The place is an OK location to stay. We are staying 3 nights in total. The first night we stayed in your room that the bed was and very very noisy. We requested a change because of the bed. Also I noticed in both rooms so far that's the bathroom fans are not working and extensive wants to build up... More

This place is tired, tired, tired. The room was a good size but the smell of cleaning products and clatter and roar of the fan/air-conditioner were off-putting. On the positive side the price was attractive and the bathroom had been updated. However, the sleeping quarters showed a lot of wear.

We were vacationing in Nova Scotia for a week & needed a last minute place to stay for the night. This place was clean, the beds were comfortable & the price was decent for $89 a night. Next door to McDonalds & Tim Hortons. They have free wifi, however I was unable to contact.

I dropped in as I saw you had a decent star rating, I use the Canada Select star rating when I travel but I did not see you on the Canada Select website and I almost drove past. Not a bad property for the price, but the walls are thin!

If you are some one who has issues with mobility then the uneven steps might be an issue for you. The room had no amenities no ironing board ,coffee maker,hair dryer ect. Bathroom was super small . Internet service was horrible connection was spotty.

Stayed 3 nights on a room only basis. Room was clean with wood flooring, TV, seating area and ensuite bathroom. Comfortable beds and decent heating (important as it was minus 12 c). Shops and restaurants close as well as the impressive St FX University (the reason for our trip). Helpful staff and very personable as you'd expect from Canadians. A... More

My family travelled to Antigonish for my mother's funeral on January 20 and we all spent 2 night s at the Homeward Inns on James Street. The rooms were clean and comfortable and all together in one section of the motel, it was comforting that we could all be together. Staff were kind and courteous which made a difficult time... More

Very disappointing. The room is dismal, with patchy painted walls, grunge at the doorway and around the baseboard edges. Dampness below the window. Curtain hook off the track. Overhead light fixture with big exposed CFL lightbulbs, one missing. Bathroom grout is discoloured, as is the edge around the sink behind the taps. Generally very disappointing. Wish I'd looked further.

At the time we booked this hotel it was the only one available. No wonder! Beds were in bad shape and the bathrooms were badly in need of a good reno. Mouldy caulking and dirty grout. When we initially booked they offered 2 free breakfast per room. When mentioning this upon check-out they said they no longer offered it. But... More
