“Great service!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2011

We stayed at the Golden Bear Motel on our way to Dawson City and on the way back from Haines Junction. Upon arrival in Tok we found out that the Taylor Highway was closed the next day. We had to call our hotel in Dawson to let them know we would arrive a day late. The very very friendly lady at the front desk let us use her private cell phone to call to Dawson City, as did the lady who was working the next morning. Very very friendly people.
The room was clean and beds were okay too. Motel was close to "centre" of Tok. Restaurant was closed while we were staying there, but they do serve good coffee.
We stayed here again at the end of our trip and got the same room, they told us they try to book you in the same room when you return, they remembered us and asked how our trip had been.
Would stay here again for sure!!!! Thank you again for your help.

In September, many hotels close or lay off staff. The Golden Bear was fully open and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The desk suggested restaurants and was very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay. Try the Grumpy Griz for breakfast.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2010

I stayed here one rainy night in June while en route to Dawson City. The room in the back "new" building was very clean, albeit a bit worn around the edges, but no complaints. My bed was quite comfortable and I slept soundly. The area that night was quiet. The staff were all friendly and cheerful folks.

I ate at the restaurant on site, and boy those two women working that night (the cook and the waitress) could put fancy 5-star places to shame. They had a packed dining room and meals were served hot, fast, and with a smile and some chit-chat. The home-cooked special offered that night was just what I needed after an 8+ hour drive in the rain. Free hot coffee or tea in the morning at the front desk. I would stay here again.

A side note: internet is available but it is not free. One hour was $2.95 and I think one 24-hour period was $6.95.

We stayed here with our dogs and the rooms were clean and basic. They were a bit worn around the edges but we may have just been in an older room with the dogs. Overall it is a clean friendly place to spend the night on your way north or south.
