We were looking for a room in Ingonish but it was all booked up so the nice lady at the skyline referred us to this hotel. We are glad she did! Exactly what we were looking for, nothing fancy but clean,comfortable, ocean views (and sounds) and affordable!

This is a nice place in a lovely setting. One is far above the water. We were there in late September, arrived as sun set. There was no place to eat, and no information in the cabin as to where we could find a restaurant or grocery store. This meant we had to drive many miles to a little grocery... More

This motel has cute accommodations with your own little kitchenette, mini living room space. My boyfriend and I stayed here, and we found the rooms were kept very clean, and the view is just incredible. It is at the Northern tip of the island, and so close to the Oshan Whale tour, which was also really fun. There are a... More

If you're looking for the Ritz, move along. If you're looking for a very decent, simple place in a beautiful remote setting then look no further. The building faces the wrong way to see the great views the property affords, but it does give you an awesome harbor and valley view. And their lawn chairs and hiking trail provide amazing... More

I have stayed at Burton's too many times to remember since it opened in 1995 and it is getting better with age. The view, as many have said, is incomparable. All five rooms have recently been renovated - new floors, refrigerators, and satellite TV has replaced the former VHS/TV combination. But you really won't be watching TV, given the gorgeous... More

12 miles off the Cabot Trail. Very north tip of the Cape. Clean, and rooms were fine. No A/C but we didn't need it. Nice views. Chairs outside to see the sunset or sunrise. $125C with tax. 5 rooms total. Mel (GM) was always there, available, and helpful. Serves coffee in the morning but no breakfast. Nearest eatery for breakfast... More

Rooms at this motel are large, exceptionally clean and newly renovated. Location is beautiful ... overlooking the harbour and the ocean. Name says it all really. Owner, Mel is very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our chats. We would definitely recommend this motel to anyone and will certainly stay here again if destiny brings us back this way.

No picture can possibly describe the beauty of Burton's location. Perched high atop a broad grassy knoll overlooking the ocean and the village below, the experience of stepping out of your car and looking around is positively breathtaking. The large rooms are immaculate, the bed very comfortable and the windows open to allow wonderful cross ventilation and sweet ocean breezes.... More

Beautiful location overlooking the harbor in Bay St. Lawrence. The owners could not be more welcoming and helpful. Clean large rooms and music on Saturday evenings. No restaurant nearby but a local place delivers.
