The room was very clean and comfortable and the self-serve breakfast was quite good. Wifi worked great. All of the staff that we dealt with were friendly and helpful. It's very central and we were able to walk to all of the places that we wanted to see and there's a nice deck out back to unwind with a glass... More

Just spent 3 nights here and found it very respectable. Clean, new build, free NA phone calls, simple but sufficient breakfast and reasonably easy walk to downtown. Could have used some hot eggs at breakfast but just a preference. Recommend. Price before 13% HST and 4 % St. John's tax was $160 which was a bit high. By the way,... More

Check in was quick and efficient, great location for sightseeing. The 2nd floor room was small but contained everything we needed. We regularly used the common room on the 2nd floor to socialize with friends - had a great visit, would return in a heartbeat.

Walls are paper thin. Booking was messed up. Paid for upgraded room and spent first night in a room that was never even intended to hold hotel guests! Location is OK. Wouldn't go back. No restaurant on site.

Noisy on the ground floor right under the stairs. The overhead light is too dim to read by and no lights beside the bed. The chair is for a dinner table so not comfortable reading. Clean. TV accepts HDMI input.

We stayed in Homtel a couple of years ago and found the service very good. We went back over the Christmas period. Using the three bedrooms in the one property we had use of the kitchen,dining room and living room. This enabled us to cook a traditional Christmas lunch. The staff were very helpful in providing any utensils that weren't... More

I've stayed here on business several times and I always enjoy coming back. It's a nice change from your classic hotel - feels a little more like home. The rooms are a little small and I've stayed in comforter beds but by no means uncomfortable. Everything was quiet and I like that there is an area to cook if you... More

We flew to St. John's, stayed right downtown in a character home B+B (so-so experience) and then camped across the province for 8 days. Back in St. John's for two nights after 3,000 km of driving, we chose Hometel mainly because of price, to be honest (St. johns hotels are expensive!). We had medium expectations but were blown away at... More

Based on the room description I've made reservation for the top floor. However when I got there in the middle of the night, I found myself in the 1st floor dungeon. Since they were completely booked they could not give me another room. The bed of dungeon is right underneath the stairwell for the guest on the 2nd and 3rd... More

Stayed there with another couple. Their room was very nice and looked out over the street. Our room was a lower level that was more like a dungeon - couldn't open the curtains - they looked out under some stairs to a neighbor just a few feet away. There is no way the two rooms should cost the same. You... More
