Good location, wonderful to be beside the lake, inadequate parking, building needing attention. The bathroom ventilation system doesn't work, and the hair dryer in our room didn't work. We politely asked for it to be fixed, but nothing happened. They were kind enough to give us a 10% discount because of that, which helped somewhat. Love the location and the breakfast was very good. Not sure I'd stay here again next time I'm visiting family.

Hotel was great. Location is close to many shopping and entertainment sectors. Rooms are very nice. Breakfast had a great variety and very good. We had a great view of the lake from our room. Hotel was packed because of a wedding but we were still able to find a parking spot. Very nice because we don't need to pay for parking. Only issue we had was pool was a little cold.

I am totally impressed with the quality and standards of service at the Chocolate Lake Hotel, Halifax NS. The location is close to all amenities and the lake view is captivating. Feels like a resort location rather than a downtown hotel. Great experience !!!!

Excellent choice in a convenient location! The room was clean and quiet. Only took minutes to get to anywhere in the city! Though there was a wedding reception happening in the hotel, it was still very quiet and peaceful. Limited parking available so may need to walk a bit to your room, but that was okay for us. Beautiful view of the little lake as well! The free breakfast was also delicious! Will be back for sure!

I stay here quite a lot, mostly because I'm usually staying with my boys, and it's nice to have breakfast included. Breakfast is very good here, enough options for everybody. The pool is good, the hottub is always in good working order (not always the case with a lot of hotels), there is a self-use laundry in the building also, which is also nice for families with kids. The workout room is smaller than I would like (I do hiit workouts and require a little bit more room), but it's adequate. M... Read more

Very nice, inexpensive hotel! Close enough to downtown Halifax to easily drive within 5 - 7 minutes. Had a rental car, so distance was not a problem. If you don't rent a car, a taxi ride doesn't cost very much. Very friendly staff, breakfast was good and plentiful. Room very clean with a comfortable bed and very pleasant décor. Overall, good value for your money. Would stay there again if I were ever in Halifax again.

Did not have a successful visit to this hotel. Two of the reasons we stayed there was because there is a restaurant on site and they serve a HOT breakfast. When we checked in we were told the restaurant was closed for renovations and there would NOT be a hot breakfast the next morning. We had all intentions of having a nice meal on site so that we didn't have to go downtown for dinner. We checked into our suite. The bedroom area was fine but the living area was very tiny.

We stayed at this hotel at end of a cross-country trip, and I can honestly that the hotel exceeded our expectations. Even though there was a slight problem with our booking (we had booked a pet-friendly room, through a third-party site, they couldn't find any record of it. However, they managed to put us into a better room, and saved the day! The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and the hot breakfast is awesome. On-site parking is a big tight if the hotel is full.

Lovely setting, well kept hotel with most amenities. Attentive staff. Bus into the city at the curb. Normally we would select a place in the city core.This hotel's price point and setting made it worth driving into Halifax and paying the, not too bad, parking rates. Upon our return to the hotel we enjoyed the resort like quality or BW Chocolate Lake. Will for sure stay here next time we get to lovely Halifax.

We were fortunate enough to be able to combine business with pleasure during our recent trip to Halifax. As we were wrapping our stay up at this property attending a wedding that was taking place there, the property honoured their group rates fro us which was a very pleasant surprise. The only small glitch that occurred was that the ventilation fan was being replaced over the stove in the kitchen on the Tuesday evening that we arrived.

I really think that the Chocolate Lake Hotel is a gem ‚?? not perfect, but a gem nonetheless. The resident Chocolate Lab dog, Cocoa, now 10 years old, is a big part of my affection for this hotel, but then I am a dog lover. For those who like to keep dogs at a distance, I can say only that this dog will not bother you in any way. She delights in greeting people, but seems to know when her presence is not appreciated. Decor is, of course, on a theme of chocolate, so brown and earth tones pred... Read more

Extremely awful and unprofessional check-in experience by Matt made for a awful experience and what was supposed to be a nice get away an awful memory.

By 'Best', I mean 'the best' as the brand name suggest for this BW hotel tucked away in Halifax. Friendly staff, great rooms and a great restaurant to boot with the best ever scrumptious chocolate fudge cheesecake that takes the name from the hotel's location of 'chocolate lake' it was well worth the stay or a weekend break. Travel to down town is a 45 minute walk or a short drive with plenty of parking and lots to see in the city of Halifax

My overall rating is due to a very small bathroom in what otherwise is a good sized king br. Virtually no counter space and no shelves under the counter so many bathroom necessities and clothing you bring with you have to be placed on the toilet or the floor. The room was clean other than a large stain on the carpet. The TV remote won't allow you to enter a channel #, you have to scroll through the entire list to get the one you want.

We stayed twice at this hotel. On the first night of our vacation and the last night. My husband is a platinum member of Best Western and on both nights they put us street side. No perks there! The last evening we had an early morning flight and were woken up by someone's radio a 4 a.m. and again at 4:30 a.m. by the garbage truck. However the rooms were clean and large. The breakfast was good but the area is narrow and people enter from every which way so lots of bumping around.

We stayed for five nights and the room was a good size with a powerful A/C unit (found it hard to keep a stable temperature). The playpen we requested was already set up for us which we appreciated.

Very disappointed with our room. My husband booked a lake view 4 months in advance. We were put in a room facing the parking lot???? This was my bucket list trip and I doubt we will ever get back to the Maritimes. The bathroom was really small, no room to put anything. The carpet was stained and had ripples in it.

I am not a picky traveller. I will eat almost anything, I don't care about the fluffy towels or smell of soap, or whether someone was not particularly friendly at the front desk. But I have to say the Best Western Chocolate Lake sets the bar pretty low. Pros: Nice firm bed, soft pillows, great duvet, nice kitchen facility in room Cons: Queen room is like you are staying in hospital - sparse, could, very small. The only place to relax is the bed. Fitness room is sad with one decent machine... Read more

We chose this hotel for 3 reasons, location, Cocoa the dog and the pool. When we got there, we were informed that Cocoa retired the day before. I wish the best retirement for Cocoa! We were also told that the pool was closed for renovations - I was a bit disappointed. Other that those 2 issues, this is a great hotel. The staff are kind and professional. Breakfast was ok, the food wasn't replenished often, but there was always a lot of variety. Would I stay there again? Absolutely!

Good service, quiet, near the lake, very beautiful view. Good food and good service at the restaurant during lunch. The staff is very nice and helpful, weither it's questions about the stay or about the town. Needs more choice of food for the breakfast, and a bit tasteless.

My husband & i stayed here for vacation in july; the hotel is nice but somewhat complicated to get to, parking is limited, and we had issues with noisy neighbors. Want a good nights sleep? Good luck. Want ice from ice machine? Good luck. I will say, the breakfast is pretty good though. Avaliable at an early time and lots of variety. Also, bonus, there is a subway right next door for a quick lunch or dinner. But still, if u try to call the front desk to tell them about the noise out in th... Read more

The location was perfect for us; our room was large and clean - a basic hotel room but great size (417 top floor of smaller wing). Staff were very friendly and helpful; breakfast was exactly the same every day so we only did that twice since we were there for a week. It is free and there are options so you can make it work; but not ideal. Decor is a bit dated; common areas so-so; but for the money it was good value and the location is great.

Very clean, up-to-date hotel with a beautiful view of the lake. The included breakfast is delicious. Free parking also makes it a good choice for Halifax. In the past I've stayed there with a pet and the staff were very welcoming.

We stayed at Chocolate Lake Best Western for two nights during our visit to Halifax. We chose it for it's free parking (which most Halifax hotels don't have), and great lake view. Our room was clean but quite small. We really enjoyed the included breakfast overlooking Chocolate Lake. Overall, would recommend for people wanting a good hotel but also not wanting to pay downtown Halifax prices.

The hotel is beautiful, the staff is great and the complimentary breakfast was delicious! I ate more croissants than I will admit! Last was there in December but will be heading back to Halifax in September and will definitely be staying here.

Outstanding renovated rooms, outstanding views from the rooms and the restaurant -- difficult to park if you return at night This hotel is in Halifax and near major highways. It books up in season and it becomes difficult to extend your stay.

Pet friendly so be prepared to share area outside with dogs. Beautiful retreat like setting on the edge of Halifax. Good value breakfast, simple but decent, would have preferred bacon one day instead of sausage patties both days. Friendly staff. Some inconsiderate noisy wedding guests were the only issue but not hotel's fault.

Stayed here for 5 days in July and found everything about the place welcoming.The staff were very friendly and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing.They have a tradition of a chocolate Lab who is getting a little old but very friendly and usually hangs out around the lobby area.The buffat breakfast was the best selection I have ever seen in this setting and once again the staff were great.We had view of the lake but you can walk around the grounds or jump in the lake for a swim.They also...

Good, clean room with a lovely view of Chocolate Lake. Great breakfast choices included. Staff friendly and helpful. Pet friendly, only one complaint was due to our pet we were relegated to a certain area of the hotel for our room choice. This resulted in us having to do some stairs to access our room. We had a fair amount of luggage so we used the trolley to take our luggage from the front door and were stunned to find that we had to unload everything and haul that down stairs and then...

This hotel is located a short cab ride from downtown in a nice little neighbourhood with a view of the nearby lake. This hotel was great on every account. Even though there were two weddings going on there, it wasn't too loud, and we were able to find convenient parking. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the chocolate lab that hands out by reception was adorable. The rooms are well appointed and clean. This isn't a luxury hotel, but it's the next best thing and you ... Read more

Loved it. Our second visit. Nice restaurant, nice patio. The breakfast was nothing special. Powdered eggs 4 day in a row was way too much for us. Bathroom supplies were scare. I had to phone the front desk for a shower cap, then they told me I have to down and get it from them.

I travel about 3 weeks a month for work and stay in many, many hotels. This Best Western is very nice and the original room they gave me was top third of all Best Westerns. What happened the 1st morning of my 3 day stay is why I have given them such a poor rating. I was working in my room and the maid knocked to service it - although I had a do not disturb sign. I said "no need" today I am fine. She said that they have me checking out today. I went to the front desk and showed them my email co... Read more

We enjoyed our stay here. It was clean and comfortable. The price included a hot breakfast with lots of choices. We also had lunch and dinner at the restaurant and found the food to be very good. The lake view is beautiful. We found the pool a little on the cold side and the hot tub a little too hot but it might just have been us. We would definitely stay here again.

I like Best Westerns, and this one did not change that one bit. Right on the lake, yes you can swim, and clean rooms with loads of amenities. Pool/hot tub/arcade/breakfast we did it all. The really great part was the proximity to downtown, so easy to get to with a very short drive. Price was right as well. Loved the old fashioned pinball machines and photo booth! Only downside, very busy with wedding - parking all gone by time we got to hotel a few nights, and breakfast lines HUGE. We en... Read more

We stayed one night at this hotel and were very pleased with how clean it was. So many hotels have grime around the bathroom baseboards......not the case here. The bed was comfortable and as an added bonus, the window opened allowing us to have fresh air overnight. We needed to open the window as the room had been sprayed with some sort of scent that we found unpleasant. There was coffee making equipment and a mini fridge. The hotel is located in a residential area next to a well used lake. ... Read more

Second time I book this hotel and they mix up the dates. This time was the Kicker as had just arrived from a 12hr drive fro Ottawa. They offered me a room as everything else in the city was book but then realized that I had no shower and was addressed to shower in the pool area. Last time I stay here and I don't recommend that you do either.

Checking into this hotel is kind of odd to be honest. There are no temporary spots for people to be able to pull into so when the front lot is full you have to park somewhere else and walk to the lobby. If you were to park at the actual entrance you would be blocking the lane for everyone. I'm surprised the fire department hasn't done anything about it. We had a great view of the lake but it felt like we were staying in a drive-up motor lodge instead of a Best Western Plus. Maybe if you get... Read more

The hotel isn't too close to the riverwalk but is on a lovely lake. It earns the Plus designation. The restaurant breakfast, included, was very good and the dinner menu also good. Sauteed haddock was excellent.

We try to stay at the best Western Hotels as they are consistent in service and amenities. Chocolate Lake Hotel in Halifax, Nova Scotia was therefore no surprise in its welcome, décore and amenities. What I do suggest is that they amend their directions to the hotel and add that at the bottom of the 0 Exit they say stay to the right at the T-junction which becomes Joseph Howe Road, no street signs could be seen. Continue to the Armdale Rotary and take the first on right. Eventually after muc... Read more
