May 22nd-24th 2015 Whenever we come to Halifax, we always stay at Chocolate Lake. Great place, clean, friendly, easy going and comfortable, staff go out of their way to help you, like to send out a thank you to Richard Comeau, (staff member) who checked us in, he was very friendly as is all staff, and he went out of...

This hotel is a Plus in the chain's opinion. The room was in the annex and did not seem up to Plus standards in our opinion. The bed was comfortable and there was a fridge. The restaurant is a real plus with a great complimentary breakfast and a good menu. Rob was a pleasure to work with in the restaurant.... More

Clean, friendly, easy going and comfortable. With an adorable dog on staff to boot. Close to the sights, short drive to downtown or hop on the highway with ease to see Peggy's Cove and more. I would stay here again.

I've been to Halifax couple of times and stay at the Best Western Plus Chocolate lake. The first time around I did it because of its name. It's a really well maintained hotel. The rooms are modern and clean. Chocolate lake is beautiful from the hotel rooms in the tower. The restaurant received a face lift since the last time... More

We flew through the night with very little sleep. Arriving at the hotel around 7 am, the person checking us in worked to find a quiet room and was able to get us into that room right away so that we could get some sleep.

I had hoped to book a couple of nights at this establishment, called the 1-800 number, to get an idea of price per night to compare to "Hotels.com". I was transferred to 'reservations' and explained that i'd like to get the price per night for a double occupancy for 2 nights. Emphasized just looking for a price. The female on... More

I traveled here with my parents and had a room on the eight floor overlooking the lake. Scenery was beautiful day or night. The facilities in the hotel were amazing! The gym/pool/arcade. The room was a great size with two queen beds and I never wanted to leave! Close drive into bustling halifax.

It was the first time my wife and I went to a Best Western Plus, we heard good things and bad things about this hotel brand. We liked the waterfront location and good view. Also the room was comfortable, wel decorated and very clean, so we can't complain on this side. Windows was the full size of the room wall,... More

Nice spot. The main hotel is rather posh looking. Staff are very accommodating & friendly. I was not impressed with the buffet breakfast, but if you are into that type of breakfast, you would probably like it. Did not eat at the restaurant as it offered nothing in the way of gluten free (which 2 Celiacs in my family require).... More

Went as a couple on May 2, 2015. Overall good experience. This hotel is a diamond in the rough - meaning it only had a 3 star rating on hotels.com but the customer experience rating makes it more like a 4 or 4.5 star. Warm reception upon arrival. We had a room with a king bed - comfortable and clean.... More
