Although the hotel looks fairly modest from the outside, the rooms inside are anything but modest. I have stayed in many hotels in my time and this ranks up there as being one of the best. It was clean and modern and the bed was very, very comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are making a visit to Saint John.

Very good stay there.

Very very good free breakfast in the morning

Confortable rooms.

Spas and pool.

This is near all.

Free internet

Beyond what I was expecting for the price

but this is a little noisy place (firestation and rails)

Stopped here unexpectedly on a rainy night passing through Saint John. No reservation. Got a room with two double beds, microwave and fridge for $109. Spacious and spotless. Staff were friendly. Lovely lobby with large (free) breakfast area. Beds and linens above average. Very comfortable and quiet.. Might rate as excellent in its price range. Will stay here again. Definitely recommend.

When we arrived at the reception area the desk clerk immediately upgraded our room from 2 doubles to 2 queens because we requested a refrigerator. The room was spotless and appeared almost new. I think this hotel deserves something higher than a 2 star rating. Book online. The price is much cheaper.

This was an interesting hotel.We stayed in the kids suite with a ' bug' theme.Our kids were a little old to fully appreciate it but the advantage of this was a separate room with bunks for the youngsters.The playstation was a good touch - you can borrow games from reception free of charge.If you have little children they will probably really like the theme.The parents room is smaller than an average room and does not have its own window but it's fine for a couple of nights.There is a large pool and jacuzzi and the breakfast is good.It's a convenient hotel

I had the opportunity to enjoy the Holiday Inn Express in St. John, New Brunswick for the last two nights of an 8-day Nova Scotia tour. My group of 39 all felt that this hotel offered the nicest room of the four hotels we used. The lobby is expansive and features a TV lounge and small dining room that is used for breakfast every morning. The elevators are prompt and efficient and the hotel sports a terrific indoor pool and hot tub.

Rooms are large and very well appointed. I was assigned a corner room with a queen bed, sofa and easy chair, desk, and entertainment center/chest of drawers...the decor was cosmopolitan and somewhat chic with decorative objects that helped make it feel a little like home. Lamps were made to look like iron balustrades, shades were silk, marbled wallcovering, nice plush carpet and elaborately framed mirrors. Room was spotlessly clean and the decor was overall quite smart. In addition there were 62 TV stations...more than the average...

Amenities included refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, iron, blow drier...good lighting, large bath with fluffy towels...excellent hot water and water pressure...and...a small jar of hard candies on the desk...Air conditioning worked well and front desk was fast and efficient...

Breakfast is good...assorted baked goods, bagels, toast...hard-boiled eggs, frozen pancakes that go in the toaster, and yogurt, fruit, etc....there is also a nice harborside walk across from the back entrance where you can stroll down to water's edge...view from hotel is spectacular...I could see both the city and the waterfront from my room. Drawback: hotel was about a ten minute walk from downtown...not a terrible distance, but too much for those tired from a day's outings...Also, there is no restaurant in the hotel for dinner and no bar...the bar next door is not suitable for well-heeled patrons.

My husband, daughter and I went to Saint John, NB, in order to see my other daughter compete in a sports event. We booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express, while my other daughter had to stay in the Fort Howe with her sports team. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean and classy our room was. I am very particular about cleanliness, and this room more than met my expectations. The linens are pristine, all white, and the pillows numerous and marked "soft" or "firm" so you can choose whichever you prefer. The bathroom is well stocked with toiletries and fresh towels. My husband had booked the room on line and when we arrived, the hotel attendant refunded part of his payment stating "you didn't get our best rate". The attendant had a photo album full of room pictures so we were able to pick which room we wanted! The free breakfast was more than adequate in a good-sized room (the guests are not crammed in). After hearing numerous horror stories about the Fort Howe, I was so relieved we booked in the right place. Highly recommend this place to all travelers!
