Double room was large enough with fridge, coffee maker, two matching chairs, flat screen TV, small clothes rod with hangers, fan, and small end tables. It is not brand new, but you are not paying 'brand-new' prices either. The carpeting, tile and blinds appeared new. The facility has several buildings, so the rooms are spread out, and all are on...

Great location... The room was old and outdated but very clean, we could feel the springs of the mattress on the beds which were also obviously outdated as well and awoke in the morning with sore backs. However the price was very reasonable... Like they say you get what you pay for!

My wife and I were very happy with the service, the amenities and especially the location -- right at the start of the Cabot Trail. I would definitely stay here again. No, it's not the Ritz Carlton...but that's the point, isn't it? This is Cape Breton Island, not New York City.

This is a budget motel. Very simple and dated. I had booked one room and then cancelled it so I could book a cheaper room, but they charged me the higher price anyways, and they charged my credit card before I checked in, so I had to pay for my friend's room, too. The room I was in had carpet... More

First off, the fellow working in the office was not friendly; in fact he seemed indifferent as to whether or not we stayed there. The room had very dated furniture and a strong scent like febreeze or something sprayed just before we got there. It was slightly below average as far as what I'd expect for a motel like this....

We had the king room which was clean and the bed was comfortable. Cleaning staff were very obliging if we needed towels or other items, we just had to ask. It is about 10 - 20 minutes from various restaurants which was fine with us; eating out was planned into our vacation. The owner was pleasant, but I can see... More

Travelling with another family, we booked two rooms for our final night along the Cabot Trail recently. Checking in, I felt something a little "off" with the owner. I'm not a hotel/motel owner but if you're in the hospitality business, wouldn't it be a good practice to be, um hospitable? Werner (I'm assuming that's his name from the other poor... More

This Inn is showing its age. It is a nice spacious and clean room in the motel. The pool needs some work, although we did swim in it. Couldn't see the river from the motel, as the trees were too tall. Staff were friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a budget price and just a place to sleep,... More

The owner could not have been more accommodating and helpful. The staff were pleasant and very efficient. I would recommend this location and would stay here again next year. Great location for access to many beautiful beaches. The view from the balcony was fantastic.
