Best Managed Hotel by far
I travel a great deal and to many countries and compared to most high end hotels, HI Country Inn is off scale great and at a very reasonable price. This can only occur with absolutely superb management. (No, I do not have any connection). From the design layout and construction to the friendly competent staff-not a detail is missed. Excellent location near the Yukon River and down town. Fine restaurant menu and kitchen preparation. Professional. Everything user friendly. It all makes me a little angry at most hotels very little demonstrated concern for their customers. Including many that are much, much more expensive. Gudonya management!

Nice location, nice rooms
This hotel is nicely located, a few minutes’ walk from attractions like the paddleboat, or from the restaurants and museums in Whitehorse. It’s about a half hour walk up to the dam and the fish ladder. We liked it here; the rooms are quite big, although the two queen beds and the cooking area all in the same room make it feel a little crowded. The beds are perfectly fine, the staff were efficient and the bathroom is enormous – we were put into a room with a double-sized jacuzzi bathroom.
The downsides of this hotel are fairly insignificant: the room does feel a bit dated – the cooking area has hobs that I haven’t seen in the last 20 years, and jacuzzis seem straight from the 70s The room we had did not have good views – looking onto concreted walls and courtyards. But it’s a perfectly decent place to stay. I’d stay here again.
Rooms were a bit small but the location was good. Easy 5-10 min walk to downtown. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again given the opportunity. On site restaurant and lounge had good food at good prices.
Great, Friendly Staff. Comfortable rooms.
This was a last minute, late reservation. Clean, comfortable rooms. We had a small bed issue that was immediately responded to and solved with the utmost of professionalism and sincerity. Would stay again if in the area.
Get your act together
Whitehorse hotels still continue the practice of acting in the interest of their owners and not their guests. The coast being a former YMCA still feels like it is one. This property could be one of the best but is still pulling the “if you don’t like don’t stay here” policy. Also the act of exploiting Foregin workers and keeping job out of the hands of people from Canada is deplorable.
