I never thought the word, 'vacancy', could be the best word in the English language until we were turned back on the road to Banff where we had a room. The wildfires were dangerously close to the road, so it was closed. Many people were stuck without a room on the road between Saskatchewan Crossing and Jasper and there were NO rooms available in Jasper by the time we got there. We were fortunate to drive up to the Tonquin shortly after someone on the OTHER side of the road closing had called to cancel and saw the sign saying 'VACANCY'. So, my opinion may be somewhat swayed by our circumstances. It was clean, safe, and very comfortable. I have to agree the AC unit was very loud, but it beat sleeping in the car. I would recommend the Tonquin and would not hesitate staying there again...even if it wasn't in an emergency situation. Oh yes, Nick's, the restaurant next door had a great buffet breakfast!! Vouchers were available for $12 from the front desk at this hotel.
