I was impressed from the moment I walked into the building. The lobby was bright and welcoming. The breakfast area looked newly renovated with stainless steel appliances.

Our room was a king suite and it was incredibly clean and spacious. The shower was amazing – stand up stall with tons of different jets and even a seat! Complimentary breakfast was perfect for our needs – bagels, cereal, coffee, juice, etc.

We toured 5 provinces (8000 km) in 14 days including our main goal of driving around Labrador. Of all the hotels we stayed in this was the best!
