Great central location

Stayed 5 nights and although given the wrong room on the first night was moved to the correct room the next day with willing staff. Rooms were basic but large and very clean. In the area of Whitehorse don't believe hotels get any better than this. Drove around the area and think this was the best location for getting to everything. Whitehorse is very small. Breakfast was a tad basic, cereal, muffins and coffee and the bar/restaurant next door's breakfast wasn't much better, however for the sort time I stayed there it was sufficient. Going back and will stay in this hotel next time.

Nice little Caribbean restaurant a short walk from the Best Western, unfortunately I don't remember the name. However as Whitehorse is so small it's easily found. Authentic tasting food.

Good location downtown. Good facilities with flat panel TV, WiFi, microwave and small fridge. Hotel rooms have been completely remodeled, but lobby and facade retain frontier ambience.

Decent hotel - just not memorable

Stayed here for a business trip. Having stayed at many hotels over the years I would rate this one as rather ordinary. The interior halls could use some work, but the rooms are decent. Floorboards squeak and corridor noises are apparent so light sleepers might have some issues. Room was kept clean by housekeeping. Location is good, only a block or two to lots of restaurants and shopping. Wireless internet was free but speed were very slow,

find another place to stay

When we checked in, the staff noted that we were charged at a higher rate than they normally charge. The air conditioning didn't work to cool the room. The continental breakfast would not be served that morning as the person responsible overslept and the only other person was 8 months pregnant and she could not prepare coffee. Others were disappointed as well with the lack of parking. They were told to park on the street and move your car before 9:00 am or you would get a ticket. The bathroom was very small and awkward, with a vessel sink over the edge of a soap dispenser and the phone in the bathroom. View from room was of a construction site and they started working early at 5:00 am. I took photos and they were not pretty. I would not stay here again.

On the way to Alaska

Staff was not unfriendly, but not friendly. We arrived and ate at the sports bar and the waitress was barely interested. The same with the desk person when we checked out.
