We were looking for this type of property when we booked The Cove Motel. The room was clean and we appreciated the fact the property is off the highway. We did have an issue with our room but it was quickly resolved. The restaurant was much more than we expected! Overall, we were very satisfied with our 2 night stay... More

My son and I tend to stay in full service hotels but with no vacancies we were directed to the Cove Motel. I was curious as in reviews it seemed much like the motels my parents took me and sisters to as kids. It was like an updated version. Mini fridge, flat screen TV A/C great restaurant, comfy beds, laundry... More

Convenient jumping off point to the Cape Breton Trail, clean, comfortable rooms. The location is very scenic, despite the power lines that are hard to ignore. The restaurant is very good. Overall a good value experience.

We make the trip to the Cove Motel once a year sometimes twice a year. We love the area, the employees are fabulous, the room is clean, the view is awesome. The food was delicious and the service was great.

Stayed one night travelling through. Location is right on water and minutes from various amenities by CB causeway. I stayed in motel section, and found the rooms to be very well furnished and fitted out, very clean, and with comfortable bed. Much better quality than most motels (although also 20-25% more expensive). WiFi available, but was slow. Restaurant was great;... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and our friendly staff! We actually just upgraded our internet and now have a connection that is 8x better than our old one. However, to be safe, we left the existing infrastructure in place, and you may have connected to the old system. That is my fault, and as of yesterday I have put... More

While I initially anticipated a dive based on the exterior, the Cove Motel offered several pleasant surprises. There was a great view almost everywhere and this hotel seems to play this up, having transparent doors as well as a convenient bench in front of our room where we could relax and look out at the strait. The reception is a... More

May 27-29 2016. Our Dart League (40+attendees) recently stayed at the Cove and the pictures of this Motel tell it all. The rooms were very comfortable, warm and clean. The restaurant gives a visitor a vista view of the Canso Strait while enjoying a great meal at a fair price. The group especially liked the early breakfast special. Though it... More
