    « I love this hotel!! »

    I stay here whenever I am in the HRM. There are other options close by, but this one is by far the best. The restaurant/lounge has excellent food and everything you need or want is nearby. The highway is easily accessible which makes commuting easier. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. I definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Back Home »

    Always feel welcome at the Hotel. Staff remembers my name and what I like to drink! Well come back again when I am in the Halifax/Dartmouth area weather for business or pleasure. great Hotel - Great Staff

    « Satisfied guest! »

    Property was clean, staff were wonderful! The service and commitment of its employees is top notch and they make you feel at home! There is no doubt we will be back! Thank you all for a most wonderful stay!

    « Personal trip »

    Excellent hotel ,beautiful clean rooms,great restaurant and bar,close to all the shopping you need, and a wonderful full breakfast menu starting at 6 am.Friendly staff at front desk and inside the restaurant areas.Hotel has a lot to offer for sure.If you have to go into Halifax early morning you best get an early start to beat the traffic though!! The hotel has a sign in lobby showing when the best and worse times are for traffic into the city.I would definitely stay here again for sure.Very easy to find once you take turnoff into Dartmouth crossings.

    Best Western Dartmouth is a great hotel for anyone travelling for business. The staff are generally courteous and professional, and the location is great for anyone working in the Burnside area or wanting to explore Halifax as it is quite close by (just make sure you have some change on hand for the tolls). I was particularly pleased with my last visit as I had had a long day of driving, and upon arrival was surprised with a free room upgrade. Although it may have seemed like a small gesture, it really made all the difference for this work trip!

    « Nice spot. »

    My family and I came here for an overnight before school started for a little getaway. It's a great spot. It's clean, is visually appealing and has a nice pool. The only thing that's negative about this spot is how It's not really close to anything but you can get to most of what you'd want to see within 10-15 mins drive.

    « Meh »

    Came into Halifax to a beautiful sunset and we were really excited to relax and see it from our hotel room. First of all the staff was great, hotel is ok. Rooms were ok, the floor had dips in it, almost like the padding was gone, under the carpet. So we get to our room and bam, no sunset, we had a wonderful view of a freaking wall two feet from our room. I don't think that you could've have purposely put us in the worst room in the hotel. i have to tell you after that it was all over, this was probably the worst view from a hotel that i have ever stayed in ...the walls are paper thin.

    « Typical Good Best Western »

    Situated in a semi-industrial area and is about 15-20 minutes across either toll bridge ($1.00 per trip) to Halifax. Not difficult to find. Typical room, comfy bed and pillows. WiFi. Good breakfast with scrambled eggs, meats.

    « Wedding »

    I recently attended a wedding at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the meal. I am unable to eat gluten and I generally do not eat in restaurants for fear of becoming sick. At this wedding my server asked if anyone at my table had allergies. Of course I told him and, for the rest of the night, I was taken care of. Everything that came out of the kitchen for me was gluten free. From the delicious soup, to the main course and even a decadent chocolate dessert! It was so good I thought to myself that this couldn't possibly all have been gluten free and that I was probably going to have to leave early. I danced all night without any more worries. Kudos to the staff at the best western plus hotel. I loved it so much I have even checked out the regular menu at their restaurant and I plan to come back with my husband.

    « no regrets »

    We selected this hotel because it had great reviews and was close to the airport at the end of our Nova Scotia vacation. Just want to let the hotel know how important it is to feel at home and be comfortable when traveling. When we checked in there were friendly smiling faces eager to help. Jackson was one of those. Thanks from Napa Valley California. I almost forgot to mention the comfortable cozy beds. Housekeeping staff is also great.

    « Nice suite »

    My wife and I stayed here during thanksgiving in a jacuzzi suite. The jacuzzi was great, fell asleep once in it. Room was very large, 3 times the room I'm in now. Room was very clean. Breakfast was good, lots to be had. Staff were very nice and helpful. The king bed was too firm and the pillows too thick . I was able to get thinner pillows but settle to try the bed a second night with new pillows and it wasn't any better. Too bad, next time I'll make sure it has a softer bed. All in all it wasn't too bad and the price was very reasonable.

    « Good cleaning staff »

    Stayed here over the last weekend. Had a really clean room and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Would not say the same about my front desk interactions. From the day that I checked in until I left I had talked to the same lady. She was impolite and frankly didn't seem to care that I was staying there. I wasn't told about any of the amenities or even when breakfast was. It's quite bad when you have to do all that research on your own. The day I left I had a different lady and she was a delight compared to the first woman that I had spoken with on the first two afternoons previous. In the future maybe you could treat all of your guests with the same respect even if we don't look like we have a lot of money.

    « Trends restaurant is Halifax/Dartmouth's best kept secret! »

    This restaurant is just great! Try the seafood medley! The banana bread pudding is to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant and Amy is a wonderful server! Can't wait for Thanksgiving Dinner there next Monday's!

    « Great Bed but heating system variable »

    I had good night overall as the bed was great but heating was tricky and a little noisy..Also, watch the price of beer in the restaurant.although the food was good. I loved the carrot ginger soup....and the waitress was A-1. The location is a little isolated and the view was of the parking lot. The price included breakfast which was just OK and selection limited.

    « Restaurant and cleaning staff excellent!! »

    The food and service in the restaurant is great. The cleaning staff does a great job and are very accommodating. The front desk staff have something to learn. Oct 1 and 2nd I have stayed here. Both days I have been served poorly by the same woman. I also had my credit card charged an extra 100 dollars in case of damage. I was not told about this when I checked in and when I asked about it she acted as if it was no big deal. Well it is when you Are not told about it and have no intention on harming your hotel room. Next time in Dartmouth I will be looking at other hotels who appreciate their customers.

    « Wedding party »

    This was a very good choice for the event staff was great for the banquet As for the hotel itself was great good value for your money nice clean and close Dartmouth nice breakfast with your room very busy. Great job to the staff here

    « 3 star hotel with 5 star attributes »

    Really impressed with the quality of staff and facilities. Three star prices for close to five star service. Clean, comfortable and friendly. The food in their restaurant was very good and it was nice to have a free breakfast that was not just continental. Angela, the lady on the desk arranged for my friend who was feeling quite ill in the morning to stay a little longer in the room. Just finished up a three week trip of the Maritimes, 16 different accommodations and this one overall impressed me the most!

    « Excellent Stay »

    Hotel was great. Internet super compare to other hotel. Breakfast lots of choice. Room was everything expected. Hot tub needs service and Pool area not that clean. Stayed at another hotel for one night , way trip went. That hotel was not good. Will stick to Best Western.

    « Nice hotel »

    Nice hotel with a great buffet breakfast. Nice decor and clean! Would definately stay here again. Ask for a room on the 2nd floor and seems as though the rooms are larger off the ground floor.

    « Convenient and great restaurant »

    Very Convenient and quiet location close to Dartmouth Crossing as well as bridge to Halifax. Trendz restaurant serves great meals and is good value for money. Rooms are spotless and beds very comfortable. Good wireless internet service throughout the hotel.

    « Great stay »

    Recently spent two nights here. We've been here before and will be back. As always we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast offered lots of choice and a nice timeframe to enjoy it in. The hotel is located close to both MicMac Mall and Dartmouth Crossing and not a complicated drive into Halifax.

    « Musty room »

    The hotel staff were very friendly however the room , which was listed as non smoking smelled!! It was very musty stale smell. The hallway smelled of smoke. The carpet was old and desperately needed to be replaced. The bed looked lumpy !!.. I could not stay there in that smell. The staff tried to find us another hotel as there were no other vacant rooms. I do not understand hotels allowing smoking in any rooms!!

    « A Good Hotel Near Halifax »

    We found this property to be comfortable, clean and appropriately priced. We were also pleased with the attached restaurant. After a long trip from Digby, it was good to be able to have dinner without driving.

    « Great friendly place and great help »

    How nice to be so close to Halifax yet have a wonderful quiet place to stay. The people that work here are friendly, helpful and caring. The free breakfast was very good with lots of choices and the dining room in the hotel had really good food and our waitress was a treasure. There is a work out room a pool and office facilities if needed.

    « Wonderful time »

    We found our time here excellent, great attention to guests. Close to Halifax and other points of interest. Staff is very friendly, breakfast very good. Offer you opportunity as to when you want your room cleaned. When we were there, they were putting in new beds and brand new towels. Keeping everything up to date. Nice out door mall with lovely restaurants near by, where we tried out a few.

    « Bad Experience »

    breakfast wasn't hot , eggs terrible , sausage and potatoes tasted like grease , coffee very good , bed sheet worn out completely , duvet dirty and mattress cover dirty , toilet seat loose nice new rug in room and in hall . very quiet night .

    « Do you have allergies &/or asthma? »

    We did not stay here. We asked to see a room before we registered and it was a good thing we did. I have allergies and asthma and I'm very sensitive to chemical odours and any kind of smoke. The room we looked at and the hallway were not good enough for me to stay there. We chose the Best Western Chocolate Lake over this hotel and were very pleased (for the same price).

    « Nice, Quiet Location »

    The room was comfortable and clean. As the hotel was completely booked, a sign by the elevators listed the best times to go to breakfast and not be too crowded, which was nice. Breakfast offerings were very good, both hot and cold. The property is close to shopping and restaurants.

    « State of the art, modern Halifax hotel »

    After 10 days travelling through the lovely, rustic Cape Breton countryside, we were ready for a return to fast internet and cable TV. The BW Plus delivered in spades - modern, lusciously air-conditioned room, very fast internet, decent restaurant, pool and exercise room. Very refreshing!

    « Pool/sauna was out of service for days, no fan in washroom. »

    Pool was out of service (only reason I booked there). Air conditioner was falling apart, service was not good at all ( I am 27 and they looked at me like I was a child ), didn't ask me how my stay was when I left, and he answered phone calls before assisting me in my check out so I was standing there waiting. And there was no fan in the bathroom?? Hard to get ready for work when the mirror is fogged up for 20 minutes. For the price I paid, I felt like I deserved a partial refund for not being able to take advantage of the pool.

    « Loud Air Conditioner »

    Nice place, clean, expected and got good service, nice breakfast but coffee/tea set up in the midst of everything so waited in line up for hot beverage. The only real issue was a really really loud air conditioner unit- my husband and I hardly slept (forgot my earplugs) and my husband can usually sleep though anything - because of this I wouldn't stay there again.

    « Best Western - This hotel should be a Best Eastern!! »

    This hotel looks pretty new. Nice and clean. And the staff is awesome. Room was clean - we had the 2 X Queen size. Pretty much had what a typical short stay hotel would have, though no microwave or small fridge. Had a coffee maker. Nice. Area was quiet. Had a great sleep. Beds comfy and the pillows good. Another plus to this, as with all the BW I have stayed at, was the free breakfast - well should I say "included breakfast". Nice selection. Hot breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage, and the typical choice of breads and muffins, cereals, fruits, yogurt, and juices. Nice way to start the day. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Another good stay at a BW »

    The rooms are nice and the staff is good. Breakfast was decent - lots of choices. One complaint - our room did not have a microwave - something I wouldn't worry about normally but on this one occasion we needed one! Pool very 'green' but otherwise seemed okay -- and it was warmer than some pools we had been in on this trip!

    « Love it there! »

    This hotel has great employees and management. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The layouts are nicely organized. We were there for different events and occasions and everyone goes above and beyond at all times so we can enjoy a wonderful experience. Plus, the restaurant has a diverse and delicious menu, including wine pairing. A gem close to fun shopping destinations and other good spots. Also, this hotel is close to the airport. Thanks to all!

    « best hotel ever »

    this hotel is the best I've never stayed at!!! Food is crazy, restaurant is more than a 5star, and with and excellent service. Very very clean and tidy. Spacious room and the beds are just awesome, you sleep as if you were in a cloud. Service at the reception is quick and people are very friendly, you feel like home. I recommend this hotel if you want to relax and do not want to worry about anything. Everything is being taken care of. Can't wait to go back.

    « Our Stay at Best Western Plus in Dartmouth »

    The Best Western Plus in Dartmouth was an attractive hotel. My children made good use of, and enjoyed the pool and the gym. The staff at the Best Western Plus were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, courteous and professional. We found the rooms to be very comfortable, especially the beds. The rooms were also very clean. It was great to be able to control the temperature of the room. We really enjoyed having a bar fridge in each room, as it allowed us to buy snacks, and lunch items, which in turn allowed us to save money that we were able to use on enjoying our vacation more. This was a major receive for us choosing the Best Western Plus. It was great to have a large desk with a comfortable chair to sit at when we were using our computers, as well as a cozy reading chair. It was also very nice having a t.v. with multiple channels for our relaxing time before bed. The cleaning staff were amazing, so very friendly without being intrusive. The only things we would like to see added to this wonderful experience would be a change of breakfast items. It was hard eating the same things for five days in a row. It would have been nice to perhaps switch out a couple of things, and perhaps add pancakes and bacon. The only thing that needs to be added to the bathroom is perhaps an exhaust fan. The bathroom steamed up quickly after one shower. Overall, it was a wonderful, worry fear, relaxing stay, that I would very much enjoy repeating in the future.

    « Amazing again »

    Stayed here a few years ago and it's only gotten better. Staff were great with directions and asking how our day was when we got back each day. The kids swam in the pool that was crystal clear and clean. Beds were comfy and it was like the linens were new. Soft towels too. Breakfast had everything you could want and was fresh. Nothing microwaved or premade. My wife has allergies so the server got her fresh eggs to avoid any cross contamination. Amazing service. All round a great hotel with a great restaurant too. Will be back if we are down this way.

    « Bike trip »

    Stayed 2 nights. Pleasant desk staff very helpful Rooms were nice and large very clean with nice comfortable beds Rated were very acceptable. Location is very good Comp breakfast is excellent with hot foods as well as yogurt, fresh fruit and cereal

    « Hassle free, comfortable stay. »

    Booked late after a good chunk of driving from PEI, absolutely zero problems getting 4 adults and 4 young adults checked in. Actually double teamed the paperwork and and keys for us. The attached lounge was cozy and pours an honest drink. Kids hit the pool and we were able sit down in a tranquil setting and quietly review the trip so far. Well done BW Dartmouth, hope we get to see you again.

    « Trip to Nova scotia »

    Wonderful place to stay! Clean great location!! Service was great. Close to the halifax waterfront . Not far from peggy's cove, Annapolis valley. I would recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Nova scotia.

    « Family Road Trip »

    Overall good value from this hotel. We used it as a base for day trips in and around the Halifax area. Had good access to the highway, but is located in an industrial area so you need to drive everywhere from the hotel. Good breakfast and very helpful staff.

    « Quiet rooms, tasty breakfast »

    We enjoyed our stay, and the rooms were very quiet for a full house. The complimentary hot breakfast was excellent, but the area was a bit cramped when it was very busy. We also enjoyed the in house restaurant. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Loads of parking also. We would stay again.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    Stayed for two nights with family while I was on business. Hotel had everything a family could need. Lots of variety with breakfast and overall very tasty. Room was large and beds comfortable. Upgrade on the tv would be my only suggestion for improvement. Kids loved the warm pool and made use of the restaurant on site which my picky daughter thought was great. Not a whole lot within walking distance would be the only major drawback.

    « Great Hotel »

    my wife and I decided to take a mini shopping trip to Halifax/Darmouth for some shopping and decided to stay here. Check it was fast. Our room was very clean and quiet. Bed was comfortable. I used the pool in the morning it was great. 6ft deep in the deeper end and 3.5ft in the shallow end, would be perfect for any family as well as business. Breakfast was very good in the morning had Waffles, Eggs, Sausage, hash browns, Toast, Yogurt and Eggs. A lot of people there but the area was big and people were moving at a good pace. Shopping was very close, Darmouth Crossing and the Mic Mac mall were not too hard to find either. (used a gps) but they were close. Also the Free Wifi worked pretty good overall. I would stay here again in the future for sure

    « East Coast Trip »

    Stayed here while visiting the area & some family. We used it as a middle spot after visiting Hope Well Rocks & then staying here to go to Peggy's Cove. Then we couldn't get a second night so moved on to Lunenburg & then back the next night to stay here for two more nights to visit Halifax. Loved that they had on site laundry. The restaurant was a bit pricey but food & service was good. It was great to have breakfast included.

    « Great place to stay! Highly recommend! »

    Had a great stay here. Staff were friendly, rooms were spacious and very clean. No noise in the evenings from other guests enabled us to sleep well! Breakfast was included - lots of selection in terms of hot and cold foods (cereals, breads, yogurt, fruit, scrambled eggs, sausages and ham). Loved that they open up the whole restaurant area to allow guests ample seating for breakfast. The staff in the mornings were kept on their toes, it was a busy spot for breakfast and they kept everything well stocked and tables cleared. Most impressed! Very close to a major shopping area with restaurants/ Walmart/ Cineplex and other stores, only around the corner less than 5 mins away. A good choice in terms of being close to those areas yet still only about a 15 min drive to downtown area or even closer to Dartmouth crossing for some shopping. Kids loved the pool. It was an average size, only downfall was the small room and the strong chlorine smell as a result, even with all the windows open!

    « Great Hotel »

    Hotel is very nice and clean! Pool was super warm kids loved it. Breakfast was good. Overall great experience will definitely consider staying there again in the future. Not that far from Mic Mac mall. A few restaurants near by. We didn't try the hotel restaurant but it looked nice.

    « Best Western- Dartmouth »

    Totally enjoyed our stay .Staff are excellent and hotel is clean and bright.Also well located for shopping .Definitly would stay there again . Very nice hot breakfast included and haswi-fi,pool fitness center,etc. .

    « Great location with cozy pub »

    Friendly, professional check in. Great location for business traveller to Burnside. Relaxed pub with good menu in the hotel. Perfect if you are working late. The suites are good for longer stay and working in the hotel. Bed are so comfortable for sleep quality.

    « 2016 IPSC Canadian Nationals »

    The hotel rooms and staff were great but the Trendz Restaurant and Bar lacked staff for the amount of competitors (300 plus family members) and their needs on a daily/nightly bases. The meals are good and the breakfast is usual but they were extremely under staffed. The Trendz restaurant also did the banquet and the meal was just basic but ok. I would stay again as the rooms designs vary and it is clean.

    « second visit and not the last »

    we stayed here last year and decided to stay here again this year. just as clean and quiet as before. lots of parking and great room service. there is walking trail right besides the hotel. the pool is right by the lobby.

    « Nice hotel and great rates »

    We went to Nova Scotia and booked in this Best Western Plus. I can say that this hotel and Restaurant rank in the top 10% of all of the hotels we have stayed at in both the US and Canada. Service was outstanding, food and wine was exceptional. The people could not have been nicer. We liked this hotel so much we will book here again next summer. Centrally located to sights, history and shopping.

    « Wonderful and comfortable stay »

    Always enjoy our stays at the Best Western. Really felt like home. Everything we needed was right there to make for a relaxing stay. I have a hard time sleeping away from home and can honestly say I had a very restful and comfortable sleep both nights. We had the King Suite which made it great for our daughter to enjoy some privacy of her own. Looking forward to our next stay.

    « Great Place to stay »

    Love this hotel, friendly staff, free WIFI, great tv's in the rooms and lots of plugs, something I always look for in the rooms :). Rooms are very spacious and sparkling clean. Only thing I found was the restaurant is a little pricey!

    « Quiet »

    A very nice 3 star hotel. It's located about 25 mins from the airport in the Burnside Industrial area. Fairly new with nice, large rooms, clean and hygenic. Staff is very friendly. The hotel is also a convenient 2.5km (5 min) drive to Dartmouth Crossing Shopping Centre and easy access to main highways. Of note, the hotel was packed with families and many, many noisy kids. However, up on the 4th floor we didn't hear a thing. Very quiet. Nice sleep. The restaurant (Trendz) is well reviewed on TripAdvisor and Yelp. While the hot breakfast is very good, the layout is awkward and crowded in the peak season - it can be chaotic.

    « Mini vacation to visit friends »

    My husband and I took a week's vacation to visit friends in Dartmouth. We booked into the Best Western Plus Dartmouth Hotel & Suites. We had the most wonderful experience, we dined every night in the hotel restaurant the food was delicious and the drinks were fun. I can't say enough about how special the hotel staff were they made us feel like family. We were treated so well lots of laughter. The rooms were clean and spacious we woke up every morning feeling refreshed, ready to begin our day. The complimentary breakfast each morning was plentiful and ever so yummy. I would highly recommend this hotel to any tourist visiting Nova Scotia you will be treated with kindness and you will go away with a feeling of having had a nice stay this is definitely my new hotel of choice from now on.

    « check problems »

    I called your front desk and explained that I wanted to book 2 rooms but since we did not own a credit card, I was going to use one of a family relative. The clerk said it was no problem, that I would not need to present the card at check in and that we could pay damage deposit with cash. Well I booked the two rooms and when I got there they would not let us have our rooms without the actual credit card. We were very displeased since we drove 200 miles to get there and did not really bring any extra cash to pay the hotel. We mentioned going somewhere else and the clerk said that she would like for us to stay there but if we wanted to we could go look somewhere else because there was nothing she could do for us. What hotel sends a customer to a competition hotel. We paid cash, using funds that we were not prepared to spend there making us short on funds. The only thing she offered was not to charge a damage deposit on one room which is our money that we got back anyhow so we did not get any cut or discount for the miscommunication. Other than that you hotel is nice and we loved it there but not likely to go again because of the problem checking in.

    « Great staff, great service in a clean hotel »

    This is my new go to hotel in the Dartmouth area. The property is quiet and seems secluded even though it is off a busy area. The staff are welcoming and accommodating; always quick to help in whatever way they can. The property is very clean. The rooms are very comfortable and the beds and pillows are super cozy. I like that the cups and glasses in room are disposable so I have one less thing to worry about while traveling. The pool is small but we were alone in it most times so it really wasn't an issue. Fitness room is also small but the equipment is in working order. The hot breakfast was very good and the restaurant and catering serves really nice food cooked well.

    « Absolutely love this hotel!!! »

    We love staying at the Dartmouth Best Western Plus. When we called to book Loni and Jackson were extremely accommodating and helpful. Our room was big and the beds are extremely comfortable, as promised. Megan and Sabdan greeted us almost daily and sometimes gave us the best cookies ever! The breakfast was terrific and the girls that served us on weekday mornings could not have been nicer. We feel more like long lost friends than hotel guests. Our son-in-law had a celiac diet request and the chef came out to greet him and then prepared a complimentary celiac friendly breakfast everyday...complete with wrapped silverware. Great job folks. We stayed for 8 nights and left at 05:30am early one morning. Richard at the front desk sent us on our way back to Ontario with coffee, breakfast bars and juice because we were too early for the hotel breakfast. Does it get any better? The hotel is located in a peaceful, natural setting with a lake and trail right across the street. That being said it is also very conveniently located by Dartmouth Crossing stores. Our two favourites, Costco and WalMart are less than a five minute drive. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The only suggestion I would have is that all teams and groups be put in rooms far from other guests...especially guests with small children needing to sleep.

    « Great place to party; not to sleep. »

    This seemed like a good place to stay before our early flight. At 11 pm we could feel the bass from the party 4 floors below. After our second call the bass was turned down to where we could only hear it, not feel it. At 1 am the party was over & we could all sleep. Great room, nice exercise room, good breakfast, convenient 20 minutes to airport, lovely staff and we will NEVER stay there again.

    Great hotel, the food was amazing and service was great. The only thing that could of been better was the breakfast area in the morning, there was a large crowd and the layout didn't seem to work for the crowd and there were no utensils. Seemed like one lady was trying to handle it all. Other than that it was all excellent.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    This hotel is terrific! It is well located, quiet and the staff are fabulous. There was a good selection of food for breakfast and coffee pods are always available at the front desk. They even had cookies in the afternoon. The indoor pool is a nice warm temperature. Our room was large with a comfortable king size bed. Our only complaint was lumpy pillows which was rectified by Sara in housekeeping with a smile.

    « Very Comfortable, Great Bar Staff »

    Enjoyed our stay. Watch out for shady cab drivers (not hotel's fault). Beds were comfortable, slept in much longer than anticipated after wake up call. Didn't try the breakfast, but usually never have a bad experience at the Best Western chain of hotels

    « New, clean, commercial area »

    This BW Plus seemed newer than average, and bigger too. Large room with office desk was fabulous. FAST wifi. Plenty of parking. Hot breakfast bar nicer than average. Two things to note: first be aware they are militant about stopping breakfast at 09:00. Only God knows why?! Second, its located in a commercial area. But has very easy access to downtown Halifax in 5 minutes.

    « Quiet and Comfortable »

    After a long day of travel flying to Halifax, we were very pleasantly surprised by this quiet location and comfortable hotel. The beds were comfortable, the room was spacious and spotless. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fresh made and quite. This hotel is not in a major tourist area, so it was a taxi ride away from where we wanted to go for those activities.

    « Excellent place - comfortable - quiet - clean - courteous - lovely decor - »

    These guys were amazing for our day trip to dartmouth - their beds were so comfy that my daughter and i didn't want to get out of them - the pool was beautiful - their free breakfast was second to none - everything from apples down to gluten free cereal - the customer service was just awesome - would definitely go back - it is also literally 5-10 minute drive to everything - price was right as well

    « Comfortable, clean and quiet »

    We stayed for 2 nights, June 7&8th 2016. We found it to be a very convenient location. Staff was very friendly and courteous. I would like to give a kudos to the girl I think her name was Wendy. She was taking care of the breakfast that was included with our stay. She went out of her way to make sure we were happy and full ? The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the swimming pool as well. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel.

    « Dark and Depressing »

    Hotel décor is mostly dark colors (institutional steel grays and other drab colors). Found it dark and depressing. Staff was professional but not welcoming. Was disappointed with my stay. Would not pick this hotel for future stays.

    « Clean, spacious, courteous and super uncomfortable »

    This was a weekend get away with my spouse. The large room was very clean and spacious. The breakfast selection was good. The downfall, is something important considering the purpose of staying at a hotel is that the mattress was very uncomfortable. I mentioned it to the person at the front desk after the first night and they did not offer any suggestions. As a result sleep eluded my wife for two nights (I can sleep on a pile of bricks). They should consider something a little softer going forward.

    « Comfortable, clean and quiet - meets expected standards »

    This hotel fully meets the standards of Best Western. Comfortable beds, sheets and pillows. Located away from noisy areas. Staff were friendly and the breakfast met the usual standard. Hotel was priced according to the area.

    « Wedding in area »

    We were pleased with the staff, who corrected an issue right away. They followed us to our new room to make make sure their would not be any further issues. We were surprised at the way they professionally handled our request and addressed the process so it would not happen again.

    « Dartmouth Golf Club »

    Great place to stay, clean, friendly and hospitable. Situated in beautiful countryside amongst the greens. The short taxi ride from Town is the only downside as can be a little costly great if you have your own car.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    Stayed at this hotel for location and convenience. There are many selections for restaurants nearby. Accommodations were excellent and staff very friendly and helpful. There was a free breakfast which was very good and plentiful. Various shops within the vicinity. I will definitely be staying here again - highly recommend it!

    « Comfortable Stay »

    I stayed here for 5 nights recently on a work trip. Pros: - Hotel location is good - In the industrial park close to most major businesses - Fresh, CLEAN rooms and property - Really comfy beds - lots of outlets for charging near the nightstand which was very convenient - Big desk with a good chair was useful for completing work - Accommodating and friendly staff (allowed some coworkers a late check out with no problem) - Nice complimentary breakfast - Hot food rather than just continental was a treat - Restaurant food was tasty - Try the lobster poutine! Cons: - Coffee machine in the room was slow and a little outdated (coffee was available at breakfast and in the lobby at all times which made up for this somewhat) - People in the next room and hallways could be easily heard even when only speaking in a normal tone so privacy felt a little compromised - A few more menu options in the restaurant would have been nice! Overall, very pleasant stay - Would definitely recommend.

    « Close to shopping and the highway! »

    We recently had to spend a night in Dartmouth and once again chose the Best Western because of location, free parking, fair room rates and included free hot breakfast. Close to Dartmouth crossing or Burnside park and a couple minutes from the Halifax bridges.We enjoyed a couple drinks in the lobby bar and had great breakfast in the morning with lots of good choices!!

    « A great place to stay »

    We like staying here mainly because the rooms are very quiet, you don't hear elevator noise or people using the stairs. The rooms are very clean wirh comfortable beds. A complementary breakfast is served; good food and a really nice dining area. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.

    « Nice Clean Place »

    Very nice place to stay, close to everything. Very friendly staff that will go out of their way for you. I really like the ground floor and now when i go back there they will know that i would prefer a room on the ground floor. We usually stay at the Best Western's when we travel. Very reasonable rates.

    « Nice, clean hotel »

    Very pleasant and helpful staff, spacious rooms, plus free parking and breakfast. Quiet location. Just across the bridge from Halifax and close to shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed our night away.

    « Great Breakfast »

    Has very good stay. Room was very clean Free Breakfast was very good and pool was nice Hotel was very well located near shopping and restaurants. There was also walking trail across the street. Great price. Hotel was very quiet

    « Very Dated »

    Our first night here - they put us on the ground floor - handicap room. No big deal. We had been traveling for a few hours, first stop was the bathroom. I feel, the floor was slippery as though some one sprayed something on it. I screwed up my back (which isn't the healthiest to begin with) I couldn't move for the rest of the evening. we ordered room service my husband got the "JUMBO shrimp" (it was 3 tiny shrimps) when we asked about it, they said "Oh it goes by weight" WHAT???? whatever! I'm not happy, and I'm in pain.The bed was horrible, the room was dark and to top it off. there was a conference. so... I didnt sleep well, 2 hours at most.... @7 am sharp we hear cackling right outside our door. we requested to be moved. When I told them I feel, they offered to get me a hot water bottle. I'm sure they fear a law suit. I wont stay here again. Its not worth the money, the restaurant sucks

    « Fantastic hotel »

    Staff: Friendly Amenities: Pool, fitness room, bar/restaurant--with very friendly servers and good nachos! Area: Close to a big mall, very quiet, with enclosed areas for smokers Room: Fantastic! Separate bedroom which is great when someone wants to sleep and someone wants to watch TV. TV in each room. The "living room" is quite comfortable. Beds were really comfortable, but, and this is the only negative I have, the pillows were very uncomfortable.

    « Another Good night Stay for Business »

    As always enjoyed my stay at Best Western Dartmouth. Close to my customers and Highway. Staff always makes you feel very welcome. Great restaurant & Bar. Great FREE Hot Breakfast. Will be back again next month on business and to do a trade show at the Best Western,

    « Great family night away! »

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and beds comfy. Breakfast was tasty and lots available...even though there were a few hockey teams staying there...lots of selection and fully stocked. Never had any issues with noise from above mentioned sports teams. Great night sleep, will definitely recommend to anyone who asks.

    « It's was nice, but could be better. »

    Lots of pro's for this hotel. Free parking, good breakfast, big rooms, quiet, and has a very friendly staff. But I found the Internet slow. The view from my room was literally a brick wall. The fitness room was beat up, outdated and very simple. And you have to walk past the restaurant and into the lobby to get to the pool, which I found strange. But overall, a good Stay. Clean rooms, nice atmosphere all around and a pretty fair price. Would stay again.

    « Large rooms, well laid out and quiet »

    I staid here for only one night as I had a two day trip for work. This was my first stay at this hotel. Excellent location that is easy to get to. The price was decent and the room was very large and clean. Nice desk with ethernet cable available which I found worked better than the wifi which I did find to drop out a few times. I found the employees to be very helpful and friendly as well. There was a large hockey tournament with lots of children who were probably around 10 or so, so occasionally there were times where there were kids running around the halls but in general it stayed quiet and a very good experience. I suspect any other time it would have been even better, but that is nothing against the hotel, it's just the nature of having a few hundred kids running who are bored. I would- and have already suggested your hotel to other people. Will definitely be back.

    « Great Hotel Location for Business! »

    I stayed here back in July of 2015. The hotel was very clean and quiet. There was honestly nothing wrong with the hotel at all! The room was very large with a flat screen tv and a desk! In addition, there was a nice sized gym that was empty any time I went! I would recommend this hotel for business. It is located very close to a lot of businesses. There is also free parking!

    « Great experience »

    I spend a lot of time in hotels visiting my grandson. We try a new hotel each visit. I was very impressed with how clean this hotel is. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Good well priced restaurant on site and very well stocked complimentary breakfast included in price. Great beds and very quiet. Would recommend this hotel.

    « Business Stay »

    Bed was very comfortable, staff was very accommodating, Room could have used 2 chairs or a sofa instead of a huge desk. Restaurant was fabulous both for lunch and dinner. Good meeting facility. Located in a business area.

    « Excellent and comfortable stay! »

    We stayed here for 2 days. Honestly, VERY clean, comfortable and friendly. The cleaning staff were fabulous and friendly. The wine at the wine bar is CRAZY priced, but very good. Service is fab there. Continental breakfast was MORE than the average hotel; bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, eggs etc... all very well put together and flavourful. Hats off to the woman with the short hair who was shutting down the breakfast, and made a point to approach us and say, "Listen, I'm shutting down the breakfast as it's over now, but please come help yourself and make yourself at home"... she went out of her way, and she deserves a gold star for that client interaction. It was refreshing to have such a positive interaction with her in this day and age. I'd totally stay there again; absolutely.

    « Family weekend Away »

    Staff was friendly and the hotel was clean. However, we didn't receive the room amenities we booked originally (microwave), and we had music blasting (you could literally sing along) a good part of the night from below us in the auditorium - we requested a quiet room. Therefore, our 2 year old never slept, which meant we never slept. The sink faucet handle came off in my hand, and the toilet seat didn't fit properly, so every time you sat down, it would slide off the rim. lol The free breakfast was really tasty, but there wasn't enough utensils and no napkins.

    « Staff Party »

    The hotel is in a wonderful place close to shopping/highway and very accessible. The staff and rooms are fantastic as well as the food that was served at our staff party. We are hoping that this is where we have all our staff parties in the years ahead.

    « Comfortable, but a little hard to find »

    We stayed here for two nights in early October. The hotel is clean, comfortable and friendly. The rooms are quiet and spacious with comfortable beds and good bathroom amenities. A basic hot buffet breakfast was included--scrambled eggs, sausages, cereal, etc--though the room where it is laid out is very small. Breakfast seating is in the bar area and some of the breakfast items are actually to be found on the bar itself, which is a bit confusing. There's also very good coffee in the lobby. The in-house restaurant is good. The hotel itself is situated in an industrial/business area which empties out at night, so there isn't much else around. It was also difficult for us to find it coming off the highway, even with GPS.

    « Great service and restaurant »

    Best Western can be relied upon for a clean and comfortable stay. Trenz Restaurant provides a great selection of food ..all deliciously prepared and presented and right onsite for convenience. It is a 5 min drive from the shopping at Dartmouth Crossing and also 5 minutes from the new Trampoline Park on Wireless Rd in Dartmouth. Good pool and fitness center onsite.

    « Place to Stay!! »

    Staff were very friendly! Food at the restaurant is amazing! I took my dinner and breakfast there! I highly recommend that you try their sea food soup! Room are clean and bed very comfortable! I will definitely good back!

    « Excellent experience »

    Stayed her on business. This was my third time to this hotel. Always excellent. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Good service. Especially enjoy the delicious food at the restaurant and in particular the seafood options.

    « Excellent stay at BW Plus! »

    I had a very pleasant, enjoyable stay at BW Plus in Dartmouth. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the staff makes you feel at home there. The hot breakfast is certainly a plus and was very good. I would certainly recommend this hotel will return upon my visit to Dartmouth in the future. Great job BW!!

    « Exceptional Breakfast »

    The breakfast is much better than most hotels, the breakfast is hot but also offers many other choices. The family slept so well on the super comfortable beds. The room was spacious enough for a family of 4. The heated pool was enjoyed by all.

    « "Best" Western »

    this is a great location and property i use it lots. the rooms are clean the hotel is quiet, breakfast is included and it has lots of parking available. its easy to take a taxi or the ferry over to Halifax and relatively inexpensive

    « Modern hotel »

    Updated decor, nice price, large room, comfortable beds and furniture in room, the breakfast buffet was excellent given that it was included, friendly staff, plenty of parking, great location for Halifax/Dartmouth if you have a car, quiet stay. The bathroom floor was like walking on ice and the lighting in the bathroom was really harsh (bright white). Towels seemed new and plush. Overall we were very happy and if we were in the area again in future with family we would stay again.

    « Excellent »

    The hotel was an excellent choice of hotel as it had a great location close to Halifax and Dartmouth. The service was great with friendly staff. It was close to restaurants and shopping. We really enjoyed our stay with Best Western and would stay again. They had great service.

    « Great for business, pleasure or a meal out in Dartmouth »

    Have used this hotel numerous times for business meetings, training and events. Superb on all occasions. It is a hidden gem in the restaurant and bar; incredible consistent yummy food at every visit. All the staff are outstanding and go above and beyond. Worth the visit if you have travels to Dartmouth or want a dinner out.

    « nice hotel friendly staff »

    i have stayed at this property quite a few time and have allways been treated great, the staff seems to go out of there way to look after you, their breakfast was hot and fresh.everything is very close to this hotel, shopping and hockey along with many other attractions.

    « Pleasurable Stay »

    Booking the room was seamless, check-in was very easy, rates were competitive, used my CAA rate plus got Best Western loyalty points, room was very comfortable, fitness room right across the hall although I didn't use. Also has a pool which I've used in the past. Missed out on the complimentary breakfast, although one of the girls on the front desk said I could've ordered off the menu and it would've been complimentary.

    « Luxury for an average price! »

    WE got this hotel for an awesome low price and were delighted when we checked in and the front desk staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Upon arrival into our room we immediately noticed the fresh smell and the absolute cleanliness of our room. In our room we even had a fridge! Beds were nice and comfy and pillows plentiful. WE visited the pool area where we took a swim, the pool was amazing and nice and warm, fresh towels are provided poolside which is a nice touch. Parking here at this hotel is plentiful. While this hotel is not pet friendly (sadly had to leave doggies home) this was the only downside. A hot breakfast is provided til 9am on weekdays for FREE...amazing. WE will def be booking this hotel again, VERY happy!

    « great spot »

    Great Hotel in Nova Scotia. Friendly staff. Room was nice and beds and pillows comfortable. There was a hockey tournament in town and the staff made sure to put me in a quite section of hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Great hotel. »

    stayed for 2 nights and will stay again when in Dartmouth. very clean and modern rooms. lots of space. plenty of free parking. hotel is just far away enough from the busy road that you can't hear any road noise. great restaurant and lounge in the hotel also.

    « The place to stop at »

    Well located near the Burnside Industrial Park. Quiet surrounding, Easy access. Good restaurant on site. Good choice for breakfast. Clean and well set up rooms. Lots of parking space available. Shopping and activities nearby.

    « The Best Run Hotel in Nova Scotia »

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western, Dartmouth, from November 23-25. From the moment we walked in the front door, to the day we checked out, we were treated like family. The staff were very riendly, always pleasant and helpful. The room was spotless. The bed very comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was a bonus. What a lovely feature! There was also a 4 piece bathroom in the room. The room was large and well appointed. We ate at the restaurant and the food was superb. As well, there was a complimentary hot buffet breakfast every morning. The staff treated everyone like life-long friends. Room service was prompt. The food was always hot and delicious. What an atmosphere. My husband has to be in Halifax frequently for medical reasons and this will be the hotel of our choice. We have tried other hotels over the past year, but none even came close to the experience we had at the Best Western. Congratulations to the Management and staff who run the hotel, you are doing it right!! I now know why the hotel is booked to capacity. Why would anyone go anywhere else!!

    « Back Home Again »

    Always feels like home at this Hotel Some staff remember my name - Bar/Restrant Staff know what beer I drink etc. Great Food & Service. Great Business location can get to my customers in both Halifax & Dartmouth . Easy access to highways and bridges.

    « Near Dartmouth crossing »

    really nice hotel, we go there every time we have to go to IWK hospital. You could almost walk to Dartmouth Crossings where there is a ton of store, shops and restaurants. There is a really nice pool, the hotel is clean and beautiful. The free hot breakfast, buffet-style is always a nice way to start the day. We highly recommend it!

    Had a great stay at BW in Dartmouth. Service and amenities were great. The location was very convienent. The added bonus was the excellent hot breakfast buffet. I would certainly recommend this hotel. Great job BW!!

    « Shopping Weekend »

    Checked in to B/W Darthmouth on sat nov 14and was told we were booked for the previous day, booked on line, Fri in halifax and sat in darthmouth.The lady at the front desk said no problem as this happens from time to time and she corrected the reservation.As always is a great place to stay,and the buffet breakfast was excellent.We were not impressed with a gentleman working in the bar we requested a couple of glasses for some drinks in our room , he gave us a couple of wine glasses we asked for a beer glass instead ,he said NO all we could have was the wine glass?????and he was quite rude. We have stayed in a lot of hotels over the years and this is the first time this has ever happened. I guess one bad apple does not reflect on the rest of a great staff.

    « Nice trip. »

    Wonderful place to stay. Beds are really comfortable, food is excellent and location is top notch. Stayed on Halloween and was fun to see the staff dressed up and pleased that we did not experience any negative experiences.

    « Always great. »

    Wonderful place to stay. Great staff and hotel. Close to lots of things and easy to get to off the highway. Highly recommended. The pool is very loud. Great breakfast. Lots of parking. Great restaurant.

    « Girls Shopping Weekend »

    Nice spot. The staff were friendly, the hotel is clean, what more do you need? Wifi worked fine, no cutting out like some places. Food in the restaurant was good, but the breakfast is a self serve deal, which is ok. Perfect location in terms of shopping. I'd stay here again.

    « Good Food, quiet and comfort sleep »

    I used stay this hotel when I visit to purchase supplies from Halifax for my business and I was always delighted with their service and nice atmosphere they provide. I was really impressed with their breakfast like home made potato. It was fresh and delicious. Staffs were kind and really helpful too. I love to stay at this hotel

    « Excellent Place to Stay »

    This has been our favorite place to stay in when visiting the Halifax and Dartmouth area. Hotel location is close to the main highway from airport and convenient and timely to access. Friendly and professional staff. We absolutely love the restaurant and lounge areas. Food menu is outstanding; had the seafood chowder on several visits.

    « We would stay here again »

    Very nice hotel, comfortable, clean, excellent restaurant and helpful, friendly staff. One complaint, there were 3 of us so we had to use the pull out couch , absolutely terrible mattress, extremely uncomfortable. They really could use new mattresses or pull out beds. This hotel is very close to Dartmouth Crosing and the price is right

    « Best Western Plus Burnside »

    My husband and I stumbled upon this hotel after a long day of driving. We had been driving for over 8 hours and were too tired to go into Halifax, so we decided to stop here for the night. Great decision! Our room was clean, comfortable and QUIET! It is in a bit of an industrial park, but it had its own restaurant called TrendZ which was excellent.Nice surprise! We were very glad we found it. Close to shopping in Dartmouth and just a short ride into Halifax. Would highly recommend it.

    « Nothing special.... »

    Hotel is comfortable enough for a short stay. People are pleasant enough, food quality is average & choice quickly exhausted if you're staying more than a couple of days. Far better to head out to a good restaurant Place looks modern outside but decor is dated as are the facilities. Hotel looks as though it could do with a makeover... of days

    « Reasonably priced great accomodation »

    Went to Halifax for a family matter. We were 5 in the room. Staff very helpful in making our stay pleasant. Very clean and room large enough for our group. Overall we were very satisfied. Hot breakfast included for price of room. Had difficulty with WIFI but staff were very helpful in getting issue resolved.

    « Nice hotel, bad location! »

    This hotel was the usual BW Plus standard. We were only there for the night before flying out, but as usual the room was nice and comfortable, had a great sleep! The only bad thing was the location, in an industrial park, not really close to anything.
