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.

This is a nice little motel style accommodation. We booked in advance as we were travelling in prime time. The reservation was a good thing to have as the place was full the evening we stayed. We had planned to drive the Cabot Trail and found Merry's Motel was nicely situated for a stay at the end of the day.... More

A great stay at this well appointed place. Convenient location and very decent rooms. Shared bathroom which didn't seem to be a problem as not all rooms were booked. A simple breakfast accompanies the room rate. Friendly and accommodating owners/operators. A nice lounge room is also available with a fridge if needed.

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
