The Riverview is in a bad neighborhood with a lot of alcoholic and drug users on the street right outside the hotel. They also no longer have pet-friendly rooms even though their website says they do. Not a safe place to stay.
Centrally located in the heart of downtown Whitehorse. Friendly staff, and clean, updated rooms (including no carpet floors -which was great).
The price. I have been to Whitehorse many many times and have found recently that the hotels are charging way too much so I thought I would try this place. The room was clean and quiet. If you are on a budget this is the place. When I first got there , even though it was paid in advance the check in person asked me for a $100 damage deposit. The walls must not have sound proofing because you could hear people talking. Internet was good as well.
The staff was great. The room was a little run down. They did not have a way to get suitcases upstairs in their rooms.
It was clean and the price was good. It was centrally located. It was quite. It was basically next door to a very seedy motel. So walking at night was not an option. The parking left a lot to be desired.
All the questions above an price no
Nothing! Tons...This was more of a half way house than a hotel. Very seedy feel, the hallways had not been vacuumed in quite some time. Lots of unsavory characters walking around...very unsafe feeling. Was desperate or would have walked.
Very friendly staff, restaurant on site. No air conditioner. But, it's he Yukon, so the days we need it are few and far between.
nice location. our room had anice view of th eriver and mountains. surprisingly quiet and clean ran out of hot water. next door to a beer parlour but no one bothered us.
I suppose you get what you pay for. The price was right and the room accommodated our family of 4 perfectly. One of our tv remotes was missing when we first arrived and the gentlemen at the counter kindly and quickly replaced it for us. Overall, it was pretty dirty and when laying down to sleep at night a bug crawled across me.
Quiet, good location
Price. And it was available. No sound proofing of rooms. I heard someone next door sneeze clearly.
The dancing with the wolves motif is very rugged. Appreciated the courtesy computer No complimentary breakfast. Gym was shameful.
The food at the restaurant we did stay at was good. Yes, they deleted our booking before we arrived and did not have a room for us. They did put us at another hotel however at the same rate.
* Nice updated look* Surprised to find a 2-person hot-tub in the room!* Good customer service * Restaurant in the lobby not open later (probably beyond hotel's control?)* Side entrace to parking lot not open? Would be more convenient to load / unload vehicle during a stay.
The Room was nice and clean. Staff is friendly It's not that we didn't like but I wished that they had breakfast even it's just a continental breakfast.
It was clean and easily accessible to downtown. It didn't have air conditioning in the room and the air became very stagnant making sleeping difficult.
That it allows pets. That it cost $25 extra per pet a night.
Good location, clean and tidy. Fine for me, but no elevator. Best not to book if you have mobility issues.
We could clearly hear the people above us walking around and using the bathroom.
the location to shopping and restaurants was all in walking distance
Great location. Gives a bad first impression, but is a nice place to stay.
The location See the above
The morning desk was polite. Night desk was slightly rude.
The hotel was tastefully decorated and beds were comfortable. We had to take a kitchenette room at a higher price because they had no pet rooms. Kayak & other travel websites do not mention this nor do they mention there will be a pet deposit. The room was generally clean but behind and under furniture there was a lot of dust. They did not give me a receipt either
Unique setting & concept. Lots of dogs serenading guests most mornings. Winter dog sledding will be my next visit to Muktuk. Lodge renovations in progress during our stay, hence somewhat low rating for the room.
I work in Skagway Alaska for the summer and my friend and I just needed to get away from the tourist for a few days.The staff was really friendly and accommodating. Some of the kitchen dishes were dirty in our cabin. Also, there were mosquitoes everywhere so if you stay during the summer come prepared.
