We had spent a great day in Mahone Bay and Lunenberg. Unfortunately our room at the Days Inn in Bridgewater was inexplicably unavailable. So, we were suddenly without a hotel room! There were no hotel rooms available anywhere in the area. We ended up driving to Halifax/Dartmouth and got one of the last rooms in this motel! They really saved... More

This place should be shut down. If your looking for drugs or an escort then stay here, the place is full of them. And the attendance response, "they paid just like you did". It's fun to have taxis and drunks stopping by every half hour or so to get their fix. It's nice when they argue, slam doors and screen.... More

We did not have a good feeling for the place at all, The room was plain but OK. Some of the regular clientele leave a lot to be desired. This place appears to be a motel/low rental property. The first clue that we should not have stayed was the apparent drug dealing going on the in the parking lot. Cars... More

Immediately had a bad feeling about this place.Arrived in the parking lot to see a distressed middle aged blond lady.Moments if not seconds later two Halifax police cruisers & policemen arrived.Certainly makes you think what is going on at this motel.There is somewhat of a language barrier & difficulty understanding the staff.Carpets & furniture are very dated & worn out....

Me and my parents stayed at this motel for two nights. Room was clean, and beds were comfortable. But if they can upgrade furnitures will be better. Although, there was a language barrier, stuffs were friendly and helpful. They printed out map for us and recommend restaurants.

I spent a night here in September, not a fortune. Our room was very simple and full of mosquitos. It took some time to hunt them down. Otherwise, the location is good, close to a gas station and only 20 minutes to Halifax airport. Bathroom okay, water pressure fine. I really appreciated that the motel staff allowed me to print...

Not sure what we were expecting given the price. When I checked in there were serious language barriers. They took my ID which is fine, but two of them spoke in some foreign language while pointing at different areas of my drivers license. Probably nothing, but it was uncomfortable to say the least. Another gentleman came in behind me and... More

Knowing that this was a cheap option place to go, this was the best price around for just looking for a bed. Breakfast was available, but we elected to skip it. The couch was dusty, the room was dated, and the wiring needed some updating. Struggled to turn on lamps and had very little lighting when it was available, but... More
