This place is clean, convienient, and decent value. We stayed here on the way to the Port aux Basques ferry and on the way back. I had left a nightgown on our first visit and just figured I lost it and that was that. Upon our return visit my nightgown was not only still here, it had been laundered and was in our room! I cant imagine any chain providing that kind of service or thoughtfulness under any circumstance. Highly recommended.

This motel was well-located for exploring Cape Breton. The sheets were older and rough to the touch, but the price rate was very reasonable. Staff was also friendly. No air conditioning, but the windows have screens and are kept open, and a cool breeze did enter at night. I would stay here again.

Good morning, thanks for taking the time to comment. Weather permitting the sun and wind dry all our laundry on the lines. Please mention this to us when you come back and I'll make sure we put new sheets on your beds. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and would be happy to see you again in the future. All the best and safe travels.

The room was spotless, the beds comfortable, good showers with plenty of water pressure, even the in-room coffee was good! Motorcyclists who just want to ride the Cabot Trail and have a quiet peaceful evening, this is the place to go! Had a very tasty dinner at Fitzgerald’s next door, then watched a stunning sunset with great coffee. The folks at the lobby were friendly and accommodating of our truck and trailer space requirements...and they even gave me real cream for my coffee instead of the in-room coffee mate. The cherry on top??? Price vs value unbeatable!!

Beautifully crafted floral hanging baskets outside the office were the first hint that I was going to like this motel. 🌸 Wonderful scenery all around. Audrey was a most gracious host, very friendly, checking us into Room 12. A big CLEAN room, very comfy queen bed with crisp linens, fridge, and a coffee maker that allows you to make a small pot, rather than a single cup. Big windows let the breeze in - this place is a great bargain for under $100. Bonus - there’s a terrific restaurant to have dinner at right next door !! That’s another review - Fitzgerald’s. I would not hesitate to return. *Unfortunately, Kelly’s View doesn’t pop up on a TripAdvisor search of this region* - it should. It’s a real treasure

Thanks for the wonderful review, I have no idea why we don't show up - have asked many times and they keep saying they will check into it but unfortunately it hasn't happened yet???? It was nice meeting you both and sharing begonia stories, we wish you all the best and hope you visit us when you make the trek East again. I think I hear Newfoundland calling you!!!!!

We stayed at Kelly's View Motel for two nights during a recent family trip to Cape Breton with our two kids. We had a room with two double beds. This is a very clean, well-maintained motel. The owners clearly have a sense of pride in their business, and all staff we interacted with were friendly and welcoming. The location of the motel is just a few minutes past the Seal Island Bridge, and about 15 minutes to North Sydney. There is a restaurant next door that we didn't have a chance to try. (It only opens at 11am so no breakfast option - we ended up driving into North Sydney both days for breakfast, although there may be closer options.) The beds were firm but comfortable enough, and there was minimal noise from other units, or the highway, overnight. The pillows were quite thin. The room had a microwave and mini-fridge. The bathroom was on the small side with not enough storage. While showering, the water temperature and pressure would change suddenly (likely caused by guests in other rooms using water in their rooms), which was a nuisance but not a deal-breaker. Overall we were pleased with our stay and would happily stay again for a night or two.
