The hotel really needs some updating. The bed was physically comfortable, but the polyester sheets were pilled from washing and very rough to the touch which was a bit creepy. The room however did seem very clean. The shower was very good with plenty of hot water. The room was very warm and had no individual controls to adjust the... More

The room was dirty. The bed had little piles of dust all over it. The bathroom sink was outside the bathroom and around the corner very strange. The towels were threadbare and one was torn and had holes in it. The fact that dogs can stay in this hotel is abyssmal. Noise and smell problems and agressive dogs not my... More

This hotel is probably not as bad as it looks. I slept well, and the bed was clean and comfortable. The blue- gray walls made the room darker than it needed to be and the window faced a cinder- block wall about ten feet away. The two light bulbs in the room were low- wattage fluorescent bulbs, so there were... More

I quickly reviewed the previous reviews. We stayed at the Big Horn because we had a cocker spaniel travelling with us. I likely would not stay here again. It was strangely laid out, for example, no sink in the bathroom. I understand this is newly opened and so it serves a specific purpose as A Nice Hotel, next door would... More

We stayed there last night. The girl who checked us in was very nice, but unfortunately for her she works in a dive. At first, we thought the colorful linen was retro, but quickly realized they use this type of linen as a cover up. On top of that it's completely worn out just like the rest of the place.... More

Traveling back home to Alaska we ran into trailer trouble so had to stay over. We chose this hotel because the front desk was so nice! It was 109$ not bad up here. The room had two large beds, kitchen area with table/chairs, nice tv and plenty of room! We would stay there again. It's not fancy but CLEAN and... More

We chose this hotel based on their signage :-) It turned out to be a good choice. If you're reading this, you know that hotel options are limited on the Alaskan Highway, but Watson Lake has three! The room was really charming and clean. The Jacuzzi tub was much appreciated after a long day in the car. Andrea's restaurant next... More

Loved it, best hotel I stayed at during my 9 day trip across Canada. Showed up a day late due to bad weather, was not charged for the night I did not show up. The rooms had furniture you'd expect to see in your home, or maybe your grandparents home, wooden dressers, real bed frames, they were awesome. The location... More

We were traveling south in November and booked this hotel because we just needed a bed and a shower. What a nice surprise to find a huge, clean room with the most comfortable beds so far. The lobby may not have had an upgrade yet but the rooms are very clean and comfortable, no odors, internet worked great, the beds... More
