Stayed here while visiting Gros Morne National Park. Efficient staff keep the facilities in tip top shape. Beds were comfortable and the room quiet and clean. We traveled with our dog, and the staff took the pet-friendly aspect seriously Pleased with our stay and recommend.

We stayed here two separate nights on our trip as we flew in and out of Deer Lake. This a good, basic hotel. It was sold out both nights we were there so it was quite busy, though we thankfully did not have a lot of issues with noise. We had the same room both nights, which was a standard king. It did the job well, bed was very comfortable, it has a sitting area, a desk, and a clean bathroom. They offer free breakfast, which we took advantage of on our first morning. They also do a pre-order grab&go breakfast for anyone travelling on the very early flights to Toronto, available after 3AM. I thought this was a really nice touch.

Staff were friendly and efficient. I would recommend trying to get a room on the top floor, as noise carried through the ceiling from our upstairs neighbours quite well. The hotel looks fairly new on the outside, but as others have noted, seems to be showing some age inside.

Overall a good place to rest if you're flying in and out of Deer Lake.

I had an unexpected 2 day visit at this establishment and was so grateful for their hospitality. The rooms are spacious and very clean...beds are comfy and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I had booked last minute in hopes of getting ahead of the weather so I wouldn’t miss my flight back to Toronto and ended up finding out at 4am that it had been cancelled. The front desk attendant made sure I was ok throughout the day as I took over the business centre and even made sure I knew where I could eat while I was left stranded without a vehicle.
The holiday inn brand is always an excellent choice as you know you will always get the same level of service and comfort regardless of where you are In the world. The staff at Deerlake take that level of hospitality one step further by making you feel like an old friend coming home for a visit.
I couldn’t have asked for a better place to wait out the unpredictable Newfoundland weather!

We stayed here the night before a flight back to Toronto, taking advantage of the proximity to the Deer Lake airport. Unfortunately, the hotel has seen better days. The night we arrived the bed in our assigned room looked like it had been slept in - when we complained, the night manager agreed, and was nice enough to put us in a different room where the bed looked freshly made. However, soap and shampoo dispensers in bathroom were empty. Overall, the hotel is run down, and housekeeping, as noted, does not appear to be on top of its game. Definitely not up to the standards that I would have expected from Holiday Inn. Would not stay there again.

For a town that hosts an airport, having only one chain hotel is a surprise. But, this hotel hosts many amenities such as pool, free full breakfast, and towel cleaning service in every floor for pool users.

The hotel is in a great location, close to the Trans Canada Highway, great for drivers, but if you don't have a car, be prepeared to get food delivered.

For an airport hotel though, I'm surprised it is not noiseproof. I always hear flights arriving and departing from our room so if you're exhausted and sensitive to noise, you will have a bit of a struggle to sleep.

Breakfast-wise they have everything in there, including a pancake machine that I have abused because I was so amazed by it and the fluffiness of the pancakes they make!

Now I'm looking forward to stay in a Holiday Inn Express more often.

Had a 2 night stay here with the kids so we could visit the Insectarium (only a few mins away) and other activities in the area. Hotel is a short walk to the beach and close to grocery store, hiking trails etc. Playground for the kids just across the street. Very clean and the room was great. We had a bunk bed room which the kids enjoyed and gave us extra space (sitting room area with couch and table and chairs). Super quiet, didn’t hear a sound all night. Beds were super comfy too. Breakfast is included and the staff are set up to select what you would like due to Covid, very fast and efficient! You had to book a time slot for the pool which we did in advance and then our family had the pool to ourselves! Great way to do it holiday inn. I’d recommend this hotel to anyone in the area.

We stayed at this hotel during our child’s tournament nearby. The hotel is clean, and the staff are very friendly. There is even a dog at the front desk for anyone missing their fur baby at home, but don’t worry, if you don’t like dogs you don’t have to deal with him. The free breakfast buffet has good selection and the food is fresh. My two complaints with this hotel are the fact that it is fairly pricey for a Holiday Inn Express. Expect to pay just short of $200 plus tax for a room. While I don’t blame the hotel for charging what they can charge, be aware the Deer Lake hotels are among the most expensive in the province. My second complaint is that this hotel is all wood construction. If someone runs down the hallway you can certainly hear it. Since there are many sports teams staying here it tends to be noisy. Staff do their best at keeping everyone under control, but if you are a light sleeper who goes to bed early, you might have some issues with this. Overall, this is a great hotel, but the wood construction and the associated noise subtract 1 star.

This hotel only has the “Holiday Inn Express “ name. Shame on Holiday Inn, it is not clean, bedding, towels, carpet in terrible shape. No excuse for this! Breakfast was horrid, tables not clean, we know it is hard with Covid but perhaps bagged breakfasts is safer than not being able to wipe tables. This is not 50.00 a night hotel!

The staff here are so sweet and helpful! So kind to our young boys who were full of questions, always had a helpful idea on where to go explore or eat, pleasurable to deal with during checkin and each day of our stay. The night staff are equally awesome! Give stars also to the resident doggy Wilson!!! This awesome pooch is the handsome dog doorman who is available to guests for snuggles and dogs walks (should you wish to have some company while out about).

The pool is great for those travelling with kids! As per Covid rules you have to book your swim slot (do this as soon as you book to get your preferred times as they do book up!)

Complimentary breakfast was good with lots of variety. Staff on breakfast duty were very nice.

Hotel is in a great location - 2 minute walk to Deer Lake beach! Easy access to highway to Gros Morne and Corner Brook.

Fully recommend to families looking to get away but still have lots of amenities for those travelling with kids!

Nice hotel, for express hotel your getting the basics. stayed here before, for a fairly new hotel this location seems to be showing its age already in rooms, just looks aged. Beds are comfortable though.
Breakfast included is pretty good, omelette, sausage, toast, hash brown, yogurt, cereal etc.

There is a indoor pool with slide that the kids always enjoy.

Staff is helpful, they also have a dog that lives at hotel, he is loved by staff, and a great treat for visitors, especially once covid passes.

I had a rental car when I was there as well but the airport is very close to the hotel - less than a 10 minute drive. According to the airport website the shuttle service is provided by one of the local taxi services, Star Taxi at (709)634-4343. The other taxi service is Deer Lake Taxi at (709) 635-2521.
