I recently stayed overnight at the Evergreen Inn while on a business trip to St.FX.University. I have been booking this inn for the last four years when I travel. Lynne is so personable and remembers her clients by name. The rooms are so clean and well equipped. The bed is large and very comfortable. The bathroom is huge, modern and has many amenities. I loved the plush bathrobe and slippers. It was so nice and quiet at night for sleeping. The breakfast Lynne provided was wonderful, especially the homemade muffins and scones. I look forward to staying at the Evergreen Inn again on my next business trip. Thanks Lynne.

Room Tip: I stayed in room two which had one queen sized bed, a fireplace, flat screen tv, desk, and kitchenet...

We recently stayed at the Evergreen on Oct. 28, 2013, the staff was so friendly when we arrived and upon walking into the room, we were blown away with the décor and clean smell in the room. It was fully equipped coffee maker, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv and electric fire place. Although we were in Antigonish for a Specialist appointment at the hospital the next day the Inn took it off our minds. Breakfast was great homemade scones, muffins, cereal, fruit, homemade jams. We will always try to stay here in the future!!! Hats off to Lynne.

An excellent place to stay for overnight or for longer. I was so excited when I was able to stay at the inn as it was my first choice. I drove up from Halifax for my educational conference and stayed an extra night to unwind a bit. The room was wonderful: homey and comfortable, each room is different and decorated individually to take away that hotel/motel feel. Excellent breakfast and a huge selection of movies and games for the whole family. I'll be staying here every time I'm in the area!

Room Tip: Room 2 has a huge bathroom!

I travel a lot and have stayed in many hotels. The Evergreen Inn is excellent. Spotless, friendly, warm - a real gem! Highly recommended for individuals, couples or families.
The continental breakfast is fresh and plentiful (scones, muffins, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc.)
There are only six rooms so book in advance.

We drove up to this 1970's looking "Motel". We checked in and the friendly person behind the reception in the little office gave us our key and told us the "Continental breakfast would be served in the little office reception area. We drove around to the back - standard looking doorways to enter the room - we walked into a large room - tastefully decorated with a very comfortable King bed - a small kitchen, large flat screen TV and quick internet connection. After a good night's sleep, we walked over to the office for our "Continental Breakfast" expecting cold cereal, bad coffee and maybe supermarket bread for toast with those little jellies and or margarine. What we had was excellent coffee, freshly prepared fruits, homemade outstanding scones and muffins still warm from the oven. And we got a care package to go as we checked out. There may not be any kind of view and you are off a busy road but if you are looking for a place to in the area that offers up an excellent value, with a comfortable room and good light breakfast - this should be it. We would not hesitate to return.

I stayed here again on business. Very friendly people, beautiful room excellent comfortable bed, lovely furniture including a stove fridge. and microwave.
This is without doubt one of the nicest places to stay. Home made continental breakfast. I had to leave before 6 AM so they provided a full breakfast coupon for the Snow Queen restaurant.
I have recommend the Evergreen Inn to relatives and business associates. I originally stayed here because of trip advisor recommendations and will definitely be staying here whenever I am in the area.

We booked this hotel based on the outstanding reviews on TA. I was really skeptical that it could be that good, but Antigonish was the ideal stopover for our drive between Cape Breton Island and Hopewell Rocks, so we took a chance and reserved a room for one night.

I honestly cannot say anything bad about this hotel. The price was reasonable, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and offered every amenity you find in a great B&B or luxury hotel, plus a full kitchen stocked with everything you need to serve up a meal. The only thing missing was paper towels (we bought some frozen biscuit sandwiches that needed to be wrapped to heat. Luckily, I had picked up a cookie in the office/lobby and had a couple of napkins ).

The property is like an old style motel where you park in front of your door. It is on the outskirts of town, but easy short easy drive into town. Very quiet, nice view of the countryside.

They even had 2 washer/dryers in the guest laundry room. The hotel only has 8 rooms. We stayed in a couple of large hotels on this trip that had only one washer/dryer.

i would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a stay in Antigonish.
