We recently travelled through Cochrane on our way up to Moose Factory to visit family. We had to book a room both ways as we were taking the Polar Bear Express. Rooms in Cochrane are very overpriced. The room rates here were a fraction of what other places wanted. We were only looking for a place to sleep that was nice and clean. We lucked out at the Commando.
The owner is very accomodating and even let us leave our car there for the 4 nights we were in Moose Factory. The room had a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker and toaster upon request. The room was simple but very clean.
The location is perfect for those riding the train as it is only about 500 ft from the station. This was appreciated as we pulled into Cochrane at 1 a.m. with all of our baggage.
We will definately stay here the next time we visit beautiful Moose Factory.
