Terrible all-around. If I hadn't pre-paid months ago, I would have moved to another hotel. Mold in bathroom around toilet, hard and lumpy beds, on/off water pressure, iffy Wi-Fi. The room and décor are really old and needing updating. My friend (who was sharing with me) had no night stand or clock by her bed, just a floor lamp. The... More

Confortable and quiet. Large parking lot. Rooms need renovations especially the bathrooms. The shower faucet was broken and difficult to use The Wi-Fi was very slow and intermittent, not very effective.

We stayed here a couple of times in the past month. It is dated, older, bit always clean! The staff are always friendly, and accommodating. The restraint is great.... love the food and the freshness of everything! Great parking, good location. Having Laundry on site was an added bonus!

I'd have to say first off, that you get what you pay for - and this hotel was by a longshot the cheapest in the area and only 15min out of Halifax. Having said that, the first order of business was phoning countless times and leaving several messages we never did get an answer or a call back. We decided... More

This is one of those older hotels that needs an upgrade. Good location and you can see the harbor from the parking lot. OK for an overnight stay while passing thru and the bed was comfy but we were very tired. Had a/c and WIFI.

A zero rating best reflects this hotel but I had to give it a 1 rating to post this review. Howard Johnson's should be ashamed to have this place in their portfolio and close it's door permanently. We stayed in room #5. Upon arrival the room key did not open the door even though the light flashed green. Returned to... More

The room we booked was one with a kitchenette because we were staying a couple of days and hoped we could make a few of our meals. The cupboards and dishes were so dirty that we were too disgusted to do this. The furnishings were old and stained. It snowed while were there. No one cleared the snow from the... More
