6 Unique Hotels in Drumheller, Alberta

In this post, you’ll find some of the best places to stay in the Badlands hotels, motels, and yurts in Drumheller.

All of them are located close to the town centre with the exception of Bridgeview Hideaway – but at the end of the day, everything is close by in Drumheller.

One thing we love about Drumheller is that even though it’s a small town, there are still some great options for places to stay!

You can experience an awesome glamping experience in the countryside next to some coulees or you can stay right in town at one of the big hotels.

Bridgeviews might be our favourite place to stay in Drumheller!

It really isn’t a hotel at all but it is such a cool place to stay near Drumheller it has to be on this list. We stayed at Bridgeviews for 3 nights and loved our stay there.

Even though it’s in the countryside there is free wifi in case you do need it and it works pretty well!
