The place is clearly overpriced! We paid 129$ without breakfast and came from a superb B&B where we paid 140$ including the best breakfast ever. So, no comparison there. The view on the front is good but that's about all that can be said on the positive side. The rooms are OK but very basic p, but ours ( room... More

We spent one night here before we set out to drive the Cabot Trail. The room was clean and had a nice view of the river. The parking is very close to the rooms and the check-in process was seamless. WiFi worked well and sadly it was too cold to enjoy the scenic balcony. The interior is very dated; we... More

When we arrived we were welcomed and not only was check in easy and quick, but when we enquired about a few other touristy things in the area we were given a completed break down and maps of the area, the gentleman at the check in desk was very friendly and ensured our visit was all that we needed it...

This is a nice water side inn, like a road side motel in the states. However, you get much more. The rooms are comfortable and the staff wonderful. Our first time in the area. Gordon gave us great suggestions for our Cabot trail visit, while they have a restaurant, he suggested a nearby resort restaurant for our desire to have... More

We came in late and were greeted with welcome arms. Check in was seamless and hassle free. Free wifi and great service! The room was very clean and well furnished (if a bit dated both in furniture and walls). Was very impressed! Plugs in the room were limited though and there was no phone to reach the front desk if...

We had a lovely big room with a large balcony looking out over the water. Although it's all a bit dated everything is very clean and our room was properly maintained each day. The dinner menu was good and the staff very attentive. Sunday brunch was something else. What a marvellous choice of great food. No wonder so many locals... More

We did not intend being this far past cheticamp but ended staying just one night and we are glad we did. Sure, the decor is a little dated but the rooms are impeccably clean and I found the beds very comfortable. It's really all you need in a roadside motel. The breakfast menu was excellent and well made. Recommended.

Two couples stayed one night. This motel has been there for quite a long time but is very well maintained and is in an excellent location. Comfy beds with upgraded linens. We had adjoining decks overlooking the Margaree River/Harbour bridge. Lots of interesting short drives in all three directions from this location. Get up early and drive along the Margaree... More

As other reviewers have stated, this is an older property with decor and furniture from the 60"s, which I don't mind, except the beds were rock hard and small. There is no air conditioner. Neither of us slept well and that's all we were looking for...a good night's sleep. The rooms were noisy - I could hear our neighbour snoring.... More
