Great Vacation Spot to Visit

This place was in a perfect location in Dawson City. Very friendly service with very clean rooms. Everything was in walking distance to the historical sites as well as the restaurants, shopping and entertainment.

Rasika saved my laptop when I forgot it on checking out and got it to me minutes before my Air North flight 549 took off on Sat May 28. She was so helpful and courteous, a life saver. She got the flight held so the driver could deliver it. Highly competent, professional and gracious.
