“Remember you're in Tok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Clean. Good value and adjacent to the best restaurant in town. This is Tok - interior Alaska and for the money this place is just about perfect. Think, updated 1950"s motor hotel and you get the picture.

We stayed here and the lack of air con was awful...NOTE TO MOTEL - WHEN IT IS HOT LEAVE WINDOWS AND BLINDS CLOSED - NOT OPEN ALL DAY....Our room was clean. As our room was next to the washing room, I can only assume that this added to the heat.

This place is also noisy with trucks leaving early - Fast Eddy's is OK -

All in all I would NOT stay here again.

Young's Motel is a good place to stay in Tok while passing through on a road trip into or out of the interior of Alaska. However, be forewarned that the accommodations are very basic. There is no air conditioning (on the day we stayed at the motel, it would have been nice), no refrigerator, no microwave, and even no shampoo in the shower. There is complimentary wi-fi, but the router was malfunctioning on the day of our stay, and it took three calls to the front desk to make the staff realize the problem was on their end, not in our computer "fleet." One positive about the motel is that one can park right outside their room door - makes loading / unloading very easy.

On the whole, I would probably stay here again if the need arose, but be aware the accommodations are basic.

While on a motorcycle trip from PA to AK I stopped in Tok for dinner and a place to stay, it had been a long hard day from Dawson over Top of the World Highway through Chicken and into Tok.

After the ride that day Tok and Youngs Motel seemed like I made it back to the real world, it was a very welcomed sight.

The employees were very friendly and helpful, I got the second to the last room available that night. The rooms were a little small BUT they were clean and comfortable. They have wifi and they have a restaurant "Fast Eddy's" on the property. I had dinner here that night and breakfast in the morning. All the employees were friendly and helpful from the motel and the restaurant.

I would stay here again without question if I was in Tok, AK looking for a room!

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.

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.
