The hotel is okay, the balconys were closed (maybe bc of the season). Rooms are average, nothing great, nothing to complain. What's completely inacceptable: In the morning they had no warm/hot water supply. Only 4°C cold water! Showering was impossible, and the staff couldn't handle the situation. No information, how long does it take to fix, no effort to calm... More

The YK Inn is located in the heart of the action, which is sometimes too much action. I'm from Toronto so am used to crowds and a few rough characters. During the week all is fairly tame but the action heats up on a Saturday night. I did feel a little uncomfortable walking solo in that area. The room was... More

Rooms tiny. TV & WIFI not working. Adjoining restaurant as it seems all restaurants inYellowknife well over prised for average food. Noisy and outside construction noise early in the morning. Would not recommend to anyone.

Room number 1: so small I had to go outside to change my mind. Room number 2: freezing cold because all three windows were wide open. No problem, just close them, right? Not so much. Window 1 closed fine. Window 2 had no lever to close the window. Window 3 could not be closed as the entire mechanism was broken.... More

Yellowknife Inn is right in the centre of the CBD (well it's as close as you get to a CBD) in Yellowknife. It's quite old, its rooms are quite old and it is predominantly a place accommodating bus loads of Japanese tourists who come to see the Northern Lights. Truck loads of them keep the housekeeping staff very busy so... More

Made a huge mistake by staying here in June. It was 27 degrees outside and about 85 degrees in my room. NO Air-Conditioning in any of the rooms! The windows open (great) BUT no screens in my room so the choice was to boil in the room or be eaten alive by mosquitos! Also, arrived on a Monday evening 9:30... More

It's central to downtown, it's clean, it has the Aurora Village (Northern Lights) tours, and it's relatively cheap. While there are newer options, the location of this place (especially when it's cold) make it attractive.

Exactly what you need when you're travelling up north. Northern service isn't what you would expect in the south, but the staff were all nice enough to me and willing to help out whenever I had questions. The restaurant/bar is pretty good, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. If possible, try to get a room away from the elevator,... More
