  • 2.0.Poor

    The room was filthy. On arrival there was hair in the shower, dirt visible on the floor, drips of fluid on the headboard, and the fridge and microwave were filthy. They sent a woman up to clean it and she changed the bedding and fixed the bathroom. She told us the marks on the headboard were wood glue but then they wiped off when she wiped them.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The room was great. It was modern and very comfortable. The male who checked us in was great. The female who replaced him was not friendly. The pool schedule is also a giant mess. It's first come, first serve up to 20 people. Each group is supposed to get an hour. Except no one is monitoring it. There's often only half occupancy in there. And they won't take your name to let you know when there's a space. They expect you to call down and ask if there's room every 30 mins. And then they get frustrated when you follow the instructions. We ended up going down and counting the number of people ourselves, since they obviously didn't care to. They really would benefit from having scheduled time slots like every other hotel has. Other than the pool situation, we were very pleased with our stay. It's an old hotel that is showing its age, but they're working on updates. The onsite restaurant and play center is a perk when staying with children.

    I had such an awesome two weeks here! Hotel staff are super nice and very accommodating. The beds where very comfortable and the rooms have been newly updated. There are so many nice features that are small that make a big difference like all of the the USB plugs around the room! I would strongly recommend staying here to anyone looking to enjoy what St. John has to offer.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I always go to major chains that get you with good price but then get you with parking fees they have is small at the end of the reservation. This was a very good price, no hidden fee and a great breakfast for covid time. The staff was just wow. Saying hi, the desk calling you by name. Also. I got a Room with a view of the harbour. WoW. I don’t come often to SJ but Next time I am, i will be staying there. Not a 5 stars hotel but has 5 stars service.

    Comfortable but could have been better

    The check in was very smooth. The front desk staff was very friendly. We we checked in to one of the renovated rooms. The mattress was very comfortable and the room cozy. However, the room and the bathroom could have been cleaned better. The tub was not cleaned properly.
