We stayed at the hotel this past week-end for our nephew's wedding. The view from the eighth floor is amazing. The rooms were on the small side but very clean. The continental breakfast is excellent and the parking is free. Would definitely stay again.

The main reason my partner and I choose this hotel is because they allow us to bring our two labs. The backyard is perfect for letting the dogs stretch their legs and have a little run, plus the lake itself is gorgeous. I like the breakfast at the hotel as well. It's hard to believe you have access to a... More

If you get a room on the back of the hotel you will be right on the shore of the Chocolate Lake with a great view. There is a grassy area with a few picnic tables down next to the lake and the hotel has a large deck on the back with bar and dining when the weather is fit.... More

This is a solid, friendly Best Western about 30-45 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from downtown Halifax. Nothing fancy, but a comfortable room and generous hot breakfast makes it a good place to begin your visit in Halifax at a reasonable price. And there's a dog (chocolate lab, of course), which makes the place feel a bit like... More

This property was only a few miles from the waterfront and city of Halifax. It was easy to find from the highway. The property had a nice bar & grill with a happy hour. Since we missed lunch we checked in, dropped our bags and headed for a snack & beverage. Nice view of the lake. Room was clean and... More

Without a doubt the nicest "pet friendly" hotel we have experienced in extensive travel throughout Canada, Mexico and the US. Also one of the best full, hot breakfasts anywhere.It keeps me coming back, time and again.

I was in Halifax for a week Oct. 13 to 17th for work and stayed at the Best Western Chocolate Lake for the second time. My room overlooked the lake and it was beautiful. When not working, I had the opportunity to go for walks along nearby trails. The room was very clean and spotless. The only complaint I would... More

My stay at he hotel was ok. the beds were a bit hard and the room was a bit musty, so I did have some asthma issues. there was a wedding that was happening at the hotel and parking was a huge issue. The staff were unable to arrange for all of the paying customers to have parking.

We have stayed at the Best Western Chocolate Lake several times. Each and every time we are completely satisfied. It is clean, the staff friendly. The views of Chocolate are wonderful. I love to sit down by the lake and just enjoy the peace and quiet.

Best Western Plus Chocolate lake hotel is a clean and comfortable place in a safe location. Rooms facing the lake is really nice and gives you the pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast is good but a slight improvement will earn a rating of '"excellent"
