Decent, clean rooms and good service. A little rough around the edges in some of the facility conditions, but likely your best option for lodging in Inuvik. No restaurant on site, but continental breakfast available. Staff are friendly and helpful.

I was working in Inuvik for the week. This hotel was clean, well kept and helpful staff. I bit out of town but a 10 mns walk from the Legion and post office. 2 mns from the Western Arctic Tourism Centre (still not open - problem due to no staff). Breakfast continental at best, eat at the Mackenzie or pick... More

The Nova Inn...I wanted it to be a much better experience than it was. The Desk Staff (young guy)were friendly and they were pet-friendly and I appreciated that. That was the best part of the experience though. They still have rooms available for smokers,and that's great if you are a smoker, I am not. My room was in the smoking... More

This was our second stay at Inuvik's Nova Inn, one of the newer hotels in this northern town. Northern construction employs a lot of wood and tends to be somewhat less sound proof, allowing you to be aware of your neighbor's TV, for example. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the beds are sumptuously comfortable. An attractive and classy feature... More

Very friendly staff. Our room was very spacious and clean with a fire place to enjoy. The room was very clean. The hotel is very conveniently located and close to everything you might need, restaurants although there aren’t many choices and big grocery store. The parking place outside is gravel and not muddy as I have seen at other places... More

I have stayed in the Nova Inn multiple times. The management and staff have done a complete turn around and are some of the most friendly, helpful, genuine people I have had the pleasure of interacting with. Along with the addition of new faces and an overall positive vibe, the team at the Nova seems to be working hard to... More

Rude front desk staff... we came to the hotel because of the good experience we had for the same hotel company somewhere else. The night front desk lady was HORRIBLE. BAD customer service skills. She could be more friendly. My co-worker and I arrived after a long trip on the North Pole and were very tired. We was treated poorly,... More

Special trip ruined by very poor service. This hotel is under staffed and has inexperienced staff assigned at key arrival times. Only staying one night as a special treat. Check in delayed by over half an hour. Front desk runs by a young boy, and clearly inexperienced after 20 mins in the lobby was asked to share rooms saying one... More

I was in Inuvik for a month on business and I would recumbent Artctic Chalet over this hotel especially if you like a cottage feel or want something to do. There is nothing to do here. If you want some luxury for the same price the Inuvik Capital suites is my second choice.
