We stayed here for two nights. We were on the top (9th) floor. We chose the hotel because it had the lowest CAA rate for a hotel of its class and was close to everything (although we needed to drive). I think it used to be a Keddy's hotel. The rooms were small by today's standards although certainly adequate. The...

Great hotel, service and great location. Not downtown, but 10 minutes by car to city centre. Location great because its in quiet area by a nice lake, which is still in Halifax but feels country. We stayed for 4 nights, rooms was wonderful, we upgraded to 2 queen size bedroom (just 2 of us) for much more roomy feel. Very...

I've stayed in most of the hotels in halifax and this one is as good as any of the others. We stayed here for a week with our 6 month old and it was quiet and clean. The hotel restaurant doesn't do room service (i didn't see that anyway) but it does take-out which is basically the same but cheaper....

Always a pleasure staying at Chocolate Lake. Highly recommended for value and comfort. It offers all that is needed for a night's stay. With breakfast included it gives great value for the price of the room. Better cable TV would be an asset. Internet connection was excellent

Besides the great view, plush towels and spacious rooms this hotel offers a resident mascot - a chocolate lab who is loved by all. The original mascot, Cocoa has recently retired to a staff member's parents' farm. The new mascot is Aero, still in training but also sweet in nature. Food is also quite good at the restaurant, and service...

Room Amenities were not so good, I have stayed in the past, no complaints, usually we get 2 queen beds, we opted for 1 kin this time as we were not travelling with my daughter, the king bed was hard as a rock and the ground would have been more comfortable, the TV was a very old flat panel circa...

As always, the best western is a sure pick. You really can't go wrong, and I've yet to be dissapointed. I stay at hotels very often and do my best to stay at a BW. Chocolate lake was no exception, centrally located and great price.

a little out of the way i.e. from downtown, but close to the Bayers Lake area with lots of restaurants and shops. It's a little awkward to find the first time you go. It's worth mentioning that the bed was particularly comfortable.

This was a business trip. after a long day of work, I arrived in the room opened the blinds to admire the view of the lake and all I could see was trash on the roof (a dirty diaper and empty water and beer bottles on the roof, just not what I was expecting from this place) I only took...

Don't let the slightly outdated look of the hotel scare you off. This room was clean and had all the amenities you want. The bed was comfortable AND - and huge bonus - the windows in our room opened. Plus we had a great view of the lake. Really worth mentioning is the staff. They were not only friendly but...
