6/10 Good

There was no cable. Remote wouldnt work the chrome cast. Even though i was told if i needed something to just pick up the phone and dial zero. I couldnt find a phone in my room. For some reason the tv had a Cam corder showing up in the source menu but i couldnt access it. Found that a bit concerning. AC was coated in dust. Bed was so low i felt like i was sleeping on the floor. Its an old building so i was able to hear everything that was going on in the room above me and some of the rooms around me. I could almost hear conversations. The sealant in the shower was dirty and moldy Considering all hotels were either booked or over $400 i didnt mind this as i only needed a place to lay my head for an appointment i had in the morning.

The most disgusting place in Halifax.
This hotel was the absolutely dirtiest, smelly most disgusting place I’ve ever stayed in. The shower had a clump of hair in it. It ruined my visit to Nova Scotia.

Budget hotel
The room was clean when I moved in. I stayed for 6 nights. The staff does not give you clean towels or take out your garbage unless you put a clean room sign out. The hotel does not have cable, nor satelite TV. The rooms have TVs but they do not receive anything. The room did have air conditioning that worked. There is no onsite parking. As I flew in I did not need any.

Disappointed Albertan
Not what I was expecting, there was no TV available and we're supposed to use our own net flix account to link to tv. No explanation as to how to do this. No parking except 2 hour parking on street. No hair dryer. Karrie staircases made it difficult get suitcases up to rooms
