Very average hotel, I believe its another Steele Hotel. All of their hotels are getting old now and need some renovations and updating. There is a pool and a restaurant which you can use. Pool is small but good to cool off or occupy children.

Manager very diligent, seems to be everywhere we went, very helpful with directions, suggestions, etc. Felt very comfortable leaving a trailer parked in the parking lot, as manager certainly was keeping eye on...

The condition of the room and the building in general leave much to be desired for this price point (135$/night). To begin as you pull up you will notice that this building looks like an old hospital or possibly some military barracks. The outside is completely covered in steel roofing panels with window mounted A/C units. The A/C units are... More

Clean rooms, and friendly staff. The bed was very comfy. Hotel was close to all amenities in town ! Rooms are modern and a fair size. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was ever so yummy, and the staff there was very welcoming. Will stay here again !!

We had to overnight in Gander and ended up at Gander Hotel. This was our first visit and the stay mediocre. The staff was friendly and helpful but the hotel is older and needs some updating. On entering our room we could smell a strong scent of chlorine, we originally thought it might be due to cleaners but it lingered... More

We stayed at this hotel overnight on our way to Twillingate. The hotel is a bit older, but it is well maintained, nice, and most importantly - it is clean. We had a nice spacious room on the fourth floor, and there's pretty much nothing I could complain about. Wifi was a bit tricky. I assume they have two access... More

This is my second stay at the hotel(annual event) and the place is growing on me. Nothing flashy about the rooms but very suitable for a business trip. What really makes this place is the staff- friendly, helpful and pleasant. Front desk team always had a cheerful hello, and was quick to answer questions or lend a hand. Wifi was... More

If you like 20 year old beds and flat cushions .this is your place to stay.Friendly staff. However this hotel is in dire need of some basic upgrades to make the stay sleep friendly..I hope tourists don't base their experience

This hotel welcomed our tour with cookies and a soft drink, which was nice. They even had our name on the sign outside the hotel's entrance, also a nice touch. The staff seemed pleasant enough, but the rooms need to be updated. Because the rooms looked old, they also had the appearance of being dirty. The casing around the window... More
