My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Halifax. Our room was very small, 2 twin beds but was sufficient for what we needed it for. We were out of the room most of the time. If you have a lot of luggage it may be too small of a room. It was clean. There was a...

Upon arrival, we were a little concerned about the area/surroundings, but after midnight it seemed to really quiet down so we caught a few winks prior to our very early morning flight out. Front desk personnel were professional and accommodating to our needs. The hotel is very old and could use some updating. Overall, it was reasonable.

I was in a double bed room for a night in this Hotel. The price was fair considering its location and a well served breakfast. We got ample parking space and quite friendly people on the front desk. We had a good night walk to downtown .

We weren't sure what to expect and on first glance were nervous as we were staying for four nights but we were pleasantly surprised. It is not fancy (price point should tell you that) but it was clean and the staff were friendly. The beds were actually really comfortable. The air conditioning was welcome during the heat wave we were...

For being in a rough area of Halifax, the hotel is situated in a nice location. It is not far from downtown; 5 minute drive. The room was really nice and clean, the bed super comfortable and the staff really great and accommodating. The website I had booked my stay, screwed up and had booked me for a random couple...

We booked our reservation 3 months in advance, but when we arrived there they told us we didn't have a reservation! We pulled out the printed copy of the hotel reservation confirmation and showed the gentleman at the front desk. He stared at it blankly for a few seconds and then told us that their computer system went down and...

This is a really inexpensive hotel in a central area with lots of cute shops and restaurants around. Could definitely be a lot cleaner, especially the carpets. Quaintish place. Found the check in staff absolutely fabulous. It's not the the Royal York or Queen Mary but then you're not paying those rates.

Checked in staff were ok. The parking was only for few cars, not much lights in the parking lot. I got a parking spot though. The carpet was sticky, the plugs were loose. The breakfast room was crowded and not much selection with flies. The server wasn't friendly, we felt we were not welcome. Got this room with hotel.com for...
