Welcomed by a very friendly staff, and directed to our room. We could park right in front of it which is handy. The room itself was clean and comfortable. The decor is a little dated, but the prices are right, so who cares for a quick stopover? There were all the things you might want like fridge, wi-fi, luggage racks,... More

Needed to be in the area for the opening night of Celtic Colors so chose this motel. It was close to things, but smelled a little musty. Just okay, but at least it was clean. Nice to have restaurant close, but service was very slow.

Nice stop before and after doing the Cabot Trail. Our cabin was cozy and charming. We ate dinner in the restaurant two nights and the food and service was excellent. Lovely view of the water from the dining room.

Friendly helpful staff, lovely breakfast. Very reasonable rates! We would have preferred an ocean view but when booking did not realize it was an option.The sign leading into the motel is due for a paint job, especially since it is the lead in to your overnight stay.

Thanks for the feedback, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay! I'll work on the website and make sure that it clearly shows which rooms have the ocean view. As for the paint job, we're actually just about to put up a brand new sign any day now! Some prior guests have mentioned the same about the sign, as well... More

This motel is in a beautiful natural setting and is a short drive to Port Hawkesbury. I liked having the option of staying in a self contained cabin. The accommodation was simple but adequate. I did not eat in the dining room.

My wife and I stayed in one of their cabins for three nights for our anniversary. It rained the entire time..haha...the cabin was clean and comfortable. Housekeeping was offered to us and fresh towels were brought to us. Very good service. We will be going back for sure.

We loved our stay at the Cove Motel. The people were wonderful, professional and funny. This is not your typical brand hotel, it is beautiful! It is the perfect place to stay if you are heading towards the Cabot trail. The restaurant was excellent!

Room was clean and quiet, king bed was comfortable. It came with a large closet with 2 suitcase stands, power bar with 4 usb outlets and an ac that worked perfectly. Outside bench, park at the door and much more.

We really appreciate that The Cove was dog-friendly. We had cabin #230 - nice waterfront location. Arrived late in the day; unfortunately the following day the weather was horrific --- high winds, cold rain - so we couldn't really enjoy the outside much. Cabins - yes, rustic. Fine for a night, but we wouldn't want to stay longer...There's potential to... More
