A good hotel. Expensive but not by the standard of the North of Canada. Room was clean, well equipped and of a good standard. It had air con which is unusual in this part of the world where it is not often needed. Hotel was centrally located and close to a number of eating places. I tried to eat in...

Dear Lambethn0rth, Thank You for your review! I am glad that your hotel room was comfortable. I regret to hear your experience in our restaurant did not go as well as planned. I hope you do decide to come back and enjoy some winter activities and we can try to make your Gold Pan experience better in the future.

Dear H5118OKmichelel, I am sorry to hear that there was a lapse of providing a room to you upon guaranteed check in time. We do run a very high occupancy hotel and depending on the day our housekeepers clean 90% check outs. It is a challenge that we can usually manage but I guess this day we were totally off....

I will never stay at this hotel again. Bar in the hotel and another at the end of the block. Noise continues until 2 or 3 am with drunks on the street and vehicles running. The problem is the room wasn't air conditioned so that meant closing the window. Then there was the laundry cart on the tiLe floor right...

Thank You for your honest review!

Only bad thing we found was the lack of close-by parking and being warned not to leave anything in our vehicle, a truck with lots of household goods my son was moving to Alaska so couldnt unpack it all.

Thank You for your review. I am glad enjoyed our open mic night! Sounds like you had a great time. We just caution everyone to lock up there items for when parked in our parking lot. We do not have many reoccurring issues with this, if this does happens it is because someone has left their vehicle unlocked.

I figured a Best Western with good reviews on Trip Advisor was the way to go. So disappointed. Limited parking as others have pointed out - we were lucky and got a spot in the back, so not an issue for us. It's hot. NO AC and the rooms are hot. SMALL (I mean 18" wide small....) window, with no...

Dear Steamboatskigal, I am unsure why you have pointed out limited parking? We have 2 parking lots. 1 smaller paved parking lot and 1 large gravel lot. The combination of these 2 lots are half a city block. Currently 50% of our rooms have Air Conditioning with new additions every year. We are very disappointed with how our carpet looks....

We suspect this is the nicest spot to stay in Whitehorse. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotless, beds comfy, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. While having breakfast in the somewhat gloomy bar felt a bit strange, it was good value and had the best "home fried potatoes" I've had in a while. They were cut too perfectly...

I went to Whitehorse on business and I had the most awesome time. I was greeted and treated so great by everyone. The rooms were clean and the food was great. I really enjoyed my stay. I will definitely come back to Whitehorse and I will definitely stay at the best western.

Thank You for your review! Unfortunately, there are not hotels in Whitehorse with a pool. There is a huge Games center that has a huge pool, hot tub, sauna ETC and it is easy to get to by car or taxi. We are currently looking into buying some new equipment for our fitness room. Congratulations to you and your beloved!...
