We would stay at this hotel a few times a year, in the past it was such a great family stay. Our last stay in March was pretty disappointing. My 5 year old and myself ended up with a chlorine burn from the hot tub, I sent an email and phoned and left a message for the hotel and never...

I have been staying at the best value inn every time I am in Saint John. The staff here are very friendly and will help you with anything you need. The best breakfast and dinner are far beyond what you would expect from a hotel. Good food, great people and hotel large rooms, why go anywhere else.

Disappointed we booked block rooms as a team and got spread out between three floors. The free breakfast was terrible and kids got ripped off by buying $25 cards for games room, another team booked out lazer tag and they were unable to play what they purchased. When hotel has no vacancies they shouldn't sell the cards if they have...

It's decent for the price. The rooms aren't super clean or nice but it's warmish and dry inside. If we weren't coming as a group I wouldn't even consider staying here. They let the kids get away with murder thought.

Arriving at Canada’s Best Value Inn, it was a very nice surprise to realize all the activities that are offered right on sight, including laser tag, bumper cars, mini golf and much more. The rooms quite dated but very clean and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast was included in the room rate and was to order off the...

Very friendly staff. Great amenities. Everything was clean and modern. I was surprised how nice it was. Especially considering the rate. The free made to order hot breakfast was very good. The only negative was minor. The bathroom could use updating.
