Date of stay: June 2019Trip type: Travelled with friends
We were here for an extended visit. The room was clean, and the beds very comfortable. We got one with fridge and microwave. Seems like the room may have been recently renovated. A/C worked very well, and our room had a view of the famous Yukon River. Like a lot of places in the far north, they were experiencing a bit of a staffing shortage. This didn’t really affect us. Conveniently located, and all staff were very friendly. Some may say it’s overpriced, my reply: “Have you looked at prices of hotels in the Yukon?’ To me it was about average price, and way better in cleanliness and room quality than many other places we stayed. I recommend it.

Thank for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found your room quality and cleanliness better than many. We have been working diligently over the last few years to make many upgrades and improvements for our clients comfort. Staff shortages have been worse than ever lately in the north with the labour shortages experienced across Canada unfortunately. We have had difficulty managing to keep up with everything and it is good to know that it did not affect you and staff remained friendly despite. Thank you for recognizing that our rates are essentially average for the Yukon. It does cost significantly to build, renovate, operate and maintain such facilities in Yukon and rural Yukon is only more costly than Whitehorse. We hope that if you are in our area again in future we will be able to be of service to you!
