You don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge this place by its facade. When we pulled in we thought the place was shut done as there was not a light on in the building or a car in the lot. Then we realized that it was the new hotel under construction. The one we were in was behind... More

We cruised in at 9:00 pm on a cold winter night (-29 C). My wife was bit dubious. The motel is behind a gas station. You get your key at the gas station. The outside of the hotel is pretty basic looking. Had a bit of trouble finding the electrical plug-in for the car block heater but the guy at... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in October. From the outside it looks off putting, but once you get into your room.....WOW!! Nicely decorated, very clean and well run. We will happily stay there again. Thanks for the hospitality.

Don't let the check in and the parking lot confuse you. This is a great, clean, small place. Decorated like a charming B&B. Small kitchenette and the cleanest room you will ever find. The 2 ladies cleaning are the nicest, most friendly people and obviously they take pride in their work. WIFI is okay. No breakfast is the only drawback,... More

We drove back and forth for awhile before figuring out the location was the somewhat decrepit looking gas station. We were checked in by the lovely, offbeat staff in a friendly, welcoming manner. We were not expecting much more than a clean room. We were, therefore, shocked at the lovely rooms we were given. The comfy bed. The decor. The... More

We booked this hotel based on a web site 6 months before our trip. This is necessary as there are so few hotels on the Alaskan Highway. It is behind a gas station and we really wondered what we had booked when we arrived. A nice surprise on the inside!! A very nice room with king size bed and a... More

Was just looking fir a bed for one night so we didn't really need a small kitchen. Paid more than I would've liked because of the kitchen. Bed was comfortable and doors were secured but I don't think I'd stay there again because of the price. I probably would not have found the front desk but I read about the... More

The name is cute and I expected a small 1950's motel. But no, this is a lovely new motel. Now there are only a few rooms open behind the gas station, but a beautiful new building next door looks like it will be completed soon. It is a bit pricey, but after staying in several old motels, this was a... More

Stayed for only one night, but would have been comfortable staying longer. We had reservations elsewhere but arrived a day early and were happy there was vacancy here as it was our second choice. The room is a bit pricey for the size but on par with others in the town and definitely better maintained! Nice decor, full kitchenette was... More

Do not be put off by the outside of this motel or the check in at the gas station. The staff is terrific. The room lovely, clean and cozy. Definitely would recommend staying at this motel. Was a very pleasant stay. Great location, just off the highway but very quiet. Close to a couple of restaurants.
