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!

First we think, oh, bathroom sharing and small rooms, but when Mike shows us the house: very clean, very calm and a homely atmosphere, we say,that's it! We stay two times in this lodge. The beds are ok, and Mike is always there when you need a help in everything. Thank you Mike, you have the best house in the... More

Once you get over the bathroom sharing and the rules about taking off your shoes at the door, it is not a bad place. It is very clean and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. Beds aren't bad. Nothing fancy but adequate and the price is right.

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
