I would like to thank the staff and management team of this hotel for making my stay as a memorable one. Even though the weather was very cold but the stay was very warm. Very clean room, smiling staff at the reception was always willing to help. Keep up the good work.

Even though it is an older hotel, it is maintained well and kept clean. Comfortable bed, friendly staff, good grub and nice pub. What more do you need.

We were affected with the province wide power outages and blizzard and glad to find a warm place to stay with Holiday Inn St. John's. The few staff that were on hand, we're amazing and took care of everyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry63 Old Hotel
This is an old and tired property, definitely in need of major updating and renovations. The rooms are small with very little closet space. The bathrooms are tiny, with the sink outside. The shower was actually pretty good. The in-room wired internet worked pretty good, the wireless was not so good (our room was the last one on a very long corridor, so likely out of range).
The wind howls through the old windows and the little window HVAC units are noisy and have very little affect. There is a useless small balcony which is just a waste of space (old Holiday Inn design) and adds an exterior cold door. There is no indoor pool. You will get charged for out-going calls from your room phone.
The hotel staff seem friendly enough, but seem to be hand-cuffed by what they have to work with. Seemed to have limited options for upgrades for IHG Rewards members.
The restaurant (East Side Mario's) is fine if you want a large meal, but has limited offerings for anyone looking for a light dinner at a reasonable price. Didn't try them for breakfast or lunch.
There are better hotels in better locations. This hotel is close to the airport and confederation building, but that's about it. We usually stay down-town, but chose this Holiday Inn to redeem some points. Not a good choice for us.
I suggest that the owners tear down this old hulk and build a modern hotel. The property appears to be in a valuable location, but the building itself is out dated.

Have been staying here a lot last couple of years. It is an average hotel. Not a bad choice for business. The perks of being a gold or platinum member in this hotel doesn't stack up to hotels in the same chain.
