Where to stay in Drumheller

If you want to embrace the town's Jurassic obsession, stay in a fun--if somewhat tacky--dinosaur-themed hotel. Most of the town's accommodations sit along the main roads of South Dinosaur Trail and Railway Avenue East, with a few budget-friendly motels, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, and cabins to the north of the river.
