“Long way from Jasper”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I didn't book this accommodation - it was booked by a couple we were travelling with. I have to admit I wasn't comfortable with this place and it wouldn't have been an accommodation I would have booked for the reasons I explain below.

In the first place it is a long way from Jasper - 20-25 mins drive, with no services anywhere nearby. So you are pretty much a captive of the hotel (a situation I dislike because of the potential for exploitation). Because of this we had no option but to eat in the lodge and while the meal was pleasant enough (I had chicken breast) it was also at a price well above what you would pay for a similar meal in Jasper (although I have to admit the white tablecloths and fine cutlery did add a certain style that Jasper may not provide). The drinks were expensive - the same price for a small bottle of beer for which you would receive a pint of draft beer in Jasper. And ridiculous wine prices- expect to pay C$40 plus. ( We have bought good quality quaffing Canadian wines for $10 to $13 during our travels and they just don't seem to be offered at restaurants, which is a pity because even with a 150% markup they would still be well below C$40 and offer an opportunity for us less wealthy travelers to drink wine with our meal).

While the location of the lodge was in the 'wild' it was only a 100 metres or so from the highway and muted traffic noise could be heard from the room, which let you know you weren't out in the wilderness. As for the room, our room was part of a square block that contained 4 rooms, one on each corner. The 2 at the front (which included ours) had no view (except of the carpark) while the 2 rooms at the back had mountain views. Whilst other reviewers have raved about these views I thought they were okay, but far from spectacular.

The room itself was average - nothing to highlight but also nothing to complain about. There was no TV and no internet. However complimentary internet was available in the reception area.

For what we received I thought the room cost was excessive.

This lodge may appeal to some people and provide a nights respite for people travelling to Jasper from the east, or for more nights if they want to stay in the immediate area. However I would not recommend it as a place as an alternative to staying in Jasper if the intention is to do sightseeing around Jasper, because the Lodge is simply too far away.

We had our first visit to Overlander this Fathers Day weekend, a nice getaway, we had hoped. On the phone when I reserved, I thought I was getting a cabin...when we checked in, we were disappointed to see that what we had was like a motel room...8 rooms in one building...so that was a let-down. Disappointment #1. The room itself was very nice, clean, spacious. The bed and pillows were very comfortable!!! There was a fireplace in the room, but we were not told how to operate it, nor was there any info in the room on how to...Disappointment #2. We had no view from our room to make up for it, either. Disappointment #3 There needs to be better sound-proofing in this building - we could definitely hear other guests.
For the price we paid, and the distance we had to travel to go to any activities, I doubt we will stay there again.

Room Tip: Because there is such a variety of rooms to choose from, BE SURE you know what you are getting i.e...

We had our wedding at the Overlander Lodge a week ago and our experience with them could not have been better. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and more than helpful. They were very organized ensuring that the entire weekend ran smoothly and no detail was forgotten. The property is beautiful, very well maintained and the views are spectacular. The food was excellent! We had guests commenting all night on how much they enjoyed the meal. The chef was even able to customize our menu to include options that weren't listed in their wedding planning brochures. The Overander has the option of booking your event as a private function and it is well worth the money. It was so nice to have the whole place to ourselves and our guests for the night. We highly recommend the Overander Mountain Lodge to anyone looking for a venue in the mountains for a wedding or any other group function or to anyone looking for a quiet place to spend a weekend away.

We were in the Rockie Mountains for our honeymoon and stayed 3 nights at Overlander. The place is very clean and confortable. The staff is incredible friendly and helpfull, specially Tim, the manager, who gave us awsome tips of things to do around. We hope to come back next year.

The view was fantastic and there's a lot of hiking trails near by. My only complaint is that our room had no phone to call the front desk and the walls were not sound proof at all. We couldn't get any sleep because of the 'night activities' going on with the couple staying in the room next to us..

Other than that it was great! Restaurant was extremely over priced but normally most things are in Jasper.

The hotel was extremely quiet for our early season visit. The views from the balcony to our room and from the restaurant simply took our breathe away. The staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were satisfied with everything at the Overlander, would recommend it and use it again if we should come this way. We actually liked the fact that it was a little way out of Jasper and the location suited us completely.

Room Tip: Choose a mountain view. There may be a bit of traffic noise from the highway below but the view make...

A little rustic, but intimate and classy at the same time. We stayed on a little 4 plex cabin, small, but cozy. Great views, and surrounding areas. The restaurant was amazing, a little pricey, but worth it. Breakfast was also affordable and delicious. Staff was accommodating and pleasant.
