Basic but comfortable
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 airport was about $20 including a tip.
Other than a mistake with billing (which was rectified very quickly), I was pleased with my stay.
Perfect place for your visit to Yellowknife!
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.
Very nice Yellowknife hotel
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 being annoying. The one thing that was annoying was the low flow taps in the bathroom – it’s ridiculous to have that with Great Slave Lake a 10 minute walk away. In fairness, I suspect that this is not the hotels fault but some ridiculous regulation that forces them to do this. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from downtown and even in the cold that was not a problem but of course if you have a car it is not an issue at all.

Far from worth it
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 the tub would not drain. All in all there are better places to stay in Yellowknife for less money.
Spacious with great views
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 is mostly friendly and helpful. One off case was a younger staff only providing me with a phone number to call the cab myself when I requested a cab ride scheduled before sunrise. A later attempt with another staff when I returned from my aurora-viewing was a breeze.
Note: If you plan to fly out on the first flight, do not go to the airport too early. I arrived at the airport two hours ahead of time at 4:40 AM and the airport was not open yet while the ambient temperature was way below -20 C….
