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

We wouldn't stay anywhere else! The rooms are comfortable, clean and perfect for a good night's rest. The Snow Queen's breakfast menu is excellent and the coffee is great. They are very accommodating to those who need a gluten free menu. Great service all around and we highly recommend the Homeward Inn to anyone who wants a great place to... More

Pearl, the receptionist, was very helpful and checked us in quickly. She upgraded us all so that we could be close to our friends which would make unloading the luggage easier for us. Our room was huge will lots of extras and we enjoyed a good night's sleep. We were given breakfast vouchers for a nearby restaurant which saved us... More

Stayed 2 nights. Gotta say although it's not a five star hotel. It is great hotel for your dollar. Came in at night. The receptionist Pearl was a real treat. Helpful and hospitable. For our family it was just what we needed. A clean room to lay our heads. Free internet was a bonus. Would stay again.

Large sign outside says $89.95 with two breakfasts. When I asked for the room, I was told "that is for only one bed." It doesn't say that on the sign and two men checked in behind me and got two beds for the advertised rate. The wi-fi in the room I was given didn't work. The offered another room where... More

Great location only minutes from Downtown and close to the University. Everything you need is within walking distance. I enjoyed my stay. 2 Queen beds, A/C, clean rooms and a great receptionist named Pearl who greeted us with a warm welcome and smile. She was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is also included. Great value for your money. Thanks Pearl... More
