Editor's Analysis
Updated on Mar 5, 2012
Overview
The Marmot Lodge is located on the west side of Connaught Drive in Jasper, Alberta inside of Jasper National Park. It is one the first properties that a motorist will see when entering the town of Jasper from the north. 

The Marmot Basin ski hill is approximately 22.7km from the Marmot Lodge while the Yellowhead Trail is just minutes away (Google Maps).

The property is owned by the Mountain Park Lodges, a company that owns a few other hotels in Jasper including the Amethyst Lodge, the Lobstick Lodge, and the Chateau Jasper.

The pet friendly hotel features an on-site restaurant, a lounge, an indoor heated pool, a sauna, free parking, and coin laundry. There are 107 guest rooms at the property and each has an exterior entrance (ie. motel style instead of hotel style). 

Room amenities include refrigerators, cable television, and wireless high speed Internet. Air conditioning, kitchens, and gas fireplaces are available in some rooms however not all rooms have these amenities.

Check in time at this property is at 4pm while check out time is at 11am.
The Good
Numerous guests who stayed at the Marmot Lodge in Jasper, Alberta seemed to be happy with the property. Guests frequently paid compliments to the rooms at the hotel and to the staff.

The guests who were happy with their rooms typically described them as clean, well kept, and comfortable. Multiple guests also said that they thought their rooms were large.

The guests who expressed their approval of the staff at the hotel usually described them as friendly or helpful. However multiple guests paid the staff much heavier compliments. Some guests said the staff were "great" or that they provided "exceptional" customer service.

There were other compliments for the Marmot Lodge that were more peripheral but that still had multiple adherents. Some guests seemed happy with the hotel's restaurant while other guests said they found the property to be quiet. Perhaps related to the quietness, some guests said they liked that the property was located a little ways from Jasper's shopping area.

The Bad
Guests who disliked the hotel were not numerous however there were a couple areas that received some attention from concerned patrons. 

While guests generally liked their rooms, some guests specifically said that their beds or pillows were uncomfortable. On one occasion, a guest said that he/she found his/her bed to be "hard."

There were also some problems with the Internet at the hotel. Occasionally a guest complained that the Marmot Lodge's signal was inadequate. One guest said that it was weak while another guest said that they were not able to work with it at all.

A couple guests also seemed moderately inconvenienced about having to walk outside in order to access the property's indoor pool.

Patricia from Grande Cache, AB CA rated Marmot Lodge 8 out of 10 on October 12, 2009 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"My room was quite pretty and nestled in the trees as we looked out the window. Construction was behind us but no one was working on this Thanksgiving day. The bathroom was larger than their competitor next door as our friends had booked there. Other than the bathtub containing long black hair and the bathroom floor was not as clean as it should have been, we had a great stay! The hot tub was great but two sides of it wasn't working right. We did not use the pool. We will stay there again but I'll check the the room first. There was no compensation for the shabby housekeeping. It's good customer service to compensate. The staff was excellent and very polite."

"Jasper is a true gem and I plan to come back and stay for a while. Why would anyone want to go to Europe when you can find a place like Jasper! The people are wonderful and open up their heart to you like the mountains do that surround the wonderful city!"

"I'd recommend that future guests request a room away from the main road as there is some truck noise overnight and noise from the continuously running freight trains the other side of the road. Light sleepers beware!"

"The room was very comfortable, however, I dropped something on the floor that rolled under the bed and I have to say that the floors need attention under the beds. Also the headboards and lamps between the beds needed dusting. Otherwise the room was clean and I would stay there again."
