Whitehorse hotels and hostels
Whitehorse can get almost full during the peak of summer, so book ahead. The VIC has lists of B&Bs. Whitehorse has a lot of midrange motels that earn the sobriquet 'veteran.' Check a room first before you commit.
Ramada Whitehorse Hotel
Lead Dog Backpacker
River View Hotel
The floors sound hollow here but many of the 53 rooms have the views implied by the name and all are very large. It's close to everything, yet on a quiet street.
Hide On Jeckell Guesthouse
Board games and books may keep you inside, the hot tub may keep you outside. Gardens and bikes are further amenities at this slightly suburban setting dead close to downtown.
Tidy just begins to describe this two-story place with 49 standard motel rooms. There's a coin laundry all year and flowers galore in summer.
Robert Service Campground
It's a pretty 15-minute walk from town on the Millennium Trail to the 70 sites at this tents-only campground on the river 1km south of town. Excellent coffee, baked goods and ice cream in the cafe.
Town & Mountain Hotel
To be any more central, you'd have to sleep in the middle of the street. (Lonely Planet advises against this.) Family-owned, this three-story hotel has 30 rooms right out of the motel furniture catalogue.
Much updated, the Edgewater has a dash of style. The 30 rooms are smallish (some lack air-con) but have flat-screen TVs. Better rooms have river views, some have kitchens.
High Country Inn
Towering over Whitehorse (four stories!), the High Country is popular with business travelers and high-end groups. The 84 rooms are large – some have huge whirlpools right in the room.
Hi Country Rv Park
At the top of Robert Service Way, this woodsy campground offers hookups, showers, laundry and a playground.
Historical House B&B
A classic wooden home from 1907, there are three rooms here. Top-floor ones have individual bathrooms down the hall and angled ceilings. A larger unit has a huge kitchen. The common area has a wood stove.
Midnight Sun Inn
A modern B&B in a sort of overgrown suburban-style house with four themed rooms. The Sun is downtown, has high-speed internet and serves big breakfasts.
