We went to St John in Oct 2015 or shopping. We stayed at Ho Jo. on Portland Street. Room was excellent and clean with a great view of the harbour. Excellent service at the restaurant also and price of meal was second to none. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 10 days before our move away from Saint John. This is a hotel that is very popular with sports teams coming in for tournaments, so the weekends were a bit on the loud side, but otherwise we had a really nice stay. The rooms are basic hotel rooms, we had two double beds in our room,...

I was completely disgusted! I found cigarette ashes in a "Clean" coffee mug in my room. An hour later I passed by a room that was being "cleaned" by the maid, I stood outside the open door to the room and watched her take the same rag she used for dusting and wipe the inside of a coffee mug then...

Over the past three years, I have hosted and delivered professional training events at this hotel. This venue provided me with many convenient options, such as the various sizes of available rooms, supportive equipment, storage, catered refreshment breaks, and lunch/ dining possibilities -- all for an affordable price. During this time, I was always incredibly impressed by the level of...

I'll start by saying that the staff at this hotel is top notch. (Minus one waitress that made us feel like she was doing us a favor by waiting on us) The rest were fantastic and kind and incredibly accommodating, given we took over their hotel with 3+ hockey teams for an entire weekend. I never once felt like our...

I didn't like this hotel, it was dirty. One of my passengers found bugs in his bed and changed to the other bed in his room which seemed fine. On the plus side it has a pool. Not a hotel I would visit again until it has had somewhat of a face lift internally.

I travelled to Saint John for a conference and decided to try this hotel since colleagues have stayed here before. What a wonderful stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast was superb. It was actually made to order, you select from 9 menu items. Nice change from the usual continental breakfast at other chains. The rooms...
