“Peace and quiet in an excellent location”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We have been coming to K'bunkport for years and are delighted to discover this little motel in such a wonderful location. We have returned several times. Room 8 is especially nice overlooking the little river and many birds. But there are lovely seatings for others in other rooms to enjoy the serenity as well. As others have said, the rooms are dated, but very clean and fitted with all of the necessities; updated TV, coffee maker, fridge, microwave, quiet airconditioning and plenty of soft pillows (a must for me). We brought our relations from North Caroliina and they loved it too!

Loved the location and the lovely garden and views of the river. The interior is a bit dated and could use refreshing, but the hospitality outshines the lack of modernity. It was a pleasure to stay so close to the shops and restaurants. Dinner next door was delicious and so nice to walk such a short distance after a long ride in the car. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Very clean little motel. We had room 8 overlooking the tidal pool. Rooms are nice, maybe a little dated. But for the money this a great place to stay. Close to everything. This is our 3rd trip to the to the area and this is the best value I have found. We would for sure go back.

Located at the scenic Ocean Ave. this small motel is a short drive and a 20 min. walk from the centre of town. The room with King Size bed looked newly decorated and was need and spacious - quite cozy for a motel actually. And the rates makes it very good value. The staff is both friendly and helpful. At the same time the nabour restaurant Mable's deserved a recommendation, as we arrived a little late and had our dinner (lobster of course) here the first night.

Room Tip: Room no. 8 has the best view overlooking the small lake (but does not have the King size bed - in st...
