We rented this hotel because the highlight was the pool. Well, it had a dirt ring surrounding it, disgusting. The beds in the room were comfortable, I'll give them that; and the morning breakfast for $6 was favorable. Hotel furniture had chips in it (damaged) so update is needed in many areas. There are signs saying they are renovating but... More

Needed a room and all other hotels had no vacancy. This hotel had rooms available and can understand why. Room was not worth the price. There was no lighting. Had to get a bulb sent up and the fixtures plugged into outlet which was behind the bed. When the worker pulled out the night stand and bed to plug it... More

There are renovating and we knew about it but they have a pool and the kids love pools. The room was comfortable and pretty clean. It may be somewhat outdated but they were improving and it didn't bother our stay at all. The pool area was hot and the water cold but you get used to it. Good air conditioning... More

I just finished a 2 night at the Hotel Gander with my wife and daughter, and we were very pleased with the stay. All of the staff were wonderful, the restaurant staff were amazing, and the food was great. The rooms were a bit dated, but that's why it's getting renovated. The room was clean and tidy, and very well... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed at Hotel Gander on the last night of our vacation on our way back home.

Very disappointed! When booking we were told we can check in at 2 p.m., we arrived at Gander around 1 after a 4 hour drive. As soon as we arrived the room wasn't ready so the male on the desk told us he would call us when ready, he never called. We went back multiple times and still wasn't cleaned.... More

The staff were friendly. The room on the 4th floor was quite acceptable and will be even better when renovations are completed. We only stayed one night and so did not have any opportunity to try out the pool or dining room.

HOTEL GANDER -- I stayed at this hotel four days and nights. Very comfortable room. All the hotel staff members were courteous and respectful at all times. Hotel is very easy to find off the Trans Canada Highway. I would recommend this hotel to any persons or families traveling through Gander, Newfoundland

I understand the hotel is under renovations, however by the looks of things they probably should have happened 20 years ago. The place is a mess but I could forgive that if the whole place just didn't feel dirty and run down. The staff weren't overly friendly and there's no A/C in the room which has zero air circulation.
