My friend and I enjoyed our stay at the Days Inn very much. The staff members especially at the front desk were friendly and helpful. They gave us good advices and suggestions in what to do and where to go. Our room and the hotel in general were clean and pleasant.

I'll start by saying that the staff at the QIS are warm and pleasant, and there is always someone at the front desk to answer questions (even at 4am). The hotel lobby opens into the Centre Square Mall, which is convenient if you need to acquire basic supplies in Winter (winter in Yellowknife gets a capital W). The hotel is also centrally located, so if you're visiting on business, you'll likely be close to your daytime destination.
That being said, the walls of the rooms are pretty thin, so if you're a light sleeper, you'll need earplugs to avoid being woken up by early morning check-outs, the anxious toy poodle in the next room, or 5am snow clearing. The blackout curtains on the windows are great, so I'm guessing you'd have no trouble sleeping in this hotel during the summer.
Quick note: this place used to be called the YK Inn, so if you're asking directions, that's the name locals know it by. "Quality Inn" will get you blank stares from everyone but cabbies.
