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

It was a very pleasant stay. We stayed in one of the bachelor suites which was right downtown Pictou. The balcony was lovely. It was nice to have the full kitchen. Wifi worked really well. Bed was very comfortable. Check in was nice, they had the incorrect dates for our reservation but it worked out fine luckily. Thank you for... More

Clean and comfortable, but the setup was a little strange (fridge and microwave in the bathroom). The inn seemed a little cluttered with cleaning supplies left out near our room, plus a coffee station set awkwardly between room doors. It was an alright experience, but there are more affordable places in town for the value.

We stayed here for one night! We were upgraded from an INN room to a suite which was nice. The room was very spacious. The sink for the bathroom was outside the bathroom beside the kitchen!!??? Towel bars would have been nice in place of the TV tables that had the towels etc. on them. The room was well supplied... More

Our family of 3 stayed in the 3rd floor suite in the main house for one night. After going up a narrow stairway we had a very large room with a king size bed, pullout couch, kitchen area, dining table and a large bathroom. It was very clean and looked new. The bed was comfortable. We had a glimpse of... More

Would not stay there if they paid me. Had confirmed reservations & received call from manager that they would not honor reservation because of typo in price. Checked price next day & same room listed for $30 more. Seems like either Dolan's or Hotel's.com would have done the right thing & honor the confirmed reservation.

My room had a huge, comforable bed, a giant whirlpool bath and an ocean view. The fridge was handy and the tv was great. Free wifi supplied gave me everything I needed for a wonderful few days. I would definitely recommend this to friends.
