A group of 14 of us adventured to Dawson City in February and it was absolutely amazing. The team at Dawson Lodge were incredibly attentive and accommodating even through the freezing temperatures (-45C)! They made sure we were familiar with all of the local businesses that were open during the winter season and really paid attention to the small details that made a huge difference. The restaurant recommendations were great! The lodge was a wonderful place to stay. Beds were really comfortable and we had the most peaceful sleeps. The rooms were spacious and clean and the lovely touches were appreciated (snacks and coffee and tea!). They organized an amazing Murder Mystery night for us and it was so fun! They also organized tours and excursions for us (Snowshoeing in Tombstone Park was unbelievable). I would definitely recommend Yukon Spaces and the Dawson Lodge to anyone visiting Dawson City.

The Yukon has consistently provided us with a pretty average accommodation experiences - lucky we are here for the experience and the rugged beauty of the Yukon. BUT DAWSON LODGE was an AMAZINGLY GREAT experience - clean, comfortable, quiet, thoughtful and professional. As a tea drinker I really appreciated a kettle in the room. Internet and TV also appreciated. An excellent experience. Thanks for a great stay.

There is no lobby at this hotel, everything is keyed with touchpad access, Comfortable, great location, and nice extra touches. The coffee provided was delicious,even if the Keurig was a bit finicky. We were stocked with Cliff bars and cookies, and staff was available if anything was lacking. I stayed 3 nights and would do it again.

What an amazing place to stay for two nights!! This modern refurbished lodge accommodation is extremely comfortable and well appointed. You get emailed a keypad entry code to the front/back door and then your individual room. The queen size bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in and the lines were soft and clean. Modern rainfall shower and bath, great satellite TV, a mini fridge, Keurig machine and coffee pods (and tea bags) and snacks left to enjoy! The room is cozy but very comfortable and quiet. It’s located in the heart of Dawson City which was perfect. If you’re travelling on motorbikes as we were, this is a great place to stay.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, hopefully people find it helpful and enjoy their stay as much as you did. And as for the bed… we worked long and hard and slept in many mattresses to find the right one… we’re very happy it paid off.

Fantastic, well situated guest house with lots of extras. Check-in & out was easy. Close to restaurants, entertainment, trails. Next stay I’ll have to book a spa treatment. You can hear other guests coming & going but they were respectful.

First time staying in this lodge, and will definitely stay again. Pros: clean, comfertable, fantastic service from team, about the best location you can get! The bed was really comfortable, window that opens, everything is pretty new. Lots of little touches that add so much! Cons: I don't really have any. Overall, it was a great stay and is a solid option for accommodation in this cool town.

A comfortable bed is one of the most basic necessities in a place you plan to spend the night. We worked long and hard to find a mattress that we thought was worthy of resting our tired bodies on… we’re pleased you agree that it’s a comfy one!

Cozy, comfortable, great service. Vegan products and a compost bin in the room was very refreshing to see! The check-in process is very convenient. Staff were quick to get back to me when I had a question about the room and they were very helpful.

We always try to be available for quick responses, sometimes we’re not as quick as we’d like, but that’s because we’re out hiking the trails we tell all our guests about! It’s important to us that we promote the values we care about, so having things like compost and supplying only vegan products are ways in which we can show this. We’re so pleased you appreciated this.

This is a 10-room privately owned hotel with differences that made this a unique experience on a number of levels. The rooms are very small and furnished in a modern, minimalist style with Queen bed, night tables, lamps, satellite TV and a console with mini fridge and coffee maker. There are hooks to hang a few items but no storage making the Dawson Lodge more suitable to short term accommodation. There is no view (as the rooms look out onto an alley) but the Dawson Lodge is located centrally, within walking distance of the waterfront, restaurants and shopping. What made our stay here memorable were some unique and small things: contactless self check in by key code, with no lobby or paperwork and it was smooth and effortless. Loved it! Easy connection to reliable wifi, a Keurig with compostable pods (and a separate bin for organic waste) tea bags vegan snacks and almond milk on request. The room and adjoining bathroom were scrupulously clean and the linens, towels and bath products provided were of good quality. Staff were available by text and requests were answered promptly and courteously. We came back one day to the gift of a locally made lavender pillow. Who does that in the big chain hotels? This is a thoughtfully and conscientiously run hotel with a commitment to being a green and sustainable business. Highly recommended!

Thanks for that awesome review. It made our hearts happy. We try to make up for the things we can’t control (like our location when it comes to room views) with things we can control like our cleanliness and consideration for both our guests and our environment. We hope to always live up this accolade!

I am 74 years old and came up with my partner from Whitehorse to visit my daughter. She booked us here as a treat and what a treat it was. I could not believe the comfort of these beds, it was the best sleep I have ever had in a hotel. The pillows were unbelievable that I actually looked to buy some. The location of the hotel is right downtown of Dawson City, close and walking distance for anything that you may need. I was worried about the electronic sign in, since I am not into my smart phone very much, but I was so surprised at how easy it all was. I received text messaged with how to get into the hotel and how to check out. Lee and Mike were very communicative and helpful. I absolutely will stay here again, as I come up often to visit my daughter.

This is such a kind review, thank you. We're glad we got things right for your stay. We know that for some people who aren't so comfortable with technology, the self check-in and lack of front desk can be a little daunting. We try to make sure we are there for you remotely if you need anything. We're also thrilled you had a good night sleep, we love our mattresses (Logan and Cove if you're interested) so much that everyone in the team has one! We can't wait to see you again next time you're in town.

We’re always so happy when we exceed guest expectations. We know we have more work to do, this building is a labour of love and the upkeep never ends. But we’re glad that even though we aren’t perfect (and let’s face it what is truly perfect), we always strive to be better than yesterday! Thanks for your endorsement of our self check in process, comfort, cleanliness and happy team members. We hope to see you again someday!
