“Best Hotel in Hinton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

My family have travelled to Hinton/Jasper for the last five years....this hotel was by far the best we've ever stayed in...clean, friendly, beautiful hotel!! We had a balcony with a view of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, and the front desk staff was excellent at recommending places to eat!

Room Tip: We had a suite on the 4th floor with a balcony!!

Close to the outskirts of Hinton, it is not a long drive into Jasper and half the cost of a hotel in the park. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
The front end staff were very nice to deal with.
The breakfast was the typical continental food you would expect.

The hotel seems just went thru a major renovation. Although I am not a fan of the interior design but everything looks good and clean to me. The firm pocket coil beds are lovely. Staff are friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast is included with typical selection (don't expect much other than fill your stomach). Location is good too with McDonald, Walmart, Canadian Tire, Auto repair service all within walking distance. Beaver Boardwalk is just a few km away.

The rooms are average. There was not anything outstanding about this hotel but nothing unpleasant to report either. The only thing that stands out are the very comfortable pillows. The rates are great for this level of accommodation.

Very good place to stay, the staff are super friendly and will go out of their way to help you. I stay here 22 days out of a month and you'd think they'd be sick of seeing me and picking up after me, not the case. They still have the same attitude and welcome ness as the first day I have ever met them. I'd stay here any day even recommend all of my friends, family to stay here. I haven't had this good of service from any other hotel I have ever stayed in my whole life.

We called to book a room en route from Jasper. We arrived late in the evening and the desk clerk had no record of our reservation, then found it but it had been made for the wrong month and wrong day. Eventually sorted it out and managed to get a room.

Room was decent, not that comfortable or memorable, rather noisy, and the free breakfast was inedible.

From the sound of the phone conversations with the front desk as we were checking out, other guests were complaining about cleanliness of their rooms.

We selected this motel in Hinton based on other reviews On Trip Advisor. We're glad we did. The room was decent size and very clean. Beds were comfortable. Besides having the usual microwave and small refrigerator there were cabinets with dishes, glasses and eating utensils. These were real dishes and silverware, not plastic.

When we were hauling our stuff into the hotel the desk staff saw that we had a bottle of wine. They mentioned that there were real wine glasses (not plastic) in our room. We were so surprised. What a nice touch. When we went out to dinner we mentioned that this is the first motel we stayed in that had actual wine glasses in it. Upon returning from dinner they presented us with a gift bag of 4 wine glasses for our stay at the next motel on our trip. They didn't need to do this but it shows how much they cared about making our stay pleasant and memorable.

The breakfast in the morning was self service but very good. They had eggs, french toast and pancakes individually wrapped and ready to heat in the microwave. All were tasty. There was also toast, bagels, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee etc.
