Coastal Inn, Halifax: Nice but non-central hotel
We stayed here because we were going to a wedding and got a discount given to the guests. The hotel is at the back end of a retail park/industrial park area on the outskirts of Halifax. It's handy to Highway 103 (exit 2) for the South Shore or connect to the 102 and head north towards the airport and north out of the province past that.
We had a king room which was very comfortable. They have double queens, executive suites and a honeymoon suite which, my niece (the bride) said was really nice! The room comes with breakfast which isn't too fancy but it's free. There is free wifi in the rooms and a mini fridge and microwave and Keurig coffee machine. There's a pool and a fitness centre in the hotel as well.
There are several restaurants down the road a short way for evening meals. Lots of shopping and a movie cineplex handy as well.
Doesn't seem to be an online reservation system.

Super 8: Pleasant Hotel in Dartmouth
We spent five nights in this very pleasant and newly renovated hotel on the Dartmouth side of the bay. The view of Halifax from our balcony was spectacular, and it's an easy ferry ride across to Halifax. The Dartmouth ferry terminal is just two blocks from the hotel. There are a number of modest restaurants and coffee shops right around the corner. The staff were helpful and pleasant.
Great views from rooms on the harbour side.

Holiday Inn Halifax Harbourview: Across the harbour
I stayed here many times over the years and it is a good choice if you want to be close to downtown. Its actually across the bridge from downtown Halifax making it only minutes away and is less expensive than the hotels on the other side of the harbour.
They often have specials like 'shades of summer' package andwhere every second night at half price plus complete buffet breakfast included.

Halifax West KOA: It has to be the best campground in the city!
We LOVED our stay at this KOA Kampground! It is a small campground built on a charming, natural site and it is oh so quiet! Truly the perfect place to go with kids. It is located at a very convenient distance from the city (about 20 minutes by car), there's a pool and other activities for kids (Kevin and Alex truly enjoyed the "banana peel" bikes), you can rent canoes to go on the lake, the staff is professional and friendly, you have access to private washrooms and showers, and all the facilities are super clean!
Just a word on our personal experience: when we first got to the campground, we realized there was no electricity at our site (as we had asked for) so we had to rent an extension from them. We were a bit miffed about that but I'm glad we didn't stick to that first impression because everything was great after that and when we returned the extension we got our money back. So all this to say that if I'm ever going back camping to Halifax, I'm going back to Halifax West KOA!

Hotels and accomodations: We've got everything
Halifax has most of the main hotel chains and a few independent hotels, Bed and Breakfast/Inns, a hostel or two. There are a few campgrounds on the outside of the city. I think St. Mary's University and Dalhousie may offer summer accomodations in student housing.
Sheraton Four Points
Various prices, various levels from basic to 4-5 star.

Dunolly Bed and Breakfast
They are listed on www.bbcanada.com in Halifax, but they are actually located in Dartmouth and completely mislead me about their location. NOT IN HALIFAX PROPER!
Very steep road leading up to the establishment currently under repair.
Specify what you'd like to eat to the owner or she'll make whatever she feels like figuring you'll like it.

Settle Inn: great place to hide from Juan....
This not only one of the nicest places I have ever stayed but certainly one of the friendliest too. The owners are very warm and accommodating, this is a classic Nova Scotia kind of welcome. It is their home and three rental rooms are formerly the bedrooms of their children and are named after them.
There are three rooms, two without private facilities for CAN$65, complete with TV and a sumptuous breakfast. Our room was the only ensuite and it had not only a big walk-in shower but also a jucuzzi. The king sized bed was super comfy and there was not only a TV but also a DVD player! The outside garden was lovely and breakfast was ample and varied with fresh fruits an added bonus. It was listed at CAN$95 but with Hurricane Juan coming, he made us an offer we couldn't refuse. ;) Well worth his original asking price for those who can afford it.

Sporting Mountain Resort: Scenic View in Cape Breton
On one of our recent trips to Cape Breton (Oct., 2002) things were overflowing at our daughter's house so we booked two nights accomodation at the Sporting Mountain Resort, only a few minutes drive away. This is an excellent facility run by a couple originally from Germany - they have three guest bungalows on their property high up on a hill-side overlooking the Bras d'Or Lakes. Each has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a spacious kitchen/dining room area and is also equipped with satellite TV. Photo of the living area and kitchen facilities.
Located on the out-of-the-way southern shore of the Lakes, near St. George's Channel, the location is very isolated and relaxing. There is a fairly steep road up to the site so it may require a good walk if you book during the winter season! The peak-season rate is CAD$100 per night for 2 persons.

MacLeod Inn: B&Bs and an Inn
We booked ourselves into B&Bs for the whole trip after checking out various sites on the internet and then confirming via telephone. In the summer tourist months, I prefer to take a wild stab at my itineray rather than have to hunt for a place to stay each night. All of the B&Bs were very reasonable and served up great breakfasts.
Most B&Bs were about $60-70 Canadian for two persons - the McLeod Inn was a bit pricer at $97 including taxes. We decided to treat ourselves on the final night!
Located on a picturesque wooded lot close to Inverness with a fine looking wood interior to the building. The family helped out with the breakfast preparations.

There are many nice hotels in...
There are many nice hotels in the downtown area. I would recommend any one of them. It is best to stay near the downtown when visiting Halifax because that is where all the action is. Some examples are the Westin, the Hotel Halifax, the Citadel, and the Radisson. There is also a nice hostel that is just a short walk away from the heart of downtown. It is located on Barrington Street.
