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.

This is a really nice place, likely the best in Watson Lake. Like others said, the checking is at a separate counter inside the station. But checkin was relatively fast. The owner seems like a nice gal with a great attitude and sense of humor. She is building a new two-story complex next door, but it is not yet complete.... More

As noted the check-in process is a bit sketchy...but don't be intimidated. The rooms - unbelievable, the owners are Yukon Gold! Fresh, modern, comfortable...you're in for a treat! Exceptionally clean, as a Yukoner who travels A Lot...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I think everything has been said about this motel. Clean, nicely decorated with everything you need for your stay plus some surprising extra's. Do not be put off by the check-in, it really doesn't do it justice.

This was rated #2 but I don't know why. The #1 rated didn't have private bathrooms, when you read the reviews, and the locals say is not nearly as nice. Don't let the fact that you check in at the convenience store/gas station put you off. The rooms are exceptional, especially for a small rural town. After coming thru rural... More
