"Only lodging option at glacier"
Hotel is expensive for type of lodging, but you are paying for the convenience of staying at the glacier tour staging area directly across hwy from glacier. Dinner at restaurant was very expensive for Chinese food and our room smelled from greasy kitchen cooking directly below. On the plus side, you are ready to go for first tours in the morning, avoiding […] crowds from tour buses arriving later in the morning. Views are spectacular !

"Excellent location with view of the Glacier."
Location was excellent with view of the Glacier. Hotel lobby was not very noticeable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, spacious room with a great view"
We were pleasantly surprised with how nice our room was - very spacious, clean, comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near the glacier, but not much else."
Nice place considering it's the top level of the glacier visitors' center. The room had a loft with 2 twin beds upstairs and one queen downstairs. Very convenient for visiting the glacier, but a long way from everything else in the park, including the town of Jasper. The restaurant is decent but expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I felt this hotel like 4 star hotel. It was clean and comfortable so much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel not close to Jasper"
The hotel is located in a very lonely area, no population or any other business in 50 km radius. Nothing much to do. Thought the restaurant staff was excellent, they were very friendly and the food was also very good. In short it is good place to stop by have lunch, see the glacier and move on to the Jasper village. The location is very misleading.Genuine Expedia guest review
Awesome locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Glacier View Inn unfortunately, short of a beautiful view, did not meet my expectations. The signage directing people to the hotel was inadequat, both inside the facility as well as outside signage. I spoke with a merchant in Jasper who said he had about a dozen people so far this year asking for direction after passing by the hotel some 100 kilometers […] earlier. The unempathetic staff pointed to the restrictions placed on them by Canada's National Park system for the lack of signs. I however think this is a weak explanation since so many others apparently have driven a great distance out of their way and the cloth sign could be darker and easier to read. Even more confusing is the entrance for the hotel says buses only which does not allow for someone to drive up to find out if it is in deed the location they are looking for. The room was nicely decorated and spacious. It seems like the facility is more geared towards tours of the local glaciers over maintaining a hotel-like atmospher. There was no ironing board in the room and the room lack ventilation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, unmatched view!"
Drive up baggage area would be nice. Staff was very accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location is the key"
Beautiful views of the glacier and very few other options within an hour of the glacier make this property worth considering. However, the price is very high for the quality of the room and amenities offered. The correct parking lot and front desk are extremely difficult to find as they are not well marked.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Glacier View Inn Dear Guest: Thank you for taking the opportunity to review your recent stay at the Glacier View Inn. We are glad that you enjoyed the beautiful view of the glacier from the hotel. Given the extremely remote location of the hotel and the fact that all on-site power is generator produced, we cannot provide a lot of the electrical and technological luxuries of other hotels. The lobby is currently under construction so it is somewhat confusing when entering the building. But rest assured, when the lobby is complete, there will be signage clearly indicating the location of the front desk so guests can find it more easily. We appreciate your insight and look forward to the opportunity of hosting you again on your next drive through Jasper National Park. Sincerely, Alexandra George Hotel Sales Executive Coordinator Brewster Hospitality
ICE center was being renovated, so we didn't see the place at its best. Hotel staff was helpful, but we didn't enjoy our experiences in tbe restaurant. We understood the high prices, but the quality wasn't good and the service was poor.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed here one night as part of a trip to Jasper and Banff National Parks. The room was clean and comfortable. Booked a glacier view room and the view was gorgeous! The restaurant is the only place to eat for miles, and while the food was good it was way overpriced. Recommend staying here but would be sure to bring my own food!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great view, comfortable, clean room."
Of course you can't beat the location, right there at the Columbia Ice Sheet. Great view on the Glacier side, worth the extra few dollars for a room on that side. Friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great view of glaciers"
Enjoyed views. Rooms are spacious with lots of seating.Genuine Expedia guest review
The view is amazing it has an spectacular environment. The only thing bad is the food is so expensive is cheaper to drive 100 km to Jasper than eat at the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay and the Glacier trip. We had read that the food was just so so but found it quite good although a little expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Literally - this IS the glacier view!!"
This is a MUST DO if you are in the Banff or Jasper area. We chose to stay at the inn for more time without the large groups of tourists who visit there daily. We had a grand evening hike up to the foot of the glacier, and the next morning we took an earlier trip up on the glacier before all the buses arrived. We saw two GORGEOUS RAINBOWS from our hotel […] window, and while on the glacier, we experienced a full ice storm!! Staying AT THE HOTEL gives you these opportunities that you would not have if just traveling through. Our hotel room was a corner room with a glacier view - WOW! What a view!!!

"Great hotel with kids"
We were surprised with a loft of two twin beds upstairs. Kids loved it. The room is clean. However, there is no internet available in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel at one of the most romantic locals"
Most desirable location in Jasper NP right across from the Athabasca glacier. Clean, comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Decent restaurant (it's pricey but to no surprise considering the remote location).Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was adequate for comfort, but the most important thing is the location. This is the only hotel in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Glacier View Room"
Had a glacier view room. Got great photos from the window of the glaciers and long horn sheep!! The room was comfortable, quiet and would have been great for a family, it had a loft and queen bed upstairs too!Genuine Expedia guest review
When we booked the room, we did not expect much from Glacier View Inn other than the location. It turned out that the room was very clean and comfy and the hotel and dining room staff were very courteous. The room was big enough to accomodate our family with three children as it has two twin bed upstairs and two full beds downstairs. The only downside […] is there is no wifi service in the hotel, but that was expected for the location. Will definitely come back and stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great room poor check in"
all was well except checkin was unacceptable no reason to have to wait 20 minutes to check in when there was only one person ahead of me. there were 3 other people standing there doing nothing,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and location"
Wonderful hotel experience. Suggest bringing your own food though as the dining center is VERY expensive.....Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very pleasant surprise."
We stayed for one night in May to visit the ice fields. Not a lot of visitors at this time of year. The room was large and very comfortable and the location was excellent. Good hiking close by and the drive to and from the hotel has exceptional views.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inn with a little surprise"
Wasn't really expecting much when booked online, but the room surprised us. It is huge, well-maintained and clean. Not to mention that the view of Athabasca Glacier from our room is magnificent. Although there isn't much to do around the area (besides the Glacier and Skywalk), the overall experience in the Inn is still considered a good stopover, before […] heading to Jasper. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was clean and bed comfortable. Our room was hot which opening the window didn't help. We should have told the front desk to change the room as other guests said their room was fine. Our fault. I found the dining room prices very high. A hamburger was $20 and it was nothing special. A burger at Miette Hotsprings, also in the park, was half the […] price and better. We enjoyed the Glacier Adventure and Skywalk and sign up was right there at the lodge. So easy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a good place to stay if you are arriving later in the day to see the glacier and don't want to get back on the road. The view of the glacier is beautiful. The restaurant has good service, friendly staff, and prices tha you would expect for such a location, ie bit pricey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The surrounding area was absolutely beautiful, however the hotel seems fairly new as there was not Alot to do at the hotel. Found several mouse traps with moldy cheese behind the couch and bed. The staff in the lobby seemed to be in a really bad mood as we checked in. There was no WiFi or any way to get online, no dvd player and about 5 channels on […] the TV, so if you're ONLY there to sleep, it's fine, but for $500 for a 2 night stay, I would expect a bit more from the actual hotel.

We stayed one night at the Glacier View Inn as we had booked a Glacier Ice Walk the following morning (which I can thoroughly recommend). We were unsure about our choice of accommodation from previous reviews but need not have worried. The reason you choose this hotel is not because it is the lap of luxury but for the location - where else in the world […] can you wake up to the view of a glacier. The room is clean, comfortable and had all the amenities expected, apart from a fridge which we could live without for one night. The room is large with an upstairs - perfect for families. There is no wifi but we saw this as a welcome break and relaxed and enjoyed the views. The staff are extremely helpful and made us most welcome. As a guest of the hotel you do not need to drag your bags up the stairs as the hotel parking is located in the coach parking area which is a short walk over a bridge into the reception area (no stairs). The food is expensive and the only option after 6.30 pm is the restaurant. We made sure we ate in the coffee shop prior to it closing at 6.30 pm which is still pricey but cheaper than the restaurant. For breakfast we had bran muffins and fruit with us which did not require refrigeration. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We have just recently stayed in this hotel and it was a truly memorable one. We were a group of 5 adults and a baby and I was very happy that they have a room option to accommodate us all. The staff are very warm and welcoming, making the experience even better! The hotel do not have Wi-Fi, which actually is great because there are so many things to […] see and do here that you should focus on rather than your phone. The place is clean and easily accessible.

"Close to icefields"
Front desk staff was honest that the hotel mngt and owners are not customer service-oriented.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine location, but not guaranteed good view"
Rooms are on the third floor, above the Icefield Center and dining facilities. But half of the rooms will not be facing the icefield but away from it, like the one we got. The room was very large and comfortable. They had several talks by staff members scheduled per week- we got one about the geology of the Rockies from a knowledgeable staff from Brewster […] Tours. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"NICE HOTEL CLOSE TO THE ICE FIELDS"
Room was comfortable and a great place to stay or maybe the only place to stay by the Ice Fields. Next closest is about an hour in either direction. Food at the restaurant is good, but expensive. Over $100 for four simple breakfast meals. Hotel needs to work out some means by which you can unload and load your vehicle adjacent to the hotel rather than […] having to cart your luggage from the parking lot.

"Great room, great location"
Fantastic rooms for families! Being right at the field allows you to be first in line for the first tour of the day and beat the crowds. Great Chinese food... Pricey, but good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Diamond in the rough"
We just stayed here 1 night because we were unable to find anything in Jasper for our group of 11. This is a great hotel located right in front of the Athabasca Glacier. No mobile coverage, no wifi. Total serenity. It is surrounded by nature and beautiful mountains and glaciers. Don't expect 5 star service since staff and resource are limited due to […] its location. We were told to avoid going outside alone at night due to prowling cougars. The only light outside is natural so it was pitch black when we went (overcast and no moon). We enjoyed our short stay.

"Nice hotel, great view!"
The hotel itself is quite nice, the rooms are well appointed and the view (n our room at least) was stunning. However, the lobby (which is separate) is located inside a sometimes insanely busy Columbia Icefields Discovery Centre which makes the check in/out a pain. The lack of WiFi was surprising although they are "working on getting it".Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel itself in a fantastic location. Luggage was a nightmare to bring in as access to hotel rooms was in the hub of the tourist bit. The toilets for piblwere absolutelyGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Glacier View Inn, Jasper, AB"
We arrived about 10:30am and immediately signed up for the Glacier Tour and the Skywalk. The Inn was right across the street from the Athabasca glacier and the view was wonderful. When we checked in about 3:45, they let us into the room 15 minutes early. We found we had been upgraded to a very large room with view windows on the end and side. Room was […] very well appointed with two quite large beds. No refrigerator or microwave, but kettle and coffee maker. Very nice indeed. The buffet was okay. We did not try the dining room Very enjoyable stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing view, average hotel"
Arrived in the evening and it took a while to find the hotel reception since there were no signs from the exterior (bottom floor at the rear of the building). Also we had to park away from the entrance and carry our bags a fair way. The room was split over two levels, with a double bed in the attic and twice singles on the main floor. We had paid extra […] for a glacier view room and I'm glad we did, it was certainly the best part of the hotel. Overall, not a great hotel experience, but since it was the only place to stay right next to the glacier it got our business. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel overlooking the glacier."
The only hotel in Columbia Icefields .. Has only very few rooms hence needs to be booked earlier. Great views of the glacier from the rooms. No wi-fi in the rooms but we didnt miss it at all. Spent a very relaxing evening playing board-games. Very convenient for the bus tours to the icefields as they all operate right frm the hotel. There is only one […] restaurant attached to the inn which is very highly over-priced. No other eateries in the area so we had no other option. Overall a convenient and good place to stay with superb views of the glacier if planning to stay overnight at the icefields Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Not marked clearly in fact not marked at all. Hotel staff could be a little more friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were awesome, the room was clean but my husband and I thought it was over priced for what the room was. It seemed like the bare minimum.

Overall, ok for the experience but won't do it agai […] n. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good view of glacier but in the middle of nowhere"
Very hard to find as not clear where hotel is. Poor signage and unclear address. Very difficult access to room and in middle of busy tourist office. Staff particularly unhelpful. Room clean and bed comfortable - but be prepared to eat in restaurant or cafe as no facilities in room except a kettle.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient half way stop on The Icefield Parkway"
Very disappointed with evening meal in dining room. On hind sight should have complained, meal was overcooked and barely warm. It was served so quickly it must have been re heated!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient stop over and near to glacier."
Large rooms, clean and tidy. Good view of glacier. Due to being part of the glacier center it lacks atmosphere in the evenings.Genuine Expedia guest review
