From the desk staff who go out of their way to ensure their guests are accommodated (opening early for breakfast because my work started early and giving me real cream for my in room coffee) or the maintenance staff who shoveled the parking lot non-stop due to the incredible amount of snow and still fixed my shower and door locks...

It was ok for one night. Room was really small and left very little room to move around or put my things. It was obviously an old motel that had been renovated. When I first walked into the room, it smelled like cigarette smoke. I asked at the front desk and they assured me that it was a non smoking... More

The staff here are very kind and patient. My room was very comfortable and clean. A great breakfast in the morning too. It's convenient to have a parking location right in front of my room also. I usually stay here on my way through to the Digby/Yarmouth area on business.

The Best Western Aurora Inn is an older bungalow style motel. Rooms are cozy but average. Mattresses extremely soft. Unfortunately there is no breakfast (continental) included in your room rental. However there is a menu breakfast and dining room available. Being somewhat desolate, this is about your best bet for a meal. Price is above average for the accommodations you... More

We were surprised to find that this hotel was laid out as a motel rather than a high rise building but the advantage to us was we could park our vehicle outside our rooms which made unloading of luggage much easier. We arrived rather late to dinner in their restaurant so decided to try elsewhere in Kingston. The room was... More

I would like to give it an average as I don't want to overstate our experience, but I travel frequently and stay at nearly every major hotel chain in cities around North America, and this definitely wasn't average. Room #1 (our suite) was a bit grungy and we got to listen to the chef tenderize meat through the wall, over... More

Thank you very much for your comments regarding your stay with us. I apologize that we didn't meet our goals in providing superior customer care to our guests. Your note regarding the noise levels in your room are noted. Our dining room is usually closed at 8pm most nights, so hopefully your rest was not too disturbed. I will speak... More

My first visit to Canada and as I had work to do in Greenwood this was an ideal location. A 2 hour drive from Halifax international but easy to find. Pleasant and helpful staff and a big car park. The rooms are motel style and are comfortable with big beds and even a good coffee machine. Restaurant was closed on... More

This was a wonderful little motel! Very clean on the inside and the outside. Very friendly and helpful staff. Morning breakfast was an added bonus. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the in room coffee maker.
