Over the years I have rarely stayed at Best Westerns - the quality is just too unpredictable. But limited lodging in Jasper led us to this one and we were pleasantly surprised. From the outside the hotel looks somewhat old and maybe not updated over the years. And the first room we were placed in had a strong tobacco odor even though the management on check-in emphasizes no smoking allowed. So they moved us to an identical room down the hall.
Once we settled in, we really began to appreciate it. It was large, very comfortable, with a full kitchen that we made us of every morning for breakfast. There was also a good seating area (small living room) adjacent to the kitchen, while the bed was in an alcove that was almost a completely separate room. This was particularly advantageous in June, when there is light in the sky until 11pm and the dawn starts at about 4am - the room remained dark enough that we could sleep despite the short night time hours.
The kitchen, as I said, is fully equipped - dishes, cutlery, fridge, microwave, stove, characteristic Canadian electric hot water kettle. It has bar style seating that gave us plenty of room to eat without having to perch on other furniture; we also used it to set up our iPads that were our link to home.
We did not use the hotel's pool although we did look in on it. Unlike most indoor hotel pools it seemed large enough to do real swimming in, and then also had a separate spa. We did, however, make use of the in-building coin laundry - very convenient and not expensive.
Only downside to this hotel is the parking, which is somewhat limited and which can require a long walk with luggage. Also, the building we were in had an odd design so there was no way to get to any room from the main parking area without going up or down stairs with luggage.
But overall we give this hotel a thumbs up.
Make sure the room is easy to get to without going up or down stairs, if you have a lot of luggage.
