Quaint, Charming, Very Clean Motel, Looks good outside but even better inside. Full Continental breakfast which is exactly what it is. The staff goes beyond it self for the patrons. I would highly recommend this place to stay if you are in Halifax NS.

I booked this hotel in advance for the tenants' of my clients as I was selling their house and wanted the tenants to be comfortable for the weekend while we showed the house. I booked the king suite because there were 5 of them. When I booked I mentioned they were a family and bringing a small dog. No issues. When they went to check in, they downgraded them to a regular room because that was apparently the only pet-friendly room. Even worse, they wouldn't credit me and money even though the price difference between the kind suite and the standard room was $40. Dawn was extremely rude on the phone and as someone who has worked in customer service for 15 years, and had planned to use this hotel to put my clients up multiple times, I will NEVER use this hotel to book clients to stay in, ever again. Really really disappointing.

Response from Ronald Toogood, General Manager at Coastal Inn Halifax
Responded 7 Apr 2022
We are very sorry the stay for your clients did not go as planned. When our guests are booking through a third party online, it is important to let the hotel know directly of any requests such as having a pet. When booking , there is always an immediate response to let you know what to expect or when to contact the hotel especially with pets as we want to make sure we are able to accommodate them before they arrive. It is unfortunate that the your request do not get entered when the reservation was made through the third party. When your clients showed up, we were able to accommodate them quickly by finding them an available pet room. It may not have been the same room type as previously booked, and we apologized for that, but that room type was not available. We did change the rate accordingly and it was a very small difference between the 2 room types . Also there was a pet fee of $25 per per per stay (max. 7 days). Again, we are sorry you did not have a great experience in booking your clients. It is always best practice to contact the hotel directly after booking online just to make sure your requests were received so that it will be a smoother check in process for your clients.

First off, the staff are top notch for a property with 60 units. Guests are still made to feel like they are staying in a cozy, family run business, despite having to adapt to a post_Covid reality (the breakfast is more than adequate considering the restrictions placed on them). The rooms are above par if you factor the nightly rates charged for a similar quality room in the downtown. I guarantee you, this will be my new go to place when I travel to Halifax from now on. I’m so glad I decided to book with them (a king suite for less than a double queen at my old spot). Totally worth the chance/change. Kudos to the housekeeping and front desk staff; a wonderful combination that equaled a great stay!

This hotel is in a kind of an out-of-the-way spot, and you might miss it unless you found it online. We found the place to be an excellent bargain. The room was spacious and comfortable, the linens were clean and the staff were very friendly. The continental breakfast is marginal but edible. We will definitely stay here again as it is very close to all the shopping in Bayers Lake

Hi AnneL2451 Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor with regards to your stay with us in Halifax. We hope you enjoyed “Glow Halifax” and it was my pleasure to drive you to the event as I myself went the week before and I knew there was a “time window” for you to enter.

Lobby is Home-like. Night clerk made check in seemless. Rooms are moderate large. Shower water was hot at all times of the day. Breakfast was ample enough. Wish I would of brought my bathing suit to swim in the indoor swimming pool. I have no complaints. Would come back anytime I am in the area again.

I thought this hotel was very good value for money, it was well run the room was a good size and clean. It is a little bit out off Halifax but that was why I picked it. there is a pool which I did not use and a guest laundry facility. The breakfast room is in the foyer but it is a good size and the was nice. There is also a computer for the guests to use and free printing. Most impressed with the free DVD service and boxed games for children.

Very outdated, front desk (at least 'don' the person I dealt with) very unprofessional, Played around with pricing and booking and overall poor experience - would rate it in the bottom 10 percent of all accommodation I have stayed at in over 65+ countries travelled. Can find much better value elsewhere.
