“Comfortable, but the kitchen was small”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

My family and I stayed in 4-person Becker's Chalet cabin for 3 nights while we were touring the Jasper National Park area. With hindsight, we should have gone for a larger cabin than the one we got in the end. Our teenagers shared the loft space upstairs while my wife and I had the bedroom downstairs. The lounge area was compact, with a small kitchen area along one side. We like to cook our own meals and this kitchen space was too small, with barely enough plates and cookware.

Still, the location is great, right alongside the Athabasca River. And if you want to go into town it's just 5 minutes' drive away. I would stay here again, but next time I would book ahead of time and make sure we get a big enough chalet.

Third time at Becker's. Quiet, enjoyable, first-class!!! Our group has always occupied 3 of the chalets, and they excellent. We had the breakfast buffet, and it was pretty darn good... with a good selection of foods and good prices.

Room Tip: Grab a cabin if you can.

Stayed in a fourplex cabin in the back with our toddler and loved so many things about it:
*You can make your own meals with a full-sized fridge, stove, and you can rent a grill for only 5 dollars.

*Plenty of chairs, picnic tables and grass to enjoy a picnic, watch elk or relax to the sound of the water and gorgeous views.

*Quiet!! I forgot to pack my son's white noise machine, but the walls are well-insulated and we were tucked up against forest, it wasn't needed.

What I didn't love so much:
*The restaurant on-site: it lacked fresh,quality food and good service. The "host" took a good 10 minutes trying to decide if he could "fit us in" in a nearly empty restaurant. When we told him we could eat in town instead, he decided he could seat us, if we were quick since he said he had a lot of reservations coming in. (Se noticed that 10 tables sat empty the entire time we were there for dinner and even when we left. Definitely avoid the $14 continental breakfast! Not many choices and pretty tasteless. We opted to make our own after our first breakfast there.

All in all, a great place to stay! If we are ever in Jasper again, we will eat elsewhere but stay here!

Fabulous location. Views over the river and of the mountains.
Chalet was very well appointed.
Very spacious.
Lovely gas fire.
Very clean.
The site seems very well managed and clean.
Price a bit on the high side for two people.
WiFi quite poor.
We only stayed one night. If we come back to Jasper we will probably look for somewhere else to stay.

We stayed in a 2 bedroomed chalet near the entrance whilst visiting family and what a beautiful setting. The river is gorgeous and the view of the snow capped mountains, uninterrupted (for us at least). There are chairs on the lawn for afternoon enjoyment of the view, and a restaurant and shop (vending machines, ice and ice buckets) for convenience. It's just outside Jasper but you would need to drive in.The chalet is cosy. We had to rearrange the chairs each night to open the doors to the rooms, but the chairs are on wheels, so it wasn't difficult. The kitchen could do with more surfaces for food preparation, dishing up etc. The chalet was very (too) warm at night and there weren't any fans available for the first night. I think it would be better if each chalet had 1 fan per bedroom, and it would also be useful if there was a plug in the bedroom(s). The wifi (Free..) wasn't very good, we could get on, but you couldn't browse anything. We would stay here again.

We booked two units at the Chalets: one double room with kitchen, and one 2-bedroom cabin. The double room was OK, not renovated but overall nice. The 2-bedroom cabin was very old, with spider webs in the corners and a shower my husband could barely fit into, it was so small. The bedrooms had no doors, just curtains that eliminated any chance of privacy. But the worst thing was that it smelled like ELK POOP. When we complained, they sent someone with a refreshener, but it took about 5-6 HOURS for the smell to become bearable. The nerve they had to let people book the cabin like that is overwhelming.

The place itself looks very nice, by the riverside, with nice public areas and a good dining room (we had breakfast there). I'm sure that if I had booked the double room alove, it wouldn't have been that bad. So go for the renovated rooms and do not get the two-bedroom cabin.

Room Tip: Go for renovated cabins

We have stayed here a number of times over the years but I guess as we get older we have higher expectations. It has an ideal location on the Athabasca River – especially the wooden cottages by the river. They are very cosy with reasonably appointed kitchens. The only problem are the old, tiny bathrooms. I can’t remember last time I was in a small tin-sided shower with no indication of which tap was hot or cold. My knees touched the wall when seated on the toilet. One would expect that by now, a more modern bathroom would be in place, especially for the price being paid – apparently the newer condo-like units away from the river are better. There is WiFi in the cabins but it is very slow and frustrating for anything but email.

The dining room is pleasant with a view of the river from a few of the tables. The service was very good as was the food though the tenderloin came medium+ when rare was ordered. Complimentary dessert was provided in lieu of preparing another steak which was offered.

There is no air conditioning but with windows on three sides there should be some cross draft. It has nice heat, including a gas fireplace, which we used since it was a cool and rainy 12 degrees the day we were there.

It is not in town so be prepared to get back on the highway if going to eat in Jasper itself.

Room Tip: If WiFi is important ask which rooms have a stronger signal.
