When you pay 108$/night for 2 adults / 2 children with a hot breakfast included, you can't expect a 5 star. Although this hotel needs some work and renovation, it was clean and the room was comfortable. The deco was a bit outdated, but I can't see that when I sleep, and I did sleep very well, the beds were... More

Dropped in from a day of touring Maine and NB. They had very friendly staff and nice enough rooms. The hotel is dated and needs some current touch ups. Pool and the routine amenities. The included made to order breakfast is good so you can have your eggs and toast etc. There is 11 different breakfast options to choose from.... More

The room smelled bad. The fixtures and tile appeared to be from the late 1980s, and the bed gave me a terrible back ache. The elevator was "scary." The free breakfast in the morning was nice, though the coffee did smell like wet dog. When we checked out, the attendant at the desk took great pains not to ask us... More

The room smelled like a dead animal by the doors in the room. No batteries in the remote. No menus for room service they simply said "well what do you want?" Two shower temperatures in the evening: freezing cold and cold. Two shower temperatures in the morning: scolding hot for 6 seconds and then freezing cold for 20+ Wifi in... More

I was put up at a hotel from worksafe NB and it couldn't have gone better. They really treat the worksafeNB people like royalty with great freebies and staff that knows what they are doing. Now I know why nearly everyone else at the center stays here. It makes your work at the worksafe center that much easier knowing you... More

Reception very friendly and helpful. Close to market and downtown. Had pool and small gym. Included breakfast. Waitresses very friendly and breakfast was very good. Room not so clean as there was still sticky on the table and the bathroom floor was dirty in corners.

Average quality hotel with OK amenities. The staff was quite pleasant and helpful and the location was fairly close to the downtown area. Room was clean but dated and well used. I wouldn't stay here as a couples or romantic weekend, but we were here for a boys soccer tournament and it fit the bill nicely. Rates were very affordable... More

I'm nearly 50 years old and have traveled extensively. I've never before asked to change rooms. The elevator and hallways smelled and our first room on the 4th floor had a strange odor we couldn't identify. So down we went back to the front desk. The clerk on duty was very nice, very patient and accommodating to the best of... More
