One of the best motels I've stayed in - Doug was welcoming and charming. Wonderful lakeside location; large, clean rooms; wifi that actually works! Right next door to the Lobster Galley, which is a friendly place to eat. Well placed for the ferry to Newfoundland (about 30 mins drive to/from North Sydney), or for the Cabot Trail.

The pros: St Ann's Motel has a beautiful view of the ocean and the owners are very friendly. The cons: The noise from the highway (the motel sits at an intersection of 2 highways) is very noticeable. The bed was far too soft and featured a serious trough down the middle. Thus, unfortunately, we didn't sleep well at all.

The St. Ann's is a very clean motel run by very nice people, and it has a stunning view. But though the address is on the Cabot Trail, it's at the intersection of the Cabot Trail and Rt. 105, so there's pretty steady highway noise. We kept a fan on at night and that lessened the drone, but you could... More

Wonderful find. Reasonable rates. Extra clean. Friendly owners who take pride in their business. Christine does the decorating and Doug does the maintenance. If we ever get this far north again this view with a place will be on our agenda.

If you're anywhere near the Cabot Trail, this motel will surprise you. The room (#7) was great. Well equipped and a view to die for right over the water. I was alone but in good company you would be inspired for sure.

Very clean motel room with large picture window that faced the water - saw eagles perching and flying. Sat outside to watch the sunset and wildlife. Road noise could be heard in the room. At end of Cabot Trail and near college, but not much else around. Not in downtown Baddeck.

We spent two nights at the St. Anne's Motel and were fortunate to get the housekeeping unit. A picture window and deck looked out onto St. Ann's Bay - a wonderful little spot to sit and have a glass of wine at the end of a day on the Cabot Trail. Owners Doug and Christine Coolen were very accommodating and... More

We enjoyed our stay at St. Ann's Motel. This was our second stop on the Cabet trail. In both cases we found very clean rooms - our number 1 requirement. The rooms had a large window looking out on a beautiful water view.

This motel has everything you want for a pleasant stay. Our room was spacious and very clean. Very comfortable bed. Huge picture window with a fantastic view of the bay. Mini fridge. A coffee maker with real ground coffee (not the paper bag stuff), and a whole jar of coffee whitener rather than the little packets you get at some... More

I am not a Motel person - I normally consider them to be run down and dumpy. However, after staying at this place, I will definitely consider staying at motels in the future! We selected this Motel based on TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. It is well maintained, and the rooms are clean. It has great views, and is... More
