“Great!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Was a great Location, Right in the middle of town and thirty seconds from the train station, the web site makes the place look smaller and older then it really is, very cute place at a great price, The bathroom ceilings were an open drop ceiling leaving a slight feeling like you could be spied on..... but over all, best price in town and was very clean.

This is a great little hotel, and fantastic value in Jasper. I've stayed in a half dozen or more of Jasper's hotels, from the JPL on down, but the Athabasca remains the place I keep going back to. No, there is no elevator or in-room coffee, but the large the rooms are spotless and filled with antiques. The hotel is central to everything. The restaurant is good, and the bar fun if you are interested. If you ask to be located away from the bar they will accommodate you. In fact, I've called to make reservations and been warned that the only rooms available were above the bar and would be noisy. The reservation desk staff helpfully suggested other hotels to try. As with nearly every hotel in Jasper the views are simply gorgeous.

Room Tip: When reserving ask to be located away from the bar if you are a light sleeper. The staff are very h...

The hotel is very conveniently situated in the heart of Jasper. It has a great Old World charm. The staff were most helpful. The only downside is it located over a pub, which is on the premises. Once the pub closes the patrons are very noisy for quite some time into the wee hours of the morning. This didn't help when trying to get a nights sleep. Otherwise it's an excellent facility and the rates were very reasonable for Jasper.

Room Tip: Stay as far away as possible from the pub!

Great value and great location.
Everything is close by and at walking distance.
Good service and bar down stairs isn't too bad.
Room was comfy and clean - though the step up into the bathroom nearly killed me a few times :)
Overall good stay.

Probably the best value in town.
Since I was traveling by train and planning on video filming the train action around Jasper yard/station, it was the perfect location. Within walking distance of the action, but without the noise from the idling diesel engines.
Restaurants and shops close by i.e. everything within walking distance. AND .... the price was right, too!

Stayed here on my first and second visit to Jasper. Great location bang in the centre of it all! Rooms are nice - have everything you need. Good service, near the pubs and restaurants all walking distance. Would definitely be my first choice going back. Great value for money too :)

Hotel very well located downtown. Nice view of the mountains. Room very clean and fancy.
Big plasma Tv screen. Near, you have restaurants, grocery store, laundrymat (very practical) if you spend more than a week in Jasper. Via Rail and Greyhound station is 2 minutes walk.
Tourism office is very near as well. Hotel has a resto-bistro as well. Room service from the resto. (food over priced though). Also a movie theater near. In the room, you have a sink but no toilet.
Hotel has common toilet and shower for men and women only.
Hotel has 3 levels but no elevator. Ice and soda-pop machine available.
Lobby decor is really nice and quite original. Check the picture
Courteous and nice staff.
Lots of tours available (pick ups and drop offs direct to hotel). Many walking trails to discover the beauty of Jasper. (just 2 minutes walk from hotel). You can see many wildlife animals in town.
Only inconvenience - some people let the door of the common bathroom bang during the night.
No respect for those who have a room just in front of the washroom.
However, had very nice stay. Would definitely re-book a room anytime.

Room Tip: Take a room to the front of hotel to have a better view of the mountains. Room away from the commo...
