The staff was excellent. The room was very comfortable and the price was very good.My wife and I would recommend this hotel to anyone without any hesitation. To our surprise they even had a special on the price for the room.

This hotel has easy access to TransCanada Highway. The staff was friendly and our room was clean if a little cluttered with extra furnishings. We received vouchers for breakfast at the attached cafe which offered a tasty breakfast. Would recommend this as a stop in Antigonish.

What a beautiful spot! Although the furnishings may be a little dated, the cleanliness of the hotel is impeccable! And the friendliness of the staff made our stay even better. From the very friendly and helpful women on the front desk, to the cheerful and wonderful ladies in the Dining Room, everyone seemed to go out of their way to make sure we were having an enjoyable stay.

Since this was our first stay in Antigonish I really have no other places to compare it to, but we would definitely stay there again!

We stayed here over night as we had a very early appointment the next morning at the local hospital. It was very quiet and comfortable. The children enjoyed the pool too.They were very good and said If we weren't going to be back for check out time that was fine just to let them know. We received vouchers for the restaurant for breakfast which was excellent. All round very good and would recommend to anyone, we would stay again. Also they gave us an excellent discount when they knew it was for a hospital appointment saving us around $ 38 . Very good place to stay .

Room Tip: We were on the top floor over looking some cottages and it was very quiet

Enjoyed our quiet stay here. Staff were friendly. Good food and good service at the restaurant. Hotel located adjacent to a mall so can easily access a grocery store & other stores. Felt room rate was higher than average

The hotel is so in need of TLC that they have forgotten how to dish out the same to their guests. But, if cleanliness is at the top of your priorities, this one will probably do. The floors are wooden and are mopped daily! (I witnessed this upon arrival and the staff confirmed this is so. ) The shower, tub, and fixtures were antiquated and difficult to adjust. There is an indoor pool (waaaay too cold) and a hot tub (waaaay too hot) and a sauna (the dry type). The location is in a parking lot with a sporting goods store as the mainstay. There is a restaurant, which is ranked #4 on Tripadvisor, but I do wonder how they got this. Our experience in the restaurant was, well, disastrous. In all fairness, we were there the weekend of the Highland Games and I think the 3/4 full restaurant was just more than they could handle. There were fireworks in the parking lot the night we stayed and no one warned us -- I woke up under attack, or so I thought, but then enjoyed watching from the window in the room. My guess is that there are slim pickin's in Antigonish for both hotels and restaurants, so this choice is probably not a bad one. We opted not to have breakfast and quickly moved on.

Room Tip: If you stay on the ground floor you will hear every footstep from the floor above.

Stopped in with no reservation with one day of travelling behind us and another to go. Great experience for us (family of 5). The room was big enough to accomodate 2 adults, a teen and two children. Indoor pool was great. Unlike other places we've stayed, the pool had great hours for the kids to swim before an early departure with a day of driving ahead. Complimentary towels at the pool too. We received discounts for breakfast the next day at the restaurant. The food was great — didn't need to stop for lunch (your mileage may vary).

Service at the front deak was very efficent and friendly.

Location: Yes, the inn is located right off of a mall parking lot but the location is very quiet.I had no issues about safety while I was checking in at 11:30 pm.

Strongly recommend for families travelling. Wanting a comfortable place to spend the night.
