The Crossings is like an oasis of commercialism in the midst of park country. The store/restaurant has the feel of a truck stop, but the motel (yes, this is more of a motel than a resort) is set back and you really don't see/feel what's going on down closer to the road. The motel has a great, kitchy feel and... More

The Crossing is in a fantastic location for exploring the Icefield Parkway. Though tired, the accommodation is comfortable (no air conditioning), and clean. The prices at the restaurant, pub, store, gas-station, etc are ridiculous. Others have commented that the location is not remote enough to justify the prices, and I agree. It is on a highway, an hour's drive from... More

The Crossing is handily located where the David Thompson Highway joins Highway 93, running north and south through Banff and Jasper. The scenery was great in every direction. We stayed in a cabin-style room with basic furnishings, but it was clean, quiet and comfortable, and met our expectations. Food was expensive, but a bowl of chili and a hunk of... More

The Crossing has been adequately described by previous writers: it is rustic with paint peeling off the deck, but the view of the mountains was fabulous and the room/beds were very comfortable. No Wifi, no hair dryer, etc but simple is good too. However, beware the 30-day cancellation policy!! BTW, the restaurant was very good. Staff were young but very... More

Previous reviews had established low expectations. Couldn't have been more delighted! Cozy down duvets, coffee-makers in the room, beautifully tended flowers and landscaping. Clean rooms with no noise transfer. Not new, but clearly good effort being made. Loved all the hummingbirds too, and of course, stunning views!

There is no new ownership at The Crossing, However the fresh renovations and changes to the facility have been made possible in large part due to the renewal of the lease. Without this the companies hands were tied to a great extent. The owners are looking forward to many more upgrades throughout the resort and historically took great pride in... More

This motel / resort at Saskatchewan Crossing on the Icefields Parkway probably has one of the best locations anywhere in the Rockies. The views are 180 degree and are spectacular. Reasonably close to superb hiking trails and the Columbia Icefields. The last time we stayed was in 1980 … not much has changed since then. The rooms are basic …... More

We stopped at this motel during our road trip around Banff and Jasper. The check in was quick, staff were very pleasant. The room was outdated but clean and bed comfortable. The problem was the bar/restaurant/gas station pricing. Everything was double or triple cost as if we were staying at an airport with vendors that have no clue what things... More

Thank you for your feedback. We rely on accurate information in order to make changes and upgrades to better serve our customers. Perhaps you misunderstood the Pub offering. The indoor B-B-Q provides a fun experience for our guests and is very popular. The cost you refer to also includes Chili or Soup and Apple baked beans as well as Potato... More

My stay at this resort was a very pleasant one! It was the perfect way to experience nature and the beauty of the Rockies. The front desk staff was real welcoming and friendly. My room was very clean, comfortable and the view from my window was unforgettable. The flowers on site were picture worthy as well. There are several things... More

Reviewers all love this location, me too but everyone doesn't think about the pricing reflecting the absolutely gorgeous "remote" nature of the site. Come on, this place isn't in town and it is seasonal. What do u you expect? Place is a little tired on the outside but comfortable rooms, great food and all the other amenities you expect from...

This place is old and tired and over priced but is set within beautiful mountains. The room was basically clean but nothing special, the pub was a lot of fun, the restaurant was OK expect to pay more.....likely because its so isolated. The cafeteria in the morning is grossly overpriced for what you get. The staff are nice though, the... More
