Did not stay long. About an hour. Arrived at 3:30pm. Looking for a cup of coffee. Dinning room was closed (hours are 7-10am) the wonderful staff, insisted we let them make a new pot so we could plan the next leg of our trip. She didn't bill us for the coffee, and walked us to a private conference room to... More

The rooms are filthy. Nothing like walking on a carpet that is spotted with stains. The attendant was dishonest in telling us the place was full when it was clearly not. Two parked cats for 70 rooms said it all.

comfy beds and pillows, very quiet except for the hwy noise, even though we were furthest from the road. Only issue we had was finding it, we had the address, but coming from new brunswick, the hwy numbers went up, then went by their address, then started to go down again. look for at least mile marker 71 before you...

The motel is well maintained. Staff is awesome and room is clean. It's overlooking a beautiful lake. The problem with it is the bugs. There are a ton of this kind of biting flies and a lot of mosquitoes. Asian mosquitoes are nothing compared to what's lurking around the motel. Clean shower and covering up with sweater, caps and long... More

Right on the Trans Canada Hwy, a convenient location to stay either on or off the Newfoundland ferry (we stayed after getting off the ferry). About 30 minutes from the ferry. Room was clean and quiet (even though you're right on the highway). Breakfast is included and the food selection has something for everyone. Service at the office desk was... More

We knew we were booking in a motel but didn't realize that we wouldn't be able to sleep since the walls are paper thin! Beware! Could hear everything going on outside and in other rooms. No view of the water, everything overgrown. Breakfast did not offer anything for anyone with any kind of diet needs- so went for a lovely... More

We stayed here on the way to catch the ferry to Newfoundland. It is an older motel, but it is so charming! We had a drive-up room and when we walked in and saw the picture window and the view of the lake, we were thrilled. There was a back door with a screen door and we walked out to... More

This is a great motel which is very clean and quiet. The beds are comfortable and thw sheets crisp. Breakfast is included and consists of fresh fruit cereal toast and fruit salad. It is close to the cabot trail and the town of baddeck.

We recently spent two nights at the Trailsman Motel. We had a drive-up room, which also had a large window on the back wall facing beautiful Bras d'Or Lake. There was a back door as well, giving us access to the back lawn, chairs and picnic tables. The room was dated, but there was a mini fridge, and the beds... More

We came in for a family emergency and chose the motel as it between the hospital and family. Gail was very helpful when we checked in. Our room was a good size and was very neat and clean. We surprised to learn that breakfast was included and were treated the next morning to fruit, cereal,yogurt, and baked goods from a... More
