Motel is conveniently located on the trans Canada right next to the Bras D'or Lakes. Rooms are dated but very clean. Small kitchen area with microwave, fridge, coffee maker and table and chairs. Owner was pleasant and very helpful. Reasonably priced.

Excellent small motel on the Trans Canada Highway (rte 104) next to the Bras d'or lakes. Very traditional and very pleasant room with wi-fi, small kitchen area and free parking out front. Only a few miles to the small town.

Definitely a no frills motel. Pretty clean but very, very dated. Our room (#1) had a really musty, stale smoke smell. Fridge microwave wifi (very slow) table and TV in our room. Laundry was also available which we desperately needed. Only $1.50 a load (honour system) and $0.50 a dry (needed 2-3 cycles to fully dry). Staff was extremely friendly... More

The room had a musty smell and the bed was not very comfortable. The wi Fii was slow and did not always work. The room did have a table and fridge and microwave and staff was very friendly and the grounds were very nice.

No frills, but clean and comfortable. Room#7 had a queen sized bed, fridge, coffee maker and microwave. The office did offer free ice upon request. Free internet, but very slow connection. Local restaurant information was provided in room.Located midway between Baddeck and Mabou.

Bed was comfortable and the room was really clean but small. The bathroom was well set out with an awesome shower and plenty of hot water. The wifi was slow or no existent. The area was quiet even though the motel is on a main road.

Nice no frills motel located outside of town. Our room had two beds, a table & chairs, microwave, coffee pot, tub/shower and sink. This motel has easy access to your vehicle as you park your car or motorcycle right outside your door. We were on a motorcycle trip and found this place was good to start our trip on Cabot... More

We stayed here on a motorcycle tour of Cape Breton. It is an older mid-century vintage motel that has been well maintained. It is about 15 miles to Baddeck and on a busy highway so there is traffic noise. It is clean with comfortable beds and plenty of hot water so a good road warrior stop. No restaurants nearby. No...

Aberdeen motel is comfortable and clean and in a convenient location - it really is the perfect place to stay when entering the Cabot Trail. The motel's staff is sweet and friendly and made us feel at home. I'd definitely stay here again.
