“Very Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this Best Western during the initial stage of our Maritime visit. We appreciated the proximity to Halifax ( about 10 minutes) by car. I really enjoyed the pool and the fitness rooms. These areas were very new, and clean, with great shower and change areas. My only suggestion is for the hotel to install shower shampoo and conditioner holders so that one doesn't need to bring the bottles from the room. Breakfast was adequate and we ate in an area normally used as a restaurant during the day. The view of the lake from the breakfast area windows was lovely, and had the weather been warmer, we would have enjoyed sitting at the outdoor tables overlooking the lake. Priced reasonably, we would definitely stay here again if ever in Halifax.

I stayed 6 nights here during October. I found the service good, food good and accommodation very good.. The cost was very reasonable. Only disadvantage for me was that it was a bit far out of the city. Taxi service and bus service very efficient.

Great rooms, great staff, great amenities, great facilities. Perfect location. Rooms are a good size and very clean. A bit of wear here and there. However the overall cleanliness of the property forgives it. A guaranteed quality stay in this beautiful town. A great location within walking distances of a lively area and you can easily take the bus at the door that brings you everywhere.

We have stayed at this property a couple times now, and it is truly a wonderful hotel. We love the location, the friendly staff, and the Bath & Body Works amenities. The beds are comfortable and the hotel looks brand new inside and out. Very well maintained. We are so grateful that upon check-in after a late night flight, we were greeted with an upgraded room to a suite. We will be back soon for another long weekend!

The Best Western Chocolate Lake hotel is a very nice, central place to stay on a visit
to Halifax. The views of the lake are beautiful, the chocolate lab is friendly, and the
staff is friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, the beds divine, and the bedding
very nice.

Prices are reasonable and they have a buffet breakfast included.

A bonus is the terrific fun of negotiating the "rotary" or "roundabout" traffic circle just down
the street. Always a challenge. Great stepping off location for Halifax, and South Shore
excursions. The fall colors were incredible and the weather was sublime.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.
