This was my second stay at the Gold Rush; this time stayed here for 9 days (over two weekends). The hotel has a very convenient location downtown, free shuttle from/to airport, free parking for their patrons and free wifi. The room was comfortable, but was showing some first signs of wear and tear.
Altogether had a very good, comfortable stay even though with one major complaint: the hotel can be very noisy at times. We stayed in a 3rd floor room facing the main street with the two lively bars; I usually don’t care much about noise when travelling, but since I was here for work, it was really quite unbearable at times. The noises from the bars below were awful around the weekends and the late-arrivals to the rooms on the 4th floor above us (rooms with the jacuzzi) meant we had very little sleep during very busy work week (the floors between 3rd and 4th floor are so squeaky and thin that you hear every single step, running water etc).
When checking out I was given some very good advice: to request a room on 4th floor and facing the RCMP/ back of the hotel. I will surely have to do that next time if I’m to stay at the property again. I would suggest following that advice, especially if travelling for work or being a light sleeper. less
