"For Jasper, find another place"

"For the Jasper experience, go someplace else. With inside facing rooms (looking over diners eating), the hotel design is just wrong. Maybe the design works in the dead of winter, but we couldn't wait to leave. Indoor pool and jacuzzi filled the nice dining area with a chloreen smell. Downstairs bar was a cave. But the hotel was clean."

5 out of 10 | Dale stayed April 29, 2006

"The Bed's Are much too hard. 2 of the 3 of us staying in the room made the comment within the first minute we were in the room. We stayed at the Jasper Inn the second night and the beds there were superb! I wont stay at the Sawridge again just because of the beds. Everthing else was average, nothing special that would set them apart from any other hotel."
