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.

The first impression is the messy front office that reeks of stale cigarette smoke. the nicest thing I can say about the room itself is that it was clean; however it is just a sad dreary little room in desparate need of some TLC. I guess it falls into the category of "You get what you pay for"

The idea of a cheap place with all you can play PS3 games sounded pretty awesome. So we booked a room. Our room wasn't the most up-dated, but that was fine. The dishes in the cabinet though were very dusty and some dishes were not cleaned very well; needless to say - take out the entire time. So that was... More

I have stayed at this Motel on a few occasions for work, and I have never been more impressed by a hotel/motel that didn't belong to a chain. The buildings, decor, and furnishing aren't the most current, but the rooms are always spotless and comfortable. The location is perfect and peaceful, and the added touch of the Playstation 3 in...
