“perfect place to stay - elk right outside your door!”
Reviewed May 1, 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. Our room was clean and quiet and the pool area was private and relaxing. I liked the location of this hotel as it's right on the main street. The service was friendly and welcoming.

The rooms are a good size and really clean, the staff are really helpful and pleasant. The hotel has an indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna and an outdoor hot tub. They are really well maintained and a real nice touch in a budget hotel. The restauarant onsite is well worth a visit, the prawn and scallop dish was the best dish in our two week trip and was better than some places that were three time the price. The herd of caribou that Jasper is well known for were right outside and we got some really awesome photos right off the balcony. The hotel is located on the edge of town about a 10 minute walk to the centre. We would defiantely recommend this place and cant wait to return.

We stayed here 2 nights ago and again when we were returning home. Loved the service we received when checking in, the cleanliness of the room, the very comfortable bed and when entering the room we were welcomed with the heat being already on. This wasn't just a one time experience, it was both times we were here.
We had a wonderful dinner in the Embers Steak House, enjoying the Sunday special of the baseball cut top sirloin, the attentive waiter and the 3rd game of the Canucks versus Chicago. Two nights later we again ate at Embers Steak House and again were pleased with the tenderloin we chose and the service. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this motel and restaurant!

the rooms here are clean and comfortable but the restaurant - Embers Steakhouse - situated near the hotel - is really bad. It supposedly has several awards but I wouldn't give it anything. I ordered a bison steak and it came to me tough as rubber. The strip loin I ordered as a substitute (which they allowed me) was also tough as leather. And it was served to me separate from my vegetables which I had to eat first while waiting for my steak to be done. No offer of money off or free item - nothing - for the inconvenience and bad meal. Find elsewhere to eat if you value a decent meal for your money - because it isn't cheap to eat here, either.

This hotel is situated at entrance in town of Jasper from Edmonton. I stayed few times there mainly taking in consideration price. The hotel is nothing to be excited just a clean room where to sleep. It has exterior corridor access hence just windows facing the exterior corridor. If you plan to spent some time at hotel than this is probably not the best choice, although there is a hot tub and a swimming pool with Jacuzzi and sauna but they are situated in some annex building so you need to get outside your room to use these facilities.It is OK in summer but not OK in winter at -30C.
Anyway if you are looking just for a decent place to sleep this is not a bad choice.

The heated pool and indoor jacuzzi were nice after a day of hiking and exploring. Our room (123) was right across from the pool which made the freezing wet walk in a bathing suit and Kodiaks more tolerable. We never got a chance to try the outdoor jacuzzi as there was one group that was consistently in it all afternoon.

Embers, the restaurant at the lodge has a decent breakfast buffet. $9 for continental and $14 for eggs and sausage. It was okay for an early morning wake up when nothing else was open, but The Other Paw Bakery is by far a better option. Their suppers were decent, but again, there area lot of better options in Jasper.

The rooms were cleaned quickly considering we were there during a long weekend. The pillows were soft, the internet is free, and really, what more can you ask for?

The only reason I can see that the Marmot Lodge might not work for everyone is if you are planning on walking throughout Jasper. There are quite a few Hotels and Lodges between here and the town. Not so bad in the summer, but at -30, it was mighty unpleasant. Gorgeous view of the mountains though, and a grassy park right across the street with benches to sit and enjoy the scenery.

I stayed with my 6 year old son on a father/son skiing weekend. The hotel itself is average, outside access rooms, every room has a mini fridge which was great for breakfast and packed lunches. Ours had 2 twin beds but there are ones with 1 king, average comfort level. The pool was good as long as you got there early, by 5 or 6pm all the skiers decended upon the pool and hot tub. The change room was freezing, not sure why.... The hotel is on the edge of town so we mostly drove into the main strip, but definately within walking distance. Front desk was helpful and accomodating.

For $80/night it was definately a good value but it does attract the young travellers who like to party into the wee hours of the night. The room walls are thin and interestingly enough, the outside wall was the thinnest because I could hear all the partying that was happening right outside my room. Good thing my son was asleep, but the teens outside were very loud after 11pm. No partying the second night though which was good.

The high speed internet, although free, was slow at best. Maybe where I was located, but again very slow most of the time. Used it mainly to check out weather conditions. Tried to use it for a video conference back home to the rest of the family and wasn't up to the task.

If you are looking for a no frills hotel while you are skiiing, and a good value, this is the place. Overall, a decent stay, we would stay again but perhaps ask for the second floor to avoid the loud people outside, but then loading up in the morning for skiing is slightly more difficult.

MarmotManager, Manager at Marmot Lodge, responded to this review, March 15, 2011
Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. I am glad that you feel we offer good value accommodation, but I am also sorry to hear that your sentiment was somewhat weakened by being disturbed by other guests. Jasper’s clientele mainly consist of skiers in the winter, and crowded pools and parties can sometimes occur in ski resort hotels. This is not specific to the Marmot Lodge. Our security team patrols the property at night to ensure a quiet environment for everyone, and they are just a radio call away should we need to interfere on a loud bunch. I appreciate that you mentioned the issues with our wireless Internet connection and note that it has been corrected. We will be happy to accommodate you on the second floor next time, and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
