When we were planning our trip, we wanted to stop somewhere between Banff and Jasper so we could find leave early for Jasper. There was nothing much and it did serve the purpose. Pros: Location (for anyone like us) Cons: No cell reception - additional charges for WIFI - the phone booth is expensive Dinner options are limited and not...

We were driving through Jasper and the cafeteria is literally the only quick place to eat for miles around. We were hungry and desperate, a terrible combination. They had a good selection of cafeteria-style food with soup, sandwiches, and desserts to choose from, and a menu of additional selections like hot-dogs, fries, burgers, and the like that you could order...

The Crossing is the only business between Lake Louise and Jasper on Icefields Parkway, except for the icefields visitor center. So it has everything travelers need: lodging, restaurant, pub, store, etc. The room was small but adequate. There is Wi-Fi available, but at a cost, and the data rate is low. The view from the resort is stunning.

Since we wanted a place to stay that was 1/2 way between Banff and Jasper, The Crossing fit the bill. I agree, as others have said, the resort is not 4 star.....but the rooms are comfortable (great king bed) and everything you need it available. We stayed 2 nights. We ate the "cook your own burger" at the Pub the...

After reading some of the reviews for The Crossing Resort it was with some trepidation that we arrived to stay overnight as we drove the Ice fields Parkway. We are basic travellers and do not require, or expect, luxury accommodation. As our reference we look for clean rooms, comfortable beds and clean, functional bathrooms and this is what The Crossing...

Being the only place to stay for miles around was why we "chose" to stay at The Crossing. On paper it looked good, a couple of food options, a little store, gas, wi-fi... The dinner buffet was large but too expensive for what I or my young teen daughter could eat. The serving size on the regular menu items was...

This is the only game in town, so if you stop here for lunch in the cafeteria/restaurant, groceries or even snacks, expect to pay 3-4 times what you would anywhere else. That said, the food is good (chilli, burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches) and plentiful. It is busy, a good location to stop and stretch your legs, and good for people...

Would STRONGLY recommend for readers to read ALL reviews to determine if this is the resort for you: 1) Being about 100 km from the nearest motel, the prices for EVERYTHING (including gas) are 2-3 times what may be considered normal. 2) Restaurant food is very good with large servings. 3) WiFi and cell coverage do not exist anywhere. Period....

My parents, my partner and I stayed at the Crossing this August (2016) on our way to the Columbia Icefield from Calgary. We arrived late at night and were greeted by a young woman at the reception desk - she helped us to check in quickly and easily handed over the spare keys when we locked ours in our room...

Not sure why but I always stop and eat here when driving by. I Like the food but it's a lot more expensive than what you'd pay in the city which you kind of expect. Seems like a lot of tour buses stop here and it's fun watching people from different cultures react to the food and other elements. Too...
