“Moldy in now renovated room”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I like the location with the great restaurant attached. The Motel was easy to find and the employees where friendly. When it can to the room, the room we had was meldowy and out dated. The manger said they up-date a couple of rooms per year, until it is totally up-dated I will not stay their .

We recently stayed at this hotel and as we entered the room (motel style), all we could smell was old! There was mould on the walls in the room and the air conditioning unit in the window was so loud, we could not have it on if we wanted to sleep. So our room was extremely warm and smelly. The only good thing I could say was that the bed was comfortable and despite the old smell in the room, the bed smelled very clean. However, I would definitely not stay there again.

Having stayed at many hotels during my visit to Nova Scotia, this hotel was the worst. Rain dripping on our head while sleeping, cleanliness was extremely questionable, unaccommodating staff and the list goes on. A hit and run on my car was added to the trip here. When planning future trips, the Howard Johnson chain of places to stay will not be one of them for sure.

We stayed June 23, 2013 in room 17. The bathroom ceiling fan, which comes on with the bathroom light, hangs down from the ceiling and as it exhausts air, sucks sewer gas smelling air from the attic into the room. Had to use a table lamp near the door to be able to use the bathroom without running the fan.

Hot breakfast was better than many others.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments. Negitive or otherwise they are of great value and are appreciated.

Yes the ceiling fan was broke and has since been replaced. Just so you are aware there is no sewer gases in the attic, and no issue with the fact that there could be. This type of information is important and we thank you for it.

I am only sorry your visit to Halifax was not so wonderful and your stay here did not meet your standards.

Respectfully.
