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

You have to realize that this is a remote town with only a small number of residents. There are some things that are odd like checking in at the gas station but to feed a family, they have to run a diverse business. The room is very nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. However... More

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
