Reviewed 22 August 2016

the staff was very friendly but the hotel was tired. The room had too much furniture, could barely more around the room. Airconditioning was very loud, window shaker. At $140 a night, it was a very poor value but they know there's nowhere else in town and you can see the neglect due to the lack of competition.

My husband and I both loved this place. It was so pretty outside with all the hanging baskets. The room was beautiful. Bed was comfy. In the morning they had a wonderful breakfast and breakfast room. The staff was so nice. Loved the ladies at the front desk....so helpful and sweet.

Stayed in an efficiency unit, very clean, well designed, and nicely decorated. Very private. Super comfy bed! Breakfast was pretty decent for continental, and the staff were super friendly. Highly recommend!

We arrived in our room to notice a lot of white dog fur all through the room. Enough to make another dog. The sink water was very stinky we had to purchase water to use. The air conditioner is so old it is yellowing - they would save if they installed heat pumps. The mini fridge barely kept our things...

Stayed here 5 years ago (2011), they have since modernized the rooms. It was clean, had crisp white sheets, with a modern look and feel for the decorations. The room smelt clean. The free breakfast was above average. The staff are great and very accommodating. Some fixtures are in need of an upgrade such as door handles from the 70s....

We chose the Aurora as it was halfway along the Annapolis Valley and a perfect base for our exploration of the Bay of Fundy. It's an adequate place. Nothing fancy but has all you need to be comfortable. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a fridge and air conditioning. But it smelt a little musty and needed airing. Breakfast...

The Restaurant is slated to close by the end of June, this is a mistake, as the food was Fantastic and wait staff was a delight!! When the restaurant closes I can see an...

Thank you for your comments, particularly the compliments about our staff. I'm sorry you didn't tell us about the air conditioner while you were here, since we could have repaired or replaced the unit then and there. Just for your information, all Best Westerns are independently owned and operated, and Best Western does not require a full service dining room...

Small, but newly renovated, very clean and well-appointed room. VERY comfortable bed and pillows and top notch towels! Close to Evergreen Theatre where we attended a concert. (15 minute drive). Nice area out back for walking our little dog.
