Stayed here for two nights as part of an organised tour. Great location with easy walking access to all local amenities (restaurants, shops, tourist information and railway station.) There are no lifts in this hotel but the staircase is very wide and not particularly steep. The room decor is a little outdated but everything was functional and suited my purpose. Reception is available 24/7 and were really helpful when I discovered an issue with my room and requested a change late at night - luckily there was another room available and staff were happy to move us. The walls and doors are quite thin so can get noise from neighbouring rooms. Overall the best feature of this hotel is the location but suitable for if not looking to spend a lot of time in the hotel.

Second time even better than the first!

This is my second stay at the Athabasca this year. Huge shout out to Blair (whom I'm sure works 24/7) at the front desk! This hotel is full of character! The rooms appear to have all been redone to a very high standard. I would only caution that there is no elevator or leisure facilities, if those are issues for you this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a clean, spacious, lovely place to stay with a friendly welcome - this is it!!

I heard great things from friends about this pub. Was looking forward to watching some hockey and having some drinks. The service was some of the worst I’ve ever had. I can’t believe those servers still have jobs. Ordering another round seemed to be a foreign concept. Do yourself a favour and go for drinks somewhere else.

Sooooo noisy.

I was in town for only 1 night, just passing through. It was a Sunday night and there was very loud music, tons of screaming and loud talking people outside and large bangs (whatever the hell was falling or closing) until about 2-2:30am. Not happy and very tired.

Love the Pub but

Great hotel right down town. Love the pub and was my favourite place to have drinks for years. Probably will go back as service before was always good but this time was terrible. Couldn’t even get a drink. Was not busy. To bad. Disappointing. Hofully better next time.
