Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I did not like anything about bluenose Inn and Suites . The room was not clean. The power was out and their was not a back up generator to accommodate their guess or water, the service was poor. I would not recommend Bluenose Inn and Suites to anyone. The location was good.
