We arrived in Baddeck late at night after driving from Halifax. As we pulled into the St. Ann's Motel, I kept thinking - "I thought this was near the water." It was so funny when I woke up the next morning and pulled back the curtain to find we were just ten feet from the water. Needless to say, it... More

This feels like a nice motel in 1957. Clean, well-maintained, and right on the water, with a picture window in our room looking out on the bay. Friendly owners. But it's not the Ritz. Our room had two single beds with only one pillow each. Internet very slow at about 2 Mbps. No free breakfast. But it was quiet, a... More

We drove for hours from Halifax and the storm grew worse. We arrived in torrential rains and the owners still had our room for us. It was wonderful to have a place to go in pouring rain that was clean and quiet with lovely hosts who stayed up for us. In the morning the gorgeous view we had anticipated. Wish... More

I found St Ann's Motel through Trip Advisor. It was a great place to stop at the end of a long day driving the Cabot Trail. Very friendly host, fantastic view from our room right by the waters edge! Nice extra touch....real wine glasses! Convenient restaurant next door, but beware, it closes at 8 p.m. and doesn't open for breakfast....no... More

The site of this motel is so dramatic it should be a destination. The host is very friendly and informative. The room has a big picture window in the back with a view of St. Ann’s Harbour, which extends for miles. The room was fine, and had everything I needed except a microwave and a phone (very commonly absent in... More

We stayed 3 nights, and this was an excellent location from which to explore Cape Breton Island. We travelled with 2 kids, age 11 and 12, and there was plenty of room. There was no air conditioning, but the ceiling fans helped. The owner, Doug, was very gracious, and helpful. There was a full fridge in the housekeeping suite, and... More

We needed a place to stay in Beddeck, and the St. Ann's Motel and Cottage turned out to be the perfect place. The room we stayed in was totally renovated and very clean. The owner was very gracious giving us ideas on what to do in the area, and he even told us to be on the lookout for a... More

Their logo is: " A view with a room". As soon as you open the door to your room you are looking out a picture window to st Ann's Bay -- just beautiful and gorgeous. Rooms are simple, well accommodated -- flat TV, refrigerator, microwave etc. clean, charming and delightful. Right at the entrance to the sabotage trail.

Beautiful location! We were concerned about the proximity to the roads, but it was very quiet. Our room overlooked the water and we enjoyed watching birds (including bald eagles) glide and dive for fish. The owner gave us some very helpful advice about what to see and where to eat, as well as helping us find a mechanic for some... More
