Not quite sure how to rate this place. Compared to what? There is really nothing else in this area of the beautiful Icefields Parkway. Yes, the internet is not great, and no, they do not have flat screen TV's. Yes, it is expensive. No, there is no nightlife. The cabin we stayed in was clean and functional. The young seasonal staff was knowledgable about the area and always helpful. The restaurant is above average, considering its monopoly status. Every time I visit the Canadian Rockies, I am floored by the prices. Dolllar for dollar, it may be the most expensive place I've ever been....and I have traveled the world. You just have to get over it and realize that most of these Parkway facilities have to pay for their entire existence over a 5 (maybe) 6 month period.
So, this all leaves me giving the place a 4. What's to complain about?
