"Great Location- Great Family Hotel"
Everything was fine; I like the smell of the spa throughout the lobby and the breakfast is excellent. My only complaint was that the hot tub was cold in the morning and the pool seemed colder. When checkout time is noon the kiddies want to enjoy the amenities again in the morning and we could not bring ourselves to get in a cold hot tub. A little d […] isappointing.

"dreadful abbreviated stay!"
The hotel was soooo loud till very late. Running, yelling, talking in the halls, above us and on our floor. Staff told me they were monitoring the floors but their was no improvement. At 11:30 we took our 5 and 2 year old that still hadn't fallen into a good sleep, home. The drive home was an hour away. If you want a good night sleep don't stay her […] e!

The hotel was fairly clean, except for the pool area, it could have been cleaner. Check in service was good, but check out was rather painfull, the clerk acted like he was sleeping behind the desk!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"reasonable priced good quality hotel"
We were looking for a hotel offering free breakfast and a pool for our four-night stay. We were pleased with our choice.Genuine Expedia guest review

The hotel was great the only down side was the pool water was cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to necessary business sight"
would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Swimming pool, waterslide and hot tub areas built for kids not adults; strong chlorine smell throughout building. We only used these areas once at the beginning and did not go back. Have used other hotel waterslides that are open (not enclosed tunnel) and used by both adults and kids. The pool area also was not kept clean and large amounts of water […] pooled on deck. Pool not deep enough to even do aquatic exercises. Very disappointing. Breakfast items did not change at any time during our 6 days; same everything whereas other hotels offering free breakfast change up the items every other day i.e. scrambled or hard boiled eggs; different yougart flavours; muffins, waffels, etc. May be okay for short visits but not the quality or variety used to. Smallest refridgerator ever experienced in numerous hotels both in Ontario and Nova Scotia. Basically unusable. First time to use Quality Inns and will not be going back.

We really enjoyed the breakfast. The computer room was extremely hot to work in there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good, however the room we were initially given was not the room we were given when I had phoned to confirm the room we wanted. It was finally changed to what we had ordered, although at first the staff at the front desk said they could not do that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient for moving my daughter into Dalhousie"
Great value for money, easy access to/from airport aned city centre. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. I liked that there were picknick tables and muskoka chairs around the property so you could go outside and read a book.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel is a little far from downtown, by site it appears to be closer but its a 15-20 minute drive. Overall hotel is very nice, waterslide was great for kids. No complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
For a newer hotel, there are several issues. Every time you walk into the lobby strong smell of chlorine from swimming pool. Carpet in hallways in bad shape. Large stain on carpet in room. Had to either hold handle down for several seconds when flushing toilet or flush it several times for it to completely flush. "Hot continental breakfast" disappointing. […] Not much choice, only fruit offered was apples, not really a breakfast food. Cereal dispenser broken, had to go looking for cup to scoop cereal out. Items not topped up in a timely manner.

"well above average"
We stayed here recently during a work trip. The hotel is conveniently located with good access to the freeways and about a 15 minute drive from the harbour. It was ideal for my purposes. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and there was only very moderate road noise from outside.Check in staff were very helpful. All in all the hotel was well above […] average.

I'll be back. What a great place to stay!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was fine. The only negative things were the absence of a fan in the bathroom leaving everything damp after a shower and the fact that the carpet was wet. I assume it had just been cleaned but it was definitely too wet to walk on without shoes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We found the hotel to be very comfortable, clean and the kids really enjoyed the pool; although the hot tub was way too hot i only got 1 foot in and it was extremely hot. The breakfast was really good as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was disapointed when I checked in. I specifically asked Expedia if a pull out couch or a cot would be available for my son to sleep on. Expedia put me on hold and then advised me they checked with the hotel and it would be no problem...Then when I went to check in I was told at the front desk they do not provide that service........grrrrrrr.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better places to stay in Halifax!"
We booked the hotel through Expedia and our room backed on the elevators which were very noisy. The hotel didn't appear to be full but it seemed as though we were given that room because we booked and paid a discounted rate. The woman that checked us in was not very friendly and neither of our keys worked. Had to have them reset and she didn't seem […] to care. The pool is nice but is cold and had a ton of chlorine, much more than most pools I've been in. The room itself was okay but the fan was very low even on a low speed. Wouldn't stay there again, I think there are nicer places in Halifax to stay for the same price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great getaway spot, close to highways and central"
Great hotel for a getaway. Friendly staff at the desk and everything was in order. Hot and cold breakfast buffet makes it popular with the family. Pool and spa are a great way to relax. Remember the pool with its water slide is likely to be full of kids on the weekends. Through the week it is a lovely oasis. I definitely recommend this hotel for a […] getaway or as a base for a visit to the Halifax area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a great stay at a great hotel. I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and all my stays have been great. The service is great, the breakfast is great and the rooms are great. Will be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will definately go back!"
I was pleasantly welcomed and had a quick and easy check in as it was late at night. The room was very clean, modern, and spacious. The Continental breakfast was great and there was plenty of seating in a bright and comfortable breakfast area. The children loved the pool and slide which was convenient and clean. The hotel was close to nearby highway […] and shopping so very convenient. The hotel rate was also great. We will definately go back!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A Great Hotel Quite Neighbourhood"
Arrived at 6:00PM our reservation and room were all ready; staff on duty excellent to deal with. The hotel is new so it is in great condition. It has a nice pool area with slide for those travelling with children. In room refrigerator and microwave provided. Having driven from Newfoundland to Toronto return via New York I have to say the complimentary […] breakfast was second only to the Quality Inn at Bangor which has a super breakfast. Thank you to all the staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Nous gardons une impression excellente de l'hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
les chambres à proximité de l'ascenseur sont à déconseiller, car celle-ci fait beaucoup de bruit et ce durant toute la nuit. Nous avons dû nous faire changer de chambre à cause de ce bruit et ils nous ont relocalisé seulement à deux chambre plus loin à l'étage plus bas, et nous entendions encore le bruit de l'ascenseur. Donc le sommeil n'a pas été une […] chose facile. Et aussi il n'y a aucun restaurant à proximité de cette hotel.

Beau séjour, mais je n'ai pas eu la chambre que Hotel.com avait démontrée sur le site. J'avais réservé pour une suite lit queen dans une chambre avec un salon (divan lit) à côté, mais malheureusement, il n'y avait pas de porte à la chambre donc j'aurais du avoir un lit King tel que décrit sur le site. De plus, la chambre avait baissée de 25$ la veille […] mais il était impossible pour moi de modifier ma réservation pour avoir ce taux. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Two Day trip to Halifax"
07/28/14 regerton Bath, Canada
One if the best choice hotels we have stayed at. A great drive up suite. Staff were very welcoming and helpfull in directing us to to great local restaurants. Morning front desk staff not to good,asked if they knew if the Bluenose II was available to see in Lunenburg Did not know what I was talking about. Left him with a dime which shows what the Bluenose is.
"Big breakfast and comfy beds"
07/24/14 Ellie M Grapevine, TX
The kids loved this hotel. We are interested in basic hotel value -- a clean, safe, comfortable stay with a better than average breakfast. This one beat that mark by quite a bit. It is close to Halifax downtown, yet out a bit with easy access to HWY 103 and the coast. The kids loved the water slide in the pool area. Cleanliness and safety: clean and bright. Pool area was strongly doused in chlorine; deck was sloppily wet. Room/hotel security was fine. Room: blow dryer; microwave, fridge; Room was a bit larger than usual for 2 queens. Windows opened for good ventilation, and a/c unit was better than average. Bath: sink, toilet, and shower in one room -- also had a small, bar sink outside the bathroom. Beds: lots of padding, blankets were sufficient and clean Breakfast: a large, varied selection served with style. Beyond the usual toast and cereal there were: eggs, bacon, make-your-own-waffles, pre-packaged muffins, nice blueberry scones, and several types of jam. Fresh fruit was offered. Coffee was good -- flavorful, but weak for my taste. Staff: At front desk check-in -- adequate, but not very good at customer service (inattentive, acted bored by our questions, no smiles, no welcoming demeanor) Wifi: free; uses password; no problems
"Really good for a 2.5 star hotel "
07/23/14 GhettoTraveller Toronto, Canada
This place has it all. For the price you cannot beat the price. I have seen a low rating hotel that clean, has tonnes of amenities (arcade, gym, business services, hot tub, pool with a mini slide for kids) and get this, breakfast is included your stay.. What???????? How can you possibly beat that!!
"The place to stay "

We stayed there for two nights. We had our two small children and small chihuahua. Breakfast included. Yummy waffles and huge assortment of breakfast items. Really quite. Pool is really fun with the water slide. We will be going back soon!!
"OK, but not great"
07/11/14 flame01 dublin
Having stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 4th July 2014, we left with a disappointed tinge to our vacation, perhaps I expect too much or I am being picky about issues I found, but here goes anyway ....... The hotel is approx a 10 minute drive into Halifax on the adjacent highway On booking online we asked for a "quiet room", on arrivale we were allocated a room beside an elevator...DUH!!!! No problem getting the room changed but this meant a downgrade, which we took as noise is always an issue for us Asking the "Hotel Manger" ( that's what Michel's badge said) for information about the local area was like squeezing bllod from a stone, this man really had not a clue. To add insult to injury, he was unable to enter my quality card number on my reservation The following morning I spoke with a female front desk attendent, and she was excellent. New her city and new her systems On entering out room, we saw that the floor in the bathroom had a nasty jagged crack right across the floor, as we were very tired I called down to reception and asked them to get someone to look at it the next day, even to put tape or something over it in case we cut our feet on the jagged edges. Believe it or not, but no one came to fix the floor nor did we receive any information from the hotel about it. Our room was at the end of the corridor on floor 3 (there are 4 floors), we were beside an emergency exit. For the first couple of nights some kids ( ages about 12-15) were using the emergency exit as a playground each night till about 1130. Breakfast was just OK. The only "Hot" item was bacon with hard boiled eggs. Lots of English muffins, bagels and regular bread. But when items ran out, only then did staff refill, this meant most mornings guests standing around jostling waiting for food to be replenished, with only one toaster and a full room each morning, this was a huge issue. Cutlery supplied was all plastic, which I never have an issue with, however the knives supplied were so cheap that when trying to spread cold butter, the knife would bend. The hotel has a swimming pool, which we did not use, but the smell of chlorine wafting through reception was not nice Can anyone explain to me why room service knocks people up from their slumber of 0820 in the morning please.. this happened to us on one morning .... surely they have rooms to attend to that people have already checked out of. When I asked why she called so early her reply was " I can call back later" & not a word of apology On a more postive note... the beds were extremly comfortable, the WiFi was top notch, The AC was efficient and not noisy at all. The good staff we met were excellent, but the bad were atrocious As I said at the outset, perhaps I am being picky but I will leave that to you the customer
"Spacious, clean room, great staff,"
06/30/14 millie2007 Moncton, Canada
Came to town for wedding with my elderly relative. Room was very clean and spacious, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We checked in early in order to have a rest time before the event and the front desk staff made sure we got our accessible room early. Again, wonderful service. The breakfast had good variety choices. Will stay again. Good value for the quality.
"Very Neat and Good Hotel"
06/11/14 SriLanka2010 South Pasadena, California
We were here during early June 2014 on our way from Prince Edward Island for one night in a kind bed room. Location is ideal, easy to find not very far from downtown; but need some kind of transport to get around; very clean and well kept. Lobby is well appointed, exceptionally friendly staff; specially Michel, average breakfast. Room is well appointed, good bed, linen, bath everything excellent. We liked the place and would return if happen be around.
"Great Place to Stay with Kids"
06/06/14 HappyOakdale_NY Ormond Beach
This hotel has a large pool with a water slide that children love. The only bad thing about it was you can smell the chlorine in the lobby. Our king size room was large and comfortable. There were many choices for breakfast, and the staff was lovely. Hint: Be sure to get to breakfast on time. They clean up immediately.
06/02/14 Beth K Fredericton, Canada
Great stay - handy to sports fields which was the reason for our stay. Easy access to & from highway. We had a King suite which was very spacious however the pull out had a couple of broken springs which made the bed a bit uncomfortable. Clean rooms - modern bathroom. Very helpful & friendly staff.
"Great stay at this hotel while visiting My Sons Family"
05/28/14 85Douglas85 Deerfield Beach, Florida
This hotel has a complimentary breakfast a swimming pool with a slide and close to all amenities. Clean rooms good staff front desk and room staff, would recommend this hotel to anyone. This hotel is very close to Bayer's Lake shopping for anything that you may need all stores are available. Movie theatres are also close by to take the kids to a movie, along with great eateries in the Bayer's Lake area. Close to the highways for easy access to Halifax city centre along with close to the exit for Peggy's Cove along with other attractions.
