Don’t stay here!
We did not get the room we reserved. Waited almost an hour for the manager to “sort things out” only to be told if we were not happy we could stay somewhere else.

Clean, Quiet, Location
Downtown St. John's for $9X / night. Great room for a few nights. Fantastic location, clean, comfortable. Modern conveniences with some character of an older building. Nice. No check in counter, person texts you the door code for building, key on door. Never saw an employee.
