Very comfortable place to stay. Staff are friendly. Room was a reasonable size and comfortable. Windows open which was helpful in cooling down the room temperature. The on-site restaurant has a good menus for both breakfast and lunch and staff that are friendly and attentive. The location is perfect as it is in the core of the business area, such...

Good overall experience. There are not many choices and the remote location makes things more expensive than normal. Nice room, hot water and a restaurant in the motel made everything easy. WiFi is complementary but only for one device, so you cannot run a tablet or laptop and your phone at the same time unless you pay for Premium service....

I had a tremendous five night stay at the Hotel Arctic, Iqaluit, Nunavut. The hotel is nice and newly updated. The room was generous in size and very clean. I really liked the small kitchenette, complete with fridge, microwave, Keurig and lots of cups, glasses, plates, cutlery, etc. for me to use. The downstairs also had a bar and restaurant,...

Hotel Arctic is a great little hotel. Clean, well kept, with excellent staff. It's easily walkable from the airport (then again, all of Iqaluit is!) but a taxi is helpful in the colder months. Not sure if it still happens, but it used to be that local artists would visit the dining area to show/sell their work too.

When traveling to such a remote place, one would expect accommodations less than what a person would find I a large urban center. However, this is not the case. Check in was fast, and service was great with a very friendly attendant. The rooms was very large, and clean and had all the amenities of a large chain hotel in...

I was here a couple of years ago and wrote a very bad review of this hotel. I must say they have done a good job fixing all the issues. I would like to compliment the management and staff for the great food and service. Last night came in very late 10 pm and they still provided a good meal...

Very close to the airport, but then in Iqaluit everything is close to everything else, I found the place to be comfortable, clean and pleasant. Fairly minimal service. I was told immediately that the free internet was almost useless except for accessing email, so for about $10/day, I bought the "Premium" package. This was adequate but it has to be...

Only stayed here for one night but the hotel was very convenient to the airport and the room is very nice and very clean would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the hotel artic for my last business trip. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were very nice. Tassimo coffee in the room was a nice touch. A big thanks to Maricar for all her help in scheduling my stay. Food in the restaurant downstairs was superb!!
