I have stayed here several times, but this is my first review. The city is small, so everything is centrally located. The check in was good, and the clerk provided me with some basic suggestions for dinning and shopping. The elevator is small and slow, and the hallways and rooms, while clean, are tired. I think they don't update to...

Just OK for a stayover after a longer journey. Staff could have been more helpful. Room was clean but it seems that last renovation is far back behind! Allocated room was located on backside of HTL with windows towards exhaust chimney. AC facility has not only provided fresh air into room but also all kind of cooking odors. But finally...

I am sorry to here that your room was allocated at the back of the hotel. We do our best to try to accommodate every guest here, sometimes when we are running at full occupancy we may not meet everyone's needs. If you do book directly with us or come down to the front desk we can do our best...

Hotel looked good when we arrived. BUT staff on reception could have been much more friendly and helpful. Room looked great, Large (delux) room However we soon found we were above the extractor for the kitchen which was noisy and also smelly. Also noise from the entertainment in the restaurant could be heard quite clearly at night. Breakfast was served...

I was in Whitehorse for a wedding last weekend and was staying at the Gold Rush. From the moment I checked in I knew it would be a good stay. The reception staff were professional and friendly, the room was on the smaller side, but had everything I needed and was both clean and quiet. My room had air conditioning,...

I love my quirky bed and breakfasts and independent inns, but after a week on the road, it was nice to come here and get exactly what I expected. The halls are narrow and the elevator is really slow, but the rooms were wonderfully comfortable. The bed was good, the air conditioning was effective, the shower was good. The laundry...

The room was clean & nicely decorated, which was a nice surprise considering the collection of drink vagrants wandering about our front. I got a little worried when I had to use my key card to operate the elevator. We got up to our floor and the hallway was NARROW & it looked run down. So opening that room door...

Thank You for your honest review. We do strive to have clean and modern rooms. It is pretty much a standard in hotels now to have card security on elevators and stairwells. This ensures our patrons can feel safe knowing that only registered hotel guests and staff are allowed in certain areas. There is not to much we can do...

Clean and comfortable hotel. Rooms were spacious, even with 2 queen beds. Staff were friendly and efficient. Unfortunately the rooms are not air conditioned and the rooms get uncomfortably warm at times. The hotel has provided a portable fan to at least circulate the air. The Hotel had a licenced restaurant but I only used the restaurant once so cannot...

This is a great hotel in a great central location. Probably the best in Whitehorse for a chain hotel. Very clean and comfortable beds. Interesting Frontier town decor in the lobby, but nice modern decor in the rooms. Really friendly staff. The internet is slow but I suspect all of the Yukon has slow internet!
