Stayed here for one night. Cute little place with breakfast included. Immaculately clean and very economical. Our room had a beautiful view of the water. Service was great. A very well cared for motel. Perfect location if you are driving the Cabot Trail.

This is a good value for a night's stay. No frills. The motel is older and dated, but my room was large and clean. There was a fan, desk, and TV in the room. A light breakfast is available in the main house. It is just toast and coffee, but that is what I was expecting. There are restaurants with... More

Stayed based on others' reviews, and it was a great stop. Very economical and clean. Very friendly owner-operator with great suggestions about the area. It is basic, but all we needed for our first night on the Cabot Trail.

Excellent place to stay. Good service. Very very clean rooms. lovely chairs outside to sit out and look at water and boats, Only issue we did not like was very hard beds. Both my husband and i woke up with sore backs.

The location is perfect for visiting The Cape Breton Highlands NP. Basic continental breakfast with blueberry muffins and bakery fresh bread for toast. Freshly brewed coffee & orange juice was also available. It is a short drive toward the park for Tim Horton's if you need more. Sue and Martin are gracious hosts, and you get a B&B feeling even...

We spent the night at Merry's Motel when traveling around Cape Breton Island. The rooms are spotless, something you notice as soon as you walk in the door. There is a small refrigerator in the room, which was nice, since we had a cooler with us for camping and could put things in it for the night. The bathroom was... More

We arrived in Cheticamp on our way round the Cabot Trail. Looking for a convenient place to stay, we saw Sue's place. We'd read reviews before and it looked like the right place for us. Sue is a great host and is always happy to chat and give advice about what to see, where to go and the best places... More

This small family owned motel has been renovated to provide modern comforts. The proprietors operate as a B & B, providing a simple breakfast in the dining room of their Victorian era farmhouse. There are several dining opportunities within walking distance and the Cape Breton Highlands National Park is only minutes up the road. You could get a lot less... More

Sure, this is a motel with drive up rooms. But there are about 10 of them, and breakfast is served by Susan Oberli in her kitchen. First, the rooms. Basic, but very clean, and comfortable, with a common front porch. Nice view of the bay across the street, depending partly on the particular room. The included breakfast iincludes coffee, orange...

Had a 3 night stay here while exploring the Cabot Trail. Probably the cleanest place I had ever stayed. The very light breakfast was perfect and the the staff were very friendly! Look forward to staying there again!
