With so many cookie cutter places to stay and couch surfing on AirBnB being a step above playing Russian roulette, finding a budget unique hotel hostel with a clean setup can be challenging. Priorities also are the right ambience for your trip, convenience and location.
A hidden gem with old world charm may be the best kept secret in Canmore. The canmore Hotel hostel is arguable the best hotel hostel in its category in the entire bow valley. Located on Main Street in the heart of town, steps from local transit, a short walk to most of the best hiking trails in Canmore and hosting a bustling live music venue that is a restuarant during the day, the Canmore Hotel is a jewel nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.
There are nightly events at the hotel’s restaurant bar including Trivia on Monday nights, major sporting events showcased on their 120 inch massive screen throughout the week in addition to Karaoke on Friday nights and live bands/DJs throughout the weekend. The hostel upstairs is the site of many afterparties so a popular place for birthdays, bachelorette and special events.
