Good things: Very quiet, comfortable bed, friendly staff, maid service was great, excellent breakfast and lots of parking. Bad things: Dust everywhere and carpets hadn't been vacuumed in years in the corners, box spring exposed and stained, bathroom was old and shower stall was all chipped, bath tub was chipped and rusty. Hookers were very visible. Lots of gambling everywhere .. but it is an entertainment centre.

Not what we expected

The price was right and the breakfast and wifi were pretty good, but it is an aging property in a lifeless part of town. I wouldn't let my kids swim in the cloudy pool.

This hotel wascloseto our sporting events.

Considering a water main broke in East Saint John, this hotel managed itself well with no water.

Great Stay!

Pros: the food and hospitality...everyone is so nice...
Cons: not that we saw
Location: reversing falls, town market, shopping
what a nice place to stay, plus you get a full breakfast off the menu, unbelievable. I have never stayed anywhere in the U.S. that does that. The staff was so helpful with directions and the money exchange. The nice thing is they are a very "Green" so they had recycle bins in every room. The U.S. hotels should do that. We had a beautiful view and was very close to all the sites...A must stay for anyone.

Nice view of harbor

Pros: Nice view of harbor, especially on moonlit nights. Hotel was close to pier and reversing falls. Some things were within walking distance.
Room not cleaned well. Bits and pieces of dust and particulate under foot. Stairwell was smelly and slightly dirty. TV reception problematic. I requested the bible be removed from room, due to religious objection, prior to arrival. However email response was a form letter. A bible was in the room after arrival. I then disposed of it myself.
