Recent guest reviews

It is a good place very next to Sydney river and close to the downtown area. The only thing it is a bit expensive. The staff is nice and cooperative. It has ample free parking space for the customers. It just on Kings Road.

Check-in was easy, room was clean and well kept,breakfast met my needs and location was perfect.

The most positive thing about our stay was the very friendly staff. We were very pleased with how welcoming and friendly the staff were, especially the awesome ladies working the breakfast! Our room was okay but it is definitely in need of some work. The carpet needs to go, it looked old and stained in spots. Also, we were in room 347 and the shower was stuck on so it wasn't possible to give the kids a bath...just a shower. The bedskirts seemed very sloppy...they looked too large for the bed size. Unfortunately, there was a group of unsupervised kids running around the hotel all hours of the night which made it difficult to get our children to sleep. The same kids were also swimming in the pool without an adult with them. They looked to be12 and under and they were running, diving and were unruly. I was worried someone was going to get hurt. They were also making a mess, leaving garbage, crushed cookies, chips, etc. all over. At one point two of them were having a race into the pool and almost landed on my six year old. This kind of ruined the pool experience but the parents are to blame, not the hotel staff. The beds were very comfortable and there was a variety of items to choose from at breakfast.

room was not clean, stains on floor and bed skirting, bathroom sink not clean, no klinex in box, handcream open and used

After a beautiful day in the Cabot Trail my cousin and I decided to stay in Sydney Nova Scotia. The check in process was very quick and the person at the counter helped us with finding a great restaurant that delivered. We were exhausted. The room had everything we needed and was comfortable. The breakfast in the morning had both hot and cold selections. The ladies in the dining area were very friendly. Overall a great nights sleep and great start to our day.

Roof fell in in the bathroom; urine on counter/mirror. Moved rooms...keys wouldn’t work three times, a/c and remote didn’t work. I had three young kids with me...I was exhausted by the time we got settled and was told I wouldn’t have to pay. The next morning, when o checked out, new staff “knew nothing about no charge “...and had to pay 80%. Ugh. Will NEVER stay at a travelodge again. Moved to Hampton inn and paid less and felt like royalty!!!

Clean room helpful and friendly staff. I was a little disappointed that our room was not overlooking the harbour. But I guess I should have requested one when I booked my room.

Staff very friendly, bathroom a little out dated, beds were very comfy, very quiet spot for a Saturday night. Breakfast was good, coffee was excellent! Staff in the breakfast area were extremely friendly and looked after the area.

Other than clean, location is good near downtown. Rest are average; but expected for the price paid.

rooms are large.clean except under beds and behind furniture needs a good house cleaning.air conditioner had a powdery smell so i couldnt use the do not open .tt is very thin if you like good stuff and bring your own dont leave it on a back of the toilet they will take it away cause it looks bad.over all a good room.breakfast was exceptional.staff keeping all stocked and hot food was cooked and hot.very good variety.front desk people exceptional. kyle was who we interacted with and he was was also quiet even with a team staying on this floor.
