This was a great place to stay location wise, but it offered nothing special. The biggest downside was the vacinity of the rooms. It is like a big house and you are renting a room. If you are looking for a hotel room, I must steer you in another direction. Echoing what others have wrote, there is no noise reduction... More

This is the best spot in the city. Easy walk to downtown and up to Signal Hill. I've been coming here for 6 years now and the place is definitely starting to get worn. Breakfast is pretty standard and parking is all right IF you can get a spot in front. Staff is a little unfriendly and acts irritated sometimes... More

After reading Kyo S's review, I hope it wasn't us in the room upstairs!!!! As others have echoed, the biggest issue with these townhouses is noise. There is no way that these buildings started out as hotel units, and therefore there is zero insulation in any of the walls or doors. One is able to hear every word of a... More

Location was good, the bed was quite firm and the room very clean. Seemed like a great setup until... the people staying upstairs moved in. Now in their defense, it had nothing to do with them purposefully being loud and inconsiderate. The problems stemmed from: 1. there is no door that separates the upstairs from the downstairs hallway, the stairway... More

Stayed one night on the second floor of one unit; bright and clean; flat-screen, fridge and coffee maker; no bath, but spacious shower. Judging from my unit, the hotel is a re-furb of townhouses. On my floor was a kitchen and dining area (not in use) and my bedroom, which would have been a den/dining area. Only interior doors with... More

The room was incredibly noisy. We had 2 nights here after being up for 28 hours on our journey there, and again after we spent 3 nights in Bonavista before flying out. We barely got any sleep and the air conditioning units in the room window made it feel like the people laughing and talking loudly on the balcony nearby... More

Originally from St. John's and stayed for 2 nights in June 2013 with a dear group of friends from home for a mini high school and university reunion. We hadn't seen each other in decades and this was an ideal spot for our base to visit our old haunts at home. We were able to rent 2 townhouses with all... More

My second floor room felt like an unfinished, spontaneous renovation project off of someone's dining room. Contrary to information on the web site, there was no fridge or deadbolt. The only room-level security was a cheap, stiff privacy lock on a hollow, interior residential double-hung door (as if the room used to be an office) and a cheap metal chain.... More

The rooms are as pictured on the website and previous reviews reflect our stay as well. The parking was not a big issue for us. If there was not room in the driveway, the lot behind the building is not that far away. We booked this place for one night after getting last minute tickets to a concert in town... More

I had a very serious complaint regarding an issue. I spoke to a manger on the day it happened. I waited two months received no response from the hotel. I sent a written letter via mail explaining my issue. I waited a month more, no response. Failing to even ackowledge an issue is not a good business practice. Also, there... More
