Room fell a little short of expectations as it didn't seem to be complete. It was clean and very comfortable, just didn't meet my expectations for a Best Western. I really liked that the art on the walls was tied to the history of the hotel itself rather than just the city. There was also a bit of a mix up on where the continental breakfast was. But service was great. My dog didn't come through on my reservation from priceline, but the man at the front desk switched some rooms around and got us into a pet room even though they were full. I really appreciate him going the extra mile for me there.

I joined the Northern Tales’ aurora viewing package and stayed at the Gold Rush Inn for three nights. The location is excellent, which is close to all places in the town. The hotel is pretty clean and stylish, and the bed is pretty comfortable. The front desks are very friendly, and I will choose here again if I revisit Whitehorse one day.
