My 7-year-old daughter stayed at this HoJo at the end of a 1200 km drive, in preparation for taking the nearby Digby Ferry. I was impressed: the staff were quick and friendly, the room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the in-room amenities were just fine. Having remembered family HoJo stays on childhood road trips, I expected the erstwhile... More

Desk staff are nice, housekeeping were nice when I spoke with them. Restaurant on site is slow but food is good for the price ( breakfast included and we had... More

When we first got there, we were getting settled when the maid used her key and walked in without knocking. She left, and came back very shortly after doing the same thing. She claimed she forgot to clean the microwave. What else did she forget to clean? The pool was green, our TV didn't work, the light fixtures were falling... More

Our fifth stay here at the Fort Howe Inn. As we expected Quiet, Comfortable, Friendly and knowledgeable front desk staff and includes a complimentary hot breakfast from a "you choose" menu. Indoor pool and hot tub were great. Most noticeable change since our previous visit 17 months ago was the improvement in the hotel restaurant. From being a outside contractor,... More

This hotel has a great location at a destination city on the Bay of Fundy. The oddly marked highways surrounding the hotel make it a little tricky to approach, but once you're there you realize it's central to both downtown and bay attractions. I saw several on line complaints about wifi connections, but we experienced no problems. The free sit-down,... More

The hotel is aging gracefully, and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was included and was available form the restaurant's short menu. It was more than adequate and we enjoyed the service. The quality for price was right up there.

We were welcomed by helpful and knowledgeable front desk staff that provided us with trip ideas and directions. The hotel is clean and well maintained for the era. Our room was comfortable, clean and the housekeeping staff clearly take pride in the day to day running and service provided. Our maid was a most pleasant young lady. We particularly enjoyed...
