My boyfriend and I stayed here after a flight cancellation during a winter storm, when all other hotels were booked. For a difference of only $20 from the standard room, we opted for a room with a king bed and whirlpool tub; this upgrade is a must. The bed was hands down the most comfortable that I have ever slept... More

We were caught in a storm at arrival at Halifax Airport and our regular hotel, where our car was parked, was booked solid. All airport hotels were to full capacity due to the storm and flight cancellations. Our regular hotel contacted Inn On The Lake and they had 6 rooms left. It was a 10 minute tricky drive, after we...

Just about the cutest place I have ever stayed at! I unfortunately only got to stay here for one night, but it was a great experience. I got there pretty late into the night after a long day of travelling and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rooms. The bed was amazingly comfy and the internet worked extremely... More

I had my second stay at Inn on the Lake in January 2015. We were part of a business group. This is an ideal location to get in and out of the cities of both Halifax and Dartmouth and it is near the airport. Being winter, I wasn't able to experience the grounds, but the interior of the Inn is... More

Clean, very nice place. Looks beautiful, every time we pass close to it my girls are asking to go there again... They liked it and we did too.

We chose Inn on the Lake because of its proximity to the airport and because of its location on a lake. it appeared to us that it might be possible to take a walk there after a long day in the car (NOT!) It is right on the highway and the pictures are rather misleading. The pool was much too... More

Dear Alleycat427, Sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations last June 2014. The Inn is located near the juncture of highways #2 and #102 which is clearly displayed on our web site map. We do not heat the pool to avoid heavy use of chlorine, which most guests appreciate. The Inn is located on 3.5 acres of parklands.... More

This is a very nice local inn near to Halifax. So if you don't want the craziness of the downtown area, with some beauty and quiet, this is your place. The inn is well kept with some very nice decor. Feels like a more personal place than a Hilton or a Marriott. Staff very friendly. Restaurant was excellent. Food is... More

Stay in September 2014 was not too bad. It sure is an old hotel and right beside a busy highway. We we're given two breakfast coupons with a value of $13.00 each. This was for the so called FREE breakfast. Don't exceed the allotted amount or you will pay the extra. My complaint is that we didn't get breakfast because... More

Dear Walter M, It appears we have a misunderstanding on what services are included with the rental of a room at the Inn and we experienced a break down in communications. The Inn is not obligated to offer free breakfast to any guests. We do not advertise or promote free meals. As a courtesy to guests who are leaving before... More
