Posted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: everything
The hotel was close to everything we wanted to see and do. (shopping, the Tattoo, etc.) The pool was very clean and not at all crowded. Dry pool towels were handily placed. The staff was friendly and the hotel was nice and clean.

Very nice Hotel

Posted Jul 9, 2014
The hotel have a very nice location, close to the MacDonald bright, a main bus stop, so you can come or go to the airport using public transportation. And it is just 3 blocks from the ferry stop, plus have some stores around Tim Hortons, Shopperdrugmart, Mc Donals, dollarama, subway. Etc The room are very comfortable and clean. The swimming look normal is no big but is not small neighter

Appreciate the ease

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: No damage deposit required!
Cons: Could use some minor updates in the rooms like bath fixtures and tiles but nothing makes it look bad.
Location: We were able to get to our hotel without using the bridge and it was n difficult to find or navigate not the hotel. Food options great!
Loving the fact that this hotel is close to downtown without the high prices. I also appreciate this hotl for not requiring a cash/money deposit for incidentals at check in. Who wants to pay a second time for their room? It is nice just to have my credit card on file but not be charged then credited after. Keep this policy! It sets you apart from all the others. This hotel is well kept and clean. Maybe I have low expectation but I have never had any problems with cleanliness. I was even worried booking through an outside source figuring we may have problems during check in but nothing but smiles and welcomes. Great job both holiday inn and expedia!

Great hotel

Posted Jun 22, 2014
The hotel was amazing, comfortable and clean! Everything was perfect and quiet. The staff was great and very polite. Only downfall was not knowing we had to pay an extra 9.95 plus tax for parking per night of our stay until we got there. After paying hundreds of dollars to stay to be made to pay for parking without choice of refusal so we could park somewhere else. Other then that amazing hotel and would stay over and over again! Beautiful hotel and very great stay!

Best Staff

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: I liked the waitress in the restaurant, Theresa! But all staff were exceptional
Cons: Bar fridges in all the rooms and small microwaves
Location: Was located exactly where we wanted to be - across from the Dartmouth Sportplex.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds were sooooo comfortable. Would defiantly stay there again

Better then you might think...

Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: Location close to downtown Halifax
Cons: Higher room with a view would've been nice but not a dealbreaker
We originally started our search for a hotel in Halifax but the price point was higher than we'd hoped for. Several hotels in Dartmouth kept popping up on the search and we finally decided to choose on Holiday Inn express. Although several people from Halifax laughed at us when they heard we are staying in Dartmouth and even said "why would you stay there" this had is a little worried. However it was all for naught! The hotel is situated right beside one of the bridges over into Halifax as well as a short three minute walk to the ferry dock. Access to Halifax was extremely easy as we were able to drive, take a taxi or the local ferry. The hotel was clean spacious and staff very accommodating with lots of parking. I would have no hesitation staying at this location again.

Congratulations on discovering us at the Holiday Inn Harbourview. We think we are Dartmouth's best kept secret and it’s great to see that you think as we do! The team here at the hotel and myself are delighted to know that you have had a great time with us and that you would have no hesitations staying with us again.

The worst Holiday Inn I have ever stayed!

Posted Jun 8, 2014
Hard to imagine how small the bath room is. Bought a parking ticket from Holiday Inn parking lots, but when I checked in the staff told me I had to pay the parking fee directly to them, so I paid the parking fee twice!

A bed of rocks

Posted May 19, 2014
The room was very clean however the movie channel is there you can't use it. The bed was the most uncomfortable I've ever had. The heating system is prehistoric and it was beyond hot too bad because the location is perfect and the room is super clean.

Thank you for your comments. We regret to read that you were unable to get a good night’s sleep during your recent stay with us. And for the inconveniences caused by the heating system, we have notified our maintenance department to make repairs. In future, we encourage you to make your feelings known whilst at the hotel, as there may have been elements that we may have been able to put right for you.

Combining business with pleasure

Posted May 15, 2014
Pros: Great conference facilities; room rate very reasonable; short ferry ride over to Halifax!
Location: Fairly close to the airport; about 20 minute ride. Hotel was a 5 minute walk to the ferry over to Halifax!
Attended a conference on site. The conference facilities were great - nice large ballroom, technical staff were great; food was very good. Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights - very nice room with balcony. Always nice to be able to open the door to get fresh air and step outside. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful.
