Sadly this place has gone through a horrible down slide. It is being run by a Skelton crew who seem to have lower standards than the previous management team. A fellow guest heard the front desk staff say that they shut the heat off when it's nice outside. As he stated this he was wearing his winter jacket! The common... More

Needed a cheap room prior to a medical appointment in town when a snow storm was predicted. The room was very clean but tired. The heat had been turned down to 50 when I arrived which took some time to warm up. The pool and dining room are both closed for the immediate future. My room was not recently renovated... More

We really enjoyed our stay here recently. Loved the location, on the Tantramar Marshes. It is also close to places like Moncton, N.B., (which has the Magnetic Hill, zoo and water park), the fixed link to P.E.I., and is right on the border between N.B. and N.S. The rooms are large and very, very clean. You get a complimentary breakfast... More

Selected for proximity to highway. This property really needs serious help. Room was clean, but public areas very run down. We didn't even want to stay for morning coffee! Not recommended unless it is important to be one minute from the Transcanada entrance.

The outside could use a little tlc but the room was very clean and tasteful. I did not use the pool but I did go to the restaurant for dinner. They modified a dish to make it vegetarian for me, which I appreciate, and it was very good. Super friendly staff.

The Wandlyn is right off the main highway with easy access to Joggins, Springhill, Moncton, and of course Amherst. I am traveling with a well behaved Labrador retriever and the owners of the Wandlyn were more than willing to have us stay at their motel. The motel does look " tired" but the room was clean and the bed was... More

Pre booked, outside a little sad looking but lobby was fine and our room was awesome, very clean and well stocked, fridge,microwave,coffee machine, huge wardrobe with ironing board/iron & extra blankets, plus couch and king size bed for a very reasonable price. The breakfast that was included could've had a bit more thought put into it but over all I... More

눉Poor breakfast facilities and no hot food options. Room was cramped and dirty. An old style 32" TV took up most of the furniture it was placed on. It was dusty. An old coffee bag was still in the coffee maker. Dead flies were on the air con unit. The wiring in the room was an unsightly mess on the... More

The hotel is right by highway so location is good. The hotel needs some renovation because overall appearance is little outdated. The beds are surprisingly comfortable and I actually had a good night sleep which exceeded my expectations. Breakfast was little disappointing.

Upon going in, lobby appearance and the back entry way to our room, we thought this may be a bit sketchy place to stay. Nothing for decor in the lobby, basically a desk a few chairs and a receptionist. The lobby looked a bit run down. We were directed how to get to our room. We went back outside to... More
