Worst experience ever. False advertisement on the internet. The rooms looked nothing like the pictures. Stains on the floors, chair in the room had stains, bed was poor condition, and what looked like mould around the windows. I would not let my dog sleep there

The stuff was very friendly and they try their best to keep it clean. But the hotel itself is too outdated and very basic, room was small. But if you are on tight budget and couldn't make reservation ahead and still have to stay in Halifax (like we :))) - you will survive. There is no breakfast in hotel. But there are a lot of opportunities around

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The biggest highlight was rat infestation. A cookie lying on the table was eaten and there were some bites in our clothes. The staff were super rude. The room condition was terrible. Nothing was provided in the room. There is no lift and if you have to carry something heavy, good luck. The room on the fourth floor can not be darkened as there are huge round windows that were not covered. So, it was difficult to fall asleep.
