My husband and I stayed for 12 nights and then another 1 night (after a night in Dawson City) before leaving for home. Fantastic hotel and staff. One of the best in Whitehorse. We expected the very best of Best Western service and quality and that's what we got. Excellent location with easy parking.

Things are a bit more simple in Whitehorse, Yukon; There are no plush hotels to speak of. However the BW is one of the top places to stay - it's clean, comfortable and right in town. If you can avoid the odd shady character out front, as well as the surly check-in clerk - you should be glad you stayed.... More

The facade is nothing special, but the actual room was quite adequate - nothing special, but just your average hotel room. The staff were all very friendly, and the hotel is close to all the downtown attractions. Two warnings: breakfast is not included (and the attached bar/restaurant is pricey), and the elevator is a terrifying ordeal to be avoided as... More

From the greeting to the check out.....excellent! RV parking, nice dog park within 2 blocks, restaurants within walking distance. Within walking distance of very nice local restaurants. Very clean with wonderful linens.

This is a fine hotel, probably an older property but it's been updated and kept in good shape with sort of a "theme" decor in the lobby. Everything was clean and in good repair. Good front desk staff as well as the small lounge/restaurant. I'd stay here again.

This hotel has amazing staff and it's a great location for Whitehorse. The room was expensive for what it was ($175/night) for a normal hotel room, but this is high season. We had to leave our fan on to block out the creaky floors of our neighbors around us. I would stay here again if I wanted to be in... More

We arrived in Whitehorse on a motorcycle, from Tok, AK, through road construction and 90 degree heat. I groaned as I walked from the parking lot to the lobby, knowing I'd have to help haul the bags from the bike that distance in the heat. The friendly women at the desk lifted my spirits and made the first trip to... More

I'd recommend this while in Whitehorse, YT. Elevators provided to all floors. Decor is great for the Whitehorse area. It is convenient to local shopping and the people are friendly and helpful. You get the feeling that they really want you to enjoy your stay with them.

I revisited this hotel on my last visit and again enjoyed the rooms. The only concern I had on this trip was that they had a cover charge in place for some live music in the lounge of the hotel. I would think that guests should be exempt, considering we are paying a premium to stay here and that the... More
