I didn't really know what to expect before my arrival, but this turned out to be an excellent stop on my drive up to Alaska. As the website says, it's a dorm-style accommodation built in 1942, but it's totally renovated to current standards so the only thing that looks old are the artifacts in the common area/lobby. My room was... More

Watson Lake Yukon is a lovely place. Our stay at the Air Force Lodge was on to remember the owner Mike is a gentleman of high standing the lodge itself has been renovated to a very high standard without taking away anything of its original use. This lodge was originally accommodation for the airmen in 1942 and as such has... More

For what it is, this property is quite nice. But it is an alternative type of lodging. I think it should be classified more of a dorm, a hostel, or a B&B (without the second ‘B’) rather than a motel/hotel. You have to take your shoes off at the front door. There are no private baths. Rooms are small and... More

My husband and I stayed one night on our way to a hunting trip at Frances Lake. Mike was very friendly and accommodating. The place was clean, warm and beds were good. After travelling all day, it was great. TV's are small, but sufficient as we just needed a good sleep!! Complimentary tea and coffee in the morning. Dorm style... More

Spent night at Air Force Motel on 9-25. Friendly and informative host. Small room, but big enough. Reasonable price--less than $90 cash for two. Bathrooms and showers down the hall. Everything spotlessly clean. Quiet at night. Complimentary coffee and tea. Couldn’t ever get on internet, but my wife did with her phone. TV quite small, but lots of channels. The... More

We loved the lodge. The place is extremely clean and the owner, Mike, very nice and accommodating. We only stayed one night on our way to Whitehorse and slept very well. Our daughter really enjoyed the place, which is quite different from hotels and motels. I would definitely recommend it as the place to stay in Watson Lake!

We stayed one night at Watson Lake en route from Whitehorse to Prince Rupert. The owner, Michael, was most friendly and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean, as were the communal showers and toilets. We had brought our own dinner and there was no problem about eating in the communal area. The wifi internet was excellent and it... More

Granted, there isn't a lot to choose from but if you are going to stay in Watson Lake, this is the place. Very clean and the host, Michael, is the gentleman who owns the place and is very congenial. The place has a historical slant to it from the days of building the Alaska Highway. Very entertaining. The bath down... More

For a hostel, this is top drawer!!! Super clean, great rooms, internet, the common baths and showers are spotless. And, perhaps the best part is Michael, himself. Super helpful, always available to advise or help. Great place and I'd stay there again with no hesitation whatsoever!
