We did not intend being this far past cheticamp but ended staying just one night and we are glad we did. Sure, the decor is a little dated but the rooms are impeccably clean and I found the beds very comfortable. It's really all you need in a roadside motel. The breakfast menu was excellent and well made. Recommended.

Two couples stayed one night. This motel has been there for quite a long time but is very well maintained and is in an excellent location. Comfy beds with upgraded linens. We had adjoining decks overlooking the Margaree River/Harbour bridge. Lots of interesting short drives in all three directions from this location. Get up early and drive along the Margaree... More

As other reviewers have stated, this is an older property with decor and furniture from the 60"s, which I don't mind, except the beds were rock hard and small. There is no air conditioner. Neither of us slept well and that's all we were looking for...a good night's sleep. The rooms were noisy - I could hear our neighbour snoring.... More

My wife and I we're attend Belle Cote Days and this was the only place we could get. We were skeptical at first because of the online photos and my previous knowledge of the place but we really enjoyed it. The room is dated but clean. I word of caution, there is no air conditioning. I also had the breakfast... More

First I will say I stayed here forty years ago and it was fabulous. My wife and I chose to stay there this past week and I have to say it hasn't changed much. This is not five star, there is no flat screen television or even a telephone in the room but, wifi is available. If you want clean... More

I was here during a wedding in the end of June and have to say that this place is very cute and love all the little ducks & other little stuffed animals. Now I didn't stay here as a guest but I did partake in the buffet breakfast and have to say that it was very delicious food, staff were... More

We booked this inn a week prior. Great location, above the highway, we had a nice balcony overlooking the bay. Room was small but functional. This Inn looked like it was designed more for hunters than families. No air conditioning in the room, which was our fault for not verifying, but disappointing anyway. Disappointed that breakfast was not included as... More

Older motel and lodge overlooking historic salmon river and close to many tourism attractions. Very clean and comfortable room (has been renovated) in the main lodge. Some traffic noise as the property is on the main road to Cheticamp. Restaurant overlooks the river, service there was good, breakfast adequate. Room had no air conditioner but did have a good fan...and... More

Stayed in the outer building where the rooms were older. View was pretty good. Got our own plastic chairs to sit on. Breakfast was not complimentary but there was a restaurant on site. Decent food; poorer service. Owner, Gordon, was quiet but helpful.
