Great stay. Room was very clean and the view from the balcony was fantastic. Rooms were very, very quiet. Breakfast in morning was enough to get our family going. Very close to the ferry. There is not a lot to do in downtown Dartmouth. I was worried a bit about the location, but everyone seemed to be budget travellers like... More

We stayed for 3 nights and loved it! Room was comfortable, enjoyed coffee on balcony in mornings, comfortable 2nd floor lounge, great staff! Wifi never worked in our room but I enjoyed relaxing in 2nd floor lounge, short walk to harbour ferry, breakfast was just enough to start the day off right. Appreciated the garage parking as the area seemed... More

Very impressed with the hotel and staff. They made our stay very enjoyable. Would stay there again if back in Halifax area. Will gladly recommend this hotel to any one looking for a very convenient place to stay, close to transit (five minute walk to the ferry that runs between Halifax and Dartmouth)

Awesome room for the price. Best value from Yarmouth to Halifax via the south shore. Katie was amazingly helpful. We showed up on bicycles and it was no problem. We got in right before sunset and the view was gorgeous.

Hotel: The hotel from the outside does not look so great. The balconies are designed so that you can see the people on balconies below yours, and the people on balconies above you can see you, much like a pyramid design. The lobby is a nice space with vending machines and nice chairs and desks. The breakfast area is nicely... More

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

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
