Had a restful stay at this hotel. The place was clean, the bed was comfortable. Staff was very pleasant. Food in the restaurant was good. Would be nice if they had had laundry facilities - there are no laundromats in Gander. Very well located off of the TransCanada and across the street from the Aviation Museum. Also close to convenience... More

Front desk and dining room staff were really great- friendly and efficient. The rooms were a bit hard to get to, as there were stairs but no elevator. The bed was too soft for our liking, but everything was clean and as seniors we got a free full breakfast.

we had a suite. it was meh? I hoped there would at least be a pull out couch in the living area so that our kids could sleep there and we could have a bit of privacy...nope! We ended up dragging the mattress off the other queen bed and putting it in there. Beds were really hard and upon settling... More

Overpriced, mediocre hotel that's part of the ring of hotels in Gander. You have no other choice in Gander, so you have to pay through the nose for a place that really should be $90 instead of $150. Hopefully you're here on business, or else stay in Grand Falls-Windsor or Badger.

I stayed at this hotel around 15 years ago when I first started working in Newfoundland. I would say they haven't updated a single thing in this hotel. The beds are hard. The wifi is slower than dial up, so I hot spotted off my phone as it was the only way to get email done. The only redeeming thing... More

There is nothing particularly terrible about this hotel as it's pretty much what you get with any Steeles Hotel outside St John's. It looks like it was decorated in 1983 and little has changed. I found my room which was ground level was quite damp. The dark colours and low ceiling give this place an oppressive feel. The only highlight... More

I had a room there for one night, for $190, plus tax. If I had my time and money back, I would have stayed at the Comfort Inn next door for cheaper, and had a better stay. First off, my room was not ready when we arrived. After waiting an hour, it was still not ready. So, I had to... More

My girlfriends and I stayed here during our trip to Newfoundland. We were not impressed. Besides the friendly and helpful staff, the hotel rooms are small and the ac does/doesn't work (it actually spent the whole night clicking); the halls are small and dingy, and smell like damp and mildew. There was also no fridge in the unit, which given... More

This is very much an average property-no reason not to stay here but nothing to particularly recommend it. Facility was clean , staff friendly (particularly in the dining room), price reasonable and easy access from the parking area. Also the air conditioning worked well and wasn't too noisy on low speed. However the property just doesn't present as well as... More
