I found the desk staff friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and cozy. The room was clean and had a kitchenette as well as a great flat screen TV. This property was suggested by a friend of mine, who is a truck driver. No place is perfect but this place is nicer than most.

Wasn't a bad stay. The room was clean and the hotel was well kept. The bathroom was ok, but the tub had no slip guard on the bottom and I fell getting in and left a huge bruise about 3inches round on my leg. We liked the feel of the older head boards and desk they had in the room.... More

This wasn't great. Room was furnished with mis matching grammas furniture. Sheets were grade school striped sheets and we'll past needing replacement. Poorly patched purple walls made me feel like I was in my friends grandma's spare bedroom in the basement. No sink in bathroom so that door handle is nasty. Before you go in. Stop.... Walk seven feet to... More

One receptionist was odd and stared us down as we brought our things in. The others ones were nice. The walls were so thin and the floor was hallow. I could hear everything outside. The room was clean and functional but thats all the nice things I can say. I dont expect the ritz but Id like a restful night... More

Don't be like me, plan ahead and book another hotel. 99% of people are using Watson Lake as a stop to or from Whitehorse. All the other motels were booked so I was trapped at the Big Horn for an outrageous price. I knew it was going to be rough but I didn't expect this. Walls are paper thin. Beds... More

This was our third stop from Palmer, AK to Brainard, MN. We managed to get in this hotel as they only had two rooms left. The price was a little higher, but the room was spacious. The beds were the best we experienced on this trip, which is what you need at 2 am! The room set up was a... More

Stopped here on our way to Whitehorse on the Alaskan Highway. The rooms were large and comfortable. The furniture was on the older side but clean and quite charming. We had two queen beds, a flat screen tv, a desk, table and chairs. The bathroom was a decent size and my wife loved the blue fixtures. The sink was in... More

We stayed at this hotel because it is pet friendly. Some reviewers whined about the surly office staff. She was great. Not only friendly but helpful. This is NOT the Ritz, but for a little hotel in the Yukon, it was both clean and quiet. The furniture is dated, but I applaud the owner in holding out for a 70's... More

Can't be too picky at 9 pm when you're looking for a room at the inn. This place was interesting. The hallway was papered in a lavender and blue floral print, and our room had maroon lace curtains. But the room was spacious, the WiFi connection was fine, and TV worked. It was clean and comfortable.
