The Aspen is a great place to stay, was in Smithers for 5 nights for sons Hockey School, very close to arena, the room was clean and large, had 2 double beds and a set of bunk beds. Staff was very friendly, and accommodating, allowed me to extend our check out time by 2 hours. Restaurant was also very good

I was hesitant to stay here because of some of the reviews but was very impressed by how each bad review was promptly answered so we decided to try it. First of all, the photos are a good representation of the rooms. The room was large, quiet and very clean-I checked it out thoroughly! The bedspread looked new and there... More

I've been impressed each time I've stayed here at the effort the owner is putting into improving the property. The furniture is beautiful solid wood, the fixtures are high quality, the masonry on the exterior is really nicely done. The rooms have always been clean and the staff are nice. It has definitely avoided the depressing half-baked renos seen on... More

We stayed in a suite with a separated living space and bedroom, very roomy. Prob wasn't the cleanest place in the world, but it was fine. The internet didn't work and when I went down to reception to see if there was a problem they didn't seem to be bothered enough to fix it. Restaurant was very good but was... More

Do not be fooled by the nice photos on line they DO NOT REPRESENT the actual place. The bedspreads/comforter were old, lumpy and appeared to have seen better days a long time ago, thankfully we had extra blankets and did not use the provided comforters..there was a noticeable odour upon entering the room of dirty carpet, nothing in this room...

Dear Gerold. I was disappointed to hear that your time @ The Aspen was not enjoyable. After our phone call we have refunded your CC. It is however unfortunate that this issue was only brought to our attention at the last minute and that our front desk was not given the chance to rectify the situation. Our front desk agent... More

I have stayed here a few times but never really noticed how crappy the WIFI is until this visit. I have been disconnected once every 10 or so minutes. The hotel has a restaurant on site but does not offer room service. Really? You don't think it would be that hard to figure out. The room is tidy and clean... More

Because of my job I stay there at least twice a week. Since the beginning of this year, their wi-fi has not worked properly. It continuously disconnects. After repeated complaints to the front desk staff, it still has not improved. I think good internet service has become as much of a mainstay as TV in hotel rooms these days and... More

Dear Terhel. Thank you for your review. We have been lobbying hard for the providers to increase the quality of internet provided. This is not an issue of our equipment as we have invested a great deal of time and money into our wireless. The issue is that the wireless providers who offer service in this area only offer small...

The room was what one would expect from a typical small town roadside motel. However it was comfortable and clean. The staff were really nice and as value for money there are no complaints. The breakfast was hearty and again the staff make or break any establishment. The servers here again were very friendly and made one feel welcome. I... More

Started off good, clean, comfy beds, pet friendly. Awoke in the morning at 7:30 to loud diesel trucks outside of the room idling, and the smell of diesel filled the room. This is life in a northern motel in the winter, I guess. Had a drink and nachos at the bar the night of the stay and they were tasty.... More
