“Great location, people”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I'm currently a 'Resident" at the hotel while on long term assignment in St. John's. There are other chains that offer more room but they are not downtown. It's a 10 minute walk downtown but a bit longer coming back because of the hill. If you drive it will take you longer to park than to get there. It may be just me, but if I have to get in the car and drive 20 minutes I'm much less likely to go.

The rooms are well appointed and beding is nearly new so matresses and pillows are firm and comfortable. A two burner range and undercounter fridge are provided. Cook space is a little cramped but workable.

People are great, helpful, friendly. Breakfast is served every day and the bagels and muffins are fresh and a cut above the usual. Coffee is good. Coffee-mate is a disappointment.

Downsides - Air conditioners are large in the room devices. Mine chugs and rattles so that whatever you put on top ends up on the floor. Parking is limited. If the hotel is full and you return after 7 PM you may end up on the street.

All considered a very good place to stay.

Room Tip: You want to be on the front to watch sunrise over Signal Hill.

I stayed here alone for two nights. My room was on the second floor, reasonbly large, clean room with kitchenette. Complimentary breakfast included in stay which was nice. Cereal, bagels, toast that sort of stuff. Wifi in the room. If your staying in St. John's and want to be reasonbly close to downtown and would like to save money by cooking a few meals this would be a hotel to consider. Only beef was the limited parking, get there early or park on the grass!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper levels, my friend was in the basement and paided the same as me. Wasn...

We stayed here for a week and could not fault this hotel.Our room on the third floor was large and clean with a handy kitchen area.Our daily maid and reception gave an excellent service.The complementary breakfast although limited was adequate. We were collected from the airport and taken back even on a Sunday.We did not have any problem with the walk into town and back and the location was very quiet ,set back from the road.We had a great stay in St Johns and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.It was great value for money.

Room Tip: A top floor room will avoid any noise from overhead

I booked the hotel almost a month in advance but needed up in the basement. There is an elevator, however you know that you are staying in the basement as there is utility carts as soon as you get off of the elevator. 4 cases of empty beer bottles greeted us for a day beside the laundry cart. My rooms floor is very creaky and noisy. The room itself is dated with a tuberculosis and a kitchenette table that is about to fall apart and the microwave turntable doesnt work. All of these issues are liveable but coming home and having to park in the curb or grass as there is either not adequate parking or people from the hospital are parking there?? My wife can't walk that far and I have a handicap parking permit but both of those were occupied. The breakfast I'd adequate but could be much larger as it gets severely bottlenecked and there should be someone checking the levels of products frequently instead of having to be told. Overall it's ok not an awesome place but adequate, the staff are very friendly.

Thank you for posting this review. Please know, I am very sorry for the issues you experienced with us during your stay. The conditions you described about our property are definitely not acceptable. I can assure you this has prompted a meeting with my hotel staff to ensure this situation is not repeated.

As well, like many other hotels, the summer is a very busy season for us. I apologize that because of this influx you experienced issues with parking and found breakfast to be a bit crowded. Your feedback will definitely be taken into account on these areas as we work to improve our processes.

Thank you again for staying with us, and for your remarks. It would be our pleasure to have you stay with us again in the future or at any of our other brand locations. Please do not hesitate to reach out with further questions or concerns.

Let me start with the (only) bad news, as stated by other travellers: yes, the walls are thin and if your neighbours move the chairs around you will hear it. However, we just spent three nights at the ESD St. John's and found it to be excellent value for money!!!

I booked via Priceline as an Express Deal (not knowing what hotel it would be) for $91 per night and was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is close to downtown (talking car here, that you will need anyway to get around) and we were greeted by friendly staff and found the hotel as well as our room clean and pleasant. The hotel and the rooms itself are a bit dated but keeping in mind what we paid nothing noteworthy.

The highlights for me were the kitchenette, the laundry facilities and the complimentary continental breakfast and free wifi (in the hotel and room).

We spent a couple of days camping so washing some clothes was greatly appreciated, as well as cooking the leftovers we had.

The only reason why this review doesn't get all five stars are the thin walls, otherwise both thumbs up and highly recommended!

Thank you for your overall glowing review about your stay at our hotel. We hope that you had an amazing time camping in the area - it is a great place to do so! Knowing that we were able to provide you with a place to do laundry, especially after spending a few nights in the woods, is so great. We offer this and other items like the in-room kitchen to our guests as an additional perk for staying with us; it is clear that they were a highlight for you. In terms of the disturbances you might have encountered, please do accept my apologies.

We appreciate your business and if you are ever back on the island, we hope you will stay with us again.
