Three of us shared a room for four nights, and it was fine, and inexpensive. It was tidy and clean, though certainly not fancy or new. The room had free wifi, tv, fridge, tea kettle, microwave and an AC unit. I believe not all the rooms are equipped the same, so check it out when booking. Belle was helpful, fair,... More

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

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.

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
