First off, nothing in Yellowknife is inexpensive, but the Polar Suite is probably the best value in town that is not a dive or in a rough location. It is half a block from a supermarket and the main road (Franklin Ave) in town and right downtown. It is an older, converted apartment block, with some residents and some rentals. rooms are definitely dated with a real 80's feel to them, so don't get your hopes too high for a hotel/motel experience. But because it was an apartment, the inside space is huge - living room, bedroom and huge fully equipped kitchen, with random condiments left by previous guests. Think soy sauce, sugar, tea, cooking oil, etc - which may or may not come in handy, but you could easily cook up a Christmas dinner in here! The manager will be in contact with you to give you instructions and how to arrange to get in - remember, as an old apt. block there is no "lobby" to walk into. But it worked without issue. I was able to park my rental car (very tightly) in the back. Judging by the Japanese signage and the condiments, this place is very popular with during the Northern Lights viewing season and the tour buses park just around the corner on Franklin avenue. There is an A & W close by, and the Boston Pizza sports bar 1 or 2 blocks away, which is very well run.

It's a clean, lovely accommodation and big enough for 4 of us. We stayed in comfortable rooms and had great sleep. The location is convenience to go to market (5 min walk) and down town. The host and manager are really nice! Highly recommended to traveler. It's definitely worthy to stay here!

I recommend this place. I was staying for 3 nights with 3 friends. They came up to the airport for giving us a key. All information about there and Yellowknife(including city cab's phone number) were written on a paper. The house was really warm (though it was -25 degree outside) and clean. And full-equipped including oven, microwaves, toast machine and etc. It was just like home. Have 2 single beds and one double sofa bed. The bathroom was also so clean and everything was there! Even a body lotion! Furthermore, a big supermarket(name is independent market...?) is just across a road. It is really close. We were so happy that we do not have to endure the cold weather for grocery.

We had a great stay at Yellowknife Polar Suite, which was equipped with good use of a kitchenette, lounge, bathroom and bedroom. The guest room was only a short walk to the main shops and restaurants. We would recommend this place.

Had a great stay, upstairs neighbours must have a child which was running around and made some noise but not late or anything. Well appointed everything you need and more here. BYOB (blowdryer) if you need it, was glad I had mine. Met the really nice neighbours and they recommend it as a place to live if required long term. Wifi vey good.Nice gym right next door. Would definitely stay again if needed.

It's a spacious, fully furnished apartment with kitchen (with utensils and even seasonings for simple cooking). Right in the center of the city, and a couple of minutes walk from Independent (grocery store). Parking is at the back of the building. Free wifi.

6 nights' stay for two guests. => Good location Despite having a rental car for our transportation needs, we were glad we booked an accommodation that is strategically located. A 2 minutes walk to the supermarket sounded like a better idea than having to warm up the car and "thaw" the steering wheel. A&W restaurant which is located just opposite the guest house is a great place for a quick bite. Walk a bit further (~5mins) for good Japanese food (Sushi north). We popped by to Dettah Ice Road to catch aurora which is about 5 mins drive. Usually tours would venture further to the lakes along Ingraham trail. => Warm & welcoming host We contacted Ricki when we reached and he immediately come by to welcome us. He showed us around the room which comes with a bedroom, a bathroom, a living room and well-stocked kitchen. Pretty spacious for two of us. Good heating system to keep us warm from the bone-chilling cold. Ricki made every effort to make our stay a comfortable one. The only thing that would have made our stay an even better one would be the housekeeping aspect. There is a young friendly Japanese lady that popped by the place during the 4th night only to replace the towels. Would have been good if housekeeping could be more frequent especially when we stayed for a total of 6 nights, to tidy up the place for instance making the bed, emptying the trash.

We went up to Yellowknife to check out the Aurora, meaning we needed a nice place to hole up in during the days and low activity parts of the night. This was a comfortable and quite roomy place for the three of us, close to the supermarket. I'm happy to recommend it to anyone visiting the town.

Nice little apartment centrally located. It is in a quiet neighborhood with grocery store about 1 block away. The visitor center was an easy walk and rents out bicycles for the day. The Old Town section is about a 15 minute walk. Good choice for Yellowknife! Showed up in a search of bed & breakfasts but really isn't. It is an apartment.
