The property itself is getting a little dated and is due for a renovation. The lead up to the hotel is lackluster and the lobby is standard at best. The property is without a lounge which seems odd for a 14 floor hotel. They instead opt for a continental breakfast and bring in hot plates for dinner during the work... More

Great hotel. The staff are very professional, friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Nicely located, a couple of blocks away from the downtown core but close enough to be able to walk. Place to stay if you are in YK.

Coast Fraser hotel was an excellent hotel for our short visit and I would recommend it to anyone , especially for an extended stay. The beds were very comfortable and the view was exceptional from our balcony. Staff were friendly, informative and very efficient. The hotel was very clean.

We decided to do a trip to Yellowknife so that we could experience the Northwest Territories and so that we could see where Highway 4 ends and the Ice Road begins. We chose the Coast Fraser Tower as it was ranked #1 in Yellowknife. We were disappointed to find a nice room that just was not clean. The refrigerator (a... More

I visited Yellowknife as part of a larger trip to Canada. The hotel selection in Yellowknife is rather limited to say the least, but this seemed one of the better choices. The suite was HUGE, although a little dated but still clean. The free breakfast was basic but there was enough choice to fill you up. A taxi from the... More

This hotel was a great way to save money instead of going out for dinner every night, the kitchenette was stocked with all the required dishes and necessities. We had a balcony overlooking Great Slave Lake, the view was perfect. It is walking distance to downtown and most attractions. Look forward to my next visit with the kids.

This place is not cheap (competitive for Yellowknife though) and the suites are very large with a fully equipped kitchen (stove/oven, fridge, dishwasher), large living room and bedroom. The front desk service was very good - several staff helped us out with questions and tips. The rooms are showing a bit of age but not yet at the point of... More

Very expensive hotel for very little satisfaction. Wood construction building so it's very very noisy. Lots of people that live here so the regulars kind of rule the place. Very spacious rooms, comfortable beds, great TV in the main room only and lots of channels to choose from. Internet signal was strong. Shower was a pain to figure out and... More

The room was rather spacious with a functional kitchen that is very convenient when you visit in the heart of winter. The two bedroom unit we stayed in has a balcony offering a fantastic view to open up and relax your mind. As tourists who booked with Aurora village, this hotel is a short walk away from their office. Staff... More
