“Don't be put off”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This place was quite funny , it looked like a two storey dilapidated shack attached to the service station. We had to check in at the gas station counter (never done that before) and felt like I had stepped back a few decades but the room was quite nice and comfy. They are building a new one next door. Great towels! Oh guys you could ditch the fake plants in the room ,they are a nice touch but they take up too much space. Friendly people.

We stayed on our way to Whitehorse. There are not a lot of options in Watson lake but this motel is excellent. The front really is a gas station but the rooms are spotless and the staff is great. It is pricey but you have to expect it up here. I would highly recommend! Btw all rooms have just one queen bed!

We were very surprised when we opened the door to our room. Clean and very modern. Comfortable beds with comfortable pillows and bedding. A small kitchenette with fridge, microwave, sink and 2 burner stove with all the fixing for people who require extended stays or even for just one night and you want to stay in. The Petro Canada store is in the front so if you require snacks, etc it is right there. It has Satellite TV with limited channels but you are welcome to go to the Petro Canada store and borrow movies at no cost. TV could be a bit bigger but very nice room and small details were not missed to make it an enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: get a room on second floor as the 1st floor rooms can be nosy as there is more walking traffic and p...

Do not let the look of the place fool you; though it is on the backside of a gas station; the rooms, services, and people are really nice; though a little on the steep-side of the price scale, just like cafe there. You have to check in at the gas station. But you get free coffee and movie rentals from the gas station. Also the rooms have satellite and wifi. The rooms have a small kitchenette. The bathrooms are really nice as well.

Room Tip: They are currently working on a larger hotel building as of mid Sept 2013.

Despite pulling up beside the petro can and a new building which will be the A Nice Hotel, once we figured out we had to go into the Petro Can to check in it was all good. The staff checked us in quickly and we were up in our room right away. We had a kitchenette which we didn't expect, the decor was like you'd find in your grandmas house, come very nice touches.

Despite being attached to a busy gas station, it was quiet and we had a great sleep.

We stopped before hand at the Info center by the Sign Post Forest and the girl there was a fountain of information on the whole Northern BC Yukon area.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor overlooking the car wash.

Very nice stay, clean comfortable, cozy room, nicely decorated with a kitchen area with plates, silverware, glasses, etc. The attendant was friendly and helpful, even though checking in at the gas station was a little strange, as others have noted. Even free loan DVD’s for the nice stereo system in the room. Overall a nice experience.
