“Great location, clean and quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

There was a great price on line, so we booked one night and were not disappointed. Staff are friendly and helpful and the room was a good size, clean and comfortable. There is a small fridge and microwave in the room. Hot breakfast is included and parking is free. Windows open.
A short drive to the shops and eateries at Dartmouth Crossing or to the bridge to Halifax.
We would definitely stay there again.

We were very pleased with this location for our romantic overnight stay. We had no idea where to stay since our main reason for the visit was to shop and dine.

We did not have any reservations so we did not have any high expectations to get anything over the top. Well that's where we were wrong. We ended up in a king suite with a hot breakfast included at a very reasonably low price (probably what you would pay for a standard room) so we were very happy with that deal. We loved our room and the fact that there was 2 tv's which was more than we needed for 2 people and our bed was super comfortable.

We were very impressed with the hotel staff, front desks, restaurant and room service were all very friendly and accommodating. We were especially surprised by how new and clean this facility was. The pool didn't feel dirty at all and we ended up swimming alone, which was nice since the pool was the perfect size for my boyfriend and I. And we both loved that it was also heated.

The only suggestion we would have to improve just slightly is that it would be nice to have a clock in the pool area and maybe have better ventilation in the vending areas, they are very hot and uncomfortable with all those machines cooped up in a cubicle-like room. Otherwise, nothing major.

We had a wonderful time here at this hotel using almost everything to our advantage and really spoiled ourselves. I recommend this place to anyone who's looking to relax and enjoy the city. We are definitely returning!

We recently stayed for 1 night and I found everything to be perfect, from the rooms to the included hot buffet breakfast. Close to Burnside Ind Park and Dartmouth crossing. Not much within walking distance but a quick drive to almost anything you might want.
I would stay her again for sure.

We decided to stay here for one night,after attending a wedding reception onsite.
The price for a basic room is extremely reasonable. Our room faced a brick wall,not great,but we were not here to view out at the scenery.
The room was spotlessly clean,beds super comfy,great pillows,room temp adjustable, small fridge and microwave.2 Queen beds,chair and ottoman...all you need!
The front desk was very helpful,allowed a slightly earlier check-in,found my daughter a room on very short notice and answered all our questions.
Hot breakfast in the morning(bacon,sausages,scrambled eggs,toast,etc.) Very good.
I have to comment on the outstanding job they did at the reception. The room was beautiful,service excellent,food amazing. The only small suggestion I would offer would be to not start clearing the tables of decorations at ony 9:30 PM,at the height of the party(Flowers in vase and candles removed) Felt like we were being rushed to wind down for the night) I was only a guest,but this is just my observation and thoughts on it. However,it was a job well done,overall.
Great place to stay!!!

Room Tip: If looking out at a brick wall bothers you,ask for a different location(but,you may need to pay a hi...

Great hotel, very close to Dartmouth Crossing and the highway in order to get around. The room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was good...wish there had been more fresh fruit. The exercise room could do with some attention. Everything looks good but feels very rickety and unstable when on the equipment, especially the Elliptical machine

I think some travelers may be put off by the location of this hotel in Burnside, but it really is a great location if you've got a car and you're in town to do some shopping (less than 5 min drive to Dartmouth Crossing) or have kids in tow.

We're locals and just needed a night away from home due to house renos. The price was right and we were treated well by front desk staff. My daughter loved the pool - although beware, it's really more like a massive hot tub. Warm for the little kiddies, but you're not going to get much swimming done in it.

The breakfast the next morning was a bit ho-hum. We came nearer to the end of service and it was clear they were very busy that morning as there were no forks left, out of syrup, etc. What we did eat was standard hotel fare...nothing special, but not horrible. Overall, good stay.

Room Tip: Go to breakfast earlier if possible for best food selection.
