Stayed here while visiting Banff. The grocery store and many restaurants are 5-minute drive. You can walk to downtown Canmore as well. The hiking trail is walking distance. We went to Valbella Gourmet Food store to get very nice meats and sausages and grilled in the balcony. The kitchen is well stocked. The bathrooms were very clean. There was only one parking space allocated in the garage but we found street parking was actually easier to access our rental unit. The location is 2 minutes from the highway exit and Banff is less than 20 minutes. Happy with the rental, will stay again.

Was most disappointed that the pool was not working during our 5 days there. We have children that wanted to use the pool and booked because of the resort having a pool. The website for the hotel listed the pool would be working during our stay but the work was delayed. When we expressed dissapointment we were finally given passes to swim at the local pool. But I was frustrated that this was not offered the first day we arrived. And it is more convenient when the pool is onsite.

Very nice newer condo close to everything. Swimming pool is more like a tub not for adults They do have movie theater for guests to have a family movie. Staff is very friendly. Wifi is not sufficient

The Solara Resort is top notch! The rooms were amazing with fully equipped kitchens, great location. Fantastic stay!

Staff service quality is variable. Some are excellent and helpful; others are not.

Loved are room, it was more of a Condo than a hotel room. Excellent amenities in the room, full sized kitchen, wash dryer, duel sided fireplace, patio with a grill. Convenient location off the main highway. Clean, Modern, good parking. The only thing was the bed was a little too firm but no big deal. We got a lot for our money and Im glad we stayed here.

fabulous resort in the Canadian Rockies. Fully equipped suite with all cooking facilities, dishwasher, washer/drier, etc.. Note that there is no restaurant on the property.

I reserved 2 rooms for four nights at this Hotel, and during those stays, they only cleaned 1 room for one night. I had to go to front desk 6 times to get towels, and daily necessary items. This is worse than Motel 6 Service. I won't recommend this resort, if you looking for the daily room service. This hotel is unacceptable for 4 star rating.

Super trendy and Eco- friendly. Location was great for all the skiing in Banff National Park. Canmore a neat village too. Was disappointed in the gym and no restaurants in the resort.

The hotel is conveniently located to the highway and to downtown Canmore. It's a large three-building complex with tastefully appointed rooms with modern decor and the rooms have balconies with electric grills. The attention to detail in the units is impressive, although the developer clearly skimped on the common areas. The underground parking garage is convenient, and the hotel has a good gym and provides free dvd rentals. Mountain bikes are available for rent, although the prices are steep. Overall this property is a good value, especially when traveling with a family .

I have a long list of issues that did not go well for us on this, our 2nd stay at the Solara. The furniture is in terrible shape, there was food caked into the wicker chairs, there was a dog left barking on 2 separate days for between 1-2 hours... I could go on.

The fridge did not work. The sink taps were dirty. The dishwasher had dishes that were not clean (they had gone through the cleaning cycle, but weren't actually clean). There was hair in the bathroom in the shower as well as a big clump of hair at the bottom of the garbage can.

Booked for the spa & amenities however had no warning prior to booking that none of it was working and closed at the time. Still paid full price with zero compensation at check in. Would have appreciated better customer service.
