First impressions were not favourable but it worked out quite well. It is only a few metres back from the main highway but my room turned out not to be that loud. The beds were fine and I slept well. The bug screen in the window was a necessity. The hot/cold in the shower was also regulated directly. Breakfast was... More

The place is good to stopover on the way from Jasper to Vancouver, vice versa. The room is a little dated and but still quite good for a 2-star. We found 2 big bugs in the room as we were trying to open the window. We had a late dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food was good and we... More

We had doubts about this hotel as we just booked it as a place to stop on the way to Jasper for one night as it was one of very few pet friendly places in Clearwater. It was quite cheap and didn't look anything special in photos. We were pleasantly surprised just how clean and comfortable the rooms were. Sure,... More

Driving from the island every year, I start to get exhausted near Clearwater enroute to Alberta. I have always found a room at this inn. It is easily accessibly (right off the highway), available, clean, affordable, free wifi, and no hassles. There is a dining area attached and a little liquor store. Perfect for an overnight stay.

As others say it is rather dated but the staff a very good especially the restaurant team, good value for money. Food in restaurant good and catered for gluten free people. The location is perfect to visit the waterfalls and the visitor centre is worth a visit.

Yes the looks are a bit outdated, yes the rooms can be a bit noisy, but I like those looks and the beds were good quality, size of the rooms was great (bathroom is a bit small), all was very clean, the shower was good, service was very friendly and prices were very good. Location is perfect being close to... More

We spent one night here on the way to Jasper NP and to visit Wells Gray Provincial Park. Check in was very easy and and quick. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. It had a little patio area outside that was nice. If in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stopped here for an unplanned stay and the lady at reception was very helpful in finding us a room for the night that would accommodate someone with mobility problems. We had a room with a patio on the parking area and hotel staff and even the gardener helped with our bags.
