Jasper Hotels, Cabins & Lodges: Which One is your Base of Adventure?

Vacations are always an exciting prospect, but the research and planning can sometimes be a challenge. If you’re embarking on a journey to Jasper in the near future, you’ve probably noticed the endless options for Jasper hotels, lodges, and cabins. All of these Jasper accommodation options offer a little something different for every explorer, and choosing the right one can be tricky. But no fear: we’re here to help with a list of Jasper hotel suggestions based on your travel style. Read on to choose your best base of adventure:

You like your accommodation rustic…with a side of remote

You think time in Jasper is best spent immersed in all this National Park has to offer: starry skies, truly wild wildlife, and oversize glaciers for a start. You care more about connecting with nature than your social networks. Our suggestions:

Pine Bungalows 
Glacier View Inn
Overlander Lodge

You want a cabin-like experience…without going off the map

You like the idea of roughing it, but don’t want to get lost in the woods either. You want something with easy access to Jasper’s town centre that still reminds you of summer camp (without the curfew). Our suggestions:

Bear Hill Lodge
Pyramid Lake Resort

You’re ok with basic comforts…and low prices don’t hurt either

Double-vanilla-extra hot-no foam latte? Those aren’t for you. You appreciate the simpler things, with the added bonus of comfort and convenience. Cozy rooms? Check. In town? Check. Great price? Check. You’re sold. Our suggestions:

Park Place Inn 
Marmot Lodge
Mount Robson Inn

You go off the beaten path…and have the quirky stories to prove it

You pride yourself on finding unique spots that other travellers might miss. You want to meet Jasper locals, seek out strange attractions, and stay in a hotel with history and character to boot. Our suggestions:

Whistler’s Inn
Athabasca Hotel
Astoria Hotel

You’re ready for epic adventures…in the kiddie pool or jungle gym

You think vacationing with the kids is the bee’s knees. You know that they won’t limit your Jasper excursions, but still, the more options the better. On-site dining, games, and a family-friendly atmosphere are a big win in your books. Our suggestions:

Lobstick Lodge
Sunwapta Falls Rocky Mountain Lodge
Patricia Lake Bungalows
Best Western Jasper Inn & Suites 
Pocahontas Cabins

Amenities are your jam…and jam is a must at the breakfast buffet

You want to get the most out of your Jasper vacation – and that includes your hotel. You may be out all day on a horseback trip or guided day hike, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look forward to getting back and enjoying a nice sauna session or delicious meal. You’ll have all the things, please. Our suggestions:

The Crimson
Maligne Lodge
Chateau Jasper
Tonquin Inn

You can appreciate wilderness…from the spa window

You have an appreciation for the finer things in life, and that extends to your Jasper vacation. You may be in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice luxury. You’re looking for a way to reward yourself after a long bike ride or paddle – massage treatments? Eucalyptus steam room? Obviously. Our suggestions:

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
Sawridge Inn & Conference Centre

You’ll stay in a cabin…but only if you’ve built it yourself 

Your idea of a relaxing Jasper vacation involves trekking through the backcountry, sitting around a campfire, and/or stringing up your food on bear poles for safety. Our suggestion: take your pick of one of the many Parks Canada campgrounds in Jasper National Park, and be sure to book early.
