I was on a tour of Alaska and the Yukon when we spent one night at the Golden Bear. First, one must realize there are few lodging options in this part if Alaska, so expectations are a bit altered. What we got was a very friendly greeting, 2 king size beds and a twin (our granddaughter was traveling with us),... More

We stayed here as part of our Alaska tour. Tish, the owner, came out to the bus and gave us a heartfelt and warm welcome. For Tok, there is a limitation on hotels, this place was really quite nice. Room was clean and comfortable. No air, just left window open and still slept great. No meals here as their kitchen... More

The room was a typical motel room but comfortable and fairly roomy. The great thing about this place is the location is pretty cool. The room was quiet and the bed although not the best I've slept in it wasn't bad. The owners are really out going and very accommodating. And they had a presentation by an Iditarod Champion --...

We had played on camping the night we were going through Tok, but ended up too tired to set up a tent. We were impressed by how friendly the lady was on the phone, and booked a room. The room was $110 and no charge for pets. We were in a building with vaulted ceilings and were very impressed for... More

Tish is the kindest woman you will find in Alaska! She is super thoughtful and genuinely sweet. We felt at home right away. The rooms were clean and she even had started heating them for us before arrival which was such a pleasant surprise. I ended up leaving my credit card on the bed accidentally and realized it too late.... More

I ended up staying at the Golden Bear for ten days earlier this summer due to car problems and I just cannot say enough good things about the great folks who run the place. Tish and Rob were always available and eager to answer any questions or fulfill any requests that I had--truly excellent customer service! And they kept this... More

My wife, parents, and I stayed at the Golden Bear a couple weeks ago. I had booked our rooms nearly 6 months ago, and spoken with Tish. She was so helpful when booking. During our 2 night stay at their motel, she, her husband, and her father were all so nice and accommodating. I would absolutely come back and have... More

This quaint hotel is staffed with some amazing people they are so helpful and friendly! The hotel was average but very clean and well located. It was very nice to have the coffee shop in the morning and the restaurant for dinner. Family and pet friendly location. Definitely return when I go through Tok again.

Old, no amenities, shower from 1950's-need to be on your knees to use it, no safety lock on door. This place would be ok if it was the last room in town. Otherwise I would take a pass. Window would not lock, very old tube TV with resort selected channels,
