    The room was clean but needs some painting. Decor needs to be updated. The rooms are due for a good makeover and the bathroom to be upgraded. Good room services. Nice beds. The staff is welcoming and helpful.

    Located a short walk into central Yellowknife. Good rooms and nice restaurant offer good range of local foods. Was even able to walk to Snowking festival located on the frozen lake. Not a lot to see in Yellowknife so only stayed a few days.
