"Cheaper & close to Halifax and its sights"
Our stay was great. No problems with the hotel at all. Rooms were clean, service was friendly and helpful, breakfast satisfied my four teenagers and the location was awesome for getting to Halifax by ferry or the bridge. The ferry was one block away and cheaper then paying for parking in Halifax to walk around and enjoy the Harbor and all its attractions. […] It was a cheaper and quieter alternative to staying right in Halifax. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was decent size, not huge. Beds were comfortable in my opinion. Room was clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Adequate continental breakfast, close to the ferry to Halifax. The room was comfortable and clean, however the bathrooms could use un upgrade and the is a lack of outlets to plug in phones, coffee maker,etc. The price was very reasonable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price per night it was just fine. We were not looking for a number of amenities as we just wanted a bed for the night. The breakfast included was great. It was conveniently located for our visit as we were in Cole Harbour for a family function and it was easy to get there from the hotel. For an older hotel, it was just fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
best pillows in any hotel, EVER! The street was quiet and the veranda was nice to sit out on.Genuine Expedia guest review
"St. John stop over...."
This hotel is aging and appears to have had some updates done recently. The only downside is that the rooms are very small. The beds were the best!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wouldn't stay here"
Staff were unfriendly, hotel room was smelly and dirty, left after the first night and the lady at the front desk didnt even ask us how it was or why we we're leaving.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not the Best... But for the Price it's OK"
Only spent one night. The room itself was fine. Nothing amazing, but it was comfortable and clean. However, the front desk service wasn't great. In fact, the lady who checked me in upon arrival was a bit rude. The worst part was having to go back not once, not twice, but THREE times to the front desk because each time I tried to get into the room that […] was assigned to me, there was already someone in there! So there was obviously an issue... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The pillow should be changed"
Everything is fine. The air conditioning is too noisy. The pillow is uncomfortable. They really should change a better pillow.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A quiet, clean and economical stay!"
This Hotel was more then I thought it would be. It was very quiet and the staff was excellent!! The breakfast although there was days it ran out early was one of the best I have ever experienced. Lots of amenities very close to hotel too!! I would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An older building with a nice view"
This hotel has been there a long time and it could use some better care and updates. I think that I order to give Nova Scotia's dwindling tourism industry a boost, hotels like this one should lower their prices a bit to allow more folks to visit. This hotel has a nice view and is in a good location for Dartmouth, a stone's throw to the ferry terminal. […] The continental breakfast was average. The stay was average.

"Oceanview Hotel, Dartmouth"
Great View of Halifax Harbour. Close to all amenities. Outdated, but alright for a place to rest while traveling.Genuine Expedia guest review
So my girlfriend & I decided to stay at the Oceanview Hotel, and it was probably the worst decision for a hotel stay. First off, with a name as "Oceanview" should we not have an ocean view from our room, we didn't - we had a view of the Dartmouth suburbia. As it being our own little getaway we decided to purchase a suite. There was nothing special about […] this room, there was a king size bed, but it was hard as a rock. When we first checked in, the lady at the front desk forgot to take my payment for the room, and only took the damage deposit (which I payed cash). She then realized as we were walking out for dinner, this may be a common mistake. We had a non smoking suite - which upon our arrival, our room, had a distasteful odour that resembled smoke and other things, we thought about asking to switch rooms, as we didn't want our damage deposit to be held. We didn't. The damage deposit was quite high.. I have stayed in fancier hotels with the damage deposit being less than half.. We were only in our hotel room for probably only 1 hour prior to going to bed. Upon checkout in the morning - an attendant had to clear the room, before they could return the damage deposit. The front desk received a call saying that they were going to keep our damage deposit as they claimed we smoked in our room - and there were ashes on the balcony. This was a total shock to me, as both my girlfriend and myself are non smokers. I ended up paying three times the price for a room for 1 night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for the money!"
We had a wonderful suite room that was offered in a package special...it was great, plenty of room to move around and even a quiet corner for reflection. Balcony a plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"July 2013 three-day stay"
Staff were courteous and helpful. Only problem was that one could not dial out from the phone in the room. The hotel phone problem was a week old. Location is handy to the Dartmouth/Halifax Ferry terminal. Continental breakfast is adequate but not inspiring.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was quite friendly & check in/check out was fast! :) Wonderful continental breakfast served in the morning including bagels, toast, muffins & yogurt.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible do not go in thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Weird set up...TV was in a different room than the beds. A bit run down. Not a great start to our vacation, but heh, it's just a place to sleep, right? However, according to my better half, she would absolutely not recommend a stay at this divey little hole.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The lady at the front desk was rude and not helpful. I also witnessed her being rude to another customer. Recently, the name changed from Super 8 to Oceanview. I was not aware of this change and finding the hotel was difficult. Told to park in a back parking lot where there were no signs. Parking lot was full of pot holes and difficult to get around […] in. Told to carry our luggage up a set of wooden stairs in to a back door which never existed. Hotel is very dated and smelled through out. I was glad we only had to stay one night. Breakfast time; items were not replenish once emptied, coffee, juice, bread etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was basic, but clean and comfortable and very close to the Alderney Landing ferry terminal for access to Halifax. Also on good bus routes for Dartmouth and Halifax and close to the Dartmouth Sportsplex, which the hotel allows a daily free pass for. The hotel is currently undergoing some renovations and would be better if the rooms had a […] kitchenette facility, which I believe is part of the renovations to be done. I cannot fault this hotel it is excellent and the staff were most helpful and friendly Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to ferry"
It was nice. Nothing special. This hotel is not a 5 star hotel so it was normal. Clean, close to ferry and that is what I want.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"VERY poor service!!"
the worst service i have every experienced at a hotel. The woman on the desk would not allow myself and my pregnant wife to check in when we arrived because we booked online and she said it wouldn't go through her system for a LONG time. this was late in the evening and we had to call our online reservation vendor for them to call the hotel and make […] sure we could check in. When we returned they sent us to a storage room by mistake and then took at least 15-20 mins to change us to a normal room. Other guests in the lobby were even expressing their frustration for us! Rough neighbourhood, hotel was old and run down. Underground parking is very cramped. We have a mazda 2 and it would barely meet clearance. SUV's need to park outside.

Hotel rooms need some updating, very close to harbour frontGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better than expected."
Hotel was better than expected. Was clean but is an older hotel. Carpet is relatively new and the patio off the room was nice. Lady at front desk was rude but the rest of staff was fine. There is only cleaning on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Other days room is not cleaned..........strange. I would stay here again for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for location"
The hotel was near the ferry which took you to the center of Halifax......a fun way to get there. Hotel is changing ownership for the better and is no longer a Super 8. We enjoyed staying there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not an ideal stay."
This hotel has just changed hands from 'Super 8' to the 'Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel'. Maybe the new owners plan to do some upkeep. The hotel isn't bad in itself. It is a bit dated but the price per night is good and the staff is friendly. That said we did have some issues. First the toilet was running constantly. I ended up having to fix it. In itself […] not a big issue. Next we were woken up in the middle of the night by a constant tapping sound. It was water leaking down the wall from above us ... I assume due to the rain ... and dripping on the floor. The carpet and unfortunately some of our bags were soaked. The room was damp and mildew smelling after that. But wet carpet tends to smell anyway. To access the underground parking you have to get out of the car and walk around the corner, swipe your card, then run back to the car and drive in. Not really the safest or driest method to access parking. Lastly I was headed to the 4th floor however the elevator passed the 4th and got stuck just shy of the 7th floor. None of the buttons in the elevator did anything at this point and after realizing that the elevator was not going to start up again and no one was coming to get me out I had to pry open the elevator doors and climb out at the 7th floor. The elevator was pretty much there but at the time was about 2 feet lower than the actual floor level. These might be little things on their own but together it makes for a bit of a less than comfy weekend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It is an older hotel and it was clean and the staff was very friendly. The views off of the balcony were wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The parking is small and hard to park vehicle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Felt like I was given the room key and then forgotten. Parking lot was dreadful. Hotel staff was there to put their hours in and no at all concerned about the guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was really great and was always available when needed. Help our group call cabs at always remembered our names.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super 8 Dartmouth"
We stayed at the Super 8 Dartmouth in May 2013 (soon to be renamed the Oceanview Hotel). It's nothing special but good for the price paid. The building is old, but the room seems like it has had some "cosmetic" upgrades such as paint, curtains, bedding. The hotel has undergound parking which was nice. Also, it's a short 2 block walk to the Halifax ferry […] and a short drive to the bridge, so that was really convenient for both walking and driving to Halifax. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for an affordable hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We enjoyed our visit"
We stayed for 6 days and had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Staff was friendly and very helpful. So happy that we were able to get a smoking room. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room- it was very large and we had more than enough room for the four of us. Great price too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel was very nice, in quite a good location near the ferry terminal and buses. The staff wee extremely helpful and the contintal breakfast adequate.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location and good price"
Good location walls thin walls but nice view. Hotel has nice staff that are friendly and professional.Genuine Expedia guest review
As poor students who just wanted a weekend away, this hotel was fine. It does not go over or above and the woman who helped us at the front desk was quite rude, but the room themselves are comfy and pretty clean, it is a perfect distance from Halifax (Not too close or far), and provided a nice relaxing place to sleep after shopping all day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall, a good place to rest."
The continental breakfast was the only area lacking, not a lot to choose from that could be considered healthy, or "light". The staff were very friendly and the room was all we needed, somewhere to lie our weary heads down. The mattress was a bit too firm, and I even like firm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible... and not a Super 8"
This was a Ocean View Suits hotel, not a Super 8. I guess they had changed over earlier this month. At least that was what they told us at the front desk. They are still advertising as a Super 8 through this site. This hotel was a dump. The hallways were dirty and smelled. The rooms was clearly not well maintained. There was water damage on the ceiling […] that was not fixed but they tried to paint over it. The drywall was never fixed. The bathroom smelled terribly of pot at 3pm. It was bad. It was as if they were smoking right there in the bathroom with us. The bathroom had a nasty dropped ceiling that was peeling and dirty. The fact that the pot smell was so bad made me wonder if the rooms were even separated above the drop down ceiling. I have never walk out of a hotel before this. It is a shady place and neighborhood. Do yourself a favor and stay ant the Airport Hilton and take the bus downtown. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Suite, not a suite."
Room, "suite" was small. Hallway entrance for the sofa, no extra TV and no room for family. Family suite, yet extra charge for 4th person. Extra charge for parking, outdoors for an SUV. Continental breakfast area was not kept clean or re-supplied with food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to mall by car"
Very good value for priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
excellent hotel, clean, front desk staffs are the best i have ever seen as they are always ready to help.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good 2 star quality"
The hotel lives up to its 2 star rating. The rooms are basic but comfortable, the bed is a little worn, room comes with a fridge and microwave at no extra charge. The staff are great. Always willing to address your questions and help provide a solution to your problem. The underground parking is rather challenging since there is very little room for […] maneuvering. The best thing about the hotel was that it was very quiet at night which allowed for a nice peaceful sleep. The worst thing about the room was the heater which was manually operated and positioned next to the bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
as always the Super 8 in Dartmouth was greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place to stay"
Only complaint would be the underground parking, way too smallGenuine Expedia guest review
I was expecting a new motel and was surprised it was an older building renovated. We were on the 8th floor and the elevator only went to the 7th floor. Our room was a penthouse suite with king size bed, kitchenette, outside balcony and bathroom. A great complementary continental breakfast including free internet and newspaper. Overall a great off season […] price at about $75.00 and very pleasing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location. The room is fine, with mircrowave and other things. Parking is not free.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok, clean, worn, loud"
Plus side, underground parking decently priced Down side, very, VERY cramped parking... if you have a hard time backing up, not for you! + Close to Ferry - Sketchy neighborhood, so not great to walk at night even though the motel is just 2 blocks from ferry terminal. + Includes breakfast (cereal, muffin, bagel, yogurt, coffee, tea) - Not a lot of […] options... one kind of muffin, would be nice to have boiled eggs or some kind of protein. + Rooms are clean, housekeeping left us a not to have a good day (mattress is firm) - Rooms are dated, but, motel is starting to do renovations, so they are aware... Also, walls very thin, so if you have early risers next to you, your up for the day. Could hear their radio, the shower, the toilet flush, everything. Night staff was great, day staff was nice once getting to talk to them. Room Tip: 2nd floor and 6th (I think) are pet friendly, 7th is smoking floor. All have balconies.
