Saskatchewan River Crossing is where the Icefields Parkway (Hwy, 93) crosses the Saskatchewan River. The Crossing is a dated looking resort motel (in fairness, it has to withstand harsh winter weather). It has a captive audience for its offerings to through travelers, because there are few places to stop along the Icefields Parkway. It offers basic services like gas, coffee,...

Imagine waking up to snow capped peaks 2800 meters and higher! Sunrise and sunsets like no other. The family run business does their best in the confines of a National Park! They have many upgrades as of 2016 and are pushing for more. You will not be disappointed to have this as your home base and National Parks staff only...

With not many places to stop in this area, we opted to try this place as a last resort. A try in the pub with a proper menu, they were not yet serving food at 4:00 pm, so we settled for the self serve restaurant. Two pulled pork sandwiches and a coffee each came to a bill of close to...

After reading mixed reviews we were wondering what to expect for our overnight stay, which we chose because of its position between Banff and Jasper. Firstly it's location is absolutely stunning, we managed to enjoy the amazing views on our arrival. Unfortunately snow the following morning meant we saw nothing and couldn't do the walk we had planned. Secondly our...

The Crossing Resort offers a one or two night stay over Thanksgiving weekend that includes accommodation and their amazing Thanksgiving dinner buffet. The resort is pet friendly at reasonable rates if you book far enough in advance - which was a real bonus for us and our two little dogs. The room was nice and tucked away in a quiet...

There is nothing for miles around and we needed a bathroom stop and food! We were a captive audience and settled on a hot dog each with a coffee! We were given an order number and told to sit down and wait....!! The order came and it was worth neither the money nor the wait - the hot dog was...

This is a great way to break the journey from Jasper to Banff. Basic motel rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurants and pub offered a choice of food, albeit a little expensive (but understandable given the remote location and captive audience). The location was amazing, brilliant views all around.

There is not much accommodation mid-way between Jasper and Banff so this fits the bill. Actual rooms are not very big with dated decor. No fridge or microwave. But there is a laundry on site. Also a gym and sauna. There is a pub with a large deck overlooking the mountains and a small supermarket and gift shop. As other...

Lake Louise and Banff aren't far away! We foolishly stopped here for a bite to eat on our way from Jasper to Banff. $23 for two tiny bowls of just ok chili and one hot tea. Rocky Mountain rip off! The place is run down looking and gas horribly expensive. Keep on driving and go to Lake Louise or Banff...

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were just passing through so we only stayed one night, but we are glad we did. We had a great view and the staff were very friendly. Check in was a breeze. The room was small but comfortable.
