The room had a kitchen with a full size fridge, stove and sink stocked with basic necessities to cook and serve. The resturants in Yellowknife are very expensive so this is a very good option if traveling on a budget. The room was clean, bed comfortable, Large area with table & chairs for 4, pull out sofa, chair and desk. Balconey a big plus, great views! Coffee and Tea served in a large clean lobby with friendly empoyees.Contnental breakfast included, very nice and plentiful with extended hours. pay laundry facilities. Staff very helpful and friendly. Parking lot is small and tight. Over all it is not luxury but is a very good value and is in a good location, an easy walk to shopping and entertainment. They do have WIFI but not consistant. Definetly will stay again.
Great place to stay
This hotel is really good value for money. We stayed in a two room apartment that had a kitchen for $200 per night for two people. The place was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the shower great. One thing I really liked was that they supplied large bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash that they obviously refill. Much better than the wasteful small bottles that get opened and then most of it gets thrown away. I love the environmental initiatives. I would be very happy to stay there again.

Excellent customer services
Excellent customer services. Room was very comfy. Splendid experience.
The guest services representatives and other staff members were amazing people with outstanding hospitality personality and outstanding customer services. I will recommend this hotel again and again to anyone looking to spend time in Yellowknife and suburbs without any hesitation.
To the team at the Coast Fraser Hotel, I say “keep up the good work!”
Pretty good overall, except for the internet connection
Overall, this seems to be a pretty good, though somewhat tired, place to stay in Yellowknife, particularly for a longer stay. Do not expect a luxury spot, despite the cost.
Having said that, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the view was great. The kitchen was pretty basic, but there’s enough to get by if you decide to cook, as I did. The continental breakfast was better than I expected, but still basic. The location is fine, easy walking distance to the downtown main street, even in January.
However, if you need to rely on a decent internet connection, be warned. The connection was slow and inconsistent, and usually ended up booting one or all of my devices off, randomly asking me to sign in again after three minutes, or less. For two days in the middle of my six-day stay, the connection effectively died. You would not be able to watch Netflix or YouTube with this connection at its best and remain calm. Fortunately, I was able to count on my phone, which could be pretty annoying depending on you data limits. This is the main reason I’m giving it three stars.
Good overall, nothing fancy, among best option in Yellowknife
We stayed in a king suite. The room was clean an spacious. The kitchenette was useful and had the proper utensils.
We asked for a room higher up with lake view. Got seventh floor without a view due to a mix up. They were helpful and made a change next day and got a 10th floor room.
The breakfast is very basic. Muffins, bagels, yogurt, juice and some cereals. Therr is complimentary tea and coffee all the time in the lobby.
The gym downstairs is basic but good. It has all one needs.
The staff is very friendly.
