Very firendly staff, ask to stay in the new part in the back, We stayed in both the newer and older on different stays and found both to be clean. Love having laundry avail as we were travelling with kids. Breakfast was provided and was great - lots of choice incl fresh fruit etc. Also went to the Grumpy GrizZ for dinner on thier recommendation and it was great!
The Golden Bear does not look as good as the pictures in the pictures on the web. No bed bugs or clenliness issues but dingy, threadbear and old. Very cheap looking (as is much of Tok) but you just about have to stay in Tok if you are driving to or from Dawson, Whitehorse or Glenallen. Look carefully at the other options.
This review is inaccurate and hurtful. We have no idea how to respond to the breadth of inaccuracy in this review. The pictures on the website are current and the entire property over the last two years has been updated. We cater to both large tour companies such as Sunshine Tours, Utopia, Jerry VanDyke, etc. and individual families who swear by our quality of service and accommodation. Most of our guests thank us for being the nicest place they've stayed along their trip to Alaska. Mr. O'Gorman was extremely difficult to work with during his stay and appeared to be having some personal issues which impaired his ability to accurately evaluate his stay. I strongly feel this review was made as a personal slight.
We stayed on Friday, June 9, 2006 for one night - 2 adults and 2 children (age 4&6). Its an older hotel but I found it better then the Westin (across the street where we had stayed on an earlier trip.) Our room was located in a seperate building in the back. Turned out to be a great bed (Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress) with new sheets. The comforter is a bit worn. Lighting could be better. Bathroom water on the cold side. Laundry facilities and a restaurant on the property - did not check it out. Small park within a short walk - great for the kids. It was better than I expected. Check out was a breeze - drop your key in a box at the front door.
