If you enjoy the sounds of WW2 heavy bombers you'll enjoy the noises coming from the air conditioning units in this motel. Very basic room at midrange prices but at high season what are your choices for last minute bookings? Desk clerk recommended local restaurant for breakfast - (good food but restaurant staff tried to rip-off for double + the... More

Greg L, Owner at Cornerstone Motel, responded to this review

Hi halwetherup, It seems your experience was less than what we had hoped and less that everybody else experiences here, and that is unfortunate. Had you informed the front desk of your air conditioner issues we would have tried to place you in another room or correct the problem, but if you clearly felt it was not necessary to let... More

This place was recommended by a couple of motorcyclists, so I called and booked a room, clean, comfortable, price was o.k. but remember you are in a tourist trap area, both Greg and Cathy were very helpful as we showed up with a broken floor board after a hit from a 4x4 piece of lumber, Greg went to his "tickle...

The deluxe river view room was worth the extra cost. The huge window shows just the river and trees. There is also a fridge, microwave and table with 2 chairs. The entrance to Cape Breton Park is just across the bridge so even though you are some distance from restaurants and town; you can get an early start on hiking... More

This motel has no extras such as fridge, the furniture is older, beds not that comfortable. Renovated bathrooms are nice. Priced a bit high for lack of amenities. Too far to walk to town. Service was fine. Perhaps I expect a bit too much for a motel.

A group of my cousins and friends do an annual motorcycle trip around the Cabot Trail. We "discovered" the Cornerstone in 2013 just after the current owners bought it. It was definitely "a diamond in the rough" at that point but Greg (the proprietor) was friendly and enthusiastic about their plans for the place. Flash forward three years and our... More

Nice large clean, updated room with a view of the river. Very peaceful. Convenient to the Cabot Trail. The owners are very friendly and helpful with great advice regarding places to eat and visit. I would recommend this motel to anyone staying in the area. It is a great value.

Great motel in a beautiful location. It was very quiet and clean, timely room cleaning service. The ground are well groomed. A great place to spend a restful evening. It is close to all restaurants. We enjoyed the whale watching trip.

The couple who run the place make every effort to ensure your stay is pleasant. We had a good night's sleep between nice clean sheets. They will also help you figure out things like beaches or where to eat.

Wonderful location with great views and just close enough to everything. Owners were extremely helpful and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived - it was like visiting old friends! They helped us discover activities in the area, recommended local restaurants that were less touristic for a more local feel and even help us start a fire to... More

I just read the recent reviews and I can only second the positive comments they have made. We stayed there in mid-June on the first warm day of the year. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable. The motel is not fancy, but is in great shape and comfortable. Everything we hoped for. If we ever get the opportunity to... More
