I have travelled a lot nationally and internationally for pleasure and work. This one was pretty much the worst ever! I was lucky to get out asap! Even if you are desperate or they give it to you for free, I don't think you would be happy if you are expecting even minimums!!! The welcoming was horrible commenting on my... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! We booked, according to Trip Advisor (they probably wrote their own review, so make sure to read at least 15 reviews). Once we talked to our real estate agent, we tried to cancel.Once we found our new place the day before we were due to land, we emailed but got no response. We also phoned the... More

We stayed a week here and had room 31. It was clean and staff was friendly. Good spot to be able to see the Aurora as lot next door and across street vacant , so not as much in town lights. Easy walking distance to almost everything. Main Street and bus stop only two blocks up, therefore easy access to... More

Ideally located in the downtown, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, and the price is right. The rooms are a little stuffy, so you might want to use the fan or open the door to get a breeze. If I come back to Yellowknife, I will definitely stay here again.

I was looking for a reasonable priced room in Yellowknife and found this hotel on Expedia for $90. It seems the hotel has been completely renovated. Everything is in good shape, it's clean tidy and functional. My room had a kitchenette, which I didn't use but would have been nice for a longer trip. Hotel staff was excellent. They gave... More

The rooms aren't bad. For $135 you would expect more, but its not terrible. The problem is that it is downtown, and there is a lot of careless people here. Very loud people. It's clear that there is shady drug dealing in the motel. I recomend paying a lot more money for a nice hotel. At least you'll be comfortable,... More
