Best Western Plus Chocolate Lake Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were extremely pleased with our experience at this hotel and the services available.

The hotel has its own access to the chocolate lake, which is a really pleasant surprise to us. Both my daughter and my dog had a good time swimming in the lake. The hotel staff is really polite and checking in is fairly fast. The breakfast is great. The only thing we were. It happy with is room cleaning service. When we arrived hotel at 3:30 pm, the room has not been cleaned yet and we had to wait another 1.5 hours for it to get ready. The hotel had a chocolate lab, and his name is Aero. Our dog was so pleased to meet him.

Great view and close to Halifax! Great for kids and business travel.

Clean, roomy, with small kitchenette. Good restaurant and free breakfast.

Great hotel with a nice pool. The hotel was clean and my pregnant wife really liked it. The staff was friendly. The pool also had a hot tub.

While not within walking distance of downtown, this hotel offers great value for families. Rooms are large and nicely decorated. Beds are very comfortable and televisions are modern and quite large. The pool and exercise room are a nice bonus as is the included full breakfast (even if rather basic).

The location of the hotel was perfect for easy in and out in Halifax. I was in the area for work that required travel to other coastal locations. This hotel was easy to do what I needed. It is also in walking distance to restaurants, which was nice. The room was clean, the hotel well outfitted, and the breakfast in the morning was tasty. I did not eat dinner in the hotel restaurant, but it smelled great! I would definitely stay again when in Halifax.

As always the Chocolate Lake Hotel was wonderful! Great room, great view, friendly and helpful staff, and a great breakfast! I have always loved the location as it is close to the downtown, and Bayers Lake. It is my go to hotel!

We arrived late in the evening. The staff member was helpful and friendly. The large chocolate colored Labrador was sound asleep on a doggy bed behind the front desk. In the morning, we looked out of the window and saw the blue sky and puffy white clouds reflected perfectly in the lake.

Was a comfortable motel, Staff very nice, good breakfast. Away from downtown noise.

Everything was very good.Do not forget its awsome resturant view and foods.

that motel had everything we needed it was so nice I still remember that motel because it was so nice

Hi, Stayed at the hotel to attend a wedding elsewhere. Wasn't in the room for too long however the cable TV reception was about the only issue we had. Not the best, many channels came in fuzzy. Room was clean, bed was super comfortable. Would stay again.

We were exhausted when we arrived after having traveled all day. The staff was more than accommodating even as the restaurant was almost closing. we did not feel rushed. Rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was substantial. Being able to sit outside and look at the lake for breakfast was great!

This is the second time I stayed here, and it continues to meet my expectations. I really appreciate the full breakfast buffet in the morning.

This where we usually always stay when visiting Halifax and every visit has been wonderful, with great check-ins, lovely room, and the best kept secret in Halifax.....an excellent restaurant! Will be staying there again in the future.

I really like this hotel - it's so clean and comfortable, there's a full hot breakfast, free parking and the staff are always very pleasant and welcoming. It is not right downtown, but is just a short drive from either downtown or a major shopping area nearby.

It was a convenient location because the workshop I was at was in the hotel itself. The room key continually did not work and I kept returning to the front desk for another. This was the only inconvenience. Nice and quiet and I could check in early and check out late with no issues.

Well I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! However, the "best kept secret" in Halifax is the restaurant!! We ate at the restaurant for supper and breaksfast, and both were wonderful. The supper menu was more then reasonably priced and the portions were huge. I highly recommend the "Beer Battered Fish", as it was delicious! Our room was cozy, and everyone is just so friendly. It is our go to place to stay when traveling to Halifax!

Our first choice in hotels when staying in Halifax. Close to the downtown, the hospitals, and to shopping in Bayers Lake. We had a drive-up room, which was perfect for my daughter who is blind. Easily accessible for her from car to room. The breakfast was delicious, with a great variery of choices. Always a pleasure to stay there!
