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. The motel is on a hill overlooking the St Andrew's Channel and Kelly's Mountain beyond. Rooms were spacious and had a fridge and coffee maker. Nice touches: the best quality bedsheets... More

After driving for more then 5 hours, I was less then thrill when I was told they have not installed the air conditioning in the rooms, but had fans. I was promised that the night would be cooled.

We spent 3 days at Kelly's View Motel on our way to the Ferry...which is only 15 minutes away. Audrey and her husband were the best. Audrey was always available for any questions and offered great suggestions for local activities that were happening in the area. The room was spotless, beds and pillows comfortable. The view was lovely, close to... More

The cleanest place I've ever stayed. The motel was so quiet and restful. Owners are extremely kind. The view is gorgeous, with views of Kelly's Mountain. Rooms have satellite cable. A great place to stay if you're passing through Nova Scotia.

My father and I stayed here in early June 2016, having driven across Labrador and Newfoundland and taken the ferry from Newfoundland. We were very happy with our stay. The proprietor met us as we checked in and recommended a place for dinner, and our room was just what we needed, with a clean bathtub, coffee maker, and refrigerator.

A friend and I were passing through Nova Scotia later than anticipated, and needed a place to stay. We looked through several options, and thought Kelly's View looked like the best value for the price. It was an excellent decision! The staff was incredibly accommodating, and graciously allowed us to check in 45 minutes after their normal desk hours. The... More

This was the first time I have stayed in a roadside "mom-and-pop" motel in probably 15 years. And Kelly's View did not disappoint. Very comfortable stay. The woman who checked me in did something which I thought was brilliant. She handed me the TV remote and explained the basics of turning on and using the TV system. I got to... More
