Stayed only one night in Yellowknife. The Explorer came recommended to us and we were not disappointed. It was clean and well appointed and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and the restaurant was great. I doubt you will do better in Yellowknife.

We will always choose the Explorer if it continues in the mode it has historically. There is nothing I could say that would detract from any stay there. We have been there 3 times now and so appreciate it.
