Having never been to Inuvik I had no idea what to expect for hotels in the area. Nova Inn was a huge surprise for me. Great value, fireplace in my room, and everything was very clean. The building looks quite new - 5-10 years old tops. All the staff I spoke with were extremely friendly and helpful. I've stayed in many hotels in major centres at similar rates which have been no where near as good as this.

If I had one gripe it would be about the location as its situated right at the edge of the town. Means a slightly longer walk getting into town if you need to. Having walked back and forth a few times though it isn't really that bad, but other hotels are closer. Then again, the sights you will see along that longer walk are completely worth it! And if you need to take a taxi, its $5 each way. Not the end of the world.

All in all, a great stay! I would not hesitate to stay there again!

I stayed here for 3 weeks on my initial move to Inuvik. The place was excellent. Every room is heated by gas fireplace and they also have free standing air conditioners for the hot days. Rooms are nice and clean. It is on the end of town so you have to walk about 10 minutes to get to town. This has an advantage because it is much quieter as its not on the "bar walk" or skidoo route in winter. Large parking not give the size of the place. If you have a motorcycle they seem ok with putting them under the front roof overhang by the door.

Room Tip: They have kitchinettes also.

After 3 days on the icy, often treacherous and always notoriuos Demster Highway, we reach Inuvik, NT, Canada. We were welcomed by friendly staff into a modest looking lobby, with promises of a warm room, private bathrooms and running water. Once in the rooms we discovered that there were gas fireplaces in each room and they were as clean as the average 4 Star. This was quite un-expected as the majority of the accomodations encountered along the Dempster had mummified moose heads in the lobby and the vast majority did not pass our "Black-light test". In those occasions, we chose to sleep in our truck rather than take the risk of exposure to, well, the likely-hood of a variety of insidious risks. With our expectations low we were more than pleased to wash, eat, play, sleep (and then repeat the last 2 again) in complete comfort with no reason for concern with the exception of imagining both the adventures and terrors of the return trip. Next time we will travel only after the snow is gone and we look forward to our next stay at our "Oasis on the Dempster".

Our private Firth River trip group stayed in at the Nova Inn in Inuvik prior to departing for the river. Our gear was delayed at the Peel River crossing because of a flood and we stayed several more days in Inuvik than originally planned. The staff at the Nova Inn was helpful, patient (with our open -ended itinerary) and always courteous. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There are not a lot of options for places to stay in Inuvik so I was pleased to find that the Nova makes the extra effort to provide guests with a pleasant stay. Derek and Hani are awesome, genuine, and personable. They will not be forgotten. I don't think I can say that about the staff at any other hotel I have stayed in.

We stayed at Nova Inn July 20-22, 2012. We were amazed at the amenities of this full service hotel. Comfortable suite, MW, fridge, AC and a nice complimentary breakfast. The manager Derek Pillay was very courteous. He set up the satellite TV, the air-conditioning and allowed us the use of his computer to access our email accounts. We were on this journey with a vanload of goods from Abbotsford to give to the Lighthouse Church for distribution to the needy. So Nova Inn became an important link in this benevolent venture. Any request we had was graciously granted. Thank you! Bruno Muller.
