Located in Destruction Bay, Yukon on the Alaska Highway. Quite remote, but the only game in town when you are staying in campgrounds nearby. We only ate in the pub side of the restaurant as we were tenting in the commercial campground. We had the special of the day which was lasagne with zucchini and feta. It came with a... More

We were a large group and had a reservation ahead of time as you don't have many options for hundreds of miles or km. We had a spacious room and wifi, it was handy to have the gas station right there and I noticed a coin op laundry on site. Our dinner was the main show however with the waitress... More

We've driven by Talbot Arm many times on our way to camp at Kluane Lake and Haines. On this trip we didn't have our camper so decided to stay in route to the Lower 48. Frankly, from the looks of the hotel from the parking lot, we hadn't expected much, but the room was very clean and comfortable AND we... More

My wife and I stopped for breakfast at Talbot Arm. It was wonderful!! We spent the night in Haines Junction and didn't have a great dinner. So we decided to stop for breakfast. We each had their omelets, which were very good and made with three eggs. The toast and home fires were very good, too. Service was very good,... More

To all the people who gave this place 3 stars or less, if you can find a better place between Whitehorse and Fairbanks you should stay there. The view is terrific, it has very good food, the rooms are reasonable (about $105 US, but like everyone says - you have no choice for several miles in either direction) and there... More

It has been a couple years since we stayed here but they keep improving the place. The rooms have been done over since the last time we were here and are much nicer now. When we first stayed here they didn't have Wifi throughout the motel now they do. The rooms have a mini frig which is nice when travelling.... More

2nd time staying here. Once heading north nov 2013, this time heading to Haines. First time it was a welcome site on our trip from Whitehorse and the food was amazing. This time the food was mediocre and they had an incredibly hard time with our american debit/credit cards. Ended up paying for our meal with cash without the exchange... More

We stayed here our last day on AlCan, moving to Fairbanks. We had four pets with us. The hotel is great for pets ...there is an up charge but not unreasonable. Some other reviewer said this motel had Motel 6 like interior which is about right. Shower worked great. Towels are thin but really? It is the middle of nowhere!... More

This hotel was a welcome sight on our trip on the Alcan. This was my families last night on the AlCan and the restaurant served a good breakfast the next day. There were no creature comforts other than wifi (remember its the AlCan)and there was a decent northern lights display.

Honestly, the only place in Canada on the Haines between Haines and the border on the Haines highway to eat, gas up or stay overnight. If you stop for gas, say hello to Dennis. Quintessential Canadian, quiet, pragmatic, and a real good person. Offered a place for my Motorbike in January to overnight in a warm shop but I pushed... More
