Trying to pick a place for your first time in an area is difficult but the Maritime Inn did no disappoint. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Some areas of the hotel seemed to be under some construction outside but did not affect our stay. They have an excellent restaurant on the grounds and hotel chef does an excellent job in... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2016

I really loved the stay at this Motel. Clean rooms and very comfortable beds. The shampoo and soap furnished in the room were very nice to use: most of the time I don't even mention it but this time, I really loved it. The people there were very welcoming and kind. The Miller's Bar and Grill was closed so we... More

A friend helped us to book a room at the Maritime Inn in Port Hawesbury because we couldn't find a place on our travels towards Cape Breton. The Inn was a wonderful place to come to after a long day of travel. The beds are super comfy, the room was exceptionally clean and appointed, and the staff were very helpful,... More

It appears that most of the guests, like us, stay here as they pass through from one place to another. It is an older property but I commend the hotel on keeping the rooms fresh and updated. When we checked in, we were told they were full for the night and only had rooms that are on the side of... More

We booked a king room for one night and were pleasantly surprised by how roomy it was. This was after being an extra 12 hours on the Argentia to North Sydney ferry, so the extra room was very appreciated. The receptionists (both evening and morning) were very welcoming and helpful, and the room was clean and quiet. The swimming pool... More
