We stayed here for 4 days in the summer. The rooms were clean; the staff friendly. It had reasonably fast free wifi. We got breakfast of sorts with the room: toast or bagel cereal, OJ and coffee. The cereal is basically out there all the time so eat when you want. You have to walk to town center (or the...

The good experience started when I got off of my motorcycle after 500 miles of gravel and met the desk clerk. He set me up with a great rate on an excellent room, which I did not expect. He went on to point me towards Alestine's restaurant, on of the better eating experiences of my trip. He also filled me...

What can you say? After spending hours on the Dempster Highway, arriving to Inuvik and checking into the Nova Inn is like finding an oasis in the desert. It isn't a terrible hotel and I would argue that it competes with any discount hotel chain normally found in more populated places such as Super 8 or Days Inn. I have...

Pleasant reception staff, good air conditioning, comfortable beds, continental breakfast - basic needs met. A good, healthy walk to town (perhaps 2km) so the location might not suit everyone. No in-house restaurant thus a walk or drive is required to head out for dinner. Our shower curtain rod didn't work well and it was repaired within hours. The Nova is...

I realize that this is a remote area, but this place is well built, has spacious rooms, but lacks maintenance We accepted a room with a broken lock because it was the only clean one they had. This meant having a staff member open the door each time. After check in it became difficult getting back in room and one...

Although this hotel was booked as part of a tour, so I didn't have a choice (as to my accommodation), I was more than pleasantly surprised as to the quality of the hotel. The rooms were great and really, all you need when you travel is a good shower and a comfy bed! When I had any issues all I...

Okay, I'll be honest, I though a hotel in Inuvik would be a shack, but this hotel was great. We all got single rooms after a couple of days of rough camping, so a roof over our head would have sufficed, but we were all pleasantly surprised by the luxury of this hotel. Great shower, very comfy bed, close to...

Just came back from Inuvik and must say I never expected such a wonderful, very clean, friendly hotel! Equivalent to any I've stayed at in Seattle or Vancouver for so much more. Decent price, all the niceties in the bathroom, the a/c which cooled down the room quickly. Excellent instructions on how to operate it in your hotel book! The...

I recently stayed at the Nova Inn Inuvik for business. The hotel has excellent service, and the front desk folks especially friendly and accomodating. WiFi worked great during my stay, hotel has A/C for the hot days, and a nice fireplace for the cold days. Continental breakfast was also nice, walk to downtown is about 10 to 20 minutes depending...
