We reserved two adjoining rooms, as it was a birthday occasion. Rooms were comfortable, with
the exception of a chair in our room, which unfortunately had a panel in the back with a nail
protruding, and unfortunately, my son, got a large scratch on his back when he sat on the chair.
We called the desk, the supervisor was very helpful, brought up band aids and Polysporin for the
scratch. He stated that he would file a report to Head Office. He removed the chair from our
room for repair.
Other than that incident, the Pepper Mill Restaurant was great for dinner. Our grandson enjoyed
the pool with the slide. Breakfast was great, and staff were very helpful.
I would imagine we will hear from Head Office in due time.
I found the hotel comfortable and convenient with easy access for everything we needed. This was our first visit to Nova Scotia, and when we told people where we were staying most were appalled, but I can't find anything to complain about at all.
We liked that the Ferry from Dartmouth to Halifax was a short walk away. Hotel had a good view of the ocean, a small balcony, and decent service. The room itself was clean and comfortable, but the lights in the bathroom, and disjointed bathroom/sink area was a bit small and uncomfortable for use. I was working and my husband could sleep in, but I had to have room lights on to get ready, as the vanity was outside the tub/toilet room.
All we want is a clean place at a good price. Some type of breakfast is also a good point.
Hotels around Halifax are expensive so we were attracted to the Costal Inn by its price. It is very close to public transport which we used to get from Dartmouth to Halifax. It is not a new place and it is not in a fancy area but is is clean and comfortable with good access to highways out of town.
Staff were pleasant and helpful.
The breakfast was pretty standard hotel chain continental breakfast.
we would stay there again.
Dartmouth, founded in 1750 and located on Canada's east coast, is home to the oldest continuously operating saltwater ferry service in North America. Boasting 23 lakes within its boundaries, Dartmouth has earned the nickname, City of Lakes. The Angus L. Macdonald Bridge, a suspension bridge spanning Halifax Harbour, connects Dartmouth to Halifax, less than 4 kilometers away.
