We stayed in Kentville on the ocean for four nights. It is close to all the amenities. When we checked in, we were given all sorts of tips and area map. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. Parking was for free and always available. I wanted to stay across from ocean, not spend a fortune and... More

Recently stayed at the Kentville and the best thing I can say about it that the parking was great and the location was as well. We had a room on the 2nd floor, the stairs were very steep and the door to the room was a slider. I did not feel safe in this room. The room was either too... More

The Kentville has a great location convenient to the beach and on-site parking which made it nice to keep the beach gear in the car and have easy access. For the hotel itself -- very outdated. Do not expect more than the basics - our one disappointment was that access to the rooms are from the balcony walkway so you... More
