Stayed here 3 times to date. You have a fantastic view of Halifax, I dont think it gets any better. The rooms are simple but the breakfast is good and they each have a cool balcony. Its a sweet place because its cheap and really close drive to downtown Halifax! We just cabbed when we wanted to go clubbing!

If you have any other option, please take it. The rooms are draughty, and when we had a driving rain we ended up with puddles inside our room. The rooms are not well insulated, and the heaters are extremely loud and functionally offer "on" and "off" as the only settings (there are degrees of heat but not such that you... More

A very comfortable queen bed and pillows - at last, after 21 hotel beds. Unfortunately, breakfast was not available for guests due to renovations - bad timing on our part. There was a laundry on site, but we did not utilise it. Underground carpark for guests with a suitcase trolley and lift access. From our room # 611, we had... More

Stayed here for 3 weeks. Room was clean and included a kitchenette with a mini fridge, microwave, and a 2-burner stove, along with cutlery, dishes, pots, pans, etc. It's about a 5 minute walk to the ferry terminal to Halifax - which is a fantastic way to commute. The location was the big draw of the Ocean View for me... More

stayed here for a conference overnight. The room was clean , nice view and the staff were always pleasant. The room rate included a breakfast and not your usual fare. Hot food, and lots of it in the dining room. They also catered the conference and everything was perfect

I have visited Halifax on many occasions. I have stayed at different hotels (both sides of the harbour) during my visits there. Although this hotel has some signs of aging....it provides it's guests with a much quieter and safer setting than downtown Halifax. Each time I booked this hotel (for a weeks stay) I asked to have a harbour view... More

A friend shared a Groupon for this hotel and we booked and paid for it. When we arrived- no record at the hotel. The desk clerk was very nice and accepted my saved receipt on my iPad from the Groupon site. We got the last non-smoking room with a terrible view of buildings away from the 'ocean' aka harbor. Underground... More
