This is our second time staying at Midtrail and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The motel offers great value for the price and a consistently clean room! The staff are always very nice and accommodating with questions and small requests - such as a forgotten cork screw and ice for the room. A great location along the Cabot Trail - we... More

This place reminded me of many motels I stayed in when I was traveling with my family back in the 50's and 60's. Having said that, the location is perfect if you are driving the Cabot Trail. The rooms are clean and the staff is welcoming and friendly. It's reasonably priced and provides everything you need. I would recommend this... More

MidTrail Motel & Inn is in a beautiful location along the Cabot Trail. The motel itself as a little more rustic - the rooms are in need of a style overhaul, and our air conditioner rumbled like an outboard motor. The front doors of the rooms rattle the whole building when they close, and our television had green blur around... More

This motel provides a decent place to stay along the Cabot trail. It is not fancy or extraordinary in any way but considering the options are limited in Pleasant Bay it's good enough for a night. The room was a decent size and was clean, although there was a bit of an odd smell. The furnishings are very outdated and... More

The rooms that we stayed in were newly renovated. The room and the washroom were clean and tidy. The TV was small but still usable. There were some small details that could be fixed. But overall this is a nice place with awesome views. Very close to the ocean, nice little harbour to walk around, great location.

My parents and I ate here one evening because we were very happy to see that they had several vegetarian dishes. We enjoyed our pasta, salad, and quesadillas. There wasn't too much interaction with the staff and us though we were the only ones there, but I don't see this as a negative. I think they just let us enjoy... More

We stopped here while doing the Cabot trail and we were happy to take a break halfway through. The Cabot trail is beautiful but a little nerve-racking, so this motel was a little haven: it is out-dated and it could use some new furniture and sheets; however, it was clean, it was quiet and there was a beautiful view of...

We booked this motel after a misunderstanding with another property. We ended up at the initial property after booking this motel. The rooms here are good and very clean and we would have been happy to stay if our initial booking didn't come good. The staff here were wonderful in allowing us to cancel our booking after arrival.

Don't let first appearances put you off. Yes, the buildings are pink, and yes, it looks a little tired, but the MidTrail is actually a pretty nice place. I'd recommend the oceanview rooms - I think they were about $20 more, but well worth it. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The TV worked, mattress is showing its... More

The view definitely makes up for the motel. The bed wasn't very comfy, the carpet was dirty, and the tv is an old tube tv. For the hotel being $100.00, I wouldn't say it's worth that at all. The view definitely makes up for it as we got the ocean view for 84.99 plus tax. The ocean view is nice... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in between the mountains of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and overlooking the sea, Pleasant Bay & the Midtrail showcase some of the best scenery that the Cabot Trail has to offer. All rooms are fully renovated and the restaurant serves a great selection of tasty dishes including Lobster, Mussels, Snow Crab & Scallops as well as a variety of other choices to accommodate most preferences. World class whale watching is just a short walk away and the hill behind the restaurant or the private beach below serve as amazing places to take in the incredible sunsets as they dip into the sea each night. ... more   less
