“typical BW with a loud pub”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

I've stayed here a few times, mostly on my own, and once with a family member. And always 2 dogs. The price is a little steep, but most places are in WH. I paid the pet fee and appreciate being able to keep 2 dogs in a room with me. Once the pet fee is added on to a room, with a discounted rate already, it's pretty expensive. The front lobby area is nice, lots of information and decorations. Great location in downtown. Staff are friendly. However, the pub on site is so loud, ask for a room as far away from it as possible. Also there is limited parking. Rooms are typical BW rooms with amenities.

Room Tip: Avoid any rooms near the Pub, or overlooking the main front lobby street.

Third stay and was as excellent as first two! Shuttle service was FANTASTIC! Room was very clean, quite roomy and access was good. Staff greeted me with genuine happiness and concern that I was being looked after immediately. Room was ready, wake up call was prompt!

The cleanliness of room is my first priority and this hotel does have very clean rooms. I would say that the only downside is the bar patrons standing along the sidewalk smoking, as my children have to walk by them after a 12 drive.

I’ve stayed at the Gold Rush on two previous occasions but not for a few years and not since the addition was completed. My experience this time was mostly positive but with a couple of regrets. I was given one of the newer rooms and found it to be standard but comfortable and equipped with most of the items you’d expect, including a small bar fridge and microwave, but missing a security safe. The bed was comfortable, however, rather than four extra thick pillows I’d have preferred to see a couple with a lower profile. The ‘Fitness Room’ was a major disappointment; it comprises of a converted bedroom containing four or five pieces of equipment. including an out-of-order treadmill. During winter a decent fitness facility is a must in Canadian hotels and the Gold Rush doesn’t measure up. I was also disappointed to find no change in what passes for the hotel restaurant, which is really a tavern that also sells food and is not particularly family/child friendly. I support the hotels’ attempts to maintain links to the past, however, as it stands the Gold Rush works for business travellers or those without children - families with children may be wise to look elsewhere.

Had a great 5 days in Whitehorse last week and found the Gold Rush Inn completely acceptable for our 5 travellers in 3 rooms. The rooms were well appointed and clean and the Restaurant/Bar was great .... unless you wanted to sleep between 6-10 PM on the weekends.... which we didn't .... and the live music was fun! THANKS to the checkin staff who were very pleasant and accomodating.

We arrived at midnight and were greeted with warm smiles. Our rooms were very clean and the bed comfortable. Excellent shower and thick towels. We had breakfast and lunch in the bar/restaurant and were most pleased. Breakfast was huge and tasty and lunch very satisfying. We were allowed to leave our luggage in the holding room until our transport arrived. The location is perfect for walking around town. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again and, in fact, am looking forward to doing so.

I chose to stay at this hotel based on trip advisor reviews. The hotel is on the main street in town and convenient to everything. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have recently been updated. Beds extremely comfortable, staff friendly and helpful, wifi works well in rooms. I would not hesitate to stay again!
