Sunwapta Falls Rocky Mountain Lodge

Jasper, Canada
AAA Inspector 450: While there are lots of nature adventures to be had, the fact that that the cabins are just a short walk from a wonderful waterfall is all I need.
Located 45 minutes outside of Jasper on the way to the Columbia Icefields, this popular property features several totem poles scattered throughout the grounds. Guest rooms have modest décor. The staff can book a variety of tours, from white-water rafting, helicopter, fishing, birding and canoeing tours to horseback riding. Guests also receive complimentary self-driving tour itineraries. There is a great gift shop on-site.

Wickaninnish Inn/Jeremy Koreski

Wickaninnish Inn

Tofino, Canada
AAA Inspector 557: I marvel at how the inn is built on a rocky point with spectacular views of crashing waves during Pacific Ocean storms.
One of the hotel buildings is built on the rocks overlooking the ocean. Rooms have many extras, ranging from locally made soaps to back packs to beach blankets and an evening glass of port. When the tide is out, expect miles of sandy beach that's perfect for beachcombers. Be sure to ask for a room in the original section that overlooks the rocky shoreline; you'll get a real show when the waves come crashing in during one of Tofino's wild winter storms. The inn has a short closing each year in January.

AAA Inspector 31: When I find water bowls at the valet parking stand and my pet's name listed on a doggy chalk board at registration, I know my pet is welcome.
This downtown hotel has an expansive lobby decorated with chandeliers and Mediterranean-style frescoes. While the majority of the guest rooms are large, there are a few that some would find a bit small so double check when registering.
