“Belleville to Halifax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed down there in Aug for a week and we could not believe how much the staff care about us. Ever morning there was always a great smile and hello. Breakfast was great, always hot. The waffles were my favorite. Kimberley the Manager went out of her way one day for me in true down east fashion.So thanks again Kimberley. The girls that work for Coastal Inn should be very proud of themselves as every day our room was always clean and tidy and one girl was extremely nice and even sent time with our dogs and play with them and gave them a treat and even offered to take them out on her break time She will be in our hearts always. Front desk people were always there to talk too and help anytime of day or night. We are planning to come very shortly again This Hotel will always will give you the True meaning off down east friendliness Thanks Everyone.

Room Tip: There all nice

Hi Susan A.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor with regards to your stay with us in August. We appreciate all feedback from our guests and very glad to see you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for mentioning how clean your room was each day and how attentive our staff was at making sure you had everything you required. It truly was our pleasure!

It’s true, we like our “four-legged” guests just as much and so happy to see one of our team members spent time to play with your dogs and offer to take them for a walk on their break.

We are very pleased you enjoyed our “Authentic Maritime Hospitality” and I will definitely be sharing your comments with all our team.

Again Susan, thank you for all your kind words We look forward to seeing you again in the future if you ever visit our beautiful city again.

Just because the name changed doesn't mean anything changed. Tara & staff are still the friendly, accommodating and polite people they always have been for years here. New owners should be happy with the gems they inherited with buying this place. Can't wait to visit Halifax and stay there again!

Thx for a great stay!!!

Loved the hotel. One of the Top stays on our east coast trip. It was clean, modern, and spacious. If ever back again will automatically choose this hotel again. We would have stayed in one of their other locations but discovered them too late in our trip.

I liked the place and the beds were nice and the sleep was restful, when we checked in the first night. There was great service and people were friendly.

However, we checked out and checked in again. The second night we got the same room, however, I found my partner's hair on the sheets, the bathmat was still wet from the night before, and the water glass was cracked. I question their hygienic standards, I would just check ed the sheets over a second time. It was apart from that a very restful stay close to the highway and on the way to many other destinations around the HRM.

Hi aserendipitygal,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor with regards to your recent stay with us!

We are pleased you had a restful stay with us and found our staff to be friendly with great service. We are also please you found our location to be ideal when visiting the areas of interest.

I do apologize for the second night with the items you found upon re-check in and have brought this to the attention of our housekeeping staff as this is not a normal practice for us so thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Again, thank you for your comments and hope to see you again in the near future.

Like i said in the title, the place was clean, beds were nice and comfy. large LCD tv on the wall but the cable was not HD so kind of a let down, but not there to watch TV anyways. Can watch HD at home.

Friendly staff.

Ask for a room on the back side of the property away from the highway as it can get noisy with truck traffic.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are quieter than those facing the highway.

The front desk staff was so incredibly friendly both day and night. True maritime hospitality. There was no extra charge for having a dog in the room and the bowl at reception had complimentary bags with a poop bag and 2 dog cookies in it. Very welcoming and no issue taking dog through front and up the stairs. Breakfast included but the breakfast helper was not helpful when the waffle maker had an issue. She made it my issue instead of just fixing it.

Hi Kulbi,

We truly appreciate all your comments and thank you for taking the time to express your views on Trip Advisor as this enables us to make sure we are doing things right or to help correct any areas of concern.

We love having our four-legged furry friends stay with us and thank you for mentioning our complimentary “snack” bag for the pets and how great you found our front desk staff to be.

We apologize that our breakfast attendant was not as attentive as she should have been and will be sure to address your concerns to our staff.

Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again in the near future.

We stayed at the Coastal Inn for one night on August 6. We selected this hotel because it was in a convenient location for our reason to be in Halifax. The front desk clerk there for our arrival was very friendly and helpful. The room had everything that we needed. We especially appreciated the mini fridge. The king size bed was comfortable and I liked the idea of having a duvet with sheets on top and underneath it. I find bedspreads to be a bit of a turn off in hotel rooms because I have to question how often they get cleaned. The air conditioning worked great in the humid weather. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. We were there early and there was very few people then. We thought the price for our room was very reasonable for a stay in Halifax during tourist season. We have paid a lot more for a lot less in some of the prime tourist spots in Nova Scotia. We had no complaints during our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for comfort, cleanliness and value.
