Update on this absolute shill of a hotel: pool is still closed, restaurant is now closed as well. They advertise for both and neither are open and haven't been for a while. If you're pulling a trailer for work, good luck getting into the main hotel on the Southside of the highway where there's a giant lot. You'll likely be put across the road in thrle Nova 'Suites' building where there's hardly room for half the guests staying there to park, ensuring that when you check in, the staff will tell you that you have to park on the other side of a busy NATIONAL 4 lane highway to get to your vehicle. To top it all off, this place has probably some of the worst housekeeping with hair everywhere, walls being dirty, fridges being left with moldy food in them, dirty mirrors, sticky spots on the tile floors, the list goes on. Also - a lot of the fixtures are broken or even missing. There were two different hair dryer mounts in my latest room... with no dryer to be seen! Avoid this place like the plague.

Let me start by saying there are much better places to stay that you need to look into before coming here. If you are with your family, just dont even come to this hotel. I am here for work, which is why this hotel is where I have to stay. The downside of this for me is that I cannot and will not bring my family into this hotel. It reeks of cigarettes and pot everywhere. The water is disgusting. The rooms are poor at best. The gym is an joke with busted equipment and no room for anything really. The breakfast... omg hahahaha wow. Get your bagel, oikos yogurt cup, and weakest coffee you've ever had made in a coffee maker someone brought from home. My first night here, I was greeted by a drunk in the lobby whom which fell on his ass outside in -25° weather and stayed there, yelling random things and smoking a cigarette. The staff is rude, especially the fellow who takes care of the building across the street. Oh, and the building across the street is even worse than the main building. If you have a choice, dont stay here. Holiday inn has great staff and rooms, best western is much better too.

I have stayed here twice now and won’t stay there again. The rooms are a bit run down but at least they appeared to be clean. The first time I stayed here the lady at the front desk was not real friendly but not right out rude. When we went to check in after 530 pm, they made us wait because our room wasn’t ready. Even though check in was at 3 pm. We didn’t have to wait a long time but we had to wait nonetheless and the ladies at the desk seemed irritated at us for it. Buuuut I went back a second time. Gave them the benefit of the doubt-after all, there was a hockey tournament that weekend in Edson and maybe they were busier than usual, maybe they were short handed, whatever-I gave them a second chance. WELL, the second time I stayed-they were good about letting us check in early and the room was okay. However, in the morning when we went to go grab breakfast-there wasn’t any. The whole place was closed. And no, they did not give us any sort of discount for the breakfast we now had to go buy because we were expecting a continental one. The ladies at the front desk were condescending and all around unpleasant to deal with. Lesson learned, I will not stay at this place again and nor would I recommend it.

Trish; Thank you so much for your feedback with regards to your recent stays at our hotel, we truly apologize for the challenges your experienced and I want you to know that this is not the norm for Nova Hotels. Thank you for recognizing that we were experiencing a busy weekend during the recent hockey tournaments and I am pleased to hear we were able to provide you with a early check in during this last stay. I truly apologize that the restaurant in our hotel was closed the morning you came down for breakfast, even though the restaurant is leased from us I am disappointed that it was not communicated to the hotel that it needed to be closed that morning. We will however use this as a learning opportunity not just for our hotels front line staff, but for the operators of the restaurant as well. We would like the opportunity to discuss your review further, please reach out to me so that we can discuss further. Thanks again for your review

We chose Nova for a combination of economy and comfort - only staying one night we did not want to stay in the cheapest motel, so wanted something mid-range. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find the price even cheaper than advertised online - less than 100$. The room was beautiful - fireplace, decent layout, modern, comfortable. Nice bed, comfy pillows. Bathroom could use a little TCL just to polish it up, but was in good state of repair. Breakfast was great! Standard continental, but also eggs made to order and bacon or sausage. Overall very pleased and would definitely stay again!

I booked 5 rooms at this hotel for our trip to Jasper. At the price I was charged ($122) I could have gotten a fancier hotel in edmonton. The hotel gives you a look from a 1980s movie. Let me talk of the pros first. The rooms were spacious and clean. Bathroom was washed and toiletries provided. Rooms come with a small kitchenette with crockery, cutlery, toaster, microwave, fridge, coffee maker and electric kettle. Breakfast was ok. Check in was quick. Ample parking and good wifi signals. Each room has a corner fireplace. Now for the cons: The corridors smelled old. Bedcovers were faded. Bathroom sink was really worn out. AC was loud. Walls need to be re painted. Furniture was in bad shape. Pool is closed permanently I think. Carpets and curtains are literally screaming that they need a wash. Please see my pictures. This hotel has a lot of potential if they can get some renovations done. If all you need is just a night's stay with no frills, go ahead and book this place. If you are looking for good quality lodging at the price charged, keep looking and book some other hotel.

We had booked several rooms at this Inn and were very pleasantly surprised by how nice the rooms were. We stayed from Aug 04th/17 to Aug 07th/17. The place is "pet friendly" and the staff was amazing. The "free breakfast" was amazing and we were blown away by the selection and quality of food. I am highly recommending the Nova Inn Edson to anyone who will listen and will surely stay there again!

Had a great time at the Nova Inn. Finished it off with the biggest hot breakfast to boot, thank you to the friendly cleaning staff too. I ran out of coffee cream and when I asked for more the young man jumped up and ran to grab me a big supply. Upon checking out the owner took the time for a friendly chat about our trip. We will definitely be back. Thanks Josh-man

Wife and I stayed here for a night, visiting friends, and have to say we would definitely stay here again; the room was very modern, lacked a few plug-ins close to the bed, but overall a great room. It had a half-kitchenette, which was odd, fridge microwave, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, but no stove/hot plate. We had a good sleep, but the blinds are not black out blinds and we could also hear the guest above us walking around. But like I said, the bed was very comfy, as were the pillows. The hot breakfast buffet - poorly managed and executed and needs some serious help. Hardly anything was fresh - had to ask the cook to make more and they just seemed disorganized. But the food was good once received. Can’t complain too much as it is free, but still needs help. Overall, we would happily stay here again and probably will soon, and I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a nice place to stay for a night or two.
