Some of the features are worn, but others have been updated. The beds and the room in general are quite comfortable. Friendly staff. Nice location, overlooking the water and a boardwalk. Close to the cruise terminal.

We used this hotel as our launching point for an excursion to Cape Breton, which is good if you only want to see part of the island. In our case, we were looking for a day drive before heading back to Halifax. The hotel was great - very new and clean. Our room was quite large, and had 2 large... More

The hotel is located right on the harbor and the architectural design affords each room a great view. Hotel staff were pleasant and professional. Management is friendly to Motorcyclists. I was allowed to park our HD under the portico out of the way of other guests. There is a good restaurant on site. Our server Warren, was prompt and attentive.... More

I stay at a number of Holiday Inns and always have a pretty good experience, and consistently good service. The rooms aren't amazing, but they are always clean, and the front desk staff i always willing to help.

Our room was lovely & spacious with a super water view. All of the staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. There is a pub downstairs that serves a fabulous steak, we ate there a couple of times, they will also do room service if you prefer. A great value, clean, modern hotel with everything we could...

Pretty good place to stay. Great harbour front views. Very close to all your down town stores and simple place to find. Only down turn of this place was the lounge was directly two floors under my families room and on a Friday night. The live band doesn't shut down until midnight. Not so good for the sleeping kids but... More

This hotel is located on the Esplanade adjacent to the downtown core. Many good restaurants, pubs and a casino within easy walking distance. The breakfast buffet is very good if you like a large breakfast. The on-site pub offers moderately-priced food, with good service. This is a good place to stay for the cost of the rooms.

The hotel was nicely themed and decorated and the rooms were beautiful and clean, but I would skip breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and pub, and go support somewhere local. The food wasn't very good, and the waitress was uncomprehensive of me. Other than that, it was good.
