Stayed for one night, very nice rooms, king bed, couch, chair, fridge and microwave. Free wifi and continental breakfast. Each room has a beautiful view of the ocean overlooking Mavilette Beach, with adirondack chairs and a small table to enjoy the beautiful sunset. The beach is a short walk and at low tide the beach is huge. Would definitely recommend... More

Stayed in a two bedroom cottage. Better views in the motel but enjoyed it. Free breakfast was not extensive but the homemade muffins and biscuits were a treat. Bedrooms were small - not much room to move around- but the beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows (unusual and nice). Decent kitchen chairs. Plenty of extras- like a hair dryer... More

Just spent a wonderful evening at this place. The beach was warm and inviting, and not really crowded. Our room, which we got with very short notice was comfortable and provided a lovely view of the beach. The owners are always friendly and have coffee ready for all the guests in the morning. A great spot to go to get... More

The room was musty and smelled. The mattress along with carpet etc needed updating. Having said that it was clean, the owner was very nice and the view incredible. It's your basic motel. Breakfast was fine

Rooms are small and could use a decor upgrade. Very little water pressure in the bathroom and it took forever to get hot water in the morning. The room was equipped with a kitchenette with all the dishes a person would need.

We were touring through Nova Scotia and one stop was near Yarmouth. We stayed here at the Cape View and were very pleased with this hotel. It has a wonderful location just north of Yarmouth. The owners provided awesome service to us from the minute we pulled in until we left. We had a wonderful corner room which was very... More

Very enjoyable vacation. We spent two nights in a cottage in this beautifull place, in Mavillette. Baie Ste-Marie, this time of the year (First week of July) was surprinsigly quiet. The weather was perfect and this motel /cottage is located near the amazing beach of Mavillette. The hosts are charming and friendly. It's a perfect place to relax and enjoy... More

I must start by saying that the review posted by "Trevor S" was basically our exact experience. My husband and I are from Yarmouth (25 minutes away approximately), but decided to support a local business and stay for the night at Cape View. We had 2 friends that live close by stop in to visit us, and we were out... More

Russell W, Owner at Cape View Motel and Cottages, responded to this review

When this lady checked in she professed to be non-smokers and did not need to know where the smoking area was. Our quiet time is at 10:00 and all non registered guests have no business being on the grounds. But if you consider yourself an "Adult" and are in the education field of work, you should be aware that it... More

This is a wonderful peaceful place to stay. The hotel offers motel rooms with spectacular ocean views and very cozy cottages. We stayed in the cottage because we had a baby. The hotel is walking distance to one of the most peaceful and beautiful beaches in the area. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the A... More
