Affordable price, clean modern room, quick check in. No issues during weekend. Free breakfast which had lots of selection. I only had coffee but the food looked fine, lots of choices. I am sure it would be a great way to start the day with kids to save time and money.

This hotel offers fully renovated rooms, modern and clean. A sweeming pool and Jacuzzi and even a loundry room and jym we used. Some very helpful stuff at the reception. Comfortable location to both badford and Halifax and the surrounding shopping centers and restaurants (We did have a car...).

The room we stayed in was a very good size. The room was spotless and the beds were super comfortable. All staff were excellent!! The pool is a bit small but not necessarily a bad thing. Breakfast was very good and the ladies at breakfast kept everything well stocked. I loved our stay at this Holiday Inn!!

Well, this is our new "go-to" hotel for Halifax. The beds are so comfortable, we didn't wake up until 10:30 a.m. and missed breakfast. When I stay at a hotel, I don't like wandering around the room wondering what I should unplug so I can charge something or plug in the iron if I need to use the ironing board....

On a business trip out to Halifax and of course I choose the reliable HI express chain. . A lovely refurbished hotel with a great bed and the wonderful hot breakfast. Nice comfy bed with lots of pillows and new funky work area for computing. But...... A new 42 inch flatscreen with coax analog tv channels. No HD ...SHAME !...

This hotel is now our favourite when visiting HRM it's close to downtown as well great for exploring the whole area and only 30 minutes away from Peggy's Cove. The rooms are well laid out with in room Keurig instead of coffee makers.. free breakfast is well appointed with something for everyone and kept well refreshed

This is a nice low cost option for staying in Halifax. Right off the highway and relatively new. The rooms are clean and a good size. The pool and slide was a big hit. The service was friendly and very helpful. A free breakfast is included and it was pretty good with hot and cold options.
