A reservation error was made. There was obviously a communication error when I had booked. I was charged full price for a room when I was not even in the province. Representative of hotel was unreasonable and rude when trying to dispute the charge to my credit card. Charge was NOT lessened or reimbursed by hotel.

Last stayed here in 2014. The hotel is under renovations. Doing extensive work on the parking lot and siding of the building. Also changed the business area for the better and currently updating the rooms. Now use cards instead of keys. Good start.

We stayed at this hotel for a convention. Our room was freezing cold, due to the air conditioner still been in the window and it was quite airy all around.

No complaints about this hotel. Nothing fancy or special. Rooms were standard. Price was high for the quality of the hotel and for the fact it didn't include breakfast. In our room, the outlet was behind the headboard of the bed that was screwed into the wall so we couldn't plug the lamps above the beds in. No idea why...

Oh my. Only slept here because were were on the highway and had to stop. It likely would have been better to sleep in the car! Everything is old, beds, sheets, bathroom. There is really nothing to say about this hotel except please renovate as soon as you can.

Hotel Gander is being renovated as I write this review. Perhaps things will get better but if the present predicts the future, improvement is not a sure thing. During the renovation, the carpeting in the halls is not being vacuumed, signage about the improvement-status looks like it was prepared by a kindergartner. The rooms look tired and sorely in need...

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...
