I'll be picking up my son from school in April. (Dal) . Wanting to stay in the Halifax area ..I'll have a rental car so it doesnt have to be directly near the university. I would prefer to stay if possible near the water..perhaps a small cabin of some sort. There doesnt seem to be anything in the downtown area, but what about the Dartmouth area or close by. I would just rather enjoy a nice quaint motel or something of the sort as apposed to the chain hotels. Any recommendations would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!
