This was my first visit to beautiful Canmore, though we have driven through this area on our way to BC, it was so pretty, the mountains were right in your face everywhere you looked. In total there were 8 of us that stayed at the Drake Motel in Canmore, most stayed for 2 nights, but others just one, others came for the evening and drove home.
Canmore is about 60 minutes west of Calgary
The architecture is Swiss Mountain Village style
