This was an overall pleasant motel in a good location. Very clean with comfortable beds. Dog friendly at no extra charge. Excellent value - very reasonably priced. Continental breakfast was fine considering the reasonable rate. Did not feel dated as others have said. Highly recommended for a short visit.

This is a great little motel. Its very neat and clean, rates are reasonable, there are water views and it is within walking distance to restaurants. They allow dogs but the room did not have any pet odors. I would stay here again in a minute and it is probably one of the best finds in Cheticamp.

I stayed 1 night here. I had a simple room with a shared bathroom. Everything was very clean, bed fine and WIFI worked well. Housekeeper was very nice and helpful. Basic breakfast was provided. Good value for a short stay. Would only recommend that smoking not be allowed on the front porch.

A great choice if you want clean and comfortable basic lodging at terrific value. The major PROs are the price and the location. I liked being within short walking distance of 2 good restaurants and the short boardwalk. The motel units are behind the main house and there is ample parking on the lawn adjacent to the gravel driveway that... More

We couldnt decide between Merrys Motel and Alberts Motel so we spent one night at each. You get free breakfast and wifi here but no air conditioning. There is a fan and a fridge. Hostess Suzanne is a hoot. Location is excellent. My friend found her bed hard but i did not find that to be. Porch chais to view... More

This motel is simple, but just what we needed for a place to stay for a couple of days in the national park with young children. A simple breakfast of toast, muffins, and fruit, along with juice and coffee, was included. Central and well-located.

It's about as clean as you can ask for in a motel. TV had a big selection of channels. The owner was very sweet and had a great sense of humour, she's great to talk to and learn about the town from. The light breakfast included with our room was coffee, fruit, bread and incredibly delicious blueberry muffins that she... More

Stayed at Merry's one night while on a motorcycle ride around the Cabot Trail. Cheticamp is a good spot to stay while visiting the trail. Small motel/B&B right in the middle of town, good location, close to a few restaurants. Stayed in the motel rooms, nothing fancy but they are clean and comfortable which is all I really need.
