“A comfortable 2 night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This hotel was one of three included in our cross Canada Rail/Hotel package. It has a good location, right opposite to the railway and close to the shopping and restaurant area. The reception area is pleasant and service is friendly and efficient. Reception pointed us to a tour company where we could book a tour for the following day. This was closed so we went back to reception where a staff member went out of his way to book the tour for us. Our room here was large, clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

A great location for Jasper. We arrived by train, an the hotel is situated across the road. Don't worry about the noise of the trains....they're only every 2 days! A great place to stay for exploring Jasper town, the other hotels were a 10-15 minute walk away.
The pub below is good fun, full of interesting characters and worth having a drink in (appears popular with the locals).
The rooms were acceptable, clean, large, decor slightly dated but it was warm and cosy. The complimentary coffee was awful! I think this hotel appeals to the 'younger crowd' and skiers, saw several groups of party goers and hot tub always occupied. Has an apres Ski feel to the place. Having said that we were not effected by noise. Good wifi. Lot's of information offered.

pros-
- quiet (im sure that was mostly due to the fact that it is low season though and although
there is a train station across the street they didn't disturb me in the least)
- very cozy room; bedding was quite comfortable
- fantastic little pub located in lobby with exceptional pricing!
- my bill came to $98.00 total for a room with two beds (not at all the tourist trap i was expecting!)
- while my friends found the room to be outdated i thought it was very cute and much
better than similarly priced accomodations in the area
- perfect location! it is located right on the main strip near several gift shops, restaurants, a
cinema as well as a train station across the street which was perfect
- although i personally felt it was too cold to take advantage of their rooftop hottubs I
think it's an absolutely brilliant idea! the view from the rooftop is just gorgeous


cons-
- unfortunately i was aghast to find quite a few pubic hairs sitting in my bathtub when i arrived. fortunately i had taken a shower before i got to the hotel, and will wait to take another upon leaving
- there were also a few hairs on the floor of my bathroom
- the hotel doesnt have any way to book online and when i called them they were not willing to book me a room over the phone. fortunately, at this slow time of year it did not pose a problem
for me but i would not stay here during the busy season as it would be quite hard to secure a room before arriving.
- the final qualms i had with the room are very minor: no ice bags to line the ice buckets, and the tv picture was quite fuzzy

all in all i really enjoyed my stay here, and other than the unfortunate surprises in the bathroom i found the room to be very clean and well maintained. i will most certainly be staying here again when i return to jasper!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 2nd floor as to be further away from the noisy pub

First let me thank you for posting such a comprehensive and informative review. It is always appreciated when our guests take the time to pass along information - particularly information that is helpful for future visitors.

Second, I am so sorry that your bathroom was not cleaned to our regular standard and can only apologize. Had you notified the front desk of your concerns we would have been pleased to send up a staff member to completely re-do the bathroom for you.

Third, I am not sure why you were unable to book on-line. We offer online bookings through several online agencies as well as through the availability/reservations button on the upper right side of our website - www.whistlersinn.com. Online bookings cannot be made on the day of arrival simply to avoid any potential overbooking issues during our peak times.

Again, thank you for your comments. We will work hard to further improve our service.

We were found this room in August 2011 by ViaRail, when the Canadian train was running very late, and we have neglected to review until now as we have been travelling the world...

The hotel is nice and central (opposite the rail station), and our family room (with a huge double bed and a pull-out sofa-bed for the kids) was large and clean. We slept well, but were disappointed that the hot tubs were closed in the morning, when we got up early hoping for a soak. We didn't have breakfast, but the rest of the hotel looked to be in good order. I think there was free wifi available...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments. We are sorry that you were unable to use the hot tubs in the morning prior to your departure but we do occasionally need to shut them down for cleaning and maintenance in order to comply with local Health regulations. We try to have a minimum of one tub open during all regular hours of operation from 9am to 11pm daily.

The look of this hotel is deceiving, as I was quite surprised by the nice clean rooms. Good location in jasper near all amenities. The hot tub on the roof was spectactular ! Unfortunatly we were in a room above the bar and the noise was unbearable. This hotel I found to be more for the young party goers and skiers. If you stay here make sure you get a room away from the bar and back alley.

Room Tip: This is not a family friendly hotel.

WHistler Inn is in a great spot right in the middle of town. The hotel was very clean and staff were all really friendly. Make sure you take a visit to the hot tub on the roof it has spectacular views of the mountains all around. The pub downstairs we found also good for a night cap before bed (the sell take aways too!!).

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pub

Centrally located right in downtown jasper, close to everything. Good little cheap pub downstairs. Two hot tubs on the roof of the hotel with views of the mountains. A must after a hard day of hiking!
