“I like old hotels that are kept up, but this one is Skid Row.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2011

When I travel, I like to get away from the cookie-cutter motel chains when I can and stay in older downtown hotels. I am willing to sacrifice some of the modern comforts if an old place has been reasonably kept up and affords a taste of nostalgia. This is what we expected from the Hotel Corner Brook, and we booked two nights at $75 each, on the better end of rates for motels and B&Bs in the area. When we arrived, we were appalled at the condition of the place. The exterior looked a little beat up, but the lobby seemed reasonably nice. But we got bad vibes going to our room on the third floor. The carpets were badly stained and wrinkling away from the floor. Someone had kicked a big gouge into the wall of the elevator. The room had a bed that visibly sagged, stained carpeting, no screens in a window which was difficult to open anyway, a funky smell, and furniture that was very badly chipped and gouged. It did not feel like a safe place -- and this comes from someone who has never given a one-star review before (check my contributions). We turned around and left, and found a beautiful B&B for just $5 more per night. I do not see how the Hotel Corner Brook can charge $75 for such dingy accommodations. It looks like it was once a nice hotel, and I hope someone will take it over and restore it to what it used to be.
