Editor's Analysis
Updated on Apr 28, 2014
Overview
The Lobstick Lodge is located on the west side of Geikie Street near the Juniper Street intersection in Jasper, Alberta. Situated on the north side of town, the hotel is one block west of Connaught Drive, Jasper's main roadway. The hotel is about 1.2km away from the VIA Rail station while Marmot Basin is about 22km from the property (distances - Google Maps).

The hotel is owned by the Mountain Park Lodges, a small hotel chain that also owns the Amethyst Lodge, the Marmot Lodge, the Chateau Jasper, and the Pocahontas Cabins. Guests that stay at one of these hotels may use the facilities at the other properties as well.

Facilities at the three-storey Lobstick Lodge include an elevator, an indoor pool, a sauna, a fitness centre, four hot tubs, coin laundry, a restaurant (breakfast extra), free on-site parking, and a lounge.

There are 139 rooms at the lodge with 43 kitchen suites and common amenities include free high speed Internet, cable televisions, two queen beds, complimentary in-room coffee and tea, direct dial telephones, mini-fridges, irons/ironing boards, and hairdryers.

Kitchenettes at the property typically feature a separate bedroom with two double beds, two cable televisions a sofa bed, and a full service kitchen.

Check in time at this property starts at 4pm and check out time ends at 11am.
The Good
Guests who stayed at the Lobstick Lodge were generally happy with the hotel and the property received regular compliments. Usually guests that enjoyed their stay mentioned their rooms or suites, the hotel's facilities, and/or the location of the property.

Guests that thought highly of their rooms often described them as large or spacious. The hotel had a fair number of kitchenette suites and guests that stayed in these rooms often indicated that they liked being able to cook to save money on dining expenses.

The hotel was also well liked for its facilities in the common areas. Many guests mentioned that they used the pool or one of the the many hot tubs. Also some guests appreciated that there was dining on-site, including a restaurant and a lounge.

Guests that liked the location sometimes mentioned that the hotel was situated in a quieter area of Jasper as it was off the main drive and few blocks from the central area. Despite the quieter area, some guests mentioned that the property  was walking distance to the central part of Jasper.

The Bad
Some guests did not enjoy their stay at the Lobstick Lodge and there were a few areas that received some complaints from multiple guests.

For example, some guests were not happy with the temperature of their rooms. There were multiple complaints about them being too hot and occasional complaints about them being too cold. Perhaps related to this, there were also some complaints from guests who thought that their room heater was broken.

The hotel seemed to have a fair bit of noise concerns, not due to its setting but due to other guests. Occasionally guests indicated that the staff at the hotel were unable to put an end to the noise.

Despite the fact that some guests enjoyed using the hot tubs at the hotel, many guests complained that they were not all in service during their stays. 

The staff at the hotel did not receive the best reviews and opinions on them were mixed. Multiple guests said that they were either not helpful or that they were unwelcoming.

Occasionally a guest complained about the location of the hotel as some would have liked to have been closer to the main shopping area in Jasper, especially in the cold winter months.

Kirstie from Burnaby, BC CA rated Lobstick Lodge 8 out of 10 on October 25, 2012 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"comfy beds, expensive food"
"The beds were great, the room was clean and comfortable. There are 3 food sources on-site: a lounge, a restaurant, and a cafe. The cafe seems to be open only at peak periods (ski season, mid-summer), the restaurant and lounge are not both open at once at shoulder season, either, so it's Hobson's choice if you want to eat on-site. Food was a bit pricey but decent. The pool is tiny and a bit on the chilly side - don't expect to be able to do lengths, it's about 4 metres on a side. Adequate for splashing with the kids if you don't mind the temp."

"Good Deal, would stay there again"
"Great deal for a ski weekend. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. I had one of the rooms that did not have a thermostat and the room was very hot and they could not control the heat so had to sleep with the windows open. We had the breakfast buffet and the food was just 'ok'."

"The short walk to the main shopping area is beautiful with mountains framing the background, and needed after filling up on supper on that strip. The entire staff were friendly and helpful and everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff made sure to smile and say 'Hi' to both my wife and I. The hotel itself was clean and just felt comfortable from the moment we walked into the lobby until we checked out. We would stay there again."

"The biggest problem we had was the pull out couch in the living room was very uncomfortable. It was in very poor condition and did not offer any kind of comfortable sleep. It needs to be replaced. We have stayed here before and there is no doubt, they all need to be replaced. They are too old and decrepit."

David from Bay City, MI US rated Lobstick Lodge 3 out of 10 on September 03, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Stayed in a first floor room with a room number in the 130s. The dining room was directly above the room which made it noisier. Usually heard chairs moving/dragging on the floor until the restaurant closed at 11 PM. Also noisy again early when the restaurant opened for breakfast. Don't try to sleep in in a room in this hotel area. Also, rooms in this lower level area surrounded by housekeeping staff supply rooms. The housekeeping staff are up and at it it seemed by 7 AM making all kind of noise. Didn't seem to worry about all of the guest rooms near by. Tried to avoid but no other rooms available. Will look elsewhere next time to Jasper."

Werner from Chemnitz, DE rated Lobstick Lodge 4 out of 10 on August 19, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Many rooms (like mine) are in the basement of the building. Between several rooms there are doors (usually locked) through which almost everything can be heard from the next room. Taking such things into account, the room was much too expensive."

"I enjoyed the atmosphere at the hotel and felt safe with my family of 4 staying there. I thought the location was convenient and easily accessable to most attractions without the traffic of the downtown area. The restaurant could have been more 'Family Friendly' and would suggest eating somewhere off site if you have a larger family."

Peter from Kettering, GB rated Lobstick Lodge 4 out of 10 on August 14, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"We had to change rooms due to poor plumbing in hotel creating a lot of noise at night, first room was on the ground floor where noise was terible - all family got woken at several times during night. Second room was better on top floor but still could hear the toliets flushing and water rushing through the pipes. A shame, since hotel was nice apart from this."

"Your front desk staff was fine. Your hotel seemed to be overbooked. When we needed extra towels, they were not available. The room was hot, and to cool it down we had to open the windows and allow bright courtyard lights in with the cool air. The biggest problem came with the pre-arranged payments. Ultimately they were honored, but multiple members of your staff suggested they might not be honored, and we might have to consider alternate forms of payment. On this issue, they were rude."

Robin from Rockingham Wa, AU rated Lobstick Lodge 5 out of 10 on July 02, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"My over-riding impression was that everything inside was dark and dismal. Some brighter lights in the room would have made some difference. Perhaps cleaning out the filter on the air conditioner would have made it cool the room some."

"Swimming pool is too small for the volume of users. Need to add sitting area for adults to supervise their children while in the tiny pool. Outdoor hot tubs are a nice touch, but again, not enough for the number of users."
