We stayed here in Sept. The room was SO clean and the bed was SO comfortable. Janet at the Front Desk was very nice & helpful. This was our first trip to Nova Scotia and our first night in Truro. The room had a microwave, fridge, coffee & tea and the continental breakfast in the morning had a plentiful selection.... More

They are currently renovating. We stayed in a lovely, large renovated room with two televisions. I would definitely stay here again. The staff were very friendly and the complimentary breakfast was lovely, with plenty of options.

I just came back from a road trip of Nova Scotia and PEI, and stayed at several different motels; Willow Bend was the last one. Given what I'd experienced on other nights, I was expecting a clean, no-frills motel that was somewhat stuck in the 1970s-1980s, decor-wise. I was quite surprised by Willow Bend! I read that it's a second-generation... More

Recently stayed here on vacation room 105. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is very niceley done(remodeled). They have a nice kitchenette in the room as you walk in, refridgerator, dvd player, microwave, coffee maker. So here is the bad...the carpet needs replacing(dated,worn), the shower curtain in the bathroom smells. It seems like the owners update their property as... More

This was a pretty nice motel. I was surprised at first because it was an old-fashioned drive up which could have been a rat trap. But it wasn't. The room was clean and neat and pretty spacious. We heard what we thought would be the beginning of an all night party that did not materialize, just some folks having fun.... More

Tired of the chain motels, we decided to stay here. We're glad we did. This hotel is among the cleanest I've seen in some time. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and included separate living room and sleeping area. The beds were very comfortable. The shower was good and the breakfast was very good... More

We stayed in one of the suite rooms - had a nice seating area away from the bedroom with lots of space to spread out. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The reception area is welcoming - as were the staff. There is a mill next door that worked until maybe 9 PM - so the occasional "banging" we heard... More

This was a great find for 2 couples after a long ride from PEI because we could not find a room anywhere. The evening manager was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. The room was very clean and motel functional. We were away from the main road and did not hear any traffic noise. The grounds around the... More

We stayed at the Willow Bend on September 1 for one night. We were in the deluxe king w/jetted tub - room #105. Price $105+tax per night. The motel is right on the main road, so if you are bothered by road noise, best stay somewhere else. The room was quite spacious and reasonably well kept. The bed was comfortable... More

This is a little gem in an otherwise forgettable town. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are nicely renovated, clean and comfortable and its location is good. Recommend very highly.
