The beds were so comfortable! The room was spacious and clean. The price was right for what we got. What I didn't like about the hotel is the restaurant. Although the food was fairly good, it was sooooooooo understaffed and we had to wait FOREVER! We were told the bar was closed around an hour before the sign indicated. When... More

We had an unplanned stay at this hotel due to the fact that we missed the ferry by 10 minutes because we were delayed at customs and immigration incomprehensible reasons. The gatekeeper for the ferry directed us to this hotel which we appreciated at night. However when we arrived, the price per room was more than $10 more per night... More

This is an average hotel, with upgrades needed. But the staff were very kind and helpful. Breakfast was very basic and the rooms as minimal as possible, but I was given every consideration by the staff.

Let's be clear:... More

Went for a wedding and stayed for a few days. Ida, our cleaning person, was very helpful and thorough. The hotel is much better now that there are new owners, completely redone. Restaurant was good and the bar had entertainment on the weekend. Seemed very busy as well.

When I booked this place, I did not expect too much; just a place to sleep after a long day of motorcycle riding. We arrived to a nice clean, if not plain, looking motel with a nice view that overlooks the bay and the Newfoundland ferry terminal. Check in was fast and before we new it, we were in our... More

If you book here ask to not be booked near stairwells. The exterior doors slam constantly and even though we were on the second floor we heard it loud and clear all night. It doesn't help that people are obviously rude and don't hold the door back behind them to avoid this. It really not the hotel's fault, it's ignorant... More

We stayed here the evening before we took the ferry to new foundland. Nice view and overlooks the terminal. The hotel was quite busy and when we checked in were upgraded to a room with a king bed for no charge. Room was fine - clean, comfortable. The decor seems to have been recently updated with paneling, so it has... More
