Nice room, good rate, and a million dollar view! I travel a fair amount so imagine my surprise to find the most comfortable bed in a hotel that I've been in in years! Not kidding. The staff is friendly and professional, of course, but Kathy is a real gem. She went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. It's an older building but everything works and the free breakfast was an unlooked for bonus.
I had been traveling in Nova Scotia during Hurricane Dorian and had been in accommodations without power for two nights. I was booked at a motel in Bedford and they were also without power. They were good enough to cancel my stay without penalty so I could book something else. I called The Comfort Inn and on very short notice they booked me in. There was a initially a bit of mixup with my room but that was quickly resolved and I was settled in and thankfully in the shower soon after arriving. I was in a room with a second bedroom 2 televisions a refrigerator and microwave. It was clean spacious and a much better price than downtown Halifax. It is located within an easy few minutes of Dartmouth orHalifax and there are plenty of nearby restaurants. Available items at breakfast were ham, sausage, eggs, waffles and the usual fruit, bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt and coffee,tea and juice. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. I would recommend a stay here as it is clean comfortable and good value fo the budget minded traveler. There is also a guest laundry room.
Even though this hotel was fully booked and we couldn't stay, I must mention the exceptional front desk service provided by Cathy. She and her associate (Jo Jo?), spent the time to phone around and find us a room in close-by Timberlea. She even booked the room for us as it was the last one available. Thanks very much you gals - you saved our bacon!
First off, I'm not one to leave negative reviews, but I feel the need to after my experience here. Check-in was lovely; the front desk agent was very courteous and knowledgeable. I booked this room last minute, and I understand that all hotels in the area were swamped due to the hurricane and power outages. However, the room I stayed in was VERY close to the front desk, making it difficult to get rest with the constant foot traffic. There was a mini-fridge in the room which was very loud, so I unplugged that. I could also hear people in the room above me and the TV in my room was missing a? hook-up to the satellite so I required someone from the front desk to come to help me at 11 pm in order to have background noise. As far as cleanliness goes - I was also disappointed, there was hair (not mine) in the shower, and my friend and I went to use the pool in the morning, but there was a huge chunk of hair where you entered the pool so that was a turn-off as well. Overall, the bed was comfortable, and the complimentary hot breakfast was a nice touch. However, for the price difference between here and the Dartmouth location, I will not be back.
Booked weeks ahead directly by phone - great staff at front desk and really helpful with ideas and things to do in the Halifax area. Rooms were very clean and comfortable with wonderful beds. My wife particularly loved the warm indoor pool. Nice breakfast included - just a little crowded when a bus tour was in for one of the mornings. Different layout than most Comfort Inns; but, I will stay here again when I next come to Halifax.
Lovely place very clean we were very pleased. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was satisfying. We would stay there again without a doubt! When we booked we were quoted price after we checked in we found out they give caa discounts also which they also gave us. Thank you Comfort Inn for making our stay a pleasant one!
Multi-leveled lay out different than most Comfort Inn. Big front porch was a great place to relax and watch the harbour. Breakfast seating area is far too small for demand, although it was a very much appreciated touch to have real plates and real silverware as an option. Not only is it better for the environment, but it made us feel just a little more like guests instead of disposable paper plate people. Single Queen bed was small...almost no room between desk chair and bed/wall. AC needs updating (at least oil the fan). Bathroom clean, water pressure above average. Applaud the policy of not changing bedding or towels for stays less than 3 days, but would have appreciated a new shampoo and soap supply at the end of day one.
Rooms are small, breakfast area is small, lobby is small. But all are still adequate for the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom very clean. The pictures are a little deceiving making you think you're going to a resort in the country with a big porch to sit and look out over the water, which is sort of true except there is a major busy road and an active train track between the porch and the water. Hotel is about a 15 minute drive to the heart of the city through some busy and hectic traffic.
The room had a unpleasant smell when we entered the room. Once in the room we found left over food on the floor next to the bed. Also! on the bed skirt we noticed what looked like someone had spilled something as is had ran down to the floor.I spoke to the front desk and the girl did come to the room and remove the food and the bed shirt and offered to move us to another room. Which we declined ( we didn't want to move from one dirty room to another dirty room). The bathroom was no better, there was dirt stains on the inside of the door and upon attempting to shower the next morning after a terrible sleep not knowing if the bed had been even changed? I ran the water to take a shower, once I went to get in I noticed that the tub was filling up with water so I tried to turn the plug in order to drain it and the plug came right out. I could see why the water wasn't draining because underneath the plug was a large clump of hair which you could tell had not been cleaned in some time. I was also a little concerned as the stand up mirror was so loss from the wall that if my son had bumped it even a little it could have fallen off and hurt him. My family was there along with a group for a tournament my son was in and I can say from talking to the rest of the group that we may need to find other accommodations for the next event.
