Sorry - I don't totally agree with this. Princess Cruises put you up at the most expensive places in the Rockies (ones that I would only consider if someone else was paying) but there are lots of places that are less expensive. There are even many B&Bs and, as Les mentioned, youth hostels and campgrounds abound. Certainly - as high tourist zones - prices are higher than some areas (espec in summer) but U.S. $ go far. I can't help out the original poster by recommending any in the Icefield Ranges or near Jasper because it's been ages since I stayed there and cannot remember the names of the hotels/motels but Les T. gave you a few and... I'm sure that they'll find some good accommodation at reasonable prices.
