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

Good location, walking distance to all downtown, but then so is every other hotel in town. Room 2001. Noisy, dirty, mold around shower and bath, poorly maintained, towel racks and door hook in bathroom missing, daily cleaning inconsistent with some garbage pails emptied others not. Coffee maker not emptied, towel sets not replaced completely, no face cloths day 2 no... More

I have stayed at Hometel numerous times since it's opening. The entire concept is a bit different as it is not a hotel but a row townhouse/brownstone in which you rent a room with an ensuite but share the use of a kitchen and living room with anyone else who may be renting the second and/or third room in the...

Beware this is a wooden structure townhouse!!! You will hear everything during the night. People coming and going at 1:00 am, 3:00 am, 5:00 am and 7:30 am when breakfast is available. Sleep was impossible. Spent the night sweltering in humidity. We inquired why the remote for the air conditioning was missing. The response was, they hide the remotes behind... More

I think the building was intended to be townhouses; not a hotel. That can be problematic, I suppose. Several reviewers mentioned noise as a problem; that, didn't deter me because I am a sound sleeper. Yes, I could hear the clomping of people going up and down stairs and in the rooms above me; but, that was like maybe 3... More

We got a great room (clean, well appointed) at a really reasonable (off-season) price in a convenient downtown location. The staff is great and the breakfast (with the room) was one of the better continental breakfasts (it had protein in the form of boiled eggs, a selection of yoghurts and cereals along with the usual). Further, the staff didn't mind... More
