I happened to book the last (reasonably-priced) room available in Jasper for the May Long weekend just days before we were to arrive, and it happened to be here, at Jasper House Bungalows. I was not disappointed!!
Yes, a hot tub and/or pool would be nice. Yes, including breakfast would have been a bonus. The atmosphere is rustic, not modern. But for location, service, and staff...I don't think I could have done better.
Even at full capacity, it was quiet here. 3km south of town and right on the Athabasca River... perfect. Taking walks along the river were serene, breathtaking, soul-reviving. There is a private beach and miles of trails. Heavenly!
The front desk staff had warned us upon check-in of a large grizzly bear in the area, seen on the property days before. As we headed for dinner that first evening, we were blessed to see him meandering in the ditch at the corner of Highways 16 and 93. Not sure I would have felt secure tenting in the area, but the wood cabins provided more than enough protection.
The staff (front desk and restaurant) was super-friendly, informative, helpful. The dinner we ate in the restaurant was yummy (maple walnut Arctic char...mmmmmm). The room had a mini-fridge. The heater worked at night. The beds were comfy (I slept like a log).
The only things I would change, if they were possible, would be to make the showers bigger and the showerheads higher! One can barely turn around without knocking elbows or having a body part sticking out the curtain, and a squat is necessary to get water onto your head if you are taller than 5'6". LOL That aside, I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to friends (I already have)!
