We were at the end of our two week trip to Nova Scotia and wanted to spend a day in Halifax, Unfortunately, it was a Wednesday and the Rolling Stones were there on Saturday, so the visitor info was freaked out and said there was nothing to be had in Halifax. So we starting to panic as well. They called and of course they had rooms available. After arriving, I could definately see why. We arrived to see the boys out on the street, and immediately were not comfortable. Yes it is in a bad part of town which you could see immediately. We checked in, and our mistake was not viewing the room Before we paid. We were given a room on the 4th floor - no elevators, and had to carry our bags all the way up - dodging around the 7 bags of laundry sitting in the way. We walked into our room and right into our bed. Yes a small room with the TV on a wobbly stand at the foot of the bed. Not even a chair to sit on - yes it was small. Doors banging - people talking noisy outside. We went down to see if there was another room we could look at (when we originally called they said they had higher priced rooms as well) Suddenly - they had nothing else available - because the jacuzzi tubs didn't work anyway. We went back upstairs - took out the cell phone & called a bed & breakfast in Dartmouth who had a room avaible. Took our bags downstairs, and asked if we could check out. They said it was too late as housekeeping had left for the day???? dahhh We didn't have time to do anything - but the insisted they would still charge us for the one night. Our experience from the original call from the visitor info - driving there & checking out was total maybe 45 minutes and they would not refund our $$. Well, money isn't everything and we weren't comfortable at all - so we checked out anyway. The B&B was well worth it. For sure would never stay here or recommend to anyone. Very bad customer service - and for the price they were charging it was a shame for sure. I am sure that's the only way they could get their rooms paid for. In my personal opinion anyway.
