“Quiet option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Thought the price a little steep even though only an hour from Jasper. Hinton was pretty empty and if I hadn't pre booked I would have trawled the strip to see which one offered the best discount. Cindy at check in was very helpful, the room was ok, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast started at 5am, great if you want an early start. Exercise room not open until 10am which is not much use.

We loved this hotel. When we walked in the lobby, it was very luxurious & the room was very nice as well. It was a great price being so close to Jasper National Park. The breakfast was very nice also. That evening we drove down the road to watch the Beavers build their dams- a must see while in Hinton.

Great service, friendly staff, Told us where to go for a wonderful nature walk. Also recommended a good restaurant for dinner. Clean room, hotel was very quiet. Price is just perfect for a couple traveling and only spending a short evening and night in the hotel.

Room Tip: We have always been at the back of the hotel and it has been very quiet.

This is a good option if you can't afford the high prices charged by hotels in Jasper during peak season. The hotel was a good price, clean, and quiet. The continental breakfast contained many items, including small omelets and other egg-based dishes which could be microwaved, and were really quite good. Also included French toast and pancakes which could be toasted, along with the usual suspects (toast, yogourt, etc.).

The hot tub was quite hot and the pool was really cold. The kids barely spent any time in the pool because of that.

Be aware that Hinton is a 45-minute drive to Jasper townsite. When booking the hotel, my friend was told that the hotel is only 15 minutes to Jasper - that's the time to the park gates, not to the townsite.

Located on highway 16. Despite this, the room was fairly quiet.

We stayed at this hotel for one night while travelling to Edmonton. It was a very basic hotel, with just the necessities. Breakfast was just OK, not alot of variety, but it was adequate. The hotel bed spreads were not white, so it was difficult to determine the true state of cleanliness of the beds. The hotel offered Aeroplan points for the stay. Price was very reasonable though and for the lack of money spent, we were satisfied.

my wife and I stayed there over a Saturday night,the front desk staff where very helpful.......our room was on the second floor ,one below the smoking floor (yes a hotel that still lets people smoke in there rooms).....on entering the life to our floor it smelt like someone had just smoked in the lift ,but on our floor it smelt fine........our room was a larger than normal but the bathroom was a bit on the small size, good sized lcd tv and fridge and a large air con unit which was a little loud at times, but my biggest problem was more on other guests and the doors to the rooms, it seemed that everytime someone closed there room door half the floor heard them do it (not so much fun at 2am and again at 3.30 am).......and when it comes to the continental breakfast if you do not expect much you will not be disappointed.( which I have found to be the norm at Canadian hotels).......all in all clean and basic hotel

Room Tip: ear plugs due to other unthinking noisy fellow guests

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!!
