I stayed at one of Dolan's properties and went to his restaurant - FAT TONY'S. He (this) business is a rip off. Both facilities were unclean with evidence of lots of rats/mice...never again. Fat Tony himself is a real treat!! he takes great pride in running down his competitors and makes no secret that he want's to see them all... More

Our previous night was spent on the ferry and we were exhausted. We Googled hotels about 1/2 hour before driving into Pictou and the lady who answered was so helpful. The room at the inn was great. Immaculate, spacious, comfortable and affordable. Thanks for the Nova Scotia hospitality! :)

We stopped at one of the Dolan properties and called the number on the door. We were told to go on in and have a look at the suite. It was lovely but a bit more than we needed. She then told us to go to one of the other properties and have a look and if we liked it... More

We need a place to sleep close to the PEI ferry. We found this very affordable option in Pictou and came in with low expectations. The owner even warned us that we had chosen to stay in the "old motel". Well, this motor inn was just fine for us. The lodging was very clean and spacious, it had a small... More

I was blown away with the clean and high end accommodation of the 144 Water Street location. The manager was so great to us ! We forgot a blanket we brought in, and she found it for us, and had it folded up and ready for us to pick up. Close to everything that Pictou has to offer. The room... More

We had stopped in Pictou in 2013, to get out of the rain, and on this trip we stayed for two nights. As we had not arranged accommodation, we called in the office of Dolan's and were greeted with a very warm welcome. We were shown to a great place and given a choice of rooms. We originally booked for... More
