this room is on the ground floor just out side were every one goes to smoke and shoot the breezes,if you like lots of second hand smoke stay there if you like to hear people talk stay there.
the furniture in the room is well used and old.
the food at the adjoining restaurant (East Side Marios) is over priced luke warm when you get it.
I have stayed in other Holidays Inn express and in my mine a bigger bang for your buck,I will not be back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pike36 unrenovated room, unpleasant experience
Being a reward member, we always stay at Holiday Inn. Our experience thus far has been excellent....until we stayed at the St. John's Gov't Center. This hotel has obviously not undergone any renovations like many of your other hotels. The first sign of this, was the fact that our toilet and sink were in different rooms. I found this very odd and awkward. Using the washroom and then having to cross the hallway to wash your hands is strange to me. The other issue we had was, we asked for a cot to be in our room when we booked the reservation(months prior), when we arrived, there was no cot. We called down and they said it would be brought up. We left for a few hours to sight-see, when we returned, the "cot" was in our room. This "cot" was about the size of a double bed. The mattress was attached to a large wooden board. The cot was standing up straight in the room because it was much to big to lay flat....basically, there was absolutely no where to fit it in the room. The person who brought it in, left it standing straight up for that reason. We called down and said that we couldn't use it because it didn't fit, so they took it away. My son ended up sleeping on two chairs pushed together. The price for this nights stay was the most we have ever paid at a Holiday Inn and unfortunately, it was our worst experience. I still have a lot of confidence in Holiday Inn and will continue to stay there, I just hope our experience is better next time.

A very busy place, so call ahead. The staff still have time for you and are very helpful. the heated pool is nice, but needs a little touch up; the view over Kelly's pond is very relaxing and the restaurant is busy and service was excellent and the you can't beat the food. All in all one of the best places I've stayed on business, across the country.

I was in a room on 3rd floor. It was a windy day in St. John's and all night the wind whistled through the air conditioner to the point that it kept waking me up through the night.

Breakfast and Eveing meal at restaurant was superior to other restaurants experienced in St Johns.
Staff very helpful and supportive of requests asked for information.
In my view Holiday Inn is continually the benchmark all others aspire to and will continue to be primary accomadation for me internationally and locally.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heather56 Comfortable & accomodating ! Attached restaurant was downfall.
We stayed three nights at this hotel and it was comfortable and very accommodating considering it was fully booked. The only downfall to our stay was the attached restaurant...East Side Mario's. Poor service and high prices in the restaurant. Would have been nice even to have continental breakfast option in hotel as we were on motorcycles but braved the rain rather than go in to Mario's. Good thing because some waited over two hours for their breakfast.
Again hotel was fine... but plan to eat offsite.

It was a good experience, will do it again in 2 years. :)
The ceiling in Salon Room F is too low, not good for pictures, etc.
The pie that was picked for dessert was a disappointment. It was soggy and the filling was lumpy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bryan1926 My thoughts
I believe your hotel is extremely overpriced for the age of the hotel and the luxury you have to offer. I have stayed in much nicer hotels for a lot lower price. I don't believe I would recommend your facility because of this.

Overall, I would recommend this location. The check-in process was easy and fast. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The only things that I was not impressed with was the restaurant that is attached and the washrooms. The attached restaurant is EAST SIDE MARIO'S and the food is not really my style. We were there on business and did not rent a car so we were limited to the restaurant when we had to fend for our own meals. The meals that Holiday Prepared for our meeting purposes were great.
The washrooms in the standard room are small. The sink and mirror on on one side of the room with a small closet behind it and the tub and toilet are on the other side of the room and it is a very tight space.
Overall, the experience was good. I especially like that they have two types of pillow ( soft and hard) for you to choose from on each bed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by johnny76 Worst Holiday Inn i have stayed in
As a platium member i exspect at least resonable service. I booked a specific room and was confirmed with a confirmation number. When i arrived they down graded my room to a micky mouse bed / conference room. I was told they were sold out and that the last room i had booked was booked over a week ago. ( i had booked several week in advance). They just plain and simple sold my confirmed room and down graded me. I contacted the front desk, that i was not satisfied with the room but told there were no other rooms available. Also they had rent the room across from me as a hospitallity room for a party.
I left in the morning for the day and when i returned they had made my bed, provided a clean towel and left everything else. The coffee maker still on, no coffee replacement, Garbage bins not empty , dirty coffee cup on the desk.
I have to go back for another week and will definatly not stay at this hotel. There is a new (other Brand ) 5 minutes away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fungus13 One night stay! Very pleased.
I was especially pleased with the bands there were attached to the pillows indicating the firmness/softness of them. I have not seen that before and thought it unique. Generally a satisfactory stay for only one night with very little time spent at the facility.
Great atmosphere in the restaurant and Bar facility! Great service in there! Very friendly & comfortable!
No recognition as a New Priority Club Member. Disappointing!

Upon arriving the front desk was very helpful and accomodating.
During my stay, I asked for room service, which was fast and very friendly. The cleaning staff also have to be commended. I'm sure their job is not an easy one, but they always had a smile and kept my room in tip top shape. I would definetly recommend staying at the holiday inn to anyone who asks.
Thank you to all staff at the Holiday Inn

Did not like the idea of paying 200.00 deposit plus full fee of my stay up front just because I wanted to pay cash when I left and not credit card. Should only have to pay a deposit, I understand that, but I should not have to pay anything else until I have finished my stay. Could be a little cleaner around the faucet set in bathroom, and hairdryer did not work when I needed it.

I have stayed at this property about five times. The only reasons i keep coming back is because I am a loyal Holiday supporter and have been since 1996. The second reason is that it is the only Holiday Inn in St.Johns!

I always find the staff at this hotel to be professional yet friendly. from front desk to maintenance to housekeeping they all are willing to keep you satisfied.I like the free access to computer room. We usually print our boarding passes for our flights. we often eat in the hotel restaurant entertaining guests.There the staff seem to know the menu and are helpful and pleasant. The food is also of good quality and prices.I feel the hotel is located with easy access to airport.highway,shopping and city bypass roads.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neville I've always known what I could expect at HI and have not been disappointed. Clean, comfortable rooms in a hotel that takes pets.
I have not been disappointed on any of my many stays at the Holiday Inn in St. John's. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I especially like that you accept pets. I would recommend that smoking near the entrances be banned up to a certain distance. It is anonying to have to walk through a gauntlet of smokers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BCQ5Traveler Not Cheap But Ok Place to Stay
This is an older hotel that has had some recent updating. The main updates based on the room I was in seem to be furniture, Flat Panel TV's and some cosmetic things.
Unfortunately the bathroom in my room was poorly designed and laid out and was extremely tight and not a very comfortable spot to even try to take your shower. Sink is outside and across the other side of the entry hallway.
I was disappointed that the normal bottle of water and snack or upgrade that is supposed to go along with the frequent night program (Priority Club Gold) was not in evidence. This is the only Holiday Inn I have stayed in for several years that does not provide some perk for Priority Club members.
The restaurant in the place is simply terrible and I have reviewed it elsewhere but I would not eat there unless there is no other option. The breakfast was the worst I have ever had in a Hotel.
The room seemed to be relatively clean etc and close to my office.. but I will look for a better place to stay my next trip to St. John's.

If you have any status as a Priority Club Member be sure to advise the front desk as to your level as they have no mention of it in their System and when you ask and only when you ask they will upgrade you.
Not sure but I am sure its supose to work the other way around.

The Staff on the front desk are wonderful. They go out of their way to help. When I arrive, everything is in order. The Housekeeping staff are very friendly and helpful. Holiday Inn in St. John's is one of the best hotels that I have stayed in. During the summer I travel for 3 weeks through Canada and the US and I stay at Holiday Inn but I really enjoy St. John's the best.

I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the nice visit we recently had to the Holiday Inn on Portugal Cove Road in St. John's. I always find the staff to be friendly and the accomodations comfortable and of good value. Our grandchildren especially enjoyed their pizza from your restraurant, I didn't think kids that age could eat so much :-).
Keep up the good work.
