This hotel has a very friendly host. There are common washrooms and showers so bring your own shampoo. If you pay in cash so save the room tax. At $89 a night it is good value. However, the pillows needed to be doubled up.

The Lodge is exactly what most of the reviews state. It is clean, it could use an ice machine or many other comforts we have spoiled ourselves with. In Watson Lake it is a gem! Mike is a nice guy who tries to serve the guest he has, to the best of his abilities. I would stay here again without... More

We stayed at the Air Force Lodge in Watson Lake, Yukon, Canada on our trip to Alaska and returned on our trip home. The host, Mike, is very friendly & has a wealth of information about the Yukon. The Lodge has a great history which is maintained as it was in the 1940s with a central shower & bathroom (separate)... More

Place is ok for the night and for the town and for value. Exactly like old barracks with small rooms and showers and bath down the hall. Manager does insist on no shoes worn in place to keep dust out. Expect the minimum but good value for the town. WiFi slow. Insure mosquito's out of your room as thick there.

This is a Hostel or Barracks not a North American Lodge! We recently booked a night in late June 2014, after seeing that it had the best rating in Watson Lake, Yukon. Wife called and made reservations with Mike. Seemed like a nice fellow which he turned out to be. He never mentioned that we would need to remove our... More

It is rare that a place is exactly what it advertises itself to be. We took off our shoes inside the front door and were promptly given our choice of rooms. They were all perfectly clean, as was the rest of the facility. Michael was a very good host and recommended a couple places to eat before the construction workers... More

We drove 11 hours from Terrace to Watson Lake and were happy to stay with Mike, a most engaging and knowledgeable person. As advertised it is a very unique place and if you like clean this is it. Walking to the bathroom or shower is no big deal just a few feet. Very quiet with the window closed as we... More

A nicely preserved old pilot barracks. Clean and quiet. The rooms were small, as was the TV but comfortable. We had to laugh, we asked for a bed for 2 but got two twins pushed together which was fine but the twin coverings were then tiled over the two beds, it made for tangled bedding. The shared facilities were clean... More

Good place to stop for the night when traveling the Alcan Hwy, especially in Watson Lake. This is an old military building that has lots of small rooms that have been converted to small bedrooms. The rooms sleep two but we borrowed a comfortable cot with mattress and slept three. There was a very small tv in the room which... More

If you are doing the Alaska Highway and want to meet like minded people this is the spot in Watson Lake. The place is very well run and managed and very clean with lots of nice little extras like free tea and coffee and paper towels in the bathrooms. However all showers and toilets are shared so if you want... More
