When we were moving from Lower Sackville to Vancouver, there were several days we needed to stay in a hotel while the move was happening. Thanks to my Auntie Laima, I found out about the Comfort Inn located at 560 Bedford Hwy. She and my uncle stayed there when they came to visit the east coast a year ago.
It was a perfect location for us! Right between our house and Halifax, overlooking the Bedford Basin. They even have an indoor swimming pool!
Plus a cute deck for those who want to take a break outside. It was the most vacation-y place we stayed the entire time we were travelling this year. I loved it.
A very lovely modern room that thankfully had two beds since, it turns out, Reg and I can no longer seem to sleep comfortable in double beds. To avoid knees in the back, I migrated to the other bed. I called our Vancouver hotel and confirmed we had a Queen bed after this realization.
It was a lovely room but our view was of the parking lot. No big deal. We just needed a comfortable place to stay while our lives were being moved to the other side of the country. Give me quiet and TV and I am good.
The reason I wanted to write this post is this Comfort Inn had the best complimentary continental breakfast I have ever had! Hot cooked food, lots of treats you could toast up and get this! They had waffle batter ready-to-go and a waffle maker!!! I never had time to make my own but that was the coolest.
By the end of the week all our stuff was packed into a a truck and then sat on the East Coast for weeks while we stayed in a hotel on the west coast waiting for everything to arrive. Our hotel in Vancouver had no continental breakfast so we had to fend for ourselves for THREE WEEKS in a hotel.
So thank you Comfort Inn. Thank you for our sanctuary and for the amazing food that fuelled us during one of the most physically trying times of our lives. The food was amazing and you helped make us feel like we were on vacation, not in the middle of a very challenging and emotional move.
I give your hotel five out of five wooden spoons!
