When I called to find an hotel in Baddeck, a few months ago, everything was booked and we had to chose the Telegraph House which still had a few rooms.
The Telegraph House is an hotel/motel but they don't usually report they're a motel.
Rooms in the main building (a Victorian house ???) were all rented so they gave us a cabin on the side. The cabin (they're two by two rooms) was on a very small piece of land. So the view from our balcony was on trucks, cars and - far away - the sea.
I don't like Baddeck because it's to crowded with tourists. The cabin was musty and very small. The price was rather high for what we got. Unfortunately, we had booked for three nights. The breakfast was to be paid apart. The staff or most of it, just polite. No charm,
Fortunately, we nade friends with a couple of Sarnia, two cabins away. Our direct neighbours (we had two in three days) weren't friendly at all while it's difficult not to talk to each other when you're just steps away from them.
So, no great experience in Baddeck except a nice lunch at Inverary Lodge. But that, is another story...
