This was not our first stay here. We were not informed prior to arrival that the pool was closed for renovations. Otherwise, the stay was fine. The restaurant had great food.

Renovated modern rooms are great with a nice view of the Saint John signage up the hill. I like that buffet breakfast was included. Bit dissapointed that toothbrush ans toothpaste have an additional fee.

Good things: Very quiet, comfortable bed, friendly staff, maid service was great, excellent breakfast and lots of parking. Bad things: Dust everywhere and carpets hadn't been vacuumed in years in the corners, box spring exposed and stained, bathroom was old and shower stall was all chipped, bath tub was chipped and rusty. Hookers were very visible. Lots of gambling everywhere .. but it is an entertainment centre.
