Basic motel rooms set back from the main road – we stayed in unit 5. Clean room, beds were comfortable enough for the price ($80 per night), decent shower, frig and satellite TV. There was a “light” breakfast included – coffee or tea, muffin or toast, and a banana. Not expected at this price point! Wifi was iffy, we could... More

Nothing fancy here, but it's clean, it's quiet and it's comfortable. Everything works, the hostess is friendly and efficient...and she makes very good coffee in the morning. Also: we chose it because the hotel welcomes pets. Our labrador enjoyed the stay also.

My wife and I stayed here for one night while taking the Cabot Trail. The room was very clean and well kept. The view from the porch was nice and Sue helped with restaurant recommendations. Breakfast did the trick and the price was right. You can't go wrong with Merry's Motel.

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
