Marmot Lodge
Ranked #6 of 17 Hotels in Jasper
Reviewed February 13, 2011

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.

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.

I recentely stayed at this hotel with colleagues. We were there two nights and ate four meals at the restaurant (all buffet). Best prime rib ever. The rooms were very clean and the Pool was the nicest pool I have ever swam in. Very warm & clean. They have two hot tubs as well. It is a short walk to Jasper town center.

The only complaint I have about this hotel is the bus parking. Buses should not be allowed to park along the rooms. They arrive early for skiers - back up and make alot of noise. They should have an allocated bus area away from the rooms.

The staff were really friendly and very helpful. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again!

This hotel was very nice. We have stayed at many "motels" over the years and this one was very nice. Especially when you consider the price ($75 / night) We stayed with our dogs and of course we were placed in a corner suite. I have stayed in a number of motels where the corner suites are always cold. but this room had a heater on every outside wall, which kept the room very warm.

Everything was clean and the staff was friendly.

My only complaints were that the double beds are not nearly big enough. My husband and I each slept in our own bed. As well as the resturant for dinner was over priced (we never ate there). But the Buffet breakfast was good and only $14 pp

Also, to mention... before you go to the pool, go to the front desk for towels.

The outdoor hot tub was really nice... except you should have shoes when walking between the hot tub and the pool as they put salt down to melt the ice (not so great for your feet) But the hot tub was actually hot.

All in all I would most definately stay there again!

On our last night a pack of moose camped out on our front lawn. There were there from about 9pm to 9am. They were 100m from our door so it was really nice to watch them just hanging out!

Hello! Thank you very much for your positive comments. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were able to catch a glimpse of wildlife from your room! With respect to the double beds, those are standard size double beds, but we do have many rooms with queen size and king size beds for next time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Marmot Lodge and wish you all the best for 2011!

We stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring Jasper village and the national Park area.

It's a motel-style hotel with a pool, hot tub and an on-site restaurant.

Our room was fine; clean with all the stuff you'd need and although on first look it seemed dated the bathroom, sink and fixtures/fittings were modern, clean and well looked after. The shower water pressure was rubbish but that's the only downside.

The hotel looks a bit shabby on the outside but is perfectly fine.

Come to the beautiful and quaint town of Jasper, and stay at the Marmot Lodge. Very comfortable, and within walking distance to shopping, both my husband and I loved strolling, with the mountains always in view. In the early morning, watch for elk crossing the train tracks. We want to go back!

The room had a cooker/fridge etc so we eat in at nightime which saved us a fortune. Facilites were very good but not excellent. The staff were very pleasant. Plenty of sights to see and White water rafting on the Fraser river was brilliant.

We stayed here as part of a Rocky Mountaineer tour. The hotel staff were very efficient at check-in and the room we were given was very spacious. This hotel has a very good swimming pool with jacuzzi, and a hot tub outdoors. When we used it we were the only patrons in it, a personal pool!
You get a fully-equipped kitchen with a huge fridge. The room decor was perhaps a little dated but tasteful.
The railway runs alongside the hotel so its great for catching some rail action if thats what you are there for. Jasper shops are a pleasant stroll away and there is a shuttle bus to the tramway.

Embers restaurant across the Car Park offers good value breakfasts and dinners if you do not wish to walk into Jasper centre.
