Reviewed 13 April 2014

Had a wonderful stay at the New Minas Slumber Inn. Very clean, updated, comfortable bed in a spacious room. It has a newer style larger shower...we seldom ever use a tub so having a tub is not that important to us. Great to see Shampoo, conditioner & Soap dispensers in shower & sink area...being environmentally conscious! We were there on a Saturday evening...quiet time after 11pm was recognized and appreciated. We did not have the continental Breakfast but it looked great...we had a breakfast appointment later with friends. We would stay here again.

We stayed one night in this hotel. The rooms were ok, kind of small and only a shower in the bathroom for the price (over $100), however, when we turned off the television to go to sleep, you could hear EVERYTHING that was going on in the next room and the room on top of our room. We were on the bottom floor. The two men that were in the next room weren't talking loud, but the walls are so thin that it sounded like they were in our room. It wasn't even muffled, you could make ourtevery word! We didn't go to the front desk as we didn't want to repack all of our stuff and go to another room, which probably would have been just as bad. Finally the people went to sleep, but got up and turned on their TV and started talking again at 5:30 a.m. My husband told the person on the desk when we checked out how loud it was and he said "oh yeah, we get that all the time"! Really? If that is the case and you're not going to fix the problem at least leave an empty room between guests. I'm sure we still would have heard everything going on beside us and upstairs, but it may have been muffled enough for us to get a good nights sleep.

The manager didn't offer any discount for the room at all...... Do not stay at this hotel!

Room Tip: no good room at this hotel

Room had a stale smell even before the hockey gear got into it.Two very small beds for three people adds up to be a very uncomfortable sleep,could not get the room temp regulated, no extra cots,breakfast is included but all cold nothing hot.Staff was not very friendly.Overall SUCKS even for the rate charged. :(

While the rooms are clean, they only offer single beds in their 'double' rooms. We travel to Kentville at least once a year for hockey tournaments and due to some unforeseen circumstances could not stay at our normal hotel. Kentville is quite small and this was our only other option. The staff were rude, especially the front desk clerk, and were not helpful in accommodating our team or family members - were even less impressed when we asked for a cot for our room.

Location was convenient. The quietest hotel ever, probably thanks to the sign outside each door stating the hours for the noise policy. It wasn't worth the walk to get the continental breakfast. This needs to be improved or dropped from the list of amenities.

grab a room here asap when you arrive - whether it be dropping off a student family member in the area or whether you are vacationing. you can't go wrong with 'the slumber inn'. it isclean, reasonably priced and it is the only show in town. i would have expected more than just b&b's in a town housing a university of ACADIA'S stature. but low and behold, this place is IT!!! the staff are very accommodating and helpful. the rooms are indeed clean and the location is right by the highway. even though there is little competition for tourist dollars, this establishment does a great job of looking after the traveller. no worries other than room availability. book ahead if possible to ensure you have lodging, there isn't a great deal of choice in and around wolfville. if you can secure your room here you will be satisfied. but don't leave lodging in this area to chance if you are travelling in busy season, as again there is little choice. but i got a great night's sleep and was completely satisfied staying here at the slumber inn. we arrived in the off season and were fortunate that tourism was light when we visited and acquiring our night's room wasn't a problem.

Room Tip: be sure and enquire ahead to ensure your place as hotels in the area are near non existent.

The Slumber Inn had very clean rooms with super comfortable beds. However, the towels were a bit thin and small. The breakfast was very good with choices of baked goods, cereals, yoghurt and great coffee. The hotel has a night time quiet policy as well. But the best thing about this hotel was the honesty of the people working there.
We were in the area for a family funeral. My cousin's family was staying another night at the hotel, but we left right from the service. When my cousin returned to the hotel, one of the staff members approached her and said that someone in her party had forgotten something. She handed my iPad to my cousin. Now this was an unlocked, no password iPad that I had had for only about two months. I don't know who the staff member or members were who were responsible for finding and returning it, but I am extremely grateful.
