Stayed in one of the Clansman Motel's cottages for a week recently. Had an wonderful stay; the staff was helpful and friendly, the cottage was clean and well-kept. We needed room for 4 adults and 4 small children, and the cottage easily accommodated all of us. We will return to the Clansman in the future.

We had Planned to stay in Sydney where there are lots of restaurants, beautiful harbor walk and great hotels, but....there were no rooms available due to a major school track meet. This hotel was clean and adequate. We were able to do our laundry. Better eat at this motel's restaurant since there are minimal alternatives for a good dinner in... More

A very good motel that provides great food in the little restaurant, they helped us get to some places that we had no idea to get. The service was quick but done correctly and for a motel it is more like type of Inn. I wish the pool was open. I stayed there for 2 days but still 5/5 Owls

I can appreciate trying to provide a service in a small community, This inn is in a beautiful community BUT it hasn't been updated since it was built perhaps in the 1950's. The latest renovation is laminate floors and even those are worn. I was surprised to see so many open gaps in laminate flooring. The pictures of sinks with... More

I would absolutely recommend the Clansman Motel to family and friends. Visited on the long weekend. This being a return trip, I was as pleased as my first stay a few years ago. Our room was clean and comfortable with WIFI and a flat screen TV. Service is second to none. Staff at the front desk were so friendly and... More

I would gladly recommend this place to family and friends. I traveled with my elderly mother and stayed for a week. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. I was pleased that it was so quiet even though there seemed to be a lot of vehicles in the parking lot. All of the employees that we had contact with, including... More
