2016 National convention was held in the conference rooms at the hotel. Even though the hotel was obviously under massive renovations, the staff took very good care of us. The rooms were clean. The walls are a little thin, as I could hear the people next door to me talking. The conference rooms are nicely spaced out and separate from...

We recently stayed at this hotel for a Christmas party for one night. The hotel is currently under renovations which is a good thing, because overall the rooms, hallways etc are very tired looking. They seemed to be cleaned but they were just tired looking, dark and showing wear and tear. The ballroom was quite nice and the food was...

I stayed at the HI Harbourview for 5 nights as I was in Dartmouth for the week on a course and was told that there was a preferred rate. That said, the preferred rate was still quite high considering the extensive renovation of the property, and albeit I didn't hear much in the way of noise (mainly due to the...

We had booked this hotel the last night of our holiday to use loyalty points. We were a bit apprehensive on arrival as there was a notice up to advise of extensive upgrade work ongoing but we had no noise or disruption from that. Our room was on the 5th floor and had a balcony with wonderful view over to...

Beds were pretty comfortable and rooms were fairly clean but the whole hotel is definitely dated! Under construction but not a lot of noise or signs of it! The food I believe at the restaurant could be great but it was very slow there and the food was not fresh! The main server was very adamant that they were closed...

Booked two consecutive nights for a wedding taking place in the same hotel. This hotel is very dated and should have gone through a major renovation years ago. It is also sold to another chain but it is still staffed by Holiday Inn employees. It is obvious to see the higher ups are not spending a dime on repairs. Desk...

This was the first of two separate visits to this hotel within one week. It is conveniently located across from Halifax but undergoing major reservations. We booked a king room through Air Canada Vacations/Orbitz about three weeks prior but were told that due to construction changes they had no king rooms. This is poor management to let the construction firm...

Nice hotel from the outside but the renovations are making the place a mess. Jackhammers at 8:00 AM are not my idea when I am on holidays. Restaurant staff were great but they are working in a little whole, no on tap beer, limited supply of anything. Worst Holiday Inn I have ever been in.

I have never had to pay for parking before. This is as annoying as having to pay for your first suitcase on flights. Also, internet password did not work for most of the time we were there. Finally, all elevators were out of service at checkout.
