“Hometel Number 5”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stayed at No. 5 St Joseph's Lane. It is a two bedroom condo which is great for entertaining. Feels like a home away from home. The Hometel staff are very accomodating and looked after any needs we had.You can even go across the street for breakfast. The location is perfect, very close to downtown restaurants and shops. Also very close to trails and Signal Hill.

As a group of five women this was perfect as we booked three rooms and got a whole townhouse to ourselves. Each room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect as we could walk everywhere we needed to go. Breakfast was simple, muffins, fruit, boiled eggs, yogurt and fresh juice, toast and cereal. There was lots of food and Fresh coffee. If it was nice you could sit outside. All rooms had tv, wifi and free phone calls anywhere in north america. There was also a kitchen where you could make meals and keep drinks etc, although each room had a
Mini bar- which was not outrageously expensive.
I loved the concept, as we often travel in a group and wish there were more hometels in other cities.

This establishment gives you the perfect balance between an expensive hotel and a small room at a B&B. The only thing I did not like was the climb up to the 3rd floor but other than that, it was perfect. Large rooms, full bathrooms (shower and tub), free parking in front of the unit, downtown, and lots of healthy breakfast options. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for the ground floor if you don't want to climb to the 3rd floor for your room. Stairs are...

We arrived at hometel to be greeted by very friendly staff that was most helpful whenever we needed assistance (directions, restaurants etc...). The rooms were very clean and modern. A fresh breakfast was served each morning in a common dining area. We loved being able to chat with other people visiting st. John's and chat about what each of us had done on our vacation. Whatever time we arrived back at hometel there was a friendly staff member at the desk offering to help us out in any way. We had free long distance so we could call home at anytime to our family at no charge to us. We would highly recommend hometel and can't wait to stay there again.

Our plane was late and we arrived about 130am. Our luggage did not make the connection. Asked the young man at the reception desk for a toothbrush kit etc. He said they had been out of them for awhile and did not have any to offer. These are units in town homes. When we went to our town home the entire house was dark. Had to climb two steep large flights of stairs in complete darkness at 2am to get to our room. Then there was a vacuum sitting in front of our door. The room was very small and carpet was terribly stained and dirty. Carpet in hallways also very stained . See pics. No darkening blinds in the room.The a/c unit is behind the curtain/blinds in the window- loud and old and blows right over the bed. So either close the curtains or use the air conditioner?? Choices choices. The biggest problem which I have noted in other reviews as well is that the maid called at 815am to see if we wanted our room cleaned?? huh? Why the heck would you call me at that time of morning to see about cleaning the room?? Went to snack on a can of Pringles and realized someone had opened them and ate 1/2 and them put the lid back on. Walls are very thin. Broken blinds in most common areas. Looks like they have let this place go or something?? Good price($149) and great location in St. Johns. The night clerk was nice enough to bring our luggage at 230am and refuse a tip. Staff nice and helpful. The DSL wi-fi is almost useless at times. Cheers and happy travels.

Room Tip: yeah- stay in a room at another hotel...

Guest took pictrues of stained carpets. We have been replacing carpets in all of our units this year and unfortunatly the unit this guest stayed in did not have carpets replaced. Stains in these pictures are actually bleach stains and not dirt. Carpets are clean but are still in the process of being replaced

I recently got married in St. John's and myself as well as my grooms party stayed there. We rented 2 full houses (which each had individual hotel rooms). We had an absolute blast!!! It was continently located less than a 5 min walk from downtown. The service was great and the houses were cleaned top to bottom everyday

Very pleasant, clean room close to signal hill and downtown. Breakfast was a plus and parking was ample. I would definitely stay here again. The area and other guests were quiet and it felt muhc like having our own place rather than staying in a hotel.
