Reviews of this motel have been all over the place. Unfortunately, our experience was not good - our room was absolutely dreadful - two double beds, both horribly uncomfortable - hard as rocks - there were exposed pipes in the ceiling - the bathroom didn't have any outlets - the television was an ancient analog - the bedspreads and curtains...

The family suite we stayed in was not part of the motel. It was very spacious and comfortable. The building was older but rooms were clean and the suite was well equipped - full kitchen, flat screen tv, wifi and best of all, excellent service. The location was very good for the main sights in Saint John and surrounding area.

Our family suite was large and clean wIth nice views. Basically a two bedroom apartment with kitchen and living room. The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Saint John.

Have stayed here several times and will again. The rooms are consistently clean, cozy, the view is very pleasant to wake up to after travelling. Wifi works great too. The owner is very nice. It has been quiet each time I've stayed here. The complimentary coffee and breakfast is fresh and at the ready. I haven't had any bad experience... More

We had booked a double room: 2 beds, and were expecting the usual double beds. Although Mr. Kant had mentioned "efficiency" in his email, I was not expecting more than a fridge and a microwave. To our surprise: he gave us a sunny corner room with 2 queen beds, and it was equipped with EVERYTHING: Large flat screen TV, sink,... More

We stayed for 2 nights in Saint John because of appointments in the hospital. The owner Kent is a really lovely guy and super friendly. The hotel rooms are old but they were extremely clean. We have a lot experience with hotels and it was rarely that clean. The furniture is unfortunately old but everything is done with love. Thank... More

This motel is on its last legs. The best I can say about it was it was inexpensive, comfortable, but small.This would not be my choice another time I'm in Saint John, NB. The owner/operator was friendly and we wish them well

Wow, talk about different experiences. We stayed here four night, 2nd-6th and our room was clean. Everything worked. We enjoyed the balcony in front of our room, especially as it was padlocked so no one was out there to block the great views of the water from two views. The owner was solicitous of our comfort and while we were... More

I don't know what hotel everyone else on here is raving about but this hotel should be torn down. We would have turned around and left, but we got there at 3am after 8 hours on the road with a baby and we were just too tired. As it was, we actually set our alarm for early in the morning... More

The room was as small as we expected as we were informed when reserving the room. It was quiet and fairly clean. The friendly service was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. It needs a little work here and there but very good for the price. I've seen better and worse. 2 1/2 stars for this one.
