4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here recently for a business trip. Check in at noon wasn't a problem. Rooms were clean, with lots of space, a mini fridge, microwave, and Keurig coffee maker. Lots of choices for the included breakfast buffet. Convenient location - easy to get to off Hwy 102 and close to gas stations, Tim Horton's, NSLC, and Little Caesar's pizza.

Clean,modern, comfortable, some renovations going on, but it hasn't bothered our stay, nice pool, decent breakfast, friendly staff upon check in, easy to find, close to Costco 10 mins from Halifax shopping center...

We stayed here twice, on our arrival in Halifax, and before travelling home on Labour day. The hotel is about 20 minutes away from the airport along the highway. It is easy to get downtown, and for places to eat. The staff were very friendly and helpful. On our second stay, due to stupid actions of a guest, the sprinkler system was activated which meant the lifts were out of action temporarily when we arrived. We were told we could cancel and be given a full refund. We opted to stay and two gentlemen staff kindly carried our luggage to our room on the 3rd floor. The breakfast buffet can get very busy at certain times particularly if there is a coach party staying, so you need a little patience if you come down to breakfast during the rush. Recommended. Great professional staff.

Breakfast area is too small for daily rush. Such an issue they post warning signs in the elevators. No such thing as a leisurely breakfast here. Room standard fare for HI Express. Approx 25 minutes from airport, about 15 minutes to Halifax pier.

We have come down to Halifax and stayed here numerous times. The staff are awesome! All are so friendly and helpful and could probably teach a few people in customer service roles, a lesson or 2! The rooms are comfy and the pool and water slide are great! The breakfast is my favorite part. I would love to be able to take the pancake machine home! My girlfriend loves the turkey sausage! This hotel is close to everything and super easy to get to. Can't wait to come back!

Beware of King 1bed suites if you don’t like noise! Our room was a king one bed suite so it was at the end of the hall next to the stairs and we could hear loud stomping when people where using the stairs, there is obviously no sound proofing in the stairwells. We also found the noise from the highway traffic brutal when you opened the window so you have to rely on AC. Our room also had some sort of exhaust outside our window so this adds to the noise! The window treatments are a little different from most hotels, you have to pull down 2 shades or you may wake up to too much light too early - our mistake! But we figured it out for the next night 😊 Room was spacious and clean. The cleaning staff does a great job throughout the place! Pool and hot tub are good, the room itself is very warm so if you plan to sit inside while other swim, dress lightly and bring someone cold to drink. Staff are very pleasant and accommodating, great customer service from everyone. Breakfast was ok, what you would expect from this type of hotel. Location is conveniently located off highway but flip side is the noise from this traffic. Pizza, subway, convenience store, liquor store minutes from hotel, within walking distance.

I am a top tier IHG member, not sure if they upgraded me, but we were given a 2-room suite. It had only just been decorated. There was a large hall, spacious living room with sofa and TV, and a separate bedroom with its own door. The AC worked really well on a hot Halifax day and night. The bed was superb too. The view was of the highway into Halifax but the windows were 95% soundproofed. The breakfast was the usual HIE free hot breakfast. It was a big breakfast room but was really busy: note, there was a tour bus there of Chinese visitors and they seemed to cause chaos in the breakfast area because they were all leaving at the same time. I prefer hotels that don't have tour buses for that reason. Easy free parking right outside. We will be back especially if we have that same room!!!!

I’m sorry to say I would not stay here again. The floor/hallway/room was too loud and dark/dungeon-like. I made the mistake of paying extra for a suite, which are placed adjacent to the elevators and ice machine...this equals no sleep for light sleepers. (One of my requests was to be away from the elevators) The front desk workers did give me earplugs after I couldn’t fall asleep after trying for two hours. On a positive note, the pool opens up at 5:30 am, so I was able to get a nice morning workout; and, the breakfast was great.

You get what you would expect when you stay at this hotel. Nice and clean with a pleasant staff. Breakfast and parking are complimentary. Pool has hot tub and water slide. This is a great place to stay for family travel. Probably not an ideal romantic getaway spot; for that, pay the extra and stay downtown. Inevitably you will hear a child shriek or a door shut throughout the evening and morning, but it quiets down at night. This hotel is only a painless 15 minute drive to downtown Halifax and all the sites. The location is also good because it’s conveniently located next to gas stations, pharmacies and Tim Hortons. And right off the highway.

I tend to stay at Holiday Inns whenever I can because of the standard of excellence that I have found among their various sites across New York State. When I booked my vacation for Nova Scotia, I knew I wanted to book with Holiday Inn again knowing what I "should" encounter and I wasn't disappointed. The hotel was clean, the breakfast areas were always stocked and kept organized even with the literal bus load of guests each day. Would defiantly suggest to anyone traveling here.
