My first impression walking into the office was the horrible smell. Just awful. We were given a room with red smelly dirty carpet, no wifi connection, and a BLOOD stain on the blanket! Owner was very rude and unprofessional. Very unimpressed

Spent 3 nights in September. A good deal and pleasant stay. Accommodations are clean and quiet. Nice location. Room included refrigerator and microwave - important to us. Be sure to walk down to the river forks area behind the library to see the real "Forks". Beautiful !!

I stayed in the suite 1 for a few nights with my dad whilst we were fishing in the local area and the accomodation was great value. The owner was very helpful and I would recomend it. The people in this area are very friendly.

We found this Inn on trip advisor, it looked OK, read the reviews and should have listened to them. On first glance it is in need of a lot of repair along with up dating (which I can usually live with); when we first entered the room the scent was old and musty, opened windows and it was OK.

I called in reservations about a month in advance after contacting by e-mail about the date I needed. A few days after I called to confirm the reservation, he called to say they had made an error, and did not have the room I had requested, then within an hour he called and said they had had a cancellation. When... More

Contrary to recent reviews, i thought this place was great value for the price - the room was very clean with a microwave, refridgerator and coffee maker - paying half of what we paid in other places. The owner was a little mercurial - but OK. It was too cold to use the pool - but we did use the... More

Great price but don't expect much. Was a cheap and more comfortable option to camping but wouldn't want to stay any longer than a single night. The room was dated but clean. Walls were very thin and we could hear everything our neighbours were saying. Beds were very uncomfortable because they were so short that my feet were hanging off... More

I agree with other reviews that the rooms are clean but outdated. There are no touches that make you feel comfortable, we found the rooms quite sterile. Unlike other reviews we did not find the owner friendly, communicative, or helpful. We found services in the town lacking and, if we had to do it again, we would have just driven... More

We used this hotel as our homebase during our honeymoon for exploring Cape Breton. The room was a great value for what we paid. Yes there was outdated carpet, but the rooms were spotless, linens were very clean and the service was fantastic. We were thrilled that they were dog friendly and were pleased with the fresh towles and coffee... More

I was glad the room had an air conditioner. It was 8:30PM. Owner did not answer phone when we needed extra towels that night of our stay. Spiders by the bed and other places around the room. Towels did not smell fresh. I was glad to be out of there the next morning. I paid $110.00 Tax included for this... More
