The hotel is located quite close to downtown, with a view of the harbour. You can watch cruise ships coming in and out. Lots of parking and within walking distance to many amenities: fast food, bank, Tim Hortons. Excellent free breakfast - and the eggs don't taste fake. Great value for the money. Will definitely stay here again.

This HIE is in the process of renovation but what has been completed is quite lovely. The rooms are very clean and spacious - we were lucky to have a view of the harbor and saw the cruise ships docked there. We did have a problem with our toilet the first night of our stay but maintenance was quick to... More

Where we booked this hotel it was called Holiday Inn Harbour View, but the view has the freeways running across and just isn't very nice. We always stay at IHG properties and didn't book for the view, so it was fine. The rooms were nice and clean. The lobby was being renovated, but was surprisingly clean considering the work being...

Easy to find & handicapped accessible, this hotel seems brand new; very clean, full buffet breakfast, indoor pool, just about everything a family could need. All the employees we encountered were super friendly & very helpful. I loved the embroidered pillow cases identifying firm or soft pillows!

Stayed for one night while attending a wedding near St. John. Hotel is under renovations but didn't affect our stay at all. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast was good lots to choose from. Would stay again if in the area.

We stayed here for one night as a mini Saint John/New River Beach getaway. This hotel offers good value for money, with competitive rates, free parking and great (free) breakfast offerings. We elected to stay in the jungle-themed kids' suite, which my 3 year old loved. The bunkbeds in a separate section are a great option for little ones. The... More

We felt welcomed at this facility and loved the pool and hot tub. Evening popcorn was a hit with the kids. We enjoyed the walking path to Market Square at this time of year - about 15 minutes. Breakfast was the standard Holiday Express fare. This was a good stop off on our way to Saint Andrews for whale watching.

I was a bit disappointed with this HIE - it was not up to the level of expectations. It is our experience that often the HIE is just off a major highway (in this case, I95) thereby being very convenient - our reason for the choice. This was not visible from I95 and required GPS to find. To be fair,... More

It was clean, comfortable and in a good location. It is very easy to access the highway but was still quiet. (I am a pretty light sleeper.) The staff were really friendly too. Would definitely stay here again.
