Have stayed here a few times for business and must say each time you know what your getting. The staff are friendly. The rooms are standard holiday inn, clean, tidy and quite. There is a restaurant attached with a good selection on the menu.

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

Over priced for an older hotel with out dated carpet, fixtures, and décor. I have stayed in much nicer hotels for a lot less. When we first entered the room there was a bug crawling across one of the beds, the glasses on the table looked as if they hadn't even been rinsed out (gross). Would NOT stay here again.

The giant slides and pool are a highlight for the kids. Meals at East Side Mario where the kids eat free was great! Location is ideal, with everything a 10 minute drive away. Family suite is nice with the kids having their own smaller adjoining room with twin beds. We stayed on the first floor which was convenient as it... More

The staff was awesome. The hotel is dated and costly for the size of the room. Bathroom is tiny and the room was not very big and seemed to be cluttered with the furniture. No mat in the bath tub so it is very easy to slip in the shower, no garbage can in the bathroom. No green bin.

We are regular travellers to NF and, as creatures of habit, tend to stay in the same hotels when in St John's. We have stayed here most years since 2003 for a couple of nights and always find it very comfortable. It is very easy to find from the Airport - just head towards downtown and it is on your... More

Stayed for one night before catching a ferry to Nova Scotia and the hotel is less than 10 mins away. Room is clean and comfortable. However the construction which I was not aware of before booking and the proximity to the highways (ie right next to the hotel ) did prove a tad bothersome.

Dirty, small rooms, not a pleasant stay. People are very nice. But not enough to make up for the old run down hotel. So small I banged my head on the shower rod when I walked into toilet! Will not go back there. Hotels are limited in Saint Johns as they are always busy. Book early and go somewhere else.

This Hotel is very close to the St. John's airport. I passed it many times and have eaten many times at the East side Mario's restaurant attached.
