Don't be put off from staying here out of season,as much if the town is closed. Comfortable rooms with the facilities required for a stop over, but definitely not for a romantic stay or luxury holiday. Breakfast choice is very good much better than dinner menu which is typical burgers and fries attire in the adjoining bar that seemed to...

Every hour or so the heating system went off like a gun in the room, and if that didn't wake me, the sound of the couple next door having reasonably volumed sex sure did. The rooms were clean, and the service was friendly. Awesome location. The room we booked with the wet bar had a microwave and a sink, but...

We go to Dawson City every Labor Day weekend to play in the softball tournament. Go Brother Jimmy's!! We have stayed at a number of hotels throughout the years and decided to give the Downtown a shot. Most of the folks we travel with stay at the Bunkhouse. The Downtown Hotel has nice clean rooms with private bath and hot...

I stayed in the Annex, which is right across the street from the main hotel. I tried to get everything in my room in one trip, (so my arms were full of stuff) and open the door. Put the key in the door, turned the key, and pushed, and nothing happened. Tried again, and nothing. Finally went back to the...

Pros: Super friendly staff, and really comfy newer beds. Cons: Truthfully, the hotel has seen better days. Upon arrival, our room temp was set to 35 degrees, we thought we were going to melt! - Windows open into atrium, not outside. No screens, so we asked to switch to a 2nd floor room (staff happily obliged, thanks!) - We were...

Thank you for the feedback. We are happy you found the staff friendly and the beds comfortable. We do have air conditioning in the main building and have been renovating the Annex rooms to bring them up to the same level as the main hotel. Hopefully you will give us a second chance to impress you on your next trip...

The hotel is in a good location in town, but then again, so are most of the hotels. The room was clean & comfortable. A warning though, there is no elevator, so carrying luggage up stairs may be a problem.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights, in the main part (there's a second part across the road) and although the room was a good size, it was a little cramped with 2 Queen size beds - one would have been fine for more space to move around. There was no fridge in our room which seems par for...

We attempted to check in about an hour before the 3 PM checkin time. After a long drive up from Whitehorse I was looking forward to a little unwind time. Sadly that was not going to happen, the young lady behind the desk was very adamant that checkin time is 3 PM and I could not checkin before that. OK...

Our room was in the Annex. Can hear everything in the courtyard outside..building is wooden, so very noisy from above with every step taken. Expect room was once smoking, so residual smoke smell. Have stayed in other Dawson accommodations, do not recommend this one.
