We had to spend an extra night in St John's due to flight cancellation. It was a Saturday and we didn't have arrangements to stay anywhere. There is a new Holiday Inn Express at the airport. That was a convenient option and there was availability. We arrived early but were able to check in right away. Our king sized room... More

We stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in August and had a very relaxing time. The hotel staff was always very helpful and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Even though the weather outside was very hot some days and very chilly other days it was always easy to have the perfect temperature in our room. Oh... More

I tried to rent a house for the weekend that was dirty. Last minute I rented a room at holiday inn. It was great they allowed my dog and the kids had fun on the water slides. My dad accidentally rented a movie and they fixed it on the account right away.

I usually stay downtown but booked late and during George Street Festival. Still a decent location if you are driving with easy access to the airport and local attractions. The hotel may be a little dated, but is clean and comfortable with working air conditioning. Mattress was a bit on the soft side but still acceptable. Air Conditioning worked. Friendly... More

My Family and I stayed for three nights and we found everything clean, tidy, efficient and spacious. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The pool was excellent and the next-door restaurant (east side mario's) was convenient. Excellent accommodations at a great price. Highly recommended for families

I stayed at this hotel on business for one week in late June. Would I consider staying there next time I am in the area? Most definitely. It is hard to find fault with this hotel.

We enjoyed our week at the Holiday Inn. The 2 waterslides were amazing even though the water was cold. Beware though, the floor is very slippery. Kids fell every time we were there even though there are mats. The gym is also good- a small variety of equipment. The location is ideal! It's minutes from the airport and minutes from... More
