Stayed here for just one night when touring Cape Breton; had Room 5 in the motel part of the property. Located just along the main road, it was easy enough to find. It offers nice accommodations with adequate parking. Our room was quite big with 2 beds, and came with a fan, a desk, a mini fridge and a private... More

We stayed at Merry's for 3 nights as a base for exploring Cape Breton Highland National Park. We were allocated a motel room rather than a room in the b&b in the main house so can't comment on the latter. Our room was spacious, rather basic but adequate for our needs. It got quite chilly at night but adjusting the... More

We were in Cheticamp for 3 nights and we get tired of restaurant food so we got the apartment. It fit our needs well. We were able to cook a few things. The kitchen had plenty of cookware so we could have done even more cooking. The bedroom is upstairs (steep and narrow stairs if you have a problem with... More

We booked the apartment for 2 days and found an immaculately clean and well furnished suite that felt just like home.d The kitchen had every dish/amenity we could have hoped for and we were able to cook full meals for our family of 4. The breakfast was self-serve and perfect for our needs - the dining room is beautiful as... More

We stopped here before heading into the Cape Breton Island National Park so we only stayed for one night. The motel was very affordable but offered a nice room plus breakfast in the owner's house. We looked right at the water from our room. It was not a large place but the room itself was very good and we were... More

There were six or seven rooms all facing the water. There was a fridge, wifi, hair dryer, large bed and ample room to move around. Restaurants very close and on the main street of town. Parking one hundred feet away. Drop off luggage at the door. Breakfast in main house was toast or baked goods and coffee. Very inexpensive, $70,... More

This was an overall pleasant motel in a good location. Very clean with comfortable beds. Dog friendly at no extra charge. Excellent value - very reasonably priced. Continental breakfast was fine considering the reasonable rate. Did not feel dated as others have said. Highly recommended for a short visit.

This is a great little motel. Its very neat and clean, rates are reasonable, there are water views and it is within walking distance to restaurants. They allow dogs but the room did not have any pet odors. I would stay here again in a minute and it is probably one of the best finds in Cheticamp.

I stayed 1 night here. I had a simple room with a shared bathroom. Everything was very clean, bed fine and WIFI worked well. Housekeeper was very nice and helpful. Basic breakfast was provided. Good value for a short stay. Would only recommend that smoking not be allowed on the front porch.
