“Great, family friendly hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Our family came for a long weekend get-away. We are already planning a return trip. Jasper is beautiful and this resort surprised us. The food was better than expected and at a decent price. The pool was quite busy at night - but good to see families enjoying it.

We haven't stayed at this hotel for many years. We booked 3 nights, were welcomed by hot cookies at the front desk. They had a great display of a Bear, Wolf and Wolverine in the hotel. The kids loved seeing the animals and asking questions about the wildlife.

We had the buffet breakfast in Walter's, it was good, it would have been nice to have more of a change in the menu on the buffet. The Fruit smoothies of the menu are amazing and I wish I had tried them the first day.

We enjoyed the bathrobe in the room to walk to the pool in. the pool is in a nice open area, the hot tub was always full with people. We did have our kids as well as other guest talked about getting swimmers rash one night and they did change the water then next morning, So Thank you for that.

We enjoyed the fire pit outside the front doors at nights and during Earth Hour to watch the clear sky and stars. That was a nice touch with the free Hot Chocolate.

We enjoyed our stay overall and would go back with no worries. The staff was friendly and helpful when asked questions.

Cheers, Kimberly

Room Tip: We overlooked the inside of the hotel, so we could see when the pool was not full with people, lots...

Dear FamilyFunFinder
Thank you very much for posting your comments. We are all thrilled to hear your family had both an enjoyable stay with us and a great holiday to Jasper. We have passed on your suggestion for more variety (on our breakfast buffet) to our executive chef. Thank you for this.
We have a crew of trained maintenance personnel who take water samplings of our pool and Jacuzzi three times a day - every day, for analysis. During periods of heavy use, the Jacuzzi may require to be drained occasionally. We certainly look forward to your next visit to beautiful Jasper National Park.

This hotel was not bad, but it wasn't fantastic either. It was a clean bed, not bad food, and prompt service. For me it was just good. I don't really have anything to complain about, but nothing stood out as amazing either.

I don't really remember anything about the bed...but I was so tired after a day of skiing I probably could have slept on a sidewalk and been happy :)

Dear albertaroadtrip,
Thank you for your comments. Nice to see you had a good strong day of skiing, and that you enjoyed our amazing outdoors here in Jasper National Park to the fullest. Note that you may see a considerable change in our property through the next few months, as both a section of the lobby (entrance area) and some of our guest rooms (one third) will undergo some major upgrades and renovations, scheduled for late spring and fall. We look forward to seeing you again.

We were only able to stay at the Sawridge Inn for one night. We drove in from Red Deer, and since we arrived late in the season we did not anticipate their still being so full - we booked only 3 weeks prior to our stay.

The people working the reception desk were very nice to work with and I give them a hats off for their cordiality and politeness with guests, one of which was not so nice while we were checking in. Our room was one of the "inside" rooms that overlook the pool area, which is in a large atrium that also houses the restaurant. A practical idea actually for making an "outdoor" pool accessible year-round.

For the price that we paid, I can stay at any number of Hilton or Marriott properties here in Europe in major cities, and get a very modern up-to-date decorated room, which the Sawridge Inn is not. Their rooms are VERY comfortable mind you, also rather large actually, with good quality furniture, but the decorations are becoming dated and are in need of a upgrade. The TV was, for example, a large screen tube monster in an equally large space devouring wooden furniture piece. Our bed was very comfortable, and we slept like logs. The bath room was quite nice, and spotlessly clean.

Walter's Dining Room, in the Atrium, is very good. The service is outstanding, the food quality very good. Yes I will go back. But it is a little overpriced as far as I am concerned. Two salads, two wines, and two steaks came to $120.00 which I find a little too high for an in-hotel dining room.

But would I go back? Of course I would. I have stayed in 4 different hotels in Jasper, and I would definitely go back to the Sawridge Inn.

Room Tip: If you prefer sleeping with an open window, ask for an outside facing room with a balcony.

I cannot believe that the previous reviews for this 'luxurious' hotel is for the same place that we stayed!

We booked for two nights in March whilst on a road trip from Canmore to Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and then Edmonton. We ended up leaving after just one night and moving on to Edmonton a night early.

The hotel is a dated, tacky venue, which (in my opinion)' is in need of much improvement if it is to live up to it's self declared 'luxury' status. It genuinely felt like stepping back in time to the 70s in terms of the décor -I have never seen so much wood paneling! Perhaps this appeals to some people, but it certainly didn't work for us.

We checked in and were greeted by the hotel's one saving grace - it's very polite and genuine team of staff. After that, the experience went down hill from there.

The set up of the hotel is bizarre, with the majority (if not all?) rooms looking over the central public area which houses the bar, restaurant and swimming pool. Considering the location is in the Rockies, we couldn't figure out why you wouldn't have windows to view the beautiful scenery?! The room windows are wire enforced which instantly reminded me of a prison, and despite the room being a good size, the décor was again tired. The air conditioning unit was old and incredibly noisy and made trying to sleep with it on impossible. Couple this with a leaky tap which would not turn off and you have yourself an awful night's sleep.

In terms of facilities, the hotel pool was full of children which meant you could not relax poolside. The 'gym' (one bike, running machine and a stepper) is effectively housed at the side of the pool in a small, non-airconned 'shed'.

We dined on the evening of our stay at the bar/restaurant at the front of the hotel and were sorely disappointed with the quality of the meals and the cost.

In who, don't go here. It is over priced and low quality. Take the hit and go to the Fairmont instead!

Dear SCE,

We wish to thank you for taking the time to post your comments regarding your recent stay with us. It is through such comments that we are able to better our product, and provide a positive guest experience. The hotel features 153 guest rooms, 49 of which do look to the indoor atrium, and 104 face out to the exterior, with private balconies. Indeed, the lobby & indoor atrium feature a wood (solid knotty pine and red cedar, none of which is paneling) and stone interior.

We apologize for the discomfort brought on by the leaky tap and noisy air unit in your room. We have endeavoured our maintenance department to promptly rectify these issues. We have also informed our food and beverage director of your disappointing dining experience.

March does bring in the annual school breaks through Alberta, a period of time that is cherished by Canadian families. We are a favourite destination of Canadian families who want to enjoy some quality time together in the Rockies.

The Sawridge Inn Jasper will soon begin a three year in depth renovations program to all guest rooms. I am positive this will address many of the concerns you have pointed out. We thank you for recognizing the attentive service provided by our team.

Check in and check out very efficient and freindly. Room very clean, spacious and comfortable.
Chris Woo, Rooms Division Manager, "went the extra mile" to make our stay special and very enjoyable. Breakfast is excellent and the dinner at the Walters restaurant was first class. Would highly recommend this hotel as the best in Jasper.

We sgtayed at the Sawridge for three nights over Valentine/Family day week-end. Nice, large comfy beds with balcony with great mountain view. When we arrived the TV was not working properly. We informed the front desk and went for walk and when we returned everything worked just fine. Friendly staff and despite plenty of families there for the long week-end, the rooms were quite and we heard no outside noise. Would go back in a heart beat!

Room Tip: We prefered the balcony rooms as we like a window that opens.
