This was a decent, clean, motel-type of building. The outdoor, heated pool was very pleasant. Our room was nicely decorated, and the bathroom was very nice. My only complaint was that the breakfast choices were largely factory-packaged and unappetizing. However, the dining room was fine, and the coffee was also good.

We finished up with our Nova Scotia motorcycle trip a little early so we stayed 2 nights here. Upon check in we requested a first floor room, Laura managed to get us on the first floor. the room was clean, beds were good, a/c worked great. Breakfast was ok. Overall a nice place to stay waiting for the ferry..

Like most users here, I rely on other peoples review, and for the most part, it's been very accurate. Thus, I want to give mine, for the first time, when it has to be known to other travelers how it really is. True, the staff is friendly. But last night 7/2x/15, arriving at around 9:30pm I was really tired and... More

Never been disappointed yet in our travels of 40+ years. We always find a Best Western nearby when we tour lighthouses along the coast - have seen 600+ in the US and now seeing the accessible ones in Canada. We like to make reservations 8-9 months in advance to contend with the locale interests like sporting events etc.

We recently stayed at this Best Western and we were greeted by friendly, accommodating staff. Our room was very clean. It was easy to get around the area, close to shopping, the ferry and the Firefighter's Museum, and Rudder's restaurant. I would stay here again.

Starting with the good: location is perfect when you are getting on the ferry for Maine, it's just a couple minutes away from the ferry terminal. Also good is the hot breakfast in the morning, nothing too fancy but makes for an easier start. Now the not so good: in general this is an older hotel, furniture/decor of the room... More

I had occasion to be in Yarmouth Nova Scotia to view some real estate. Had originally made plans to camp at Campers Haven on Highway 3 as it was convenient to the homes I was to view.
