The Berry motel located on robie st. is unclean, extremely mismanaged,with no regard for their paying customers.....we found dirty undergarments under the bed , cracked toilets , walls were cracked never sanded nor painted, FLEAS....when office closes no after hours number to call hope you don't have a hotel emergency .....owners/staff can be very harrassing/bullying/threatening almost being beligerent. we would NEVER recommend this establishment to anyone . will be followed by a report and complaint to the BBB.

We scheduled the night of Sept. 11 as a mid point drive from Yarmouth to Sydney. We were supposed to arrive at 6pm, however we wound up in a hospital in another town. Called the Motel to inform them that we would be very late. The Motel manager was very concerned about our welfare and told us to let her know what time we would we would finally arrive. She said that if the office was closed, she would find a place to leave our room key and we could settle up with her the next day. How nice is that. Rooms were basic, but clean and spacious. A real oasis. Give this place a try and I am sure you will love it.

I found the motel to be very clean and well kept. The managers were extremely friendly and helpful. My girlfriends and I wanted to have a girls night out and chose Berry's for it's location and price. We were quite satisfied with our service all around. Berry's is an older motel but it has certainly improved its look over the last few years and met all of our needs. I found the bathrooms to be exceptionally clean for an older motel as that is something important to me when renting a room. I personally would recommend this motel to anyone.

We stopped through Truro on our way to a reunion and thought Berry's Motel would be a great resting stop (for the price). We were very wrong. Geoff and Tammy have not been in the hospitality business for very long I'm guessing, for they didn't seem professional or experienced. They even had a cat laying on their service desk, with fur everywhere and the office reeked like cigarettes. Tammy the secretary was rude and confrontational, like she didn't really want to help us. We seemed to be a bother to her while she was sitting at her desk on the computer. I only had a few questions about the room, which seemed to be very short answered, and asked to view it first. I went down and stood in the room for a moment. I have dust allergies which are triggered in carpeted rooms, and it takes a few minutes for me to know if the room is suitable for staying in or not. When I came out of the room, Tammy was staring at me through the window of the office. We went to another motel.
My advice is to stay away from this place! The rooms are not the cleanest anyways, and the bathrooms are shameful. The price is not worth it!

We drove in as Berry's was advertising a $60. rate for the night. The room was not too bad although there was left over pop and drinking water in the fridge, which lead us to believe the housekeeping staff did not really do a good job there. The bathroom had a big dead spider behind the toilet. The bathtub had loose moulding around the tub and there was mold behind it. We decided not to take a bath or shower there that night. The only good point was that the manager went out of her way to try to accodomate us to a room. If you want a no frills place to go then this is your place.

We spent one night here on our ski trip and it was fantastic! Great price and the staff couldn't have been more terrific, even their cat was friendly!
The rate was very reasonable.
Gave us more towels no problem, lots of hot water for showers.
The heater was so powerful, it was only this little thing beside the air conditioner and it packed a whollop! I want one for my home! I love motels for the reason of actual light in the bathroom oppose to hotels!

We give this motel a 5 out of 5!!!!!

Thanks for a great stay!!
