Holiday Inn Truro

Reviewed June 29, 2010

I recently found myself driving across Nova Scotia, and in need of a hotel room in the Truro area. I was not overly familiar with the area, and I am sometimes wary of Holiday Inn hotels in the middle of nowhere, as they can sometimes be old and outdated. This was not the case with the recently renovated Holiday Inn in Truro, Nova Scotia. I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel.
At first, the check-in staff was helpful and efficient, and even recommended some restaurants in the area. There is not much within walking distance, so my colleague and I ate at the hotel restaurant (more on that later).
The room itself, while a little on the smaller side, was very modern, clean, and comfortable. The room featured the new Holiday Inn branding including new linens and decor, and everything was quite nice. The bed was very comfortable, and there as a nice selection of pillows. The work desk was very good, and the Hi-Speed internet (which is always a gripe for me as a frequent business traveler) was very fast and worked great. There was a big LCD TV and plenty of Canadian and American TV channels. The bathroom, while small, had a great shower and a good selection of Bath & BodyWorks products. They smelled really good!!!
For dinner, we chose the hotel restaurant, which can be scary at some Holiday Inn hotels, but this one was really good. The food was great, the service was excellent, and they had a nice selection of local Nova Scotia wines. I would easily eat there again!!
We did not do breakfast in the morning, although the hotel offered it, but check-out was quick. Their computer in the lobby was down, but the woman behind the counter allowed me to use her workstation to print a boarding pass, which was very nice.

I would easily stay here again if in the Truro area!!!

I had a one day meeting in Truro last month before making my way to more appointments in New Brunswick. When I arrived at the Holiday Inn in Truro the front desk made me feel very welcome. The girl working even asked me what kind of room I would prefer as they had a couple of different rooms available. I had never been asked this before without a hotel trying to get more money out of me! Of course, I picked the room with the king bed. The room was NEW with a very comfortable king size bed and huge flat screen television. The fitness centre is the largest and brightest I have ever used in hotel. Also, their pool looked bright and clean although I did not use it. Lastly, my breakfast in the restaurant the next morning was delicious and the waitress even surprised me with a coffee in a take out when a paid my bill. I will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn the next time I am in Truro.

I was concerned that the hotel would seem older when I saw its' location. It's in a very residential area. I don't know how old it is, but the interior seems brand new. The room was very comfortable with the highest quality linens and towels that I have seen in this type of hotel. Breakfast is not included, so it's not as good of a value as others hotels we stayed on this trip, but I didn't see anything in Truro that looked as nice.
The only issue we had was that the maintenance staff had a scheduled fire alarm test the Sunday morning we were checking out. Management had put a letter under the door overnight informing us about it, which I appreciated. The letter said the test would begin at 11am (checkout time) and that seemed reasonable. Unfortunately, someone in maintenace was a little over eager and decided to begin the test at about 10:30. We were trying to hurry and get out because the piercing alarm was going off for about a minute at a time at two or three minute intervals. It was extremely annoying. My husband called the front desk and they seemed to be as frustrated as we were and said they had begged maintenance to stop to no avail. The testing did end about 5 minutes before we left. Don't know if they were finished or if the front desk appeals were finally heeded. It was a great stay other than that, but there was absolutely no reason to inconvenience guests that way. The hotel probably would've been nearly empty if they had waited an hour or so.

Great room, wonderful pool and workout facilities. A bit off the highways, but worth a stop.

Spent a night at the Holiday Inn – Truro after landing at YHZ (Halifax) airport in June, 2009. This followed an all-night series of flights originating in San Francisco. My request for an early check-in was readily accommodated by the front desk, along with being provided with an upgrade to a King room.

After wheeling in my luggage, I was very pleased to find a very nicely appointed and renovated room at the end of the hallway on the first floor. The only issue was that the room was a bit small for a king, but the new furnishings and appointments more than made up for the perceived lack of space. The bed was comfortable, the internet fast and the shower powerful and hot…which completes my necessary trinity for a successful hotel experience.

The room was very clean and the refrigerator and microwave were new and in excellent working order. The room also had a flat screen television with about 35 channels, the usual Canadian hotel mix of US networks, Canadian networks and various versions of cable channels.

I did have an brief issue with the smoke detector in the room, but it was quickly and successfully remedied in a matter of minutes.

While I didn’t use the pool or exercise room at this particular hotel, I did see the facilities and the pool and whirlpool looked very clean and maintained and the machines in the workout facility looked new. The restaurant and bar were right off the lobby and seemed to both be pretty popular…I did have a drink later on in the evening and the bartender and wait staff were friendly and talkative.

All in all, a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. The hotel is located in a residential area between NS 102 (the freeway) and downtown Truro and so the area is very quiet and traffic isn’t bad at all. There are plenty of places to eat either way you go, along with shopping and gasoline. The Holiday Inn in Truro is a great place to visit, even if you don’t have relatives in the area.

Stayed one night before driving ~40 minutes to the Halifax airport. Great location within Truro. Hotel is newly renovated. Our large room with king bed had fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. We relaxed in their pool / hot tub area. Friendly, helpful staff.
We visited the "tree" sculptures in town and sat by the river to watch the tidal bore come in. Truro also has lots of nice restaurants, a short drive from the hotel.
