Overall, it was well (beds clean and comfortable, shower clean, etc.), however, there are more hotels around that are more comfortable as far as the room set up, space, etc. The double taples for desks does not allow for a comfortable seat. The top one is too high, forcing you to pull out the lower one in which there isn't any room to pull out. The […] heating/cooling units are out of date. Traffic is very heavy at the location.

"Not modern but clean"
I was disappointed that the room did not have a refrigerator or microwave and parking is additional. Other then that the room was very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the Ferry to Halifax"
Did not like having to pay for parking but otherwise it was great. The front desk staff were superb in providing change for the ferry and information on where to go and what to see and just chatting. The room was clean and well maintained. At full capacity the water pressure and hot water were always at full flow on the sixth floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice room, bad location, outdoor pool is in front of the dining room, which seems like a strange location, no view.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean and comfortable. Only thing is that you have to pay for parking, was not notified before hand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We found the bed very uncomfortable. As it was not firm enough, and with all the padding on the bed itself, it felt too hot underneath the sheets. Making for an uncomfortable night's sleep. But clear of that our stay was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Halifax - Harbourview Many thanks for bringing this to our attention and we are sorry to hear of the sleep troubles you encountered. We appreciate your comments and hope to be your hotel of choice on your next trip to Dartmouth or Halifax.
We love it and will come back again sometime soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Halifax - Harbourview Jason, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Holiday Inn Harbourview. It is always a pleasure to hear from our guests that have great experiences with us and we can't wait to have you back.
The hotel was good but I think we got a bad room. The heat didn't work so it was so cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Halifax - Harbourview Dear Ken, Glad to hear you liked the Holiday Inn Harbourview. I apologize for the inconvenience that you had with the heater in your room. This type of problem can occasionally occur in older buildings such as ours. This is an issue that we will be working on in the near future when our hotel undergoes various improvements. Again, we do thank you for sharing your experience and we would welcome the opportunity to once again have you as our guest.
Excellent location for venues in both Halifax & Dartmouth. Impressive to see recycling bins in each room. Exceptionally friendly staff, both front desk and cleaning staff. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"The Hampton is much better at the same price"
The room did not smell fresh,did not seem clean. I stayed at the Hampton the next night for the same price and it was much much betterGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in Dartmouth"
Stayed two nights, three people. Beds were comfortable, but bathroom was small and needed updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to Halifax."
Dinner in Cafe 101 was quite good; however, although the breakfast offered decent selection the quality of the eggs, ham, and bacon was near unacceptable. Bathroom appeared to be clean but had an odor of uncleanliness.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
Great experience :) Just a short walk to the ferryGenuine Expedia guest review
disappointing for a Holiday Inn, oviously very old, rooms need upgradingGenuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Restaurant and Bar Closed."
Restaurant and bar closed for the evening due to a wedding reception. Found this awkward. All else was fine....staff PARTICULARLY friendly and helpful in all ways. Recommended.....if all one needs is a good place to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
disappointing outside noise small bathroom uncomfortable beds damaged ceilingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel , traffic very busy"
Good hotel very clean and friendly staff. Didn't like that you had to pay for parking to stay at their establishment and hotel is close to the toll bridge so traffic very busy. Overall good hotel for the priceGenuine Expedia guest review
Situated in a good location in Dartmouth, close to ferry or bridge to Halifax. Nice outdoor pool. Staff is very friendly, vey willing to help out with any issue.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very handy location"
Friendly and helpful staff and a quick trip across the Macdonald bridge puts this hotel high on my list for a return visit to Halifax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
GreatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel. We had 3 kids with us but only room for 2. Because there was no portable bed available they came up with a solution for our youngest. They improvised a little bed with some sofa cushions. We appreciated the gesture and the little one slept well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would Stay Here Again :)"
Friendly staff and clean rooms. Great view of the harbour.Genuine Expedia guest review
The only problem with this hotel is the bathroom. It is tiny and does not have a hand wash sink it is on the other side of the entrance hall. A very strange set up.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, nice rooms, good food . Close to the ferry only 5 minute walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a pleasant time & been going there a lot of times to get away for a couple of days ,very friendly & good service .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very satisfied, 2nd time I stay at this hotel and will probably stay there again next trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice place to visit in Dartmouth"
Nice hotel close to transit services and the harbourGenuine Expedia guest review
very good!!! very clean and the quality of the staff is great!!! The comfort ant condition of the room was excellentGenuine Expedia guest review
"Refurbished but bathrooms need updating too."
The hotel was clean and convenient and the room was well furnished and looked like it had new bedding etc. The bathroom was old, the tub looked like it had been reglazed and fixtures not great. It was convenient but I would probably look for somewhere a bit more up to date.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was a good one night stay. Breakfest was great a filling the staff very friendly. Guess its been awhile since I stayed a hotel as I was surprised that I was charges for parking but guess its the norm now.Genuine Expedia guest review
"New Year's Eve"
It was our first time staying here at this hotel and there is nothing bad I can say about this experience. I would recommend this hotel to evryone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would never recommend"
The stay at the hotel was horrible the staff weren't helpful they never even asked how out stay was. We were kept up until 3am by other guests yelling and partying as well as a band playing downstairs. Worst hotel experience of my life.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room lovely, roomy, full amenities. Breakfast very good and within reasonable price. Location good. My second or third stay here, but ask for a room with a balcony high up for a really good view of the harbour.Genuine Expedia guest review
"at conference there.did not travel much"
Good food, good serviveGenuine Hotels.com guest review
goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
awesome stay , great staff , great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A busy hotel -- but one that provides comfort and quiet. The adjacent bridge traffic can be an inhibitor to moving around and getting into Halifax but off rush hours it's OK. Probably great for business people. The dining room was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely choose to stay at the Holiday Inn Harbourview again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little tired - but still a great place!"
The staff are simply remarkable! From the young lady at the front desk to the housekeeping staff, everyone is concerned that your stay is as good as it can be.The facility itself is in need of a major overhaul to bring it up to a standard that is befitting the room rate! Location is directly across the harbour from Halifax. While tour boats charge a […] $25 bill to take you for a ride in Halifax Harbour, $2 will get you a nice 10 minute ride across the harbour to the heart of downtown Halifax...the terminal is a brief walk from the hotel.

Special mention for Tia, Front Desk; Theresa, Restaurant and Jo-Anne, bar. These people endeavoured and suceeded in making our stay of 6 nights memorable. Try to get an odd number room as high as you can for great views of the Harbour. Great location on opposite side of river to Halifax which is easily reached by bus or preferably ferry which is an […] experience in itself Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

great location to halifax ferry. Not too much close by for restarurants but downtown halifax is very close vith many options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a great room."
The sink was across the hall from the bathroom, that was odd. I have a few complaints- the bathroom was dusty (thick dust in some areas) and there was a hair on the ledge of the tub, we were not notified of the parking charge upon arrival. We would be fine with charges if they were mentioned before the bill came. The room was fine, the firm/soft pillow […] signs were a great touch. We mentioned that it would have been nicer if the room had been cleaner but the staff at the front desk didn't seem too concerned. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the first time I have ever been asked to pay for parking. I would have thought that the price we paid / night would have covered that. Other than that, no complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we stayed 2 nights June 22 & 23 in room 410 and thought the room was just average....the bathroom could really use some upgrading. The food was excellent in the 101 cafe however they are renovating and should be running power tools when customers are not there. twice this happened which was very frustrating as having a conversation was near impossi […] ble....
