This is a great hotel if you're a city person. Quick walk to shopping and attrations. There is a pub downstairs and a club on the other end of the hotel. I was on the top floor at the far corner of the hotel with a mountain view. It was beautiful. The carpets in the hotel could use an upgrade,... More

Stayed here on a trip out of Skagway. Central location was nice. Lobby and staff were ok. We asked about Friends and Family rate which we just heard about on the radio, and was told that was too much paperwork. Why advertise it then. Hallway floors were sloped in many places. The beds were very nice but way too many... More

Very old with squeaky floors and doors close very loudly. Wi-fi Internet has very poor reception. No room service although there are restaurants within the facility. TV channels are very limited. No movie channels and very limited sports channels. Very comfortable beds with an assortment of pillows.

Well first off, Whitehorse is a warn out town. This hotel is probably the scariest hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff are not very friendly but they get the job done. The hallways are really small the carpe is outdated we were really worried about our room but once we got there it was all updated and clean. And... More

On the positive side, the hotel is conveniently located downtown near restaurants, museums and local attractions so we were able to park the car and walk. The room was clean and hotel staff were very helpful. On the negative side, the room was very hot (only rooms on the top floor have a/c). The hotel has a restaurant and bar... More

Have stayed here in the Gold Rush Inn a few times. Very central and easy to walk around town. Not much special about the hotel though, but you don't have many great options in Whitehorse. The rooms are dated but clean, the restaurant is average. Recommend it for a short visit, just come with low expectations and you'll be fine.

We landed in Whitehorse in the middle of a heat wave. Gold Rush Inn has no AC. We got a room at the back of the hotel to avoid noise from the bar - there was a fight that nite and the police were called. Mistake to stay in the back - sun heated the room so much during the... More

Front Desk staff are very helpful and friendly. Upon check in, staff upgraded us to a larger room, because we were a party of 4. The room was great, but it was HOT, HOT, HOT. There were two fans provided. Because we were on the 3rd floor, we could open the window wide, and put the fan in front of... More
