Trust us, you’ll want to get an early start when you’re exploring this massive national park on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies. The sunrise lights up each of its peaks—several of them towering over 10,000 feet—one by one. Just getting there is a blast, as Icefields Parkway takes you through forests of lodgepole pines. Once you arrive, lace up your hiking boots (or strap on your snowshoes) for an above-the-tree-line trek through the Bald Hills. A wintertime ice walk to Maligne Canyon takes you past frozen waterfalls. There’s zero light pollution here, so stay up late to see billions of stars and sometimes even the aurora borealis.

This inn is situated in a good location, close to town. It also has a nice view facing grandeur mountain. People at the dining hall are friendly and accommodating. It's just kind of pricey because we went there during Spring time when everything is all booked up.

Nestled deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Tekarra Lodge enjoys an enviable location within Jasper National Park, the largest of the national mountain parks in Canada, 4200 square miles in area. Jasper became a National Park in 1907 and the town site's first buildings were constructed in 1911, then Jasper was known as the town of Fitzhugh. Tekarra Lodge is located across the river from the base of its namesake, Tekarra Mountain. Tekarra Mountain, towering 2635 meters above us is named for the Iroquois guide and hunter who accompanied Sir James Hector on his expedition through the Rocky Mountains during the mid-1850s. The skill and devotion of the guide Tekarra saved the lives of the members of that expedition. He sustained and fed them during the grim and bitter winter with caribou that he hunted on the mountain. It was because of this devotion that Sir James named the mountain Tekarra. The lodge grounds form the banks of the confluence of the Athabasca and Miette rivers. This land is maintained in its natural state, and offers a wonderful study for nature lovers. Tekarra's marked nature walk, and the Indian totem poles give pleasure to all ages. The area and history in and around the property is a fascinating one. One of the first settlements of Jasper called Henry House may have been located adjacent to the lodge on the south side of the river. Even today, there is still indication of an old homestead and some outbuildings. Tekarra Lodge was built circa 1947 and initially consisted of only a few cabins, some of which are standing today.
This was a fab location on the outskirts of Jasper, with wonderful views of the mountains. Watched elk eating the lawns from our cabin! We didn’t have a fire but all we needed was supplied, and staff were very friendly and helpful. I marked it down to a 4 for 2 reasons. Firstly we had the cabin immediately adjacent to reception which meant privacy was an issue - lots of people walking past, cars checking in and out parked right in front of our porch and people hung around to chat which meant having a drink or breakfast on the porch was more communal than I’d have liked - not the tranquil and private experience advertised. Secondly it was a cabin for 2 people but had a table for 4, and comfy seating for 3. This made it very cramped and the bed was up against the wall which wasn’t ideal. Furnishing needs a little more thought. Overall a nice place to stay tho.

Hospitality, comfort and four-season recreation for gatherings of all kinds in the rugged beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Jasper Inn & Suites is your perfect choice among Jasper hotels because of its warm hospitality, a variety of accommodations including pet-friendly rooms and tasteful amenities. We are known as one of the most welcoming hotels in Jasper, AB with friendly, knowledgeable staff, on-site dining, and free hotel parking. We look forward to hosting you at The Jasper Inn & Suites in the stunning mountain town of Jasper, Alberta.
I would not call this a “hotel”, the facilities and quality is more that of a motel. Good points first - Our room was spacious, location is fine (about 10-15 minutes to downtown) and convenient parking & wifi. Not so good points - the room gets really hot and uncomfortable as they are not air conditioned. They did provide a rather bulky and dated fan which made more noise than it circulated air. The power of this fan was similar to that of a person blowing air from the mouth. We were told this is the only fan they are able to provide. Of course if you do keep the window open, you will be letting in multiple kinds of mosquitoes, flies and insects which are abundant in Jasper. They also do not provide a shower gel or body wash which is quite common as an amenity even by lower rated hotels. The room was noisy as well and we did not have a comfortable night’s sleep due to these reasons. The prices charged do not reflect the level/quality of their rooms or facilities and certainly not that of a 3 star hotel. I would not want to stay here again.

Part of our Rocky Mountaineer Tour, the last leg on the bus transfers to pick up the Train the following morning. We unfortunately arrived about 1 hour late from our transfer from Lake Louise & we were the last group to be dropped off in town. The good part was the pub - Whistle Stop on the main floor of the hotel. Busy little establishment with many locals in the crowd but great/great wait staff. Friendly , helpful, patent with a great sense of humour. Ask them for their wine list & their answer was red, white & pink! Food was very good after a long day of bus travel & reasonable prices. It is convenient for any travelers to connect with other travel arrangements. Rooms were a little dated but clean & comfortable. Would have loved to been able to walk the Main street when shops were open but perhaps another time. Staff were polite, courteous during check in & helpful the next morning for our luggage transfers. Enjoyed being the downtown core that was quiet for this period of season & also everything being so convenient. Enjoy the town.

Quietly nestled at the end of Jasper's main street where the mountains meet the town site, Maligne Lodge offers a relaxing haven in which guests can retreat after an adventurous day. Mornings bring the refreshing smell of crisp mountain air and evenings, the chance to relax by a crackling fire. Days, are wide open for guests to enjoy, whether on an action-packed outing on the slopes or a peaceful exploration of the landscape below.
We had a quick friendly check in & the room was clean and rustic. The toiletries were of poor quality & the bathtub has seen better days. We wanted to use the fitness facility but to our dismay learned that they don’t open their gym until 9 am :(. Given Jasper is a community with many outdoor activities, one would think their hotel would’ve been more accommodating to guests who like to be healthy and start their day with a workout.

Although it was about 40 minutes outside Jasper, we were absolutely glad we booked it. The place is just beautiful. We had a room right in main building, with a deck and a mountain view. From the moment we arrived, the staff were fabulous. I give them all 5 stars. The quality of the room furnishings were right on point. Mind you have NO TV or phone, but who needed it when you had the "view". The best was the restaurant. Again a 5 star treat. Absolutely delicious. We came down early for our reservation and sat by the fire, a beautiful room, a bar tender was attentive to our requests and when we did sit for dinner the waiter was amazing. All in all this is a place you will never be disappointed with.

With its cozy sunken living rooms, convenient kitchenettes and "home away from home" charm, the Tonquin Inn is the ideal spot for an escape from the city!
This hotel should be in the category of motel. The room was dirty, the sink was clogged and the bathroom floor had hair from previous clients. Carpets are dirty. The price is too expensive for what we got in return

Lovely location with an amazing view from the front of the hotel (and assuming from the rooms on that side), however we had a fairly small room that sadly looked out into a loading yard. This was pretty noisy when there were trucks there, which was not uncommon. Free parking in the municipal lot across the road, though apparently this might be changing. The linked restaurant and bar were both excellent, we had breakfast in the former and dinner/drinks in the latter one evening (daily happy hours are great!)
