We made the trip from North Sydney to Port Hawksbury for a wake and funeral. We thought the hotel was booked but it turned out they had a cancellation. We spoke to Donna who extended her sympathies to us and booked out room. We had a wonderful stay considering the circumstances. We stayed on the second floor which was quiet.... More

This hotel is the best I have seen in this town, there is 2 restaurant attached and the most complete fitness room. The restaurant price for breakfast was fair for the quality and service. The pub-resto is really nice, one of the best in town. There is some fast food very close as a grocery store. The outside of the... More

Rooms were large and well kept. Restaurant was good. But service was the very best. I got in after the restaurant had closed, but with help from the front desk and the kitchen I got an excellent seafood dinner. Excellent service all the way round. Thank-you.

No frills, no fridge or microwave - but serviceable and clean - not much to choose from in restaurants in the area or anything else to speak of. The room was nice and comfortable as well as being quiet.

This motel is a drive up that doesn't look great from the outside. I was a little relieved when I went inside but not very much. The room was large but not very well arranged. The bath had been remodeled but had hair on the floor edges. There were also stains on the carpeted area. A trip down the inside... More

I was worried about this place, based on some reviews I read and the pics posted here but I have to say it was really nice. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows, oh my, the pillows are better than the ones I have at home. You can tell the place was recently renovated and even my bathroom was... More

This hotel had a lot of negative reviews but I think they are unfounded. We had one of the renovated rooms, which was roomy and clean. It was very quiet. Great location for an early crossing of the Canso causeway. We did not eat at the restaurant though we got their breakfast to go, a hot egg sandwich, it was... More

Excellent location entering Canso Cape Breton. We stopped and spent one night after touring CB Island. Viewing a few other hotels in the area the Maritime Inn felt more inviting with offering newer rooms. We were given a couple room choices and took the newly renovated. Very nice, clean and comfortable at a reasonable price point. Enjoyed evening snacks in... More

I stayed here for two nights and found the hotel to be very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Rooms are typical hotel rooms but beds are comfortable. The attached restaurant is also pretty good (has a bar and burgers, pasta, and seafood). Hotel has a small fitness room and indoor pool. If you stay here, be sure to walk the three... More

We were rather late arriving having had a long day at Fort Louisburg and a long drive so were pleasantly surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a room very tastefully furnished, with a fridge where we could keep our lunch foods cool.
