I called this hotel directly to book an overnight stay with family on Saturday, August 20. I do not like to book with 3rd party agencies in case we have to cancel. The front desk was busy so they switched me over to reservations. When I arrived at the hotel, I was told that I must have booked the incorrect... More

Wonderful stay here recently, minus a few minor quibbles. This property just reopened and is one of the first in Canada to feature the new Holiday Inn Express design. Have to say that I was pleasantly surprised; the design is clean and fresh, and solid amenities and comforts (USB chargers next to the bed, Keurig coffee machines in room, pool... More

This is a fairly new property and we found everything to be in very good condition. The hotel is easy to find just off of the main road although you do need to take a side street to get to the entrance. The room was very large. We had a one bedroom suite with a living room and bedroom. The... More

Stayed overnight enroute to Southeastern NS. Hotel looks brand new, very clean interior design. I agree with a previous reviewer that it has the Scandanavian lines of IKEA. I also agree with another reviewer that there are many, many more charging plugs than most other hotels. However, I also must join the chorus that the breakfast mayhem is a problem.... More

Rooms were great. Recently renovated and exceeded expectation. we had some noisy neighbours on the first night - if hotel management had used better soundproofing in the renovations this could have been avoided. Breakfast average at best, and no eggs in the first few days. We were told the stove/oven was broken - but this hotel is located in Halifax... More

I'd have given it a 3.5 if I could have, but TripAdvisor only does whole numbers. The hotel, and the rooms, have a very modern style, like an Apple store or an Ikea showroom (in fact I wouldn't be surprised if all the furniture was from Ikea). Some people may find that a bit stark and cold, but we didn't... More
