nothing fancy here but a clean room,great view,and super nice host. We stayed 3 days and traveled up and down the coast.Great base camp. Although we're two adults,this place is perfect for a young family.Play ground area and young host with children make for a welcoming stay if you have little ones.

We found this place via Trip Advisor and while nice, it's not that great. It's easy to find, easy to park, and pretty clean. But the whole motel itself needs a lot of freshening. The one thing that REALLY irked us is that there was NO power outlet in the bathroom. Yes, none. And I promise you that we looked.... More

One location my 87 year old father and I ended up at during our 3,458 mile "bonding" trip was Peggy's Cove. First of all the area is unlike anything this Pennsylvanian has ever experienced, definitely worth traveling to. We arrived without reservations (we had no established itinerary) but since it was early June and still in their pre-season, Clifty Cove... More

This Family run Motel is a Gem in the making. The addition of decks toward the ocean on some rooms is making it a destination resort. The Linens and bath are alway clean but the dusting, vacuuming and web removal from the windows may be is left undone on multiple night stays. I am sure if one asked staff to... More

I needed an affordable room for a one night stay near Peggy's Cove, and the Clifty Cove Motel fit the bill. It is an older motel, but the room was nice and clean. It is right on the ocean; great view from my window. It is also a few minute drive to the Peggy's Cove lighthouse. The owner was very... More

There aren't too many hotel/motel-type accommodations close to Peggy's Cove, which is where we needed to be. (There are several B&Bs, but we needed flexible breakfast hours). I was leery about a 2-star, older, side-of-the-road motel, but our options were limited, the reviews were great and the price was reasonable. Upon our arrival we were greeted warmly and our room...

The motel has a fantastic location with picture windows looking out onto the water. You go to sleep listening to the sounds of the water and the birds. Is close by to hiking areas, lots of scenic areas and, of course, Peggy's Cove. Great places to eat nearby or within a short drive that you don't mind due to the... More

If you are always closeted in warm clothing to offset the cold in Canada, then it is prudent to escape to a sea side holiday. The Clifty Cove Motel in Halifax is just the place with glorious views of the sea from your rooms. Looking out from your hotel window the Atlantic Ocean is there in all its majesty only... More

This motel is literally right next to the ocean. Fabulous view from your room. Set on a lovely cove very near Peggy's Cove. Rooms were immaculately clean. It is not a fancy place but has everything you need and furniture and fittings all very tidy. Owners very friendly and helpful. Going to sleep with the sound of the ocean and... More

We drove from ontario in one day so we were running very late for check in (it was like 10:30 p.m!!) called ahead and they said no problem. They were very kind when we got there despite us being so late. Room was great., super clean and well cared for. And we had our dog with us as well which... More
