Good location on the water, close to Centre 200, free parking, free wifi. Bar/restaurant on site. Older hotel, rooms are a little "tired" but it was clean and comfortable. Tiny bathroom could use updating and some TLC. Very good customer service.

Very nice clean hotel. Very Friendly staff. The restaurant "crown and moose" was very appreciated on premise. Micheal was the most exceptional service staff. Ask for Micheal when eating in the restaurant, he will guide you carefully.

I booked two Queen beds in a harbourview room, nice view, spacious. I arrived 1130pm St. Paddys, so the Pub was hopping with a band playing. The hall seemed a little messy, pizza box was in the hall for a day... and post March break, a juice box and dip cup got missed by cleaners but they were on window...

Nice hotel and comfortable rooms. enjoyed a nice stroll along the board walk and was pleasantly surprised with the fitness centre. There was a pool available however I did not use it. Also, prices at the restaurant were pretty steep and the pub was closed for renovations when I stayed in February, so I had to leave the hotel for...

I loved the view out of my room when I stayed here. I had a corner room with a view of the water. The room was clean, comfortable and great size. Staff were friendly and the hotel is nicely located on the waterfront. One issue I had was that my room had a circular window that didn't have blinds or...
