“Comfortable and Classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

A great alternative to the traditional hotel. The room was reasonably priced for what you receive. Bed was comfortable and linens clean. Not alot of room to move around the room as it contains just a bed, dresser and side tables. The breakfast was a couple of doors down at another building and was well stocked and fresh.

This was a great place - clean, elegant, quiet, ample parking, breakfast, nice people and all at a good price. It was also within walking distance of downtown so we walked everywhere. This was a bonus because the diving in St. John's was quite scary and walking was much safer!

The room was small but totally adequate! It was very very clean and modern. I booked online because the website said there was free onsite parking, When we arrived there was no close parking left. We had to park in the lot of the hotel behind the Hometel. It was fine but inconvenient. The breakfast was ok with muffins and juice, but it was just one little kitchen with all the guests bumping into each other and no where to sit. We had a kitchen right next to us in our building, it would have made sense if they had 2 locations that you could go for your breakfast. It's not like anyone was cooking... it was only continental so they could have put it out in another kitchen or two. We ended up having to bring our food back to our room to eat. Otherwise it was a great location. Easy access to downtown shopping and restaurants! The price was great at $99 (plus tax, $114) per night. At that price I would CERTAINLY stay there again and recommend this place to a friend!

A perfect place whether alone or with the family. The congeniality, ambience and comfort were impecable. Brand new and luxurious. The breakfast room is a great place to trade advice on sites to see and places to go. Staff were very helpful with directions and very friendly. Overall my favorite hotel on the Island. Thank You Hometel!

My daughter and I stayed at Hometel Suites for two nights in July.
Fantastic location! We walked to downtown,got screeched at a liquor store,had lunch and this was in the day time!
Hometel was a very nice place to stay. The rooms were sort of tiny we stayed on the first floor . Very clean,compact,with a euorpean flair. Very comfortable bed! The complimentary breakfast was served in the main brownstone down the street from our building. Different, but enjoyable.
Would stay here again.

Oh yeah, Free long distance phone calls. We are from New Jersey!!!

I booked a full house for two clients that were conducting workshops in St. John's. The staff were extremely accommodating during the booking, stay and check out. My guests were very impressed with the location, cleanliness, look and feel of Hometel and asked to be booked there again upon their return to St. John's. It is the ideal place for the business traveler that gives you that little bit extra privacy that hotels are unable to offer. The free phone calls and long distance within Canada along with Internet were also a definite plus!

My stay at Hometel was everything I could have asked for. The cleanliness of the rooms was top notch and the service was outstanding. The price was very comparable to other hotels except for Hometel had a lot more to offer for the money. I had free long distance, free high speed internet access and free breakfast freshly prepared every morning. I liked that it was in walking distance of the downtown St. John's area and that the staff would do whatever they could to ensure our stay was exactly what we wanted. I would stay there in the future and recommend it to friends, family or co-workers traveling.
