This motel seems as though it is gradually being improved upon but there is still nothing that makes it better than just adequate for a very short term stay. The prices are in line with what you get - a relatively clean room with little more than a bed (that is very tired itself) and a TV that supposedly gets... More

We stayed here last minute and totally unplanned. We stayed in a "standard room, no a/c" which was super clean and a good size for two people. The bed was showing its age but still remained firm; nothing to fear in the bathroom as it was bright and bleached. It was 30 minutes to Cheticamp for dinner and the scenery... More

Nice spot along the highway. The room was very nice and clean, although the bathroom could use a little updating. It was clean, but old. In fact, on this trip, we stayed in a number of roadside motels, and this room was by far the nicest with the best bed.

If i had no other choice, I would stay here again, but I feel it should cost even less or would insist on a room with air conditioner at least. Our room was so smelly, we couldn't sleep. It had no air conditioner. Beds - most uncomfortable, mattress made of springs with no padding... Room felt filthy. Bathroom was ok... More

When you're down, and troubled, and you need a roof overhead, and there's nowhere, whoa nowhere to spend the night. (Apologies to James Taylor.) The place is decently clean, mostly. Beds had springs - you could count them as you rolled from one side to the other.

This is a simple basic Motel but it is perched up on a hill overlooking the Heritage Margaree River. With aceess to fishing. It also looks down on the local post office. If you need to mail a letter. The rooms were clean. The fitness centre is under renos but there is an outside pool. I would stay there again.

We booked 2 of the deluxe rooms and were very pleased. For $99 this is the best value on Route 19. I find almost all of the motels from the causeway to Cheticamp are old, tired and over priced. Werner ( the owner) takes pride in this property and it shows. You can tell he is reinvesting in this property.... More

Enjoyed talking to the desk guy about his travels. Our room was very clean. It was functional with all you might need to stay for a fishing vacation with a fully furnished kitchen. Nothing fancy, but comfortable enough.

My friend and I made a trip here for the weekend to fish, coming from Maine. The owner set us up with a guide and gave us plenty of tips on flies and places to fish. The rooms were nice, clean, had TV, a fridge and all we needed. We were extremely happy with the room, the service, and the... More

We rented the 2 bedroom. Exceptionally clean, supplied with all amenities, cottage feel. The staff were kind and helpful, and the amenities on site were wonderful. Our unit was outfitted with a kitchen including a microwave, fridge and stove. Dishes were included. Our unit was spacious and furnished better than some 4 star resorts. We will definitely be coming back!
