Recent guest reviews

Stayed at this hotel for 3 months straight while working in halifax loved the big rooms the tasty home made breakfast and the employees where awsome. It's only a $20 cab rise to town and they have a nice little forest behind to relax in.

As we have family in Halifax we frequently drive from Moncton for an overnight visit and choose to stay at the Comfort Inn on all these visits. We have a standard poodle so the fact this inn is pet friendly is a major asset for us. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and a good breakfast is provided free consisting of both hot and cold choices. For tourists this is a great place to base a stay in the Halifax area. It is about 10 kms. from the Halifax Citadel. After spending some time touring Halifax center it is good to get back to the Inn which is in a quiet area overlooking the Bedford Basin. There is free parking, a coin laundry, a pool and some rooms have kitchenettes. For those with dogs there is a natural area behind the Inn with a small creek and lots of trees. On the occasions we are not dining with family we enjoy a relaxing meal from a take out delivered right to the room. I would recommend this accommodation.

We booked this hotel because it offered a pool, breakfast, and allowed pets. The lady desk agent who took my call suggested the kitchenette suite because it would be bigger. She was very helpful. The property is centrally located and out of traffic being on the Bedford Highway. On arrival we took the dog out behind after a long drive and was pleasantly surprised to find a lengthy wooded path next to a beautiful brook. Inside we immediately noticed the pool was out of order. Since we came on vacation we were disappointed and I will be placing a call about this. The room was very spacious and had space for all five of us and the dog. The kitchenette was kitted out with appliances and cupboards and plenty of utensils and dinnerware. If anyone was on a long-term stay this would be perfect. The beds were comfortable and the rooms was clean. My only issue was we needed the air conditioner because it was stuffy and it tripped the breaker so we had to improvise (the provided stand up fan also did not work). Breakfast was perfect and offered eggs, sausage, ham, waffles, yogourt, juices, and breads. The attendant kept it all stocked and clean. We ended up leaving our charger behind and it was ready for us when we went back the next day.

My partner & I stayed here for 2 nights in October. It is located just a few (10-15) minutes northwest of Halifax. Good breakfast included and comfortable rooms. Nice view of the Bedford Basin. Not many restaurants within walking distance - some north of the property. Many good restaurants in Halifax. Free parking and wifi at the hotel. Would stay here again since the rate was very reasonable compared with downtown hotels,

I arrived at this hotel feeling very fragile - several personal issues had left me very battered. I can't thank Amber the Duty Manager and Erin from the Front Desk for taking control and helping me deal with the things that could be sorted. They were kind and compassionate to the extreme and I am so grateful. As for the rest of the hotel - I really don't have much to add - I had a huge room - massive. The place was clean, all the staff seemed nice - especially the people from the restaurant but quite frankly, with the level of help and understanding I got from Amber and Erin, I was more than happy to be there - thank you so much once again

We are currently staying here while our moving company keeps our belongings in limbo hostage. My husbands work put us up here in the mean time since our town house is also not ready to move into. The hotel is beautiful and has a spectacular view of the basin. I am staying with my in mother and father in laws, my husband, our 3 month old daughter and my service dog in training. They have accommodated us and our needs by providing a bed for our daughter and dish soap to wash bottles. Washroom is huge! Rooms are a good size, it is quiet and the staff is super friendly. We are really enjoying our stay here. Thank you to the comfort inn staff who have been so helpful to us in this difficult move to the east coast.

The hotel is not located in downtown Halifax but it is easy to find and is in a good location to reach Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg. It is also close to some very good restaurants and a farmers market. I highly recommend the Esquire Restaurant. I found the room to be well appointed but small with all the stuff. The bathroom was ample. He old negatives were the noisy neighbour and the lady that maintained the breakfast room on Saturday did a terrible job. Most breakfast items were gone by 09:00 and yet there was product in the back. We really liked having the washer and dryer.

We had a little suite at the front of the hotel on the second floor. There was a large balcony that had a couple of chairs and a little table. The room had a queen bed, sofa, coffee table and a bar area (with a small sink, microwave, mini fridge, cabinets). We didn't use the balcony much as it was quite dewy in the morning and at night. This hotel was located on a highway (80km/h) so there was some noise from traffic, particularly in the morning. As well, there is a very long train that went by a few times during our stay and it was quite loud. The air conditioner in the room is one that goes through the window. It was VERY noisy. We couldn't keep it on at night due to the noise which resulted in an uncomfortably warm sleep. The room itself was a good size, however, the floor was creaky and slanted. It felt like you were in a fun house walking from the bed to the bar area. The bathroom was quite small but it had been updated. When we arrived, our sink wouldn't drain but after advising the front desk, the problem was fixed. When you turn on the bathroom light, the fan automatically turns on with it. The fan was very loud. The cleanliness of the room was so, so. There was a few pieces of pepperoni on the floor under the coffee table and a small stool. Either the room wasn't vacuumed prior to our arrival or they missed those spots. The hotel's location is about a 15-20 minute drive from downtown depending on the traffic. We were only at this hotel for a few nights and I had planned out our destinations during the day so that we didn't have to return to the hotel frequently to change. Had we stayed in Halifax for any longer, I would have preferred that we chose another hotel closer to downtown so that we could walk around and not have to worry about parking. The breakfast at the hotel was phenomenal and the little room to eat in is quite quaint. We were definitely impressed by the selection and availability of food. One thing to note, this hotel doesn't have an elevator so you are stuck lugging your bags up two flights of stairs for a second floor room or a flight of stairs for the first floor.

We had come from Cape Breton Island. It was late. We would probably not have come this far, but were anticipating seeing the Citadel in Halifax. As it turned out, we didn't see it anyway, so frankly, it would have been easier to put in at Truro, but we had reservations at this place. The two young ladies at the front desk that evening, July 22, 2017, made us feel so welcome. We had booked ahead and had requested a room that didn't involve stairs. They put us right next to the elevator, which worked out nicely since the main hallway has two sections with about three steps each. The room was quiet, comfortable, and clean. We highly recommend this Comfort Inn.

There are 12 of us on the private tour of the Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay Area and have stayed at the Comfort Inn for three nights, the accommodation is clean, the staff friendly and very accommodating. We were to large a group to meet in one room, the staff in duty allowed us to use the breakfast room to plan our next day's tours.
