"Subpar, horrible hotel"
The worst hotel I have stayed in. Everything in the room looked like it was from a flea market or garage sale. Their water wasn't potable so they supplied you with a bottle of water. No security, open doors. Can't say enough bad things about it. Didn't stay the second night of our stay, booked elsewhere. If this is the type of hotel that Hotel.com has in its offerings, I won't be booking through you again. I really want my money refunded for the second night.

"I'll pass next time"
I've seen double- and triple sheeting...this was single? sheeting: a sheet and then the decorative/protective bed spread! No blanket at all! Very small rooms with too much/too big furniture, not comfortable. Pro: right by the road, fridge in the room, hot water kettle and microwave available in public area. Water there is not potable!

If you really want to enjoy banff, don't go into populated part. This is between mountains on the highway. Look for room 6. It would work... small room but decent.

"Horrible."
You probably have seen hotels where the stain covers another stain. That's the right place. Burgundy (or green) carpet was dirty enough so there was no way to take your shoes off. It looked like to be wet but it wasn't. Chairs were even worse, forget to put even your luggage on it. Haven't seen cheaper bathroom. The cabin was about 30"x30" with 20" wide curtain. Towels were brown, (yes). Cheap, unstable cabinet with old sink and crooked doors. Breakfast doesn't exist since the 'bar' shares the entrance and drying/washing machines. If you have an allergy or you travel with your spouse or family - that place is not for you. Spend extra bucks more and go to Canmore. There are great deals if you make your reservation ahead of time. I'd like to mention that I stayed at standard room, 1 queen bed. 2 bad rooms looked to be in a little bit better shape.

Located in the middle of nowhere, a very dated, low quality room with no air-conditioning but lots of road noise. No hotel amenities of any kind. A very high price for what was offered!

This is a great place to stay at a bargain rate for this area. Dead Man's Flats is not that far away from Banff. It's a tiny, unpretentious town, and we enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable.

The Hotel is approximately 30km East of Banff. Whilst is was cheap enough, if you're planning to go to Banff or Lake Louise, you might like to try & find a closer Hotel. The Hotel is Very old & needs a lot of work done to it & you only have the choice of 6 TV channels. It is just off the highway, but fortunately you don't get much traffic noise.

"Nice place to stay if you want a quiet place."
We enjoyed a quiet homey atmosphere. Our room was spacious, with a nice mini kitchen. The TV was old and reception was poor with only a few channels available. Since we were there for sight-seeing and didn't want to watch much TV, we didn't feel we were shorted. We would stay there again.

"Only stay if you want the absolute minimum."
Old. Small. Did not feel safe. Smells from cooking in next room. Open rooms with people milling about. Next to freeway. In past 500 days on the road over the past 10 years, this was worst room. We left even though we prepaid second night. No amenities except coffee downstairs and you could go to the office for a hair dryer.

"Old, overpriced with no perks!"
Good price for the Banff area however overpriced for quality. The rooms were extremely outdated, beds very uncomfortable, water not drinkable, no continental breakfast and only a few channels on a small TV. Only spent one night but it was a little better than camping in a tent. We just travelled across Canada and spent many nights in lower priced hotels that were new, clean and offered breakfast so it was hard to spend the money on this place.

"Stay far away"
Well I would never have stayed here but my original hotel was oversold and this was the only place left! Hotels.com did an adequate job of finding us a place to stay despite the circumstances. This hotel has not had potable water since 2014! There are signs all over the place and we only received 2 - 500ml bottles of water in our room!

"Water unsafe for drinking or washing hands"
There is a sign on the door dated November 2014 from the health inspector saying the water in the motel is unsafe to drink and if used to wash your hand, hand sanitizer should be used after. I would rather sleep in my car than stay another night in this motel! I don't know how a property without safe water is on Hotels.com to begin with.

"An Adventurous Stay in Dead Man's Flat"
The Big Horn Motel was adequate for staying the night of August 4, 2015 and its location was convenient. However, there was NO potable water; meaning, no water to drink or brush your teeth with. The owner was kind enough to give us sealed plastic bottles of water and some ice. There is a refrigerator in the room but no microwave oven; it was downstairs along with a coffee machine. The room did have the requested 2 queen beds and provided fans; no air conditioning. I don't understand why Hotels.com does not include these obvious inconvenient factors (no potable water) when posting the motel's availability.

"Deadman' s Flats"
We stayed there because we could not get a hotel in Canmore for the first two nights of our four night stay. They were fixing the water system so the water in the tap was not drinkable. Instead of making accommodations for this, they tried to cash in and rip us off for bottled water at an exaggerated price. The room was spacious, quiet, and the bed was firm to hard (not really comfortable). It was overpriced for what it was. We moved into Canmore for the last two nights and the Pocatello Best Western was a lovely change.

"Pleasantly surprised."
From the reviews we had been expecting worse, so we were pleasantly surprised by the clean, comfortable room with a mini kitchenette. We had a nice view of the mountains out the window. No breakfast is offered, but we found that they have a fully equipped kitchen on the upper floor, and an ajoining room with a couple of tables, so a person could easily bring along their own breakfast to eat there if they wanted.

"Nice place to stay for price."
We took four people, and the price was quite reasonable. Had a little bit of difficulty finding our way back onto the TransCanada due to construction, and it's about a 20 minute drive from most amenities other than a Husky Station, so make sure you plan around this. The water was under a boil advisory, but they provided a water bottle for each of us for a one night stay and we had no issues. Our room was without a kitchenette, but it still included a kettle, microwave, dishes, and a sink. The hotel was pretty quiet, but the walls aren't very thick so if you've got loud guests across the hall that might be an issue. Wifi was OK. Seemed quite clean, especially in contrast to some of the complaints in other reviews. No sign of any kind of bugs, carpet/floor was clean, sheets were clean, bed spread was OK, tables + surfaces were clean, shower + toilet were clean. The hotel staff were friendly and they didn't charge extra for us accidentally tracking mud onto the tiles (oops!) Overall I would recommend this hotel to others who are on a tighter budget and are looking for a nice, clean room that isn't too far from Canmore/Banff (22 minutes on avg).

"Budget comfort in the gateway to the rockies"
Alerted by another review, I was prepared to communicate carefully with the staff, whose primary language is Chinese or Vietnamese. I found no problem at all, and the people I dealt with were more than friendly and helpful. The hotel is older, but spotless, and set in the jaw-dropping Canadian Rockies, right by the Trans Canada Highway. There is a truckers' restaurant (with gas) on one side, and a quaint little boutique café on the other. Our room had a kitchenette, though we didn't use it. I can imagine having an inexpensive winter vacation there, making one's own meals, and skiing or snowboarding daily.

"Boil water advisory?!"
During my stay (Dec 6) there was a boil water advisory that was not mentioned during booking. Dead Man's Flats has little to no services (one gas station). Since there was no drinkable water at the hotel, I feel like that should have been considered before booking.
