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.

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

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.
