“Wonderful gateway when travelling abroad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

We booked a night at the HI-Express Airport at each end of a recent trip to Europe from Fredericton, and we were very happy with all aspects of both stays. We particularly valued the Shuttle Service to and from the Airport, and the long-term parking option (although witnessing the desk clerk immediately offer another guest a free long term parking pass of equal length when the guest claimed she did not realise there was an additional charge left us feeling like dupes for having informed ourselves of the policy before booking and paid the correct rate at both ends of the trip.) Having experienced a few poor nights' sleep on various beds in Iceland, Wales, Scotland and England, we very much appreciated the comfortable bed, and enjoyed a wonderful sleep, waking rested and ready for the drive home. Breakfast both days was most agreeable, and it was very nice to be able to avail of fresh tea with milk during our stay, rather than having to make a pot of coffee-flavoured beverage lightened with clumpy non-dairy powder in one's room, as is often the case at hotels. We did not realise the in-room hot beverage maker is designed to dispense individual cups of hot water and could accept the shrink-wrapped disposable cups in our room (it appeared to us as though there was a missing glass carafe) and we laughed after asking the front desk for a replacement when we were told that “everyone thinks the pot is missing.” Suggest a small note posted by the machines in the rooms would help both guests and management. Regret not having the time/energy for a swim, but we look forward to staying here again soon, and enjoying the warm and courteous hospitality.

Wow! Thank you Captain_No_Beard for your excellant 5 star review. I was happy to hear that you expereinced a good night sleep with us. We do need to be flexible sometimes with some guests who have not been as diligent and efficient as you with our reasonable parking fees. I hope you will back to visit us again soon!
Safe travels

My husband and I stayed here twice during a recent road trip through the Maritimes and New England states. The rooms were large, roomy with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are also large, very clean and modern with lots of fresh fluffy towels...this is a service I really appreciate - instead of having just one towel per person as you find in so many other hotels. The breakfast room is bright with loads of seating, including a comfortable couch and armchairs, and tons of food - both hot and cold choices. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Shuttle service very reliable and welcome. We've used Holiday Inn Express hotels often in various parts of Canada and this is the best one yet. I highly recommend this hotel.

I usually stay at this Hotel during business trips to Halifax and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and clean. They offer free Wi-Fi, breakfast and shuttle bus to the Airport. They also have an indoor pool and a gym. It doesn't have a restaurant on site but you can go next door to the Hilton Garden Inn where there's a restaurant. If you don't want to leave your room they have a directory in the rooms so that you can order from the restaurants in the area and have it deliver there. They also have a small convenience store near the lobby where you can buy snacks and beverages. At their dining room they offer complimentary coffee and cookies throughout the day. Overall a great hotel!

I took off from Phoenix, but the plane was delayed in the air, so we arrived an hour late into Philadelphia. Because of that I missed my flight to Halifax. The cutoff to cancel a reservation without losing your money was 6 P.M, but we arrived at 8 P.M. I could hardly call from 30,000 feet, so when I called they told me "too bad." The circumstances prevented me from canceling earlier, and it wasn't my fault. They can keep my $124.00, but I will never stay there or any other Holiday Inn again. I own a business and we put many of our visitors at a Holiday Inn Express near our office in CA, but I think I will rethink that. A little greed bites you in the long run as they will lose quite a bit of business over this in the long run.

Thank you TomKellyAZ for your honest review. It was unfortunate to hear of your flight delays.
When we received your call after 9pm AST we endeavored to resell your room however we could not. We had turned away guests throughout the evening as our latest cancellation time is 6pm ASTand we are required to hold all other guaranteed rooms until early the next morning in case of late arrival.
Airline problems and weather make traveling now a days very unpredictable.
I would highly recommend that in the future, you consider travel insurance to provide you with protection against these types of occurrences.
Sincere regards

This hotel is near the Halifax airport. Has shuttle service to and from the airport. The rooms are lovely, clean, comfy beds. The bathroom is very clean and nice,. The lighting may be a bit "dull", but I have been in darker hotel bathrooms. The rates are very good. The front desk staff were very helpful. Their is a restaurant next door, where you can have Dinner. Because the Hoilday Inn is an Express, they offer Breakfast only, not Dinner. The coffee room is lovely, great coffees are there almost 24 hours a day, cookies are homemade, and are offered in the evening until they are gone.

Room Tip: I don't have any tips on choosing a room. My guess is that they are all very nice. We were there...

3 nights spent here to start and finish our holiday. The room was clean,quiet and roomy. The staff was friendly, helpfull and available.
I do wish these chains would include refrigerators in the rooms, as they did at one time.
Also, the one cup coffee service is useless.
Very comfortable beds with new linens and lovely towels. The breakfast buffet was a big plus and there is a full service restaurant in the hotel next door which was quite adequate.
We definitely recommend this hotel,

We stayed here for one night prior to our departure from Nova Scotia. It was a fitting ending to a wonderful vacation. Our room was clean, large and very comfortable. We had two double beds, an armchair, desk and chair, closet, chest two telephones, a big flat-screen TV and a coffee corner. All we found lacking were an in-room safe and minibar.

The roomy bathroom had a tub/shower, big. soft towels and an assortment of toiletries.

The hotel has an indoor pool and a small fitness room. Theere is reliable 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. The extensive hot and cold breakfast buffet ensures that guests get a good nutritious start to their day. We found the staff friendly, pleasant and helpful,

Definitely recommended.
