We stayed at this Motel on the 27 July 2014. Let me start off with what a view. We stayed in room number 53, it had a queen and 2 single beds, all of the beds we great. The overall cleanness was great, the staff was excellent on check in and out. They have a continental breakfast that is included,... More

I booked a room with a view to the lake. I got one with a private porch and a brilliant view to the lake. Shame about the noisy air conditioning (which, amazingly, we were able to sleep through the night with it on). For less than $100, what great value it was. The breakfast room served continental breakfast, and was... More

Our first trip to this area of North America. Booked via Internet. After arriving, found that the village (pop. 900 or so) has quite a variety of lodging choices. Trailsman is okay (clean and located right on the lake) but is located around 7 or so miles from downtown Baddeck (restaurants and shopping). They do have a limited breakfast choices... More

We spent one night on our way to the " Cape". Lovely people. We had no issues with our room. Breakfast was good with fresh pastry/fruits. The owner was very friendly and really wanted us to return. Would recommend this Motel.

We spent 3 nights at the Trailsman Motel and enjoyed our stay there immensely. The staff went far beyond expectations, the rooms were clean, quiet and very comfortable. Our room overlooked the lake and there was a beautiful outdoor pool available as well. The free breakfast was outstanding and the young woman who staffs the restaurant was very professional and...

Traveled to NL for a family visit and decided to stay here before our 1145 crossing to NL. Service is good and room had no issues. TV was a small CRT. View out the back was pleasant. Grounds huge and well maintained. A few good restaurants available nearby. Check operation hours, some close early in the day even though prime... More

We were a group of 4 people (2 couples) who shared a room as we were in for a night. The room was well sized for 4 people with comfortable beds. The breakfast consists of the regular bread, jam, butter and tea/ coffee with some items from a bakery near by (Everything tastes very fresh). Due to the mosquitos we... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights while touring Cape Breton. It is actually located several miles from Baddeck before exit 8. It is near to the entrance to the Cabot Trail, but you must travel several miles to Baddeck for restaurants. The room was a good size, but really outdated, though very clean. There was no breakfast due... More

We got there a little late in the evening, originally hoping to make it out of Cape Breton Island, on our way back to Toronto. However, we decided to stay here. We got the room on the end (#52) facing the water and enjoyed the beautiful views until sunset!! Due to some renovations, there was no breakfast available, which is... More

Stared here for a couple of night while going around the Cabot Trail. This place had a nice view of the water, but the rooms were dated and just ok. Luckily they were clean! There was no included breakfast as specified due to some damage through the winter. We stayed May 22-24, 2014 and booked well in advance, so was... More
