The hotel is older with a comfortable vintage feel in the lobby. Staff was pleasant. Our room 110, on the first floor was clean with newer led lighting that is harsh and sparatic. The room was also very hot but, they do provide a fan. The bar next door had Electronica type music thumping trough the wall from around 10:00...

Stayed just one night here en route to Dawson, but no complaints! The bed was super comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. My only complaint was the paper thin walls! I might have had an elephant in the room above me! All in all, i would stay here again.

This is a 3-star hotel and they charge 3-star prices, so I have learnt to not expect too much for it. Stayed here as part of the Northern Tales Tour for 2 nights. Pros - Good location in downtown area with some restaurants nearby - Shopping is very convenient - Large and comfortable rooms and bedding Con - The noise!...

Overall experience was ok, staff was great, hotel was clean but the decor and overall appearance needs to be upgraded. Inside and out this busy hotel really could benefit from a complete upgrade, its old out of date and run down.... But it has a really great location in downtown Whitehorse and is walkable to everywhere.

The room was fine. There is live music in the Gold Pan Saloon from Thurs–Sunday night. Depending on where your room is, you may or may not hear the music. I heard it but wasn't bothered by it. The rooms have a TV, mini fridge, microwave, and wifi access. Nice location as you are not too far from various restaurants...

Very tired decor, overpriced, unfriendly welcome, no help at all offered with our very heavy bags! Rooms, tiny and uncomfortable. Ours had a crazy double bath taking up half the space. Ran it but it left a green murky line all around the bath on the waterline. Yuck.

Rooms were quiet and beds were comfortable. Each room contains a television, microwave, and refrigerator. The baths are nice - look newly renovated. Very comfortable place to stay. Seems very safe too.
