If you are just looking for a place to rest your head for the night this place will do just fine. If you need anything else, wifi especially. Don't rely on this place. I tried to skype into a business call and I had to cut the call short because the wifi was so bad.

Room available from 4;pm means just that not before as the Reception is locked. The room is ok but somewhat bland , if I say “ polystyrene cups “ you’ll know what I mean . Facilities near the motel are limited to a chain restaurant and petrol station.

Front of hotel full of weeds. Office was dirty & smelled of curry. Office worker came out in her food stained pull over nighty at 6:30 in the evening and was surprised when we asked to see the room before we paid for it. After checking out the room we chose not to take it. Way over priced for the age of the hotel & it’s lack of cleanliness.

This motel wasn't super bad - things were clean, and even though it was on the older side, you could tell staff took care of things. However, we tried to check in earlier in the day for a two night stay, and no one was in the office until after 4 PM. Also, the bed was very hard, and you can hear some traffic from the highway and the street behind the motel, where semi-trucks park. The small truck stop next to the motel had great breakfast food, and the price was low, so... I don't think I'd return, but it was clean, at least. (also had trouble with WiFi.)

I stayed here for two nights in mid-December. What a well-maintained little place where the location is key! It is situated 4 kms east of Canmore on the Trans-Canada Hwy. Surrounded by The Canadian Rockies - the views are breathtaking. The room was spacious; had a double bed; full bathroom with shower & tub; lots of floor space; ample storage space for one's belongings; equipped with a flatscreen TV, internet access, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, additional bedding, table & chairs, and a window that looks out at the mountains. The room itself was spotlessly clean with new carpet; walls are freshly painted; ample lighting; and it has little touches of oak or pine furniture pieces throughout giving it a rustic feel. My room happened to be located at the back of the motel where highway noise was not an issue - my sleep is rarely bothered by noise. I mention this because I have seen reviews here that mentioned the noise from the highway as being annoying. I would suggest that light sleepers request a room at the back. Staff - Friendly & efficient Ryan is very personable & accommodating. He speaks both English & French - as well as his Asian mother tongue. He seems to take care of everything - from the Front Office duties to the meticulous cleaning of the suites and the upkeep outside. He is a lovely young fellow who has been employed there for ~ 18 months now & who remains on site. All in all, I highly recommend the Big Horn Motel for it's convenient location & for value for money. It is in a small hamlet that is very safe - for walking about in. There was not a thing I could find fault with!

The Motel itself was extremely clean, my room was a decent size with a single bed. I recommend getting a room at the back off the highway for less noise. The bed felt like I was sleeping on a boxspring. The pillows were awful. The owner at the front desk wasn’t very friendly. I felt like I was an inconvenience just checking in.

We stayed for three nights at this hotel Manager doesn't care about customers. Wi-Fi was so poor and all three nights we had problem sleeping due to passing trucks and noise. People are choosing Banff to chill out, but this motel won't be a good place to stay.

I stayed with my wife for three nights. The room was small and crowded with the suitcases. We ran into the corners of the bed and the walls all the time. The bathroom was also small and dirty, as if trying to get out the broken door was stuck in the knees, the shower was very small as the body rubbed against the walls. Overall cleanliness was low. The walls were thin and the neighbors could be heard. Because there was a weekend in August and there were no sleeping places around, we paid an extra $ 190 Canadian for the night including taxes. It would be better to speak in Calgary in a normal hotel and drive another hour back and forth.

Banff and Canmore were booked and overpriced, so we stayed here. The location was great as we backtracked one day to the Kananaskis country and the next day we spent in Banff and area - I will note there is a breakfast/lunch restaurant in the area, but not supper. The room was simple but clean.. I don't go to the mountains to stay in a fancy room though, I go for the mountains!!! If you are all about the hotel room you might not like it.. if you are all about the outdoors, you will be fine!

This property is extremely run down, dated and dirty. The website claims it has modern rooms which is completely inaccurate. The staff was rude and unprofessional. Even tho we could not get a refund after seeing our room we walked away and found other accommodations. I was Not sleeping there. I do not recommend this motel to anyone. Drive to Canmore and spend the extra $$ on a decent room.
