Let's start with the bad: wow, is this building ugly. The buildings in the immediate vicinity don't help, either. The view from your room will not be a postcard.
Indoors is another story. The lobby is nice, the breakfast area is very well done (as is breakfast!), the common room is well finished and my room was well appointed. The place is very clean; I found nothing (inside) to complain about.
As mentioned earlier, the continental breakfast is excellent. The usual fare: cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, yogurt, juice, tea, coffee PLUS eggs (different each day), meat (different each day), buttermilk biscuits and fruit.
Their location is excellent. Uptown Saint John is 2 minutes away by car. The reversing falls and the Moosehead Brewery is 2 minutes away in a different direction. They are beside the main highway. If you are vacationing in Saint John proper, this is a good place to stay.
