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

Stayed for one night on a stopover. The place is on the highway and pretty dated. Restaurant staff were very friendly. The AC units are the old type set in the windows. The rooms were clean but the hallways and main areas were very run down. Lots of noisy carrying on happening. There is a tiny gym with a treadmill... More

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. Just... More

Wow. I've seen some bad hotels but this one hits you in the face right at the front desk with very rude receptionists. They were going through renovations at time of my stay but room had an extremely bad odor and was very small. There was no AC and bathroom was not clean. I don't like to give bad reviews... More

I'll describe it best as a good motel than a hotel, conveniently located on the highway, a good bar, a very basic gym and pool, food, I'll say above average but not bad, good staff behaviour, cozy rooms. If you're a no frill person go ahead and enjoy the Canada weather in this quaint town
