First of all it was like a trailer home. We made a reservation here because in this area and this time of year everything else was booked. I booked 2 rooms for our family and gave him our credit card number to guaranty the rooms. When we arrived at 8:00 the night of our reservations I walk up to check... More

Margaree Forks is a small village on the Cabot trail with limited accommodations. Our room was clean, dated but they had just changed out the beds - so they were very comfortable. Check in process was a little slow, and we had to wait several hours before we could get into our rooms because of the new beds.

Booked this motel online. They upgraded us to a room with a kitchenette at no extra charge. Room was clean but beds uncomfortable. Nice view of the mountains but unable to see a river near by. Would stay here again but would recommend bringing food, coffee etc. Closest restaurant is 10 - 15 mins away.

We arrived just before dark and am glad we did as it was a little hard to find. Like everyone said, the rooms were dated but clean. I found the bed was very hard but we were tired from a long day of travelling so slept OK. You won't get a luxury room....but we didn't pay a luxury price either!

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 The room was old and outdated but very clean, we could feel the springs of the mattress on the beds which were also obviously outdated as well and awoke in the morning with sore backs.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....
