Arrived late and attendant was right at the front door to greet us. Remove your shoes! Rooms have 2 double beds and a small TV. Bathrooms and showers are down the hall. Looks like it was newly renovated. Not many people here, so it was very quiet. Probably pretty noisy in summer. Small common lounge area with coffee/tea. Great historic... More

Was once the barracks for Air Force officers and pilots. Updated and renovated, the rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Kind of odd to walk down the hallway to the community showers to find no hot water. The staff is friendly and quickly remedied the water problem. It is funky and touristy, but you have to make a stop... More

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
