I did some extensive research on where to stay for my Northern Lights Visit. I read endless reviews and went with the Yellowknife Inn and struck GOLD. I met Beth and Jan in the first few minutes of my arrival and was warmly greeted. I had a previous concern from a review about the Heating. It had been corrected the... More

The problems started at check-in. It was slow, only three people to check-in and two staff, waited at least 30 mins to check-in. Next issue, key I was given didn't work. Checkout was not any better. I had given a bag of frozen fish at check-in to be held in the hotel's freezer. I was never given a tag for... More

Central location :) and I had a GREAT view of the Gold Range - so when there was nothing on TV, surely there was a lot of action happening at the greatest dive bar in the NWT!? I did not find the front desk service slow, but then again, I'm a northerner. Perhaps just used to it. My room had... More

This hotel is just fine, but you shouldn't expect too much. My check-in process was slow by my standards, but they were training a new person and I was there before the check-in time. They were able to accommodate me early which was fabulous, but it's old school! The clerk had to actually go check my room to see if... More

If you enjoy being harassed by street people in the elevators and hallways, used towels waiting for you upon arrival, and sleeping with a sense of unease -- then the Yellowknife Inn is the place for you! Don't watch TV? You might want to consider it, because even if you haven't turned on your television once during your stay, you... More

I have visited a number of properties through the years of doing business in Yellowknife and this was my first stay at the Yellowknife Inn. It was booked by one of my oldest Yellowknife clients and I had no idea it was even there! So first the bad or average stuff. Checking in is not a quick affair. Yes, heating... More

I have stayed at the Yellowknife Inn several time and have experienced good service by the staff who have always been friendly. The rooms are always clean and quiet. I enjoy the central location that allows me to walk to any meetings I may have and also to several restaurants and attractions that may be taking place in the city.... More

A friend who had stayed there a month or so before me that his room never really got warm. He was there during a cold snap, which in Canada's coldest city would make it very cold indeed. So I am there in mid January in normally cold weather (-25 to -35C), needing to be in my room to get some... More

I stayed two nights on a business trip at this hotel. I'd previously stayed at Coast Fraser and Days Inn, but given the recent weather I decided this time to stay in the hotel where my meetings were taking place. The location of the hotel is its main benefit - it's central and within close walking distance to most facilities/shops... More

It was my first time staying at Yellowknife Inn so I did not know what to expect. I was asked to stay at Yellowknife Inn because my boss was staying there and closer to my client site.
