Even though I only have the world's worst, blurriest iPhone pics, I still feel compelled to blog about our stay at the Super 8 in St. John's last weekend. We were there for two nights while Jon attended a course.

(tiny, slightly grubby living room)
(reduced privacy bathroom area)
Price: Around $160 per night including tax for a "business suite," which had a separate bedroom, but was super duper small.
Bathroom: Pretty old-looking. It was the kind with a little room for the toilet and bathtub, and then the vanity was in the living area.
Pool: Yes. Great for babies and kids. The water is warm, and there is a baby section with really shallow water.
Breakfast: There is a continental breakfast with eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, yogurt. It was decent for a pre-brunch breakfast. I was loving the pre-made waffles that you put in the toaster.
Wifi: Yes, good.
TV: Good. We watched House Hunters International, my fav.
Location: Not downtown, which is where we usually want to be. But pretty close to shopping. Cohen and I were transportation-less for one day, so we took advantage of the Tim Hortons and Dairy Queen across the street.
Notes: So we have stayed at most hotels in St. John's, and this one is really good for the money when traveling with a baby. Pros: Room with separate bedroom so you can put the babe to sleep, and hang out in the other room. Pool for baby. Breakfast in the morning so you can give the little guy some oatmeal before you head out. Fridge in the room so you can bring some snacks. Really cheap compared to other hotels in St. John's. Cons: A bit dirty-looking. The carpeting in the room is covered in stains. The furniture looks like it's seen better days. For us (parents traveling with a toddler), the pros outweigh the cons. We will be back for sure.
