Were we staying for a few days maybe we wouldn't have chosen this spot. But it was a one nighter and we were focused on price. For the price it fit the bill. We walked over to downtown which wasn't unrealistic and actually a nice path. The desk staff were good and helpful. It's not new. It's frayed at the... More

When we checked into the room, there was still food in the fridge, the staff was very unconcerned with the state of the room. The beds were not secure, and because of this, they had to be re-positioned every morning from getting in bed, or from tossing and turning. The a/c was terrible so the room felt humid and stuffy...

Stayed here with friends for three days, two nights. The rooms were plain, but clean. My room had two tv's. One was smaller and was slow in turning on. The plugins were old and one was so loose that the plugs kept falling out. There were several off light switches that let you turn the plugs on and off. Convenient... More

Located in downtown Saint John close to the Saint John river and shopping malls. I didn't get a harbour view but faced the road. The room was decent with a microwave and refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. The price included an ordered breakfast which you can choose from 11 entries. The food was okay but the coffee tasted like water.... More

Stayed while we were in Canada. Checkin was easy, room was clean, rate was reasonable and free breakfast. Best part was dinner at Vegas Restaurant. They close at 10pm and we arrived to eat at 945pm. Shirley was very nice and offered exceptional service, and did not rush us in spite of the time.. Food and drinks were great.

Absolutely horrible service, as we walked out the waitress says"oh are you leaving?" Duh you are too busy talking to your coworkers and playing with your hair... More

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!
