We arrived here late one night and were fortunate that they had a room available. The motel is situated behind a gas station so we were a little wary, but what a surprise!! The room was immaculate, really well appointed and had a comfortable bed, good sized shower cubicle, fully equipped kitchenette (crockery/cutlery, everything you could need), an electric fireplace, good sound system, etc. etc. This certainly is the only place to stay when in Watson Lake!

We stayed here twice, once on our way to Alaska and then again on our way back home. It is a motel with really comfortable rooms equipped with a mini fridge, one burner stove, microwave, and an electric fireplace. The room was very comfortable and attractively appointed. The motel owners first built the motel for people doing business in the town so that they would have a comfortable place to stay. It has been so successful the owners are building a new motel adjacent to the original property. If you are an early riser beware that the office doesn't open until 6 am. All in all, a good value!

Room Tip: Stay toward away from the first room on the lower floor because truck wash is outside your window.

There's not much to Watson Lake, but this place is really nice once you get inside. The office is in a gas station, but don't let that fool you. Once you're settled in you'll be very comfortable and your next challenge is finding a place to eat.

This is a great stopping off place on the way to or from Alaska. The town has very little to offer other than the signpost collection however this is "A Very Nice Motel". The room is charming and well appointed. The owners are constructing a new even nicer motel next door but don't let the exterior get to you. This is THE place to stay in Watson Creek!

The other reviews pretty much say it all. This place (apart from the check in in the gas station) is quite beautiful. There weren't a lot of rooms, but they are building a huge new building adjacent.

The price might be right for what you get, a beautiful room with lots of amenities including kitchenette, wired internet, satellite TV, but it seems overkill in that little town. Or maybe we just don't know what things cost...
