The staff was great but the room was super dated and the place smelled very smoky/cooking smells. The location in not on the coast and right in the middle of the industrial area. If that is what you are looking then great. If you are planning to stay here to visit Halifax don't. Didn't stay moved to a hotel in... More

I chose this hotel because it was affordable compared to places right in Halifax. You can take a 12 min. ferry for $2.50 to get to the heart of Halifax. They run until 11:45 pm. Kimberly at the front desk in the evening was very helpful in planning my itinerary to get most out of my time. She was the... More

Beware that some of the reviews here are clearly not of this hotel as it doesn’t have a pool (the one in Halifax does I believe). I booked here because it was the only place with decent reviews at around $100 anywhere near Halifax. The hotel is not bad, but it is not fantastic and the location is not close... More

The rooms are clean..sorta dated but clean at least. The breakfast buffet is your standard style for a motel...bagels..cereals..juice..coffee. You know the deal. Seems like a lot of construction type people stay there so that's why I don't understand the $120 per night price tag. Would rate it 5 if it were $75-80

Stayed here for work. The front desk staff were very friendly the room was very nice with a little Kitchenette. I was working night shift so I never had the breakfast. And the location is not ideal if you don't have a vehicle. But over all clean friendly hotel. They also have a small gym and a coin laundry. Which... More

Big chains have grand lobby's - who is paying for this. Nothing in the Coastal Inn is grand. Having said that, what is there is ok. One problem is that there is nothing automatic about the front door. Makes it difficult for people with mobility problems, or luggage. The person at the front desk can not help you if they... More
