Very friendly helpful staff

Posted May 26, 2015
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.

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.

Very basic hotel in poor location.

Posted Feb 28, 2015
Pros: The staff were pleasant.
I would not stay here again nor recommend it . I felt very uncomfortable in the location the hotel was in, both the area of town and the access road to the hotel. I did not feel safe in that area.The rating was not indicative of the property which was very disappointing. I had booked two nights , but checked out after one.

Favourite place to stay in Halifax/Dartmouth a

Posted Jan 24, 2015 
We always try to stay at Travelodge when visiting in Halifax area. We find it is excellent value, good hot breakfast and parking included, and good location for visiting in Halifax Dartmouth area. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. We have only had minor issues, most recent visit, we could only put the light on in the bathroom with the fan going at the same time which was noisy. Other than that always find it very comfortable and clean.

Hi Lesley and thank you for your feedback. I apologize for the issue you experienced with the bathroom fan as some fans are connected to the lights and will operate while the light is in use. We will address this with maintenance and correct it immediately.
