"nice hotel very clean pool"
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"
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"
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"
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!

"Better then you might think..."
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.

"Nice hotel, but......"
The hotel was nice, I restaurant was also very good. We were issued a non-working key card..which we had to go back to the front desk to have another issued to us. The location was good, and next to the city and highways. We booked the hotel through Hotels. com, and wasn't happy with the rate, because it was different than advertised on the internet, we though we were getting breakfast included, but were not, even asked the front desk, and we were denied that request. Also in the early part of the evening there was a barking dog in the next room.

"Very Disappointing"
We found the hotel very noisy as we could hear EVERYTHING the children in the next room had to say. A bill for parking slipped under our door during the night was a shock. We have stayed in hotels around the world and never had to pay for parking before. The cost of breakfast was excessive. The hotel we stayed in the night before had a wonderful FREE continental breakfast. Very disappointing experience.

Got the king suite. Few was great but no mini fridge and a less then inspiring bathroom. Certainly not anything special. Parking was annoying. You are in machine pay lot but they will also try to charge parking to your room. Wonder how many people have paid outside and got charged to the room.

"Less than Expected"
There were several minor issues which caused me to feel I was getting less than expected: 1) Only a mini-fridge was available. A micro-wave was never delivered, despite checking in at 3pm on Wednesday and staying until Sunday, a microwave was never made available. 2) The in-room movie service was unavailable upon check-in, and when inquired, were told that there was a malfunction. However, on Friday when I inquired again, I was told that the contract had ended, and they didn't have another provider. 3) I received neither the morning newspaper or the refund for not getting the newspaper. However, they never charged me for parking, so I'll call that a wash. (Despite really wanting access to the news) 4) Unrelated to the hotel specifically, but the exit to the main-street/Dartmouth Sportsplex was locked after 5pm and on the weekend. If the hotel sells itself as easy access to the Sportsplex, then the access to the crosswalk ought not be locked.

"Disappointing tired room."
The hotel staff seemed to be hard to access. The cleaning staff are very helpful, kind and go out of their way to help. The rest of the staff although polite they are not very helpful. I had asked why I was not given an executive room like I had paid for and was told that I would have to sacrifice the balcony to move to an executive room because they didn't save one for my booking. They said And I quote, I should be happy with what I had because it was considered an upgrade anyway. It was a king bed and did have a small writing desk in it. I asked for a cork screw and waited 45 minutes to get one and there were pieces missing. The desk chair was broken and could not be adjusted up so difficult to sit in. I ordered room service breakfast and it took well over an hour to receive it even though I was told it would be 20 minutes. Then it arrived and the order was partially wrong. The server told me he could fix it if I really wanted him too. The bathroom in the room was very small and difficult to move around in and the tub stopper did not work and the water drained all out when I tried to take a bath. The room overall was tired looking and contains no closet and shallow drawers that are filled with pillows and blankets. It was very difficult to get through to the front desk, the phone would ring and ring at one time I counted 30 times then hung up. Many attempts need to be made before there is a response.

"A good improvement"
Our second stay at this hotel and the internal decor has been modernised.We chose this hotel as a good place to stay after picking up our hire car from the nearby airport as it has free parking and is more easily accessible than hotels across the water in Halifax.The ferry across the water to Halifax is a short walk away from the Hotel.Near the hotel are several fast food outlets and 2 Tim Hortons!The adjacent Mac Donald bridge has a spectacular walk with views of the harbour.

"Dartmouth Stay"
Overall it was okay. The hotel was in Dartmouth (1/2 hour walk over McDonald Bridge to Halifax Harbour). We booked it by mistake (thought we were booking right in Halifax) but turned out to be fine and not a major inconvenience which we were worried about. The restaurant was okay, it seemed fairly quiet. We asked for a room facing the Harbour which he changed for us. One thing we didn't like is you had to pay for parking ($10 per night). Also, the pillows were very uncomfortable.

The front desk clerk was unpleasant. She was snippy and even rolled her eyes at a guest when they called down stairs for services. When the next shift came in the front desk clerk was great! The room smelled a little musty, but it was nice to have a balcony we opened the doors let the room air out. The bed was really really comfortable. The room had the smallest bathroom! The sink and mirror were in a seperate room that the tub and toilet wich was different... And a little awkward. But all in all a very homely feeling ; very comfortable
