Best Western Gold Rush Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel prices are generally very high in Whitehorse. But the Best Western offered excellent service. It has a great gym. None of the restaurants have a continental breakfast. However, there’s a great hotel restaurant that I ate at several times. Always busy, good but not great service. Excellent food. Good valve.

This accommodation is in a great location, short walk to the shops. As our tour company operated from here it was ideal for collection for activities etc. Most of the front desk staff were very helpful and it was greatly appreciated that there was a guest laundry. We would have appreciated knowing that we weren't allowed to eat dinner in the restaurant (cold nights after a big day…..) as we had 1 under19, but loved the 506 All Day Grill across the road. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable.

This hotel is right in the middle of town, and is the starting place for a lot of tours, so it is extremely convenient. the adjoining restaurant was great and affordable for any meals, and they have a tour company that operates from within the hotel, making booking of extra activities very easy.

Convenient location, right in the town. Close to restaurants, shops and attractions. This was great especially when snowing. Beds were some of the most comfortable we had stayed in on our trip through Canada.

The hotel is a gem. Staff were warm, courteous and extremely accomodating. The room was spacious and clean. Good internet and tv. Bed was very comfortable and the room temperature was very good...despite the -40 degree weather outside. Shower was below average pressure and spray but there was plenty of hot water.

My husband and I stayed for 12 nights in a king spa suite which was huge and on the top floor overlooking Main Street in December. The staff were very friendly and always helpful I think they thought we were never going to leave hahaha. This is our second time we have stayed here we stayed back in 2015 for 8 nights and they have done some renovations since then which look great. The location of the hotel is very central and walking distance to all local shops cafe bus stops and more (we didn’t walk too much it was freezing 😂) We had breakfast and dinner a few times in the Gold Pan Saloon which is connected to hotel great atmosphere and great food and drinks, live music too some nights. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone 👍

We spent a couple of nights in Whitehorse before heading out for a more wilderness experience. The location of the Gold Rush is perfect if you want to see the town. All the restaurants and shops are within a few minutes walk. Plus the river, which has a great long trail for walking or running, is at the end of the street. We were here over the holidays and almost everything in town was closed, but staff went out of their way to make us enjoy out time. Rooms are big and clean.

Recently stayed for 3 nights and would definitely recommend this hotel. Great location, helpful friendly staff and rooms were quite nice, quiet, comfortable and warm even though it was minus 32 outside!!! Found the hotel on one of those hotel web search engines, but got a better deal by calling them directly.

This is indicated as a 2.5 star hotel but it is a solid three. A perfect representation of a standard BW. Very comfortable beds and right downtown. A very pleasant experience after a night in a less desirable property in town. Would book here again in a blink.

The staff of the hotel was very nice, polite, and helpful. The rooms are clean and the restaurants at the hotel are easily accessible and has almost everything you would find in any restaurants. The location of the hotel was perfect as it is in the center of downtown and is within walking distance to many famous restaurants
