I always enjoy my stay at the Best Western chocolate Lake. The staff are amazing the rooms are clean and fresh and the view of the lake is spectacular. I've been staying at the chocolate Lake location for many years now when I'm in the area and enjoy it each and every time. They are pet friendly have a wonderful outside eating area overlooking the lake and everybody is friendly and courteous.

This is the second time we stayed at this hotel in the past couple years. It is very conveniently located to travel throughout the Halifax area without having to deal with being right downtown. The Lakeside Grill restaurant has great food and a wonderful view of the lake. Advice when booking -specifically ask NOT to have any of the “03” rooms on any floor as this room backs onto the elevator banks. You will hear a loud rumble every time anyone uses the elevator. We experienced this the first time we were there but forgot to make the room request when booking. And when we arrived, the hotel was fully booked. To be fair, the rumbles do subside during the night but certainly start up around 5 am again. The wi-Fi connection was terrible with connection constantly dropping. And if you value your elbows, watch out for the pointy ends on the toilet paper holder!
