"Eastern Canadian Drive"
Was not informed ahead that continental breakfast discontinued as of 9/15/14 ( the morning of our stay _ "downer" ). Other than the breakfast, the stay was pleasant enough. Convenient to the "Celtic Corner" Irish Pub (enjoyed that). Convenient for crossing over to Halifax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Parking area not the beat, breakfast no good. Room clean and nice. Staff friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very convenient place to stay !"
i always am so relieved when a hotels(dot)com reservation goes through without any troubles, since their customer service is so slow in resolving issues. this place is located steps away from the ferry terminal, which is a good cheap way to explore Halifax. be sure to get the 10-pack for even more savings. also, be sure to check kayak(dot)com first […] for better hotel rates since this website is so unbelievably difficult in getting them to honor their total nonsense low-price guarantee.

"Great hotel staff"
Milklos was a great help to us. Great stay. Even though the room was paid for well in advance, the hotel put a hold on my debit card and six days later, it is still there. Emailed them, and have yet to hear back from them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you're on the cheap and don't need internet..."
The staff were great, the ferry and bus routes are short walks away, the room was okay, and the continental breakfast adequate. That's the good news. Parking was difficult and not free, there's no view of the ocean/harbor from anywhere but the rear top of the building, the immediate location was neither picturesque nor vibrant, and their internet service […] was so poor during "peak" hours (meaning "when you're most likely be there") that it was slower and less reliable than dial-up (not an exaggeration), often completely incapacitated. If you need a place to sleep that's close to transportation to more intriguing areas, and have your own wifi setup, you'll be fine; but the hotel and downtown Dartmouth in general are not destinations in and of themselves.

"No Internet on the 5th floor and slow on the 4th"
Older Hotel, friendly staff, but the wireless internet is terrible, didn't work at all on the 5th floor, they moved us to the fourth floor with the head of the bed next to the back of the elevator, it banged all night, never going back!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"1 block from the Halifax Ferry-Perfect!!"
Entire staff was better than you would find at exclusive hotels. Building is well cared for, the rooms were spotless and well equipped. Better rates than Halifax and only an enjoyable 8 minute ferry ride to and from Halifax to Dartmouth. Private balconies and free breakfast included. The Best value for the money!

Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Dear Fjola, Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your feedback. I am pleased that you found our staff helpful. A clean room and good bed is so important when you’re traveling. I hope you will stay with us again soon. It was our pleasure to take good care of you. Janet Toner, General Manager, Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel.
We rested here instead of only slightly more expensive Halifax hotel, don't you make that mistake too. The name of the hotel implies an ocean view but at check in we were told that was a misnomer and yup, the room we were given had a balcony that looked onto the loading dock of an across the street business where a floodlight shown all night and noisy […] skateboarders used the ramp for a while. The beds were uncomfortable, cheap inner spring mattresses, the AC/Heat unit was too noisy to leave on and there were no upgrades in toiletries or coffee/breakfast offered; no fruit or eggs/breakfast meats. The city bus passes and stops in front of the hotel so every 30 minutes I could hear its brakes squeak and its engine rev to start up until it stopped running around maybe 11:00pm? The location is a neighborhood with a park close at hand where there is a short climbing trail and if you run or walk, there is a path along the Dartmouth harbor edge that is nice. Due to being more tired when leaving than arriving, we decided to move on to Sydney and did not explore Halifax. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rather dimly lighted hotel and rooms, gloomy feel."
Inconvenient for dropping luggage at lobby, especially in the rain. Small entryway. Inconvenient parking. As title says, lobby and room was dimly lit and gloomy feeling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better Last Time I Was There Oct 2012"
I got there earlier than expected on check-in date. I called to see if I could get a room earlier since I was exhausted from driving all the way from Toronto. The desk person was very rude on the phone & didn't even try to see if she could accommodate me. I wanted a smoking room and was told there is no smoking in the hotel. I found out next day that […] the 7th floor is all smoking!!! I also called the front desk at 9:55 am, the next morning to inquire about when breakfast was finished being served and was told its over already. Went downstairs and people were still taking food to eat. Overall, hotel is fine for the price but service & friendliness of the employees sucked big time. Even was told by the front desk person that she wishes breakfast was over already cuz she had to man the breakfast and the front desk all by herself. Too difficult for her to manage.

"good in a pinch"
It was OK. Stayed 3 nights. My son was sick in the hospital. The third night we arrived at the hotel and the attendent was standing outside the front of the hotel about to light up a cigarette. She questioned if we were checking in. We answered 'yes' She rolled her eyes, with a big sigh she turned around and entered the hotel. She was never very welcoming. […] Bad experience!!

"A great home base to see Halifax"
The Super 8 in Dartmouth was a fine hotel. Nothing too special to offer but clean rooms, wifi, and everything you'd need for a basic hotel stay. The location was perfect to see the few things in Dartmouth itself and within a short drive to the Macdonald Bridge to Halifax as well as walking distance to the ferry. The staff were nice and helpful as w […] ell. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location to visit halifax"
Liked the breakfast - bagels, toast, waffles, cereal, juice and coffee. Hotel had been renovated (new furniture) but room showed signs of leaks in the ceiling. Apparently that part had not been renovated. Hotel is very close to the ferry terminal, so going to Halifax via a nice ferry ride is super easy, and on weekdays ferry goes every 15 minutes at […] least until 10 pm. Parking in the hotel garage is very tight and it seems we got the last spot on the day we arrived. Not sure what happens if they do not have parking available - the surrounding streets have meters, but maybe one can park at ferry terminal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant stay at the Super 8!"
We recommend this hotel, especially to people with pets. We brought our dog with us on our vacation, and she was very welcomed there. They had a basket of dog biscuits in the lobby for their doggy guest. The room was large and had a balcony. It was very clean. The hotel offered a nice complimentary continental breakfast. We were pleased with our visit […] at this hotel and we would stay there again in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"quiet and convenient location"
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Tks for the very good ocean view room, which was one of our favorite room during the trip. It is an excellent hotel with a very good price and at a very convenient location... only few minutes drive to Halifax. The staffs are very helpful and nice. The only complaint for us was the parking lots (both floors)... very […] small parking spaces even for a compact 4-doors car. Regarding the breakfast, we'd not expect too much for a 3-star hotel... however, the staffs should keep an eye on those empty bread/cake/fruits baskets... 3/5 mornings of our stays were almost empty (only one or two refills but with very less quantity, the time was about 9am, many guests were just started their breakfasts). I saw some of the guests had no choices and seek their breakfast out of the hotel. Other than that, we were very happy about staying at the hotel and we will definitely to consider stay there again in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to Halifax by bridge or transit"
Our experience was fine, for a one night stopover, but I wouldn't find it so for a vacation experience. We had no oceanview, just a view of a driveway and house next door. We arrived late and didn't go for dinner as there are no restaurants nearby. Hotel's continental breakfast was fine but I note that they are ending this feature soon, and I would […] expect a cheaper room rate once breakfast is eliminated. Second floor has an odd sitting room next to what I think used to be a large hot tub, now covered with wood. Seems to be a popular hotel for visiting youth teams, but they were well behaved and quiet when we were there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

close to Halifax and all shoping. Indoor parking was nice and convient. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Dartmouth/Halifax Ferry & Legion"
Hotel is good value at sale prices. It is starting to show its age with scratched paint on door trims. Only South facing rooms, available at a premium, have a view of the harbour.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view of Halifax Harbour, Reasonable price"
Average Hotel with an excellent view close to the Dartmouth-Halifax ferry. Comfortable beds. The rooms could do with refurbishing. Enjoyed the continental breakfast. I would go backGenuine Expedia guest review

"Blow this up"
First room was still dirty from last visitors. Staff was nice enough but handcuffed by the dive they work in. Old unlicensed vehicles in out door parking look. Never againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good on a budget"
I was only here one night and it's certainly enough for a quick stay on a budget. The view and location were great as well as hotel staff. I will say, the underground parking was a nightmare. It's so small and you can barely get an average size car in a spot. Your alternative is parking down the street in a random lot. Not impressed with that part. […] Everything else was fine! Clean room and bathroom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"City hotel close to downtown halifax"
For the price, this is about the best hotel within walking distance of the ferry to Halifax. The rooms are clean with all the amenities you need. Try and get a city-view room for the evening views. You can park on the street after the meter times (5pm -8am) and save yourself afew bucks. Breakfast included is fine to start your day and the coffee is […] quite good.

"A bit dated, but clean and comfortable."
The building is older and downtown Dartmouth doesn't have much going on anymore but the staff were friendly and helpful. The common areas and rooms were very clean. It has nice common areas to relax if you'd like a change of scenery.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"OCEAN VIEW AND WALKING DISTANCE TO THE FERRY."
HOTEL STAFF WERE VERY POLITE, GENUINE AND EAGER TO PLEASE US.... EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE.Genuine Expedia guest review
Reasonably priced, well appointed with microwave, fridge and decent breakfast included with the room, friendly staff. Being able to enjoy a coffee on the deck was a nice bonus. My only significant complaint is that while it was unseasonably warm and muggy for Labour Day weekend, the air conditioner was way too noisy to sleep with it on, and the downtown […] location dictates against leaving a window open.

"Great location, Dog friendly (no added charge)."
I've stayed at this hotels numerous times now because my homeopathic vet is just around the corner and have been happy with my choice every time. If you're looking for a luxurious hotel, this isn't it, but I always get good value for my money here. The location of the hotel is a plus. It's in the downtown core, and is only a few minutes walk to the […] ferry which will take you to Downtown Halifax for a few bucks. One thing to be aware, though, you can't bring any pets on the ferry. The rooms are a little dated, but they have made some improvements over the last year. All rooms have a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. They also have a free continental breakfast. Nothing fancy, but I always walk away with a full belly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"pretty good place to stay. good value."
Only problem we had was the soft drink machine. The desk clerk helped us and all was well. It was quiet. Irish pub with good food a block away. My wife found the beds just a little hard - but clean and comfy. Clean and great staff.Not new but well maintained and clean. Everything in good shape.Location was ok. Our GPS took us right there no problem. […] Rates were much cheaper than Best Western and I thought it was just as good.Continental breakfast had no eggs or sausage. Waffles and cereal and toast and good coffee.Plus some other stuff. All we wanted was a landing spot for the night at a good rate and it was quite good. WiFi OK.

"Nice place to stay at downtown Dartmouth"
The hotel is at great location. Only 5 min walk to the harbour for awesome view (especially at night). The staff are very helpful. Room is spacious with a microwave and a balcony. Bathtub has low edge, quite friendly for seniors. The only complaint we have is the parking. They do offer free underground parking, but the entrance is connected to a very […] narrow road, and you have to get out of the car to swipe the card. Also parking spots are so packed (we have to all get out from one side of the car). It takes quite a bit of time and skill to get in/out the parking spot and garage door.
