When we first arrived my husband and I were a little leery, the hotel looks old and some what dingy. BUT once we started up the stairs (yes stairs no elevator) everything in our opinion changed. The hall ways were super clean, and then we opened our door to the cutest room ever. Yes its quirky with its red lace... More

This hotel is cheap, bottom line. It is pet friendly, which is what drove us to stay in the Big Horn. The rooms were actually pretty big, but the walls were spot painted, old, lacked AC and seemed cheap. This definitely isn't the worst place I've stayed in, but I would not recommend a stay here if there are other... More

The owner of the Big Horn is friendly. There just aren't many placed to stay in this area - Given the choice I would never choose a place with outdated furniture, wall coloring, curtains and bed coverings that allows dogs but there don't appear to be any decent places to stay in this area. It is too bad that someone... More

Stopped in here on our way to Alaska. Looks are a little deceiving, hotel is dated on the outside, room was clean and comfortable, staff was friendly and courteous, free wifi, the only drawback was there is no air conditioning, did have a fan in the room. A lot of hotels in the upper Yukon don't have AC, but other... More

Furnishings are a bit quirky in a good way, comfortable and clean. Front desk was friendly. Price was a little high, and the whole area seems inflated. Near the signpost graveyard, a nice diversion. Generally a good experience, esp since I was just travelling through.

Clean, large rooms. Nice amenities, though far from chic & modern. The beds were very comfortable and bath was clean. The desk clerk was very friendly & helpful. When our TV would not work, she changed our room. Watson Lake is what I call a food desert- no place to find a decent meal. We ended up cooking a meal... More

Staff was nice entire time we were there, animal lovers and appreciated my well behaved dogs. I like the fridge in room and random bathroom sink on opposite wall of bathroom. Towels were fine. Rooms are decorated in a unique manner that I found appealing. Room was clean. I would stay here again.

They were just finishing their spring cleaning, the place smelled great, and the bed was so comfortable it was to die for, should have asked where they found those mattresses...lots of area to walk my dog... satilite tv, and free internet was great, older but VERY well kept hotel,with resturants all around

We were traveling to Alaska and stayed at 6 different hotels. Big Horn had the most comfortable beds! Dogs are welcomed. Super clean (somewhat dated furniture, but very well kept) Stocked kitchenette for you cooking needs. And they exchanged U.S. currency for us.

Its not terrible, I've stayed here about 10 times, beds are comfortable, rooms are a fair size. You're best to skip watson lake altogether if possible. There is no mic but there is a small fridge which is usually fairly dirty. The furniture is okay, old stuff but usable. I wouldn't eat at any restaurant in town, I go to... More
