This was a nice place to stay and good value. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Clean rooms and facilities. It was about a mile out of the town centre, so a nice 15 -20 minute walk into town for some food. Unusual to have to take you shoes off, but it was explained this helped keep the place... More

This was our second stay at the Air Force Lodge. this time we were not actually going through Watson Lake but decided to drive from the Cassiar highway junction specifically to stay here. The host is wonderful, the place is spotless and the price is right. It is not a hotel so much as a special Yukon experience. facilities are... More

For the most part it was fantastic! As mentioned in other points, it is shared accomodations with the bathrooms and showers. Everything is completely spotless and the owner is very nice and helpful. If there is one thing that I wish I could change it would be the soundproofing. I fell asleep with my tv on at literally the quietest... More

At the time of booking I've phoned this place to pass my credit card information. We talked about the Yukon and I knew already just by the way the owner talked to me - THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY. The only little disadvantage is there are no bathrooms in the rooms as this place is an old air force... More

The unit was very clean, and very small from what I could see. I really want my own bathroom and shower, and do not care to be trailing down the hall in the middle of the night. The owner was very pleasant and helpful to excuse my reservation and let me go elsewhere.

I stayed here on my return from Alaska because the initial visit was so good. Mike, the jovial owner, will meet you upon entry to the motel and ask you to remove your shoes. This gives you an idea of how clean the establishment is. After checking in he will escort you to your room, then give you a tour... More

We stayed at the Lodge on the way north and were pleased with the cleanliness and reasonable price for the Yukon. On the way south we drove all night to outrun a flood and the accompanying road slides. When we arrived at 8 am, the owner made up a room with new bedding and apologized for not vacuuming it yet....

I had read lots of reviews trying to find a place to stay in Watson Lake. Not much of a selection. This place had good reviews. It is immaculate. Rooms are spartan, but it is an old barracks. What I didn't realize until two days before I left on my trip was you share the bathroom. One for men, one... More

We really enjoyed our stay. As described by others - the owner has an infectious enthusiasm for the area and his lodge ! It is communal showers and bathrooms, but we never had a problem despite the lodge being full all 3 nights of our stay. Michael and the staff keep the place spotless and you'll leave your shoes at...

Very comfortable and very quiet. The king bed is two twins together, but very comfortable. Immaculately clean. You take your shoes off at the door. Fast internet. Friendly owner. We stayed on the way to Alaska and on the way. Good start to a long trip and nice to stay again on the way home.
