A decent hotel, with standard rooms. Everything is clean so no issues. Front desk staff a efferent and courteous. The main issue is a lack of an elevator. This is a three story hotel and stairs are impossible if you have luggage. Rooms on the 100 are at ground floor in the rear facing the parking lot. Rooms on the... More

A hotel I would really recommend. Loved our room; comfortable beds and clean, nicely decorated. Pub style restaurant with excellent menu - delicious maple glazed pork loin. The staff were all very knowledgeable and friendly.

We stayed in a large, well appointed, comfortable room that met all but one of our needs. The air conditioner was noisy could not adequately cool or dehumidify our room. It was a hot and humid night and accordingly sleeping was uncomfortable.

On the plus side, our room (#305) was large, had a comfortable king size bed and a couch, desk, large TV, mini fridge, coffee maker and ironing board, and the bathroom was functional and clean (although the bathroom fan was extremely loud and it went on automatically when we turned on the light). On the minus side, the carpet in... More

The Atlantic Seafood Chowder was excellent with lots of scallops, salmon, shrimp celery , onion, potatoes. Full of flavour in a cream broth. Service was excellent. Roomy for large groups. Also enjoyed there thin crust pizza and spinach salad. Both full of flavour also. This restaurant is located at the Maritime Inn.

I booked this hotel as I thought that it would be in a good location while we spent a few days exploring Cape Breton. The hotel is OK, dated in some areas and the rooms were small (though the bed was comfortable). There is definitely no view to be had here and there are limited parking spots out front so... More

A nice clean hotel,quick check in and the most comfortable bed I have slept on in quite a while.The only concern was we could not get the room cooled sufficiently,location is excellent,right on the Main Street with a grocery store and MacDonald's right across the street.I would certainly recommend this hotel if something takes you to Port Hawksbury.

We were pleasantly surprised by both a good room and a good meal. The room was nice and comfortable and the recently reopened restaurant was above average. Ask for a ground level room to make life easier as far as carrying luggage etc.
