The Esquire harkens back to yesteryear. An old fashioned, 50's style roadside motel. Definitely retro in the most authentic way possible. Not a whole lot has been done to modernize this gem but the rooms are clean, well appointed with a small fridge and microwave and are very well priced. Dogs are allowed. Staff is personable. A definite option for...

Bugs everywhere. Carpet was stained and had huge tears in it. The bathroom was out of the 50's (pink toilet, tub and sink) and smelled strongly of urine. The flooring was not secured to the floor in the bathroom and so water had pooled underneath and mold stained 6" around all the edges. There was some unidentified metal object under...

Arrived at our booked motel (see my review on the Wedgewood Motel in Halifax) to find it closed/locked and had to search for an alternate. Ended up about 1 kilomoter away finding the Esquire Motel. It's a typical no-nonsense motel, you get a room, a bed and that's it, but at an affordable price. The giril at reception was helpfull...

Old musty dank motel. Needs cleaning and maintenance on all aspects. 86 plus taxes not such a deal for what you get. This should be 50 bucks at best. Adding more details will not make this review any better. ..4 sentences cover it all

The room is very large and accommodating, fridge, microwave, table, tv, wifi and desk. It has everything you need. It's not modern but it's clean and comfortable. We stayed with 2 adults, 1 infant and a 3 year old. We had enough room to set up a bassinet, sleep well with our 3 year old in the bed with us...

We don't think this place knows it is 2016. It seems to think it is still the 1990's. (Or earlier) From the 20" tube TV to the cracked up bathtub and 1950's thermostat. No A/C but they do give you a loud fan for your enjoyment! They said there was free WiFi but we are on an end room and...

Where does one even start? We booked the two bedroom suite for two days as we were getting renovations at out home and needed to be out. The room was FILTHY. I'm talking huge dead spiders under nearly every dresser/night table. There was a spider in the tub. The floors were carpet and the stains were unreal. I put towels...

The place is clean, and across the road is a small restaurant which has the best breakfast I've ever had in the bedford/dartmouth area. It's affordable, not the most modern but it's clean and the people at the front desk were more than happy to give us directions, tell us about events going on in the area and places we...
