I was fully satisfied with my stay and it is certainly a cut above most of the hotels I have stayed in anywhere in NA in that price range. Excellent value for money.

We had an unexpected stay when we couldn't take off due to a blizzard anymore... Staff were friendly and when there were repeated power outages they provided free coffee, soup, cereals etc. There is a good restaurant/bar within the hotel, so it is convenient to have a drink. Pizza's are quite good. I would have wished for a sauna or... More

Stayed here for work. Rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. The East Side Marios restaurant provided a standard breakfast menu or a buffet - it was OK. The "gym" consisted on an old Universal gym, a bike and a couple of ellipticals - nothing to write home about. The pool was outdoor and was closed for the season.... More

We recently spent three nights at this hotel. Our room was on the first floor and my overall impression was okay - the room was dated, however it was clean and spacious. The bathroom set up was rather quirky with the shower and toilet in one spot - the sink was across a little entryway in the closet. Yup, the... More

The room was clean and affordable. Wish the pool was not outdoors, only able to use it 2 days out of 7 as the weather hardly ever cooperates in St. John's. Ideal location for shopping and attractions though; center city.
