the building was constructed in 1942 as a stop over for ferry pilots flying aircraft over alaska to russia. The rooms are small but very clean, it has been modernized but there are no facilities in each room but shared down the hall. Since there were more women ferry pilots than men the women's facailities are bigger, that's a first!... More

This is a very basic, clean hostel-type accommodation. The rooms are small and very spare. Thin, small towels. No glasses or sink in the room. The bathrooms and showers are down the opposite hallway, with men's and women's in separate rooms down the opposite wing from the sleeping rooms. We were politely asked to remove our shoes on entry, which... More

The host, Michael, was very friendly and very attentive. We stayed in room 7--on the back side and down a bit from the lobby and shared bathrooms. Very quiet. Very simple accommodations. Free wi-fi, but connection problems when too many were trying to use it. We would stay here again if traveling through.

This is comfortable, very clean and simple lodging for an overnight stay on the Alaska Highway. It was built during the WWII effort to house pilots flying bombers to Russia. It's not in it original location and has been totally remodeled, so any historical artifacts aren't really visible, but it has a great story. The bed is comfortable. The showers... More

Spotlessly clean and Mike makes sure it stays that way. Strong internet. Quiet...friendly guests like to visit at entry area...Mike makes everyone glad they are staying "with" him. Just like at home, take your shoes off before you head down the hall to your room!!!

Stayed for one night. Our room was spotless and comfortable enough for a one night stay. The shared bathrooms work really well here, multiple cubicles giving plenty of privacy. Mike the owner is a lovely man who is attentive and willing to give some excellent advice. Tea and coffee facilities are available, no breakfast but there is a truck stop... More

I won't repeat everything that's been said other than to insist that the place is unique. It's clean, it's a perfect stop along the Alaska highway, it's filled with history and the owner Mike is fabulous. Sure, you'll have to accept a common bathroom system, no food per se, spartan accommodations, but please remember where you are. You are half... More

Located on the south end of town - the place would be easy to miss. It is tucked in along a slip road. The accommodation is very basic - shared showers, toilets and little atco trailer like bedrooms with even smaller tv's. But the rooms are very clean and the owner is gregarious and happy to talk about his facility.... More
