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

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.

Stayed at this hotel for a horse show. Plenty of space in the parking lot for a trailer. Very nice staff. Rooms clean and comfortable. Beds were very nice. Older style motel converted to a Best Western. Good location overall. Restaurant on site which is nice.

When we stayed it was a great room, the beds were very comfortable and the staff was wonderful. There complimentary breakfast was very good with lots of choices. I will stay there again. Great all around.

I was lucky to find this quaint hotel on the Fundy side of Nova Scotia. I found many Bed & Breakfasts in this coastal region but not may hotels. B&Bs often have a 7-day advance cancellation policy in the summer. Since my plans were uncertain, I was more comfortable booking with the Best Western with a 3-day cancellation policy. This... More

At check-in the attendant was very friendly; however, we could've done with only one anecdote about stays elsewhere, rather than two or three. This is a standard style of motor lodge on the outside, though the rooms inside are nicely decorated. The room was clean, and the bed offered a good night's sleep. Nothing exceptional about the room, but certainly... More

I was happy with the rooms and restaurant but was disappointed with the internet it was slow and sometimes did not work. It seemed like an average motel one level and really nothing to do there. Not much room in the double rooms and it was noisy because of the four way stop just down the street.

The staff is what made our stay at the Best Western Aurora Inn so pleasant. They were very friendly and helpful. The room itself is very basic, but clean. With Tropical Storm Arthur approaching, the power went out for a bit in the early morning, but it was back on for breakfast.

Check in went smoothly room was ready on time - the hotel is really a motel - all rooms are drive up - the rooms have a good size and the beds were very comfortable - and two queens rather than two doubles - TV is decent size and reasonable selection - shower has good water pressure - and had...
