“VERY dated cabin interior, VERY dirty inside, NICE VIEW THOUGH!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Overall I would rate my stay at Tekarra Lodge as "tolerable". I expected a much newer cabin for 300/night. I also expected it to be clean. We found hair in the sink, shower, and on the 1950's gas stove. We also found sesame seeds in the bed indicating that they were most likely not washed since the last visitor(s). I would recommend "Alpine Village" cabins which are on the same road, and cost about the same. They are quite classy and modern in appearance, although you'll have to cross the street to attain the view available from the door of your Tekarra cabin.

Room Tip: If you do stay here, choose cabins 1-7 as they are right on the river, and have the most scenic view...

It is going to be a great experience for sure. Great quality cabins with all equipment necessary.
Very convenient for an stay in Jasper.
Main inconvenients: high price at summer season, and smoke smell at the room. The space in the cabin is somehow limited

It was my first stay at Tekarra Lodge. It's in a beautiful location, quiet and tranquil. The cabin was overlooking the river so you could sit outside and enjoy the peacefulness. Three of us stayed there, needing 3 beds. The pull out bed was not the most comfortable and had only one blanket so needed to request a second blanket the next day.
Breakfast at the restaurant was good, although it was a buffet the service was slow because only one person was working to clear tables, put out food, etc. We found out later that the restaurant is not owned by the Lodge.

My first stay at Tekarra Lodge was in 1956. Since that time every time we are in Jasper we have returned to Tekarra Lodge for our accommodation. We always had a very enjoyed time, but since it is now a Coast Hotel and improvements have been made it is even more enjoyable than ever. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting, overlooking the rivers.

We have been staying at Tekarra since 1987 and have never had anything but a wonderful time. The location is beautiful and we have always had friendly and helpful service. On our recent visit, the heater was not working and I walked down to the office to mention it. There was someone at our cabin to repair it before I even returned. The lodge is pet friendly and the charge for bringing your pet is quite reasonable ($25 per stay, not per night). The cabins are pricey but reasonable for what you get. My only regret is that the family who used to run the reasonably priced and wonderful Greek restaurant are no longer there and the restaurant has become upscale and very pricey. The appetizers start around $16 and entrees begin at about $29. It doesn't seem to fit with the rustic feel of the location and no one in my family could find anything they wanted on the menu. There did not seem to be a lot of diners so hopefully they will change back to something more in keeping with the casual feel of the lodge.

Room booked was "Lodge Room", twin beds; Lodge rooms are numbered "A" thru "J", and are located over restaurant. Rooms are the size of a large closet. No shelf in bathroom for even a wash bag. No where to put a suitcase. Plugging in a mobile phone to recharge required grubbing around on the floor and locating an extension cord pushed under a micro sized table that held a coffee maker (and little else). The cold water faucet dripped all night and the toilet randomly filled for a few seconds, and draining, only to repeat the cycle again at irregular intervals. At $169 plus taxes this room had poor amenities and was over priced. I would never stay here again, or would I recommend it to friends.

1. Why does Jasper Tourism allow such: this camp ground to rate itself for other than for what it is?
2, It's accommodations for campers and hikers, not for regular comfort
beds squeezed into corners of cabins, have to be a deer to jump over your mate,to get into bed, awful. Fraudulent rates $600 per nite plus $75.for early check out . Rough gravel pot hole entrance, gravel lanes, get to your hut & there's no mat at the front door to wipe your shoes. The rates should be equal to Motel "6" not to a Lodge. Trip Advisor get in touch with Jasper Tourism and get this sorted out in a hurry. This kind of abuse and false rating detroys tourism in Jasper

Room Tip: I t's rip-off unless you're a hiker or camper and can negotiate camper rates

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Tekarra Lodge enjoys an enviable location within Jasper National Park, the largest of the national mountain parks in Canada, 4200 square miles in area. Jasper became a National Park in 1907 and the town site's first buildings were constructed in 1911, then Jasper was known as the town of Fitzhugh. Tekarra Lodge is located across the river from the base of its namesake, Tekarra Mountain. Tekarra Mountain, towering 2635 meters above us is named for the Iroquois guide and hunter who accompanied Sir James Hector on his expedition through the Rocky Mountains during the mid-1850s. The skill and devotion of the guide Tekarra saved the lives of the members of that expedition. He sustained and fed them during the grim and bitter winter with caribou that he hunted on the mountain. It was because of this devotion that Sir James named the mountain Tekarra. The lodge grounds form the banks of the confluence of the Athabasca and Miette rivers. This land is maintained in its natural state, and offers a wonderful study for nature lovers. Tekarra's marked nature walk, and the Indian totem poles give pleasure to all ages. The area and history in and around the property is a fascinating one. One of the first settlements of Jasper called Henry House may have been located adjacent to the lodge on the south side of the river. Even today, there is still indication of an old homestead and some outbuildings. Tekarra Lodge was built circa 1947 and initially consisted of only a few cabins, some of which are standing today. ... more   less
