“Would probably look around next time”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We stayed here in September. The room was quite dated and more than anything, the problem I had was all of the extension cords plugged into extension cords. Not a good thing. Very dimly lit too. Had problem reading with the door and curtains closed at night. Everything we wanted to see was across the toll bridge in Halifax. Next time I will probably pay a little more, but will stay in Halifax.

This is an older property, and I think suited to trades visiting the city to work. Rates reasonable, and the chap at the front desk Robert was very helpful, answering our questions easily. Room was large and clean, needs some upgrades inside.
We stayed two nights here, and we would stay there again.

The rooms were very tidy, the beds were comfy, looked like new paint on the walls. Older style rooms but saw no bugs or had any weird smells. AC worked great, parking out front of rooms, convenient off the highway, gas station & small restaurants close by. Asked the staff about doing laundry the one man said in the basement which was more then creepy! We did our laundry but realized people live in the basement & rent rooms. The kitchen/laundry room was community kitchen which was disgusting it had dirty walls, floors, smelled of smoke, dead bugs everywhere & not to mention the 8 camera's watching you. If you don't go to the basement it seems like a very descent place for the price/location.

We stayed for four nights recently and found the Lake City Motel to be a great find. Granted it's not in Halifax, but it's a short drive over the bridge and the price is right. The rooms are clean and spacious with a table, fridge and microwave. The bed is comfy and the bathroom is new and spotless. There is a Sobey's and Atlantic Superstore within close proximity and this is great for eating meals cheaply. We didn't hear any noise and have no complaints.

We did the touristy things in Halifax, but also spent a day in Cole Harbour at the Cole Harbour Heritage Park. The trails are wonderful. Motel (and trails) highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were in a non-smoking room on the upper floor and heard no noise and smelled no smoke !

Very clean...cheap and convenient however very noisy. This hotel rents out their rooms weekly and monthly to people working and going to school in the area which makes it very noisy with the comings and goings of the people living there. Car doors opening and closing (4:30am)...hotel room doors slamming etc. Did not get much rest.

Clean, big and restful room. Some bathroom tiles were chipping off and we had to run the shower for a couple minutes before getting hot water, but overall everything was fine! The motel is far enough for Main St for it to be quiet at night. Not quite far from Halifax too. Management is super friendly, they even sent us back our forgotten pillows!
