I stayed at this hotel February 7th as I was in town for a hospital procedure. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. I had a great view of the city from room 504! The room had two double beds, a bar fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Although the room could have used a bit of a facelift,... More

I recently stayed at Howard Johnsons in Saint John and had a great time! The front desk staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the city. The room had a FANTASTIC view of the harbour! We ate several times at the Vegas Bar in the building. A full breakfast was included with the room and we found the atmosphere great with... More

We went to St John in Oct 2015 or shopping. We stayed at Ho Jo. on Portland Street. Room was excellent and clean with a great view of the harbour. Excellent service at the restaurant also and price of meal was second to none. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 10 days before our move away from Saint John. This is a hotel that is very popular with sports teams coming in for tournaments, so the weekends were a bit on the loud side, but otherwise we had a really nice stay. The rooms are basic hotel rooms, we had two double beds in our room,... More

I was completely disgusted! I found cigarette ashes in a "Clean" coffee mug in my room. An hour later I passed by a room that was being "cleaned" by the maid, I stood outside the open door to the room and watched her take the same rag she used for dusting and wipe the inside of a coffee mug then...

Over the past three years, I have hosted and delivered professional training events at this hotel. This venue provided me with many convenient options, such as the various sizes of available rooms, supportive equipment, storage, catered refreshment breaks, and lunch/ dining possibilities -- all for an affordable price. During this time, I was always incredibly impressed by the level of... More

I'll start by saying that the staff at this hotel is top notch. (Minus one waitress that made us feel like she was doing us a favor by waiting on us) The rest were fantastic and kind and incredibly accommodating, given we took over their hotel with 3+ hockey teams for an entire weekend. I never once felt like our... More
