$148 for room that spears to be the same as it was in the 70's. Dark and dingy. Shower head was cheapest possible and mid shower ran out of hot water. Towels were small and I needed to ask for more. Breakfast included, buffet good and plentiful.

The Inn has 3 buildings with the office at the top of the hill with the (newest?) portion of the inn. There is a building in the middle and then (likely the original units) closer to the road. I was in the building closest to the road so I can only comment about my experience in this section. Pros: The... More

We needed a place to stay while traveling around the Cabot Trail and we saw a good review for Laurie's Motor Inn. I should have known we were in trouble when we walked into the office and the person behind the desk didn't address us right away and then only after we stood over her did she say "so what... More

We really enjoyed our two night stay at Laurie's Motor Inn in Cheticamp. We were in one of the buildings further up the hill on the second floor. Our room was super clean and comfortable. We had a sliding glass door leading to a private patio with a gorgeous view. The owners do a lot with regard to landscaping with... More

We stayed here as part of our Caravan tour and it was a lovely location with a friendly owner and excellent staff! It is situated on a hill which runs down to the water where the fishing boats all come in where there is a crab processing facility. The hotel is located in several different buildings and the main restaurant... More

Spent one night at Laurie's as we were finishing our trip along the Cabot Trail. Laurie's is well priced and a pleasant sleepover location. The included breakfast was a reasonably complete hot buffet.

We had a clean and comfortable room on the upper level looking out over the bay. Excellent service from all the staff and a very good breakfast. No complaints from us. A great location. A short walk to the village.

Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was great with quite a good selection. The complex includes a laundry facility, which is always good when you've been on the road for awhile. Close walking distance to everything.

The room was large and comfortable although the decor was outdated. Large bathroom with nice shampoo, gel, etc. The restaurant was very, very good. I had meat pie which was deliciious. We had breakfast the next morning which included eggs benedict, one of my favorites. Inn staff was gracious and helpful.
