We had a lake-facing room for two nights. The room was a bit smaller than the photos suggested, but it was fine otherwise. The onsite restaurant was good, with a decently priced bar included. The hot breakfast included in the morning was a bit short on variety, but was perfectly fine and tasted good. The view of the lake out... More

Lovely room overlooking the lake but just above the central air conditioning for the hotel and very noisy. I would stay here again but choose a room away from the very loud huge air conditioning system outside. Breakfast choices were excellent and overall a very nice place to stay. Just choose a room away from those huge systems.

Reasonably priced, great location and friendly staff. Breakfast was plentiful, warm and attentively monitored. Check in was easy and staff were helpful with directions. We loved that it's location made it easy to cruise down the south shore and up the eastern shore. Traffic was minimal, compared to similar locations in other cities. It was in a neighborhood, not what... More

The location on Chocolate lake was a surprise to us. Finding a full-service hotel in a park-like location was a big bonus. The included full breakfast was fully satisfying. Free parking is another plus rarely found today.

Came in late, reception was friendly and considerate, and got us checked in a to the room in no time. We had a beautiful view, they were very pet friendly, room was really clean, and the bed was sooo comfy. Awesome.

Excellent choice for a budget stay in Halifax. Mins of driving/taxi (up to $15) to downtown. Clean, comfortable. Very friendly staff. For dog lovers Coco is a very unusual and very nice "feature" of the hotel. Nearby lake makes the stay very pleasant: all our meals in the hotel restaurant we got on the terrace overseeing the lake. Restaurant menu... More

As a customer of Best Westerns, my husband and I were disappointed that we could not be accommodated with a view of the lake. The description when making the reservation made it seem that every room faced the lake so I did not feel I needed to indicate a specific preference. The young lady tried to accommodate us, but the... More
