My girlfriend and I arrived in Louisbourg, after spending the day at the Fortress. It's a pretty small town, and there weren't too many hotels to choose from. We asked at the Fortress Inn, and the receptionist said she had a room. We specifically asked for non-smoking; she said she had two rooms, either of which could accommodate us. Luckily,... More

It is amazing how bad a pace can be and still offer rooms. We lit candles to try and get rid od the smell no luck. There had been some attempt to cover the walls with paint no luck. I would avoid this place until they clean it up to a decent standard.

After a long drive we were desperate for a place to stay. The Fortress is on the main street so good location but the fun stops there. Whole place needs updating. Room was clean but uncomfortable bed, almost no electric outlets, no hairdryer, TV barely worked, Wi-Fi in and out. It got us through the night but would not go... More

Pretty basic motel room in a town with not a lot of choices. Smelled a bit musty when we first entered though that cleared quickly and never returned. No appliances such as fridge, microwave, or coffee maker. Bed was nice and firm. Would have slept well except noise in adjacent rooms woke us several times. Decent towels and nice sheets.... More

Stayed in August 2015. For the price it wasn't a bad stay at all. Very clean room and bathroom. Our room had an air conditioner. We found beds to be comfortable, one of them could be firmer though. Internet wasn't the best. People were kind and helpful. It was overall a pleasant and relaxing stay. There is a bar with... More

Room was terrible, beds need to be replaced and sheets smelled like whoever stayed there last. Restaurant wasn't better, service was good but meal sucked, had a hot turkey, Gravy was lumpy and tasteless, potatoes were lumpy. Won't go back.

The bed was terrible, needs to be replaced. The TV was old and not working well. The advertised wifi wasn't connecting to the Internet. Some of the lights did not work. The restaurant in the morning was a complete disaster. The waitress was overworked and the food so so . Will not return

Wow.... newly renovated room? Maybe they painted, but the walls were never fixed, just painted over the bangs and holes. Gyproc screws coming back out of walls. No phone, no alarm clock, TV in an older 20"ish with no remote. The room smell musty. The bed springs are broken and you roll to the center. The carpets are either stained... More

Stayed one night while visiting the fort and the lighthouse. Checking in the lady was very nice, suggested places to eat and see. Opening the door to the room I was hit with a powerful musty smell so we left the windows open a while and could then breath. The room was clean and spacious. The double beds were comfortable....
