Great view (ocean), decent room, seconds away from the beach, fantastic chefs at the restaurant ( we were so impressed). They tended to take longer to bring us food, but it was totally worth it!! No phones or cell phone service - but that's what we needed! The wifi worked well at the restaurant.. Not so much in our room(... More

We arrived at MidTrail Motel late July 1st. Upon checking in, we were met with the sights and smells of fresh lobster dinner! Right away, we checked in and ordered some lobster dinners and chowder. The restaurant was scheduled to close but the staff were happy to stay open to feed us late travellers :) The lobster dinner was amazing!... More

We stayed here in 2013 and thought it was great. Beautiful spot. The food was very good and we would certainly stay here again. The only downside was the beds but they were replaced so I guess there is no downside. Our family of four stayed in a family room and there was plenty of room, great view.

The MidTrail Motel is in a perfect location for those who wish to take their time exploring the Cabot Trail (and there aren't many other choices!) While dated, I will say that the room and bathroom were clean. The unit a/c (needed when we were there in early July!) was LOUD. Also, the breakfast in the dining room was only... More

Clean, friendly and a nice view of the ocean from the room. Bathroom looked up graded, There was not a coffee pot or kettle to have tea or coffee in the am. It was good for a over night stay . There' a older tv in room but it worked well.

This is an older facility that has had some upgrades, but still comes across as very dated. The rooms, however, are large and clean. Our room did smell very stale, but after airing it out a bit was ok. The bath appeared to have been upgraded recently and had a nice tub/shower and sink. The queen bed was very comfortable.... More

We spent 3 nights at Midtrail and I wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was very clean, spacious and overlooking the ocean! I'm a very picky eater and gluten-free aficionado. The food at the restaurant was excellent - fresh and made with love (at least for me). The waitresses at the restaurant were very friendly and accomodating. Catherine... More

Our room was large and very clean. . The bed was very comfy. We had a great view but was too windy and cool to sit outside. We had dinner in the dining room which was not bad but the service was very slow and they weren't very busy. I thought they had gone to catch our fish!

This property has an amazing rocky beach! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food in the little restaurant was also very good. There are not any phones in the rooms but they do have a phone for public use and they also have long distance phone cards you can purchase. This property has lots of green grass area to... More

The hotel is dated but the rooms are spacious and fairly clean. The shower was a hit after dealing with a low pressure shower earlier in the trip. We were upgraded to an ocean view family room for the same price as for the mountain view room. The motel has a restaurant area but we didn’t try it as we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in between the mountains of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and overlooking the sea, Pleasant Bay & the Midtrail showcase some of the best scenery that the Cabot Trail has to offer. All rooms are fully renovated and the restaurant serves a great selection of tasty dishes including Lobster, Mussels, Snow Crab & Scallops as well as a variety of other choices to accommodate most preferences. World class whale watching is just a short walk away and the hill behind the restaurant or the private beach below serve as amazing places to take in the incredible sunsets as they dip into the sea each night. ... more   less
