Cosy, quiet, well-maintained property with beautiful gardens! There is a nice waterfall/pond. We had a warm reception from Joan and she was very hospitable. The room was more than comfortable and very, very clean! New mattresses and lovely linens along with complimentary tea and coffee in room. Be sure to bring your own hair dryer though as that is not... More

What a great little motel. My son and I stayed there on a golfing tour of the valley. This motel was built in the 50’s, but this is a great little spot. As previously stated, it is smaller and some of the furniture is dated, but the TV is a new LG HD model and the bathroom had all new... More

Very charming little place with friendly staff. Great value, comfortable and clean. Rooms had older furniture but it didnt bother me. Didn't have the breakfast but it sounded good and was only 3.50. Only complaint was shower size.

Room was pleasant but a little small. The breakfast offered for sale was good and of good value especially nice was the fine china. The grounds could be better kept, needed a little more grounds keeping.

I was impressed with the quality of accommodation that I had found in Nova Scotia. The friendly welcome, the facilities provided and value for money too, so it was here at Allen's Motel, an extremely attractive and well run establishment. Since 1971 owned by the same family, initially 22 years by Jessie & Arthur Oakley, now by their son Michael... More

Normally when we visit the Annapolis valley we stay with friends. This year that option was not available, but we stayed at Allen's Motel which was almost the same thing. The property with its gardens and bird feeders is delightful, and as commented by others the rooms are clean and bright with tv wifi air conditioning assigned parking. Traditional motels... More

This is a semi budget hotel with assigned parking outside your door. The rooms are clean but nothing fancy, bathrooms are small with a smaller shower (narrow with no elbow room), and each room has AC and a ceiling fan. There is free WiFi and breakfast is excellent for only $3.50 (no menu, same for everyone). The lady that runs... More

This has to have been the best place we stay the whole time we were in Nova Scotia and we stayed at the Four Points Sheridan in Halifax and The Dundee resort to mention two. The Allen's Motel was the cleanest place we have ever stayed at, bright clean rooms, I am sure they must have redone the bathrooms as... More

On first impressions, this motel lived up to its (mostly) rave reviews. The room was in the new part of the complex, clean, fresh and spacious. We were able to park the car right outside the room making it very convenient to transfer luggage upstairs. However, upon retiring to bed the "security" light outside our bedroom window floodlit the entire... More

Our family stayed at the Allen Motel during the Gunn Tournie. We stayed in Room 8 which had two double beds, microwave, fridge. The room was spotless and quite large. We also enjoyed the breakfast for 3.50. It was absolutely lovely. We will definitely stay there again.
