We stayed in Truro just for 1 night, and for this purpose the rainbow motel is ideal. Nearby the center, clean, friendly, fair price and we'll equipped. Won't forget to mention the hundreds of up-to-date blue ray dvds to watch for free! Would definitely come back again!

Thank you for writing a review of our motel. It is always nice to hear from a satisfied guest, especially when they mention the details that they appreciate, such as the PS3's and the library of free games and Blu-ray movies. Even with hundreds of satellite channels to watch, there are still times when there is nothing new or good... More

Felt so comfortable the first stay that we stayed there on our return leg of touring Nova Scotia and PEI. Service was excellent. We got a room with brand new pillow top mattresses; very comfortable. The rooms are clean and amenities are excellent; they have real glasses. I stayed at at a 4 Points Sheraton in August and they use... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our motel. It's nice to hear that your stay was comfortable. This year has not been the best for weather, but on the hot days the pool is certainly an attractive option. I hope that the rest of your trip was safe and enjoyable.

We called 10 mins to Midnight and were about 20min drive away. The owner waited for us to get a room but not only did he do this he made sure everything was in perfect order and took the time to explain without rushing to leave and made sure my family was comfortable before leaving. I recommend this place to... More

At first glance the room seemed nice enough. Went to turn the ac on.The drapes covered the ac so had to leave them open. View out the window a alley that people could go & see in room. The ac was noisy. The window at the front same problem. Have to leave drapes open to parking lot. It could do... More

Than you for taking the time to write a review of our motel. I am sorry that your experience was not positive.

Our experience was totally positive. We phoned earlier in the day for two rooms with two beds each. Robert was a friendly, helpful, gracious host. Room with kitchenette and 2 double beds quite clean, comfortable and a bargain for$79 plus tax. Great DVD selection of new releases. Lovely pool. A very nice facility.

I booked the day before, and was able to get a room that fit the criteria that we were looking for. (Non Smoking - Queen Bed) I let them know that we would be arriving later in the early evening rather early in the day. When we were going to be even later than anticipated I called to let them...

We recently stayed at the Rainbow Motel and had a really nice experience. For $75 we got a queen sized bed, large flat screen TV, PS3 gaming unit, and all the other amenities a Motel provides. In addition, there is an outside, in ground pool (cleaned daily) which was a welcomed relief from the heat! The Motel is centrally located... More

Thank you for writing a review of our small motel. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, including the movie and game selections that we offer.

We were looking for a basic motel for a night before driving to Sydney for the ferry to NFLD. Robert was very friendly and helpful. This is not the Holiday Inn, but for $75 it was all we needed as we had driven 10hrs that day from Quebec city and just needed a place to stay. Robert also recommended Murphy's... More

As I'm laying here in one of these beds, I'm very upset to say that i am wide awake a half hour after midnight and have yet to get any sleep, and probably won't. We have just experienced our SECOND encounter with a MOUSE. I do not feel comfortable staying in this room.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. In spite of our best efforts in almost 40 years in the business, occasionally one of these critters will come into a room unnoticed, and as soon as we know this the problem is immediately remedied. Whenever I register a guest, I always give them my phone extension and tell... More
