Good room and clean. Pet friendly, traveled with dog (additional $20 fee). Convenient sliding door for outside access to unload/load car and great feature while traveling with dog. Convenient location as we did a quick drive to Peggy's cove and back and quick access to Halifax city center. Breakfast was good but with limited seating area. Pleasant staff.

The room was clean and in a nice hotel, with a big lobby and great staff. Rather disappointed in the location as we thought it was close to the lake and in a more quiet area of town. But, for one night it worked out fine.

Stayed here during a busy weekend as it was close to where we needed to be for a competition. Being a family that doesn't own credit cards by choice, we had to pay $200 cash deposit.

Stayed here for our honeymoon when it was Lakeview Inn. Thought we would return, not knowing it had changed hands. Our stay was okay but not like when it was Lakeview. It was comfortable but we had booked a king bed, got 2 doubles. We found it a bit noisy.

The Coastal Inn was a good little stopping point for us on our road trip through Nova Scotia. Out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Halifax but still close enough. We went to Peggy's Cove from there and it was just a short trip. The room was nice and clean, no complaints. Breakfast the following morning was very busy... More

It looks more charming than it is. It's a motel, decent but not charming or anything of the kind. Functional. Breakfast ends 9:29 AM on the button or else -- the clean-up lady is literally standing over you impatiently as you as you clean up whatever remnants from other guests (eggs and sausage are gone because they all got eaten,...
