Holiday Inn St. Johns
Ranked #19 of 22 Hotels in St. John's
Reviewed 10 April 2008

Even the cheap Bread and Breakfast places have wireless internet access in all their rooms but this Holiday Inn doesn't have that. The manager gave me a room where it can be accessed (as a favour after requesting).
I wanted to stay their again, called their central line to book but they said they cannot gurentee that room. Called the hotel they also couldn't gurentee that room (gave me silly reasons like their could be a leak etc....).
If you are dependent on your laptop and internet for business
DON'T STAY THERE..........
Central Booking line: Very Poor communication... They spoke to me as if they are doing a big favour.....
Dissappointed,

The Holiday Inn St. Johns is a decent hotel if you are on a budget and want something for just a few nights. The food was just OK. The room wasn't bad with an air conditioner and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were in excellent condition and looked new. The proximity to the airport was great. I would recommend it for a quick stay.

My flight was cancelled out of St John's. I called the hotel directly to see if any rooms were available, and there were. This was 9am in the morning. I told her I was a Priority Club member, and she took my number. I then explained that my flight had been cancelled, and was there any way I would be able to check in right away. She put me on hold for a moment, came back and said "No problem!" This was great already.
I have stayed at this property several times in the past 4 years, due to it's proximity to the airport. It is clean, comfortable, and the staff have always been very accomodating. No, this is not downtown, however if you just want to be near the airport, I would recommend this over the old Airport Inn (now a Comfort Inn).
The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean, and the restaurant is good. The bartenders in the bar are very nice also, and they have a great deal on appetizers (half off) early in the evening, and also later on. I have never had any problems whatsoever staying at this property, and plan to continue staying here when flying out.

This hotel needs to be updated and some new furniture would make this place so much nicer. The location is great if you want to be close to the airport but too far from everything else.

The rooms are okay, but stay somewhere else if you want to experience Newfoundland atmosphere. The New York style restaurant is pretty good, but I want to get away from the U.S. when I go on vacation. Stay in downtown St. John's instead.
