It was dated but reasonably clean and comfortable. It was a good location as we stayed in Truro for the tidal bore rafting and it was an easy drive. Downtown, Victoria park and a decent pub &restaurant where a 20min walk. It also had a small pool. Good value for money.

For the money spent , I can see why the ratings here are as good as they are. My daughter and I stayed up later than we should have , playing FIFA14 on the PS3! What a hoot! Two double beds were comfy and generally the room was clean. The smell reminded me of my grandparents house when I was... More

We spent one night here on our our way through the maritime. The place was a bit dated but clean and quiet - fridge and coffee maker available as well as picnic tables and BBQs (2 gas ones I believe) for those inclined to cook something up. There is a nice grassy field that extends to a little marshy inlet... More

A friend and I were in Truro for a convention and were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay. I found this on Expedia and thought the location was good. It was okay. Very dated but it did the job of providing a place to sleep for the night. There was a nice diner type restaurant next door and... More

Clean, not fancy but very comfortable. Good service with everything I needed during the three nights and four days I was there. I could have paid a lot more elsewhere locally for the big names. The perfect place for business travel.

It's like a step back to the '40's, but it's clean quiet and a good value. Bring cash or checkbook, because they don't have credit card facilities. A(at the desk) round out the offerings. Take the owner's dinner recomendation, and you will get some great places to eat.

Make no mistake, this is an old-style motel of the 1960s vintage, but it is kept in good condition and shows pride of ownership in cleanliness and service. It is a family-run business and the owner is very hands-on, going out of his way to explain procedures and assist with setting up the DVD player etc. The extensive DVD collection... More

Very organized and helpful owner. Super technology set up. Movies and games. Great TV, Pool. and all around great value. On top of this one of the cheaper motels we stayed in in NS. Only about 5 minutes off of the transit routes connecting all of NS with the mainland.
