I went to Halifax for few days with my wife we stay at Lake City Motel, it was a great trip. The Motel is good, their staffs are friendly and nice. The room is very clean and comfortable. The furniture need to update otherwise we are happy about everything especially the quiet nights.

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.

The rooms were very tidy, the beds were comfy, looked like new paint on the walls. Older style rooms but saw no bugs or had any weird smells. AC worked great, parking out front of rooms, convenient off the highway, gas station & small restaurants close by. Asked the staff about doing laundry the one man said in the basement... More

We stayed for four nights recently and found the Lake City Motel to be a great find. Granted it's not in Halifax, but it's a short drive over the bridge and the price is right. The rooms are clean and spacious with a table, fridge and microwave. The bed is comfy and the bathroom is new and spotless. There is... More

Very clean...cheap and convenient however very noisy. This hotel rents out their rooms weekly and monthly to people working and going to school in the area which makes it very noisy with the comings and goings of the people living there. Car doors opening and closing (4:30am)...hotel room doors slamming etc. Did not get much rest.

Clean, big and restful room. Some bathroom tiles were chipping off and we had to run the shower for a couple minutes before getting hot water, but overall everything was fine! The motel is far enough for Main St for it to be quiet at night. Not quite far from Halifax too. Management is super friendly, they even sent us... More

Lake City is not something you want to spend a lot of money on. It is, however, clean, quiet and restful. It's a motel left over from the 60's/70's era, but it has survived. The management is friendly and honest. The price is right for the type of motel. It's close to a large shopping mall and plenty of places... More
