I have now been the Kananaskis Lodge twice now and both experiences were quite different. We really enjoy going during our anniversary as it's shoulder season, yet the road conditions are still good enough. This resort is always picture perfect, so we love taking photos of it to match some local postcards.
The room was actually the same as the last time, but reversed layout. So, it was a familiar stay which I enjoyed, like an old friend. Once you oepn the door, you're into the bathroom sink area, and through the sink area would be that main bathroom with the tub and toilet.
The room is always spacious for 2 people, but I can see it being comfortable for a family, and still big enough with a group of friends. The bathroom situation would be a little strange sometimes if you're with a group of friends, but if you're close enough to stay in the same room, you're good!
Overall, our stay was wonderful as always. Hospitality was impeccable and the food was top notch. I'm sure another anniversary down the road we would be back! It's a nice quiet and remote location, yet has enough things to do, especially if you enjoy the outdoors.
We had the opportunity to go to Vegas for a few days, and from there we did some hotel hopping to experience more! Our first stop was New York - New York located right on the strip, towards the end (closer to the airport). I must admit, the hotel is much nicer than expected!
We stayed in their standard room with a king bed, and the room was very spacious!
The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were cozy. We really enjoyed our stay here and was pleasantly surprised!
The room was quite spacious as well, and the layout is actually kind of different from the standard rooms. The desk is off to the side and we get the entire wall of storage!
The bathroom was very standard, but it was clean and it did it's purpose. Nothing over the top, but had everything we needed..
Overall, the stay was truly amazing! It's nice that you can't predict what kind of room you would get in Las Vegas! Below is a room clip of our room during this stay.

During one of our driving trips to British Columbia, we wanted a quick sleep, so we stopped at Super 8 at Salmon Arm which is just off of the highway in a convenient location. Although the hotel is just off the highway and a railway going behind it, it wasn't as noisy as expected.
The room we stayed at was their 2 Double Bed Room and it wasn't the most spacious room, but it did it's job. It offered 2 double beds, a mini fridge, a desk, coffee maker and hair dryer! This hotel even comes with breakfast that starts at 6am!
The amount of space was a little crammed as you can see in the pictures - the fridge is right under the closet area, and that's where the luggage rack was. Good thing we're light packers and don't need a lot of space!
The bathroom was really standard, but it was clean! There's really no complaints with this hotel as it met our exceptions and in a way exceed it!
Overall, we had a great stay, although we didn't stay for the breakfast to start, we were on the road already. It was a short and sweet stay!
