Probably more money than other choices, but the rooms are clean, quiet. Central location, walking disttance to some terrific coffee shops and places...

We stayed at the Best Western Gold Rush Inn while doing a 5-day Northern Lights Tour in Whitehorse. This hotel was part of our package. The hotel is dated, with narrow hallways. But the rooms are very nice and updated. The staff at the front desk are also very friendly and helpful. Attached to the hotel is the Gold Pan...

I have been checked into this hotel for 30 mins now. Changed rooms once and housekeeping has walked in TWICE without knocking. Are you kidding me? I have been working in the hotel industry for 6 years now, and this is a horrible first impression of a property. Here's hoping the rest of my stay is okay....

Just ok, nothing special. Not very clean, but bed is comfortable. Room is too cold for me, so I use my own blanket as an extra cover. Made forgot to clean a coffee maker after previous people. And it's no way to turn on a fridge and a microwave, because are no plugs around them or even close to.

Not as luxurious as southern hotels clean and.quiet..The shuttle service to hotel was prompt with courteous drivers. I would recommend this location.

Clean, friendly, and accessible hotel. The room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Enjoyed listening to local artists sing and play in the local saloon. The main lobby felt like I stepped back in time during Gold Rush days.

After a day on the sparse Al-Can, it was great to stay at the Gold Rush. Don't let the scary Mountie in the lobby frighten you away.

This hotel was just what I needed after hours of travel. Welcoming staff, cozy and comfortable room, perfect location...just step outside and you're downtown. Check in and check out were a breeze and the staff went out of their way to make helpful suggestions. This is the place to stay in Whitehorse.
