My wife & I arrived after a long day of biking and we were looking forward to a relaxing ocean swim to cool off. Our motel owner/manager asked his wife to help ... she drove us to a wonderful beach and came back and picked us up an hour later! Now that's what I call hospitality!

One problem I had with choosing a motel in Chéticamp is figuring out where “downtown” is. I like to walk everywhere after a day’s driving. This motel’s location is as good as it gets. Cross the street, turn right, and you will find the south end of the harbor boardwalk. The host is very personable and helpful. The room was... More

We stayed one night in late August. Initially, we had planned to stay 2 nights in Cheticamp but when we arrived, we decided to stay an extra day. Unfortunately, the motel that we were staying at was booked so the owner suggested we try the Acadian. A room was available and we were able to check in early. The room... More

i stayed here for two nights In ?September. My room was very clean. Internet was really slow. A little outdated but okay for a short stay. The owner and staff were friendly and showed me all the good places to set. If you are visiting the national park be sure to go on the skyline trail.. Spectacular

We stayed at Cheticamp on our first night in Cape Breton. Regular hotel chains are pretty much non-existent here, so one has to pick from the available motels and B&Bs, No B&Bs were present and we got in late, so we went with the Acadian. As expected, the place is a notch or two below standard hotel/motel chains. The rooms... More

We were looking to visit Cape Breton Highlands National Park, so we decided to stay in Cheticamp NS. The Acadian motel was a good place to stay with a pretty reasonable rate. It was close to restaurants and the harbour board walk. The air conditioner was very loud and uncomfortable and the bathroom needed to be redone. However, the service... More

In all respects but one this could be considered a typical roadside motel of the 1950's genre. However, that one is very important. The owner is amazingly devoted to his establishment. It is extremely well cared for which is quite unusual for establishments of this type at this price point.

We had a wonderful stay in early August. We were very pleased with the location and the cleanliness of the motel. It is a great location from which to explore the Cabot Trail. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. It was nice to have a microwave and fridge in the room. Ron and Catherine were very helpful... More

We have stayed many times in Cheticamp but chose this motel because our usual one was full. We were very pleased with the location and the cleanliness of the Motel plus it was good value for money. The room on the mid front overlooked the water and there were many guests but no noise. Room held a double bed, flat... More

This is our second time staying here only this time was in early June while the first time was in August. It is clean and well maintained. The room is larger than motels we have found and since we were there four nights the extra space was appreciated. We rested well in the beds and the refrigerator allowed us to... More
