The motel is really just average in terms of accommodations. Our room was dated, and ok for comfort. However the staff were really nice, and helpful.We went to the office and "lobby area' and treated us very hospitably. My wife was able to make good use of the wifi available there. If we needed to stay in Tok we'd stay... More

Everything was ok when we were here. I just want to share an episode. I bought a postal card with some seeds of forget-me-not in the shop and I asked Tish to send it to Italy for me. When Tish realized that no seed was inside the card, he sent another one. I appreciated so much. Thank you man. Oh,... More

The owners are so nice! Very clean. Hot water! Wifi and laundry. Best deal in town. I will return. The hotel is off highway 1. Everything within walking distance. Visit the bear in the lobby. Also a great selection of economical gifts and postcards.

I gave the motel a 3 because of the desk people. They were so accommodating and made sure we had what we needed. The room was furnished with older furniture but was clean and comfortable. This is second time to stay here and would stay again. Tok is just a small village.

We are always glad to hear how people enjoyed their stay with us. Tok is a long way from the cities but it is a good way to see rural Alaska without having to take a plane or boat. I hope that the rest of your trip is wonderful and the rain stays away. Cherish Brigner More

The check-in folks were nice but the rooms were dirty and run down; however, I believe that's the case for many of the hotels you'll find in these parts of Alaska so being forewarned is being forearmed. There is no restaurant there but an acceptable one down the road and a liquor store across the street.

These folks are the greatest. They really went to of their way to be helpful not only as a Motel but when I was injured near there. Even though its their busy season they took the time to run me into a nearby clinic without being asked and put us up for an unplanned couple day recovery. You won't regret... More

I was new to Alaska and wasn't quite used to the midnight sun, so it was pretty late when we decided to put down our thumbs and bed-down for the night. We were dropped off on what I'm gonna call the south edge of town, right in front of Golden Bear. Not one to simply book the first place I... More

This motel is located basically in the middle of nowhere so don't expect much. It's outdated.....but it works for your basic needs. Bed, hot shower and TV. The people running the place are friendly, free coffee in the morning and facilities to wash your motorcycle. We tried the Mexican restaurant next door and was surprised to find that it wasn't...

This is probablt the best place to stop in Tok. Rooms were a bit dated but most importantly clean, and the staff was really helpful with us. It offers also complementary coffee for breakfast, wifi (near the lounge) and laundry service. A good place to stop after a day on the road.
