"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
Great deal. Basic and Clean room. Very good service. The building itself is a bit dated. Right next to ferry terminal for easy access to downtown Halifax. Basic breakfast has everything that you need and is included. Would definitely stay there again.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! I look forward to returning to this […] hotel again in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

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!!

Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. I apologize it was not to your expectations. Our service here is normally quite good, with friendly staff waiting to great you. If you are in need of a hotel in the Dartmouth area again, I do hope you will stay with us. Best Regards, Chantale - Guest Service Manager, Super 8 Dartmouth
I would stay there again...rooms nice & big....clean...good beds....pleasant front desk....nice little breakfast...sometimes parking was a pain...tight squeeze to get into some spots...close to bridge to cross over into HalifaxGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Excellent small hotel, rooms are well equipped, great location near the Ferry, & restaurants., great view of Halifax harbor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok place, needs a facelift, the staff was helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
"The basic Motel with everything"
I arrived at the Super Motel in Dartmouth at 10:30pm to catch an early flight back to Calgary the next day. Between the drive from the South Shore and attending to other business, I had not had time to go to the bank to pick up any cash (the staff on the Halifax/ Dartmouth toll Bridge very kindly gave me a "feebie" as I only had a Credit Card) or access […] to a computer to complete my on-line check in to save me time in the morning. Before 11pm, I was assisted by the Front Desk staff to check in for my flight and print off my boarding pass, get cash from the ATM Machine in the Motel and secure a "front of motel" parking spot so I could make a quick getaway in the morning. They also made sure I was up at 5am to make my flight (both an automatic and personal alarm call) and were very apologetic that breakfast would be served too late for my departure (free breakfast starts at 06:30am). The King Size bed was comfortable and cozy and WiFi access was not only free but very easy to access. The best part was the astonishingly good price. It may not have been the "flashiest or most fashionable" motel in Nova Scotia, but I cannot fault them in any way on customer service or commitment to making your stay as stress free and comfortable as possible. Would most certainly visit again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We were not advised of additional cost for cot or that funds are held on your credit card. Also it is nice that they allow pets however the dogs never stopped barking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We will better and allocate guests away from pet friendly rooms, and ensure that all our technical processes are in working order. Holding funds on a credit card or cash advance is a standard hotel industry practice to ensure incidentials are covered.
"Not recommended at all!"
Staff was friendly. Breakfast was basic minimum however, quality of food was very poor. No water in the washroom, we were assured that a refrigerator would be provided, however, it was not setup when we arrived, and when the request was made, staff informed us that there were none available. Beds were comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel The staff and management are so sorry to hear that your stay was not satisfactory. We have received a great number of wonderful comments on the hotel this summer and we are sorry we failed you during your stay. We will strive to be better.
I found the beds very uncomfortable, and had to pay for parking. That should be included with staying thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Thank you for taking the time to comment. We do have complimentary outdoor parking and a minimal fee for indoor parking. The only hotel in Dartmouth that offers underground parking, great for raining days or winter days....
"good value for money spent"
I had no problems with hotel or staff. the only complaint i would have is with other guests parking. parking area is small and some guests were not considerate when parking, in a slot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel Thank you for staying at the Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel. We do have underground parking, great for those days of winter and rain. It is a bit tight. Have a great summer.
"Close enough without paying the price"
The location was everything for this hotel. I found that many of the hotels in downtown Halifax were pricey while this was in Dartmouth it is only a few minutes walk from the ferry. The surrounding neighbourhood was not the greatest but the price was worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel The Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel is the closest Hotel to the Ferry to Halifax. So why stay anywhere else... Our hotel is located in downtown Dartmouth, an area that is experiencing some wonderful changes to local business development and high end residential buildings. So the city centre is going through some great changes.
