The staff here was very friendly and helpful. She told us about everything going on in town that night, and made sure that we got a room away from the bar. The room was clean and the furniture was made to make it seem like you were stepping back into time. The location was downtown as the name suggests, but... More

The Downtown Hotel wasn't anything spectacular. I went with friends who made the booking. The only draw to this hotel is the bar downstairs. That being said, the bar downstairs is the source of considerable noise into the wee hours of the morning. The rooms are tired, as is the hotel in general. The front desk staff were just of... More

This is the best bar in town, and EVERYONE comes to see the Sour Toe. I can't imagine the hotel being quiet, though. However, we had the time of our life at the bar, met so many different people of all ages and walks of life, the drinks were probably the cheapest in town, and you can drink the Sour... More

We stayed for 2 nights here and it was just fine - not great, not bad, just fine. Contrary to our experience that all Canadians are friendly, the guy at check in couldn't have been more disinterested. He maintained his silence and avoidance of eye contact whenever we passed the desk. Our second floor, corner room 226 in the old... More

We arrived in Dawson after spending 6 days on the river with our baby girl and dogs. We unfortunately arrived during music fest. We were soaked, tired, cold, and no one would take us in town because of our baby or our dogs. Mary at the front desk helped us get one of their last rooms, she was so excited... More

Booked two rooms on line for our stay in Dawson City and when we arrived the hotel had no record of our reservations, but the front desk staff was very helpful in getting us the rooms we needed. That being said, even with the recent upgrades, the rooms were disappointing. The weather was very hot and when we reached our... More

I stayed here as part of my work visit to the area. I have stayed at this location before. Dawson City is old and if you are looking for 5 star, then you won't find it here. The rooms were recently updated and I was pleased with the upgrade. Check-in was smooth and easy. It is a basic hotel and... More

When I tried to book a room in Dawson there wasn't much left for me to choose, so to be honest this isn't my first choice. And there are things to be addressed to such as the maid didn't collect garbage, the air-conditioning in our room doesn't work, etc. But all these together didn't weigh the hospitality of their staff....

Everything in this town seems as if 100 years old so I can only imagine what these rooms were like before. I stayed here June 5/2014 and they are just finishing a big renovation. Still missing a couple items like towel rack etc, but the beds, furniture, carpets, LED tv's etc are all brand new. Even toilet and sink were... More

We stayed in the annex across the road from the main hotel. It was more expensive than many of the places we stayed, but it was worth it. The room was nice, free wi fi and comfortable bed. The hotel bar across the road was a good fun place to have a beer and some food. I would recommend this... More
