We spent a weekend at the Super 8 in Dartmouth on a special deal through the internet. Not a fancy spot, but very economical. Fridge and microwave. Comfy beds, clean and fairly quiet. Had some issues with the heat control and remote. We were close to the ferry so we went to Halifax on Friday evening. Enjoyed both near by...

I really enjoyed Super 8 in Halifax. The rooms are large (we stayed 3 adults and a baby in one room) and didn't felt cramped at any point, have large balcony and are very clean. The beds were super comfy and the common areas are great. Literally I couldn't find anything wrong with this hotel! It's not 4 seasons, but...

Rooms are simple, but well-appointed. Front desk was very accomodating- we had many small requests throughout our stay, including a 10 am check-in, changing rooms, etc. The complimentary breakfast was nice. Breads, cereals, juice, and coffee. This hotel is a stone's throw from the ferry to downtown Halifax, which ran frequently from morning until late into the evening. At 2.25...

I stayed at the Super 8 in Dartmouth on my last days in Halifax before flying back home. I had been on a round trip. The first three nights, I had spent in downtown Halifax, but I'd had a special offer and couldn't find any accomodations that fit my budget. Even though I was hesitant at first, it was really...

Average size rooms that are clean and reasonably priced for the area. Staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgable . We will not hesitate to stay here again

This is, without hesitation, the dingiest hotel I have ever in my life stepped inside of. It is dark, musty, and every surface of the room seems dirty. Whatever architect designed the building should have his designation stripped; the building should be demolished to the ground and rebuilt with glass windows and enough light penetrating the rooms so that the...

Great for last minute plans, pet friendly. We have stayed here several times over the past couple of years. Our most recent visit was on November 2, 2012. The hotel has become somewhat rundown since our last visit. Tub had rings of rust around the drain, and chipped and messy caulking in the bathroom, minor things overall. The mattress was...

Stayed here for one evening, Check in was a hassle. Have to pay room fee, we booked a king suite (160.00 ) plus a (200.00 ) safety deposit which was held on my credit card for 8 business days. Besides that, we had a nice stay, nice kind size bed, small sitting room with pull out couch that had a...

“Some rooms are draughtier than others. You could ask to try a few, to test them out. Make sure your floor is actually nonsmoking and that it's enforced. Maybe choose a different hotel?”

“Ask for a harbour view room - the other side doesn't have much of a view. The balconies on higher floors are also sheltered; on lower floors they are open to the rain.”
