“close to airport”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This hotel is a short drive to the airport. It seemed quite new. There are restaurants and a store across the street. Our room was on the ground floor next to the lobby. We were concerned that it would be noisy but it was very quiet. The room seemed new and clean. It had a microwave and fridge. The included breakfast was busy, but very good. We sat in an extra room that had tables and chairs to handle any overflow at breakfast.

We have stayed in numerous of places in the St. John's area, and the Super 8 has been our most enjoyable. We will deff. be staying here from now on! The rooms are very spacious (we stayed in a jacuzzi suit), and the bed is to die for. The rooms are also very up to date and modern.
Both front desk and cleaning staff are very friendly and helpful. They made our stay very enjoyable. It felt like a home away from home.
Some extra bonus' are the 80 foot waterslide (we loved this so much!!), and free continental breakfast! They also have free wifi so you can hook up your laptop/tablet.
Over all, our stay was fantastic, and we couldn't ask for a better hotel. We love the Super 8!

Room Tip: Personally love the 4th floor. Their suits are to die for!

Stayed 3 nights in Aug 2012 and had a good time despite the fact that it was more of a family oriented hotel and I was there with my friend on a girl's trip. As we spent most of the day out sight-seeing, not using the pool/hot tub didn't bother us. Breakfast was very nice and more than adequate to get us going first thing in the morning. We also appreciated that breakfast started at 6am (which is an hour earlier than most places) and we were able to grab food before we left for St Pierre. All in all, it was a good experience and we would certainly return when in St John's again.

I've stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions over the past years and they never fail to disappoint. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the staff there are SUPER friendly. It's a home away from home. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!!

My mother and spent 4 nights at this hotel in August 2012. The rooms were quite clean and comfortable. There were a lot of kids there but that's to be expected as they have a pool and an 80 foot waterslide. As a result, we didn't use the pool at all.

The location was ideal for a travelling base. It was a 3 minute drive from the airport and just a few minutes from the Transcanada, and a short drive to the Harbour and Signal Hill.

The breakfast was basic (muffins, toast, bagels, apples, oranges, bananas, juices, tea and coffee). It was great for a quick bite before heading out for the day rather than spend the time and money on a restaurant breakfast.

Beds were very comfortable. We had 2 Queen beds, a table and a few chairs, a microwave and a small fridge. There was an iron, ironing board and hair dryer. There was also sufficient hanging space for clothes although short on hangers.

The reception staff, even though quite young, were an absolute pleasure to deal with and they answered every question I had, even calling around when they didn't know the answer.

For the price, it was just what we were looking for and should we return to St. John's we would definitely book it again.

Room Tip: I hear they have a lot of sports teams stay here. Request a floor where they're not situated.

Our family of four recently stayed at this hotel for five days during our vacation in Newfoundland. The hotel was very clean and quiet . The pool was great for the kids to pass time. We appreciate the friendly staff as well. They seemed very genuine which is very refreshing. I would recommend this hotel for anyone. I dont take the time to write reviews often but I felt this hotel deserved it for their efforts.Also a mention to the front desk staff who went out of his way to help me with a computer issue. I forgot his name but thanks.. I will stay here again.

Great central location near the airport. The kids loved the family suite with the Harry Potter themed bunk bed room - it gave them their own little space. The pool is a great place for them to wind down when not touring. Breakfast is very basic continental, but adequate. One thing to improve would be to expand the breakfast rooms. On busy weekends it is awkward to maneuver and impossible to find a table.
