Why is there not always 2 of everything?

Posted Jun 16, 2015
Pros: Good breakfast excellent staff who can cope in an emergency such as when the fire alarm went off through an electrical fault
Location: Wonderful view over the river. Easy access to the major road out.
This hotel very good and the staff were excellent but because new beds had been put in the rooms the comfy chair had been removed and not replaced . The member of staff on reception provided a metal dining chair which was no good for my wife as she has a bad back. The manager allowed me to use an outside chair which was more comfortable.

We appreciate the review. I apologize for the lack of additional chairs in our guestrooms although I’m happy we were able to provide another chair that suited your needs.

Very friendly helpful staff

Biggest drawback was the location of the hotel. Was not a good location for getting to and from various sightseeing locations. On the other hand staff went out of their way to print out directions. Regarding the room. Rather small and smelled like it had been a smoking room at one time.

Thank you for our comments. Our hotel is located near the Industrial Park in Dartmouth although we have easy access to the bridges and highways. We hope to have you back as our guest again in the future.

Very loud!

Posted Apr 7, 2015 on Hotels
We chose to stay at the Travelodge Dartmouth for a quiet night away. However, the evening we chose to stay, there seemed to be some kind of hockey tournament going on in the area resulting in lots of very noisy children and their noisy, intoxicated parents gathering in one of their rooms in the hotel. It was extremely loud--you could hear people above you any time they walked around their room, doors banging closed and people talking. The room wasn't great and it wasn't horrible, but there are hotels in Halifax cheaper or at the same cost per night that are a lot nicer and a lot more quiet. We will not be staying at Travelodge Dartmouth again due to the lack of quiet, peace and relaxation during our weekend getaway!

Hello Amanda, I would like to express my apologies that you were not able to enjoy a quiet night away at our hotel. Unfortunately we did have some issues with the hockey tournament and I’d like to ensure you that is not typical of our hotel. We will address those concerns for future tournaments and we’d love for you to come back and stay with us again.

Hi Janine, We do our best to keep noise level to a minimum when we have a full house and I apologize that was not up to our normal standards. We will review the breakfast options available for future changes.

smoking and snow

Posted Mar 19, 2015
Pros: Location. Hot breakfast with pancakes.
Cons: a better equipped snow removal contractor. More equipment for patrons who are able to shovel their vehicle out.
1. We were booked in a non smoking room on the top (3rd) floor. Our room was listed as non smoking, and we were instructed to initial the no smoking policy. When we arrived on our floor, we noticed cigarette smoke in the air in the hallway. Our room was no smoking and I believe that no one smoked in the room. The problem was a few doors down from us were rooms that DID NOT have no smoking on their door and it was very clear that there WAS smoking in those rooms. From the smoking rooms, the heater/air conditioner draws air from the outside and pushed the smoke in the hallway and then into our room making our stay unpleasant. 2. When we stayed there, it had snowed profusely. There is nothing that can be done about that, however there was also nothing done about getting vehicles out from behind the 3 foot plow banks left behind by their contractor. Handicapped and elderly were left to fend for themselves and all they had was one flimsy, plastic shovel. The hotel was not at all prepared for heavy snowfall which, in the Maritimes, is a certainty.

Hello Brad, We appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey. I would like to express my apologies with the smoke smell making your stay unpleasant as we have some smoking rooms located on the third floor. Unfortunately we also experienced a large winter storm during you stay and we will address your concerns with our staff and contractor.
