Coast High Country Inn
Not so central
This hotel is not in the centre of Whitehorse so access to resturants etc is not easy.
The room I had had was a corner room with a double aspect, there was also a small kitchen. Other that preparing coffee did not use.
The rooms are not large but were clean comfortable and quite.
Hotel staff on the whole were friendly.
The resturant has a reasonable menu, however on the first night of our stay the service was extremely slow.
I was part of a tour group with 48 people staying but the hotel had virtually no waiting staff on.
The young lady who assisted us did a fantastic job under circumstances. Well done.
The hotel is close to the river

Clean nice stay
This hotel is very average. It’s nice to have a pub and restaurant on the premises because winters are very cold. You can tell you are isolated and in the north because the professionalism at this hotel isn’t the best. One cool sight to see by the hotel is the paddle wheel boat. Don’t expect great service, but the food is pretty good at The Deck. Morals on the other hand was fairly high priced for the small, plain restaurant. The staff is more interested in talking to each other and eating then serving customers.
Friendly Comfortable Hotel
The Coast High Country Inn is not an elite property, but it ideal for Whitehorse. The staff is friendly and helpful, the restaurants okay, and the rooms (this is a former dormitory building) nicely appointed and well-maintained. The patio (open year round and protected from the elements) is a popular place — rub shoulders with Yukon politicians and senior officials – the most accessible officials in Canada. The location is excellent — within a five minute walk of the government building and Main Street. The Airporter service is excellent (and free).
Clean and quiet
Room was quite small but very clean. Room had a window air conditioner which was noisy and blew ineffective hurricane force wind. Staff was friendly and helpful. Place was filled up and yet still quiet. Not a real good value for the price, but it seemed competitive.

Wide variety of rooms!
This Coast Hotel is differant from most Coast hotels, with a wide and unusual variety of rooms. We booked through a booking site and we were very surprised by the tiny room with a kitchenette, not at all what we were expecting. Two other couples we were travelling with were in better rooms, but one had a large jacuzzi – great if you have been camping in the wilderness perhaps. I recommend calling the hotel and explaining what you prefer- they do their best to accomodate your needs. The front desk staff couldn’t move us to a differant room as the hotel was 100% booked, but they were very gracious and dealt with the issues we raised in other ways. I will be back, but I will phone and get exactly the room I want next time.
