“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

For the price there isn't a lot. Gym only opens at 8:00 which makes it difficult to have a workout before work. No newspaper at my door. Service desk had one staff and six people waiting to check in. Very limited TV channels. Overall, exceedingly average to say the least.

We appreicate you taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. Our exercise room does open up at 8AM as we have guest rooms located in close proximity to the gym. We evaluate each early request for the gym on a nightly basis and try to put guests who request it close by so we can open it up early for them to use.
I will definatly look into the front desk service that was recieved and to look for a way to improve on faster check in times.
Again I thank you for bringing these items to our attention so we can improve as a hotel.

Like most people we stayed for one night on our way to Jasper and our journey down the parkway to Banff. Since we left Edmonton in the late afternoon we knew we just needed a place to sleep so we could be on our way again in the morning.

This hotel is right off the highway and easy to find. Compared to the prices in Jasper it wa a much better value. We ate at one of the restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and it was decent. The free breakfast and wiifii are always a plus.

Over all the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable, a good option for those traveling in and around Jasper and the area.

I was here twice on business and finally got around to writing a review. I personally found their service APALLING. I wasn't given the room I reserved. Was loud, and the front desk didn't seem too concerned. I even gave this place a second chance and still got the same poor service as I did originally. Hot breakfast in the morning is nice; its your tyipcal HIE amenities. I would honestly go down the road to the regular Holiday Inn & Suites and try your luck there, at least its closer to town and has a restaurant inside the hotel.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator, especially if there are a lot of contractors in town!

Stopped at this hotel in Hinton as it was just off the highway. It is part of the few places towards the east end of town. The room was clean and warm, a bit small but came with a fridge to put our road snacks in. Breakfast included typical continental breakfast items but strangely without any fruit. It did have hot ham, little omelets and a cool pancake maker. I would probably stay here again while stopping at Hinton.

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay at our hotel. We value feedback especially in areas about the breakfast. As a hotel we look for fresh fruit items that can be peeled for public safety so we usually have banana's as one of the items available. I will check with the breakfast bar host to see where this item was located.
We look forward to you returning when traveling through the Hinton area.

We booked this hotel through Hotels.com. Had we been informed that not all services at this hotel would be provided, we would have booked elsewhere. As seniors, we look for and expect what is advertised and appreciate the amenities we pay for. We should not have had to pay full price for not all the amenities advertised.

We are sorry to hear that your recent stay with us was not as great as you would have liked. Over the Holidays we give our team some time off to share with their families and advertise it on our websites. As a third party website was who you booked through I will look to better this service in the future to avoid situations where our customers are not told about the limitations at the Hotel.

Stayed at hinton on our way to Jasper for one night. This is a very nice new hotel on the way to Jasper. Very nice king room with very professional staff, we even had a follow up call after chech in to sewe if everything was ok. I really appreciated this call and it is a nice touch to make sure you are welcome. Very comfortable bed and clean room. Breakfast was very good and their are lots of dining options in town. i would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upper floor and at the back. You may get road noise if facing the highway.

We stayed there for 2 nights during the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday, and we loved our stay. The room was clean and spacious with complimentary Internet access. We loved the breakfast a lot, and I think they are ideal for non big eaters like us.
The only "drawback" is it's 1 hour driving from Jasper. But no complaint from us: the scenery was so beautiful and we saw lots of moose/elk/deer when driving to/from Jasper.

Thank you for taking the time to share your stay with others. We value the feedback we get from our guests and what makes their stay enjoyable. We are very happy to hear about all the wildlife you seen on your drive to the park daily. It definately makes the drive shorter when you get to enjoy the view as well.
