Ended up here because everything else was booked - I wish we had slept in the car! It was absolutely disgusting. I'm guessing our room hadn't been used in a while as a horrific musty odour was ever present. There were dead bugs EVERYWHERE including in the bath tub, all over the floor, counter tops, hanging in webs from the... More

The price was inexpensive and the room was spacious bit other than that there is nothing good to stay about this motel. The room was very dated. For instance the bathroom counter and tub fixtures looked like they had been there from the 1950's. we found a dead fly in the bathtub. Even though we had made a reservation for... More

I staid there for 2 nights as I was working in the area, Room was clean and pretty good size for a $60.00 room. A few minor things I noticed was the room needed a bit of TLC, some of the molding along the walls and floors needed repairs and there were a few spiders in the bathroom But nothing... More

Everything else was booked, and based on reviews, was dubious about staying here.But gave it a go. The bad reviews must have helped as it was clean,w/ new frig, & micro, and for my $50.00 a nt. who needs breakfast? I value quiet and clean and this was both. Wildwood Motel was filled with truckers and their rigs, smoking and... More

The Cape Cod Colony Motel had all the necessities and delivered in pricing as well at around $75.00 for sisters travelling (mostly) the perimeter of NS on a budget. The room was spacious and very clean; the beds comfy. We'd definitely stay again, if in the area.

The owner of this motel is as seedy as the motel itself. I was in nova scotia for the annual marathon. Everything was booked for miles around 2 weeks in advance. One owner said to call the guy at the Cape Cod because HE will have rooms. That should have been my first clue. I called and got a reservation.... More

Two nights ago we checked into this motel and when we went to our room it was filthy, an inch of dust everywhere and spider webs going accross the TV stand. Also, someone had written "clean me" in the dust! I returned to the desk, and was given the keys to another room. The second room appeared to be in... More

Our hockey team had booked here for a tournament assuming most of our games were in Shelburne. When we received the schedule and realized most of our games were closer to Yarmouth, we cancelled (9 days in advance when the cancellation policy was 24 hours). After our team manager received abusive emails from the owner, he still charged our credit... More
