The best case ever of don't judge a book by it's cover. Looks like a total dump but is very, very nice inside. Inside the room, that is. Check-in does not inspire confidence, although the fellow at the check in counter is nice enough. You can forget all that once you get inside your room. Comfortable and clean.

I was a little bit unsure about this place at first but I was pleasantly surprised! The "office" is inside the gas station. But the owner is so sweet. Our room was very nice and clean. Our room included a DVD player and a kitchenette. I really enjoyed this motel.

We stayed here because of the reviews on tripadvisor, they were all right. When you first arrived it is somewhat a culture shock, but when you go inside the motel it is a different story. Our room was lovely and modern with a queen bed (comfy), bathroom and little kitchenette. The towels were very fluffy and soft and for a... More

Room is very nicely decorated, well stocked and clean. DVD rentals are free and price is well worth it compared to what we've paid for rooms on this trip nowhere near this quality. The big brand new building isn't finished yet so rooms used are behind the gas station/convenience store, which is where you check in or register for a... More

After checking into the gas station in front we cautiously approached our room, thinking it may not be that great considering how we checked in. We were very surprised when we opened the door, the room was very clean with a queen bed, kitchenette, small bathroom with shower only, and a fireplace. Our room was upstairs at the back next...

As I have stayed in this hotel many times, for the owner was a very good customer of mine and besides there really is no where else to stay in Watson Lake (if you are looking for a nice hotel). I made a reservation and had a confirmation number, but when I arrived they acted as if I was an... More

At first sight, this small motel looks decidedly unpromising, particularly when you have to check in at the gas station and then pass a partly built and apparently abandoned hotel opposite to get to your room. However, the check in is quick and efficient, offering complementary coffee, and the rooms are excellent. They have been recently renovated and all appear... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this motel! It was exactly as advertised and more! My wife was ecstatic about the decor, the layout, amenities and the cleanliness of our room. The motel itself (aside from the attached garage, but even that was okay) was very nice and quiet as well. We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were great, the... More

Yes, you have to register in the gas station, but I was aware before arriving. When I went into the entry to the rooms, I was pleasantly surprised to find it so clean and clean smelling. Opened the door to my room and couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I was in the middle of a 9 day trip to... More
