"To old. Should be cheaper. Improper rating."
Dirty parking area. No modern restaurant. No view as pictured in photos.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your stay. Although we do not have a restaurant on property, there are many fantastic options within a very short walking distance to chose from. The view from your room does depend on its location, we do indeed have many that have a lovely harbourview, and others that look out to the city of Dartmouth. I am sorry we did not live up to your expectations, perhaps on a future visit we could arrange to have you booked into a harbourview room. Best Regards, Chantale Nadeau - Guest Services Manager, Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel
over one night of stay, we experienced used cups in the room and leaking ceiling in the middle of the night over our bed until morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel A rare 1 star rating. I am the manager, and this has been printed off and shared with staff. We do not tolerate this, and the staff do take create pride in the hotel and their job. Thanks for letting us know.
"Good hotel near everything"
Check in was not great welcome and I was told to use my sense of direction. Staff change made huge difference and rest of stay was great. Would go again but would request ocean view on sixth floor for non smoking.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Thanks for comments and I'm glad you would return. The Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel does have a great view of Halifax, along with some other great amenities.
"Old, but charming. Right downtown Dartmouth!"
89.00CAN. I loved that there was a stove top, fridge and microwave. LOVED the window overlooking the street. Had a balcony. Was told it was a king size bed but was actually a queen. Room was very clean, but was worn around the edges. Staff was very helpful. Underground parking is only for vehicles 5' 11" so a no go for my minivan with a roof rack. But […] there was outdoor parking around back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"hotel OK staff meh!"
Front desk clerk needed an etiquette lesson. First pulled up, she was outside smoking, roughly asked if I was checking in, then asked me if I wanted to change the name on my res. as she thought my name was Feminine, then looked at just me and wanted to know why I booked a suite! ignorant is a compliment to this woman! Lovely suite, a bit dated, but […] great kitchen area, lovely cupboards, but not a thing in them! not a glass, a dish, cutlery, nada! first time I closed the bathroom door the smoke detector fell off the wall. reasonable value for dollar, but staff was lacking!

Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our property based on your recent stay. First allow me to apologize on behalf of the entire team for the way you were greeted. I am very disappointed to hear that your experience fell so far below our guest service standards. We pride ourselves in providing 5 star service, and clearly this was well below that. I am please to hear you liked our recently renovated kitchenettes.

As a team we have reviewed your feedback in order to ensure every guest experience meets our standards. Thank you again for taking the time to advise us. Janet Toner, General Manager, Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel
"Nice people, average room."
I was warmly received. People were helpful and courteous. The room was average. I had difficulty getting the temperature to be consistent: too hot then later quite cool, then too warm again. Controls on unit less than helpful. I'd come back for the people. Perhaps not for the breakfast. The hotel should probably buy a couple more toasters. (Line up […] s).

"Reasonable price close to halifax ferry."
Hotel definitely needs some work, but we saved about $1000 by staying here instead of halifax and it is only a 10 min $2.50 ferry ride away. Staff was excellent, very helpfull with everything. Really not much to do in this area of Dartmouth so plan on driving or taking a ferry to do anything.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear Todd, Thank you for staying with us and for providing your feedback. Saving $1000 on your stay is certainly news worth sharing!

Booked online , but despite the name an location, no ocean view. Had to park half a block away and was charged for it! Rooms were dirty, pait peeling on the ceiling. Staff was less than helpful. We slept there and that was it. Gross! Do yourself a favour and spend the extra 10-20 a night and stay somewhere else.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear Christy; Thank you for staying with us and providing your feedback.

"Very convenient to Halifax ferry and buses"
Located just up the street from the Alderney ferry terminal to take you to Halifax. Older building but was is good repair and the staff were friendly and helpful. There wasnt really much to see/do near the hotel, but the buses were right there by the ferry and it was easy to get around. My room was advertised as having a microwave and fridge, which […] it did, but also had a 2 burner cook top, kitchen sink, though the "kitchenette" was not equiped with any cooking utensils . But if it had been advertisedas such , i would have come prepared. It did seem that this was a newer addition, so advertising may not have been updated. Overall a good stay for the price paid.

Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear Brenda; Thank you for staying with us and providing your feedback. Many guests find our close proximity to the Halifax ferry very convenient.

"Close to the harbour"
Staff was a bit stand-offish and not as helpful as I would have expected. Hotel was ok for the money but quite worn. The underground parking is meant for Smart cars only. The mid size rental I had barely fit and you have to do a 3 point turn from where the entry key card is swiped to the access door.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your feedback. Many guests appreciate that we are one block from the Halifax harbour; I’m pleased you found the same. I apologize your experience with our staff was not to our standards of friendly and helpful.

"Great location and value for your dollar."
Like the location - close to the bridge to Halifax. We had a balcony and a great view of Halifax across the water. Easy to find. Small mall close by had a great restaurant, small grocery, etc. Very handy. Small town feel to the area made it very pleasant to visit. The room had all the amenities. We would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Please do visit again soon. Janet Toner, General Manager, Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel
"Nice hotel, bad neighbourhood"
This hotel was decent. If you're looking for a budget hotel, it's the place to be. I enjoyed the lounge on the 2nd floor, which happened to be right outside my room (rm 212) so I could sit there while the kids went to sleep. The only downside to this place is location, as it's in the less-safe area of Dartmouth. We weren't out late at night and never […] felt unsafe. I'm just getting this from the news. We stayed with our three kids and had no problem using a cot and extra pillow/blanket for our third child. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear lukrisi Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your feedback. I’m happy to hear you enjoyed our 2nd floor Atrium/lounge. It is certainly a popular place for guests to relax and enjoy some quiet time. I’m sorry that the news reports you heard left you feeling less safe in Dartmouth. I can assure you guest safety is always a priority for us and I am pleased that you felt safe here in the hotel. I hope you will consider visiting us again soon. Janet Toner, General Manager, Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel.
"Good location, and that's it"
Poor customer service, rooms that are in need of both a cleaning and some repairs, the single worst continental breakfast I've ever seen. This hotel has opened my eyes to the fact that if they're offering a big discount, there's probably a reason they can't fill their rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear Evan, Thank you for staying with us and for providing your feedback. I apologize that your experience was below our standard. We will use the feedback you provided and review it as a team. We have begun our process of re-branding and I do hope you will consider staying with us again at some point in the future. Janet Toner, General Manager, Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel.
"Great value in Halifax/Dartmouth"
The building and neighborhood don't have business hotel like facade. The hotel does not have a restaurant. On important client business, you may not want to stay here. Otherwise a good place for family and individual. Great value for money. Good housekeeping and cleaning. Ferry nearby made my commute to Halifax downtown very pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Thank you, we do have a great deal to experience and many local restaurants. Ferry to Halifax....we do at times have a leisure feel, business at times as well.
"Downtown ocean view"
Very nice hotel and close to ferry. Parking space is a little narrow thoughGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel The Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel is indeed close to Halifax Ferry. An affordable choice to Halifax. We do have indoor parking, so it is a little tight for larger vehicles and we do have outdoor parking as well. Thanks for the feedback.
"Hotel in a good position near Halifax"
Hotel not extraordinary but good, close to the ferry and the bridge for Halifax with a private parking. Near also good restaurants. Needs some maintenance but not substantial.Genuine Expedia guest review

The hotel was located in a great spot, just a quick walk to the ferry into Halifax. Rooms are quite dated but they were pretty clean.

"Two Thumbs Down"
I didn't enjoy this hotel as when we arrived our rom wasn't ready and so I inquired if it was ocean view and they said it wasn't so they gave me an ocean view that had a large building in front of it and there was no screen on the patio door. To change, it cost me an extra twenty dollars. The next day I told them that was dissatisfied with that room […] and wanted the room that I was initially supposed to get and it ended up being was nicer than the first one and although it was not an ocean view you could see it a bit of the harbour,, which was enough for me. At least this one had a screen on the patio door and I could the patio door open to let some fresh air in. As this was Super 8 Hotel before, I think they should reduce their prices to reflect the shape that its in etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best out of 3"
Everything was acceptable, breakfast was okay, the hotel was clean, parking was included, my dog was allowed for no extra fee and if you got the harbor view it was great! Tried 2 other MOTELS we thought would be cheaper and ended coming back to the Ocean View it was a great deal! Also you can take the ferry across to Halifax and not worry about drinking […] and driving which is a bonus. But no smoking on the balcony???? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, friendly staff"
I've stayed at this location several times under different names. The staff is always friendly and the location is great - easy access to everything and close to the ferry. The only complaint would be that the underground parking is very tight. If you visit on a weekend the post office across the street is closed so you can use their parking lot or […] park on the street (during the summer) for free all night - the staff may not tell you that. The rooms are clean and simple, and have balconies which are a nice feature. It's a hotel that I've been going to regularly and will continue. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

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.

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
