My daughter lost her stuffy dog Koko in the room. We called back a few days later, and the hotel staff found him. After making arrangements for delivery, Koko is home now!

Older hotel, as all are in jasper, could use some updating in wallpaper (starting to peel). But, most concerning was advertised as having a restaurant and lounge. Apparently, they closed them due to slow season. Never mentioned that in reservation. They have a breakfast buffet for 13.99. And a Starbucks counter that closes at 2:00pm. There are a… Read more

Apparently, they closed them due to slow season. Never mentioned that in reservation. They have a breakfast buffet for 13.99. And a Starbucks counter that closes at 2:00pm. There are a few close by restaurants, but, we would have liked to have known that they no longer supported one. Pool and hot tub was sufficient and quite clean . Parking lot was not cleared out lately and was very icy . We had a kitchen with a separate bedroom which was very roomy and sufficient. Read less

The room was comfortable & clean. With the exception of 1 person, the employees were friendly & helpful. The man at the reception desk was curt and worse than unhelpful. We asked how to get to the planetarium and he told us we would have to take a bus. He said it was a short walk from the hotel. We looked at a map and it didn't look good to… Read more
The room was comfortable & clean. With the exception of 1 person, the employees were friendly & helpful. The man at the reception desk was curt and worse than unhelpful. We asked how to get to the planetarium and he told us we would have to take a bus. He said it was a short walk from the hotel. We looked at a map and it didn't look good to us. (We are all in our 70s). We called a taxi & were shocked when we saw the walk he had told us to take. There was no sidewalk & we would have had to walk on a slushy, icy road a number of blocks, turn down a busy street for another long block to the bus stop. It would have been exhausting and dangerous. It is unbelievable that we were told by a hotel employee to go that way. Read less

We stayed at the Lobstick over the Christmas break 2019 for a two night family ski trip. Overall we gave it 4 out of 5. Not the Ritz but quite serviceable for our needs. Price was $ 130 plus taxes which is OK, not a bargain but this is high season Location is a little far from the main part of downtown, about a 20 minute walk (1.5 km). Check-In… Read more
We stayed at the Lobstick over the Christmas break 2019 for a two night family ski trip. Overall we gave it 4 out of 5. Not the Ritz but quite serviceable for our needs. Price was $ 130 plus taxes which is OK, not a bargain but this is high season Location is a little far from the main part of downtown, about a 20 minute walk (1.5 km). Check-In took quite a while (20 minutes). They were slam dunked: maximum staff (two) on duty but were hampered by number of work stations. Service was great. No problem with leaving our bags at the hotel while we skied our last day. The lady in the breakfast buffet remembered my preference for decaf' coffee after only one morning! Halls / public spaces in the building are in good shape, no "stale hotel" smell. Our room #148 was more than adequate size for its two Queen beds. All services worked although like most hotels, there are nowhere near enough plugs in the walls. Carpet, paint etc looked like it had received some love. The bed was good, about normal for a good hotel. Bathroom was very good. Obviously a complete renovation, and recently done. No dust bunnies noted. Noise wasn't the concern for us it was for other reviewers. Especially considering the very full state of the hotel. There is no big loud rockin' bar. Internet (Shaw Open) worked quite well. Coffee maker thankfully was stocked with decaf'. Fridge was quiet. Breakfast was really good. They have two buffet options, $14 for "cold" and $17.25 "hot". "Cold" is good with nice fresh porridge in addition to the usual dry cereals; however little protein (yoghurt but no cold meats, hard boiled eggs etc) One issue was the hot tubs in the pool area. There are two, one in and one outside, small and probably adequate sized 99% of the time, but too full to get in our first night. Also the aerated jets in the indoor pool were kaput. Really could have used that extra massage effect after a day skiing! Room tips: Note that floor #1 at the Lobstick is actually a half basement. Rooms in the hall with the rooms numbered in the 100-teens are noisier: that is the main route to the pool. Read less
