On my way back through to New Brunswick and stopped in New Glasgow for the evening. This motel had very comfy beds and a decent continental breakfast in the morning. It is also about $40-50 cheaper than the hotel chains up the road and was more homey. Glad I stopped!

I stayed for one night in June. Overall it was a good stay. Room came with air conditioning. It was clean and quiet. Only complaints I have are the lack of window coverings in the bathroom and secondly housekeeping staff came to my room to clean without knocking three times before check out time. It was better priced compared to... More

Stayed there one night with my wife on the way to Cape Breton. Check in was good, room were clean, nothing fancy. Included breakfast is what i would eat home, toast, jelly, peanut butter. they had juice, frozen waffles, etc in the fridge. They also had fresh fruits. Very good inexpensive stop.

Stayed one night while heading for the Marine Atlantic ferry. No complaints with this location. Breakfast was included in the price and the bed was very comfortable. If you have a motorcycle the owners cater to drivers. All in all, I would stay her again.

I was in New Glasgow for the annual Johnny Miles race and decided to stay in town the night before instead of driving up from Halifax early in the morning. This place was close to downtown and priced low so I stayed here. It's in a convenient location, only a couple km from downtown, across the street from a Shoppers... More

The location was very convenient; Mark and Cheryl were very helpful, friendly and professional.; The room was quiet, clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. Breakfast was as good or better than found in the big-name hotels. As someone else stated, this is "one of those hidden gems" that is often missed when looking for a place to stay. Would definitely recommend.
