Gower St is right downtown and is close to Duckworth st & Water St the main shopping st's
There are a few B&B's. I highly suggest "At Wit's Inn" for $129 or "Bell's Boutique $100" Both are Bed and Breakfast stays and are located side by side from each other.
Also there is a HI (hosteling international)
This is a nice place, a kind of Salvation Arrmy, where they help people. You pay only 40 dollars per night (in case that you are broke, they can allow you to stay for less, 25 dollars, or even for free).
It is also a shop and you can have a shower for free. You can cook your food.
friendly place. It is located close to the Police Station.
Stayed here for 4 nights on a weekend in May 2008. Had a room high up overlooking St Johns harbour.
The room and the food was quite good and the hotel was a hive of activity right through my stay.
Seem to be a number of conferences going on in the few days I was here.
Staff at reception quite helpful also.
We had a wonderful stay here a couple of years ago. It's a restored Victorian mansion is set in a large garden . The full home-cooked breakfasts are elegantly served in the formal dining room. Big rooms with high ceilings.
situated in a fine old residential neighbourhood a 15 minute walk or short bus ride from downtown.
There are several good hotels at St John's (capital of Newfoundland) to choose from but I would recommend either the Quality Hotel Harbourfront or the Battery Hotel & Suites. More information and photos of both hotels are available at my VT St John's page or the following websites:
If you are heading to Gros Morne National Park and needs to stop by the town of Deer Lake for a day due to transportation arrangements or to explore this lovely town, then you can consider staying at the Deer Lake Motel. This is a simple and cosy motel located along the Trans-Canadian Highway about few minutes drive from Deer Lake. Very importantly, it is located just across the Irving Big Stop petrol station, which is the waiting point for buses on the Port Aux Basque - St John's route as well as buses on the Corner Brook - Viking Trail route (including Gros Morne National Park). The food at the restaurant in the motel is tasty, especially the seafood dishes. More information and photos of Deer Lake town are at my VT Deer Lake page.
If you want to spend some days at Gros Morne National Park, then the Ocean View Motel should be a good choice because it is conveniently located at the town of Rock Harbour with a good view of the sea which is in front of it. Also, there are convenient stores and eating places nearby, plus the staff are very friendly. This motel is opened all year around unlike some other places which only open during summer to early autumn. More information and photos of Rocky Harbour are at my VT Woody Point page.
Barb and Randy made the four of us women feel right at home in the Newfoundland outdoors. The lodge was wonderful, the rooms were wonderful, the food was prepared especially for us, and the adventure starts here. If you want bear watching, kayaking, canoeing, boats, Vikings, Moose, fishing, good hiking, etc -- Newfoundland is the place to visit! We got a package deal.
Water view, peaceful, homey
We would suggest that you use Bed and Breakfasts when vacationing in Newfoundland. B&B's are normally in private homes converted for this purpose. Most of the ones we used were couples whose kids had flown the coop. Of course, B&B's must offer breakfast included in the room rate, and in NL, most breakfasts were full breakfasts featuring local cooking and not just continental breakfasts of hard buns.
We found that we received more personal attention in B&B's. We had people to talk to - both our hosts and other travellers. B&B hosts would give us advice about our next day's plans or point us in the direction of good restaurants for our evening meal.
The prices we paid ran from $50 to $70 Cdn. Generally the closer we were to the cities, the more the price was. Also the less expensive rooms normally involved a shared bathroom. Of course many B&B's are priced higher. We travelled with the province tourism guide which listed all the B&B's along with their ammenities and prices, etc.

I have only ever eaten at the Cartwright but I know in 2003 and 2004 the hotel experienced expansion and renovations.
The breakfast there was very good.
This is an important tip however because its the only hotel in Cartwright. There is also a bed and breakfast. If your travelling via the Labrador Coastal Drive or the provincial ferry system you may need accomodations in the Cartwright, Labrador area.
I remember my stay at the Amaguk Inn was very good and the food was very good as well.
5 comfortable regular rooms with a double and single bed in each room, desk and chair, cable, colour TV.
4 efficiency units with a double bed, electric range, refrigerator, and dining area in each room.
1 handicapped room with a double bed, desk and chair, cable, colour TV, fully wheelchair accessible.
1 single regular room with a double bed with a desk and chair, cable, colour TV.
Fully licensed dining room and lounge/bar.
Enjoy your stay at the Amaguk in Hopedale on Labrador's north coast!!!!
In Port Hope Simpson, Labrador I had the pleasure of staying at the Alexis Hotel on a couple of occassions.
The hotel is centrally located on the southeast coast of Labrador and the rooms are comfortable.
The hotel got a major face lift in 2003 with new rooms and dining area. Several of the rooms have amazing views of the area so ask about them when you make your booking.
Great restaurant view of the Alexis River and Port Hope Simpson harbour.
In the Labrador Straits region you will also find the Oceanview Resort. This resort has a nice restaurant, is very close to a provincial park and is recently renovated with some of Labrador's best rooms.
You will have a comfortable stay here. I provided a web site and telephone number for this location.
In the Labrador Straits region you will find the Northern Light Inn. It is one of Labrador's larger hotels with very clean rooms, a bar, great restaurant and in the tourist season a regular dinner theatre which makes for some great local entertainment. This is unique to this hotel and very entertaining.
I saw the dinner theatre on a couple of occassions now and it was great each time!
My stays at the Atsanik Lodge in Nain, Labrador have always been a bit of an adventure but I am encouraging you to have fun and relax. Go with the flo and adjust to northern service and hospitality.
The local lady "Sarah" is very well known and infamous for her customer service. The bar attached to the hotel is also a popular spot in Nain for a cold beer. It is smokey in there but you'll survive.
The hotel is also a great place to get a deal on a local Inuit carving. The carvers or their family will drop in on a regular basis and offer their carvings for sale.
