This is a semi budget hotel with assigned parking outside your door. The rooms are clean but nothing fancy, bathrooms are small with a smaller shower (narrow with no elbow room), and each room has AC and a ceiling fan. There is free WiFi and breakfast is excellent for only $3.50 (no menu, same for everyone). The lady that runs... More

This has to have been the best place we stay the whole time we were in Nova Scotia and we stayed at the Four Points Sheridan in Halifax and The Dundee resort to mention two. The Allen's Motel was the cleanest place we have ever stayed at, bright clean rooms, I am sure they must have redone the bathrooms as... More

On first impressions, this motel lived up to its (mostly) rave reviews. The room was in the new part of the complex, clean, fresh and spacious. We were able to park the car right outside the room making it very convenient to transfer luggage upstairs. However, upon retiring to bed the "security" light outside our bedroom window floodlit the entire... More

Our family stayed at the Allen Motel during the Gunn Tournie. We stayed in Room 8 which had two double beds, microwave, fridge. The room was spotless and quite large. We also enjoyed the breakfast for 3.50. It was absolutely lovely. We will definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed an extra night! Wonderfully quaint motel that has been maintained to high standards! Exceptionally clean, with excellent beds and well stocked kitchen. Excellent customer service from check in to check out! We arrived in unusual 30 degree weather and Joanne and Michael, the very gracious owners made sure the A/C had... More

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in June. This is a lovely family run motel--older, but beautifully kept and extremely clean with good beds and very quiet at night. All your needs are anticipated before you even ask. The friendly owners provide a lovely, home-cooked breakfast in their home with all the amenities--homemade jams, locally-sourced eggs, bacon...

This was one of the most disgusting places I have ever stayed. We had 4 rooms in our group at the motel and the 3 that were in the old building smelled awful. As soon as you enter the room there was an overpowering odour. I couldn't find any source for this awful smell. All three rooms had their own... More

Allensmotel, Owner at Allen's Motel, responded to this review

We are very sorry your stay with us was such an unpleasant experience. It is most unfortunate you encountered an odour in the rooms, something no-one else in your group ever brought to our attention but something which has since been investigated. We did move you from the original unit you were assigned, at your request, to another room which... More

We were very impressed on how clean the rooms were. We were in a room upstairs. The owner was very nice, helpful. She serves breakfast for $3.50, which we didn't try. I would stay here again and recommend it to everyone. A parking stall is assigned to each room, so you are parked close to your room. It was a... More

Quiet location. Well kept modern rooms and cottages. Kitchen was well stocked. Beds comfortable. Laundry on site is clean and all in working condition. Our cottage had a lovely private deck. Staff very friendly and helpful.

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in to our room at Allen's Motel. We just planned on a quick overnight stay in Kentville so weren't looking to book in anywhere overly expensive. Well this little motel was not only reasonably priced at $72.00 plus tax a night, it was also well looked after from the room to the grounds.... More
