Reviewed 9 April 2017

We stayed here in July 2016. We liked that it wasn't far from Halifax boardwalk. The room was ok. The bed was nice. I like how the washroom was set up: the sink is in one area then there's a door and the shower and toilet are there. However, the toilet and shower area was very small. You don't have...

My stay was horrible. Poor service from the front desk. the worst room I have ever stayed in. Dirty and worn out. I understand its under renovation now but that was no good for my two night stay. NEVER again. Not your typical Holiday Inn.

There is extensive work being done on this Holiday Inn property. While I was there, on the day I was checking out, both elevators were out of service. I asked for a bellman to help me take my luggage down four flights of stairs, but they said they were understaffed and didn't know if anyone would be able to help...

DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL - DECEMBER 2016 I had a recent stay in this hotel and there were several things that went unaddressed. Mainly the fact that I had a mouse in my room. Problem 1: Rust coming out of the pipes. I had to get bottled water and drink that exclusively. Showering was fun when I had...

2016 National convention was held in the conference rooms at the hotel. Even though the hotel was obviously under massive renovations, the staff took very good care of us. The rooms were clean. The walls are a little thin, as I could hear the people next door to me talking. The conference rooms are nicely spaced out and separate from...

We recently stayed at this hotel for a Christmas party for one night. The hotel is currently under renovations which is a good thing, because overall the rooms, hallways etc are very tired looking. They seemed to be cleaned but they were just tired looking, dark and showing wear and tear. The ballroom was quite nice and the food was...

I stayed at the HI Harbourview for 5 nights as I was in Dartmouth for the week on a course and was told that there was a preferred rate. That said, the preferred rate was still quite high considering the extensive renovation of the property, and albeit I didn't hear much in the way of noise (mainly due to the...

We had booked this hotel the last night of our holiday to use loyalty points.

Beds were pretty comfortable and rooms were fairly clean but the whole hotel is definitely dated! Under construction but not a lot of noise or signs of it!

Booked two consecutive nights for a wedding taking place in the same hotel. This hotel is very dated and should have gone through a major renovation years ago. It is also sold to another chain but it is still staffed by Holiday Inn employees. It is obvious to see the higher ups are not spending a dime on repairs. Desk...
