I knew this was an older hotel, so I wasn't expecting much. However the room was super clean, with fridge and coffee pot and toiletries. I needed a bathtub and a hot soak after a long day hike at Lake O'Hara so I was just grateful for that! In the evening, there was some road noise as all rooms faced... More

We only stayed for one night but we found the hotel very good. The bathroom was clean and perfectly functional though a little on the small side. It is very close to the hot springs, an easy walk if you want get a little exercise.

Stayed here upon returning from national parks. Nice outer appearance with hanging baskets. Room basic, and rather old fashioned. Close to local amenities and a good base for visiting national parks. Friendly check in staff. Air conditioner old and noisy, and the wifi was not at all adequate, it couldn't even download pages of text/emails anywhere on the site 😕.... More

Is it an older motel? Yes. Does it look a little dated? Sure. Is it incredibly affordable, clean, and filled with friendly staff? You bet! This quaint little motel is exactly what we needed when in Radium. The staff where so friendly and answered every question we could have possibly had. The room was larger than expected with very comfortable... More

We stayed one night at the Alpen as part of a longer road trip. The room was spacious and clean. There was conveniently a fridge in the room as well. The grounds include a nice seating area with tables and chairs and a bbq for guests to use. We had a nice balcony to sit on as well. Restaurants are... More

Thank you for the nice review. Did you remove the bedspread? The nights have certainly been cooler than usual this summer. We have just ordered new bedding for the rooms. I hope that they are a good weight for all seasons. More

Bathroom is very clean as other reviewers revealed. For the price, value is outstanding considering the location. Would definitely stay there again. Appliances were newish but of special note is the fridge. It was quiet. We recently stayed in a 4-star resort and even though the fridge was in a cabinet, it was still louder than this one. Beds were... More

Thank you Marvin for your review. We appreciate all feedback, and use it to help us make decisions. We are hoping to replace the worst of the beds this year, if nothing else comes up to prevent us from doing so(eg. Commercial dryer dying on us). More

Relaxing stop after the day on the bikes, friendly owners who provided local info and highlights for us to experience and enjoy. Clean & quiet room, great balcony and guest patio area to relax in the evening and have a family BBQ. Resident Bighorn sheep provided entertainment during the evening while grazing the fruit trees on site.
