Stephenville is a small town of 8,000 people which is located in the southwestern part of the island of Newfoundland in the scenic St. George's Bay area. There are not a lot of hotels to choose from so we borrowed a few from nearby Corner Brook which is about an hour's drive away. I checked online reviews for all the hotels on this page and they are all suitable places to stay.
