Immediately had a bad feeling about this place.Arrived in the parking lot to see a distressed middle aged blond lady.Moments if not seconds later two Halifax police cruisers & policemen arrived.Certainly makes you think what is going on at this motel.There is somewhat of a language barrier & difficulty understanding the staff.Carpets & furniture are very dated & worn out....

Me and my parents stayed at this motel for two nights. Room was clean, and beds were comfortable. But if they can upgrade furnitures will be better. Although, there was a language barrier, stuffs were friendly and helpful. They printed out map for us and recommend restaurants.

I spent a night here in September, not a fortune. Our room was very simple and full of mosquitos. It took some time to hunt them down. Otherwise, the location is good, close to a gas station and only 20 minutes to Halifax airport. Bathroom okay, water pressure fine. I really appreciated that the motel staff allowed me to print...

Not sure what we were expecting given the price. When I checked in there were serious language barriers. They took my ID which is fine, but two of them spoke in some foreign language while pointing at different areas of my drivers license. Probably nothing, but it was uncomfortable to say the least. Another gentleman came in behind me and... More

Knowing that this was a cheap option place to go, this was the best price around for just looking for a bed. Breakfast was available, but we elected to skip it. The couch was dusty, the room was dated, and the wiring needed some updating. Struggled to turn on lamps and had very little lighting when it was available, but... More

This motel was a last minute booking where I needed a reasonably priced room the night before flying out of Halifax. The motel was cheap, quite tired but pretty clean. I would stay here again for an overnight stay. Close to food options and the shopping mall.

We stayed here in September. The room was quite dated and more than anything, the problem I had was all of the extension cords plugged into extension cords. Not a good thing. Very dimly lit too. Had problem reading with the door and curtains closed at night. Everything we wanted to see was across the toll bridge in Halifax. Next... More

This is an older property, and I think suited to trades visiting the city to work. Rates reasonable, and the chap at the front desk Robert was very helpful, answering our questions easily. Room was large and clean, needs some upgrades inside. We stayed two nights here, and we would stay there again.
