I checked in with my two young children and was met with a horrible cigarette smoke odor upon entering our room. I ended up picking up a plug-in air freshener to try to bear the stench as we had to stay for three nights for a family wedding in town. Each time we were in the room (which was as... More

Dirtiest room we have ever stayed in. We have seven images to validate this rating. This facility is known by the locals as poorly managed. Requested accommodations on the first floor and received the large subfloor room. Never again!

I think so many of the bad reviews are people looking for a room at The Algonquin across the bay in St Andrews. Our room was clean, with hardwood floors throughout. We stayed for a week and would stay again in a heartbeat. If you're looking for a big city experience with someone on duty 24/7 there's Saint John or... More

This is not the worst motel I've ever stayed in, but certainly not the best. The view from the balcony was great, but like most said, was pretty much the only good part about our room. The entire motel is very outdated, but that could be overlooked if not for the dinginess. The carpet looked to be dirty and the... More

Have stayed here before so knew exactly what to expect. You must keep in mind it's the only hotel in town. Had a bit of reservation mix up so if booking in advance I strongly suggest you get it in an email if possible. Room wise it's all about location this place has great view ocean. I suggest room #...

I have stayed at the Motel East in the past, the first time years ago when the rooms were freshly done. In the intervening years, not much changed but I could always rely on having a clean room. I haven't traveled that way for many years, and I recently booked two rooms for myself and friends. We were all astounded... More

I wish I could give 0 points. We arrived late at night and were so tired. Checkin was closed, found our key in the mailbox. First impression: huge room, poorly and old interior with an old smokey smell. Without a close alternate there we decided to stay for the night. My kids and my husband slept very fast. But not...

About the only thing positive was the view of the water out the window. The room is outdated with a small TV that was a long way from the bed so you could hardly see it. The big thing was it was COLD! There was an old portable room heater which you plug in. I moved it as close to... More

The reviews were misleading to say the least! Very poor for a high price. Just old and rundown. No coffee in room, but cups and such. Carpet was dirty and chairs were old. Had a nice dinner at the Happy Crab down the street.

Well, we arrived and found no other accommodation so went for this motel as it seemed to have a lovely view. It turned out that that was the only positive. We were overcharged but that was sorted eventually. The décor was miserable and dated and the worst thing was the smell of stale cigarette smoke (I have been a smoker... More
