This is a wonderful flop motel. On your way up the Alaska highway you can stay the night for relatively cheap, still have some decent restaurants to dine at nearby and be back on the road. The motel is vintage and although clean everything definitely shows its age. You can tell in the bathrooms that most of the work has... More

First, the positives: park at the door convenience, very clean, reasonable price, plenty of hot water, free wi fi that works, and microwave. However, the office personnel are lethargic and not responsive to requests. When we woke up there was no power due to a scheduled power outage by the city power department but the office manager did not inform... More

Stayed here on trip up Alaska Hwy. Paid $89 w/o tax. This included wifi, fridge, microwave but no breakfast. Compare this with $70 at Peace Villa in Dawson Ck and Liard Lodge in Liard Hot Springs for $130. Room had window that could not open so very musty/stuffy. Supposed to be recently renovated but dont think our room was. Older... More

For the location, the price was great, $110 with a dog. The room was clean and had a fridge and a microwave. The showers were hot. It had been newly renovated, nothing fancy, but very comfortable and nice. It also had free wifi.

From the outside, the Shannon looks unpromising---my wife said "Let's bring anything valuable inside!" But it turned out to be surprisingly nice! PROS: • Big, comfy room---we got the King room, and it had not just a bed and table, but also a plush couch, armchair, big TV, fridge and microwave. • Very clean (though the smell of cleaning products...
