Three weeks ago I booked into the Bighorn Hotel as I was traveling through on my way up north. As I walked into the lobby there was a distinct odor of marajauna (pot ). As I got closer to the counter it became stronger. I then asked to see the rooms and the desk clerk obliged me and gave the... More

Not many choices stay memorable on the Alaskan highway. This one wasn't too bad as they go. We upgraded to the jacuzzi suite and once I ran the hot water to get some rust out, it got better. The jets worked, the room was spacious ,the bed decent and the towels were soft. Not my ideal vacation spot but if... More

It was a nice place on the AlCan highway. It has no creature comforts other than wifi but if you are gona run the AlCan you have to be willing to rough it a little. It was very nice place to stop and I would stay there again. Very nice and friendly staff and the room we had was clean,... More

Needed a place to stay on our trip south, and we were traveling with two dogs. Brighten hotel is very pet friendly! The rooms are large, clean, and relatively thick walls to slowdown the sounds. WiFi was free, but a little slow. Perfectly fine for checking email or facebook. Would definitely.lately recommend with or without pets. Walking distance from the... More

The KING bed was VERY comfortable. Too much noise carried through the walls from doors closing, voices, baggage and folks moving about. Coffee, TV, and fridge were in room and the shower worked well. The toilet and toilet paper did not work well! This over night stop on the road from Vegas to Anchorage was the most expensive at about... More

Old looking inside with dated furniture and uncomfortable bed. Not worth the price. The Air Force Lodge in Watson Lake is a better choice if you don't mind a shared bath. Busy place though in the summer.

Best place I have stayed so far on my trip up the AL-CAN. Big room, comfortable, with clunky, sturdy old furniture which added its own kind of unique charm. Dog friendly with $10 extra per pet. Free wifi, cable TV. Best sleep ever in a hotel !! Very quiet and super comfortable beds!! Centrally located, lots of places to walk... More

Advertises as the newest hotel in Watson Lake and it is far from it. Very old, dirty , needs a lot of work. Over priced for what you get. And I accidentally left a expensive pair of earrings there and contacted them about it and never heard anything bad.

My husband and I have been traveling both together and separately since July 20th and this hotel had the BEST beds between Key West, FL and Homer, Alaska! I had no idea they had memory foam mattresses when I booked the room. What a pleasant surprise!! Hotel was very clean and well kept. Yes, the decor may be dated, but... More

Rooms dark horribly outdated and over priced. We stayed simply because we had no place else to go. We were 3 females and I barricaded the door that night. Towels threadbare as so were the sheets. One scant curtain over the window that appeared to have no lock . We felt very unsafe and bolted out at 5:00 a.m. Be... More
