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

It was a little dated, but so is Watson Lake. Everything here is expensive. The room was big and comfortable and clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again. The Asian restaurant a few doors down was very tasty and served huge portions of food. I was traveling with two dogs and it was not... More

After a rough drive into Watson Lake, we pulled into the Big Horn, which had been booked for my colleagues and me. It is certainly an old building. Walking into the room was like being transformed back to the ‘50s. All the furniture is old and dated. I can’t even imagine what time period had the flowered bed spread. The... More

So it's pet friendly, big deal. Price was a rip off, smelled like urine and smoke, no extra amenities, the decor is stuck in the 70's-80's. I'm not sure I would recommend this but then again we are in Watson Lakes. After a long days driving, 700+ miles it was nice to have a shower but what an expensive shower.

Considering my past visits to Watson and the dumps I have stayed in, this was/is a lot better than I expected ... Even with the brothel feel to it. Very soft mattress and very old bathroom furnishings

There were 2 hotels that I could find that accepted pets. The other hotel was pretty scary upon inspection of the room so we chose the Big Horn. The lady at the desk was very kind and was accomodating to the guests, including us. Our room was clean and, while it was dark, quaint and cozy in decor. It reminded... More
