online for 1 night. Arrived and the room was dirty, pretty sure the sheets were not changed between guests (crumbs in the bed sheets. Gross) and ended up sleeping on top of the sheets despite the room space heater not working. If you are looking to stop in Cochrane- book ahead and get the Station Inn or Westway, do not waste your time or money on this place.

The good: Location to snowmobile trails was perfect, restaurant on site food was great!
The bad: Dirty towels and face clothes left in our bathroom. They did bring us new ones but did not pick up the dirty ones.
The bed and couch you sit on them and they sink to the floor.
The continental breakfast was stale bagels, green eggs, and some old fruit... was not impressed

Beds were horrible and lumpy. All of the other furniture in the room had stains all over them and they charged just under $200 per room with taxes. The outdoor space was no better with garage bags left on the chairs even though we checked in after 6pm at night.

Very nice staff. Motel is well located near visitor center and key intersection, so downtown and the main retail street (with Tim Horton's), as well as Polar Bear Habitat and train station, are easily and equally accessible. Clean room and comfortable bed. Price is high, but it's market-normal for this region.

We are avid snowmobilers and have stayed at this hotel many times over the winter. It just seems to keep getting better! The rooms are clean, the people are friendly and very accomodating. There is ample and convenient parking for our trick, trailer and our sleds. The hotel is right on the trail and centrally located to restaurants, shopping, gas and everything that a winter rider would want! Thank you to the team at Thriftlodge Cochrane for never letting us down!
