“great price and location, very clean”
Reviewed May 13, 2009

My 23 year old son and I stayed here the first week of May for one night. No elevators. Very historic with lots of character. Free parking behind the hotel. We had two single beds in our room, with our own bathroom with shower, for $69/night. Hard to beat that price! Very clean. Good shower. Great location as it is close to everything. Had a drink in our room after we checked in and when we went downstairs, the dining room was closed........went to the bar (middle room) and they had a menu. We enjoyed a bison burger and the hockey game. My son went down to the Cinqo de Mai celebration at the disco and had a great time.

The previous entry by mblythin was spot on. I looked at 6 hotels before being directed to this one, right in the heart of town. It is the oldest hotel in town, as in 1929. The lobby was relatively impressive, the staff (particularly Francis), extremely helpful and the price excellent at only $76 per night including all taxes for 3 days Thu, Fri and Sat. The room was extremely clean, bright and well appointed, but was old fashioned and as expected it was small. As was the norm when this place was built, many of the rooms have no ensuite, only a sink in the room. As a guy travelling without the family, the location and price far outweighed the slight inconvenience of separate shower.
The place has free internet wireless and the front desk gave me free tickets to the local swim pool. Free parking was around the back. The restaurant and bars seemed popular. I thought this was a great find in Jasper, as did many young skiers and therefore the place can be a little noisy at night…. a fate no doubt afflicting any reasonably priced place in a ski resort.

A strange mix of styles in this good quality budget hotel but having just come from a hostel in Vancouver I'd have to disagree with the previous reviewer. It's nothing of the sort.

The hallway is rather grand and the rooms small but clean and well equipped with tv, hairdryer,sink etc and nicely furnished. The shared bathroom is small but very clean. It's in an excellent location just one block from the train station. I didn't try out the bar or restaurant but both seemed fine. Staff were very helpful and informative.

Very good value in an overpriced town.

The main hotel in Jasper and seems to survive on the bar. Well refurbed rooms seemed at odds with the rest of the hotel which was tacky. Looked more like a hostel than a hotel. Watch out for +5% Sales tax and +7% resort tax. Allow £100/night for room with your own bath. Avoid Sunday night when there is a disco that wakes the neighbourhood.

Stayed here for night on a holiday long weekend. it was fully booked. Room was shared bathroom and had been renovated but was quite small, adequate enough I suppose. Bathrooms were renovated and clean. Hotel location can't be beaten in town if you want to be close to shops , pubs , train station etc.
Our room was not airconditioned and was warm due to facing west afternnoon sun. Would be very hot during summer, ceiling fan may give some relief. Low season price was Ok, but would be overpriced during summer, as would all the town accomodation.

  • Liked — Close to train , shops

The entrance one to this hotel is reminiscent to a ‘Fairmont’ with its Victorian style entrance way encircled by animal heads, wood panels and soft lighting but this is where any grandeur stops. My room during my stay was small and sparingly furnished but was clean and inviting. The cost a one night stay was $90 this included a double bed and private bathroom and nothing else, seriously nothing else! Don’t expect an extra pillow in the room or a coffee machine or anything apart from a bed and a shower and TV.
I have visited Jasper many times and this is the first time I have stayed at the hotel, it has an affectionate local reputation, and I don’t know why. There are much better places to stay in jasper for the same price or only a few dollars more. This is the nosiest hotel I have ever stayed in ANYWHERE!!! Plus being in the mountains you would expect a decent room temperature, I woke up in the night shivering with the cold!! This is one of those places that survive through local reputation because the locals don’t have to stay there!!
Avoid this hotel, there are much better ones, just a block or two further out of town centre

Stayed there in Summer of 2007 while on a motorcycle ride through the Rockies. Was in a room with central bath, that is to say shared bathroom down the hall. The room was remarkebly adequate, featuring a tv, sink and comfortable bed. No AC but nice ceiling fan.

Given Jasper prices in the summer, this was a nice deal, especially when all I was looking for was a bed for the night.

As their website mentions, there is no elevator, so be prepared for a climb. Room was clean, staff helpful.
