“Loud street noise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Breakfast did have hard boiled eggs which was nice and the hotel offered rags so we could clean our bike windshields. The room guide listed a pool and hot tub but it must have been mass produced, for when I asked the hotel staff where it was they made me feel like an idiot. The street noise was fairly loud and the bed was squeaky.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

This hotel is located on the main road in Hinton. Easy access and close to everything. However, there are no WiFi in the room and the lobby connection having problem. the front desk staffs are not knowledgeable about the issue; however, they are very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is quite adequate for the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the back side away from the main highway.

We stayed 2 nights while visiting Jasper, and found this hotel to be very satisfactory. The breakfast was much better than most Econo Lodges, with a decent selection of foods. The rooms were large and clean. The wifi was a little iffy, not working the second evening, but there was a decent lobby computer that was working.

Typical, side of the highway, "cheap" hotel... Fine if you just need to overnight it. Although personally I think I'd rather pay $10 more and stay somewhere a little better next time.

Checked in very late (but of course they have the room guarantee as it's being held with my credit card), however the front desk person seemed irritated to have to check me in and hummed and haaed a long time about finding me a room and how busy it was and did I know I would have to pay $20 for my dog (I was fully aware). Anyway he found me a room after quite a while clicking around on the computer!

Room had that musty smell. The room was not cleaned very well and lots of staining on the floor and couch. You know it's not clean when your dog seems disgusted and doesn't want to walk around on the floor and would rather just hide in her kennel!!
Room was terrible for sound! You could hear every door slam, people walking down the halls, etc!

No wifi in the room. Not sure if there is supposed to be free wifi, but in any event I wasn't able to get a connection at all!

The breakfast room was pretty big size but even on the weekends breakfast is only until 9am, so you have to get up early and if you go close to 9am it's BUSY (if the hotel is full) as everyone is rushing to get something to eat! Good variety for breakfast though - bread, bagels, hard boiled eggs, yoghurt, premade pancakes (that you microwave or toast), cereal, coffee, juice.

All in all not bad, but I would try somewhere else next time.

I have nothing particularly negative to say about the Econo Lodge in Hinton, except that the wifi connection was poor and unusable from the room. Otherwise, I have nothing overly positive to say about the conditions or amenities. Clean and cheap.

It's not the Ritz but it does the job. Rooms were clean & comfortable, close to plenty of fast food, ie Dominos, KFC. Gas Station practically next door, plenty of parking. The best part was a Tim Hortons across the street, came in very handy to warm you up in the pelting rain (it was the day before Calgary started flooding really bad). Price was right, and you're not paying anywhere near the ridiculous rate for lesser rooms in Jasper.

Good Decent room - comfortable beds - standard breakfast including milk, cereals, juice, bread, fruit, yoghurt - enough parking for everyone - right on the road and very near to Dominos, Tim Hortons and other near by food options.. Spouse and kids didn't complain -can't ask much.. The front staff was also very helpful and accommodating. Couldn't ask more for the price they charged. The price I paid was less than half I would have paid if I had stayed at Jasper and in fact the drive drive from Jasper to Hinton was extremely picturesque..Recommend folks to stay in Hinton rather than at Jasper where everything is charged at exorbitant rate..
