We checked in late and left early, but was impressed with the modern renovations, clean room, and very, very comfy beds. Had a great sleep, and the ductless splits in every room provide excellent heat control. Would stay again.

We liked the staff and liked the Anchors Aweigh show......once. The fish and chips during the AA show was delicious. Do not consider ordering the nacho plate -- this is not MEXICO and this plate will prove it!! We two senior women found the Oceanview about the only accommodation around with separate beds for us. In looking, we had to...

We didn't stay in the hotel, but we went to the restaurant to grab lunch. There were two other tables already being served when we were there. The waitress seemed to be working alone that day. She was very frazzled and after waiting about 5 minutes, she came over with a menu and said "I can't take your order just...

good place to stay in Gros Morne. Big clean rooms. The front desk staff are not friendly or helpful but the hotel itself and the location is good. The nightly music show at the pub was a nice bonus. Good hotel overall- for Newfoundland standards.

A rundown motel. Smelled funky. Signs said a/c and wifi were intermittent. Disdainful service. Lumpy bed. Yellow water. No fan in bathroom so room was musty. No bar fridge. There are better options in Norris Point which are not that much more expensive.

We checked into this motel after being rained out in our tent site. We got the last room, and it was 1 o'clock in the morning when we checked in. The staff were very nice and accommodating however the hefty almost $200 price tag is expensive for this motel. Very clean.

Had second floor room over looking harbor. Although work was going on it did not effect our stay at all. wifi worked fine as did the AC. Rooms were clean and the deck outside the room was great to watch the sunset. Staff was helpful and let us know that a tour was having dinner at 6. We proceeded to...

The Ocean View Hotel has been undergoing some renovations and its external appearance has been improved from what we had seen on the web. The staff is friendly, housekeeping does a good job and the food in the dining room is good although not terribly innovative. The room price is a bit pricey considering that breakfast is not included. We...

This is a rather run down but busy place. It is teeming with families with children, traveling groups, and a steady stream of couples. It is not a restful place. But it is ideal for daily trips to the Gros Morn Park or a stop over to St. Anthony. We stayed 3 nights and tolerated it on account of its...
