This hotel is very conveniently located to both of the Halifax Yacht Clubs. The breakfast was good. Almost exactly the same as any other Best Western. The rooms were very clean, even in the pet friendly areas. They were, however, tired. The receptionists were super. There were some very strange fellow lodgers. Overall a very adequate hotel after 4 nights...

They gave us temporary rooms for one night.Made us move the next day. The view from the rooms n patio was awesome. The hotel is right in front of chocolate lake. They had...

Although it has the same uninspired mixture of browns, creams and greens that we see in too many mid-level North American hotels (do they hire the same decorator?), the Chocolate Lake hotel also has all the conveniences that we've come to expect from the Best Western brand - good-sized, clean rooms, in-site restaurant, varied breakfast items, in-house laundry. Service is...

We have stayed at this hotel several times. We find the facility to be clean and the service very good. When making the reservation the hotel accommodated a coupon application, which they did not have to do but did willingly. The breakfast is served hot and the only down side is having to wait for fresh food.

The hotel is very typical of Best Western Plus we have stayed so far - nice appearance and staff, good breakfast, spacious room. You will also love the free game room and varieties of breakfast. View of the hotel is amazing overlooking the lake!

Fairly typical hotel. Clean rooms, very comfortable bed. The room we had wasn't exactly overly spacious, but livable. The bathrooms don't have fans which is weird. Overall our stay was good. But the commute to downtown Halifax isn't the most convenient.

This hotel is out dated. The elevators are small and slow. The carpeting is very worn. The bed was ok but needed updated. The buffet breakfast was good. The restaurant served good fish and chips and scallops.

The rooms are spacious and clean and the pool and games areas were nice. The view from the room was wonderful and the staff was very service minded. We were not able to have dinner at the restaurant since it was full. It was crowded at breakfast and the buffe could be better organized. People walk in every direction and...
