“Love St. John's, Newfoundland!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

Friendliest people in the world live in Newfoundland :-)
and the Ramada is a great place to stay....just outside the downtown area. Near the Avalon Mall shopping Centre and Memorial University. Has a free airport shuttle. It is also on the bus route if you do not have a rental car. We were there to settle my daughter into her university dorm and found the Ramada to be located perfectly for everything. There is also a Starbucks and a Swiss Chalet directly across the street.

Good hotel not far from the St. John's airport. Good value for the money. Room was spacious and clean. Hotel and rooms could use a facelift but overall it was good.

Three lady friends visiting newfoundland for the first time. We had excellent service, the room was more than adequate and the rollaway was one of the best I have ever seen!
The restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
The location is not down town but that was no deterrent for us. We liked having the post office right across the street (although they were locked out the day we left), Walmart just up the road, our car rental agency was down the road one block and a coin laundry a few blocks the other directuion. Getting in to downtown took about 5 minutes.
We liked it so much, that after we finished our tour of Avalon area - we went back to the same hotel!

Originally, we just booked this Ramada for two nights as we were arriving late. However, we soon found the accommodation downtown was much more expensive and subject to the noise of the harbour which can go on into the wee hours of the morning including a 4200 person cruise ship that came in when we were there. As this hotel was close to the mall for essentials, great place for breakfast and convenient to access everything, we just decided to use as our base for the week and it worked out really well. Make sure you have a good city map or GPS regardless of where you stay though as signnage is poor in places and the streets confusing.

Requested to borrow a microwave to make my son some breakfast and after 3 phone calls, it finally came almost 5 hours later. Wasn't informed of the construction going on right outside of the hotel so we lost out on some sleep and with a 2 year old, that wasn't fun. We also had to pay for the week upfront, so we had no option to leave. Booked a room on the main floor because we had so much stuff to bring in with us and ended up on the 3rd floor somehow. We had to lug all our stuff up a huge staircase to get into the hotel and then wait for an elevator that wasn't working properly, so that took forver. The doors in the elevator would just open and shut, open and shut, so you would be standing there waiting for it to stop so you could go. Staff weren't very friendly. One of them couldn't even be bothered to look up from his computer while I was talking to him about a gift shop/store.....which they don't have which was also kinda disappointing. The room was ok and it was cleaned everyday which was the best thing I can say about this hotel.

We stayed here only because we couldn't find anywhere else to stay in the area, but were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. First, the hotel is very clean. It is also extremely quiet- something I came to appreciate after several stays in "louder" accommodations. In addition, the staff were extremely polite and helpful, regardless of the request. Even though the hotel is a bit out of the way of downtown, it is close to several places to dine and a bus route if you'd prefer not to find parking downtown St. John's. Several entrances to the hotel allow for privacy as you come and go. The only downside is the room service which is a bit overpriced. We would definitely stay again.

Last minute booking here as most other hotels booked up so not at all bad for the price. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Room service was a bit slow and a little bit pricey. Good location for a shopping trip to St Johns as the Avalon Mall is just down the road. Perfectly nice place to stay on a stop over in the city.
