Very nice hotel with a view on the mountains.

Myriam P (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) on May 18, 2024

Hello! We chose this hotel in Canemore because it was cheaper than staying in Banff and we were pleased! The breakfast was very good, the rooms was cute and clean. We also loved the soap and shampoo in the bathroom, everything was perfect. The location itself has a very nice view on the mountains! We recommend this place :)

A Canmore gem

Kristal S on Apr 29, 2024

Pocaterra is a gem! Location with beautiful views of the Rockies and a 10 minute walk to restaurants & shoppes. We loved the pet friendly rooms (they deliver a dog bed, bowls and toy), fireplace in room, balcony, mini kitchenette with microwave, mini frig and coffee maker, bath tub was deep and the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. products are local! Comfortable beds & a hot breakfast included (fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, waffles, potatoes with garnishes) my kids loved the pool, water slide , hot tub and sauna for adults was a perfect way to start the weekend. This place has everything and more for an amazing price point. We will be repeat visitors!

Excellent stay!

Gazpacho16 (Banff, Canada) on Apr 26, 2024

We stayed here for one night while travelling through Canmore. The place caught our attention because of the waterslide. Our kids just loved it! The property was everything we expected and more! It was clean, well-maintained and the rooms looked like they were recently re-done. The view from our room was simply breathtaking! The beds were comfortable - the only negative were the pillows. They were hard and of low quality, but other than that, the sleep was decent. Staff was friendly and helpful. We forgot our phone charger and were contacted in the afternoon to retrieve, once the room had been cleaned. Breakfast was plentiful with eggs, sausage, bagels , fruit, cereal among other items. You can't go wrong with staying here. We had an awesome experience and will return someday.

Pet friendly doesn’t mean friendly pets…

WestOfTheFifth on Feb 24, 2024

So we typically in the industry want people to leave our establishments happy, one way or another. So I politely voiced my dissatisfaction to the front desk, (by no means looking for “comps” but maybe acknowledgment and potentially a gesture) but unfortunately I still left unhappy. So here is my unbiassed review. . first I will say to those who are looking…this is a PET FRIENDLY hotel. I missed this somehow….So just understand, that being woken up by a barking dog in your hallway on your vacation is something that COULD happen…And DID happen to us. …But I was told by the front desk that it’s a “pet friendly hotel”….and when a dog on a leash lunged and barked at our family as we came out of the elevator to our room … I was told it’s a “pet friendly hotel”. Maybe “pet friendly” doesn’t mean “friendly pets”. The pool and hot tub were very “strong” , we all felt it on our skin immediately after and for a couple of days.…pool was also very busy in the evening time . And the elevator… wow….a mind of its own it seemed. You would think it’s coming from 30 Stories up. That’s the bad… The room was comfortable tho. Clean and There was a little fireplace and a decent bathroom. There seemed to be plenty of parking, it’s walking distance on a nice day to the town and it’s cheaper than most competitors. The breakfast buffet was decent content wise, had a good variety,but struggled to keep up with the people. I’m sure if you want to bring your dog with you this would be a great place to stay. BUT if you want 100% chance of not being woken up or having your children barked at by a dog in the hallways on your vacation then maybe it’s not for you? 4/5 for room condition/food/general areas 2/5 for my experience and the policy and how it was handled 3/5 overall to be fair

Not worth the price

Karla H on Dec 31, 2023

Room: Got to our room and noticed the pillows on the one bed were covered in dirt looked like they were dropped in dirt and picked up again, also noticed that the bottom sheet wasn’t clean (had marker on it) and noticed nacho chips on the floor (indication room was not cleaned well) not a great first impression. Went to front desk to have our room looked at, the housekeeper changed the pillow cases but did not want to change the bedding as he said it’s clean just won’t come out. Too tired from travelling to argue. Next morning went to shower no conditioner was refilled and no lotion was in our room. Went to the front desk to ask for our beds to be stripped (didn’t feel very comfortable) conditioner to be topped up and lotion if they have it (so dry this time of year). Came home from a long but fun activity day, showered and went to bed. Conditioner was refilled but no lotion. Hopped into bed, and immediately could tell that this wasn’t clean crisp bedding. Pulled over the sheets noticed there was hair (assuming dog hair) as they are pet friendly. Daughter and I slept on top of the top sheet for the night. I would say they definitely need to improve and pay more attention to cleanliness of the rooms. Pool: The pool was very gross and dirty. Went into the hot tub and tiny grits of sand in the bottom and was super cloudy water, didn’t stay long that’s for sure. Also had a very high chlorine smell which usually indicates there’s too much bacteria for the chemicals to get rid of. Also there was never any pool towels to use. Breakfast: impressed that it was a hot breakfast, but staff had a very hard time keeping it maintained and clean. Staff: very friendly staff but seemed very lazy at just wanting to do the bare minimum. Overall if cleanliness is your top priority this isn’t the place for you.
