Overall, a good value in Halifax. Clean friendly, great beds, good breakfast. The parking lot can be quite busy, but, there still seem to be enough spaces. You will need a car as downtown is not walking distance really. Easy access to Dalhousie university. Restaurant has a pleasant feel at night, fine for dinner.

My wife and I recently spent 5 nights at the Best Western Chocolate Lake (3 nights in mid-July and 2 more in early August). What a wonderful oasis only 12 minutes drive from the heart of Halifax. The covered deck overlooking the tree-lined lake was a delightful place to enjoy our complimentary hot breakfast and the other meals we ate... More

Not located in the downtown district, but very convenient if you have a car and are doing day trips. It is just a short, easy drive from downtown. Don't be fooled by the exterior. It is clean and has a great restaurant. Staff was wonderful.

Upon getting there we were a bit overwhelmed by the small parking lot but soon discovered that there was more than adequate parking. The hotel was fine - except our room was on the 3rd floor and after getting off the elevator, we found it impossible to continue using the luggage cart because of the 3 or 4 steps required... More

The hotel is beautiful, the staff is great and the complimentary breakfast was delicious! I ate more croissants than I will admit! Last was there in December but will be heading back to Halifax in September and will definitely be staying here.

Outstanding renovated rooms, outstanding views from the rooms and the restaurant -- difficult to park if you return at night This hotel is in Halifax and near major highways. It books up in season and it becomes difficult to extend your stay.

We stayed at Chocolate Lake Best Western for two nights during our visit to Halifax. We chose it for it's free parking (which most Halifax hotels don't have), and great lake view. Our room was clean but quite small. We really enjoyed the included breakfast overlooking Chocolate Lake. Overall, would recommend for people wanting a good hotel but also not... More

The location was perfect for us; our room was large and clean - a basic hotel room but great size (417 top floor of smaller wing). Staff were very friendly and helpful; breakfast was exactly the same every day so we only did that twice since we were there for a week. It is free and there are options so... More
