Poor - 1 out of 5

John McD, Glace Bay, visiting Halifax Forum Sun, 3 August 2014

Rude front desk; dirty; flies buzzing around; refused to refund money but eventually did - I hope.

Disliked: This hotel was so bad we left and got another hotel in Halifax.

Friendly staff. Free continental breakfast was very bare bones. Have to be there early for secure parking as there are about 30 rooms and 20 parking spaces. We were warned of that at check in which we were thankful for. Well worth the money, relatively close to Metro Center.

Liked: Room was very clean, old Inn charm. Windows actually opened.
Disliked: All the staircases were a little confusing - ended up in the wrong place sometimes.

Disliked: We were upgraded from our ?deluxe queen room? to a room with two double beds because the queen room was dirty and drab Also was not as large as advertised on booking .com We were unable to cancel our stay because we had booked the Same day and it was non refundable. So we stayed at the upgraded room which was cleaner but not convenient as a, the hair dryer didn?t work B, the plug in the bathroom did not work C, not very clean. D the drain plug in the sink leaked E Chrome cast tv was difficult to use On a rainy night coming back to the hotel the parking lot bar would not lift and no-one in office to contact Sadly, homeless people were camped in the drive way All in all it was not a pleasant two night stay We did not attempt to try the free breakfast !!

It was good

Disliked: They don?t even provide water to the people who are doing self-isolation. They can?t come in their room but they can provide breakfast and water outside their room

Liked: I was in isolation and not able to access the breakfast room. The hotel wasn't ready to deliver the food on door. Last day I got a chance to try breakfast but it was worst, just some cornflakes, milk and some bread.
Disliked: Totally different than I expect. The WiFi was poor, not even able to send a message in WhatsApp. Also in booking confirmation the facilities include cable TV, but there was only TV and the the cable connection wasn't available. The furnitures were outdated and the chair cloth is too dirty and and the cuisine was damaged. All the day people fighting around the reception. One day around 3 AM someone pull the fire alarm and most of the days was a mess.

Disappointing - 2 out of 5

Johns Thu, 10 September 2020


Liked: I only liked the parking. They haven't charged me for parking.
Disliked: The breakfast was not that good. The rooms were not that much clean. I found hairs all over the comforter and bed. They are charging even for the water. The place is not safe. One guy lost all his stuff when he came inside the place and went out. And that's from the places premise. Lady staffs were friendly, but the guy was not that friendly.
