I had booked a room and cancelled back it in September when the hotel was still under the Howard Johnson (Wyndham) brand and noticed that my credit card was charged for the booking when I had previously cancelled my room. When I contacted Wyndham they provided horrible support and basically told me that the hotel was transferred to Canada's Best... More

I am yet to find a more disgusting hotel room. The beds we're so extremely worn out, sagging in the middle and when i checked the manufacturer date it was October of 1990! A 26 year old mattress. I awoke with a serious back pain. The room smelled old and musty. The shower had mould all throughout it. The carpets... More

It's really in very much in need of renovation, smell bad and very old. The water in shower was going on burning hot to cold, bed hard like hell and extension cord everywhere in the room. Food tasted like old grilled metal tastes, except for the toast. I give a 1 star and that is all I can give. A... More

The best thing about our stay was the breakfast and the bed. Breakfast was included in the price and we had 11 choices from the menu. The beds were comfortable and we both enjoyed a good sleep. The wifi was non-existent in our room. We were in a corner and the wifi would only appear at the door. The hotel... More

Overall, I was pleased with my stay at the Howard Johnson Plaza hotel in Saint John. It's not a five-star hotel, but it had all the basics and most of the amenities were up to date. This hotel had the fastest Wi-Fi I've seen at a hotel which was nice considering we didn't have a Canadian data plan while visiting... More
