This was my second stay at the Gold Rush; this time stayed here for 9 days (over two weekends). The hotel has a very convenient location downtown, free shuttle from/to airport, free parking for their patrons and free wifi. The room was comfortable, but was showing some first signs of wear and tear. Altogether had a very good, comfortable stay... More

i lived here for 6 months back in 2002--it's even better now--not a worry--friendly staff and a good rate. And the restaurant has great food at really good prices! Also great local bands and company in the bar area.

We arrived in Whitehorse exhausted from our drive in from Tok, Alaska. Late check in was simple and our room was nice. It was very hot during our visit and there is no central air. We were on the first floor, which had a window that opened but was too close to the sidewalk/road to feel comfortable leaving the window... More

We stayed last night and will be returning for another night in a few days as part of an Northern Lights package tour.

Very clean; well... More

Big rooms & central location make it an easy pick to stay for downtown Whitehorse. The food downstairs isn't the best, but it's convenient. Noise comes through the ceiling like nobody's business, and I found myself cringing when I was walking over my creaking floors, wondering what my downstairs neighbourhours were suffering through. The airport shuttle & luggage storage service... More

Not our first stay. Interesting that we tried a number of different sites, including Best Western and could not get a reservation. When we prepaid through Otel, there were rooms available.

We have been to Whitehorse to see the northern lights. Hotel staff was fast, friendly and helped us with reservations, storing luggage and so on. Pub is open way after midnight, so even if you fly in late, there is time for a pint. Hotel offers transportation from / to the airport.
