Homeward Inns of Canada
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Antigonish
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Friendly and efficient check-in at a good price. Lots of eating establishments nearby. Although it was no-smoking we could smell smoke from the adjoining unit. There was also noise through the wall unfortuantely. We did not report this situation.

Room Tip: arrive early appears popular due to location

Thank you for your comments. At the Homeward Inns of Canada, we take great pride in the excellent work of our housekeeping staff. The hard work of our housekeepers shows in the great comments we receive about the cleanliness of our rooms. It is also our policy to never unplug clock radios, fridges or a/c while guests are staying in our rooms. Our rooms also receive constant inspections for bed bugs by professionals; we have never had bed bugs at our property. It is unfortunate that you decided to stay with us week after week if you continued to face all of these challenges during your stay. If you mentioned these issues at all during your seven week stay, we would have been happy to address them. It is also unfortunate that your stay was in such contrast to the other nine members of your group who let us know how happy they were with the accommodations.

Thank You

My wife and I checked in to the Homeward Inn in Antigonish late at night. We were greeted by a young lady who's first name was Melany. The service that she provided and the manner in which she shared it, insured that we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast at an excellent restaurant nearby was provided in the morning. We would like to commend Melany and Homeward Inn for helping to make our Nova Scotia holiday so special.

Stayed here in May, the staff were very friendly and the room recently renovated. Great location, close to everything, right off the highway. Breakfast coupons were included for the restaurant next door which was great. Walking distance to downtown and the university. Definitely the place to stay during your visit to Antigonish!

Location was very great, towels were very small and needs to update TV's ( very old and has no remote) also needs to update bathroom and change the shower curtains. Parking lot at back of motel needs pavement, but not a big deal! Also, they avertise a hot breakfast but didn't give us any information on where this hot breakfast was. When to MacDonalds instead.

Thank You for your review. We are currently upgrading all of our televisions to 32'-40' flat-screen televisions and we plan to complete the upgrade on the few rooms that do not contain flat-screen televisions by the first of 2013. I apologize that you were not offered the voucher for hot breakfasts at Snow Queen Restaurant. Please contact us to receive a refund of $20.00 to compensate the price of the breakfast. We hope that you choose to stay with us again in the future.

We had an unexpected stay in Antigonish during our recent family vacation and we choose the Homeward Inns of Canada. It was a nice hotel, the room was clean. The hotel is located close to several restaurants. Overall it ws a decent stay.
