Hello Phyllis W, I am sorry to hear that we did not live up to your expectations, the hotel is a Family Hotel and our guests praise us for being secure and clean when they are travelling with children. Our restaurant is licensed to be adults only after lunch time due to liquor by-laws and it is under discussion to... More

Even though this hotel is getting old it is very clean and tidy. The restaurant food was a pleasant surprise and well priced. Trips to the Northern Lights and other excursions can be scheduled from this hotel.

Stayed here for three nights which was included in our Northern Lights package. Outside of the hotel really does make you feel like your in a different century. Very spacious rooms, and loved the moose head in the reception. Nice staff. Close to all the cafes, restaurants and shops. The Gold Rush Inn which is stuck to the hotel had... More

Hotel was comfortable and I enjoyed my room. The restaurant was closed during my stay due to renovations. Staff was friendly and helped me call a cab and airport shuttle. No complaints. The cop shop was behind the hotel, so I felt very safe.

Had a room on the 2nd floor above the saloon. We didn't have a problem with saloon noise as we left at 10pm for aurora viewing each night and didn't return until 2:30am, after the saloon closing time. If this is in your travel plans, noise is not an issue. Beds were gloriously comfortable. There were some noise issues as... More

The elevator was broken during our stay so we had to drag our suitcases up the stairs. Not a big deal though. The room was clean and comfy. It was also decorated nicely. Do not leave any valuables in your vehicle!!! We had several items stolen from our car in the hitel's parking lot.

We were rudely awaken by guests staying on the upper floors who kept stomping and running amok in their rooms at all hours. Sounded like a rhinosauras stampede...oh wait, wrong continent, we are in the sub-arctic region, not in Africa! Unless the guests were bisons themselves.
