We spent three nights at the Merry's. It's a simple motel, clean and with comfortable beds. It is centrally located, walking distance to some restaurants (Harbour Restaurant is nice, The Happy Clam has very good breakfast). Contrary to other reviewers, we did not find the hosts particularly friendly.

This is in the heart of Cheticamp, on the main road, but set back so you don't get any street noise. The rooms have nice double beds, pleasantly decorated, clean and with a fridge. The air conditionning worked perfectly. There is a light breakfast which is really just coffee, muffins and toast but coffee was welcome at the beginning of... More

Friendly owner who was very accommodating to our travel schedule. We wanted to take a whale watching tour but unsure on timing due to weather. Room was basic and clean. Served a light breakfast. Was very happy to have our dogs stay. Close to everything in town.

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 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
