Nice, cozy place. Not the fanciest around but I found the bed was comfortable, the room had good wifi and tv. Looks like it's been refurbished since the last time I stayed there a few years ago, with hardwood flooring in the room and the outside has received a nice face lift. Competitively priced and right next to what I... More

there was a mix-up with our reservation at the Hampton Inns and only rooms available were at this place. The room was dirty, smelled of smoke, no soundproofing between rooms and Wi-Fi did not work. I would recommend this if it were your absolute last resort.

I am formerly of Sydney but have been residing in Truro for the past number of years.

It had been about two years since our last trip so I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the beautiful new lobby and front desk area that has been completely redone. They have been hard at work updating... More

I can't say enough about my great experience at The Martin Arms Hotel. This Hotel used to be the Meridian, however, there has been more than just a name change in recent years. The entire hotel has been renovated! Each newly renovate room has their own brand new AC and heat pump, big screen TV, new hardwood floors and freshly... More

Our stay was short notice and we checked in very late at night- looked ok from the outside and we just wanted somewhere to lay our heads. Our stay started by walking down a dimly lit hallway that REEKED of smoke, despite the 'no smoking' signs in the hall. For 2 non smokers, this started our stay off badly. Still... More
