Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
La chambre était propre et les lits confortables, bien que des déchets avaient été oubliés dans le micro-ondes. Le service du déjeuner termine à 9:30 en semaine, ce qui est trop tôt lorsqu’on est en vacances. La piscine est décevante, car il n’y avait pas de glissade, contrairement à ce qui apparaît sur les photos d’Expedia. L’eau et le plancher de la piscine ne sont pas très propres. Nous n’y sommes allés qu’une fois sur un séjour de 4 jours. Cela dit, l’emplacement géographique était idéal pour nos besoins, près des autoroutes et de la ville d’Halifax.

Where to start.... we confirmed with the hotel that the slide and hot tub were working before booking. We arrive and the slide is gone, hot tub drained, ramp was blocked and my elderly mother struggeled to get to the pool, that also had no hand rain to get into. The hotel was filled with homeless people, that normall wouldnt be an issues except the fightng, drug use, and the lady who peed infront of our window. Check out was at noon and house keeping woke up us at 7am, and was told we would not be checking out till noon and the same lady came back 2 more times and even came in while I was sleeping. Horrible place. Avoid as much as possible. Save your $300 and go across down the road.
