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

We were a bit concerned as we approached this motel. As others have stated, it is situated behind a gas station/convenience store, and the connecting wall is unfinished, giving a first appearance of a dump. But do not be deceived - the motel itself is quite okay. It has obviously been thoroughly renovated on the inside. We were on the... More

First, you have to find where to register. It's in the gas station/convenience store. Then you have to find the door to the rooms. Then you have to use your key card 3 time to get to your room. There is a new building under construction, which looks as if it will be very nice. The current building looks like... More

Two weeks before we left on vacation I fell and broke my left arm. When we got there they didn't have a ground floor. We had to walk up 3 sets of stairs, to get to our room. the room was very nice, but small. The shower didn't have a good water pressure. It look like they were building a... More
