The motel was very nice as the name suggests. The room was clean, cozy and well appointed. The bed was excellent which is the most important thing after a long day of driving. The young man at the desk/store was a huge help to me as we had a flat tire just as we arrived. I can't thank him enough...

If you've traveled the Alaskan Highway you know that hotels in general are scarce. Then to find a nice one is even more rare! They are currently building a much bigger hotel next to the current one and I can only imagine how nice it will be! Yes, it very odd you check in at the gas station up front....

Like others who stayed here, I was surprised to see the gas station where we checked in for this quaint hotel. But it is clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The rooms are nicely decorated, including a fireplace and a complete kitchen. We slept like logs in the queen-size bed. Free wi-fi, cable TV. We'd recommend this to anyone traveling through Watson...

This place was fantastic! Maybe because our first impressions from the outside were so concerning....No....the place was fantastic. Newly remodeled, kitchen area with burners, fridge, tastefully decorated, comfortable wrought iron bed and even a electric fireplace in the corner to add to the ambiance. It looked and felt very fresh and clean. The bath was modern and immaculate. Our first...

A small motel in Watson Lake that has very comfortable beds. The location is very quite and very clean. Within walking distance of Kathy's Kitchen which is a very good place to eat, there is no restraint on site. You check into the motel at the gas station in front.

GREAT, GREAT AND GREAT. Did I say great? The owner was friendly and very helpful when I needed it. Store clean, great staff with great customer service. Although I did not stay at the hotel. It looks new. And if she hires the same kind of staff as at the gas station, then you can't go wrong. A Nice will...

We had booked two rooms in this hotel against a credit card, but got delayed in checking in. The manager did not inform the owner, and when we reached, there was only one room left. The owner felt sorry, and helped us get room in an adjoining hotel. She did not charge for the one room we occupied. The rooms...

This room was very beautiful and had everything we could have needed. The rooms were very clean and it was one of the best hotels we have stayed in on our long trip up to the Yukon. Only downfall is no air conditioning but they provide you with a fan and it cools down enough at night that you can...

Great place to stay. Tucked away behind the gas station, the rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Many nice touches were in the room, including a quaint kitchenette and a fireplace. There was no air conditioning but there was a fan provided. Comfortable bed and beautiful linens. Hard wired internet access is a little slow but still works well....

Rooms are cozy. We slept 2 adults on a queen and one 10yo on the floor and were quite happy. Nice touches. If you have a desire to hook up your phone to speakers, they have a nice setup. Kitchen is decent for a few nights. Everything well kept. No Pool. But gas station and convenience all a part of...
