Smoking and Balcony or Terrace

My wife and I are planning a vacation to Moncton in August. My wife does not smoke. I do. So my question is: does anyone know of a hotel in Moncton that has rooms with terraces or balconies where I can smoke? Thanks in advance!

I am sorry to say that there are not any Hotels/Motels that I am aware of that have a balcony. You will find a few of the motels in the area that have doors with direct access to the outside instead of a hotel interior hallway that may work. I have lived in Moncton for fifty years and both my husband and I have been trying to think of a spot that would meet your needs. You didnt mention what area you want to stay in which may help for sure.Feel free to message me privately and I will do my best to answer your Moncton questions!

Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly.

As I have never been to Moncton before, I have no idea what area I want to stay in!

Actually I am one of those people who trusts fate - wherever a hotel (preferably upscale) that fills our need is located - that's the area we would have stayed in. Unless you have a suggestion for us? Although we will have a car, we're walkers, and would prefer a hotel that is more or less centrally located.

I'm not specifically referring to Moncton here, but even with a balcony, be sure to carefully read the smoking policy on the registration form when you check in. (Typically, you have to sign or initial it.) Some of them do include balconies or even the entire hotel property as a non-smoking zone, and do specifically mention that smoking on a balcony can incur an expensive additional fee. Also, before lighting up just outside an entry door, be sure to ask at the front desk if there are any local bylaws in effect ... many places do not permit smoking within a certain distance from an entry, in some cases, up to five metres away.

Additionally, despite Caribe's kind and generous offer to answer your questions by PM, I would encourage you to post them in the forums - that way you are more likely to get a variety of answers and information, and also the posts may also be helpful to other readers, current or future, and can be pulled up in site searches.

Re posting in the forum as opposed to PM: the truth is that I'm not a Trip Advisor expert - all I do is click "Reply", as I did with this. Is it going into the the Forum... or is it PM?

It's on the forum, happyleadet. To send a PM, click on a person's TA username, and a bit down the page on the right, you'll see a button "send message". Actually, happyleadet, it appears you do not have PMs enabled ... I don't see any option to send you one when I click on your name, and I do for Caribe. If you want to use the PM system, there will be something in your TA account settings that you will have to enable.

Hope this helps!

Hi Happy,

Are you still looking to find smoke friendly accommodations? Moncton is like any other area with no smoking laws however there's plenty of places to stay in Moncton where you don't have to venture too far to light up.

Yes I am. My preference is a centrally located and upscale hotel with a room with a balcony, but I'll settle for as close to it that I can get. And thank you!

The hotels that are within walking distance of the Main Street downtown bars and restaurants that would be considered "upscale" are the Marriot Residence Inn, Delta Beasujour, Chateau Moncton ( a bit further away, but still walkable) and the Crowne Plaza.The Ramada Crystal Palace in Dieppe is also within a comfortable walking distance from downtown, but further than some would like. Its right beside Champlain Place (major shopping mall, a newly opened theatre complex, indoor amusment park and Chapters book store. Like a previous poster stated none of these properties would take long to get outside, however, none have balconies and all treks to the outside to smoke would involve a elevator ride. The Rodd Parkhouse Inn is also on Main Street and does have a few motel sytle rooms where you can walk outside directly from your room, but it certainly wouldnt be considered upscale and wouldnt be my choice of accomadation. The cluster of Hotels and Motels in the city are near the Casino and Magic Mountian, Magnetic hill area. The Amsterdam Inn gets good ratings and that has motel, walk directly outside from your room, accomadations. Other hotels in that area are the Casion Hotel, Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Inn and a newly build Motel 6. This area of Moncton is not within walking distance of much with the exception of the Casino and Magic Mountian and the Zoo. So unless that is the purpose of your trip its definately a car-required area.Hope that helps!!!

FYI.... There is an old biblical saying: "Seek and ye shall find".

I just made a reservation at the Casino New Brunswick - for the Marquis Suite - top floor - a suite WITH A BALCONY!
