Comfy beds, close to the airport, very friendly staff. A bit pricey and feels worn in places, although I see renovations are happening. We stayed both nights inside on the 2nd floor in the 400 rooms. That hallway has a funky smell - a mix a mildew and chemical agent to cover it.
Clean room,excellent staff and super helpful would definitely stay again!!!!!!
Location was very good. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was very comfortable. Very good value. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. No downside. Arrived at 10:00pm - dining was closed (but that is not unreasonable). Was too early in year for the courtyard to be open.
View of the harbour
Great location, wonderful views, good restaurant on site, clean rooms. Expensive (maybe because I am American and it seems like all prices in Canada are high)
the location was perfect for me. the view (harbour) was beautiful. the room was well-appointed and comfortable, and was clean. the staff were pleasant and helpful. the price was very reasonable.
The hotel is well situated, the staff are mostly efficient and friendly ... Three things: 1. Sound insulation between the rooms is inadequate - on my first night there ( a Saturday) my sleep was interrupted to say the least by the blaring TV in the next room which didn't stop until 4+a..m; 2. the maid service for the rooms didn't show up 2 out of 3 days until 4 p.m. or later; and 3. the hotel is located at a busy intersection the traffic noise in the morning (from 7 a.m. onwards) is quite pronounced - so unless you have early morning appointments don't count on sleeping in too late.
The staff was polite, accommodating and very helpful. This is the one hotel that offered its customers complimentary items on request that one often forgets to pack e.g. shaving cream, toothpaste etc N/A
It was close to city sights/stores downtown (walking distance) the parking lot was tight especially when other cars are parked beside the wall in underground parking, makes it difficult when you drive a large truck. The bedding needs to be replaced. The mattress was very firm and the blanket had holes in it.
I was on a business trip, very central. I enjoyed staying downtown near the water.
It was close to downtown. The room was comfortable..Restaurant was friendly and served good food. I didn't get the room I booked. I had to fight and print off my booking reference to get something close to what I had reserved. They wanted me to go in non smoking 2 double beds when i had reserved non smoking queen bed. What I actually received was smoking queen bed. I didn't even get a discount for being misbooked nor did I get any other form of "i'm sorry" or "free meal". The lady at the desk actually said..."I guess you're happy now"...very rude! Other staff were friendly.
good location room had smokey smell and wireless internet only worked near the window.
I liked the location of the hotel the best. I could overlook the bay area and see mountains as well. My room could have been a little cleaner and the hotel staff could have been friendlier. Nothing bad happened, i just felt like they were very dry. Like they wanted me in and out.
The hotel has fantastic staff, very nice lobey and its located on the harbour. The locaton is the best.
Hotel is very old. Needs updating . Elevators are slow and really busy . You have to pay for parking!!
For the cost I paid and the room I got will stay elsewhere for more amenities and less cost next time truly disappointed for the price
The service and staff Room was to warm even when we turned it down to cool
Restaurant staff very attentive and friendly Too expensive for what you get.
We arrived late (3am) and the front desk was very kind. There were 3 families together and the reservations weren't exactly correct. One of us had a smoking room (yuck) and the other two had to move rooms in the middle of the trip due to the fact that their Prime Minister (''President'') was coming into town and they needed 2 floors free for him. It was a pain having to repack (we stayed 7 days) and unpack. They were very sorry for the inconvienence and the bell staff moved our stuff while we were out. A big inconvienence but everything else was 100%. Great staff throughout, rooms large, largest bathroom I've ever had in a hotel (even had a telephone in it :) ). Only a block from downtown, George Street, the harbor etc. We had a great view of the harbor. I will 100% stay at this hotel the next time we visit Newfoundland.

Breakfast, location Extended our stay for 1 night and the staff some hesitation but he got it done!
The room was big with a larger under counter fridge. The AC unit would not cut out and stayed on all night, and water wouldn't drain from the bath, making a shower in the morning impossible after a shower the night before.
Excellent location, good room size, friendly staff, reasonable price. Poll was a bit small.
The continental breakfast. Very small rooms, no side table by the bed.
My son enjoyed the pool and waterslide
The staff are very friendly, rooms are clean and it's located close to the airport. I reccomend this hotel to anyone who need a short stay for a shopping trip or because they want quick and easy access to the airport.
The service was excellent, room was very clean. The location is close to the airport and downtown. Chairs in the rooms are not particularly comfortable to work from for extended periods.
completely inappropriate to value for money: Whereas the quality of services the price is too large. Breakfast is sufficient.
pool; for the kids and free breakfast
Close to the airport,reasonable price,quiet location,easy acess to downtown in a taxi, free parking, staff friendly and helpful at all times. No
Our family enjoyed being able to use the pool and water slide as well as the continential breakfast which was, of course, self serve.
My kids enjoy the waterslide, I enjoy the proximity to the major shopping areas, and the free breakfast is the topping on the cake!
The Holiday Inn provided a clean, comfortable room with a nice range of extras for an affordable price. We were on a trip to attend a wedding, then do some sightseeing, so we didn't want to waste money on a hotel with a lot of fancy extras we wouldn't use or have time for. This hotel gave us a perfect balance of being pampered comfortably without paying a huge price tag! The only thing I found frustrating was that there weren't enough electric outlets working in our room, or enough conveniently located to get at for chargers, etc.
Good location. Room was the overpriced, considering the two-star rating. Lack of cleanliness: dirty socks, food found on floor in our room. Staff was aloof, not particularly friendly nor polite. Breakfast was very unhealthy: processed food and muffins loaded with sugar.
What we liked best about this hotel was the location & breakfast was included.
Clean, comfortable, and convenient to the city center.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Hometel from October 22-29, 2008. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and decor of the room. We are light sleepers and had a bit of trouble with noise on the first night. The sound was coming in through the air conditioner unit. The staff was very helpful and removed the unit for remainder of our trip. We slept much better after that. I have included a photo of our room: The location is very convenient. It is close to downtown and to Signal Hill. My boyfriend and I enjoy photography, so this worked well for us to get sunrise and sunset shots without having to drive far. I must add that the continental breakfast is superb. They had fresh fruit, toast, cereal, muffins, yogourt, hard-boiled eggs, coffee and tea. It was much more than I was expected and really helped to get the day going. I would definitely stay here again, and I will recommend Hometels to others.
the hometel in a great location to downtown or roads leading to other places. Its a quiet street,& I felt very safe & comfortable staying there by myself and walking around the neighborhood or downtown area. Included breakfast which had many choices GREAT The parking could be a bit tricky a small car is much easier to park, adjacent streets you had to be careful of permit only areas.
After reading other reviews online, I had high expectations for this place. I was very disappointed. The bad things about the place include that it is VERY small room. There was no place to sit, so I ended up sitting on the floor most of the time. A desk or chair to sit and read emails would be nice. The internet was hit or miss most of the time. Parking was ridiculous. The bed was one of the worst I have ever slept in. The free breakfast was not at all looked after and there was never a knife anywhere to be found and never any coffee made. The good thing about this hotel was that it was in a great location. We close by many things, but there re other hotels even closer, so I would choose one of those instead. The room was clean and seemed newer. Overall, my husband and I were not happy here at all.
