This place is extremely good value and to be completely honest was a lot nicer than we expected given what it cost. The bed was super comfortable with plenty of pillows, the room was very spacious and even included a comfy couch was which was a nice addition. We were expecting to be cold at night and I figured there... More

If you are looking for a comfortable night's sleep at a good price, check this place out. Convenient location, close to the highway and shops and easy to get to downtown New Glasgow. Quick and friendly check-in. The room was fairly spacious, and did not looked dated. Comfy two-seater sofa, queen bed, flat screen TV, fridge and microwave. The room... More

There are lots of shops nearby and a major shopping centre one exit west on hwy. 104. Because it is close to the road it is... More

Motels have usually been a case of "you get what you pay for" in my travel experience. This gem, just off the highway, was a treat. Very clean, comfortable and well-cared for. You can tell the owners take pride in their property. Bathroom is spotless with a few nice newer upgrades touches. The tub is deep and wide and this... More

Stayed here for New Glasgow Jubilee weekend, for the second year in a row. The rates are great and the rooms are always very clean. It is close to many restaurants and to the hospital but is also the closest place to the Jubilee. We walked there and back one night but drove the next. Tara Inn was fully booked... More

Practical, comfortable, convenient. This was booked for me by a colleague who knows that my travel priority, when on business, is a good sleep with reliable internet and breakfast ready early. Tara was an excellent choice.

The Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beds were terribly hard...confusing about the bill part, was charged extra for a delux room when economy room was requested, was charged a pet fee without notification of such....when I called about it, no apology was offered.. Little disappointed in the treatment I received from the management...I have stayed at this hotel... More

A pleasant surprise. A lovely quaint, homey motel with recent upgrades. For a budget price I got a beautiful room with windows on 2 sides allowing a nice cross breeze. Upgraded bathroom all shiny and bright. Bonus...free continental breakfast self-serve! Cheryl and staff are super friendly and helpful. They even lent me some dishes to use in the microwave in...
