I was in Halifax dropping my son off at school. I didn't make a reservation, which was not a good move, and couldn't find anywhere with vacancy. I checked trip advisor and found the Berry Motel. Clean, good price, lots of room, nice service at check in.

We're about an hour's drive from Halifax, so if you can't find accommodations in the city, or if you don't want to pay high city prices, we're a great alternative. Thanks for staying with us!

This motel is a short drive from the airport, about an hour. Although it is just off the highway the rooms are quiet. There is a supermarket over the road and lots of food outletts within walking distance. Don't just stay for the night Truro is well worth a visit. We has a problem with a stain on the bed...

Hello and thanks for staying with us. I'm sorry about the stain on the sheet; every once in a while a sheet goes through the wash and dry, a stain won't come out, and it doesn't get noticed by the housekeeper who makes the bed; I'll ask them to be more attentive. A trip to the airport is about 40-50...

To look at Berrys you would think you were going back in time to the days of the single story, no frills motel. However, I would challenge any of the chains to have a cleaner room, enough towels, and a friendlier staff. The room sparkled from the carpet up. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for...

I'm happy you were satisfied with your stay. Someday we'll start renovating the outside of the motel, but in the meantime there's still lots to do inside, which matters most. Thanks and come again!

We stopped in with no reservation for one night stay on way to Lunenburg. Price was very reasonable - too good to be true. We were pleasantly surprised! The room was spacious, very clean and the gentleman that was at the counter was friendly, courteous and helpful. Especially nice to have laundry facility and close to many amenities. We would...

Hi and thanks for staying with us. I'm happy you liked your suite. While our standard rooms all have air conditioning, our suites, which are in a separate building, do not.

Room number 6 smelled musty n old. Couldn't even sleep in the bed due to all the hair in it, slept on top of the covers. The bed was very uncomfortable and hard. It maybe cheap but that was for a reason. Will never return!!!

I'm sorry you weren't happy with your room. Yes, I have to agree with you, Room 6 hasn't been renovated yet and is looking pretty old, as is the case with all three of our smoking rooms (I'm guessing that you asked for a smoking room, as there is no other way we would rent it to you unless you...

I stayed at this hotel for one night last weekend. It was clean and tidy. I can't really say anything really bad about the room or really great.

We were in a renovated room, which had tile and laminate flooring, flat screen TV, fridge, microwave, extra seating, king bed and was a nice size. A couple small changes would make it much better. There is only one available electrical outlet near the fridge, with a sign saying, "do not unplug the fridge". If people are unplugging the fridge,...

Hello and thanks for staying with us! Actually, we had to place the signs on the bar fridges because occasionally somebody would unplug a fridge because they didn't like the sound of it running while they slept. Unfortunately, this meant that the freezer compartment would defrost and water run all over the floor. If they did this at an expensive...

Berry's Motel is located near shopping centers and lots of mid-low range places to eat, which came in handy as they do not serve breakfast. Some of the rooms are remodeled and based on the decor and the price, we had one of those rooms. (Room 21) Plus side--the in-room heating/cooling unit was very efficient and heated up our room...

Hello and thanks for staying at Berry's Motel.
