tekarra is old but it is like granpa's cottage.you love going there staff very helpful.mice don't bite if you leave food out they will come so put it away you are in the woods dummy.what about the elk that walk through i guess that they should put up gates keep them out or all the animals out .only bitchie people welcome here. don't like mice stay out of the woods.i think that tekarra is not the only one with small problems check with other hotels in the woods see what they have.
This was a great place to stay. Having done both private stays with visiting family and taking a large group of kids on a leadership retreat, everyone we've been with has been impressed each time by the staff and cabins themselves. Its not a Holiday Inn, but for a great experience in Jasper National Park, its hard to beat.
The setting is wonderful, surrounded by the river and mountain scapes. The buildings are cute but you know you are in nature. Older buildings and facilities mean that it is not really fancy, and not very sound proof, but still a lovely and wonderful place to stay. We have stayed in the Bed and Breakfast rooms and have really enjoyed the excellent breakfast buffet.
We spend there 2 nights. The first night we were awaken by strange noises. After turning on the light several times we couldn�t see anything. However, a cookie we left on the floor disappeared in just a few minutes and then the hubbub continued all night. Next morning the girl from the front desk told us that �it could be a mouse that entered when we opened the door (of the cabin)�. �What would you expect? We are in the middle of the wilderness.� She promised she�ll have someone laying a trap for the presumed intruder, since the regulations of the Park prohibited the use of poison. The next evening, we were reading in the bed when a mouse came out from behind the stove/fridge in the middle of the room. The little fellow didn�t seem too impressed with our presence. We went to the front desk again, and a guy laid a trap and told us that �if we want, we can change the bait ourselves�. And so we did for a while, because mice seemed to jump in the trap like fish from an overcrowded pond. However, after throwing away four cadavers, we gave up because it was clear it made no sense. Next morning the staff admitted they have a mice problem but they seem seemed nonchalant about it. �What can we do?� We say: the least you can do is to add this bit of information in your brochure. Maybe some people are not so happy to have mice as pets in their room. Tekkara Lodge, thank you for spoiling our last two days of vacation!
We just stayed here last week and were not impressed. After staying in 5 different places around Banff and Jasper, this was by far the worst for customer service and appeal. The bathroom was horribly cramped, the shower was moldy, the mattress was old, the towels were small and thin, and so on. The customer service was spotty - there was an especially snotty woman who checked us in. The cabin looked like it had some work done on it, but little effort was made to make it look original. Cigarette smoke from neighbors flooded through our bathroom vents and woke me up in the morning. The restaurant was amazing - but it is no shock to find out it is not managed by the owners of the lodge. Alpine Village looks much nicer.
We have stayed here often in the last 10 years and thoroughly enjoy it each time. If you're looking for a rustic, back-to-nature, yet civilized stay, this is the place to be! No phones or TVs in the cabins which I enjoy being released from those modern day conveniences for awhile. The kitchenettes are well-equipped and clean, making for easy and quick meal preparation. The fireplaces are a wonderful and cozy touch. We LOVE Tekarra!! It's the ONLY place we stay in Jasper!
