“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

My family have stayed at this hotel many times in the past before the hotel across the street from them was built. They have a nice continental breakfast. Rooms are ok and they have a nice pool. It would definitely be my 2nd choice if I was staying in Bedford.

Hotel is a bit older and showing signs of wear but is generally clean. Only one elevator serving 3 floors so can be a wait. Guest computer is a bit too public. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Largest bed size is queen and rooms outfitted with mini fridge and old style TV's. Bathrooms are dimly lite but great water pressure. Hotel was quite busy when we were there so breakfast was quite crowded at peak time.
Would not recommend location if your day takes you into Halifax penninsula as the evening commute out of the city is not a pretty thing. Otherwise for access to south shore, points north and surrounding areas is very good. No restaurants in walking distance so car is needed; there is liquor store in adjacent strip mall.

Thank you for the review. Please allow me the opportunity to address several of your concerns with some highly anticipated and exciting news: New ownership has allowed The Holiday Inn Express Halifax-Bedford to make many significant changes over the next few weeks and months. The building exterior has been refreshed with new paint and landscaping is underway. Our guest computer area will be relocated and furnished with office supplies to better accommodate users. Various rooms will contain King Beds and ALL of our 98 guest rooms will feature new flat screen televisions by year end. For those interested, we are proud to also introduce a new key card system with upgraded door locks to allow our guests consistent access after a long day! We look forward to revealing our progress to you, and to all our valued guests!

I stayed at this hotel for a number of nights while working in the Halifax area. My room was very comfortable and well appointed. Bed was comfortable and very little road noise was heard even though the hotel is next to Highway 102.

Breakfast in the morning was wonderful with an excellent selection of both cold choices such as hard boiled eggs and cereals as well as hot food (eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, and pancakes you make yourself in a little machine, press a button and a pancake starts to cook). Hot selections varied a bit from day to day. Fruit was also available as was yogurt. Coffee was decent quality and good strength. Choice of four juices out of the machine. There was seating for about 30 people in the breakfast room and I didn't have any problem getting a table.

I would definitely stay again if in the Halifax area as long as I had a vehicle. The hotel is not located close to many restaurants or any nightlife and it's about a 10-12 minute drive into downtown. All in all, an excellent place to stay.

Stayed here on September 15 & 16 2011 while visiting the Maritimes. This is hotel is located a distance from the city center but is very convenient when travelling to Peggy’s Cove and many of the other attractions in this area. It is a clean hotel and the staff is great! It is located right next door to a Tim Horton’s coffee shop making access easy to get your morning caffeine fix!

The staff and their attention to your needs can only be described as touching. The front desk staff, the kitchen girls and the maintenance guys were quick to say good morning, how is everything, is there anything I can get for, do you need any help. It was just awesome. Somebody is doing a great job of training and it is very clear that the staff enjoy thier jobs which is a rare thing today. I would recommend this location to anybody, business, family, medical, etc.
Spotless clean inside and out and big smiles all around for a price that is more than reasonable. Keep it up. I'll be back again and so will my frieds.

We appreciated the large breakfast selection and clean tables. The staff and service were very good. My children enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot tub. The hotel played music out the front hotel speakers all night and woke my husband up several times as he was sleeping closest to the window, the hotel might consider turning this off after 10pm. The mini-fridge, microwave, and in room coffee maker was appreciated.
