While the rooms are relatively well appointed and comfortable, they are noisy! We were on the second floor and could hear the music from the bar below like we were there having a drink and could hear the people in the room above whenever they walked about. The only AC is apparently on the top floor, so room was warm... More

Was very dissapponted. Rooms are old and dirty. I didn't like the stuff. I asked a few simple questions and they were not able to answer it and were not so friendly. Location is good but not safe. As soon as we parked aroung 10pm a drunk lady appear on a BW parking lot asking for money. Not going to... More

Only just been to Whitehorse once, and book this because of an employer discount, but it worked out well. Good central location. No noise problems. Went out the one night we had in town, the 'Dirty Northern' was recommended, but full, ended up at the hotel bar at the Best Western... was actually pretty good.

Travelling from Wamego through the US to Alaska and return we stayed at the Gold Rush Inn going out and returning. The hotel and town of Whitehorse were very a very good stop. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.

Great location on Main Street in the centre of Whitehorse. Everything to see in the city is basically within walking distance - including the restaurants. There is free parking adjacent to the hotel. Our room on the 4th Floor was an up - grade. It was a decent size and contained a queen size bed, a desk and a fridge.... More

Traveling from Alaska back to Boston, we made the stop in Whitehorse. There seemed to be many local hotels but a lot seemed a little seedy. We found our was to the Best Western and they had a few rooms left. The room itself was nice enough, comfortable bed, clean. BUT this is a older building and the elevator must... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel. The room was dirty and in very poor state of repair. The cooling ducts made a huge amount of noise, so much so we couldn't sleep. When I called to ask if we could move room or get it fixed someone came up after 20 minutes and was completely disinterested and basically refused... More

There are no good hotels in Whitehorse, and this one is no exception. Old filthy carpets that were last replaced during the Gold Rush. Dusty rooms and noisy wood floors will transport you back to the 19th Century. The washrooms are from the 1980's. Noise insulation between rooms is below zero and the Internet service is horrible. Slow and a... More

No thrills but no spills at this typical Best Western centrally located hotel where we overnighted in Whitehorse. Our check in was friendly, the 2nd floor room spacious, the bathroom fine. We had free parking, good wifi, a microwave and fridge. Not exciting (nor is the town) but a good place to get a quiet night's sleep.
