My husband and I stayed at this motel September 16, 2012. We had a nice quiet room on the ground floor which had a nice view of the bay and the city skylight. It was nice to be able to sit outside on a lawn chair and enjoy the warmth of the late afternoon sun and enjoy the scenery. In the morning although you couldn't actually see the sun rise you were able to see the morning glow on the water in the distance. The people were friendly and the room was clean.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this motel, 10-13 July, 2012. We had a room on the first floor which has both an outside and inside entrance. After being on the road for a few days prior to our arrival it was very nice to have an outside entrance with lawn chairs where we could watch the ships come into St John Harbor while drinking coffee in the mornings. Peaceful setting which is lacking in so many other motels on the road. The room was VERY clean and the shower was excellent. We were in the room right across from the breakfast room, which was also very clean and neat. Food was fresh...baked beans on this bar which reminded us of Europe. Delicious selections of breads.
Beds were comfortable. Coffee pot and toiletries were restocked each day. The couple running this little place was very friendly and eager to please. We chose St. John as it's in the middle of the province and easy drive north to Hopewell Rocks and south to St. Andrews and all it's charm. If, by chance, any of you are Harley riders,,, you will find Eldridge HD about half a mile from this hotel. :) We would definitely stay here again.

We arrived at the Motel on Sunday Night of March 18,2012 and was greeted by Bryan at the front desk. He was friendly and very helpful during our stay here, it was a comfortable stay so we booked another night as Bryan was friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. I would say the Econo Lodge at this site was above average in the way they provide service great job Guys.. Will come back again

Room Tip: When you come to this site asked for Bryan and he will make your stay a great experience

We've stayed here in the past, and will probably stay again. The room and the breakfast room were both spotless. There is wifi, a coffee maker, and toiletries, with parking across from the room. Breakfast had the usual items: muffins, english muffins, waffles,toast, bagels, hard boiled eggs, cereals, juices, coffee, tea.... certainly enough to get us stared in the morning. The front desk can sometimes be a bit slow, but always polite and willing to help.

We stayed here two nights on our Canadian adventure. The room was five minutes away from Reversing Falls and was clean and comfortable. We booked an efficiency and the room was quite large.

Excellent for an Econo Lodge.

This is the first Econo Lodge I've ever stayed at so I didn't know what to expect. I had read lots of bad reviews about other Econo Lodges but this one seemed to get great reviews. After staying here, I'm guessing that the good reviews were given because the hotel/motel compared favourably to other Econo Lodges, Super 8s, Motel 6s... and not your average hotel.

The motel looks rundown from the outside and wasn't what I was expecting. There's a funeral home next door and a cemetary across the street with lots of seedy people waiting (for a bus maybe?). The room was large but it was very outdated. I think the microwave had one of the old dial timers rather than the digital displays you see on microwaves made in the last 20 years. The room came with a refrigerator and a kitchen sink. The bathroom seems to have been renovated recently.

There's free parking and free Wi-fi but the Wi-fi was slow and only worked intermittently. They offer a free continental breakfast but it had the poorest selection that I've seen. Our room had an apartment air conditioning unit but it sent in more hot air than cold.

I would stay here again since it wasn't dirty but I was very disappointed since I was expecting so much more.

We stayed one night before taking the ferry to Digby. The hotel is very convenient for the ferry. Our room was quite large and clean, the bed was comfortable and there was a coffee maker in the room. The bathroom had a good shower and was well equipped. We checked in on one level and went down one flight of stairs to our room which had a back door too which opened out to where we could park our car. We found the staff efficient and doing their best to give us good customer service. The breakfast was a nice bonus, muffins, bagels, waffles, toast, juice, coffee etc.
The only drawback is all the construction going on in St John so even with our GPS we kept getting lost so we settled for the pizza restaurant in the little plaza across from the hotel.
