Super 8 Yellowknife
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Yellowknife
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I travel on business to Yellowknife frequently and have stayed at all of the hotels at one time or another. There is a reason i continue to go back to the Super8 - the staff are very friendly and helpful, the beds are comfortable, and they do all they can to accomodate requests. The microwave and fridge in each room allows a travellor to heatup things in the room itself as going out for dinner can get tiring after awhile.

Over the past couple of years, I have spent numerous nights at Super 8, Yellowknife, and I have yet to have a bad experience. While working in the North, with a cross-country commute can have its challenges, I have absolutely NEVER been treated anything less than special at the Super 8.
As part of the Logistics Team at Sabina Gold and Silver, we arranged more than 250 bookings in 2011, with a significant number of those involving multiple nights, and I have yet to hear a negative comment regarding the staff at Super 8.

They have bent over backwards on many occasions to accomodate us, with cancellled flights in to camp - sometimes checking out and back in within the hour. For such an accommodating, and flexible group, one might expect an anything goes approach. Not this group. They are consummate professionals.

From the night staff at the counter, to the folks that prepare and clean my room, to the General Manager - they are an awesome crowd!

We could never do what we do without their support.

Wayne, it's a pleasure every year when Sabina Gold & Silver Corp resumes their mining operations in the North and we again have the opportunity to serve those needs. We look forward to a long and successful relationship again this year and for many years to come. Thank you for your kind words.

I stayed at the Super 8 Yellowknife for 6 days for work related purposes in January of 2012. I will be honest and state my work usually booked me into a different hotel during my stays in Yellowknife. Unfortunately my regular hotel was booked and could not accommodate me. However, after staying at the Super 8 for 6 nights I can gladly say I would return, and likely will return in the near future. The staff at the front desk were amazing. They were very nice people and were always willing to help out with any concerns or questions I had. In addition the rooms were the cleanest I have seen in a very long time and I travel quite regularly for work in and around the north. The prices are pretty on par with everything else in the north and the location is amazing if you like to shop and get away from the downtown core of Yellowknife. All in all it was a great stay and I will be recommending it to my friends and colleagues.

I too found some staff to be uninterested however other staff where accomodating. Room was comfy and had good sleep. The breakfast is average super 8. However it is annoying that the business centre is not 24 hours however it is open till midnight. The location is good as it is near Walmart , extra foods, and some other stores and restaurants.

This hotel is just OKAY: the rates are reasonable, the rooms are clean and comfortable. BUT it seems like no-one really enjoys working at this hotel. There are not many smiles, no laughter, no conversing with the guests. The overall atmosphere is "dead" .. like people are just going through the motions .. busy doing their jobs .. but forgetting that they are in the hospitality industry and the guest is important.
Coming to Yellowknife to do business, maybe this is not important to you .. maybe you just want a place to stay that is reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. Personally, I feel the atmosphere of the place I stay is very important.
This hotel reservation was made for me by my company .. if I had a choice of where to stay, I wouldn't stay here. If I ran this Super 8, I would do something to boost my staff's morale. This is what will get customers to return again and again.

Front Desk people were rude including the manager. We stayed for 5 days and 2 days they didn't give us enough towels or make our beds. The fitness room had two treadmills and an elliptical and both treadmills didn't work.

If I went to Yellowknife again I would never stay at the Super 8.
