Late getting in. Very polite staff. Very helpful. Changed room for a quieter floor no problem. Advised of a good place to park truck in safe area. Gave directions to where to find a good meal. Room was good size and was clean. Very pleased with stay there and would stay again.

Spent a night here on our way through town. This hotel had everything you could ask for, clean comfortable beds, large well equipped rooms, a super friendly and helpful staff, nice continental breakfast was included. The hot tub was the best one yet on our travels throughout BC and Alberta. We paid cash, and this was not a hassle. Our only complaint is that it was very hard to find at night as the name was not lit up, and we almost went and stayed at a different hotel - certainly glad we did eventually find it.

Room Tip: Hard to find at night

We spent a night at this hotel in Hinton Alberta. This is the second time that we have stayed here. It is a pet friendly hotel that actually gives a little gift to the pet. there is a ten dollar charge for your pet. Attached to this gift is a card giving the guest information regard places to take your pet for a walk or call of nature. The rooms are clean and well appointed. Check in was a breeze as was the check out. They have a continental breakfast that meets the guests needs.

Room Tip: if you are a smoker there are smoking rooms available. Stay on the north end of the hotel as it is n...

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.
