Terrible room, not that clean, well used, smelt, full of junk furniture, over $100 per night;
no breakfast, downstairs smelt too, looks like they went to an aution and rounded up
all the old furniture they could find. Could not wait to leave. Worst place in all our trip, need
to refurbish, clean well, paint and deoderize, buy new furniture and matteress.
Depresing and digny.

Hi,
went to this hotel with my husband and parrot. The receptionist was real nice. She gave us the best room, well you have to do your best with what you got.. right. The owner needs to start buying some matresses. The matress was so old, that my husband was on me all night. The air conditioner was so loud that I woke-up evertime it started.. Then, we got a free breakfast. Well, this was so gross.. the cheapess eggs and sausage sold on this planet. Plus the potato, McCains. No spice, I could of done better with a microwave and by going to the grocery store. Gross like you wouldn't believe. Next, I got a tea, well the milk was pass the date, so milk chunks were at the bottom of my cup. The worst place of my entire trip. Its too bad!

Sorry Guys, you need some improvement.

Stayed 5 nights and found the room clean and comfortable with free internet and mini fridge. Appreciated the 24 hour free tea/coffee in the lobby. When we arrived we were informed that they were having a special and so the price of our room had dropped $14 a night! That never happened before. The staff were friendly. They provide a hot breakfast and while what they provided was fine, the menu was too limited. There was no juice or cereal and I really didn't want bacon and eggs 5 days in a row. This motel is old but if, like us, you want clean and comfortable for a good price, this one is worth considering. I will stay again.

After reading all the great reviews we were a bit disappointed.
On the positive side the rooms were clean and spacious and the beds comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful.
On the down side the lobby and hallways were a bit tired and dingy and did not give a good first impression. It also seems that the motel has a lot of tradesmen staying there and we had to request a change of room since some young guys a couple of rooms away were being quite noisy and boisterous, this was at 5 in the afternoon, so we were worried about later at night.
The staff were very apologetic and moved us to a much nicer room which was quiet.

So as a retired couple who like peace and quiet at the end of the day we would not choose this again. If you are just looking for a reasonably priced place which is clean with comfortable beds close to lots of box stores this would suit you fine.

Stayed here three nights in February. For the price this place can't be beat. The room decor is a bit dated, but everything was clean and functioning in the room. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious and with a mini fridge. There is free wireless. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located very near to the highway but we were surprised that we could not hear traffic, despite being on the highway side of the hotel. I generally prefer to stay in a downtown area - but it is hard to beat the value the City Hotel offers.
The on-site restaurant (Panda) had great food. There is a takeout menu in the rooms, but there is a more extensive menu (complete with what they call "Chinoserie" - their authentic menu) available in the restaurant..

The hotel is very convenient to the University of New Brunswick and St Thomas University, since it is a short downhill walk to the campuses. The staff were friendly and the rooms are very spacious.

Totally enjoyed our stay there - staff was extemely friendly and the free 'make your own' breakfast was awesome! Was able to shower, wash my hair - then have a leisurely breakfast wearing a beach coverup (or something simliar) - also had free wireless internet in our room - and there is a computer with intenet access in the lobby. Shopping centre is just across the road (has a Sobey's, liquor store, and much more) - had takeout from Boston Pizza one night (which I would NOT recommend - very poor value even though it was very handy). There is also a bigger shopping centre just across the bridge (easy walking distance).

And the price is right!!
