“Very Basic Apartment Style Suites.”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

This is a very basic Apartment Style Suite. Our suite is clean but on the older side. Has a kitchen, living room bathroom and 2 bedrooms.

Internet is an Ethernet jack at the front door. So bring a long cable with you. If you want wireless you might want to bring your own router with you. But again you will need a long cable to get from the wall jack to a spot on near power.

We stay in a one bedroom suite for 7 nights. There was all what we need: equipped kitchen, TV, internet, spacious living room, little dining area and spacious bedroom.
The staff was helpful. The location is good. It is near to the dowtown and near to the bus and supermarkets.
The suite was clean but it was very old. We didn't like the old blanket on our bed.
The suite was too hot. It is not air conditioned and the windows are little. And it was not a good idea to open window because we were near to the street. There was too many cars and so the noise was important.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for 2 nights and couldn't fault it. Very comfortable and spacious. They even provided a percolator and ground coffee. On our last morning I asked for a late checkout as my husband had been ill during the night. We got an extension at no extra cost. The cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful - much better than anything we have come across in the UK. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

The Good: (1) Some recent renovations like crown moulding or baseboards and fresh paint help to spruce up this otherwise visibly aged complex, (2) Spacious master bedroom and general living space, (3) Lots of parking and central to the city.

The Bad: (1) NO A/C or fan/cooling unit! Two floor fans are provided but are far from the answer. If staying here during a heat spell – beware of extreme heat! (2) Lots of noises. The floors creek, voices from other units carry, closing of doors are heard, (3) No elevators for those in need.

The Ugly: (1) Dated and dingy upholstery on the sofas and chairs in the main living area, (2) Countertops in kitchen renovated but cupboards still very difficult and ill equipped with cooking/ kitchen gear, (3) Lingering odours.

Room Tip: Anywhere on the top floor so to minimize overhead noise and closing of entrance door on main level.

It is greatto stay somewhere when I am travelling that feels like a home istead of the usual hotel, especially when I am going to be away for more than 2 nights. Each little apt has its own kitchen, little dining area and living room. The rooms are always spotless when I am there and I cannot say enough about how great the staff are. While the place looks like an apt building instead of a traditional hotel, in a way, that is what it serves as! I can walk to Tim Hortons, the Grocery Store, or small restuarants, just by walking out the front door! When you stay here, you are not going to get the boutique experience, because it is not a boutique hotel,, but if you are looking for a little home away form home. or a place to stay with a family that is affordable, then I recommend this place.

Room Tip: I stay here on every trip to St. John's...I prefer to stay in the building where the main office...

Hillview Terrace got us through a difficult time between homes. We had our two large dogs and a cat with us so our options were quite limited.
We were given one of the pet-friendly suites in the basement floor of the building - which is very convenient when with dogs. It was fairly quiet.
The suite itself was not done up as nicely as some of the non-pet-friendly suites but it suited our needs. The 1 bedroom suite only had a double bed which takes some getting used to for two people.
It is a small apartment and we were glad to get into our home but it got us through 3 weeks.

I do not know what the building is made of, you can hear anything in the building, espically in the night. I lived there for a few days and never got a good sleep. Finally, I decided to move to a real hotel. I was happy I made the right decision.
