It was nothing special, good location and friendly staff. I visited with children and it was close to the ferry. Needs an update in the rooms, but overall it's ok, I would not book again for the price.

This was my third time staying at this hotel ( the first time I stayed there it was called the Super 8). It is located right downtown Darthmouth. A 3 minute walk to the ferry to Halifax. The hotel was very clean on all three for my stays and the staff was excellent, but I feel I must add that... More

Very pleased with stay. Employees with whom I dealt were very upbeat and helpful. Underground parking was a plus. Remember to ask for a room with a view. It appeared that there was a recent "sprucing up.: It will be helpful when all the travel guides call it by the new name.

Although this is an older hotel it is comfortable, doesn't have a restaurant so the breakfast is continental and is included in the price... AND has the best customer service agent ever! her name is Katie, be sure to say "Hi" to her on your next stay.

I told Katie about this review and she was so happy and smiled. Thank you for taking the time to reference a team member. We are a limited service hotel in Dartmouth with amenities, however not limited in talent... A great alternative to Halifax with our location. Hope to see you soon. More
