There weren't too many accommodation options in Cheticamp in mid-October so, based on some very positive reviews, we booked two rooms for a one-night stay after a full-day's drive from Baddeck. Our first impressions were not good as the house/office is unimpressive and needs some work. Also from outside the motel complex is dated and doesn't give the weary visitor... More

We stayed in the apartment so we could cook a meal. There were no knives or cooking utensils, no MW. We ended up eating out except for breakfast and taking sandwiches for lunch (didn't need an apartment to do this). The apartment was spacious and comfortable, but would stay in the motel next time.

Cheticamp is a great town to stop in along the Cabot Trail, offering a lot of dining options and accommodations for the weary traveller. Merry's Motel offers nice accommodations at a decent price. While not the fanciest motel, it was clean and quiet on a recent visit by my wife and I. We stayed in Room #1 which offers the... More

Merry's Motel / Sue’s B&B and their host Susanna was a great experience. The B&B building is exceptionally beautiful and located near the waterfront of Cheticamp with restaurants and great sights of the ocean. The room we stayed in was very cozy and clean – we could have easily spent more than just one night in here. The place is... More

We stayed in this motel as a cheaper option to some of the more expensive places that we had been staying in. Frankly very good value. No frills. Comfortable, very clean, we liked the twin bed option rather than the double, the lady owner a lovely character, very direct and answered all our questions honestly and openly. Towels were a...

After researching all the Motels on the Cabot Trail we decided on this one, and were not disappointed. I had booked 3 months in advance, and when we arrived, the rate had gone down a bit and was adjusted to our stay, which was very nice of them. The room we had was so nice, with the two beds. You...

We were more than pleased with our overnight stay at this lovely motel. We were later arriving that we had planned so didn't have time to relax and enjoy the evening sun on the stoop unfortunately. The rooms were tastefully furnished and more than adequate in size and very clean. The owner advised us on restaurants nearby for dinner but... More

Just more places like this one. Nice B&B and Motel, clean and very affordable with more than only sufficient breakfast. Great place for Cape Breton exploration and whale watching due to small port across the street.

We were looking for something economical as well as comfortable. We were more than happy with the motel room we booked. The linens were fresh and good quality. The beds were comfortable. The room was very clean. There was no hair dryer though. That's the only thing we lacked. The light breakfast was very adequate with delicious muffins full of... More

Nice and clean. Good price. Nothing to say about the breakfast as we did not have any. The gentleman that stays/works there (or whatever he does) wasn't very helpful when asking for direction in regards to activities in the area. We would stay again. Good experience.
