Booked a stay for one night for my daughter and her friends. Check in was promt and friendly. Went to the room which was clean as expected. Kids get dressed and head to the pool to only find that it was closed. Was not made aware of this at the time of check in and when questioned seemed like the front desk was not aware. Checked out but lost a nights stay. But did receive a call a few hours later that it was now open. Seems like this location is full of problems as I stayed here one year ago and had a horrible experience and this was a complementary night stay to make up for the mistakes before. Read the reviews as they have many complaints and I would recommend staying some where else.

Good Morning BABarryB Unfortunately the issue with the pool was the filter . The filter broke down that day and the pool company worked all day until 8 AM in the night to get it working . I m happy the staff informed you that it was working unfortunately things like this are out of our hands. But we worked fast to get the pool up and running . Sorry you weren't happy with your staff because of the recent flood we are going through alot of renos. Merry Christmas Carmella

Lovely hotel. Very well maintained and super friendly staff. Check in was easy and fast. Room was clean and modern. Hotel was easy to find. Gym and breakfast bar were available. They also ensured many families and pets had a place to stay during the recent evacuation due to forest fires. Amazing.

Absolutely appalled. Worst customer service experience as well as worst overall experience. Dirty pool, 6 cop cars at the hotel in one day, late night parties in the parking lot, constant smell of weed. Mouse ran through room and absolutely torture to try and get moved elsewhere. Terrible customer service, if you want to pay a lot of money to stay at a sketchy shelter, this is your spot.

We booked this hotel 6 weeks out. Week before trip the front desk called us.... basically pushed us out of our veteran rate, questioned whether we had proof. They called us twice.... we felt uncomfortable so cancelled reservation. Went back in online to see if they were sold out and wanted to rebook at higher rate and indeed the hotel was full. We just rebooked at the Marriott. Won't be back.

Beware booking here! We arrived to find random people sitting in the parking area drinking beer and smoking pot. This place appears to be being used as some sort of shelter, as it became very clear that people were living here. This place is in a sketchy neighborhood, and practically on top of a busy highway. The front desk staff was EXTREMELY rude and clueless. This place was so dicey we didn't even stay. We canceled our reservation, and had to scramble to get a place to stay at the last minute. I can't comment on the rooms, but can only imagine. IHG corporate needs to investigate this place, and can hopefully make that happen

Good Morning palmspringssjps Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit. First of all the guests you're referring to are not from a shelter they are victims of a fire that happened in late May early June. Our community lost 268 homes and apartment buildings . They are allowed to smoke and have a drink at the picnic tables on a beautiful summer day . We are right off the highway as we list on our website. The front desk staff isn't clueless or rude They were trying to help and make sure you received all your points back from IHG . I think that was great of them and very smart because if they just cancelled your room you would of not received your points . Instead they called IHG sat on the phone for 45 minutes to make sure you received every point you spend. They were making sure because if not they were personally going to deposit the points for us. I personally believe this is exceptional customer service . Enjoy your trip in beautiful NS Carmella

Recently we were displaced because of the floods in Halifax. I left my dentures in a disposable cup on the counter, went to my work out and came back to them missing. Housekeeping had been there in the meantime. They take zero ownership. It is a 1700 replacement price. Not sure how they can take ZERO responsibility for an item they threw away. The managers were so rude and awful to deal with. DO NOT stay at this hotel. I will never stay at a Holiday Inn after the way we were treated.

Hi Kristen I m a little confused I thought your son was here with his girlfriend and he lost his teeth. We have mentioned several times on all the sites we have reached out to your son as well as IHG the teeth were not found . The housekeeping department went through the room , the garbage cans and the actual garbage bags there were no teeth. Unfortunately hotels aren't responsible for lost items , we provide safes for valuables in the room. We feel bad he lost his teeth but they weren't located anywhere in the hotel . Thank you Carmella

My room was cancelled without warning and had to rebook the room. The elevators not working, room was on the 3rd floor. Looked to be maintenance being done on the hot tub so that was not available. There was too much chlorine in the pool just by walking into the room it was burning my eyes out. Pool was cold. Breakfast was great. It was not worth the cost of accommodation. Worst hotel experience. I will no longer stay at a hotel Inn

It doesn't get any better than our stay here. They went beyond our expectations. We found everyone very helpful and willing to go beyond their job duties. The room was modern; clean and lovely. Very well-planned layout. The location was the best for restaurants and traveling into the pier and city of Hallifax. We got bus passes, and it was easy to take the bus with a stop right outside the hotel. We took side trips by car to see the other areas and it was all very easy. A very well-run Holiday Inn Express and we strongly recommend it.

We have stayed at Holiday Inns before, and expected similar experience. We had accidentally booked an accessible room, but enjoyed the extra space and spacious bathroom. Upon entering the room, it had a funky smell, maybe from the carpeted area. You can smell it immediately upon entering the room. We bought plug in air fresheners and Fabreeze to mask the smell, which helped. The hallway smelled of mould and urine. The first day, we realized that this hotel was being used to house displaced families or homeless people. Early morning and late evening, I heard screaming and crying of children’s voices next door to us. We even observed children wandering the halls, unsupervised. It felt as if I was in a residential apartment building. Would I stay here again? Most likely no.
