We were a little nervous about booking a motel with online information only, but we are so glad that we did. When we walked into the room, my wife's face lit up. She declared, "I don't care what else we have planned, I'm not leaving this room!" The room was beautifully decorated, very clean and smelled nice. The highlight of... More

Seems like the motel had recent renovations. The rooms are very nice, spacious, clean and updated. A microwave, coffee maker and fridge in the rooms. The bathroom was to die for! Our balcony looked over a cove in the Atlantic Ocean. Very beautiful and peaceful. Owners had fire pit and chairs right on the water. Price was reasonable. No A/C,... More

This is the closest Motel to Peggy's Cove. The price is average and it is very very clean and recently updated. Each room has a fabulous view overlooking the ocean. They provide a wonderful spot to sit outside overlooking the ocean so you can watch the sun rise and set. They even provide a place to have a fire. My... More

I booked this motel just looking for a room as close as I could find to Peggy's cove as possible thinking that I was "just booking a room" for two adults and two children for our stay on July 10. Much to my surprise this was an exceptional motel to stay at. The staff are very friendly and accommodation. And... More

Nothing to complain about here. We stayed in an updated room with a balcony that provided us with an amazing view of the ocean. The motel is close to Peggys Cove - nice little fishing community. Check in and out was quick and the front desk person was friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

On our way to Peggy's Cove we found that lovely Motel with the very nice and helpful owner. Our room was newly renovated and extremly clean, with a tasteful interior. From our balcony we had an awsome view we will never forget. Whenever you are in this Region a stay is a must!

Not a very friendly reception at the desk and some confusion over the rooms. They were very basic with poor bathrooms, dingy looking Bathmats, no glasses just paper cups for drinks. After asking for glasses received some plastic ones that looked as though they needed washing. The view was the only redeeming feature and was pleased to leave after only... More

We stayed at the Clifty Cove Motel for 2 nights during a road trip of the East Coast. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone travelling in the Peggys Cove area. The rooms were very well kept and comfortable, with a view to die for!! We really enjoyed being able to have a bon fire at night. The owners... More

On a motorcycle trip and spotted this place- looked ordinary enough until we noticed we could look straight through to an unbelievably beautiful view behind it. So glad we found it! Comfy, clean, friendly, perfect. Andl we were directed by the owner to "The Finer Diner" right up the road- another great place. Would definitely go back Connie & Chris... More

We stayed at the Clifty Cove Motel and it was everything we hoped for... and then some! We definitely would highly recommend it! The newly renovated room was perfect. It was spotless and it had a little fridge and microwave to store snacks. The ocean view from our balcony was amazing and we spent every night taking in the view... More
