We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Deer Lake 3 different times as we criss-crossed the province during our 2 week Newfoundland vacation and had a great experience all 3 times. We stayed here our first night after coming into Port aux Basques, on our way back from St. John's for an overnight on our way up to St. Anthony and as a home base at the end of our trip for 3 days to explore Gros Morne. There are hotels in Port aux Basques and hotels closer to Gros Morne but we stayed for free using points all 3 times and are so glad we did because of what a great place this is. (And a very reasonable amount of points for each stay) Everyone at the reception desk is super friendly. They exchanged dollars for loonies to do laundry and even let us know that they had free DVD players behind the desk if we wanted to use one. We stayed in the family suite each time which was perfect for our family of 5. It has a king bed, pull out sofa and bunk beds. The hotel has a large breakfast / lounge area with lots of family board games stored by the big tv that guests are free to use. The breakfast wasn't as good as a Hampton or Fairfield Inn breakfast but you could easily get filled up if you aren't picky. There were a few mornings that the eggs were ruined by covering every square inch of the folded omelets with onions and red peppers but there were lots of other options and a very attentive staff. The pool was closed for repairs during our stays but we were called a month ahead of time to tell us about the closure which we appreciated, and were offered the option of being able to swim at a local pool nearby. One minor negative thing was that the tv by the bunk bed had very limited channels and poor reception. I'm not sure why this is the case when the large tv for the room 2 feet away had great reception and lots of tv channel choices. We used the laundry while there but they only have 1 washer and 1 dryer so come early. The hotel is roughly an hour from Gros Morne - we didn't mind the scenic drive there and back every day so this was a perfect place as a home base. There are fast food restaurants (Tim's, Pizza Delight, Subway, Burger King, KFC) gas stations and a grocery store super close by. And in closing I must say - this hotel had the most comfortable bed out of the numerous hotels that we stayed at during our trip through New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Labrador and St. Pierre & Miquelon! If we ever make it back to beautiful Newfoundland we'll definitely stay here again!
