The hotel has the best location, in walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Spacious rooms and good beds, warm room temperature, just a cozy place. We had room 223 and were very happy with it. It is a busy place.

We stayed at the Best Western Gold Rush Inn while doing a 5-day Northern Lights Tour in Whitehorse. This hotel was part of our package. The hotel is dated, with narrow hallways. But the rooms are very nice and updated. The staff at the front desk are also very friendly and helpful. Attached to the hotel is the Gold Pan...

Whitehorse captures the feel of an old western town. Is a very small place with nice sightseeing and, of course, you have the Northern lights tours pouring in. Our stay at the BW Gold Rush was short but very good. The place makes you feel like in the old times, with a western ambiance and a saloon. I'm positive your...

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

I always try to stay here when on business in Whitehorse. The rooms are small, but comfortable. The staff is always great. The bar is one of the best spots in Whitehorse for getting to know the locals and having a few Yukon Brewing beers.

This hotel @ central location close to great attractions (museums, dining, river side) offers excellent rooms and customer service. While there, don't miss a vibrant Gold Pan Saloon offering tasty local brew and occasionally live music. Highly recommended

Clean rooms but dated and overpriced. No soundproofing to speak of, either from floor above, rooms beside, or hallway; couldn't get any sleep. However, the location is extremely convenient if you're walking around downtown Whitehorse.
