Stayed 2 nights with Ron and his wife at Kelly's View. Both were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was clean, warm, and had satellite tv on a flat screen. Beds were rather firm and not my idea of comfortable, but was nice to have a quiet place to rest my head to continue on the road trip!

The place is great - large, clean, nice soaps, thick Toilet tissue, lots of lamps too. Now here's what sets this place apart - a big power outlet box so we can finally plug in everything that needs recharging each night! This is our 25th day of driving across Canada and the 1st day we're not juggling or unplugging stuff... More

Loved this place. It was clean, comfy & quiet. The staff were all wonderful. Everything worked ( lights, fan, microwave, fridge, tv), and the shower pressure is great. There is a restaurant next door, but it is pricey. The motel is about 1/2 hour away from the Cabot trail, 25 mins from Sydney (10 from North Sydney) and less than... More

Kelly's View motel was very clean, had great service and was wonderfully priced. Although we only stayed for one night, we really appreciated the beautiful view in the morning. We were having trouble finding last minute accommodations at night, so we were relieved to find that Kelly's View had a room available and it wasn't too far off of the... More

My wife and I stayed at this motel in early September 2016 and enjoyed our stay. It was during a rare hot and humid period and without air conditioning in the room it was difficult to get cool. Seems many motels in Nova Scotia think it's unnecessary to have A/C in the rooms but on days like these a hundred... More

Thank you for commenting. We unfortunately have found it a little more complicated to install a/c than we thought and have provided rooms with stay up fans. Those first days in September were brutal due to the humidity coming up from the States. Take care and enjoy the rest of your time on the Island. More

We stayed here during our three day getaway over the long weekend! We were met by extremely friendly staff/owners and given the keys to our clean, comfortable room. The view was so beautiful that took my glass of wind and just sat on the chairs provided just to relax and enjoy the scenery. It was a wonderful way to end... More

Friendly owners, great location. Very clean and lovely overall. The beds were nice and comfortable. The view is of the river and the cliff edge which is really nice. We had breakfast at the place next door which was delicious and well priced! Very pleased !!

Stayed there for a night during our visit to Cape Breton. The motel is on Trans Canada just after Seal Island bridge. Rooms were clean and well appointed. There is a restaurant next to motel, though we did not go there. Staff was really helpful in explaining everything.

Clean, comfortable room within easy distance to the NL ferry. Restaurant onsite or walk down the road to another. Good view over the river. No highway noise guaranteeing a quiet night's sleep, especially as there are only 15 units.

Kelly's View motel is on Highway 105, about 15 minutes west from the North Sydney ferry terminal (for Newfoundland ferry) and the same distance east of the Cabot Trail.
