Don't waste your money!

by terbez72 on 22 Oct 2016 (Friends Traveller)

Terrible all-around. If I hadn't pre-paid months ago, I would have moved to another hotel. Mold in bathroom around toilet, hard and lumpy beds, on/off water pressure, iffy Wi-Fi. The room and décor are really old and needing updating. My friend (who was sharing with me) had no night stand or clock by her bed, just a floor lamp. The "continental" breakfast was poorly done, with low quality of food. The worst was that my husband was trying to get ahold of me on the last night we were there, Oct. 1...

Located 15 minutes from Halifax

by FVMTL on 18 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Confortable and quiet. Large parking lot. Rooms need renovations especially the bathrooms. The shower faucet was broken and difficult to use The Wi-Fi was very slow and intermittent, not very effective.

Older, but very clean!

We stayed here a couple of times in the past month. It is dated, older, bit always clean! The staff are always friendly, and accommodating. The restraint is great.... love the food and the freshness of everything! Great parking, good location. Having Laundry on site was an added bonus!

I'd have to agree with everyone else, maybe look elsewhere for lodging.

I'd have to say first off, that you get what you pay for - and this hotel was by a longshot the cheapest in the area and only 15min out of Halifax. Having said that, the first order of business was phoning countless times and leaving several messages we never did get an answer or a call back. We decided to count on finding vacancy there and kept driving towards it regardless because of the price. Once we got there and started talking to the attendant, we were offered no explanation for the la...
