Looks alright at first look but as the sun goes down make sure things are locked up!! People arguing and wandering left us generally uneasy as the night wore on. Would not stay here again. Was cheap for full service but would keep driving next time.

The first four cabins we were shown were under construction and the fifth turned out to be dirty. When we asked to change the linens the employees got angry. As we did not have another possibility then spending they night there we did not have enough warm water in the morning for both of us taking a shower. If you... More

There is a bar under most of the rooms. It's the only bar for miles in both directions and all of the town drunks end up there every night. You get to listen to the lovely sounds of 80's music and couples fighting. If you are a young woman, you will be obnoxiously hit on. Best to keep driving or... More

The rooms are a good size and clean. Shower had lots of hot water. Older TV and limited channels but adequate. My only beef with the place is that they charge extra for WIFI. $5 for 256Kb service or $10 for marginally better. Best bet is to bring a smart phone and tether as you will get faster service. As...

We had a nice big room that was fairly clean but way too hot. The owners are well aware of the problem as this room comes with two large fans. The room was okay but we were stuck listening to drunken rumblings from the bar downstairs followed by till four am fighting above us. Finally after what sounded like something... More

This review is for those who are accustomed to hotels in remote parts of the world - which Carmacks certainly qualifies as. The Carmacks Hotel is not a Ritz-Carlton or a Four Seasons - but it is a very good hotel providing a good basic service in remote central Yukon. the rooms are clean and quiet, the beds comfortable and...

DISCLAIMER: We only had dinner at the Carmacks Hotel. We did not stay here for the night. Dinner was astoundingly VERY GOOD. My husband had a hamburger and fries, and I ordered the evening's special: an astonishing pairing of lasagne (the BEST!) and a very good small New York steak. We would definitely eat here again. Service was just excellent!... More

We stayed here on our way from whitehorse to dawson. Wrong choice. It is not worth the money. The room is old and dirty, looks like it is falling off. And it is very hot in the summer. They give you a fan but it doesn't help at all. The tap water smell rusty. It's so much better to sleep... More

This was one of the worst hotels to stay in. Room was way over priced for what you got. No real choice in the town. But when you can not sleep cause it is so hot that is terrible. When you get up in the moring and the hall way is like 20 degress cooler and the outside air is... More

A little pricey, but the room was great: big, clean and comfortable. The wi-fi sitration (due to heir location) is a little strange, but overall it was a good experience. The restaurant out front was a real bonus. We loved the lobby cat, too!
