Calling this motel a resort is a stretch beyond anyone's imagination. It is a place to stay on a trip around the Cabot Trail. The room is clean, the beds hard, the TV small and the bathroom adequate. It is not a $176 room by any means. The pool is above ground and not nice...the beach is very nice. The... More

We stayed in the motel section of this "resort". It's not a resort in any stretch of anyone's imagination. The rooms are clean but this motel is not worth the $175 we paid. It's on the beautiful Cabot Trail and you are paying for a location along the way...they kind of have you over a barrel. The beach is very... More

Our family of five stayed in #420, a "beachfront cottage." We killed more than two dozen earwigs before going to bed. We used toilet paper and killed so many we plugged the toilet. We called for a plunger and told them about the infestation, and were told to get the plunger ourselves -and they dismissed the bug problem. The next... More

I had a great time in Ingonish and a lovely stay in one of the hotel units at Glenghorm. Upon booking, I was worried with all the bad reviews, but I realized that it's usually not the people who had a good time that bother to come back to write a review. My stay was just great I rented two... More

Rooms were disappointing. Very barren with very uncomfortable beds. The air conditioner was placed right beside one bed, making it impossible to have the AC on while using this bed. Not sure if the staff was un-accommodating or it was the management that they had to check with each time. This explains why there is so much vacancy. Hotel looks... More

My husband and I have stayed at this location several times in the past, and for the first time in 4 years have decided to stay again. My husband and I were traveling with another couple, so my husband called and booked a two bedroom cabin, and I was witness to that phone call. I called the morning of our... More

While we paid in full and had a confirmation from hotels.com, they did not honour it, as they do their own bookings for July and Aug. The manager did not seem to feel bad or do anything to redeem the situation. We were forced to pay over $300 for the one remaining room, and we could hear our neighbours as... More

I would not stay at glenghorm ever again. It was more of a motel than anything. I was expecting more of a cleaner hotel-like place. There was no breakfast included however there was a deli place next door with breakfast options. I just expected more

We stayed at this resort for 3 nights the first week of August 2015. We were in the Muir building downstairs when we entered the room there was a dehumidifier (first sign of problems) plus an air conditioner in the window. Much like other reviews the rooms are so dated and run down, the owners are trying to take as... More

We just spent two nights here and I thought it was great I've read the other negative reviews and my experience was nothing like theirs I was in one of their newly renovated rooms. It had engineered hardwood flooring, air conditioning, and was clean and tidy overall. Ice machine was directly outside my room which made filling the cooler a... More
