Recent guest reviews
Notes from my recent visit (I checked out on Sept. 26): - A reasonably good facility. One unexpected characteristic: The hotel was apparently built without air conditioning in the rooms, so they subsequently put in portable air conditioners. These are the size of a large suitcase, sit on the floor by the window, and have a vent pipe (the same as your dryer at home, about 4" in diameter) to transfer heat to the outside. The solution works, but arguably they should have instead put in through-the-wall A/C units. - There aren't any PCs and printers available to guests. This isn't a problem unless you get to St. John's by air and leave the same way. In my case, I had to go to a Staples location about 15 minutes away to print out my boarding passes for my return flights. (If you use a smartphone for boarding passes, of course, no need for paper documentation.) - No newspapers available at the hotel, but adequate shopping is available about 2-10 minutes away from the hotel. - Very helpful staff facilitated connecting my tablet PC to the hotel's WiFi. - Housekeeping seems okay. - Dishes and silverware available on request. The hotel provides a kit in a plastic storage box. The rooms have a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster. - Fitness center good for those of us who use the treadmill for walking. - Limited continental breakfast available 6-10 AM daily. - Location is about 5-10 minutes from the downtown area. I agree with the previous review that says it's a good home base for exploring St. John's and the Avalon Peninsula. (Take your GPS app or separate device.) - Guest laundry available. $6 Canadian needed for each load ($2 each for soap, washer, and dryer). - TV service is okay. The PBS network is available (unusual for any hotel), along with both Canadian and US cable news outlets.
Place was clean, staff were fine. Large parking lot with lots of space. I had this eerie feeling that I might get mugged walking across it in the night. Not a thing I can say wrong with the property. Just didn't click with me
We stayed here 10 days while exploring the Avalon Peninsula. A good location within walking distance of the harbor and close to the TCH. The kitchen is adequate with a small grocery/drugstore 1 block away and a supermarket/liquor store a 3 min. drive away. The free breakfast is well stocked and clean.
The place smelled seemed dirty and old. I couldn't get my stuff back left in room even though I could have picked up! Wanted closer to downtown seemed in a run down neighbourhood ....would not stay agaun
Was not impressed with the amount of cigarette butts upon entering the front doors, Smell of smoke in lobby and just overall atmosphere was not pleasant. Staff, however, was very pleasant and professional.
It was a little rough around the edges but a great value, convenient if you have a car, comfortable and I slept well. It was quiet and having access to a microwave, stove and fridge was really convenient.
The place was in a great location easy to get to. Came with breakfast staff was there to help. Building was in good standing and rooms came with their own kitchen and items were available if needed . Didn't like the beggers approaching us everytime asking for money as we got out of our vehicle nor the constant smokers at the front entrance but it doesn't seem to be the hotels fault. Pets are allowed for additional $30 per stay but you are only to stay in a certain area. Breakfast is included so is parking. Grounds seemed to be maintained and inside the building and areas are kept clean Beds weren't the best but overall experience not to bad would stay again
We booked this hotel for one night based on the kitchenette and the refrigerator specifically. When we got there we found only a bar fridge. We called the front desk and were told that was all they had in any of the rooms. The front desk staff was very helpful. He offered to put our stuff in the hotel freezer for the night. Room was very clean. The towels were really rough. Our children slept on the sofa bed and it was very uncomfortable. Not a bad stay, but I would not stay again.
This is a fairly low priced hotel, but I would say it fails to even meet that value. The rooms are clean, but not everything in them will work properly. There is free parking in the lot and free low-speed wifi. You have to pay for upgraded wifi to stream. Avoid the free breakfast - trust me. There were a lot of rough individuals hanging around the building and going in and out, and made me think that maybe the hotel doubled as welfare housing. This is not a place to take your kids, our for a single female. It was sufficient for my needs, but I wouldn't return.
Our first night in this hotel we just dropped our bags turned on the air conditioner and left to go to a movie. When we returned 3 hours later the room hadn't cooled at all. I went to the front desk and the clerk said just open a window, being a very muggy night that was not a solution also With the crime rate I wasn't going to sleepwith the window open, after much humming and haaing he came down to the room, fiddled with the controls and said see it's cold. Myself, not being stupid said that is not cold air. Eventually being moved to a room with a single and a double ,not what I reserved, I told him that the curtains were falling off the window he said there is nothing I can do I will let day shift know. The next day another clerk tried to fix the window curtains but was totally lost, I ended up having to use a clip I had to hold the curtains together. My last stay here.
