“The night the lights went out in St. Martins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We arrived at the Tidal Watch Inn past 10:30 pm, St. Martins had no electricity (a car had hit an electrical pole), it was pitch dark black yet Rudy answered the door, gave us a room and suggested a walk down to the beach.
The room was lovely (not that big), the bathroom was nice and the balcony was great to sit out and look at the stars in the night. The walk to the beach was great.
The breakfast the next day was lovely also. If I am ever back in St. Martins I will definitely book a room at the Tidal Watch Inn.

We stayed one night at this B&B and I can't agree more with the previous reviewer. The room was so outdated and not clean. We found dead flies by the window and hair in the sink. The breakfast was so poor that I've never seen like that in the other B&Bs. It's true that you are not supposed to serve a full fruit breakfast but come on.. Have a second look at the plate before you serve it to the customer.. It was not worth it at all and not recommended.

I've delayed in responding to this "review". I'm sorry the guest did not like anything about our property, they certainly did not say anything to us or our staff. Our housekeepers ensure all our rooms are spotless, the rooms are cross checked and we especially check for hair anywhere, we also look for flies but our windows do open. Tidal Watch Inn has new guest rooms (9) constructed in the last 12 years, furniture and fittings include whirlpools, fireplaces etc. We also have a historical section that has 6 rooms. The historical section is in a house originally built in about 1900. Although these rooms are painted as required and furnishings replaced as required, we've tried to keep rooms reflective of the time however I agree some may see that as dated. We thought our pictures were reflective of the rooms character but we will add that these rooms are in our historical section to the pictures on our web site. Guests are able to choose from a full breakfast menu, including eggs your way, French Toast, PanCrepes with real maple syrup, toast and a choice of bacon or sausage links. We will also add pictures of our breakfasts to our site.

This was many years ago may be nice but now so poor. Our bathroom was on the street side without curtain for window!
Dirty room and bathroom. Windows can't be closed. Fruit at breakfast is just 1 smal piece of melon.
Owner: please remove the word luxuries because it isn't in 2013.

We're sorry these guests did not enjoy the stay in their room. I'm not sure how to best respond, the bathroom has a blind so guests have total privacy, the drapes are simply there to hide the blinds. You just can't make blackout blinds look good. We offer complimentary full breakfast choice from our menu, the fruit is not meant to be the whole breakfast. Our windows certainly do close, this is Canada and windows not closing would be a problem. I hope the rest of their vacation has more sun and less rain and they are able to enjoy the Maritimes.

This Inn is very, very rustic. It has the potential to be wonderful but needs alot of TLC to both interior and exterior. There were some problems with our reservations but they made it right. The owners seemed to be loved by their staff which says alot. The bedding was lovely but the futon was very worn and uncomfortable.

Room Tip: I thought I was getting a view of the Bay of Fundy, but only had a small view as other buildings wer...

We go to St Martins annually for business, and stay regularly at Tidal Watch Inn. Whether I'm there solo or with my family, I know I will be treated like royalty with every little detail taken care of. The rooms are spacious, clean and cozy - the views and meals are fantastic - but it's the wonderful people there, owners and staff, that keep me coming back! Just booked another wonderful room, and looking forward to it.

Room Tip: Plan to do the Fundy Trail, experience the sea caves and have some chowder while you're here. Th...

Rain or shine the Tidal Watch Inn is a great place to stay! The rooms are cozy. Rudy and Kathy are very gracious hosts who want to make sure you enjoy your stay. We were fortunate enough to be there the night they served fresh lobster for dinner. Fabulous!

The Tidal Watch Inn is an old home decorated in period pieces. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable. The owners and staff are very gracious and have lots of information to share about the history of the home, town, and natural wonders in the area.
