      Very good

      Very good location, directly at the Waterfront. Some rooms have a sea view.

      All the equipment is in need of renovation. The bathroom's a little messy. Staff is ready to help.

    • 7.8
      Very good

      The location of the hotel directly on the promenade is ingenious.

      Unfortunately the hotel was totally booked out at our arrival. Instead of receiving a room with two double beds as ordered, we got a room with a king size bed for 4 persons (2 adults / 2 children). Unfortunately there were no more extra beds available. It was a somewhat uncomfortable first night in Canada!

      The breakfast buffet was very good and plentiful. The location is excellent.

      The price-performance ratio is poor, the accommodation is too expensive.

      Perfect

      the location is ideal. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful & went out of their way to help us when our car rental fell through and we needed to find another car. I would come back in a heartbeat!

      Very good

      We always stay here and have a fabulous/relaxing time. The hotel has a great location and is comfortable. The staff are friendly.

      We normally stay here any time we are in Halifax and have great accommodations, however this time we stayed in a room with two double beds/ rather than a King- which is what we requested. The room had no window to the outside, but rather a pool side entry. I would have liked advance notice of this. I would have booked a room elsewhere.

      Guest rating

      Staff were pretty nice.

      Had very bad experience in this hotel. When driving into the parking lot, I scraped one of my wheels. The path into the underground parking lot is very narrow with sharp curbs on both sides. Be very careful if u have a wider car. The rooms are nothing special. Most of the motels I stayed at had nicer rooms. The worst part about this hotel is the noises you hear coming for the hallway and other rooms. I could hear the conversations on both sides. The door has one inch gap on the bottom and half inch gap on top. I had trouble falling asleep and was forced awake by guests moving through the hallways and a bunch of girls staying in on the rooms next door. This is coming from a person who is not easily woken by noises. Defiantly not a hotel for couples who want to fool around.

      It was amazing for location, comfort and convenience. The pool was nice and Starbucks is always a nice feature.

      Access to the casino.

      Our room had a bad smell. When we arrived the window was open and each time the room was cleaned the staff left the window open.

    • 10.0
      Perfect

      We went to halifax to see a concert that was held at the casino.the convenience of having the hotel attached via the pedway was great.we just parked the car in the parking garage and did not have to move it from there to enjoy our evening.then we went to the casino,spent a few hours there playing the machines and a few drinks,then we just had to get the elevator to our room,very convenient.the hotel is quite comfortable and conveniently located by the boardwalk as well for daily walking.

      The only inconvenience we encountered was having to get on 2 different elevators to go from parking garage to our room.i thought the parking should have been included and a complimentary breakfast would be nice.even if u add an extra few dollars to the price of the room to include these.it would look better in the package.we had a very nice comfortable king bed.we enjoyed our stay very much.

    • 8.2
      Great

      The location did meet my needs.

      I felt that booking on line I paid a higher price. They should include the parking in their price up front. I thought the price was over the top.
