I stopped there for two days and found the location to be great for visting Jasper National Park and the Fishing areas around Hinton. Lots of shops and restaurants within easy walk or two minute drive. Reasonably priced and certainly more affordable than the accommodation costs in Jasper. I had a room in the back at ground level and this had a grassed area view with trees in the background. No noise problems. The room had a small Fridge and a Microwave Oven both of which I found usefull. Spare pillows made watching T.V. comfortable. Bedroom and bathroom/toilet were clean and well attired. Clothe hanging space was somewhat small but adequate drawers were provided. Reception Staff were polite and helpfull. The Continental Breakfast was quite adequate and had nicely laid out facilities. Security left a lot to be desired as the ground floor Exit Door (west end) was left unlocked day and night. On the second night of my stay the Parking Lot at the front of the building was quite full and I therefore chose to leave my vehicle in the S/W lot at the rear of the building which at that time was fully illuminated. I later found out that these lights were switched off in the early hours. As well, the security cameras were not working in this area. It would appear that some local Felons knew about these security weaknesses also. Enough said! Overall, the hotel would have earnt a better rating but I have to give it a failing grade due to my own personal losses.
