“Chocolate Lake Best Western is a SWEET place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Great location on a lake where you have access to the lake to swim or picnic. If swimming in a pool is more to your liking, then their indoor pool is quite adequate. Pretty much everything you need in a hotel. We had a suite which was fully outfitted with a kitchen. Nice modern hotel with flat screen TV's. Bed was comfortable and the hotel looked like it had been done over and added on to. A couple of minutes west of downtown, so you are not at the harbour. If that does not bother you, then this is the place to be.

Had a top floor room overlooking the lake. Lots of people boating and swimming. Amazing how clean the lake is. Hotel had an excellent restaurant and very good complementary breakfast.
I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Request lake view.

I stayed here for a few days while I was doing some renos at home. You really can't beat the location, minutes from downtown but you don't feel it when you are sitting on the patio overlooking Chocolate Lake. The view is stunning. The hotel has everything you need, pool, gym, in room fridge and coffee maker, and of course the lake. Would be a great place for families. There is an included breakfast which is always a nice bonus. Buffet style hot continental, nice to have more than just cereal and toast. The food was ok at best and I did find it a bit of a challenge to find something due to some food intolerances. I can not speak to the restaurants lunch and dinner offerings. The room was very clean and well maintained though the decor and furnishings are a little worn out. Staff were very friendly and as added bonus you are greeted by the hotel's resident chocolate lab.

Room Tip: Get a room with a lake view

- Friendly reception.
- The lobby area is very inviting.
- Our room had a nice view of the lake.
- The room decor is very pleasing.
- The salt water pool was nice and warm.
- We were not able to try the breakfast as we had a very early flight back to Toronto.

Would stay again on our next visit to the Maritimes.

Staff was friendly and provided quick service. The decor of our room was very pleasant and the view of chocolate lake was amazing! We were not able to eat the free breakfast because we had an early flight to Toronto but upon our exit, the reception informed us that the restaurant had the view of the chocolate lake. Would definitely stay again on our next visit to the Maritimes.

Good Day NeekonD800 and thanks for your kind words. Not only does the restaurant have a view of the lake, but it also has a patio that you can sit on and enjoy your free hot breakfast. The food and view can't be beat! We can't wait to welcome you back to Chocolate Lake.

We were very impressed with this hotel in terms of value and location. Rooms were clean. The staff were helpful. It was great to have the breakfast included. Loved the fact that the lake was there. Fitness facilities were clean and available. It was easy to get onto the major routes for sight seeing.

Excellent value (CAA/AAA rate was great) for a clean comfortable room overlooking lake. Excellent pet policy, with separate area for guests with dogs (no suites here though unfortunately). Lake area by hotel is also dog friendly, however there is a nice "people only" beach just on the other side of lake. Restaurant was lovely for dinner. The complementary breakfast buffet included excellent hot and cold choices. Kids loved the pool and lake. Just 8 minutes from downtown, 5 minutes to Bayers lake (by car). Great location.

Room Tip: if you have pets - tell them early in booking - as there is a specific area for guests with pets (up...
