Yellowknife has a small selection of hotels and likely more demand than supply in the way of hotel rooms, so the room rates are quite high, even for older and dated hotels. My picks represent the best value I could find in my analysis of room rates, freebies, location and amenities.

Popular all-suite Yellowknife hotel with full kitchens, private balconies and free breakfast
The Coast Fraser Tower is your best bet for a good experience and pleasing accommodation in Yellowknife. It's well-reviewed by guests online and conveniently located about a 2-minute drive to the downtown core, and only 9 minutes to the airport.

The Fireside Lounge serves dinner on-site and some nearby dining choices are Thornton's Wine & Tapa Room which is a 4-minute walk away, and A Taste of Saigon and Boston Pizza, which are both reachable within a 3-minute drive.

Former guests liked their nicely decorated and fully-furnished condo-style suites featuring private balconies with city and lake views, some offering views of the Northern Lights and Dettah Ice Road.

There’s a 24-hr fully-equipped fitness facility and steam room on site and guests will appreciate the added freebies: Wi-Fi, basic continental breakfast, parking with cold-weather plug-ins, coffee in the lobby all day, and local calls.

Clean, quiet and comfortable rooms, mini-fridge, microwave, walk to dine and shop
The Super 8 Motel is a good budget hotel with very good ratings in Yellowknife, although still quite highly priced. Free Wi-Fi, continental breakfast, local calling and parking with block heater plug ins help to bring the price down and increase value.

Guests can access the city centre in a 5-minute drive and the airport in 9 minutes. There's some restaurants close by, all less than a 5-minute walk, including Diamante and Domino's Pizza, Pizza Hut, and McDonald's. Shopping at Walmart is reachable in 4 minutes on foot from the hotel. Guests were pleased with the customer service, the breakfast selection, their clean, quiet and comfortable rooms, decent TV channels and comfortable beds.

Rooms are smoke-free, climate controlled and feature mini-fridges and microwaves along with the usual room amenities. For added value the hotel offers a fitness centre, a business centre and guest laundry.
