    Good

    I thought that the main lobby that lead to the elevators had to be the dirtest I have ever seen at any hotel. I am involved in the tourist and hospitality industry of Nova Scotia and based on how dirty that was, I was turned off completely. Did not give a good impression of the hotel, my room was clean, but it did make me think twice about how clean the hotel really would be. Lack of parking was an issue as well.

    Booked.net is a rip off, you say Best Price Guaranteed. Was charge $184.00 no breakfast. When you can get a room for $114.00 w/breakfast. Same room.

    Superb

    Loved the location of the hotel and the friendliness of the hotel staff.

    The staff at the restaurant. We had to wail for our order to be taken because there seemed to be some confusion in the restaurant. Lots of people were being turned around because they were expecting a tour bus, however, I did not think they were being very professional. The food however was great. The next day for breakfast, after being rudely told to take a seat wherever I could find a clean table, we decided not to stay for breakfast. Too bad, because the hotel staff were very nice and helpful.

    location

    A/C was not working, only 1 elevator working and without A/C. Air control in room did not work. Restaurant is one of the worst meals we have ever had in our life, and we were not the only ones complaining. I heard people at other tables complaining and sending food back. I would definitely not be returning. As a matter of fact, this experience has probably turned me off the Holiday Inn altogether for some time I'm sure. It was one of their busiest weekends because they also had Bike Fest there on the weekend we showed up. So only one elevator and no A/C, I would have thought they would have worked on those 2 things before their big weekend.

    Nothing The carpet was disgusting.It was so stained.Should have been changed with the reno. It took at least 3 flushes to flush a kleenex.down the toilet. Not saving much water on that low flushing toilet system.The ac wasn't the best. I suffer from anxiety disorder.As soon as I entered the room my anxiety started.We were suppose to stay for the weekend,but left on Saturday. We usually stay at the Cambridge,but it was booked due to the Harley Rally.I Thought since the Hi was the same rate,we would be getting the same type of set up.It was nothing like or near the Cambridge quality. I would not recommend anyone stay there.It was one step up from a dive as far as I am concerned. BTW,the gave us a whopping $30 off the price of the room,which amounted to the taxes. We are very down to earth people and saved for this vacation.We were very,very disappointed.

    Good

    Staff were friendly and the room was clean, although there was a layer of dust over everything fom the construction that was taking place.

    Waited up to 10 minutes at a time for the elevator (I was on the 8th floor) as only one elevator was working and often when it arrived, it was full of teh work crew, boxes, etc. The stair well was also being painted at the same time, so was not accessible.

    Fabulous

    The room we stayed was updated - flat screen tv, refrigerator, microwave, new furnishings, draperies, etc. We had a harbour view which was really nice.

    We stayed on a weekend and the Pub just off the lobby was very loud. Also, we travelled with a group of friends/family and they were not as fortunate with rooms - they were not in the upgraded/renovated guest rooms - they had old furniture, no refrigerator or microwave and an ancient tv. Would not have been happy with this accommodation myself - for the price; after all it was the Delta not the Super 8.

    Very good

    The beds were very comfortable.

    The price! It was expensive and no breakfast offered....not even a light breakfast. Apparently, had we booked directly through the hotel itself, we would have gotten a government rate (my husband is military), and breakfast for two would have been included. I did not know this when I booked on-line. We were in Sydney to attend a funeral and were there for one night (actually at the hotel for less than 12 hours), and we payed $160.00.

    Exceptional

    Overall the experience was good.

    The only thing that stood out was that the hair dryer cord was only approx 1 foot long. It made it very inconvenient to blow dry hair. You had to be hunched over and it was very uncomfortable. This was in room 315.
