Super 8 Yellowknife

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel with helpful staff. The location provides very easy access to Walmart, Tim Hortons, Groceries, and restaurant options. The rooms are clean and well appointed, excellent value for the money. Definitely worth staying here.

Despite having satelite TV, the hotel has decided to go cheap and there is almost no channels authorized. Very annoying as there is not much else to do. Also breakfast buffet is poor.

This is where I always stay when I go to Yellowknife. The card reader at the front door wasn't working and either was the snack machine. There are too many"undesirables" Hanging around the front of the building at night. Otherwise, for Yellowknife, it's my preferred motel.

Room was 28 degrees my entire stay, outside was no more than 15. No air conditioning, no fans, only option I was given from front desk was to open my window. *Heat stroke from excessive heat in room*

My husband's work brought us up to Yellowknife in the hopes that he would be agreeable to accepting a position here as Manager. They booked us into the Super 8 as it was close to the airport and the new work location. The hotel is close to Tim Hortons (like 30 seconds away close...depending on how fast you walk across the parking lot). The Front desk staff always greeted you with a smile and a hello. The housekeeping Staff were amazing as well. My first morning here while my husband was in meetings I came back to my room from yet another Tim's run and the Housekeeping Staff were just getting toy room so I only asked if I could swap out the garbage and that everything else was good. They asked if I was sure or if there was anything I needed (towels etc) and I said that I was good and thanked them. It's nice to know that they are ensuring guests are comfortable. They were super friendly and did a great job of tidying the room, making the beds and refreshing the towels my second day. Thanks guys! Breakfast was plentiful, varied with an assortment of toast, bagels, boiled eggs, juice, fruit and WAFFLES!!! (PS: if you want bacon/sausage and cheese - go to a restaurant and pay for it. The breakfast is complimentary and just wonderful) Oh and the lovely staff member in the breakfast room was helpful and quite funny! On a side note: my husband has agreed to take the position in Yellowknife so this will be my new home in a few months. In the interim - my husband has decided to make Super 8 his home during the transition period. Thank You Super 8 for a job well done and making us feel Welcomed in our new home.

We stayed here for 3 nights for the Aurora. There are nothing to complain about,however, the hotel still could have done some improvement.The hotel provide almost everything:tv,microwave,fridge,safe,iron,kettle,gym, you name it. The breakfast was included, but very basic, no bacon/sausage or cheese. Location is good,close to airport. It is small town anyway, basically close to everything. The building and decor are old,especially the carpet in our room, demaged. Looks ugly.

Hotel was clean. Carpet was dated and I am not a fan of carpeting in hotels.Front desk was fine and check in was simple and quick, many thanks to Andrea at front desk who always greeted us with a smile and answered all our questions. Great person!This hotel was about $12 from all Old Town activites by taxi. Breakfast is bagels, bread, hard eggs, oatmeal, coffee tea, few fruits and yougerts. Decent to get the day started. Tim's is right next door as well as Walmart and Mark's Work Wearhouse. Walmart prices were comparable to Ontario. McDons inside. Walmart does have food and snacks. We carried a 24 of water bk to the hotel. Not far at all. Under 5 mins. It is no Hilton, but were didn't book a Hilton. Served us well, would return for sure! Thanks Super 8! FYI Dominos Pizza, Subway and BMO right close as well. Grocery store is 1 block away.

I booked a pet friendly room in advance as we are moving. I was sick the first night and my entire family was woken up by tourists clomping through the lobby in heavy boots for an hour going out to buses for the Lights. The lobby floor echos ridiculously. It sounded like elephants in our room. I specifically asked at the front desk how to ensure that no one went in our room while we were out so our cat did not get out. They gave me a pet room sign and said they would not go in. The cleaning staff ignored it and went in anyway. I was not impressed and thankfully our cat did not get out. The linens were clean but the continental breakfast is worth skipping and going to Tim's.

Nice clean hotel with comfy bed. Quiet enough location. Had a king suite which is great for the extra space when staying a few nights. Breakfast was just ok but included so we ate there. Is right next to Tim Hortons if you wanted more . Only downside would be the location if you didn't have a car. We rented so were fine but would be too far to walk to downtown/old town from there. Very cold so take lots of warm layers. Good option for a Yellowknife stay.

This hotel is the perfect location . Tim Hortons is right next door and Walmart and Marks Workwarehouse is just across the parking lot .
