We were travelling from Jasper to Banff and stopped for the night at the Saskatchewan River Crossing hotel. The rooms were small but adequate, the restaurant did excellent food for dinner and had a great breakfast. The views at sunrise were awesome. This is just a lovely place to rest while travelling down the majestic rockies.

It's the only gas station for miles, and if you haven't packed a lunch or snacks it's your only option. The restaurant was s buffets - stand in line. The cafe - stand in line. Overpriced - lunch for 4 was $70.00 - for burgers and fries!!!! No beverages even! Needs an upgrade badly. Suggest to fill up and keep... More

This is a busy gas station, gift shop, restaurant. The only thing around for miles. Stopped for gas, very efficient way of handling customers. Decided to grab a bite at the restaurant. There are ready made sandwiches to go, but decided for a sit down lunch. Had the pulled pork sandwich and it was big enough to share, Very good!

We made the mistake of driving along the icefield parkway and not bringing a packed lunch or eating at the visitor centre at the glacier visitor centre, so we were really hungry by the time we arrived at the first available restaurant at the crossing. It was busy-a popular coach stop and cafeteria/canteen where you can get food quickly. But... More
