Stayed 3 nights on business in Fredericton. This place is great ! It has clean rooms and is quiet. The WIFI works great, I drive right up to my room, and the restaurant is friendly and inexpensive. It has everything you need without the frills. ( I don't like duvets or a dozen pillows anyway) Great job for a very... More

Good day Azhar. Thank you for choosing Prospect Inn on your business trip and I appreciate you taking the time to review your stay. I am the first to admit that we are an old-fashioned hotel with old fashioned prices and service. I chose not to keep up with the Joneses in upgrading to fancy duvets and too many pillows... More

I was in Fredericton NB visiting friends early February and again stayed at the Prospect Inn. I had a such a great experience my last visit that I decided to stay there again. I was not disappointed. When I got there the Manager Norm greeted me as an old friend. I was surprised he remembered me being a guest there... More

We stayed at this Inn twice on our recent short trip to New Brunswick and Maine. Arriving for our first night, we found the manager Norm, right and ready to serve us with his friendly attitude. He wrote up our bill with the promised price since I had booked over the phone. The room was ready for us on the... More

Was disappointed with the hotel. Had read reviews and viewed photos online before booking however the room we were given did not meet what I was expecting. The paint was peeling in both the room and the bathroom. The bathroom door worked duel duty for both the closet and the bathroom, lol. The air conditioner looked unstable. Door to outside... More

I appreciate your comments about your experience here. While I would love to have glowing recommendations all the time, I realize we always have room for improvement. This hotel is as old as I am and therefore needs continuous upgrading. I understand that what is okay for some people is not satisfactory for others, and I always happily allow a... More

Stayed there for 5 nights during the Fredericton Exhibition. Norm (General Manager) was fantastic. He booked me in to a clean, quiet room. After long days working at the Exhibition, it was just what I needed. I highly recommend this place if you need a clean, quiet place to stay without breaking the bank. Thanks again, Norm. Will definitely stay... More

I live on-site and am over 50 years old and I enjoy a quiet place myself so I ensure peace and quiet for all guests. I realize travellers have... More

A decent place, a bit outside town but not too far. Rooms look like they were recently updated, but oddly. They allow dogs which is a plus, with some rooms on the ground floor that open to the outside world. The odd thing was that my room was one of those, with another door that lead to the hallway inside,... More

Good day to you. I appreciate your review and thank you for the good comments. I am happy you described it as acceptable. I do not pretend to be a full-service ritzy hotel so your description was great. We are a basic roadside motel with 20 drive-up rooms and 30 others with balconies.

We stayed for one night at the Prospect Inn. The Hotel offered the best price by far (we stayed during the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival, so other hotels were rather expensive). The room offered simple facilities, was very clean and nice to stay in. The manager was really nice and helpful and made sure we had a great experience... More

We stayed in this motel for one night as we traveled back from Nova Scotia. The price is right for the level of comfort you get. Manager Norm is very helpful and friendly. I think he is the best asset of this motel. The motel is right next to the highway and window insulation is not that good so you... More
