For being in a rough area of Halifax, the hotel is situated in a nice location. It is not far from downtown; 5 minute drive. The room was really nice and clean, the bed super comfortable and the staff really great and accommodating. The website I had booked my stay, screwed up and had booked me for a random couple...

We booked our reservation 3 months in advance, but when we arrived there they told us we didn't have a reservation! We pulled out the printed copy of the hotel reservation confirmation and showed the gentleman at the front desk. He stared at it blankly for a few seconds and then told us that their computer system went down and... More

This is a really inexpensive hotel in a central area with lots of cute shops and restaurants around. Could definitely be a lot cleaner, especially the carpets. Quaintish place. Found the check in staff absolutely fabulous. It's not the the Royal York or Queen Mary but then you're not paying those rates.

Checked in staff were ok. The parking was only for few cars, not much lights in the parking lot. I got a parking spot though. The carpet was sticky, the plugs were loose. The breakfast room was crowded and not much selection with flies. The server wasn't friendly, we felt we were not welcome. Got this room with hotel.com for... More

we chose this hotel because of the reviews and they were right, you get what you pay for and the staff really could not care less. no larger than a stamp towels in the room because 'they laundry didn't come in and it's hit and miss when...' - after much asking and complaining, they finally gave us towels from another...

Clean and comfortable rooms, continental breakfast included and close to everything you will need to see and do. Wifi was sporadic but not a major issue and certainly did not mar our stay. Good place to stay and an affordable price.

My flight got cancelled and the inn was contacted to see if the owner would cancel my reservation out of courtesy as the person with most authority at the inn. I booked the room through Booking.com and was told that the owner checked her email several times a day. The people who answered the phone at the inn said they... More

Good value and continental breakfast offered. Friendly and helpful staff. Two minuses- no elevator, so travel light or arrange for help with large suitcases; WIFI did not work during our one night stay
