You check in at the gas station with an extremely pleasant woman and ten go back to the motel. It's gorgeous! Don't judge it by the gas station store front. The inside is immaculate, clean and welcoming. Newly constructed with a kitchen. I couldn't be more pleased.

These rooms will blow your socks off given you check in at the run down gas station attached! The rooms are beautiful and very clean with a nice little kitchenette and even a nice little fireplace ( not wood burning) in the room to give it a cozy feel. They should build a chain of these along the Alaska Highway!... More

As many others have noted this motel is a complete surprise. You check in at an old gas station, and the exterior of the hotel is nothing to look at. The interior has been completely renovated and is quite beautiful. Our room was excellent, we would definitely stay here again if we ever pass this way again. We were also... More

Sure didn't expect what we found. This Motel is very nice and clean. Very comfortable as well. The room has everything, including the kitchen sink. A kitchenette I think is what the call this type of room. The only issue we had, was the room was very warm and no AC was available - Open window and provided fan did... More

We began packing the car at 5:30am and as usual we need to make several trips back and forth. We went to the car with out luggage and when we returned to the room our card would not open the door. Most of our essentials were still in the room such as my wife's purse and our iPads and iPhones.... More

Check in/out is at the Gas station up front (kind of tacky, I thought). The building/exterior was very... unappealing. However, the obviously recently remodeled inside was the REAL secret. On the inside was a Really nice room. Great shape, well kept, and clean. Too bad the exterior, parking, and front were so bad/weird. Other pluses: Staff up front helpful and... More

The motel is behind a gas station on the Alaska Highway. Easy to find. The owner runs the gas station which is also a mini mart of sorts. She is very friendly, conversational and goes out of her way to please. Don't get in a hurry in Watson Lake as most places have one person running the entire show. The... More

This is not a nice motel it is a great motel. Do not be put off by the gas station that fronts the property and where you check -in. The motel is spotlessly clean and the rooms, whilst not large, are tastefully furnished and with everything you require.

Like the other reviewers said, if you haven't been here before this little cluster of rooms in the back of a building with a gas/convenience store and truck wash, may scare you. But inside it's a new, nicely decorated place. Our room was just fine for a one night stay. There are very few choices in this area, so i... More

You don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge this place by its facade. When we pulled in we thought the place was shut done as there was not a light on in the building or a car in the lot. Then we realized that it was the new hotel under construction. The one we were in was behind... More
