The staff was friendly and helpful. The decor is dated, tired, and the place needs uplifting. It's decently clean and comfy...a bit overpriced for what you get but we got a decent night's sleep. We had no trouble connecting to the internet and check-in/out were a breeze.

Sinbad's hotel is located next to shopping center & Tim Horton's. Lovely dining area and the buffet breakfast is great for the early morning riser. Can connect to internet which is great for business. This hotel is dated and could use a face lift, overall I had a good stay and would stay there again. The employees at the hotel are friendly and professional.

Very very tired. So desperate for a complete overhaul. Yet the price is what you would expect to pay at a decent place. In its current state this place is like a $79 special at best.
Horrible beds. Ridiculous pillows. Problems with air conditioning. Crooked cabinets. Floor not level so drawers don't stay shut. Plumbing problems. Shower doesn't drain. Tub fills up while you shower. Just an all round dump really.
Good service however. The staff deserves a major renovation to the hotel.

Sinbad's is off the highway close to the mall. This is an older property but there have been renovations (dining room). My attempts (and failure) to connect to the internet on the first night had me ready to move to another hotel as I rely on the internet while on these business trips. When I explained my dilemma to the wonderful lady at the front desk she immediately saved the day (for both us and the hotel...) by moving us to another room where the internet was fast and reliable. Thank you Marina. The room was comfortable and clean but the owners are going to have to consider renovating soon as it is showing wear. A beautifully decorated dining room with a nice breakfast buffet included along with the wonderful staff will have me coming back.

Room Tip: If you need internet make sure you let them know.

This older Hotel is right in the heart of Gander and fairly easy to get to. Check in staff was great and very friendly. Was tired from traveling so ate at on site restaurant which was very good. Room was clean, little old looking with décor but all you should need. There is also a lounge on site which serves food and drinks. Will stay here again on my next trip to the area.

This hotel is in dire need of some upgrades. It is not 1981 anymore. Things have changed and so should your hotel.

The only nice things about this place was the woman at the front desk when we checked in. Nice lady. Cannot remember her name.

Stayed here for a week while on business. My room was very clean and comfortable. The window opened onto a small courtyard which unfortunately resounded with the hum of air conditioners. Not enough to put me off totally. The common area (lobby and hallways) are very tired and not as clean as they could be. But the service staff was friendly and accommodating; service in the boardroom I used was prompt. The adjoining restaurant is quite good. It is a large hotel; my room was 137 steps from the elevator.
