We were very pleased with the friendly staff at this hotel. The rooms were large and clean with bathrooms that appeared to be recently remodeled. There was a nice view of the bay from our windows. Breakfast was downstairs and included and nice variety of choices, as well as the Canadian specialties of beans and boiled eggs. If you have trouble on stairs, get a downstairs room because that is where the breakfast is.

We stayed one night on our journey back to MA from Nova Scotia. Check in a bit slow-but the rooms are clean and neat. A/C did not work very well-but well enough. Breakfast had a nice touch with the hardboiled eggs. A good value for the dollar. The owner added a nice touch to the bikes by laying a drying towel on each windshield in the AM.

Room Tip: If your on bikes ask for rooms in the back. Safe secure parking.

Our original reservation for our group (6 motorcyclists) was lost at another hotel. The owner also let it slip, they had no A/C. We rebooked at the Econo Lodge. What a great surprise. Check in goes a little slow. That is my only complaint about this place. If they could streamline that process, PERFECT!

Owner is very friendly, even came down and brought us more outdoor chairs. Very clean rooms. What is unique, the rooms open right to where our motorcycles were parked, and also had a backdoor to the rooms to allow access to the main part of the hotel. Laundry, breakfast, etc.

Breakfast was well above average for the standard free breakfast. You can tell it's family owned and pride of ownership is all around!

Would for sure stay there again if in the area. Great view of the Bay of Funday from the back door of our room.

Room Tip: If traveling my motorcycle, ask for the rear, downstair rooms.

We checked into the motel on Friday night and no one warned us that they were planning to roof all weekend. We would have gone elsewhere. We did understand that a tropical storm had taken place the previous weekend but we had booked in advance and no one called us to ask if we were o.k. with roofing taking place overhead.
Saturday afternoon we arrived back at the motel expecting to sit outside and enjoy the sun or rest in the room. Neither was possible. A dumpster was outside our window with roofing tiles being thrown into it. No safety tape in sight. It was noisy and we had to close our windows because of the exhaust from the truck. But it disappeared at supper time and we assumed it was over. No such luck.
We hoped to sleep in on Sunday morning since we can rarely enjoy that luxury all year long. The dumpster was deposited directly outside our window at 8 a.m. and the noise began. Then the vacuuming began in the hallways before 8:30 a.m. The motel was not fully booked.
We have enjoyed the motel in the past and stayed there several times. But we will not return. We paid full price for a room with a dumpster in front of the window and roofers overhead. Ask if they are doing any renovations before you stay here.

Room Tip: Be sure that you are not near any ongoing renovations and ask why staff vacuum hallways early in th...

Found the Econolodge in my AAA guide; very easy to drive to off of Highway 1. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom had just be redone; the shower was very nice. There are two access doors - outside door to the parking lot and inside door to the corridor. They offer a free continental breakfast in the morning and Wi-Fi. The location is in an area where it is very quiet.

Would stay here again if in the area.

We had checked out the two Hill* motels that received favorable reviews in Tripadvisor - and I don't understand why - just down the street and happened to drive by this property. At $80, it was good value, clean, and comfortable. It is on the outskirts and maybe 15 minutes to downtown, but for one night you can't go wrong. Free breakfast is also included - though basic, it will tide you over to lunch. Friendly front desk and oversize parking spaces bumped the score to very good.
