Cheticamp is an interesting fishing village in an interesting location and Laurie's to the is the one obvious place for a group of any size to stay in Cheticamp. This is a large seasonal complex of three or more buildings that was built over many years. The quality of the rooms varies. Rm 34 in the Highland building has a... More

Stayed at Laurie's on recommendation of friends. Clean, quiet older property (at least the section where we stayed ) but had everything we needed. TV reception wasn't good in the rain, and the wifi was pretty slow. Restaurant on the property has free breakfast buffet, but oddly was only open every other night for dinner. Luckily, there are lots of... More

In an establishment like this....all good...EXCEPT the Wireless Internet is NO GOOD. They claim they have high-speed internet......WRONG. With today's availability of high-speed internet from various suppliers, there is definitely something wrong with this place.

Have now stayed in 7 Hotels in Nova Scotia and PEI. Did not anticipate a great Hotel but was disappointed that room was badly in need of a facelift. Hotel still has sheets and blankets, surely it is about time they introduced duvets. Bathroom had chipped enamel wash basins. Everything was very 1970s. Breakfast was OK but no more than... More

We were travelling with a Caravan bus tour and our tour director had kindly asked all of us who would prefer a room on the ground level due to mobility problems (we were a bus full of mostly senior citizens, so the likelihood of wanting to avoid stairs was prime). Our room was in the Highlander building on the ground... More

Based on positive reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to have the breakfast buffet - don't do it! The food is of poor quality and definitely not worth $12.95 per person. The food is flavorless and lukewarm. Try somewhere else! (We've been traveling for almost a week and this has been our most disappointing meal by far.)

Cheticamp is a small fishing village of Acadian decent. It is one of the stops on a Caravan tour. Not many motels in this small town but this one is modest by big city standards but works very well in the small town. Run by a couple and they were very friendly and accomodating. We had a good stay there.... More

This motor inn is average in many regards, but it is clean and comfortable. The hot breakfast included with the room is quite good, buffet style. A warning for those using the stairs to climb to the 2nd level rooms: Not only are the stairs narrow but a few have been worn right down with pieces broken off and simply... More

We had two rooms. - One King and one with two queens. Very comfortable, friendly staff and very clean. Even though the rooms seemed outdated in look - the hotel and rooms are fully functional for business or family needs. Laundromat on-site. Full breakfast included with all rooms. Wish there were more Gems like this in the area.

In this Arcadian little fishing village you will find this motel. I would say a little lost in time, but fits the area setting. The hotel consist of several buildings, containing oversize rooms which appear to be decorated in the 70's or 80's but all are very Clean. We stayed here with a tour group and enjoyed it very much.... More
