We needed to sleep in gander and only was a room in this hotel. It is terrible. You have to make check in in another hotel (half an hour line) there is no lobby, or food or any kind of service and we paid $200 CAD. They are more like appartments, very old and ugly building, terribly noisy, we couldn...

Don't forget your earplugs if you stay here. Noisy idiots partying at all hours of the night. More like a frat house than a motel. The front desk is located at the Albatross so there is no security to tell dummies that have no respect for others to keep it down. If you looking to party, slam doors and roar...

Had a great server Tammy. I had burger fries gravy caesar salad. Didn't like the fake bacon bits in the salad. The fries were great the gravy as well. But the burger lacked taste. Looked good but not great. Good amount of food for the money

We were pleasantly surprised. Checking in at the Albatross was a bit of a strange one & I wouldn't want to walk across with luggage. I loved the space. The rooms contained everything we wanted & needed. It was clean & the bed was comfortable. The meal at the Albatross was amazing & the staff were very friendly. There is...

First of all check in is at another hotel. Upon arriving for check in we noticed a sign that said breakfast special $5.95, but that was only for guests staying at that hotel. There is no restaurant at Irving West and you don't get any specials at the restaurant. We figured we would have should have got the breakfast special...

They offered to move us but since we were only here one night we decided to keep this room. However we realized we had no waste baskets and then 2...

Rose the cleaning lady was OUTSTANDING!! The rooms were always clean and tidy. we stayed for 6 nights and if we had to do another extended stay in a gander hotel this would be the place. Our room was close to the lounge and during the weekend we heard very little noise in the room.

I've stayed at the Irving West on many occasions during my visits to Central Newfoundland and have always enjoyed my stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and I’ve always enjoyed visiting the Legend's Lounge. This is not a 5star hotel but like I said it’s clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.

There was an Elks convention in Gander the night we needed a room. We were told the only place to get a room would be the Irving West...gee, I wonder why!?!?!?! I have no complaints about the staff. They were always friendly. I would say they are probably understaffed though. We requested some towels around 5pm. We were told the...
