Stay somewhere else
Short review - rather stay at the 2 bigger hotels west of this hotel. Long review - I stayed for 9 nights and with check-in you are told to give them 24 hours notice to do housekeeping service on the room. I asked for it ONCE during the stay and had to practically kick up a stink to get it. Front desk staff (including Cindy the “manager”) just kept saying “only if we can get to it”. If you have a odd numbered room you’ll be facing the main road. The very noisy illegal smokers area is on that side and smoke travels up into your room if you have the windows open (shouldn’t be an issue in the winter with closed windows). People smoke within 3 meters (against city bylaw) of an exit door (one that exists from the very dirty communal laundry room). See photo. I asked about that and Cindy simply said people are not supposed to used that door. Well Cindy, they still use the door despite your “sign” that you put up. This door also slams shut every time and just about shakes the whole building. My room was right on top of it so a big issue. Overall a noisy hotel. Old and hollow. Bed was ok, nothing to write home about though. There is no central air in the rooms and you are stuck using a noisy portable air conditioner if you want. The rooms are quite warm overall. Parking was easy and the hotel in a good location. Yellowknife isn’t big so all hotels are within walking distance to most things. I will DEFINITELY not stay here again. Very poor experience overall.
Smokers corner right below room windows and exit door. Door SLAM shut every time
