We were only able to stay at the Sawridge Inn for one night. We drove in from Red Deer, and since we arrived late in the season we did not anticipate their still being so full - we booked only 3 weeks prior to our stay.
The people working the reception desk were very nice to work with and I give them a hats off for their cordiality and politeness with guests, one of which was not so nice while we were checking in. Our room was one of the "inside" rooms that overlook the pool area, which is in a large atrium that also houses the restaurant. A practical idea actually for making an "outdoor" pool accessible year-round.
For the price that we paid, I can stay at any number of Hilton or Marriott properties here in Europe in major cities, and get a very modern up-to-date decorated room, which the Sawridge Inn is not. Their rooms are VERY comfortable mind you, also rather large actually, with good quality furniture, but the decorations are becoming dated and are in need of a upgrade. The TV was, for example, a large screen tube monster in an equally large space devouring wooden furniture piece. Our bed was very comfortable, and we slept like logs. The bath room was quite nice, and spotlessly clean.
Walter's Dining Room, in the Atrium, is very good. The service is outstanding, the food quality very good. Yes I will go back. But it is a little overpriced as far as I am concerned. Two salads, two wines, and two steaks came to $120.00 which I find a little too high for an in-hotel dining room.
But would I go back? Of course I would. I have stayed in 4 different hotels in Jasper, and I would definitely go back to the Sawridge Inn.
If you prefer sleeping with an open window, ask for an outside facing room with a balcony.
