The hotel is located just few minutes away from Alderney Landing. If you want to travel to Halifax or stay around the downtown Dartmouth, I would stay at the hotel. However, the last time I stayed at the hotel, I didn't enjoy the experience at all. It took forever to get warm water from shower, the room I stayed was... More

Thank you for your comments, and we do have a great location. I am not sure of why during your stay there was a water issue. Maintenance have been advised. More

The area, isn't the most family friendly (a little sketchy) but the hotel and proximity to the ferry was great. The room itself was clean and big enough for the three of us. The front staff and housekeeping were all very nice and did a good job. We had a room on the third floor on the ocean side. It's... More

The area in which the hotel is located is an established area of downtown Dartmouth. It may seem like an sketchy area, but in fact it is safe. Thank you for staying with us, and we do have value, great location. More

We stayed here one night, took our bikes over to Halifax on the ferry and rode forever on the waterfront all the way to an enormous park and back. The rate we had at the hotel was very inexpensive. We had a big room with a balcony facing off the side as all the harbor side were taken. It had... More

Stayed here for a 2 night stay upon returning from Halifax Airport (which was about a 30 min. drive) (apparently this used to be a Super 8). The room was big and well laid out but it was old and dingy (sheets were clean). The bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean but was also worn out and tired looking (we... More

Our family of five checked in for a two night stay. We did not expect a 'hilton' experience but did expect a clean room based on the reviews. Needless to say when we went to sleep, my daughter placed her hand under her pillow to find some dry encrusted brown material. Leave it to your imagination what it most likely... More

As I arrived at an awkward time with an even more awkward method of arranging a reservation, absolutely no consternation came across the front desk attendant I was greeted by, her name being "Helen". Her display of professionalism and genuine empathy were enough to make me feel taken care of, let alone what she was able to work out for... More

Clean, spaceous, well equipped rooms. Comfortable beds. Professional & friendly staff, (esp. Katie, Julie, Emily & Joe). Only one block from the Dartmouth/Halifax ferry. A beautiful 8 minute ride to Halifax. Well stocked breakfast bar. A great value for your money. Underground parking available for a small fee. I stayed for 5 nights and look forward to returning.

The location was great, It was near the ferry terminal to Halifax. The beds were horrible and there is not enough plug-ins. Breakfast selection was good but selections were often empty. Our overall experience was good.

Having stayed with you a few times over the last years I ordinarily rate you as "good".....but this time I said average factoring in 3 situations: 1. the room was clean, the bed comfortable but I did have to ask for more small towels at the front desk and the breakfast was, as usual, average....2. the service and friendliness of...

The hotel had me a little worried when we pulled up but the helpful gals at the front desk had no problem letting me see the room before I committed. The rooms are a tad on the small side and old, but very clean. I think if they were to replace the mattresses with some newer ones, it would be... More
