Unfortunately I found this hotel disappointing. It's isolated, so food-wise, apart from breakfast, it's either a microwaved meal from the small store next to the reception, or the restaurant at the Hilton Garden Inn next door. Now the breakfast. I stayed twice in the space of 3 or 4 days. The first time the breakfast room in the lobby was too crowded, so I headed to the airport. The second time, the breakfast room was almost empty, but the remains of the departed guests' breakfasts was literally everywhere. This chaos was in full view of the General Manager's office, which had its door open. I had breakfast at the airport again. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, but the bathrooms were poorly renovated, with plaster daubed on the ceilings. The vestibules and bathrooms had all the charm of a hospital, because of lights with cold-temperature bulbs. The microwaves were clean, unlike the freestanding refrigerators with their recessed handles and door seals encrusted with grease and crumbs. In the first room the wifi was weak and the wall-mounted thermostat wasn't working (the buttons on the AC unit itself were working). In the second room the thermostat and wifi worked, but the door scraped loudly against the frame. The hotel puts a lot of effort into listing on a blackboard at the entrance all the guests with IHG OneRewards membership, along with their status. I would urge less time and effort with the board, and more time and effort with maintenance and staff training.

Bed was very comfortable! Complementary coffee in our room and mini fridge were nice to have. Shuttle to the airport was convenient and staff were friendly. Would recommend if you're looking for a place close to the airport.

We arrived by air at 0230 Hrs with no luggage because thei airline misplaced it in transit.

Holiday Inn Express staff made sure we got all the necessities to have a comfortable and night, providing toothbrushes, toothpaste, vanity kits and even deodorant and mouthwash.

Because of this our next day will be fresh and fragrant.

Thanks guys!

We stayed here with my sister who was flying out very early in the morning, and then were driving ourselves back home. This hotel charged us $10 + hst to park our car overnight while we were hotel guests. This hotel has a large lot that was half empty and there is no where else to park unless maybe if you sneak into the Hilton's lot next door. When we expressed our surprise to the front desk clerk, his only reply was that they have been charging for 13 months. Upon check out when I expressed my disappointment to the next front desk clerk, all she would say is that is what they charge. I find it interesting that their Trip Advisor listing has free parking under amenities. There is construction going on in this hotel do it gets nosey around 8 or 8:30.

I don't like to write bad reviews so I will give the good with the bad. When we first got to our room we noticed right off that the tub was very discolored and rusted. I washed it out but it was gross. We were at the hotel for 4 days and there was no offer of clean towels, garbage being emptied or additional toilet tissue. If it were just an over night stay I can understand but we were there for 4 days. Showers were cold as they seemed to quickly run out of hot water. I do have to say the breakfast was decent and the staff were nice. On the 4th day we woke up to no power. I understand this is beyond their control but still an annoyance. We paid in cash but we were not given the option to see what they were charging us for before we paid. Today upon checking our credit card we see that they charged our card for the stay as well. Of course they have no record of this so I took a picture of our receipt and we then saw all the additional charges they put on our account for noodles ($3.04+.46 tax) water ($2.00+.30) and chips ($1.74+.26 tax) which we did not use as we had lots of these items in our room. Then on top of paying double and the additional charges we were charged $29.00 from our bank as our credit card was close and their charge over drew the card. So sadly the bad has out weighed the good and we are not impressed and we will not be recommending this particular hotel in the future.

Normally I do not post disappointing experiences. However; in this case I must. The website indicated that parking was free, however; we were advised at the front desk upon arrival that an additional $50 was required because we booked through a 3rd party! Prior to this we tried calling multiple times to advise of a late arrival, no answer. Upon return to Halifax, again tried calling for pick up at the airport, again no answer. Had to wait 45 minutes for the shuttle. We were dropped off at the front door, only to be advised there was no driver to take us to the long term parking, we had to walk. It is worthy to add, the long term parking was literally a "muck hole". upon arrival and final departure, the two different clerks were less than professional, their attitudes were basically "too bad" those are the rules for the parking fees and secondly, nothing I can do about getting you to the long term parking. Very unacceptable.

In the past I've had excellent experiences with Holiday Inn Expresses but this stay was not up to their normal standards. I would not recommend staying at this hotel if other options exist.

Positives:

To start with the positives, the airport shuttle was quite nice. Even though we arrived after midnight, it was waiting at the airport and the drive was less than 10 minutes to the hotel. This was a very nice and smooth service.

Negatives:

The negatives were nearly all related to the cleanliness and maintenance of the hotel. Since we got in late, we didn't check the room closely and went immediately to bed. The first thing we noticed was that the bedding has a very strong musty smell to it (almost like it hadn't been dried properly). When we woke in the morning, we discovered that the room hasn't been well cleaned after the previous guests. There were crumbs on tables and carpet, clumps of hair in the shower, and other evidence of a poorly cleaned room. For me, a clean room is the most important feature I look for, so this completely ruined the stay for me.

We tried to use the hotel pool, but it was also in bad condition. There was visible hair and debris both on the pool deck and in the water - it looked like it had been some time since anyone had cleaned the pool. Everyone that came into the pool area had one look at the conditions and turned around - the water was not clean enough for people to want to swim in it. There was also a big hole in the side of the pool where one of the light (I think it was a light) had been. The light itself was resting on the pool deck (with cones around it) but still seemed to be wired to the pool. I would have been a lot happier had the pool just had a "CLOSED" sign on it than the dirty, broken down mess that they left open.

Overall, I would not book this hotel again as it falls well below the Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express standards.

We checked into the YHZ Holiday Inn Express, and as we found our room, the carpeted hallway was absolutely filthy. Once in our room, there were no towels, facecloths, etc - and the bathroom floor was dirty from the previous guests, hair on the floor, etc. I called the front desk to let them know that perhaps we checked in 'during' our room being housekept, and gave them an opportunity to refill towels and clean the bathroom floor. Housekeeping gave us towels for 2 (even with 4 on the reservation), and did not clean the floor. We wore shoes the whole time. Our teens used the pool, but there were "pool parts" on the pool deck as there was a repair needing done, and the pool floor was peeling - it was gross. We travel through YHZ often and this hotel will not be on our list to stay at in the future.

I stayed at the hotel to catch an early flight to go to my home province for Christmas. The staff were wonderful! Upon arrival at check-in they asked if I was hungry and I was offered a flyer for a local restaurant that was still delivering. The room was modern and clean with nice amenities. The check-in and check-out process was fast and easy. I really appreciated being able to leave my vehicle there for the week while I was away, and the shuttle bus to the airport was punctual with a very pleasant driver. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Halifax - Bedford is a beautiful and airy hotel. The interior of the hotel is luxurious and comfortable. The room is quite a spacious area suitable for all family trips, couples, and friends. The hotel is located near the central area, very convenient for moving to the shopping and entertainment centers. You only need to spend about 10-15 minutes to go to places like Halifax Shopping Center, Casino Nova Scotia Halifax, Halifax City Hall, Bedford Place Mall, Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, etc. And located next to many markets and restaurants like Tim Hortons, Sobeys, Swiss Chalet, Little Caesars Pizza, etc.
The hotel also has an indoor pool, gym, parking lot, wifi, and event and meeting areas. Especially, I am very satisfied with the restaurant's free breakfast with European style food. The staff here are very friendly, helpful and sociable who was so patient with all types of different customers.
