I stayed here on my very first trip to the Yukon. It is a great hotel right downtown with friendly staff and the room was large and clean. The attached restaurant had great eats and drinks also. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to explore Whitehorse!

Great decoration in lobby not disappointed by the nice spacious clean room. The free WiFi is adequate but not super fast. The attached resturaunt was great for breakfast. The location is good and since Whitehorse is a small town everything is within a 20 min walk at the most and 10 min should cover most destinations.

Overall a fine place to stay. While a bit dated it somehow fits with the whole experience of visiting whitehorse. Beds were comfortable and staff very friendly and helpful. The location right on Main Street is very handy and easy walking distance to most places in town.

Quiet hotel, nice comfortable room, friendly personnel, parking a short walk away, liked the old western decor of the lobby, really liked the heating system (normal electric heaters like back home, no noisy hot air blowing machines that wake you during the night).

I travel to Whitehorse frequently and have stayed at several local hotels (see other reviews) so far this is my favourite. A comfy bed, relatively quiet even with early Whitehorse flights and a nice shower. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Whitehorse doesn't seem to have ant outstanding hotels but the Goldrush isn't bad.

The amenities were standard, with free wifi -- although it was down for awhile. The rooms were clean, the bed comfy, but there was no real view. They didn't have a very good parking situation, but we did find a place to park.

We stayed in the Best Western Gold Rush Inn following a recent trip to the Yukon. The location was great and the Inn offered a free shuttle to the airport which was appreciated.

Great location, airport shuttle and restaurant open 7 days/week. Room heating didn't work properly and the solution offered by maintenance was to use a space heater. Other than that, I have stayed here 3 times and would stay again.

I doubt that there will be a problem with vacancies in March. However, I'd strongly consider looking at another property.
