We stopped at the Trailsman on our way to PEI. There was a huge power outrage in the Cape Breton area but that caused no big problems. We had a handicap accessible room (#55) which gives a great view of the water. There are ample grab bars in the bathroom but there is a standard-height bathtub, making it somewhat difficult... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Trailsman in mid-August. I selected the motel because of good reviews on Tripadvisor. The motel has a great location on the shore of the Bras d’Or Lake. The bed was comfortable and the manager had an interest in engaging with his guests. Unfortunately the rest of our experience was not... More

The motel is conveniently located off the Trans Canada Highway and has a terrific view of the lake in the back. It's no frills accommodations and dated but is relatively clean for an overnight stay on your travels. A simple continental breakfast is provided in the dining area which appears to be the most updated part of the facilities. It's... More

Although it is not quite the caliber of hotels I am used to staying in, it was still a great place to stay. The staff went above and beyond to provide us with what we needed, wanted and didn't have. The rooms do need some upgrading as its old but I believe they are planning to do that. These are... More

We stopped there as every other hotel or Bnb was full. Well the view is great but besides that...old mattress with old bedspread with hair that wasn't ours on it. There was a dime and hairpin on the the rug. Old TV up on the wall and shampoo in little envelopes difficult to open along clean but grayish towels. With... More

Some people may find this place okay to stay, I did not. Now i am not one of those people that is really picky but this place wasn't a place i will go back to. The walls had dead bugs, it was noisy and whoever said it was clean? Well i have higher standards. I will NOT be back

Stopped here on our way to the Cabot Trail. When we arrived it took the gentleman in the back about ten minutes to greet us because he was napping (which he admitted). Once we got our room key we went to check it out. The room was out dated but whatever we aren't picky......then the smell hit us. It literally... More

The owner is kind and friendly, and as he just moved to the area two months ago, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt by saying he hasn't had time yet to make the improvements he knows need to happen. When we checked in and found out there was no playpen (which had been confirmed to us for an... More

Stayed at this older motel for one night with family. Motel rooms was clean, bug free (this is important to members of my house) and convenient off main highway. Air conditioner was noisy as hell but owner was kind and accommodating which made up for it. Breakfast was standard fare for motel rate. Not a bad value based on the... More
