We stayed here before and after hiking the Chilkoot Trail in July of 2012. Perfect choice! Not only for the convenience, but also the atmosphere. The staff here cater to the hikers, and make their stay as comfortable as possible. You get a large breakfast the morning you leave for the trail with the promise of hot showers and a filling dinner when you get back - both luxuries after 5 days on the trail! The owners are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of not only the trail itself, but also the rest of the area. I recommend staying here even if you are not hiking the trails.
