Was a good place to stay for the cheap price paid. The room was clean but the entire 3rd floors smells like cigarette smoke because the rooms on the second floor are smoking rooms so the smoke travels up. Also walked into the lobby a fee times to the receptionist taking selfish and watching shows/Netflix on her phone. But like...

We stayed in this Dartmouth hotel for one night and enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a king suite...much to our appreciation. The hotel is somewhat outdated but it's clean and has everything you need. The fridge and kitchenette were useful and the lovely simple breakfast was an included bonus. Wifi is also included in the cost of the...

For the price, this was a good option -- about $30 less than everything in Halifax. It's definitely an older property, and the rooms have an odd layout with some 45-degree angles. But, there was plenty of space, and a mini-kitchen (although the built-in appliances obviously date back to the 70's or 80's). The room could have been a bit...

Price was right for a cheap hotel closer to the airport....but, man this place needs a facelift. If you are looking for high end, this is not it...rooms smell, AC didn't cool the room, stove door would not open....and there also seemed to be steady stream of smokers hanging around at the front door...

The location is handy to both bridges & the ferry between Dartmouth harbour & Halifax harbour, & not far from the airport. The hotel is older & could use some updating, but is a good deal for the price. The room carpets could use a bit of cleaning. Overall ok compared to some we stayed at for more money. The...

The staff was great but the room was super dated and the place smelled very smoky/cooking smells. The location in not on the coast and right in the middle of the industrial area. If that is what you are looking then great. If you are planning to stay here to visit Halifax don't. Didn't stay moved to a hotel in...

I chose this hotel because it was affordable compared to places right in Halifax. You can take a 12 min. ferry for $2.50 to get to the heart of Halifax. They run until 11:45 pm.

Beware that some of the reviews here are clearly not of this hotel as it doesn’t have a pool (the one in Halifax does I believe). I booked here because it was the only place with decent reviews at around $100 anywhere near Halifax. The hotel is not bad, but it is not fantastic and the location is not close...

The rooms are clean..sorta dated but clean at least. The breakfast buffet is your standard style for a motel...bagels..cereals..juice..coffee. You know the deal. Seems like a lot of construction type people stay there so that's why I don't understand the $120 per night price tag. Would rate it 5 if it were $75-80
