Reviewed 2 January 2012

We stayed at Elect Inn for one night on our way to our final holiday destination. My husband and I asked to view the room first before making our decision to stay there. Previously we had looked at a few other hotels/motels in the area which priced higher or similar but we decided that the price and value of this met our expectation for 2 Queen beds, for my father, my baby, my husband and I. We all enjoyed a comfortable night there. The room was sufficient for our needs. There was no shampoo but they did have bars of soap in the room. We did not pay for the price of Ritz and we expected it to be clean and comfortable and it was. Beds were comfortable for us. Wi-fi worked ok. Our room was perhaps 3 doors down from the reception. It was quiet and clean.

It's now called Elect Inns and it's a total DUMP! The desk receptionist can barely understand English and when you have to repeat yourself for the 3rd time she gets an attitude and acts like your the stupid one. As for the room, FILTHY! Yellow and brown stained walls and ceiling. No cover on the light, just an exposed bulb. Cigarette burn holes through out the curtains and the 30yr old comforter. The phone provided is straight from the early 80's. The carpet is also full of stains and dirt, probably over 20yrs old as well. Dollar store art decorates the room but i found out it's really there to cover the holes in the walls and doors. The air conditioner sounds like a diesel truck. The mini fridge is strategically placed 2 inches from the head of the bed so you'll get the pleasant hum from it all night long. Looking for privacy? Think again. The walls are paper thin and some of your neighbors in the motel aren't the most respectful people. The restaurant is now an extended apartment for the new owners and the rest of their family and it's open for everyone to see from the reception area which smells of curry and body odor. Bottom line what little service we got was rude and ignorant. The room was DISCUSTING! After 3hrs we left and didn't even try and ask for a refund because i wasn't in the mood to try and talk to this fool behind the desk.

Most reviews are based on the quality of stay and are generally not driven by racist slander, which of course is likely to affect one's review of a property and result in a significant bias. Race and the quality of accommodation are mutually exclusive. Please be as objective as possible in your review next time. After being in business for over 29 years, the majority of our guests return and are always happy to provide a recommendation.

I stayed at the Anchor while on my way back to Halifax. I took a look at a couple hotels in the area and after having seen the room and the price of the Anchor, I decided to take it for a night. The person at the front desk was very nice and even helped me bring my bag into the rooms ( I walk with a cane). The room was nice and clean and the mattress was very comfortable. It was also nice that they had wi-fi so I could check my email before bed. It's too bad the person who wrote the review above didn't have such a great experience..I guess it was an off-night for them or something?

I have stayed here before and it was acceptable but not clean. This time was really bad. The bedspread stunk so bad that I had to ask for a clean one, as did the sheets look used so I had to ask for clean ones. Something was biting my ankles, carpets were DISGUSTING. I washed the walls myself just because there was so much grime on them. The ceiling is caving in the centre, spiders, etc. etc. The owner seems nice but he obviously doesn't check his rooms after the cleaner and everything needs repairs.
