Horrible! Do not stay here

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Absolutely nothing! Even the refurbished rooms were not good. Ground floor was smelly and dirty and the bathrooms and rooms were not clean.
Cons: Everything needs improvement.. From room cleanliness to the horrible breakfast. You should have disposable plates and cutlery. It is so gross.
Location: Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Does not look like a good neighbourhood.
We just returned from here. Expedia had lovely pictures of the hotel. Turned out to be a nightmare. Kids refused to stay here. The rooms looked dark and dusty. The hallways were smelly. The breakfast was terrible. We had to stand for a long time till plates arrived. They were dirty gross plates. You should at least have disposable plates. The waitress had to serve coffee or tea and her priority was to the customers buying the five dollar breakfast. Event he refurbished rooms were not up to standard. We also stayed in days inn Sydney, and that was worse than this, thought the breakfast there was better.. I will not recommend The days Inn chain of hotels to anyone.

poor

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: not much of anything to be honest
Cons: Staff and conditions of the hotel
Location: there are a lot of things to do and you are close to most everything in Dartmouth
the breakfast was a very poor set up , people had to wait for food to be brought out their was a young lady going around with coffee and you had your breakfast almost gone by the time you got your coffee and they never asked what type of coffee we wanted ( decaf ) we went out for lunch the 3 day we were their and when we came back we had ants all over the counter when we call the front desk the young girl really did not know what to do she was half expecting for us to stay in that room that night . So finally she decided to move us to another room and that room was on the second floor with no elevator we had to carry 4 big suitcases up the steers and I have 3 blockages . we got that done and I asked the young girl to tell the manager that I would like to see him first thing in the morning and the next morning I had to go to see him and when I asked if he knew what problems I had he never knew a thing just nothing was passed on to him so he said . The manager gave us a night free but just the way we were treated first thing the manager said to me when I explained to him what happened he said it was that time of the year and those things happen not a very good answer for someone who is on vacation trying to enjoy our vacation time. We are still in Dartmouth on vacation but we are staying at another hotel ( Travelodge ) we are sorry we never booked here first .

Days Inn Dartmouth

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: Staff was very friendly.
Cons: Cleanliness. The hallways were dirty and had an odour. The room itself had holes in the wall.
Location: Shopping is nearby, and easy access to the bridges to get into Halifax.
The parking and lobby are accessible, and the front desk staff are excellent, both competent and friendly. Unfortunately, the room itself was lacking, as there were stains & holes in the walls, and the ice-maker was out of order. I wasn't expecting a lot out of the hotel, but I was expecting more. The hallways had an unpleasant odour, and the overall impression was that of an out-of-the way roadside motel in the middle of nowhere, not a competitive hotel in a prosperous, busy environment.

Would not stay here again

Posted Jul 31, 2014
This hotel is very dated. The beds sagged and the room was dreary. You could hear people coming and going starting at 4:30 am. The buffet breakfast was good.

It was close to Halifax, without the big price tag

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: The restaurant's food was very good and plentiful. The waiter was quite friendly and gave us good information.
Cons: Place folks away from the highway when inside rooms are available.
Location: Much to do in Halifax itself. Great duck tour of the harbor and city, nice boardwalk with the merchants along the way, interesting museums to visit.
It smelled old. The staff placed us right next to the major highway, so the noise made it difficult to get a good night's sleep. UGH!!! There were many rooms on the inside corridor away from the highway available.

Day's Inn, Dartmouth

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Quiet, clean, good breakfast, friendly staff
Cons: a fridge in the room should be standard, the ice maker and ATM should be fixed ASAP
Location: not close to shopping district or other locations, had to take taxi or bus.
My room was clean, the staff were helpful and friendly, but I had a single room that did not have a fridge, the ice maker was out of order ( for a long time I was told) and I had to walk downstairs to another section of the hotel to find a working ice maker. There was a fridge in my travelling companions rooms.The ATM was out of order. The room did have great air conditioning and was very quiet. Only had a service elevator for luggage only.

not so great

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Cons: eating area
Location: location was ok
The eating area not so great. The breakfast was the same thing everyday for 7 days. Many times there was not any food had to wait or plates to eat from. Only one person working on the floor needed more people. Had room service only is you order before nine pm because they closed. No put in having any room service if you can't get it.

Clean room but far from Darmouth

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The heating worked which was great since it got cold at night.
Cons: I would remove the old carpets in the dining room. As a vegetarian I would prefer if they didn't have bacon at breakfast.
Location: Its far from Darmouth. Its ok if you have a car, other wise its better to stay closer to the city. It is close to the Micmac lake and shopping centre.
I liked staying in the Days Inn Dartmouth. The room was clean, there is no carpet, which usually causes me to get an allergic reaction. I stayed there alone and I felt safe. The only challenge was the transportation, since I didn't have a car. If you take the bus to Darmouth, I recomand to wave when the bus passes, since it didn't stop when I waited in the station. You can also take a taxi to ferry (about $10 - $13). The ferry from Darmouth to Halifax is cheap. (around $2) To the airport, you will need to go to the Bridge terminal in Darmouth and catch the airport bus from there.
