Room had a pronounced, musty odour when we arrived. An air purifier and dehumidifier were both running full blast. Air quality improved by the second day (though a slight mustiness persisted); fortunately the weather was such that we could leave the window wide open most of the time. We were in one of the large (queen plus two singles) rooms... More

We booked on line and went to the room. My sister, 89 year old mother and my self. The room was sooooo musty that you could stand it. They gave us another room and the same results. We all know what mold smells like. To make a long story short the motel would not refund us for the roomt and... More

It was a terrible stay indeed. The room including the carpets was stinky due to mustiness, and smelling the bed sheets was unbearable. The room was not clean. in the room were mosquitos and bugs. The supposed to be white clean towels were worn out and grey. The acoustic insulation was terrible and we could hear any movement in the... More

Basically, the Trailsman Motel, 10 minutes drive from Baddeck, Nova Scotia, is a standard, run of the mill motel. BUT what makes it that bit better is the flexibility of the staff. We arrived a bit out of sorts (me, not Julia, wife) because I thought the motel was in or near Baddeck, not 10 mins away, but the owner... More

This is an older hotel with basic amenities. It is clean and comfortable. Its location only feet away from the lakes is unbeatable. The price is appropriate for the location. Some rooms include a continental breakfast. Others do not. Its best to clarify this when checking in.

This appears to be an older motel, but it is in excellent condition. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The grounds are nicely kept and there is a beautiful view of the lake from our windows. The way the motel is situated, it appears that all the rooms would have a lake view. Check in was efficient and quick.... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Trailsman Inn. We were in room 36 (a smoke-free room), which accommodated the 3 of us nicely. The room had 2 beds, a fridge, TV, coffee maker, free WiFi and a view of the lake. There was an outdoor pool, which we didn't use. There is a laundry room, and the staff were polite... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights and the hotel staff were really very nice. The location is perfect as it is just at the start of the cabot trail. Breakfast is continental and good. Would definitely recommend this to the travelers who are looking for value for money.
