    Staying at MU brought back many nice memories having shared a bedroom growing up and then our time away at university.Their free breakfast was amazing, lots of choice hot and cold. Delicious hot coffee, NFLD 's own brand Jumping Bean, available for sale everywhere in St. John's. Now that is brand support! We understand the hot breakfast feature was a trial. Please keep it going. The free WIFI was a bonus.

    It's a dorm room so your expectations should be tailored to that. During my stay there were upgrades in progress to the WiFi facilities on Memorial's campus that were frustrating because the Ethernet connectors in the room did not provide Internet. Since I was relying on having reliable Internet while in St. John's to chat with my kids this was very frustrating. This aside the communal washroom was reasonably clean though it wasn't clear how to turn the lights on in the showers or whom to contact when water pressure dropped to a trickle unexpectedly.

    The full kitchen is excellent. Room was hot and stuffy. No AC, which is uncomfortable during the summer. Great location in St. John's. Inexpensive compared to hotel, even compared to Motel 8.
