Reviewed yesterday NEW

My room was comfortable and had updated furniture. Maybe they haven't finished the bathroom because the light buzzed when on and no light cover over the bulb. Additionally, no towel rack or hanger but a rack for folded towels that didn't permit towels to hang. Everyone was very accommodating and friendly.

This property was very clean and well kept. The TV should be replaced it was an old tube TV that I could barely hear. The mattress was so worn out I almost brought a sleeping bag out from the car. This place desperately needs new mattresses.

New owners. They are still working on getting it up and running. Wifi was only available in the reception area (for now). They have a nice desk area set up for people to set up their laptops. There is a gathering area right off of the reception desk where you can watch TV, read, or visit with other people. The...

Clean, quiet, a bit dated, however I would stay again and recommend. We stayed here twice within a week, first time at the location that use to be the Westmark, the 2nd time at the other location about 1/2 mile down the road as the other place was closed for the season. The price was right, no tax in the...

I hung around this place for about a week and got to know the owner and some of the people working there. All of them were great. The owner and his managers know their business. The coffee shop and front porch are gathering places for a few colorful locals, so stop in and listen to some great stories about Alaska...

We are so glad that you enjoyed yourself. I love meeting people as they pass through but often they are here and gone before you can really get to know each other. I have met several people this year that have stayed a week or more. Some of our locals are very funny especially our early morning coffee crowd. Most...

It's not a great motel but it's a clean choice in an area that doesn't provide much else. The owners & staff were very friendly. The room was clean but in need of maintenance : old wall plugs, wall radiator hanging down, older style furniture & carpets etc. They have a nice coffee/gift shop and a large common TV room...

I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. If you aren't use to rural Alaska some things can be a shock. I get many comments about our real keys and not swipe cards which many people say it takes them back. Many people enjoyed the continental so we are planning on doing it for the rest of the year....

We booked online based on reviews. When we arrived at our room, we found the bathroom was not cleaned very well. The bathtub had a crack in the bottom over a foot long that someone applied an epoxy over the crack to seal the tub. WiFi only worked in the office which was another building and not open 24 hrs....

I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We did close our restaurant at our south location because we did open our larger restaurant at our new location. We do offer a complimentary breakfast at south though. Wifi is rather new to our town and we do not have a company here that offers unlimited...

We enjoyed our stay at the Golden Bear (motel). The room was nice and spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and there was everything we need in our room. Except the Wi-Fi, which works around the reception area. That was no hardship, as there is free coffee there. We liked the complimentary breakfast. There really is a large bear at...

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Most guest come to the cafe to use the WiFi and leave with memories and good stories from the other travelers they meet. So many times I see people close their electronics grab a cup of coffee and sit for hours chatting. We were trying a complimentary breakfast for a short...

This a former West Mark hotel that is in dire need of some work. Other than that, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The furnishings are dated and the bathroom is dated. For the price, I would stay there again.

I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our RV Park. Leaving all the trees makes a lot of work sometimes but you still feel like you are secluded and camping which I personally like. Hope that you have a safe trip and stop again sometime.
