Having read mixed reviews we were cautious. This hotel must have undergone new management or a reconstructive make-over, or both! We stayed in many hotel between Atlanta and Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and this was certainly one of the best. The room, and more importantly the bathroom were very clean. The morning breakfast was outstanding every morning as well.... More

Marginal facility. Formerly Quality Inn. Nice amenities but poor maintenance. Breaker to bathroom outlet tripped and clerk immediately knew what the problem was. Why not get it fixed? Tub drain was broken so tub would not drain. Wifi was good and solid. Breakfast served in hotel restaurant so there was plenty of room and real places and silverware. Tasty and... More

Got a little sidetracked in Sydney, Nova Scotia and decided to grab the closest motel/hotel and checked out our onboard GPS and we were informed that a Quality Inn was close at hand so we decided to go there. Only it turned out to have been sold and the new name was Hearthstone Inn Sydney. Our first impression was that... More

The service was good however rooms were needing updating. After 20 attempts we finally got key card to open door. This happened with each entry to room. TV had poor reception and worked intermittently. Carpet was awful and dirty looking. We wouldn't take our shoes off. Bathroom was worst part. Tub was obviously not cleaned from last occupant.

We stayed here for 3 days in latter June and early July. Nice rooms...nice staff. No complaints there BUT, after all my years staying in hotels that offer breakfasts in the rate, this is the ONLY place where the beverages are NOT included. We had to pay for coffee!!!! I could not believe it! As far as I am concerned,... More

Excellent staff were there to help out with even the simplest of questions. Would have avoided the pool even if there was time to visit it. However, clean room and simple layout with breakfast that was served quick and made it worth the stay for the semi-reasonable price.
