Recent guest reviews

One night stay, traveling through NS the hotel is clean, quiet, has onsite restaurant and large car park. Our room was well appointed and modern with fridge and microwave. Centrally located on Truro's Prince St the hotel is within walking distance of downtown restaurants and bars.

We showed up here mid afternoon and had no problem getting a reasonably priced room with two beds. The hotel,is located close to the center of town. AN excellent Buffett breakfast was included. We also had drinks in their adjacent bar. Superb prime rib dinner at Bistro 22! Truro is a nice place to overnight between Halifax and Cape Breton Island.

The hotel was clean. The staff were very friendly. breakfast was OK but not included in price. The conference room was a little smaller than we are used to, but sufficient. The food there was good but a little pricey. All in all not to bad of a hotel

Booked this hotel last minute and they were so accommodating! They had a crib which was perfect for the baby, provided us with some necessities, and had great front desk customer service. The breakfast buffet was good and hotel was quiet.

Our experience with this Holiday Inn was very good. The front desk staff was exceptionally friendly and very knowledgeable about Truro and environs. We arrived late in the day without reservations, but perhaps because of our IHG club membership, they were able to find us a room. Our room was a standard hotel room that could use some renovation but was clean. The bed was comfortable, the shower had good water pressure. We did not use any of the facilities like the gym and pool, nor did we get the full breakfast that everyone else mentioned. Because our room was at the ground level facing the parking lot, there was some noise from people arriving or leaving, in particular some motorcyclists. Also the only day light came from the window facing the parking lot, but because of people walking by we had to keep the curtains closed for some privacy. Since we were only staying for a night this was not much of an issue, but if we were to stay longer, we would request a room at a higher level.

Smooth seamless check in. Staff was very friendly & helpful. We found our room was very clean and comfortable. Comfortable beds. We liked the microwave, fridge & coffee maker in the room. Convenient location. Staff was helpful in suggestion local restaurants.

This hotel was very large - in general. The rooms were standard hotel size but exceptionally clean. The people working at the hotel could not have been more friendly or helpful. There is a restaurant in the hotel. The food and the service was very good. I would definitely stay here again.

From the moment we arrived we had a great greeting from Krystal on reception and her colleague. Lovely comfortable room and, most importantly, bed. Quiet night too which was a bonus. The breakfast buffet was the best one we have had in a hotel chain since arriving on Canada nearly three weeks ago. Incredible choice and all you can eat. Lovely waitress Cindy. Great touch leaving a guitar in the bar for guests to play.

Holiday Inn better get their inspectors out to check this place. It is gross. Horrible would be another good description of this so called hotel. If you like dog hair all over the place and lots of dogs occupying their rooms this is the place. If you like bathtubs that are clogged up when taking a shower, this is the place. Rooms are old and dirty and have not been upgraded in who knows how many years. We were itchy all night and cannot tell from what. Sheets and pillows were so old and worn and flattened down. TV remote did not work unless you were standing next to TV. Refrigerator was making a gurgling sounds all night. Fitness room equipment was rusty and worn out like from the year one. When these matters were brought up to the front desk, all we got was a typical response, "We are sorry perhaps sometime in the future we will make changes." Really bad. Stay away unless you are looking for punishment

Ours was a 4th floor west facing room. We arrived late afternoon in September and the room temperature was almost unbearable. One tiny opening window that achieved little in cooling and an aircon unit that seemed to shut itself down after 10 minutes cooling. No attempt to cool the room in advance of our arrival - the staff must have known but did nothing. Definitely recommend you avoid the west facing rooms. The room itself was a good size, clean, with a reasonable list of available TV channels. The bathroom was also a good size with excellent shower pressure. Breakfast was included in our room rate and included a hot buffet with egg, potato and bacon in addition to the cold continental fare. Overall a good room, but it would have been so much better on the other side of the building.
