Nice view of the harbour. Clean rooms. Delicious complimentary hot breakfast "made to order". Older building which fits in well with the city. Everything runs well. We spent three nights there and would stay again if we visit the city in the future.

Adequate on all fronts. All to be expected at price in comparison to higher rated hotels like the Hilton. Comfortable, clean, service was decent, restaurant was ok. Breakfast was definitely better than dinner. Location is great, everything worth seeing is walkable. All in all a decent stay!

I've stayed here a few times while visiting Saint John. The prices are very reasonable especially for when you're staying for a little longer then a night or 2. Staff is friendly and helpful, its centrally located to all the main attractions, and the complimentary breakfast is the best part. Plus their 50's style diner is also open for lunch... More

The staff was super friendly on my family's 5 day stay and not to mention the delicious breakfast at Vegas. The room was exactly what we were expecting for a three star hotel. And great location from downtown Saint John and the harbour. Not to far away from rock wood park. Definitely will stay here again

The staff were kind of ok. The room was big and somewhat clean. The 50s-style restaurant is really good, definitely recommend. Breakfast was great too. Hottub had brown water but was later refilled with clean water, the pool is a bit green.

It ain't a bad place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food at the 50's Americana diner downstairs is ok. The room itself was adequate. It had a fridge and a microwave and was very clean, if not a bit old and dreary. On the whole, this is just a passing way point and I had no... More

When we stopped in for a night they only had 1 room left, which was a smoking room. We took it in case. When we got to the 8th floor it wasn't a good smell... When we got to our room my throat was burning so we went back down to get our money back or try something. There was... More

I booked a room for three nights for myself and my husband (he is 72). I requested ground floor. While I realize that that is not always possible I did not have a problem with third floor. Come to find out we could take an elevator to third floor however there was a set of steps that we had to... More

Although we did have some issues with our room, they were quickly solved. We were upgraded from a room with 2 Queen Beds to a studio because they had made an error. They were very patient and understanding. We were travelling in a big group. We had stayed for the "I am the Voice". We had about 6-7 preteens with... More
