We were originally supposed to stay elsewhere but those plans fell through last minute. We were able to book a room at the Midtrail Motel. From first glace, the paint colours threw me off, it looked dated but that is aesthetics only. I went to get the room key. The service wasn't rude but it wasn't overly friendly either. I... More

The motel was basic, nothing fancy, but clean. The bed and pillows weren't super comfy. The restaurant was convenient, but just ok. We were there at the end of the season and they were missing many drinks/menu items. The staff were very friendly and the location was ideal. They have wifi, which is good since there is no cell phone... More

We had decided to stop in this town, half way around the Cabot Trail. Knowing in advance there was not much choice in this very small town. We arrived in the evening and decided this was our best option for the night. The room was very basic, but comfortable enough for the night. The carpet looked like it had pet... More

Unwelcoming from the very start. Grumpy woman at checkin. Key wouldn't open the room door so was given another room. Depressing room. Windows facing the ocean dirty. Nice bath tub. Worst sleep I have had in years.

Having just 2 days to spend doing the Cabot Trail, we decided on this place (from a list we found on the Cabot Trail's website) because it was located near the northern end of the route. We made the reservation flawlessly and courteously over the phone. Doing the trail clockwise beginning at Port Hawksbury, we arrived at the hotel after... More

We stayed at the Mid Trail Motel in Room 19 - standard queen ocean view room with a little balcony off the back sliding doors. The room was a basic motel room, nothing fancy. The bed was hard, the pillows flat and the bedspread in need of replacement. However, it was inexpensive and the location is quite pretty. And the... More

This was a perfect stopover for the whale watching excursion we had booked. It was two couples and we booked rooms 11 & 12 which was like having your own private hotel. They are the only two on the top floor with a fantastic view and our balconies were connected. No going outside and into the other room to be... More

Stayed one night at the Mid Trail recently. The best part of the stay was probably the access the hotel provides to a beautiful beach just a short walk away. Also, there are some very nice views of the mountains and coast from the property. The accommodations themselves were average. Décor was minimal and linens dated. Just a very basic... More

Great spot!! Views were amazing! We stayed in a mountain view room and the view was spectacular!!!! Had breakfast onsite and was great food, great portion size and great prices. :) One suggestion is a small bar fridge in the room. A place to keep a few cold beverages or medications. Overall great experience.

We stayed here in July 2014. The location is great for touring the western side of the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton National Park and towns as far south as Cheticamp and Inverness. We found the accommodations to be slightly below average. We had a family room, which was very spacious. The bathroom and ac unit both appeared to be brand... More
