“A reasonable place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Tok is miles from anywhere else, so you need to remember the remoteness when commenting on the motels such as this. We found the place OK for our one night stop. It is a good basic motel, reasonably comfortable, slightly musty smell when arrived (it either went away or we got used to it). The biggest problem we experience was with other hotel users, who seem to believe its ok to start running their pick up engines early in the morning and then leave the vehicle running for half an hour right outside the room. Big engines idling away are really annoying, to say nothing about the environmental damage, but it seems to be considered fairly normal in these parts. It certainly spoilt our sleep.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

We stayed here on night 5 of a moving trip to Fairbanks from the lower 48. This was the best motel by far and the best value. Clean, comfortable, allowed pets, plenty of parking. The check-in is at Fast Eddy's and it was nice to talk to someone who was happy to see customers. They were fast, friendly, and value was great. There is Wi-Fi and comfortable beds. Everything was clean!

Room Tip: The motel is far enough off the road you don't get much noise, expecially on the north side.

Reminder, I travel a lot in AK so my reviews are based on the location, NOT rating this hotel to ones in large cities or fancy areas of this country. There is nothing fancy about these rooms, but they are clean ( a huge PLUS for me), there is wifi! a tv with cable and a comfortable bed. It is along the AK Highway and a great stop between the drive from Haines to Anchorage, or Fairbanks. I stay here whenever in the area. Fast Eddies Food is always good too.

I picked this motel based on reviews from TripAdvisor and they were dead on. This motel was a great spot for a quick overnight with a great restaurant (Fast Eddy's). The rooms were nothing fancy: 2 beds, shower/bath combo, and a TV. Staff was great when I checked in and checked out. It's truly a great little hideaway on the Alaska Highway.

There are several motels in Tok, but Young's seems to be the one most people choose. We usually make reservations if we know for sure when we will be in Tok, even though we travel through there in April & September. Not many amenities, but one does not always need all the "extras". All in all, a good value for the area.

Room Tip: No frills room, but certainly has all the necessities ones needs. Nice to have Fast Eddy;s next doo...

The Young's motel is an standard motel where you stop to sleep you eat something and the next day you move on. The rooms are good from size and have two beds in it, clean and comfortable. In the restaurant you get good food for an reasonable prize. It is always very busy here so more people where liking it. The motel offers free internet.

We found that during the tourist season what people think of as "reasonable" is a far stretch than what we are used to. There's not a lot in Tok but we can certainly recommend Young's Motel. Room was plain and a little small, but clean and comfortable enough.

Just remember you are looking for Fast Eddy's restaurant which is also where you check in.
