“Carmacks Hotel RV campground”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Looks alright at first look but as the sun goes down make sure things are locked up!! People arguing and wandering left us generally uneasy as the night wore on. Would not stay here again. Was cheap for full service but would keep driving next time.

The first four cabins we were shown were under construction and the fifth turned out to be dirty. When we asked to change the linens the employees got angry. As we did not have another possibility then spending they night there we did not have enough warm water in the morning for both of us taking a shower. If you can manage driving the way from whitehorse to dawson city without a night in between, do it!

There is a bar under most of the rooms. It's the only bar for miles in both directions and all of the town drunks end up there every night. You get to listen to the lovely sounds of 80's music and couples fighting. If you are a young woman, you will be obnoxiously hit on. Best to keep driving or sleep in your car.

The rooms are a good size and clean. Shower had lots of hot water. Older TV and limited channels but adequate. My only beef with the place is that they charge extra for WIFI. $5 for 256Kb service or $10 for marginally better. Best bet is to bring a smart phone and tether as you will get faster service. As a frequent business traveller I found this charge to be over the top. But they have one of the only shows in town and don't care what you think. Also be warned Beer off sale in the lounge is pricey.

Room Tip: upstairs room at the far end away from the bar.

This review is for those who are accustomed to hotels in remote parts of the world - which Carmacks certainly qualifies as.

The Carmacks Hotel is not a Ritz-Carlton or a Four Seasons - but it is a very good hotel providing a good basic service in remote central Yukon. the rooms are clean and quiet, the beds comfortable and the 1960's vintage shower works great. We were there in November, the temperature about -15 degrees but the hotel perfectly comfortable. The hotel serves local miners, loggers and supporting contractors and compares well with the numerous similar remote hotels in small settlements across the continent.

The food was good, the bar quiet most nights but the locals very hospitable and be warned a quickie can turn into an all nighter on a Friday night!

Room Tip: Make sure you are away from the bar.

DISCLAIMER: We only had dinner at the Carmacks Hotel. We did not stay here for the night. Dinner was astoundingly VERY GOOD. My husband had a hamburger and fries, and I ordered the evening's special: an astonishing pairing of lasagne (the BEST!) and a very good small New York steak. We would definitely eat here again. Service was just excellent! (Who knew?!)

We stayed here on our way from whitehorse to dawson. Wrong choice. It is not worth the money. The room is old and dirty, looks like it is falling off. And it is very hot in the summer. They give you a fan but it doesn't help at all. The tap water smell rusty. It's so much better to sleep in your car. There is nothing else around, except a very pricey grocery store and a restaurant next to the motel. They have wooden chalet which is cooler but in poor condition.
Would be better off to drive all the way to dawson city without stopping, or stay in coal mine campground/ mukluk manor.
