Our iphone did not work in Canada, so we went to the visitor center in downtown Halifax. A lady there helped us get a hotel,which turned out to be Best Western, chocolate lake. We were very happy we stopped at this visitor center. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was an excellent experience. All the staff including the dinning room service were very helpful and pleasant. The view of the lake is beautiful and there is a place to sit outside so you can really enjoy the breathtaking beauty. The thing that worked the best for me was there...

We selected the hotel because we like the name. It paid off. We had a lovely, spacious room and a good bath room. There was a restful lake view from the room as well as the restaurant. We ate in the restaurant and it was exceptional. The breakfast was included and the offerings were very upscale for a reasonably priced...

Small cramped room. Tiny bathroom. You have to walk outside to change your mind it's that small. Weird layout, you take an elevator then, there are 5 steps going down. Really doesn't make sense at all.

This was the most animal friendly hotel I have ever been in! It is on a very scenic location overlooking a lake. Very friendly staff. A short drive to major areas in Halifax and free parking. It met our basic needs. Breakfast was included in our stay. Price was reasonable. The hotel is very pet friendly. People were checking in...

Whenever I go to Halifax, I choose to stay at the Best Western PLUS Chocolate Lake Hotel because it is very clean, the staff are always very kind and accommodating and it has a great breakfast included.

Not a bad selection. In town, but not downtown (10 - 15 minutes to tourist harbor boardwalk area). Try to get a room on a top floor, facing the lake. The onsite restaurant is so - so for lunch or dinner, but a nice free, morning breakfast. Free onsite parking is a plus.The big draw to this hotel is the...
