3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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,...

Stayed 3 nights, fantastic place to stay out of the city. Rooms comfortable, staff very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was more than enough, great value for money. Just one small comment, in no way a negative - you can hear the people above moving around. Therefore I would recommend a room on the third floor.

My wife and I traveled to Halifax for a wedding this past weekend. We chose the Coastal Inn because of a great rate offered for a King Suite through Trip Advisor and because of the reviews. It was recommended to us by friends in the area to contact Coastal before arrival to make sure that there were no sports teams... More

I say good customer service because I alerted BJ that my suitcase was going to arrive later in the evening. When it arrived, he called and delivered the suitcase. I am grateful for his service. This hotel was right off the highway and easy to find. It was quiet and clean. There were occasional thumps, but I didn't know what... More

I came to Halifax along with 3 teenage girls to do some shopping for a couple of days. We usually stay downtown, but this location was fantastic and convenient!

As another writer already said, the definition of value is a combination of quality and cost. If that's the case, this Coastal Inn meets the criteria well. Firm (but not too firm) beds; friendly, responsive staff, downtown easy to find four miles away, and relative quiet (we had a crying baby next door that we only became aware of when... More

Service was great upon check-in. Room was clean and because we were on the 2nd floor, we were able to open the window for fresh air.
