    For the price I paid, the amenities were okay, but just okay. Place was fairly clean but some things could be updated, new linens being one. There were mice in my room and in the kitchen which was a little unsettling. The coffee from the cafe downstairs was great and despite the area having not a great reputation from Haligonians, I felt safe as a single female to walk into downtown Halifax. The location was pretty good, close walk from the airport bus drop off and downtown (10 mins).
