Reviewed July 29, 2012

Very impressed with the quality of service given to us by the owner and staff. It may not be a luxury motel but definitely luxury service. Rooms were clean, neat, and orderly. Had some issues with wifi, it was slow and would not always work but will definitely be back and will recommend to others. The owner definitely goes over and above with what he has to work with. You are treated like first class.
Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality.

We stayed at the bed and breakfast and as one reviewer put it, it is a quaint and cozy property. You get good value for your money, the breakfast included in the price was substantial and Matthew is a wonderful host. What really impressed me was how clean this place was, as in no dust on the baseboards or behind the bathroom door clean. It may seem ridiculous to note this, but that attention to detail was evident throughout all aspects of our stay.

All in all, our 3-night stay at the Lakelawn was very enjoyable. As the owner, Matthew, admits, this is not a luxury hotel, but it is a quaint and cozy property in a great location in Yarmouth. The rooms are extremely clean, and the beds are comfortable. For the price, you can't go wrong staying here.

We have been to Mexico and Cuba this year at 5 star resorts but our stay last week at the Lakelawn in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia may not have been as fancy as some resorts but the treatment we received from the owner Mathew was top of the line. He is so cordial, welcoming and always willing to make his guests feel so at home and comfortable. We had our breakfast each day at the Motel and it was unbelievable. The value for the money can 't be matched. Thank you Mathew for making our visit so memorable and we will definitely be back.

We saw the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to go with this option. Wish we hadn't. The cafe advertised was not open, the free WiFi only worked some of the time (and has very slow), and the walls are paper thin. We had neighbours who were up all night and we could here them as if they were in our room. Having said that, it was relatively inexpensive and the TV worked.

One must not be greedy like some of the others who review.
We must have our expectations inlined with what we paid.
For a motel room it was 69 dollars plus tax. Not many places in Canada offer more than a camp ground for this little.
The rooms were SUPER clean and well maintained. The grounds were so green and lucsh. The breakfast was only 15 Dollars per person but was a 5 star breakfast.
Our friends were in the room in the main house . It costs a bit more but we have the options to chooses.
I will be back. I will tell all my friends to support you because you are the kind of place that deserves to succeed for all your hard work and great effort and in your final product.

I was looking for an inexpensive motel to stay in for one night in Yarmouth and selected the Lakelawn based on tripadvisor reviews. While my expectations were adjusted based on the price point, I was quite disappointed in the room. While simple and suitable for a stopover, it was *very* musty and the odour of mold permeated it I love a classic motel as much as the next person, but the mold and dampness was concerning.

To echo the sentiments of others, the owner was very friendly and conversational. If you are looking for a night's sleep, this motel would do the job, but I would avoid a prolonged stay. I gave it the rating of "average", but a more accurate reflection would be that the rooms are poor and the service is decent/good.
