Horrible experience when we stayed there. The motel was the only place in town that lost power, we had no heat, no lights, no water.. We froze all night as there were no extra blankets, wouldn't refund our money after being there for only 1 hour, and upon check out, they still gave us a hard time as the power... More

My son and I visited last weekend as we wanted to stay as close to the hospital as possible to visit my aunt. Zach (Zack?) sorry....at the front desk was very welcoming. My son thought he had left a nostalgic piece of jewelry there and Zach called me later in the day to say they hadn't found it in the... More

This was all we were looking for while enroute to Cape Breton and it was just fine. Close to the highway but far enough to not have any traffic noise. Linens were clean but the bedspreads were circa 1980's; could be updated. Room was a good size for two women. Breakfast was a cold continental meal but was not well... More

Room and bathroom were both very clean. Towels were good quality. Shampoo and soap provided, no hairdryer. My room was supposed to have a double and a twin. Instead had a double and a very old fold out sofa bed. Glad it did because a twin bed would have made the room much too crowded. I had a "downstairs "... More

When making the reservations, Cheryl was very courteous and helpful. Upon arrival, the two people on staff were two of the friendliest people I have ever met at the front desk of a motel. Upon hearing the story of my being in New Glasgow, they even offered to look into finding family members. They were helpful to tell me where... More

My wife and I, along with our two young children recently made a pit stop here on out way out to Halifax. We aren't luxurious travellers and only stay at places that offer what we need; nothing more. We arrived fairly late as it was already dark outside. The inn is a single level building with 3 separate units, with... More

I find it hard to believe that this hotel is rated #1 in New Glasgow. We arrived about 9:30 at night having driven over 3 hours from Cape Breton. When we opened the door to our room, I was overwhelmed by the odor, wasn't sure if it was stale cigarette smoke or some spray they use to cover odors. The... More

My family and I were getting set to take the ferry over to PEI the following day, so we made room reservations at the nearby Tara Inn. This is an ideal place to stay, as the ferry terminal is only a 20-minute drive away, and it's an excellent value. The room was tidy and clean, the bed comfortable, and the... More

How I wish ALL economical motels were like this one. Soooo clean, quiet, and safe feeling. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Enjoyed visiting with other travelers at breakfast. Loved having WIFI. Every aspect of this motel was "top notch".
