Clean hotel near Ferry crossing

Posted Mar 21, 2014
Pros: Clean and comfortable
Cons: Our room next to the was next to stairwell and it was obvious that is was used for smoking. We could smell it in our bathroom.
Location: Just a couple of blocks from the ferry terminal crossing to get over to Halifax.
We were greeted by a friendly staff. He helped us with all the information that we needed!

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your stay. Although we do not have a restaurant on property, there are many fantastic options within a very short walking distance to chose from. The view from your room does depend on its location, we do indeed have many that have a lovely harbourview, and others that look out to the city of Dartmouth. I am sorry we did not live up to your expectations, perhaps on a future visit we could arrange to have you booked into a harbourview room.

Good hotel near everything

Posted Mar 14, 2014
Pros: Would have liked an ocean view.
Cons: Temperature of room was hard to control. No temperature dial to set number amount of temp desired. Had dial for fan or heat and choice was high or lo
Location: Close to pirates cove. great adventure. Close to bridge and shopping.
Check in was not great welcome and I was told to use my sense of direction. Staff change made huge difference and rest of stay was great. Would go again but would request ocean view on sixth floor for non smoking.

hotel OK staff meh!

Posted Dec 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Front desk clerk needed an etiquette lesson. First pulled up, she was outside smoking, roughly asked if I was checking in, then asked me if I wanted to change the name on my res. as she thought my name was Feminine, then looked at just me and wanted to know why I booked a suite! ignorant is a compliment to this woman! Lovely suite, a bit dated, but great kitchen area, lovely cupboards, but not a thing in them! not a glass, a dish, cutlery, nada! first time I closed the bathroom door the smoke detector fell off the wall. reasonable value for dollar, but staff was lacking!
