For inserts the best thing is using the format YYYYMMDD. So in your case '20161109'.
You don't need the time, do you?

Just to clarify, dates are not stored in a specific format, so the storage answer is you don't convert (so Vitor's answer above works).  

If you wish to display the date in dd-mmm-yy format, then use convert(varchar, your_data_here ,5).   For a handy reference check out SQL Server Date Styles (formats) using CONVERT()

Just add the time to the date separating them with a space. Example: '20161109 11:00PM'.

Best is to use 24-hour clock:

'20161109 23:00'

It's shorter and 100% unambiguous.
