Nice property that's close to everything in St.John's. Clean rooms and great staff

Nice host, very responsive. Room is nice enough at a great central location. There was however a giant stain on the carpet in the middle of the room. Also, the TV was oddly 7ft up on the wall, very awkward to watch. Almost no channels available. Stayed on Thursday and Friday night. Thursday was quiet but Friday night the restaurant below played very loud music beyond 2:30 am. Whole room shook the whole time. Would not recommend to stay over the weekend if not going out yourself.

The location of the property was great. The room was spacious and the shower was nicely renovated. But otherwise, this place was a huge disappointment. The room had garbage in it when we checked in. We were there for three nights and no one ever came to make up the room, or leave us clean towels. I wish I could say they were trying to be eco friendly..... but I don’t think that’s what this was about. I think this place has some potential because of the great location but they really need to up their service game - a lot.
