We spent one night in this hotel on our way up to PEI.

The welcome was very friendly and professional. They don't have a restaurant, but helped us find a chinese restaurant that delivered to our room.

The room was large, clean, with a very comfortable bed, a large TV and an internet connection.

They serve a continental breakfast featuring hot and cold dishes of good quality.

For the price, one of the best hotels I stayed in during our trip.

I booked this hotel after reading reviews on tripadvisor. Hotel was in great location and was near downtown Saint John. Room was nice and bathroom was good. I was suprised with my welcome letter on my first night, they put some chocolates, M&Ms, Crispers and a bottle water for me. This is a first for a Holiday Inn for me. The staff was friendly, only draw back is sometimes front parking is all full and you need to park downstairs which can be a little sketchy because of scrubby bar with some drunks standing around downstairs.

We stayed here for one night with a voucher that was purchased at a charity auction and when we checked in they gave us a free upgrade to a King size room.
The room was beautiful, just recently redone, new furniture. I'm not sure what the other rooms were like but ours was a suite with a separate sitting room and kitchenette. Also we loved the new pillows they have labelled either firm or soft, a very thoughtful touch.
A great place to stay, we now try to stay at Holiday Inn Express whenever we can.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were quick to suggest places to go and provided directions. The room was clean, warm and fresh. There was very little noise from outside which was impressive since it was quite busy in that part of the city. The hotel was close to shopping malls. There wasn't a lot of parking available. The breakfast was quite good, a contenential buffet. The cinnoman roles were delicious.

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.

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.
