3/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Good location, get what you pay for

The overall stay was good in terms of location. However, property was really old, no elevator (we had lots of heavy luggage to carry up the stairs) and there was the smell of smoking (even though we were staying in a smoke free room). The concierge was really nice and helpful.

5/5 Excellent

Most stellar hotel staff ever!

Great value for the location, clean, and the most stellar hotel staff ever! They treated us like family and went out of their way helping us with tour advice and aurora sighting. The hotel staff were very knowledgeable with aurora activities and went above and beyond to make sure that we don't miss the aurora sighting. We were so grateful for their kindness and warmth. So if you plan to go to YK, definitely sticking with the Discovery Inn people, they take great care of their guests and does everything to maximize your chances to see aurora.

Hotel close to shops

The hotel was ok. No elevator and the room was clean. There's a restaurant connected to the hotel and the parking area was perfect.

3/5

lift please

non-smoking rooms on the 3rd floor-no elevator-tough for checking in etc. Also towels were thread bare. Think this hotel is best for the under 30 crowd. We were there for the Auroras

Pros: location. Staff helpful when asked

Cons: towels, elevator

Location: close to Aurora Village office, visitors center, museum, grocery store. If weather cooperates, old town is a nice walk
