I was not impressed by the plastic cutlery for breakfast, given the price being charged. Plastic knives don't even cut toast, and can shatter before the toast surrenders. The internet reception was very slow, and some sites simply did not respond. By and large it was acceptable as an overnight motel, and hopefully the Nova Star ferry will be around... More

Stayed for two nights in August 2014. Nothing short of a great stay. The room was very clean and in great working order. Very friendly and knowledgeable front desk staff. Complimentary breakfast was one of the best I've seen, as David does a great job keeping things well stocked and hot. We travel with three children and they were all... More

Our final stay in Canada for our 53rd Honeymoon. Perfect. Clean, quiet, conveniently located near restaurants open late night and the Nova Star Ferry to Portland. Great prices. Friendly hosts. The heated out-door pool was being used by a few people, and looked inviting, but we were too tired to enjoy it. Would definetly stay here again.

We stayed here for a night prior to boarding the Nova Star to Portland. Check in was a breeze, and the gal at the front desk (Amy?) was pleasant and helpful. The room was clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was dated, but everything worked and was clean. The included breakfast the next morning was well stocked,... More

A very enjoyable experience, super friendly staff, very helpful. Delicious hot breakfast is included and the room is very clean, with top quality linens and mattresses. Centrally located, close to the ferry as well as Highway's 101 and 103 for day trips to the area.

This hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included with the room and offered many choices. Best of all the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My one suggestion is that if you are taking the ferry from Maine, take advantage of the shuttle to get to the hotel-the cost is worth it as it is a bit of a... More

We were in town for a family reunion, and wound up very pleased that we chose the Best Western. It seems pretty clear that the rooms were recently updated. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. The location was great - very convenient to amenities and major roads, but not in a noisy or particularly busy area. Free... More

Perfect location along the lighthouse route while touring Southern Nova Scotia. The very caring staff at the desk pointed us to the best touring areas in Yarmouth. The lighthouse and hiking trails there are a must while visiting the area. The Captain's home walking tour of town was easy and very worth while. Amazing architecture through out the town. The...
